Firefighter Burke Callaway has been living in the shadows since the tragic death of his fiancée. He had no interest in coming out of the dark until the beautiful and unpredictable Maddie came back to town.
Maddie Heller is the ultimate free spirit. Her love of life and cooking taking her all over the globe, and only a few people know that her easy smile covers a personal tragedy. With a new job offer in San Francisco, Maddie thinks it might be time to stay in one place, especially when she runs into Burke again.
Burke was the handsome, sexy hero of her youth who could do no wrong. Maddie was the pretty, fun-loving girl of his youth who loved to break the rules. They were opposites in every way, but there was always a connection. It was just never the right time or the right place - until maybe now.
But their budding love story suddenly takes a dangerous turn, and a series of escalating incidents makes them realize that falling in love might not be just scary but also deadly.
I have read pretty much everything Barbara Freethy has written and have enjoyed every book I've read. I love her series and always find myself looking toward to the next books to come out. This series is no different. The Callaways series is great.
