He's a man of few words...

Troy Horvath doesn't need much outta life. His fellow firefighters, a good beer, and...well, one date with the most gorgeous woman in town couldn't hurt, right?

Penny is beautiful, sassy, and everything he doesn't need.

But she's exactly who he wants.

He knows from the get-go she isn't planning on staying in Sawyer. She just isn't a small-town girl.

Troy Horvath was known for being quiet which suited him fine, except that his aunt took it as proof that the world would pass him by. To Troy, it seemed that most women had to talk incessantly about feelings and anything else on their minds, and anyone who preferred to be more private had something wrong with them. Sparky was the only female Troy knew who didnt require constant talking but dogs are like that. Petting and feeding met her needs for a happy life and a lifelong bond. As for Troy, ...more

You will fall in love with Troy and Penny, and Sparky the dog!!

Troy is the quiet, behind the scenes hunky firefighter of Long Valley, who adopts the abused dog earlier. I am so glad that we get to have Troy's story because he is such a sweet, strong man who gets overlooked. Opposites attract in this case because chatty, outgoing Penny, who is doing a newspaper article in the volunteer fire department, instantly feels a pull towards Troy. But they are opposites in other ways too and Penny wants

I received a complimentary copy of this book from NetGalley and I also purchased a copy.

This book had me a little conflicted. I adored Troy but Penny left something to be desired though. I thought at times she was pushy, self-absorbed, controlling and self-centered. But being in my 50's may have something to do with it. I couldn't understand why she would want to feign having a stomachache when Troy took her on a date to Copperton. She suggested all the other dates and was trying to get out of

Oh where to begin? Let's see, I was half crushing on Troy back when Sparky made him her new bestie, so I knew I was going to love his story. I was not wrong! I have read everything Erin Wright has written, so it was awesome to hear from so many characters that we've met along the way. All the way from the beginning of Accounting for Love. If you haven't read anything yet, you really should. Each book is better when you know all of the characters. I stayed up till 3 am reading because I couldn't ...more

What can I say about this book, I absolutely loved it. It had everything a great book should have. There was love, loss, humor, drama, danger, and understanding. I couldn't put this book down.

I loved the character of Troy. I have known my husbands best friend since high school and he stutters. He is an amazing man and I have watched time and time again as woman have turned him down simply because of it. Reading about Troy and the struggles he has gone through and what he has accepted in life

I must say that this story is quite good and flows really well which makes it a most enjoyable read. What i like most about the book is the hero. There is so much to troy then the quick glimpses you get of him in the other books in the series. This book makes you fall in love with him for all they right reasons and not just the typical romance novel reasons. The heroine is sassy and quick but a little self-centered. Happily she is also very likeable and you come to realize more misguided than ...more

Troy has always been quiet and no one has really seen him. Only his family knows the real reason why he doesn't talk much.
Penny is a reporter who is hell bent on eventually leaving Long Valley for a better job in graphic art in a big city somewhere just as soon as it is safe to leave her mom alone.
When she walks into the fire department to do an interview, sparks fly between her and Troy. She spends most of the time talking with him

This is a story to tug at ones heart, one that makes you realise that there are people in this world who hide in the shadows, that are indeed wonderful human beings. Troy is one of those people, despite his insecurities. His family knows why he doesnt have much to say and his friends accept him as he is without question, but Penny is too inquisitive to keep her curiosity to herself. The bubbly newspaper reporter and the taciturn fire fighter make an unlikely pair, and yet they are perfect for ...more

Oh how much can I take!! This work of art is so great!! Erin has gone above the stars on this one!! The quiet one, the old fire chiefs nephew, Sparkys BFF, Troy! How hot is he!!! And for Penny to zone in on him while she was there at the fire house!!! And to bring him his very own copy of the article. That when the quiet reserved Troy Horvath opens his mouth and asks for a date! WHAT THE WHAT??? Hold the presses!! So the sparks really start to fly when she finds out why she does all the talking! ...more

Troy works in the grain windmill that belongs to his uncle and at the same time he is also a volunteer firefighter.
Penny works as a journalist for the local newspaper. All she wants is to get away from Franklin but because of her mothers illness, she cant.
There are a lot of things going on in Troys mind. He is a quiet person, what makes him a good listener.
The book is well-written and the characters are well-developed. The scene during the rescue from the fire is fantastic and very emotional.

