Romance, fire, and arson – another deadly mix. You’ll love this second chance, action-packed, smoking hot adventure!

Can a series of wildfires lead to true love under a midnight sun?

Jon Silva is back as a wildland fire investigator, along with his well-earned reputation as a crack firefighter and notorious serial dater. But things have changed in Jon’s world. Now, there are only two women in his life—the one he wants, and the one who wants him—at any cost.

Liz Harrington returns to Alaska’s Aurora Crew, fighting wildfire to earn seed money for her new business. She resisted her attraction to Jon last fire season, but this year she’s not sure she can quell the smoldering passion that ignites whenever they’re together. Though it’s tough, she won’t let her heart be another casualty of the infamous Wildland Wolf.

Someone is setting fires on the Kenai Peninsula. When Jon is summoned to investigate and Liz dispatched to fight the blazes, more than the wildlands are heating up. What Jon discovers blows his world apart. And while Liz fights the most catastrophic fire in Alaska’s history, everything she’s worked for may soon go up in flames.

As Liz and Jon race against time to find the arsonist before their beloved Alaska turns to ash, they must find a way to overcome the lethal forces determined to keep them apart. Fire is unpredictable, and so is love – but will their second chance at romance be extinguished before it’s even lit?

Called Into Action

Called into Action
by Paris Wynters
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Publisher: Carina Press
Release Date: May 25, 2021

Penelope Ramos has dreamed of being a K-9 search-and-rescue handler since she was a little girl. Armed with a quick mind and her German shepherd, Havoc, she rides into Maple Falls, Vermont, determined to get her certification. She isn’t expecting the gruff, unreadable park ranger assigned to evaluate her skills.

Park ranger Jay Gosling is a pro. It’s clear to him that neither Penelope nor her unpredictable canine has what it takes…although his boss feels otherwise. Whatever. Jay will never have to work with them and he has half a mind to escort them both right out of town. But when a young boy goes missing, he doesn’t have that luxury.

Working side by side tests their tentative peace, but Jay and Penelope are together on one thing: they’ll both do whatever it takes to find the missing child—before it’s too late.

Excerpt:
“You look like you sucked a lemon dipped in pickle juice.” Gramps leaned his cane against the table and lowered himself to his seat, left leg held straight by a brace. The kitchen was remodeled sometime in the late fifties and still sported a white table with a metal edge and old-time metal chairs with red vinyl seats. In the eighties Gramps updated and purchase a yellow fridge and white stove. And the place always smelled like pot roast.

“And you look like you should be in bed.”

Gramps nodded to the coffee maker. The coffee was hours old and probably as thick as tar, but Gramps could drink it day or night. “Pour me a cup of that and keep your opinions quiet.” When Jay handed him a mug of sludge, he took a sip. “Why is it that your coffee always tastes like you mixed it with gasoline and manure?” Gramps shrugged and took another sip, hand that held the cup shaking slightly. Neither of them made mention of it, or the increasing frequency of it. The cup came down hard on the tabletop. “Now, tell me what has your britches tangled.”

His britches were just fine, but he sat across from his grandfather and looked down into his own cup. Muddy and so brown it looked almost black, like his mood. “Your buddy, Carter, making deals and passing sentences that…” He could tell Gramps all of it or he could sulk. Right now, he wanted to sulk.

“That what, boy? You can’t take so long with your stories. I could keel over and miss the end.” His grandfather toyed with his cup but stared at Jay so hard his skin burned. “Spit it out. Passing sentences that…?”

“That mean I’m stuck working with the woman who burned down the check station.”

Gramps raised his eyebrows. “What’s wrong with that? Is she stupid? Does she wear her shoes on the wrong feet or pick her nose? What’s the problem with her? Just don’t leave the matches lying around, and you should be safe.”


Author Interview:

1. What inspired you to write this book?

My own experiences as a search and rescue canine handler as well as those teammates around me inspired this story. And of course my canine partners were a huge influence.

2. What, if anything, did you learn when writing the book?

I had to really learn how to walk the line between fiction and telling a story with the actual technical information that is involved, especially when that information is something I work with daily.

3. What surprised you the most in writing it?

Gramps. He was soo much fun to write and I was surprised that I had that level of humor in me that made me laugh as I was writing his scenes.

5. Were any of the characters inspired by real people? If so, do they know?

Oh yes they all know. My teammates are hugely supportive.

6. Do you consider the book to have a lesson or moral?

I think the book more showcases family, even how a town is considered family. It also showcases the special bond between a working canine and its handler (something many don’t understand). And I wanted it to showcase how shelter dogs have so much potential in them to become working dogs and that they should be looked by agencies who employ working dogs.

7. What is your favorite part of the book?

Gramps hands down.
