He's strong, sexy, confident and totally comfortable in his own skin. The story moved at a quick pace, and while I had no trouble figuring out the "whodunnit" I loved the ride just the same.
THese are the kind of characters NR is strongest with and, in my opinion, the kind of story she rocks. There's a side romance invovling Ro's dad and that was fun to read as well. Highly recommended for Nora Roberts fans.
Apr 23, jv poore rated it liked it. Could I be growing bored with Ms. I didn't love the Bridal series, so I have been looking forward to this book. For me, it fell short of my hopes and expectations. As always, the characters were amazing, the detail provided about the job of the jumpers was exquisite, the plot just didn't pull me in.
All in all, it was a fun read, the sort of book to take to the beach, it just didn't feel like the Ms. This is the story about a fire jumping unit that is experiencing a really rough season following a tragic death the season before. The heroine is name Rowan Tripp and is the only daughter of famous fire jumper Lucas "Ironman" Tripp. She is a woman who is very independent and very stubborn.
Someone who resits change and avoids long term relationships. She is very good at her job though and it is one very important to her. The hero is Gull Gulliver Curry.
About the Author
He was a firefighter and is now a new rec This is the story about a fire jumping unit that is experiencing a really rough season following a tragic death the season before.
He was a firefighter and is now a new recruit for the fire jumpers. He also owns kid arcade. He is someone that is very good at what he does when it is something he wants to pursue.
An intelligent and very sensible man who looks at all angles when dealing with a situation and is laid back and gets alone with everyone.
Gull pursues a relationship with Rowan even though she resits at first. But has more things happen they become close and often relay on each other and their friendship and relationship grows. Gull also helps Rowan in many personal things she goes through outside of the unit issues. A secondary relationship between Rowan's Dad Lucas and a woman named Ella.
Lucas meets Ella when she does a sky dive through his Sky Dive business. It is really lovely to see a relationship development between these two. Ella is really open and kind. Lucas is really kind but is often shy. The suspense comes from the team fighting fires, murders, and accidents that happen on the job.
Why not a high rating? I actually really enjoyed the story but I often had a hard time with Rowan in that I felt she could be extreme difficult and childish. She had issues growing up with her mom and it carried over even though she didn't want to admit it. She does grow so this helps and I really loved the Gull, Lucas, Ella, and many other characters as well. Jun 07, Jennie rated it it was ok Shelves: All in all, I'd give it 2. I liked it better than okay, but not enough to merit 3.
The thing that bothered me most was the sentence structure. It was terrible. I could accept if she used this sentence style sometimes, as a change up in dialogue, but they just permeated the narrative. It felt like Roberts wrote the book in a hurry but never came bac All in all, I'd give it 2. It felt like Roberts wrote the book in a hurry but never came back to flesh out the sentences, and it detracted from the story.
I had to read and reread sentences to find the subject or the verb, and more often than not, there wasn't one. The second thing that bothered me was the deplorable predictability. Not even pages in, with almost left to go, and I already knew whodunit.
I hate to sound like a know-it-all, but it was really just too obvious, and the lack of suspense made the rest of the read that much more tedious.
The third and final point on my rant list is the love interest. Gulliver Curry. Gull is everything a woman could ever fantasize over, and then some. He's witty, funny, brainy, seductive, ridiculously attractive, good in bed, thoughtful, and caring.
Oh and let's not forget rich, the voice of reason, incredibly fast, insightful, protective, and a real live romantic. He's got Tony Stark's car, a great bod, and a penchant for big words and Shakespeare references. I wouldn't have been surprised if he started to sparkle and called himself Edward Cullen.
Don't get me wrong, I love a fantasy guy as much as the next person, but come on. She didn't even try to make him realistic; the guy's flawless. Despite my hateful ranting, there were bits that I liked.
There were quite a few witty parts that had me chuckling to myself. And Gull may be too perfect, but that doesn't stop giving a girl flowers in a bottle from being adorable. Rowan is a great character, a take-charge, kick-butt woman with zero tolerance for nonsense; I love her spark, no pun intended. Okay, maybe a little bit intended. The supporting characters were lovable and engaging.
Most of all, I liked the fire jumping. It's exciting, intense, and not something I've read about before, so I found it really interesting. But that's as far as the praise goes, so we're left with 2. Good enough to take up some time, but don't expect fireworks. Romance realista y bonito. Enamorada de los personajes: Es una excelente profesional. Gull es el hombre ideal: May 20, AliciaJ rated it really liked it Shelves: Great read, as usual for Nora.
Strong characters, good mystery, and snappy dialogue. Lots of action too.