I felt bad that Troy didnt speak much because he had a stutter and didnt want people to know. So everyone just accepted that he was quiet. Well, everyone except Penny. It was great to see how outgoing Penny was, and how she didnt give up until she found out why Troy didnt say much. She is such a wonderful person, and the stutter was no big deal and she let Troy know. I admired her to come back home to take care of her mother when she had cancer even though her mother insisted she didnt need ...more

When Troy sees her he is speechless and floored the only woman he truly likes is his new dog Sparky.

Burned by Love is the fourth novel in the Firefighters of Long Valley series and, although Ive enjoyed ALL of the stories in this series, this one is especially touching!

As with all of the characters in this series, Troy and Penny have real-life issues...the kind many readers can identify with. With the depth of character development that Erin Wright gives her characters, they jump off the page as if youre visiting with old friends. Friends that you are drawn to and want to hear their stories.

Wonderful, beautiful story

This is my favorite in the Long Valley series. I laughed and I cried and couldn't put it down! This was a tender story of imperfect people who find each other. Both have other ideas about their lives before meeting. But once they meet? Their lives seem destined to be together. He works at a grain milk. Shes a graphic artist. Shes bubbly and social, Hes quiet and introverted. Poor Troy. He has stuttered all his life. Never thought he was the relationship type till he

It's always the quiet ones you have to watch out for. Troy is no exception. He stole my heart. When his "secret" was revealed, I felt my heart breaking for him. Then there was Penny. While she may have been what/who Troy needed, sometimes I wanted to shake her and say "just open your eyes and truly see what you have". That's how I know this was a wonderful story because I truly "connected" with the characters.

This is the fourth book in the Firefighters of Long Valley series but can be read as a standalone. You'll love the story of Penny and Troy which is set in rural Idaho. They're opposites in so many ways and have different dreams, but their chemistry is explosive. They're drawn to each other. Are they able to combine their dreams and continue their relationship? Lots of hometown charm and likable characters. An entertaining and well-written story that was a pleasure to read. I read an advance ...more

Troy is the strong, silent type whilst Penny is outgoing and talks non-stop. Burned by Love is their story and it is absolutely wonderful. Although this is part of the Fire fighters of Long Valley books it is also a perfect stand-alone. Erin Wright has a talent for creating genuine characters that are both interesting and likeable. I loved this book and have no hesitation in giving it five stars. I definitely recommend it.

Troy is a volunteer firefighter that has a few challenges in his life.

Penny is the gorgeous reporter who is attracted to Troy. But he goes from hot to cold on her and freezes her out.

I adored Troy. Hes the silent one, always aware but not a chatter. But he does ask Penny out. And does pretty heroic things like saving people from fire.
Recommend.

Secrets, will the chance at love make Troy give his up?

I love Erin's storytelling, she brings these characters and this small community to technicolor life. I like the way all of the interconnected personalities show up in each other's books. Troy and Penny compliment each other so well, but baggage, communication angst, and future plans work to keep them apart. And I felt their conflict, their struggle, their fun, their passion. This small town is well worth the visit.

Awesome contemporary western & small town romance. Troy is a very quiet volunteer firefighter and works full time at his familys mill. Penny is acting as a reporter but hopes to move elsewhere to go into graphic designs but there are many stumbling blocks. I love the way Ms. Wright develops characters and wonderful romantic stories. I received a commentary copy of this book Via Booksprout and chose to write a review. I look forward to reading future books by this author. ...more

Long Valley is definitely a place to live and love. This story is about Troy, a quiet volunteer firefighter in Sawyer, and Penny, a chatterbox city girl at heart. They cant be more different but they feel an strong and deep connection. Can Troy and the people in Sawyer convince Penny that Long Valley is where she belong?
