-Foreword Magazine

Once a major in the US Marines, Dan Stagg fell foul of Don't Ask, Don't Tell and is now struggling to make sense of civilian life. In his late 30s, tall and muscilar, Dan works as a bouncer at an East Village nightclub. When he's offered a fortune to protect the young male secretary of a powerful real estate developer, Dan takes off on a road trip with a hot blond companion who makes it clear that "protection" doesn't stop at the bedroom door. But Dan soon realizes he's being used as a shield for a much more sinister operation and has to choose between easy money and the ideals that he once fought for.

Rugged firefighters are the number one romantic fantasy-they enter fiery structures with selfless courage and are the very definition of the word "hero." Women understand their allure-soot-covered faces, sweat dripping from hard, chiseled muscles, the sharp snap of suspenders. Delilah Devlin's burning-hot book teems with gorgeous firemen and stories from some of today's hottest romance writers. In "Saving Charlotte," Sabrina York's firefighting Dom rescues a woman tied to a red-hot bed; a fire chief fulfills some very steamy fantasies in Cathryn Fox's "Temperature Rising." Elle James's "Chasing Fire" follows a daring smoke-jumper as he parachutes into the hot zone of a forest fire, then sets his girlfriend ablaze with erotic heat; and Magic Mike ain't got nothin' on Delilah's own fireman-turned-exotic-dancer-for-a-night in "Johnny Blaze." Along with a list of award-winning authors that includes Ily Goyanes, Shoshanna Evers, Adele Dubois and Rachel Firasek, Delilah delivers tales of these courageous men breaking down doors to steal readers' hearts! Smokin' Hot Firemen imagines the romantic possibilities of being held against a massively muscled chest by a man whose mission is to save lives and serve every need.
