WILDFIRE AND ROSES by Hope Malory is a sweet contemporary romance. This romance is about a hero and heroine who you know are perfect for each other, but they are established in their careers on opposite sides of the country.

Beasley McLemore is driven to make her landscaping business in the foothills of the Tennessee Smoky Mountains the best. She wants her family and the community to be proud of her. She has always fantasized about

To say their first meeting was a little tense would be an understatement, but when Beasley proves she has chops on a mountain rescue mission, Will realizes there is more to this woman than a pretty face. The biggest problem to their budding relationship is distance and neither is ready to commit enough to move across the country. Besides, Beasley is a business owner and it takes all of her time, attention and energy.

When Beasley loses her business to fire, her tentative friendship/attraction to

Deep emotions.

This story is full of love. A growing love between Beasley and Will, love for family, friends, your hometown, and your job. It took some tears, deep discussions with family and friends and looking at what is most important with themselves for an answer.

Wildfire and Roses is a sweet and relatively chaste romance from Hope Malory.  I really appreciated the realism in Ms. Malory’s story.  She provides readers with thoroughly developed main and secondary characters that readers can’t help but love. Ms. Malory has infused a bit of mystery and family drama into this contemporary romance as well.

The story takes place over the period of a year, and it covers a lot of ground in terms of Beasley's family history and her astonishingly busy life.  Unbekno

Will Gregor was brought up by his father to believe that men are rugged and women are soft, but admires strong-willed women. In fact, if he could imagine the perfect woman—smart, competent, professional, with a bit of sassiness—it would be Beasley McLemore, but he’s just gotten out of an eight-year relationship, and he’s not in a hurry to entangle himself.

Beasley is a planner, entrepreneur, and experienced hiker and climber. Her beloved grandmother just died, she has a business to run and a fami

This is a nice contemporary that will draw a reader in pretty fast with a good lead-in in how Beasley and Will meet – with a little boy missing on a trail and both of them being on the team that volunteers in the search. Will is a firefighter/smokejumper and is not thrilled to have a thin woman on the team, but Beasley proves herself pretty quickly.

This is a good debut novel, and the backstories of the characters, even the secondary characters, are very well developed and interesting – my only w

What happens when you fall in love with someone who lives on the other side of the country and your life is settled where you are? Hope Malory has created a fast-paced love story that will ring true for many men and women caught in just that position. Love in the modern era isn't easy, and it comes with all kinds of difficulties for a modern young businesswoman, like Beasley from the Smoky Mountains, and an engaging smokejumper like Will from the West Coast. They aren't kids, and they each have ...more

This book is perfect for anyone who loves the outdoors and nature (or anyone who likes to cozy-up inside reading about it!). Great representation of a capable, impressive woman who can hang with the best in search and rescue and other challenges. Beautiful imagery of wildlife and outdoor settings. Sweet story of loss, love, and redemption.
Sally Brandle
Characters you root for, tough choices, beautiful scenery, and plot twists and turns make this a heartwarming and fulfilling read. From the first pages, you'll feel dropped into the story and want to know outcomes-so plan your day or night accordingly.
