Falling By Firelight:
The Sky Fletcher Series
“What’s most important now is that we, as a nation, keep our heads. Please, do not panic.”
Sky Fletcher had everything going for her: an esteemed position at The Daily News, the perfect New York apartment, and a brilliant boyfriend just weeks away from popping the question. In a single afternoon, the veneer of her relationship is ripped away as the nation dissolves into a frenzy. A supervolcano in the Western US is set to blow. Suddenly single, Sky makes the cross-country trek to report from the research base that monitors the volcanic mountain.
Dr. Marcos Vega, a celebrated volcanologist, leads the unit. From his sprawling tattoos to his intimidating build, he’s nothing that Sky expected to find in the team’s lead scientist. Distant, cold, unreadable. He’s no one she’d want to get mixed up in...on paper. If only he weren’t so mysterious, so distracting, so quick to make the hairs on the nape of her neck stand on end. On the biggest assignment of her career thus far, Sky’s determination to keep things professional threatens to crumble at Marcos’s rough fingertips.
Nothing spurs romance like the possible end of the world.
With the threat of volcanic eruption behind them, Sky Fletcher and Dr. Marcos Vega couldn’t be happier. Together they travel to Hawaii, where Marcos’s newfound geological celebrity has earned him a teaching residency. With his intimidating, rugged good looks and sweeping tattoos, he causes a stir at the Institute that reaches far beyond the intellectual. What starts out as a romantic getaway quickly devolves as Marcos works longer hours and Sky finds herself alone, left to wander the island.
Sky soon meets Bane, a Hawaiian born and bred surfer. Where she is tightly wound and focused, Bane is loose, relaxed, fun. Sky finds herself drawn to the younger man, whose natural openness is almost as intriguing as his tanned, chiseled frame and lopsided grin.
Relationships are tested, boundaries strain, and Sky finds herself in uncharted waters, both off the coast and in her heart.
Sky Fletcher is embarking on a new life chapter. She's shedding toxic relationships, breaking ground on a new career, has a sexy younger man in her life, and...has no earthly idea what's next.
On the heels of her successful film debut, Sky finds herself back in New York City. What might have been a peaceful respite, or at least a return to normalcy, quickly devolves into chaos. Her boss pressures her to move on to bigger and better things, but who knows what those things are. Sky finds herself falling for Bane, the hulking Hawaiian surfer. Her feelings bowl her over, surging beyond the thick lust that first attracted her to the younger man. But it feels like it’s all happening far too fast. And nothing is made simpler by the return of Dr. Marcos Vega, or his heartfelt request to remain a part of her life.
Love goes triangular. Reason goes out the window. And for Sky, a woman who has always known and taken exactly what she wants, the lines are getting blurry. How can you know what you want, much less what you need, when everything is thrown into chaos?
