SANTA TO THE RESCUE by Adele Downs

Coming Monday, November 11, 2013 from Entangled Publishing

Summary:

Firefighter Jamey Tucker knows three things in life to be true: an honorable man doesn’t go back on his word; never hurts a woman; and lasting love isn’t a myth. But with his recent move to a new job at Appleton Fire Station, the long hours don’t offer hope of finding the love he’s looking for.

 When Jamey meets beautiful pediatric nurse Heather Longhurst after hearing her sing “Santa Baby” in a supermarket aisle, he offers her a promise he discovers he can’t keep. Heather has been betrayed by men in the past, making it hard for Jamey to gain her trust. Determined to find a way to win her heart, Jamey uses firefighter engine-uity and Heather’s favorite song to prove he’s got Christmas spirit she can believe in all year.

Excerpt:

Jamey Tucker unfastened his helmet, lifted his facemask and tugged off his fire retardant gloves before gulping half a liter of water. He could almost hear the liquid sizzle against his throat, much like the smoldering embers behind him turned to sodden ash.

He held out the cup to the volunteer rescue worker manning the drinking water. “More.” That simple word was as much as he could manage. After chugging down a refill, moisture returned to his mouth and tongue. He licked his lips and released a satisfied sigh. All he needed was a hot shower and some chow to feel human again. “Thanks, man.”

“No problem. Merry Christmas, Jamey.” The last thing on his mind was Christmas.

“Yeah. You too.” He stunk like a chimney after fighting a fire ‘till dawn. Dumb kids and their vacant warehouse rave had caused their team hours of grief and gut wrenching work. Luckily, no one died.

Though the crew decorated the firehouse with lights and garland, and set up the tree a week ago, Christmas spirit had failed to find him. Loneliness could do that to the new guy in town, not that he’d admit that to anyone. He’d cut his heart out first.