Jul 21, Lakshmi C rated it really liked it. I've been on a re-reading spree recently, anyone else try something familiar? Nora Roberts explores new territory with this one. She introduces you to the brave, dangerous world of smoke jumpers and you can see the action unfold. Rowan was tough, loyal and guarded. Gulliver Curry was charming, clever, strong with bottomless patience.
And romantic. Somehow he made me think of gentle giants, instant noodles and spicy food. The murders in this book were, personal, brutal and the crew was full of unlik I've been on a re-reading spree recently, anyone else try something familiar?
The murders in this book were, personal, brutal and the crew was full of unlikely suspects and close friends. If you are an avid Nora Roberts fan, you can guess how the process of elimination worked but it still engages your curiosity. Overall, a nice stand alone title. It's wildfire season, so I thought this book was "in-season". We had just been to Breckenridge earlier in July and the Peak 2 fire had been fought by one of the top teams in the country. It brings home how important the firefighters jobs are.
The characters, story line and mystery are good, but for me they were dragged down with too much detail of the firefighting.
Some of the scenes were exciting and some felt more like a down load of all the research NR did for the book. It was fairly easy to d It's wildfire season, so I thought this book was "in-season". It was fairly easy to determine the "bad guy", but I thought the pace and the clues were still well done. Although I did like Gull and Rowan together, there were numerous times when alone and together they were just too much physical perfection.
I tire of perfect characters. And then Gull has to be rich too? At times it was just too much. I also felt their relationship felt more like a flash fire that would burn out since it seemed to be based so much on physical.
I did like the secondary romance of Rowan's dad Iron Man Tripp and Ella, a principal at a local school. It helped to add dimension to the relationship of Rowan and her dad as well. It's a small detail but in our school district you just can't see the principal having such a close friendship with a cook in the school like Ella did with Dolly's first victim mom. So for me there were a few scenes that just felt off like NR tried too hard to pull Ella into scenes besides those with Iron Man Tripp.
Dec 23, Tina rated it liked it Shelves: Liked this one quite a bit. Loved the camaraderie NR created with the smoke jumpers. She did a great job of creating different personalities amongst all the characters complete with realistic quirks.

Nice amount of everday humor. In contrast to her last few stand-alones, I actually liked this heroine as much as I liked the hero. Rowan was earthy, a little bawdy, knew her job, and was incredibly competent.
I didn't feel disconnected from her like I have from some previous NR heroines. Gull was a great hero. I also liked the b-romance with Rowan's Dad. Now that was an utterly charming romance especially because this guy, a legend in the forest firefighting circles known as Lucas 'Iron Man' Tripp, a big strong, brawny handsome man, was a complete goober around the lady he liked.
It was sweet and lovely to read. The suspense element was integrated into the story strongly. NR did a smart thing by allowing us to know and get invested in all the characters, and giving them all traits and personalities that made them 3-dimensional. So when it becomes evident that the villain of the story is part of the 'family', the reader begins to get nervous that it isn't someone you like. I have to take a few points off the story though. A reader new or fairly new to NR won't notice, but she definitely has some writerly ticks.
One thing that took me completely out of the story was when Ro and Gull were talking about the possible suspects. The conversation, the cadences, the rhythm of the dialogue, the word choices -- it all sounded like it was coming straight out of Eve Dallas' mouth.
It was disorienting. But that is a minor nit. All in all this was a nice page turner.

No hay duda que el libro me ha resultado entretenido y algunas partes atrapan Mar 20, jenjn79 rated it really liked it Recommended to jenjn79 by: I know I'm biased because I'm a huge Nora Roberts fan, but it's a rare day that she writes a book that I don't really enjoy.
This year's hardcover release, "Chasing Fire," was no exception. I was hooked into this book pretty quick. Series Note: No series connections. Fire season is approaching Missoula, Montana and smoke-jumper Rowan Tripp is returning to base to prepare for the physical demands to come.
But this year, coming back isn't as easy after losing her jump partner the year before. Still Rowan knows how to focus on the tasks at hand. And one of those tasks is helping put a cast of rookies through the paces to see who will make the cut an who won't. One of those rookies is Gulliver Curry, a California hotshot firefighter. Gull is instantly attracted to sexy, independent Rowan. But Rowan has a policy of never getting involved with fellow smoke-jumpers. So Gull will have to work extra hard to work his way in And when danger rears its head Gull plans to be right there at Rowan's side.
Like all of Nora Robert's recent books, this one takes a certain subject matter and jumps right into it full boar. It's someone NR excels at. She doesn't keep you on the periphery of the subject, she immerses you in it. Some readers don't care for that, and some, like me, enjoy it a great deal. I like to feel like I'm a part of the story and NR knows how to do that. So you really an excellent sense of all the nuances and the ambiance of the situation - the area, the job, the fire, the danger, the camaraderie.
