Lone Pine Lake’s resident playboy, fire captain Christian Nelson, is loving his single-guy lifestyle until the quiet, mysterious Jane Clark comes for a tour of the firehouse with her three small children. Chris is immediately drawn to the beautiful woman—even though he’s been burned by commitment in the past.

Having lived through a devastating house fire years ago, Jane’s hesitant when her brother’s best friend, Christian, offers to help quell her family’s residual fears. But despite her brother’s warnings about his friend’s playboy status and dangerous occupation, Jane’s heart has other plans.
