I lost my job, lost my fiancé, and started a bar fight. That’s how I met Donovan Ryan. Don’t worry. I gave another guy a bloody nose, not Donovan.

Donovan is way too handsome for my own good, certainly for my peace of mind. He’s also one of those save-the-day hotshot firefighters. You know the type. Strong, protective, dangerously hot.

Now isn’t the time for me to fall for anyone. I won’t. I definitely won’t.


Jasmine Phillips has a solid right hook. She’s also crazy beautiful with a fiery temper. I can think of quite a few things I might enjoy about fiery.

But Jasmine’s off limits, and I don’t do love. Then, she kisses me and sets me on fire. There’s lust, there’s love, and then there’s this.

Jasmine makes me question everything. She makes me want to move mountains. I would—for her. Only her.

*This is a full-length, standalone romance with a guaranteed HEA.

    Another great story in the Into the Fire series. Heartbroken Jasmine heads home to recover. Enter Donavan the hunky firefighter and didn’t the sparks fly. Their connection is instant and their chemistry is hot. Emotional and heart warming story with a great ending. Worth the read. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC.

    A wonderfully written hot shot firefighter and a sassy pottery maker. Both characters were betrayed by someone they loved. The story takes place in Willow Brook, Alaska. Donovan and Jasmine have set your soul on fire chemistry that scorches the pages. J.H. Croix pulls us in from the first page to the very last and gives us an amazing storyline and fantastic characters. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
  • I love everything about this series!

    By Klebeau1
    One of the best series I’ve had the pleasure to read! I loved Donovan and Jasmine from the very beginning. Jasmine is running from a cheating ex and returns home to Alaska. A quick stop at Wildlands bar is just what she needs. She’s Fiery, beautiful, sexy and just because she’s in a bar playing pool she isn’t gonna let a man put his hands all over her. Jasmine punches the man. Donavan comes to her rescue. Donavan is drawn to Jasmine the minute he sees her across the bar. He feels a connection. One hot steamy kiss later Donovan finds out Jasmine is his best friends sister. He knows he should stay away. The last relationship he was in left him with heartache. But when He and Jasmine end up living across the hall from each other all bets are off and the sex is just WOW! Their chemistry is electric. They’re falling in love but both are to afraid to admit it. When Donavan disappears for a few days without an explanation Jasmine begins to wonder if her and Donavan could ever be more than just sex. Can they put their pasts behind them? I just LOVE going back to Willow Brooke Alaska. You never know what you’re gonna find.
  • Jasmine and Donavan

    By Nettie1114
    Play With Fire in by J H Croix is a beautifully written story of the hot shot series set in Alaska. Jasmine ran back home to Alaska to family after she caught her fiancé with another woman. Donavan a hot shot also has emotional baggage as well. They met by Donavan protecting Jasmine in a bar fight. They are instantly attracted to each other then Donovan finds out she is the sister of another hotshot and she is an emotional wreck. I throughly enjoyed reading Into the Fire the characters are well developed and like able. There is also sizzle and emotional topics are explored in the story. Jasmine and Donavan story is one of my favorite in the hot shot series and I highly recommending reading it. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
  • Hot times

    Jasmine is: Fiesty, fiery, impulsive, pretty bada$$, knows how to throw a punch and takes no prisoners. Has a brother names Levi, a firefighter. Donovan is: laid back, not an ahole, a good man, likes Jasmine something fierce, works with Jasmine's brother Levi at the station. They meet in a bar, after Jasmine is playing pool and another dude grabs her bu++. She clocks him good but the bartender has Donovan drive her to Levi's. The fun begins, hot times, impulsive actions, more hot times and of course, Donovan works with Levi. Verdict: Recommend. Cuz its hot. I voluntarily reviewed this book.
