Fire in one hand, ashes in the other...

Studious tutor Emmy McKay fell in love with Cash Kingston over a biology textbook, never expecting the high school football hero to give her a second thought. But his feelings for her burned just as hot. All too soon, Emmy’s choices destroyed their youthful relationship, reducing it to a pile of ash. Years later, she has landed her dream job as an ER doctor in her hometown. Now it’s time to win back her dream man.

As a firefighter and tactical medic, Cash Kingston is no stranger to white-knuckle situations. But when he learns his beautiful—and brilliant—ex-girlfriend has returned to Steele Ridge, he feels as if he’s standing on the roof of a blazing building. With no escape route in sight. Emmy is the only woman who’s ever had the power to build him up one minute and burn him down the next.

But when someone targets Emmy and they begin to suspect the danger stems from their past relationship, it’s impossible for Cash to stay detached. Will the struggle to untangle a web of half-truths bring them closer together, or will it tear them apart for good?


First love reunited! With the next books in the Steele Ridge: The Kingstons series, Kelsey Browning brings us Cash’s story! We all know and love Sheriff Maggie who’s been with us for the entire series, and Cash is her sexy firefighter brother. He had his heart broken by his first love and never quite recovered, and now here she comes barreling back into town. The characters had my attention quickly, the backstory was intriguing and the mystery and danger that soon pops into the story was a really great addition. Really enjoyed Cash and Emmy!

Emerson McKay met Cash Kingston as a tutoring assignment in high school, but a fast friendship and spark of first love was quick to follow their introduction. They were soon inseparable and everyone thought they were in it for the long haul … including Cash. Emmy’s ambition and career dreams led her to break his heart and go on to make a life for herself. Now she’s back .. and she wants the guy she left behind!

Cash loves his job as a firefighter and tactical medic, so when the promotion he’s been vying for is snatched up by returning Emmy, he’s spitting nails. First she dumps him and leaves him hanging his head in embarrassment, and now she takes the job that was supposed to be his? What more does this woman want from him?? When upset and danger seems to follow soon after she arrives in town, Cash sits up and takes notice.
