'Tis said of love that it sometimes goes, sometimes flies; runs with one, walks gravely with another; turns a third into ice, and sets a fourth in a flame: it wounds one, another it kills: like lightning it begins and ends in the same moment: it makes that fort yield at night which it besieged but in the morning; for there is no force able to resist it.
--Miguel de Cervantes
On the losing side of a love affair, Austin Walker re-ignites his passions with a rival firefighter, all while a case of arson threatens everyone inside the White Pine fire station.
Austin never imagined a one-night stand would change his life, but from the moment he gave into desire, the flames of ambition were stoked. As a fire at the legendary Masterson House rages, Austin finds himself hailed a hero, and the prime candidate to be named to the White Pine Fire Department's team for the annual Fire Ball contest. But the sexy, powerful Joey Silva, from the opposing fire department, is who truly ignites Austin's heart.
Tucker once called White Pine his home, but after following his heart and becoming a successful musician, he has returned to pick up the pieces of his shattered life. Taking up with the first love of his life, Ian Masterson, who just survived the fire that nearly consumed his home, Tucker must battle small-minded people as well as his father, the local fire chief, to find happiness and love.
With White Pine getting set for the annual Hibernation Festival, the highlight of which is Fire Ball, secrets are revealed, and alliances renewed. Bragging rights are on the line, not only for the village of White Pine, but for the sexually-charged men who live within its borders.
