Jen Delazzeri never expected to see Max Rickman again. Their brief but intense affair was a mistake: they were young and he was grief stricken at losing his fiancee' in a fire. Besides, he'd tld Jen he didn't love her. All good reasons she'd kept their daugther a secret for thirteen years.
Now they're together again on fire duty--he's a smoke jumper, she as a reporter. Max wants to get to know his daughter and wants Jen to help investigate what went wrong at that long-ago tragedy.
Will rekindling their attraction be enough to create the family their daughter needs?
