About the book:
He's hotter than a wildfire
Trey Duval is a rancher, proud as can be of his Wildcat Ranch. He's also the top volunteer firefighter of Wildcat Bluff, Texas, the town that pulls out all the stops for its Christmas festivities.
City girl Misty Reynolds comes to Wildcat Bluff just in time to help Trey put out a suspicious fire, leading him to dub her his "Christmas angel." Unfortunately, Misty's past has left her with terrible memories of fire, and of Christmastime.
As the two are thrown together again and again, Trey finds himself wanting Misty more and more, and Misty feels stronger and braver when Trey is around. Though their trust grows slowly, their passion for each other is burning hot...

The review --
The book gets off to an awesome start with a smoking hot first line that will totally draw you in, and it keeps rolling from there. Mix up a troubleshooter who can't tell anyone what she's up to, and a hot guy who's both a cowboy and a firefighter, and it is inevitable that the sparks will fly. But what makes this book great is the mystery threading it's way all through the book.
Me, I had the culprits pegged from the beginning of the book; but it was still a very fun read. Christmas in a small Texas town is beautifully described by the author. This book is well worth the price. Delightful characters all the way through this book, plus the great locations described, and everything else, makes it a wonderful read. This author is awesome, and I would read and recommend her works any day.
