Stand-alone Hope Falls romance, complete with HEA--and plenty of heat and heart along the way!
Their future was set. He was going to be a firefighter, and she was going to be a filmmaker. They were going to get married and live happily-ever-after with two kids and a dog…She supposed one out five ain’t bad.

Mackenzie Sutton was an award-winning documentary filmmaker who had put her past where it belonged, behind her.  But when her old flame’s hometown becomes the setting for her new project, she’s forced to remember what she wanted with all her heart but never got to have.

Eli Bishop achieved his goal and became a firefighter. And although the sexy hero risks his life daily, in reality, he has nothing to lose since he lost her all those years ago.

With fate giving them a second chance, both Mackenzie and Eli will be forced to relive the past if there is any hope of them having a future in…Fire and Love.

    He was forced to walk away from the future they had promised each other, but he never stopped loving her. Now she's walking into his life again temporarily, and he's not sure how he's going to be able to stand to be in such close proximity of her again ... when she's not his anymore. Loved the trip back to Hope Falls! A solid reunited love story building from several characters we've met in previous books in the series. Firefighter Eli Bishop can't believe his luck. He started his life over in a town away from home, and now the past that he's never forgotten is showing up to dig up old memories and feelings again. What are the odds that Kenzie would show up in Hope Falls? Mackenzie Sutton became the documentary filmmaker that she always dreamed of being, but it's led her to confront a past that she wasn't ready to face. She never knew why Eli broke her heart all those years ago ... but being face to face with him again brings back that loving feeling!
  • Another Hope Falls Couple Falls in Love

    By Eileen A-W
    OH MY!! Words escape me in trying to describe how much I loved reading Fire and Love by the amazing duo Melanie Shawn, the thirteenth book in their Hope Fall series. This is a second chance story for Eli Bishop and Mackenzie Sutton who were best friends and neighbors since the age of ten. The commitment and love they made to each other after high school graduation were sidelined by the small mindedness of one individual but now there’s nothing to stop these two from burning up the sheets twelve years later when they have a chance to reconnect. Hopefully when Kenzie learns the truth of why Eli was a no show, she can believe in his honesty. Through their amazing and vivid writing Melanie Shawn did an outstanding job tackling this love at first sight story. I genuinely enjoyed reading Fire and Love and was pleased with the way Melanie Shawn found a way for Kenzie and Eli to find their way to a happy forever. Although this book is part of a series, it can also be read as a stand-alone. I highly recommend this book and am looking forward to reading the next story in the Hope Falls series. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
  • Sweetly sexy second chance romance!

    By Cali Jewel
    Sweetly sexy, emotionally engaging and fun filled small town second chance romance and highly entertaining and relaxing quick visit to Hope Falls. Mackenzie Sutton an award winning filmmaker, sweet, sassy and back in her home town to film her latest project comes face to face with a past she thought she had been over. Eli Bishop is a hot, sexy hometown boy and firefighter with nothing to loose since he lost Mackenzie all those years ago. This is a short but awesome summer time relaxing in the backyard lounging in the sun with a cold drink reading.
  • A slow burn that will keep you hooked to the very last word!

    Mackenzie and Eli’s story is so heartwarming it will make you feel warm and fuzzy all over. I’m so happy that Melanie and Shawna are back in Hope Falls. This is such an amazing series and I love that we get to a small glimpse into how the characters from past books are doing! Eli is a standup guy who has always done the right thing his whole life even if it cost him the most precious thing he ever had. Mackenzie feels like she has life on lock, she has her dream job, a life in the big city, and a best friend she can always count on so returning to her home town should be no problem. Eli and Mackenzie heat up the page from the first time their eyes lock. I loved watching them rediscover the relationship that was taken away from them when they were younger. These two have to overcome a few hurdles to find their happy ending but when they do it’s so sweet you will be wishing there were more than a few pages left.
  • A fantastic must read!!!

    Loved, loved, loved this book!!! Kenzie tried to deny there was still a spark between her and Eli, but couldn't resist. I felt bad that they had been through such a tough past, and they both seemed to be fighting demons. Deanna had me cracking up throughout the story, and one of the fire calls may have given me a little anxiety. There was one certain character I would've loved to seen put in their place. Maybe disowned and outed. The perfect addition to the Hope Falls series, and one I would definitely recommend!!!
  • Perfect!!!

    Melanie Shawn never fails me. NEVER FAILS ME! They always deliver a sexy, sweet, perfect story every single time. And every time we go back to Hope Falls it's like we never left. We get welcomed back into the town by it's people with their arms wide open! I love a great second chance romance and that's exactly what Eli and Mackenzie's story was. After a secret romance and a terrible reason to be torn apart, years separate them. And no matter how hard Mackenzie tried to move on....she never was able to forget the love of her life. Eli left because he had to. He had no other choice. There would never be another woman for him. And once he has her back in his life, he's never letting her go. This story is full of so much love, heart, sexiness, friendship, perfection, laugh out loud moments, swooning, and wonderfulness.....your heart will be near bursting! You want to read this immediately!!! Loved every second!!! <3 Happy reading!
