Ever since she turned eighteen, Rowan has been a 'smoke jumper', fighting back the ferocious forest fires that sweep through the Montana mountains each year. She can read a wildfire like no one else - and is prepared to put her life on the line again and again to save others.
He's also a walking contradiction, a hotshot firefighter with a big vocabulary and a winter job at a kid's arcade. He came to Missoula to follow in the footsteps of Lucas "Iron Man" Tripp, yet he's instantly more fascinated by his hero's daughter.
Rowan, as a rule, doesn't hook up with other smoke jumpers, but Gull is convinced he can change her mind. And damn if he doesn't make a good case to be an exception to the rule.
Everything is thrown off balance, though, when a dark presence lashes out against Rowan, looking to blame someone for last year's tragedy. Rowan knows she can't complicate things with Gull - any distractions in the air or on the ground could be lethal. But if she doesn't find someone she can lean on when the heat gets intense, her life may go down in flames. Get A Copy. Hardcover , pages. More Details Original Title. Rowan Tripp , Gulliver Curry.

Protection of Endangered Species: I'm SO punny! Okay, I'll stop now. Whether she's writing about a pastry chef, or a journalist or wildfire fighter, you always feel like you're standing right there with them, seeing how they go about their lives, and WARNING: Whether she's writing about a pastry chef, or a journalist or wildfire fighter, you always feel like you're standing right there with them, seeing how they go about their lives, and learning the ins and outs of each career.
Now to be honest, I'm not very domestic, so the florist and pasty chef, while interesting, weren't really anything to go 'WOW' about! On the other hand, Chasing Fire totally gripped my attention. Rowan Tripp is a senior fire fighter for the Missoula A. Zulies fire fighting team.
She's been working as a wildfire fighter since she was eighteen, helping to control and put out forest fires across Western United States. She lost her partner the season before, and she's still haunted by the memory of his death.
However, despite the tragedy having been ruled an accident, someone's not satisfied with the resolution of the matter, and is taking it into his or her own hands. Along with Gulliver Curry, a rookie who's steadily working his way into her hitherto impenetrable heart, Rowan must fight fire on several fronts - from the wild, uncontrolled blaze of forest fire, to the sneaky, malicious spark that might be growing within her own team.
The suspense part of this story is fairly straight forward. If you're looking for a truly twisty murder mystery, this is not the book for you. It's obvious almost from the beginning who the rotten apple is, and in truth, the mystery sort of takes a backseat to the awesome battle between man and nature. This book clings very tenuously to the title of 'romantic suspense'. It is more of a general fiction book, dealing with the lives of smoke jumpers. The vivid descriptions of wildfire suppression are trademark Nora.
You get drawn into the world of the smoke jumpers, a harsh, taxing life where one is always on the alert for the warning siren to sound; where suppression means twelve-to-thirty hours stints in the middle of a wildfire. The smoke jumpers take their lives in their hand every time they jump out of a place and face Mother Nature in all her glorious fury.
The romance, too was trademark Nora, sweet and appealing, without getting sappy. I'm a little in love with Gull She knows what she wants, and she can't be dominated.
Gull is warm and sweet and funny, willing to take orders from Rowan and confident in his masculinity. The growing affection and trust between the two romantic leads, interspersed with glimpses of their interaction with the rest of the close-knit smoke jumpers, and a parallel love story involving Rowan's father, comes together beautifully. I was a little disappointed with Nora's last two offerings, Black Hills and The Search , so I'm glad to see that this book brings back the magic that characterizes Nora books for me.
This is actually a tight-paced, well-written book that I would recommend to anybody - even people who aren't generally fans of romantic suspense. Go read it, guys, it's awesome! View all 23 comments. Apr 06, Phrynne rated it really liked it Shelves: This was all new territory to me.
I had never come across Smokejumpers before so I guess we do not have them in Australia. Maybe, although our bush fires are savage, they have some basic difference to American wildfires. Anyway, as I said, smoke jumping was new to me and all very interesting. As usual Nora's characters were well drawn and entertaining. She always writes witty dialogue and manages to keep her romances very romantic and down to earth at the same time.
