From Publishers Weekly

Jul 06, 2015 – The first McGuire Brothers contemporary boasts suspense that burns as hot as the love scenes. It's been 15 years since Jordan McKenna left Old Brookfield, N.Y., right after high school graduation. Gavin McGuire, who's now the town's fire chief, was dating her then and still isn't over her. From his perspective, she just disappeared; he has no idea that Jordan ran off to New York City to become an actress and escape her abusive father. Unable to find success, she married a wealthy man who turned out to be another abuser. Hoping to save her daughters, she leaves him and brings the girls back to Old Brookfield. As soon as Gavin sees Jordan, he rushes to propose that they restart their relationship a move quite at odds with his otherwise sensible attitude and she calmly declines, determined to show her girls she's able to stand on her own. But when an arsonist strikes the town, Jordan and Gavin end up working together to find the culprit while fanning their own embers of attraction into passion. This crafty romance, with its spirited characters, will leave readers anticipating the sequel.

Customer Reviews


Gavin has not been pining for Jordan this whole time. Or has he? When she returns to their hometown, he finds he has never stopped loving her.

Jordan has had so much happen to her in life. Now, she must protect her children from harm. Going home is all she knows to do. Only home is where a fire bug is getting more excited.

Great start to the McGuire Brothers series. There is a ton going on, great humor, and a sincere love story woven through it all. I cannot wait to read the rest of the series!

A SEcond Chance Romance, Loved it!!

A second chance love story between Jordan, a divorced mother of the cutest two little girls and Gavin McGuire, Fire Chief of Old Brookfield. Jordan returns home, after being away for fifteen years to start a new life for her and her daughters. Gavin was Jordan's first love that ended with a misunderstanding. Can Jordan and Gavin just remain friends or will it lead it to more, even though there is a strong sexual chemistry between them. Add in the element of an arsonist, setting fires in the town, makes for this book to be a page turner.

A great cast of characters. Loved Gavin, so strong and feels responsible for so much. Always the big brother. Jordan, had a terrible childhood from her father and them marries an abusive man, now she wants so much for her daughters. Gavin's parents are such a hoot, so happy to see a happy couple still so much in love after forty years. I can't wait to read more of the McGuire brother's stories.

This is my first Sara Humphrey book, and I've waited for it since last spring. It was well worth the wait. I highly recommend this book!