It was well done. Though my one complaint in this area was the lingo I'm not sure if it's because it was explained once I it didn't catch in my head so later on I was confused or if NR just assumed we'd know enough to get it. Either way, there were times when the characters were fighting fires and I wasn't quite sure what exactly they were doing because the terminology lost me.
It wasn't quite a minor issue, but nor was it a huge one, just something that could have been better but it didn't ruin the reading of the book for me. Characters wise I loved these two characters.
Rowan is the epitome of a strong-minded, strong-willed and strong-bodied heroine. She's the kind of character you can look at and say 'I want to be like her.
There was just something about Rowan that I really liked. Then there's Gull I loved Gull.
What a fantastic hero he was. He's such an intriguing mix of Alpha and Beta hero. He's Alpha because he's a fit, bad ass firefighter who can kick some ass in a fight. And he's a beta because he very intelligent, loves to read, spouts off random stuff from books, uses reason like a weapon, and makes spreadsheets to understand things. It was a fascinating mix. You read about him and shake you head wondering, who is this guy and where did he come from? The way he could talk Rowan down when she was in a mood was great.
There was nothing about him as a character I didn't like. These two together had great chemistry. What starts as scratching an itch during a stressful time grows and changes into more as the book progresses. Gull is like the perfect foil for Rowan's hot-headed temper. He knew how to handle all her moods. And Rowan, with her wariness of relationships and commitment, was perfectly suited to Gull's quirky personality and reasonable way of handling her.
They made a great pair and some of the dialogue between them was great. There's also some time spent on a secondary romance between Rowan's father, Lucas, and a woman named Ella.
It was sweet to read. I thought Rowan's reaction to the relationship was very natural and not unexpected. Maybe it was a little childish, but it was a very human reaction to a daughter seeing her father, a man who had never dated in her life since her mother ran off, suddenly falling in love. Now, on the suspense angle of the book I wouldn't say it is one of my favorite suspense plots from NR, but I liked it.
Early on, I thought the identity of the bad guy was going to be way to obvious, but I was dead wrong on that count. I had another suspense, but all through the book I was never really sure who the bad guy was going to be I lean one way or another, but I couldn't pinpoint it down till closer to the end.
From a technical standpoint, there's no neon blink sign toward the bad guy, but it isn't too hard to guess. I liked how the plot progressed, though. It takes a lot of twists and turns that have you trying to figure out how it all ties in together. And the resolution at the end is moderately intense and nicely written.
So all around, the suspense plot was good, if not great. My biggest complaint about the book would be that when the book ends, you don't know that outcome of what happened to a secondary character.
It's left hanging and that really pissed me off. I had being left wondering what happened. Characters and stuff stick with me, so I want to know. Add to that the lack of an epilogue It was good book, though. I definitely liked it a lot and it was worth the hardcover price. For you Nora fans, this book is very much in line with her other recent hardcovers Fans of contemporary romance.
This is another winner for Nora Roberts. I liked the plot well enough, loved the subplot, and loved the characters.
It was fun watching the heroine having to deal with her own feelings on her dad's falling in love. I didn't give it the highest rating because the suspense parts of the plot were a bit too obvious, to the point where I'd guessed the true villian and the motive in chapter three and was able to predict who would be the next victim of his machinations.
I also liked the descriptions of the pristine wilderness saved by these wildfire fighters, and those of the desolation left behind by a wilderness fire. These helped me understand the characters and their motivations better. The heroine, Rowan is an site, and for the first half of the book I couldn't identify with her because she seemed a bit too perfect.
As I got to know her insecurities better, that feeling faded. I was able to admire her and to root for her without feeling intimidated by her, which some might. She deserves everything with which she ends up. We'd all give anything to find a guy like Gulliver. What kind of a mother names her son Gulliver anyway? Turns out it was one in the entertainment business.
Gull's a regular kind of nice guy who turns out to have a lot of money but you'd never guess from his behavior.
Chasing Fire by Nora Roberts
He's sensitive, funny, educated, and has a vocabulary of some "ten dollar words" and literary allusions which his sidekick gets to tease him about. I hope the sidekick gets a book of his own; I liked Dobie a lot. Gull is smart enough to admire Rowan's strengths, and to form a separate relationship with her father, to go behind her back to protect her without mashing her self-esteem doing it.
He deserves Rowan. The suspense plot is a backdrop the book could have been just as good without. I did like it well enough, I guess, but it wasn't as strong as those in some of Roberts' earlier work, like that in Blue Smoke.
When a master paints something that is merely excellent, we get disappointed.
