WILDE FIRE (A Forever Wilde Novel)
Seth Walker was my first love and I always swore he’d be my last. Even after he moved away our senior year in high school, we vowed to reunite after graduation. But when he suddenly broke things off without explanation and crushed my heart, it was my turn to run.
After a decade in the navy, I’ve finally come home ready to move on with my life as Hobie’s newest firefighter. Unfortunately, the minute I set eyes on the new sheriff in town, I know I’m screwed. Hobie’s top cop is none other than Seth Walker.
Turns out, he’s come home too. And hell if he doesn’t have a lot of explaining to do.
I thought I was doing the right thing when I walked away from Otto Wilde ten years ago without an explanation. I was wrong. I also thought I could come back home without having to face my past mistakes. I was wrong about that too.
What I’m not wrong about: The fact that my heart catches fire every time I set eyes on the sexy man. The fact that I can’t imagine my life without him. The fact that things are still just as complicated now as they were then. And the fact that I have a lot of work ahead of me if I expect to win him back.
Just when things start heating up between us again, a serial arsonist strikes and suspicion falls close to home. I already lost Otto to a secret long ago but I’ll be damned if I let another threaten to send our future up in smoke.
Because Otto Wilde is mine, and I don’t plan on ever letting him go again.
Each novel in the Forever Wilde series can be read on its own or as part of the series. Fair warning, there will be nekkid man parts touching, meddling patriarchs, sweet second-chance love themes, and a dearly departed donkey named Debbie Gibson.
Fans of this author and the Made Marion series know what to expect and anticipation has been building for this third in the Wilde series. As in the Marian series we have a large family, lots of love, somewhat crazy experiences and some hot guys with the family led by grandfathers Doc and Grandpa (Weston) – channel Aunt Tilly!
The prologue brings a taste of the wonderfully exciting trip ahead. “That’s a mighty fine cock you got there, boy.” “Round these parts, we call them roosters, shithead”… but best friends and much more since childhood Otto and Walker were not really talking about the Rooster and hidden clouds were rolling in.
Walker’s family moved away just before the senior year and neither boy could imagine the days ahead, a future without the other. The plan was always to go to college together until a tragic event and Walker’s world shifted on its axis again. It wouldn’t be fair to expect Otto to wait, with all of the responsibility on Walker’s shoulders and Walker, with any explanation, told Otto that he needed to move on. There was no way Otto could stay there without Walker so he joined the NAVY.
These guys, each in their own way, still planning to be with the other, someday. Maybe. But many tears would be shed, interspersed with pockets of joy and, interludes of passion. This was a powerful story of first love and what they believed would be last love. Otto would do anything, absolutely anything for Walker and the time would come for one more test. Does Walker feel the same?
I love the Wilde family and their enviable relationships. They are ever-present, really present for each other. This is one of my top 5 authors of any genre and each new release brings sunshine, warmth the satisfying, enviable relationship we can anticipate, although it is never a sure thing.
