Fan the Flames
He's a firefighter.
He's a Motorcycle Club member.
And if a killer has his way...he'll take the fall for a murder he didn't commit.
Ian Walsh is used to riding the line between the good guys and the bad. He may owe the club his life, but his heart rests with his fire station brothers...and with the girl he's loved since they were kids. Ian would do anything for Rory. He'd die...more
More lists with this book...
I can't bring myself to DNF this book because it is wonderfully written and the suspense part is super intriguing. Unfortunately for my personal tastes it's too heavy on the suspense and too light on the romance. I struggled to feel a connection between the hero and heroine until well past 50% and even then it never quite clicked for me. I think I just need to be in the right sort of mood for something like this so I hope to get back to it later.

Rory has been crushing on Ian for some time, but her social ineptness has made her miss clues that Ian’s been lusting after her, as well. Being raised by survival extremist parents (who are now dead) only prepared he ...more
Rory was the bomb! It is that simple. She was raised by extreme survivalists, saying they were preppers would be an understatement. And she even owns a gun shop. She might be socially awkward but the girl definitely knows her way around a gun…legal and the ones not so legal. Which leads her into some of the trouble that comes to find her.
Ian is a badass. Again, it’s that simple. By day, he is takes on fires, as of course a ...more
Okay, truth, I loved Rory, it is so hard to believe that one young woman could have lived life so sheltered as the only child of two over-the-top survivalists, know a weapon forwards and back, and be the go-to girl for firearms! Her social in ...more
Oh good lordy...that cover! Yowza!
Sadly, this was a very boring/blah read for me.
It has actually taken me quite a while to write this review as I was really torn on what to say. I have asked myself was it the book or was it me. Did I build my expectations up too high? I like Ms. Ruggle's concept of the series arc, the setting of these stories and for the most part the characters. I really liked book 1, but for me, book 2 did not live up to the level of Book 1 and I was d ...more
The romance was more front line than the previous book and I think that's why I enjoyed it so much more. Ian and Rory were the sweetest couple and they got plenty of page time together. I loved that they had this long friendship first that grew into love and watching the other firefighters accept Rory into their family was heartwarming. The villain in this piece was ...more
I haven't read the first book, but wasn't lost. There a lots of hints and details to know what happened, but make you want to go read it (I mean a headless dead guy at the bottom of a river..how, why).
Ian/Beauty was a smokin', hot fire fighter and MC member, and had been in like/lust/love with Rory since they were 12 years old. Rory grew up with doomsday prep-ing parents who had her doing zombie drills. Ian was great with Rory who never had friends, never went to school, h ...more

3.5 Stars. This has been a pretty nice series so far. I can't believe this is only Ruggles third book; she's writing like a seasoned pro. The base of the series is the Search and Rescue teams located in the Rocky mountains of Colorado, in and around the town of Simpson.
This time around we have Ian, who is part of the local biker gang, but also a fireman. ...more
The first book's introduction to the series arc, setting, backdrop, and the main body of characters shouldn't be skipped even though a new couple has the lime light in ...more
I can’t even say I disliked the heroine. I didn’t. I didn’t like her, I didn’t dislike her, I felt nothing. And that’s the worse feeling of all. While Lou and her story were interesting, lively, funny, sexy, a little chaotic and funky, and gave the reader a glimpse (albeit not a full one, since the story was told from the heroine’s third-person POV) into the hero ...more
On to the next!
This was a really good story. I liked Ian in previous stories so I was happy to see his book come up. It was enjoyable while being interesting and engaging.
Rory is an unusual woman. She was born to parents that were disillusioned with the world and became preppers, getting ready for the time when society goes to hell. Rory lost her parents 3 years ago and she took over the family's gun shop. Unfortunately, after being home schooled and conditioned since childhood to keep to herself, R ...more
FAN THE FLAMES continues from where Hold Your Breath ends and improves on the drama, suspense and action but also throws in a good dose of humor to lighten the tension. The interactions between Ian and Rory left me in stitches but I like that Ms. Ruggle gave us characters ...more
Rory Sorenson runs her parents' old gun shop with a bit of a black market side business. She's basically a hermit, socially awkward, introverted, and a self proclaimed freak. She grew up with paranoid parents and their beliefs shaped her life. She's recently made some enemies and they've been coming after her and her inv ...more
I had a hard time buying Ian as both a firefighter and a member of a criminal motorcycle club. They were an odd fit. To Ruggle's credit, she doesn't gloss over the difficulties he has in fitting in with both groups and the grie ...more
As Rory was so prickly Ian had to be a bit pushy, but he w ...more

What’s it About? Firefighter Ian Walsh came from a tough background, a Motorcycle Club known for its criminal activity, and while Ian’s left that life behind to dedicate himself to firefighting, he feels he owes the Club that he still considers family. Meanwhile hi ...more
This is the second book in the Search & Rescue series. This time, we are following Ian (who we met in book one). He’s a firefighter. He’s also a member of the local motorcycle club. There are many that feel that he’s very dangerous because of his affiliation with the club. He grew up in the club. He considers them family, even if he doesn’t agree with everything.

I love Rory. I thought she was excellent. She was tough and smart and vulnerable. I loved how anxious she was about social interactions, but she pushed through and found a family of sorts anyway. If the book had just been about her I would have loved it. I loved her backstory with survivalist parents, and the way ...more