The story was good if a bit ove This was all new territory to me. The story was good if a bit over padded with technical stuff from time to time, and I came no where near working out who the murderer was until he outed himself towards the end. A good, clean, comfortable, fun read. View all 5 comments. I loved everything about this book…and then some!! So much to love about this story!! First and foremost…Gulliver Curry! I really enjoyed his character. He handled Rowan with ease, and she was not an easy woman to handle.
His determination to be with her was so sexy, he was dominant, but not in a demanding way. He set his sights on her and wormed his way into her l 5 Blazing Stars! Hard for me to explain what it was about him, but he is now one of my favorite heroes. Rowan was a tenacious woman, and I loved the fact that she was not only a smoke jumper, but a crew boss, and a damn good one at that.
He runs a jump school and meets Ella, who has come to cash in on her birthday gift, a tandem jump. The chemistry between these two was HOT!!
It really added another layer to this already incredible story! Their relationship brought a huge smile to my face, maybe it has to do with my age, but I thought it was just lovely! There is a host of wonderful secondary characters, but the one that stuck out for me was a smoke jumper named Dobie. A good old Kentucky boy, whose down home personality and way with words added some charming humorous moments.
I adored him. I would love to read a book about Dobie, do you hear me Nora Roberts?? Nora Roberts wrote a well-rounded story, made all the more interesting with the Missoula smoke jumpers as the focus of the story line. So much so, that I could tell immediately whose dialogue it was without any names being mentioned. I felt every emotion they did and Ms. Lowman brought excitement, calm, pain, sadness, joy, and sensuality into the read at just the right moments. She was spot-on with each character, especially Dobie.
Truly amazing! This along with The Witness , are my two favorite Nora Roberts books, and I highly recommend both of them. Jumping into danger! One wrong move or shift of the wind, can mean a fiery death!
So brave!! View all 37 comments. It is one thing to fight a forest fire and another thing all together to parachute into one; however, that is exactly what the Missoula Smoke Jumpers do.
Nora Roberts has decided to write a story that follows several storylines of these select heroes and manages a murder mystery to boot. Rebecca Lowman does an excellent job of narrating this one, keeping the voice inflections varied enough for me to differentiate the multiple characters.
I enjoyed Rowan Tripp and Gulliver Curry's love story — all fifteen hours and ten minutes of it. It was also realistically pleasant to see this kick-ass heroine be less than perfect when her father, a Smoke Jumper legend himself, finds love too.
There are several compelling characters in this fictional account of this small western Montana community, from the firefighters, to the ancillary staff, to the police detectives investigating the murder.
I definitely recommend this read — or listen! View all 16 comments. Mar 19, Heather K dentist in my spare time rated it it was ok Shelves: I'm super bummed that I didn't like this one. I'm a big fan of the audio narrator, Rebecca Lowman , who killed it in her narration of Landline , so I had high hopes for this one.
Again, Rebecca Lowman delivered a great performance. Her male voices were raspy and sexy and her female voices were also pitch perfect. However, even an awesome narration couldn't save this one for me. For some reason, even 4 hours in, this book just had no plot. I mean, the people jumped into fire and ate and slept and flirted, but there was NO structure!
Nothing really happened, and I got tired of waiting for something exciting to start. This was a really different experience for me than my other Nora Roberts book, The Witness , which made my favorites list.
I was so hoping for a repeat performance but I couldn't even muster the energy to finish this one. View all 4 comments. Jun 03, Kat rated it it was amazing Shelves: Rowan and Gull are both firefighters out in rural Missoula, jumping out of planes and spending days at a time cutting down trees and creating fire breaks to stop forest fires.
Naturally, Gull is different. Last season, Rowan lost one of her teammates, and is haunted by his death. But when accidents and attacks start happening on base in connection to her, and her fallen comrade, things start getting real. I loved the way this one kept me guessing until the very end!

This was another really good romance suspense done Nora Roberts style. In all of her books she infuses so much about the characters life to paint a vivid picture of how they live and think, a device that can works great but sometimes consumes the story too much. In Chasing Fire the details about smoke jumping were fascinating, relevant, and not over done.
