To Rowan Tripp there’s little else as thrilling as fire fighting The Missoula smoke jumpers are in Rowan’s blood: her father is a legend. She’s been fighting fires since her eighteenth birthday. Returning to the wilds of Montana for the season feels like coming home – even with reminders of the partner she lost last season still lingering.
Fortunately, this year’s rookie crop is one of their strongest ever – and Gulliver Curry’s one of the best. He’s also a walking contradiction, a hotshot fire-fighter with a big vocabulary and a winter job at a kids’ arcade.
But everything is thrown off-balance when a dark presence lashes out against Rowan, looking to blame someone for last year’s tragedy. Rowan knows she can’t complicate things with Gull – any distractions in the air or on the ground could mean the end – but if she doesn’t find someone she can lean on, she may not make it through the summer.
