It’s no surprise by now that I am a massive KM Lowe fan. When she told me that Burning Love felt entirely different, I worried I would hate it, but I couldn’t have if I’d tried.

Excerpt:
I've had the worst two years ever, between losing Jase's fiancée in that fire, fighting to bring him back from the edge of the abyss we were close to losing him to, and now Ali and her moods and tantrums. I honestly don't know whether I'm coming or going.

With Marks story re-engaging the readers (I really wish mo

Wow!!! What a roller coaster ride!!!!! I felt horrible for Mark and everything that Alisha put him through....why are women such b*tches!!!!!

My heart was breaking for Mark and all that he endured to get his daughter. I loved all the supporting characters, especially Alex and Grace.

This was a quick read and a good read!!

Burning Love has burned itself into my soul! I don’t know how I’ll calm down and sleep after that rollercoaster! What an incredible book!

Burning Love is unique and well written. It is a tremendously suspenseful book, and I was unable to put the book down until I reached the end. My heart ached for Mark and his missing baby.

Mark was so strong and loving that I liked him instantly. It killed me to watch him breaking down. Alex was a rock and a breath of fresh air. The secondary characters were viv

This is a spin off from my Burning Hearts Duet. You don't need to have read the other books, but this is a character from those books. If you've read the other books, you've already been introduced to Mark.

This book comes under a contemporary/suspense genre. It's quite different from the Burning Hearts Duet, but I hope you all fall in love with it just the same.

WOW, what a story, what a read, what a second chance at romance for this Firefighter. Mark has been there for his friend Jace since he lost his fiance a few years ago and is now with him as Jace and Grace are together. But this time, it will be Jace to be there for Mark as his girlfriend not only gives birth to his daughter, but takes off with that baby shortly after her birth, leaving a bewildered and heartbroken Mark behind. He doesn't love Ali anymore, she doesn't love him either, but he fell ...more

Such a wonderful book that kept me on my toes throughout.
Mark is a firefighter who’s excited at becoming a father, his partner Ali however has been acting very peculiar throughout the pregnancy.
There relationship is strained and very unhealthy.
Don’t want to give too many spoilers but Ali and the baby disappear and the investigation is full of surprises danger and angst.
Mark has an amazing support system throughout, you may remember some characters from this series tho this could be read as a s

Wow you’ve done it again Kelly another fab read. I do love these firemen it’s like catching up with family. We’ve seen Jase all settled and it was nice to catch up on Mark’s life. I don’t want to give any spoilers but I have to say I highly recommend the burning series. With gorgeous firemen what’s not to love.

This is book two to Burning Hearts featuring Jase’s best friend Mark. If you haven’t read the first book their might be some spoilers.

When I found out Mark was getting a book I was super excited because I loved him in the first book. We end Burning Hearts with Mark finding out his girlfriend Ali is pregnant. There relationship hasn’t been the greatest lately but they decide to try for the baby.

I honestly don't know whether I'm coming or going. I’m grateful for the friends and family I have, but

Absolutely adored this book. The author has written a very heartfelt wonderful storyline with characters that you can’t help but love and root for. The emotions in this book will have your heart breaking and soaring throughout.

Mark, our sexy firefighter, is about to become a father, something he is very excited and happy about. However his girlfriend, Ali, has become distant and moody and all but pushes him away. Mark doesn’t understand her sudden change as they were so happy to begin with, but

This book was a fast an easy read in the Burning Hearts universe. It can be read as a complete standalones, but characters of the Burning Hearts duet will reappear.
The story started smack dab in the middle of the action and the drama and suspense didn’t lessen till the end. The characters were okay and seemed real, but didn’t have a lot of development through the story. Surprisingly the male character was “weaker” than the female and not that alpha

HOLY HELL BATMAN! Burning Love started with a bang, and NEVER let up on all the suspense, and edge of my seat goodness. K.M. Lowe seriously wrote a story that I never saw coming, and her talented shined brightly cover to cover. It all starts with yummy fireman, Mark Mackinven becoming a father when his girlfriend gave birth to their daughter. And what should have been the happiest day of his life, quickly turned into a nightmare of epic proportions when she disappears from the hospital with thei ...more

Burning Love by K.M Lowe is a spin off of the Burning Hearts Novels. If you don't mind having tissues to hand, then I truly recommend this read.

Secrets about Ali's family come to light and they will stop at nothing to get Mark out of the picture.

Wow this is an emotional read! I loved this book so much. I was in love with Mark. He tried his best to be the devoted father to be. My heart broke so hard to Mark, there was on point I was crying to hard I had to set the book down and do my dishes. In the end my heart broke for Ali too! I loved how close the firefighters was. This book is full of twists and turns, just when I thought things was starting to fall in to place for Mark BOOM something happens that has me in tears and wanting to hug ...more

Burning Love is an emotional read that will have you reaching for the tissues as you see Mark fight for his daughter. We've already seen some of Mark’s strength in the first two books of this series when he supports Jason, but we really get to see his incredible strength and determination in this book. The story is full of twists and turns that leave you wanting to read quicker so that you can see what happens next.

Burning Love was such a wonderful story. It ingrained itself into my heart immediately. It was heartbreaking to read at times, it has twists and turns to keep you on the edge of your seat but it's also a story about finding that one person you are meant to spend your life with.

Mark is a firefighter and about to become a first time dad. As soon as he lays eyes on his new daughter he's in love but then everything starts to spiral out of control and he faces losing her forever.

I was lucky enough to receive and ARC of this book in return for an honest review.
After reading the other books in this series, I didn’t think it could get any better. How wrong I was. This book is filled with a rollercoaster of emotions while firefighter Mark goes in search of his baby daughter. There were so many twists and turns and when I thought I’d worked out what was happening, the author took the story in a different direction. It had me in tears, made me laugh.

This book is a crazy roller coaster of emotions and I couldn’t be happier with the way it all worked out. The characters are written in a way that makes it easy to connect with them and feel the angst that they do. This book is a spin off of another series by this author but you do not need to read that first as this is a complete standalone. In fact this is the first book I have read by this author and I highly recommend that you check it out!

Emotional

I was so excited to read this after the first book. I must say though it's totally different. Be prepared for an emotional rollercoaster as Mark is led on a merry dance just to have his daughter in his life. Ali gives birth but is quickly discharged from hospital by her mum. Her family then kidnaps the baby from foster care after Mark takes Ali to court to gain access. Will they find the baby safe and well read this book to find out.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book!
Great characters and a good solid story.
There's a mystery that's full of sadness and angst. But the story overall, is one of friendship - one of love, support and strength between friends and family. And of sometimes breaking the rules and finding love the second time round.
Just make sure you have some tissues handy!

Well this book blew me away, it’s emotional, passionate and sad. Once I started I couldn’t put it down. I was hooked from page one. The more I read the more I couldn’t wait to turn the page to see what happens next. KM Lowe has written a fantastic book and I can’t wait to read more books from her.

Ovary overload.

Marks turn to have his story told.

Omg. You couldn't love this man any more. Fighting for his child, he will do anything to.make sure she is safe.