Our fault, not hers. Worth owning and re-reading in my humble opinion. Jun 30, Sahara Kelly rated it it was amazing. I know that every now and again it becomes "fashionable" to knock Nora Roberts' books. To say they're formulaic, routine or repetitive. And yes, occasionally those complaints hold some merit.
BUT - there is no getting around the fact that this lady works magic with words and characters. Are the plots predictable? Do I care? I don't care because Ms.

Roberts writes characters that consistently come alive for me, leaping brightly from her pages with humor, reality and the desire to take up residence in my brain.
Which they inevitably do. This story, Chasing Fire, is a classic example. Spunky heroine, handsome hero, threat hovering over them, all covered by the umbrella of this novel's backdrop - wildfires and the folks who fight them. As far as I can tell, Nora's research is spot on, although I've never been anywhere near a fire myself.
After reading this book, I feel I have. And I fought one alongside Gull and Rowan, getting dirty and exhausted while watching them fall headlong in love with each other. Like the song says, nobody does it better. This book whisked me off from my everyday routine and into the world of smoke jumping, physical fitness extraordinaire and people who go the extra mile for each other. It brought me into a place where passion burned every bit as hotly as the fires and where the frightening events unrolled naturally around Rowan, building a tense and taut plot which could only be resolved by a passage through fire!!
Seriously, my literary friends. Say what you will, but those of us who attempt to pen our own books can only stand and applaud this incredible lady. Her volume of work stands as testament to her ability to spin a tale. I'm hooked; I have "Witness" ready to roll, and look forward to more of the Boonsboro series.
Yeah, I'm a fan. But Nora's no one-trick pony seventies pop group. She's a long-standing, respected creator of literary magic. She's an example for us all and her talent shines brightly. Long may she continue to entertain readers like me. View 1 comment. But as part of the story they feel integral and important in ways that would be hard to pull off without a great deal of effort.
Anyway, I have little interest in fire jumpers and people who live that lifestyle are pretty far outside of my actual i. If you like any of these actiony elements, or suspect that you may, your enjoyment will likely be greater than my own. A note about Steamy: This was a middle of the road steamy level—a couple of explicit scenes and not too long or detailed at that.
Aug 19, Rosina Lippi rated it it was amazing Shelves: Edited to add: I listened to the audiobook version of this novel, and I should have said this: Good differentiation of one character from another, and no straining to sound male -- she just pulls it off. I've read a lot of Nora Roberts' novels -- with the exception of the fantasy and paranormal titles, which just are not my proverbial cup of tea. A lot of her books blend together for me, which means that they were less than compelling or memorable.
Not bad, mind you. Just n Edited to add: Just not exceptional in any way. This is, I think, my favorite of her books. I certainly admire Roberts' ability to make the perilous world of fire jumpers come into focus. A lot of research went into this, but and this is the hard part she never indulges the temptation to simply show off what she learned -- Roberts provides just enough detail to get a real sense of how physically and mentally challenging fire jumping is.
I got a good idea of the current technology and how it's used, and maybe most important, I began to understand the mindset and priorities that would drive an otherwise sensible and intelligent human being to jump out of a plane into a raging fire.
That aspect of the novel is so well done that I've talked the Mathematician into reading it, because I know he will like it enough to overlook the fact that there is a love story here.
Two of them, in fact. The primary romance is exceptionally good. Rowan, a veteran fire jumper, and Gulliver, a rookie. I find I can't resist the urge to use the totally predictable descriptive phrase: May 21, Renee rated it liked it Shelves: I also really liked Rowan and Gull, as well as all of the secondary characters.
However, I did have a couple of minor issues that prevented me from rating it higher. I listened to the digital audiobook, and between parts out of 13 parts the book started feeling really long. Rowan and Gull's relationship seemed to be in a holding pattern while they continued to work on the fire 3. Rowan and Gull's relationship seemed to be in a holding pattern while they continued to work on the fires, and all of the other secondary plot threads were being dealt with.
I wanted a little more focus on Rowan and Gull's relationship, I think. Also, I would have liked more about how they were going to work out their future, post fire-season. This seemed to be a big issue for Rowan at the beginning as to why she didn't get involved with fellow smoke jumpers. Gull's got a thriving family business in CA, while Rowan is firmly entrenched in Montana.
That part of it seemed to be too rushed at the end, and dealt with only superficially. I also found Rowan's initial attitude toward her father's romance really immature, which despite her extremely close relationship with her father, felt inconsistent with her character. However, all that being said, it was a good read, and I think if it had been a little shorter maybe if one of the plot threads had been smaller I would have loved it.
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.Scanningcenter shenzhen.
