Cowboy Buddy James isnít happy. Even
though he has a job doing what he loves, heís in a small town
where being gay is as commonplace as a three-dollar bill.
Buddy wants to meet someone to spend time with, not another
stranger that he wonít remember come morning.
Toby Lawrence, novice Smokejumper, just
did the stupidest thing heís ever done, he hit on his boss
Eli. He just didnít know that Eli was taken. Toby will find
out that this embarrassing mistake might be the best thing
thatís happened to him in a long time, because Eli knows just
what to do to make Toby forget his embarrassment.
When Toby and Buddy meet through Eliís
matchmaking efforts sparks fly. They completely forget to be
self-conscious of the set-up and go on to get to know each
other. The problem is that they both have jobs that are
demanding. Plus, Toby is skittish about letting their
attraction run away with them. But Buddy is patient and
willing to let Toby set the pace.
Christmas Fire is a story
about the charm of finding new love in an unexpected way. I
spent the entire story knowing that Buddy and Toby belonged
together. The sensuality that Julia Talbot always brings into
the love scenes was felt though out the story. Ms. Talbot is
on my must buy list and reading this book confirms my opinion
that you canít go wrong buying one of her books. If you have
read Jumping into Things or Landing with Both Feet,
you definitely want to pick up this book. Even if you
havenít, you should get Christmas Fire, because
you will love this book on its own. I highly recommend this
book as a must read for m/m romance fans.
