The opening scene of Bella Andre's Can't Help Falling in Love - the third installment in her Sullivan's series - drags you gasping for breath into a fiery inferno and it only heats up from there.
Megan Harris lost her Navy Fighter-pilot husband five years ago, and since then she's vowed to steer clear of anything - and anyone - dangerous while she raises her daughter, alone. When an apartment fire threatens everything she holds dear, she may just have to reevaluate what really matters in her life.
Gabe Sullivan has been a firefighter for the past ten years. He's the best at what he does. He may have a dangerous job, but he's not a risk taker. Everything he does has a backup plan. That is until he breaks all the rules to rescue Megan and her daughter from a burning building.
Gabe manages to get Megan and Summer to safety, but is injured in the fire. Megan and Gabe's attraction is intense from beginning to end. But Megan wants safe and boring. She needs to know her future-husband, and Summer's step-dad, will come home to them every night, unlike her first husband did. And Gabe made the mistake of getting involved with a victim once, and he has the emotional scars to prove it. But Megan's no victim and never has been. And while Gabe may run into what others run from, he always plays it smart.
With the help of some sneaky, but well-meaning, family members - and enough smoking-hot sex to set off a five-alarm blaze - Megan and Gabe might just find everything they've been looking for. Because sometimes you just Can't Help Falling In Love.
Gabe Sullivan risks his life every day as a firefighter in San Francisco. But after learning a brutal lesson about professional boundaries, he knows better than to risk his heart to his fire victims ever again. Especially the brave mother and daughter he saved from a deadly apartment fire...and can't stop thinking about.
Megan Harris knows she owes the heroic firefighter everything for running into a burning building to save her and her seven-year-old daughter. Everything except her heart. Because after losing her navy pilot husband five years ago, she has vowed to never suffer through loving - and losing - a man with a dangerous job again.
Only, when Gabe and Megan meet again and uncontrollable flames of desire ignite between them, how can he possibly ignore her courage, determination, and beauty? And how can she deny not only his strong bond with her daughter.but the way his sweetly sensual kisses are challenging her to risk everything she's been guarding for so long?
This winter, if one - or both - of them aren't careful, they just might end up falling in love.
