Two women have a passionate interest in the same piece of land…
Elaine Thomas has a sworn duty to protect National Forest Service land, especially from vicious and destructive poachers. About to cite a thoughtless squatter for an illegal campfire, she’s flummoxed when she’s the one who gets a lecture about tromping on precious seedlings.
Botanist Devon McKinney has permission to be camping in the protected area as part of her report on recovery from a toxic spill. Her deadlines are personal and professional and she’s not going to let anyone slow her down, even if Ranger Elaine is far from the ham-fisted voice of authority she’d expected.
Neither woman has any professional intention of tolerating the least deviation from her assignment. Fortunately, working together gets easier and easier, though both may learn that a fire running wild will burn.
Newcomer Lynn James tells a fascinating story of women working to preserve the wilderness wrapped in a sizzling romance that smolders with passion.
