Evan Donovan is a big muscled giant of a man, whose size and strength make him uniquely qualified to be a smoke jumper. No matter how great or how treacherous the challenge, he gets the job done.

Evan is determined to keep Faye safe. But if he expects her to trust him with her life, he’ll have to open up his heart—even if someone gets burned…

Slow Burn is the 2013 Contemporary Reader/Writer Women’s Fiction Winner for Affaire de Coeur’s Reader/Writer Poll.

Four stars from Romantic Times!

“Marsh’s second Smoke Jumpers novel sizzles with heady sensuality, and will delight both fans and newcomers. Her insight into each character, hero and villain alike, brings the story to vivid life, and the unquenchable heat between her two leads is utterly irresistible.”– RT Book Reviews, 4 stars

Publisher’s Weekly writes:

Marsh sizzles with her second outing (after Burning Up) to the small mountain town of Strong, Calif., home of some of the state’s hunkiest firefighters. Newly divorced freelance photographer Faye Duncan lands an assignment to shoot firefighters for an upcoming magazine story. She packs up her new red Corvette—which she bought as consolation for herself after finding her husband in another woman’s arms—and hits the road. What she doesn’t expect is to fall in love with her ex-husband’s Marine Corps buddy, Evan Donovan, who runs a smoke-jumping operation with his brothers, Jack (hero of the first in the series) and Rio. Someone is setting fires in Strong, and all signs point to that person being a firefighter. Faye and Evan race to discover the arsonist’s identity before someone is hurt or killed. Mixed in with the compelling drama are smoking-hot love scenes between lovably flawed characters.