The heroine is the captain of a smoke jumper squad, a tough lady who takes her job of protecting her crew seriously. When a tragedy occurs, it This was another really good romance suspense done Nora Roberts style. When a tragedy occurs, it begins to haunt her.
The story takes place a year later, when a hot new smoke jumper joins her team. He is fascinated by her, but respectful of her boundaries. They build a professional friendship, but there is no mistake that both want more. The romance had a nice, slow build up. The suspense aspect was interesting, but highly predictible. Still, the story and characters were so engaging I didn't really mind.
Someone was sabotaging the equipment of the jumpers, destroying property, and even commiting murder. It was well thought out, and didn't rely on dumb luck. There was also a sweet secondary romance with her dad, I liked him a lot so was happy for him to find love too.
The audiobook was well narrated too! I enjoyed listening to this narrator. If not for the predictibility of the bad 'guy', I would have rated this a bit higher. View all 7 comments. Still a bit on the fence about this book. The supporting characters Still a bit on the fence about this book.
The supporting characters are well developed and endearing, and the world of the Missoula Smokejumpers was clearly very thoroughly researched. Okay, there's a couple of murders here and there I guessed the perpetrator straight off; go me! It was interesting, and entertaining, and well-written because that's what NR does , but it lacked the grab-me-by-the-throat-and-make-me-stay-up-all-night-reading-because-I-want-to-know-what-happens-and-who-cares-if-I-have-to-do-experiments-on-zero-sleep-because-it-was-absolutely-worth-every-hour-I-spent-awake-reading-this-book punch of most of her other books that I have read.
Or maybe it was just my mood when I started reading it. I do, however, kind of want to skydive now My feet are staying solidly planted in this plane".
I'm sure I'd enjoy it once I was actually free-falling, but getting from plane to sky would require physical force. Jun 06, Reading rated it it was ok Shelves: Why do I keep reading Nora Roberts? Her characters have become stilted, predictable, and none too personable.
Chasing Fire is about a female fire jumper, a murder mystery, and a romance with a rookie fire jumper. You'll figure out the murderer quickly so don't read it from a murder mystery standpoint. This book missed the mark. Maybe I'm stereotyping, but I would think that a female fire jumper is a bit of a rarity.
You wouldn't know it to read the book. Struggles related to fire fighting are ther Why do I keep reading Nora Roberts?
What is Kobo Super Points?
Struggles related to fire fighting are there, but never really felt by the reader. The protagonist is another one of those "do it all" characters that are so prevalent in fiction right now - beautiful, a lead trainer for fire jumpers, and can throw a punch that takes a man to the ground. As with all of Roberts' characters in the last 20 books or so, the character is frank to the point where you really won't care for her. The dialogue follows the same patterns as Roberts' other books of late.
Maybe when you are as prolific a writer as Roberts, it's hard to have originality. All I know is that I used to like Roberts' books, but now I read them out of habit and am always disappointed. The solution to the puzzle was predictable but oh, I felt for the smoke jumpers. The setting is truly immersive, the heat, the danger, the camaraderie. The female lead in particular is well-rounded and interesting and both storytelling and prose are good.
A pleasant read. He looked at her as they crossed to the trailhead. A firm believer in ability, determination, brains having nothing to do with gender. Cautiously open, I repeat. But there are lines. Oct 18, fleurette rated it really liked it Shelves: I can't go wrong with Nora Roberts, I enjoyed most of her books and she is definitely one of my favourite authors ever.
Unfortunately, this time I wasn't in the mood to read anything, so I struggled even with this book. As much as I enjoyed the story and the characters, this book didn't grab me as much as some other ones from Nora Roberts.
And I'm not sure if the reason was my lack of enthusiasm about reading anything or maybe the story is not as good as some others. I believe the reason is most I can't go wrong with Nora Roberts, I enjoyed most of her books and she is definitely one of my favourite authors ever. I believe the reason is mostly my reading wall. I really liked the main idea of the story about the smoke jumpers and the glimpse into the world I even didn't know exists. That was exciting. Also, Nora Roberts is great in making her characters not only likeable but completely three-dimensional.
Rowan and Gull are not an exception. I also enjoyed the background romance part which is quite sweet. The suspense part is highly entertaining, however I found the final answer a bit too easy regarding all the previous events.
