Hot, sexy, and just like the title says its a wildfire! Almost from the very beginning this book was steaming with sexual tension. Amanda's ankle is trapped by a log in a riverbed and there is nobody to help her but the obnoxious brat Roger that she is escorting through the wilderness. He runs off and finds Jacob the oh so sexy halfbreed and from then on the sexual tension spreads like a Montana Wildfire!

After he gets her foot unstuck they find out that Roger has been kidnapped and Jacob agrees

Montana Wildfire is a little slow to start off, but don't give up or you will be missing out on a great read. Jake and Amanda have serious chemistry right from the get go, but they spend most of the book dancing around each other. You can almost cut the air with the tension these two generate. I loved Amanda's spunk and stubborn streak, although it gets her into a bit of trouble. She's not afraid to stand up for herself and has a tendency to speak before she thinks. Jake is majorly swoon worthy. ...more

She needed his help, but he wanted her surrender.

Upon accepting a job to escort a young boy to his father's house, Amanda Lennox could never have expected quite how life changing that decision would be. She knew it was the opportunity she needed to get back to what's left of her own home, but first she would be tried and tested by her mischievous and devious young charge and then again and again by a gorgeous-to-distraction half-breed. But when the boy she promised to deliver is suddenly kidnap

Amanda Lennox needed a job, she had inherited some property in Seattle, when her father died, but she needs to get there from Boston. Amanda answers an add in the paper for a job that will not only make her some money but get her all the way to Montana as well. How hard could it be to watch one ten year old little boy and escort him from Boston to Pony, Montana? She hadn't counted on the little boy being the brat that Roger Thornton Bannister III turned out to be.

This was a real bodice-ripping (quite literally) page-sizzler!

Amanda Lennox's job is to accompany a precocious little brat from Boston to Pony in Montana to reunite him with his wealthy father. Her wilderness expertise is somewhat questionable and she manages to find herself not only way off route in Idaho, but also in dire need of assistance when she gets stuck in a freezing cold stream-bed. Her unruly charge manages to find help in the form of Jake Chandler, a half-white, half-Indian (Injun),

Amanda Lennox, blond, green eyed and intelligent, at least she thought she was intelligent until she lied to get this job of bringing Roger Thornton Bannister III home. The little monster was making the already rough trip through the western countryside unbearable. Amanda has always prided herself on her even temper but now, stuck in the river, with the spoiled Roger splashing her and demanding lunch, Amanda is ready to blow. Even Roger realizes that perhaps he's pushed her too far and goes rush ...more
Amanda Lennox is stuck with her foot in a tree trunk in a river. This is how we are introduced to her and that should tell you a lot about her. In her attempt to get the little monster Roger Bannister III from Virginia City, MT to Pony, MT (less that a days ride on horse) she somehow got them lost for 2 weeks in the wilderness and they are now in Idaho. She has the worst sense of direction and dubious survival skills. To Jake Blackhawk Chandler she seems just like another spoiled white woman but ...more

I loved this book. The story was captivating and I didn't want to put it down. I enjoyed how all the characters evolved during the story. The passion was red hot and oh so steamy! It's a definite read for anyone!

This book had promise, it let me down in a few ways the worst being how jake changed his hair, shoes etc to appear less Native American to please Amanda at the end. Seriously wtf is that about. The inordinate amount of air time to jakes discomfort with his own racial identity and his issues with white people was, in my opinion was in my mind unnecessary to focus on it in that degree, I don't think it added to the story in fact I thought the way it was presented was a tad unrealistic. If it had b ...more

An emotional journey where two very different people find love.

Little did she know that not only was the young boy an absolute hellion but they got lost for weeks. After getting herself stuck in a freezing river she is forced to send the boy to get help. He returns a bit later with an arrogant halfbreed with a serious chip on his shoulder. Jacob

Fire never burned so hot. When Amanda Lennox gets lost in the woods with her charge, Roger who is a spoiled brat, Jake is her only hope. The boy is kidnapped and Jake agrees to help Amanda find him. The following adventure is filled with searing romance and painful separations. One of my favorite moments was when Jake teaches Amanda how to build a fire by comparing it to love-making.

This novel reads very much like California Caress, also by Rebecca Sinclair. If you enjoyed that book, you are sur

“Yes, I must be,” Amanda said in a tone that would have done any tea social justice-calm, cool, collected…savage. “I’m crazy to have taken a job where my employer was a prejudiced bastard like yourself. Lord knows what I was thinking.” Jake grinned. He knew damn well what he was thinking: that his prissy little white princess had lost her cotton pickin’ mind! He didn’t say that, though. He couldn’t. For the first time in his life, a woman had left him speechless. He found his voice fast enough w ...more
Lots of tension between the two main characters, was really nicely executed. Some of the language got to be a bit repetitive, but that's my only really big complaint with this book. Full review to come soon. *Please note I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.*

I just remember little snippets of this book but the one thing that always stayed with me is that the heroine told the hero he wasn't man enough for her or something like that.
