Light My Fire (Susan May Warren) – Review

Light My Fire Review Banner

~ About the Book ~

When western Alaska erupts in a devastating fire, the elite firefighting crew of the Jude County Smokejumpers is called in to save the day. They’ll do anything to stop the fire, including fighting alongside a crew of local prisoners.

The last thing they expect is a jailbreak and when the prisoners disappear into the forest with one of their own, they’ll have to fight not only the fire, but for the freedom of their friends…during the Summer of the Burning Sky.


Book 1: Light My Fire

Former bad-boy Tucker Newman has learned his lesson—as the temporary team leader of the Jude County Smokejumpers, he’s all about following the rules to keep his team safe. Especially when he has to partner with a group of local low-security prisoners to knock down the raging fire. But the prisoners are not who they seem, and when they stage a break, kidnapping one of his teammates, he’ll have to break every rule he knows to get her back. Continue reading

Top Ten Tuesday – Coming Up On My TBR!


Happy Tuesday, book lovers! According to That Artsy Reader Girl, today’s post is technically Books to Read by the Pool or Summer TBR, but as I sit here shivering and listening to the rain pouring down outside, I can’t bring myself to even joke about this being a summer TBR. It is well and truly winter here in Australia!

BUT, I can still get very excited about the books that are coming up on my TBR over the next three months! If you want to know more about any of these titles, then clicking on the cover will take you to Amazon (affiliate links). I should also point out that, while these are all new releases or upcoming releases, I’m not necessarily reading them all in the month they release. However, this is roughly the order I will be reading them in.

I’m so excited about the variety and the stories that await me!





Are any of these on your TBR? I’d love to know which books you’re looking forward to!

Honeysuckle Dreams banner

This review is posted as part of TLC’s Book Tour for Honeysuckle Dreams


~ About the Book ~

Brady Collins is juggling full-time fatherhood with the booming auto repair business he runs out of his barn. His ex-wife’s sudden death has shaken him, but the devastating news that follows leaves him reeling: Sam is not his biological son.

When Sam’s wealthy maternal grandparents decide they want custody of the child, Brady knows he’s in for the fight of his life. Brady’s attorney tips him off that one major life change would virtually assure him of winning guardianship of baby Sam at the final hearing: the stability of an impending marriage. And his friend Hope is willing to step in as the loving and devoted fiancée.

Local radio celebrity Hope Daniels has been driven by a solitary goal her entire life, and she’s finally been offered her dream job—in Atlanta. Unfortunately, her arrangement with Brady requires her presence in Copper Creek, and she is faced with missing the chance of a lifetime or standing in the way of a dear friend’s dreams.

Both Hope and Brady would give their lives for beautiful Sam. But can they give their trust to one another? With this new novel in the Blue Ridge Romance series, Honeysuckle Dreams shines light on the complicated and beautiful angles of love. Continue reading

Weekend Book Buzz – 16/17 June 2018

Weekend Book Buzz

Welcome to the Weekend Book Buzz! We’ve definitely hit winter here in the Hunter Valley, New South Wales. I know it’s probably pretty mild compared to many of my readers who get snowed on, but for this summer baby, it’s feeling bitterly cold now. Of course, it does make it easier to get cozy with a book, but really, any weather is reading weather, so I wouldn’t mind if I didn’t need to get quite so cozy! Hope you’re staying warm (or cool, as the case may be) wherever you are in the world!

Now, since you’re here, how about a little book news?
