A woman who lost everything in the fires of war.
After losing her husband to a bomb in Afghanistan, military vet Erin Moore runs home to Marcus, Montana. To keep his memory alive, she follows their dream of opening a classic car garage and coffee shop, but building a successful business is hard. Hiring Ryan Walsh was her best decision so far. He’s dedicated, smart—and ridiculously appealing. But acting on her attraction to the much younger man is a huge risk for her business—and her battered heart.
A man battling the ghosts of the battlefield.
After a mortar attack took Airman Ryan Walsh’s health and high-tech career in one blast, he went home to lick his wounds. Trying to adjust to civilian life, he drifts through a series of minimum wage jobs. Then Erin hires him and his past roars to life, especially his longing for the fiery redhead. But he’s too broken for any woman, let alone a successful business owner.
When a brutal attack forces them together, sparks fly. Will the fire bond them forever or burn them to ashes?

Fighter pilot Colonel Sara Shaw longs for the wild blue yonder, but she’s stuck flying a desk in the Pentagon. The military is still a boy’s club, so she misses out on the best missions.

But as they learn to work together, Grant and Sara discover they have more in common than they expected. A tiny ember sparks heats up the icy ranch. If they fan the flame, will it bring them warmth or burn them both?
