On the Mountain

My Wild Rose Press book, Firefly Mountain, is on sale for $0.99. It's a good time to visit Vermont and see what happens when a sexy firefighter and a sassy photographer work together to catch an arsonist. Things will heat up... whether they want them to or not.


Firefighter Patrick Barre is determined to hide away in the woods of Vermont. He's content to do his job, remodel his house, and enjoy the company of his arson-detection dog, Midas. Scars from the fire that destroyed his family keep him from letting anyone into his life.

Gini Claremont uses her camera to celebrate the beauty of life. Nature soothes her, while anger is dangerous for Gini--and anyone near her. If she doesn't guard her emotions, her surroundings could go up in flames. Living alone, keeping busy, and letting her family keep watch on her is best for everyone.

When an arsonist declares war on their town, Patrick and Gini reluctantly band together to sift through the ashes, each holding a secret close to the heart. As the arson escalates, so does their mutual attraction. Will teaming up put out the fires, or start a whole new one?

Some favorite lines from Firefly Mountain:

“You know anyone that likes nipples Italian style?” Haddy came out of the bathroom still rubbing at the wet, red-orange stain on her blouse. When she looked up and saw Jonah standing there, her face reddened.


Gini peered at Patrick, who sat perfectly still as if he were holding his breath. Did he want her help? Need it? What else did he need?


No pictures. No family talk. Too many rules to Patrick Barre. So rigid and armored. And yet, when Gini had hugged him in the hospital, he was none of those things.

Fun fact:

Many of the renovations Patrick Barre makes to his Vermont home in the story are based on real home improvement projects my husband and I have made to our own home in the woods of Vermont.

Good luck with the sale. I spent a couple of fall seasons in Stowe back in my youth. Soooo pretty there! Where in Vermont are you?

Christine, good luck with your sales strategy! Like you, I use names of places for my characters' last names. Great minds think alike :-)
