    WARNING This review may prove to be dangerously combustible Protection of Endangered Species Fireman in the WildSo after a long dry spell heh heh Nora Roberts is ON FIRE I'm SO punny Okay I'll stop now I've mentioned this before and I'll say it again Nora Roberts' characters have the BEST careers ever Whether she's writing about a pastry chef or a journalist or wildfire fighter you always feel like you're standing

    This was all new territory to me I had never come across Smokejumpers before so I guess we do not have them in Australia Maybe although our bush fires are savage they have some basic difference to American wildfires Anyway as I said smoke jumping was new to me and all very interestingAs usual Nora's characters were well drawn and entertaining She always writes witty dialogue and manages to keep her romances very roman

    5 Blazing Stars I loved everything about this bookand then someSo much to love about this story First and foremostGulliver Curry I really enjoyed his character He wasn’t always front and center in the plot but he had such a strong presence that he carried a lot of the book He handled Rowan with ease and she was not an easy woman to handle His determination to be with her was so sexy he was dominant but not in a demandi

    ★★★★½ Review of audiobook It is one thing to fight a forest fire and another thing all together to parachute into one; however that is exactly what the Missoula Smoke Jumpers do Nora Roberts has decided to write a story that follows several storylines of these select heroes and manages a murder mystery to boot Rebecca Lowman does an excellent job of narrating this one keeping the voice inflections varied enough f

    DNF at 32% which is about 4 hours of listeningI'm super bummed that I didn't like this one I'm a big fan of the audio narrator Rebecca Lowman who killed it in her narration of Landline so I had high hopes for this one Again Rebecca Lowman delivered a great performance Her male voices were raspy and sexy and her female voices were also pitch perfect However even an awesome narration couldn't save this one for me For some reason

    This was another really good romance suspense done Nora Roberts style In all of her books she infuses so much about the characters life to paint a vivid picture of how they live and think a device that can works great but sometimes consumes the story too much In Chasing Fire the details about smoke jumping were fascinating relevant and not over done The heroine is the captain of a smoke jumper suad a tough lady who takes her job of

    Still a bit on the fence about this book The hero is legend I found Simon the hero in NR's previous offering The Search to be a bit of a wanker he's a bit alpha but not overbearing he's sweet romantic and not ashamed to admit it he's funny witty and he knows what he wants; the heroine is strong confident kicks major arse albeit she has some mummy abandonment issues; and the dialogue between them is excellent and really cracked me up Th

    Why do I keep reading Nora Roberts? Her characters have become stilted predictable and none too personableChasing Fire is about a female fire jumper a murder mystery and a romance with a rookie fire jumper You'll figure out the murderer uickly so don't read it from a murder mystery standpointThis book missed the mark Maybe I'm stereotyping but I would think that a female fire jumper is a bit of a rarity You wouldn't know it to read the bo

    35 stars The solution to the puzzle was predictable but oh I felt for the smoke jumpers The setting is truly immersive the heat the danger the camaraderie The female lead in particular is well rounded and interesting and both storytelling and prose are good A pleasant read He looked at her as they crossed to the trailhead “I’m all about eual pay for eual work A firm believer in ability determination brains having nothing to do with gend
