A raging fire brings the most
unexpected of gifts when firefighter Adam Collins rescues
Jared Kenny. Though unable to save Jaredís house, itís the
gorgeous, enigmatic man himself who occupies Adamís mind
more and more with each passing day. Taking a chance, Adam
brings Jared with him to his familyís cabin in the mountains
of Colorado, where close quarters destroy any chance of the
pair resisting the desire that burns between them.
Jaredís life has been a mix of chaos
and oppression. He yearns for tranquility, something he
only finds in the perfect blue of Adamís eyes. Finding that
perfect shade of blue becomes an obsession for Jared. In
the mountains Jared discovers serenity for the first time in
his life, but that peace comes with a price. Having spent
years under the control of another, Jared knows it will take
little for him to lose himself in the love Adam offers. The
question is, in order to find who he truly is, will Jared be
forced to turn his back on his one chance for happiness?
Z. A. Maxfield takes readers out of the
fire and into flames of a most passionate nature in this
fantastic story. Blue Fire is sexy, original,
and completely captivating with two utterly irresistible
heroes whose road to happiness is anything but simple.
Jared is both unusual and fascinating.
When you first meet him, his life has been upended by the
loss of his husband and home. Heís a man at loose ends, one
who has never truly experienced the freedom to find out who
he is, for reasons I wonít spoil the book by going into.
Jaredís not exactly likeable at first, but heís not
unlikable either. Heís like the puzzles he puts together Ė
beautiful but missing pieces. I loved watching him learn
about himself, work to find who he is even as he falls in
love with Adam. And the firefighter in question? Heís as
comfortable with himself and who he is as his lover is not.
Heís handsome, kind, and patient; a hero worth dreaming of.
Theyíre so unlike one another, yet both Adam and Jared are
impossible not to love. Each grabbed my heart for different
reasons and I was enchanted by how Ms. Maxfield brought them
Blue Fire is, quite
simply, a gorgeous book. I smiled, I sighed, my heart broke
and was put back together all in one sitting. One read has
not been enough; I keep returning to Blue Fire
over and over again to enjoy Jared and Adamís story. Ms.
Maxfield is an amazingly gifted writer whose work is as
enticing as the characters she creates. I Joyfully,
enthusiastically, Recommend Blue Fire!
