Ignite is the third book in the Firefighters of Montana series, written by Nicole Helm. Happy to be starting at a new hospital, Dr. Lina McArthur finds herself with a stubborn patient. Injured smokejumper Firefighter Ace Clark has been stitched up, has a concussion and is fast becoming impatient with the amount of medical staff at Kalispell Regional Hospital, Montana, who’d asked him questions about his injuries. After venting his anger at Lina, he panics when he realizes that he somehow knew her, having met her a long time ago whilst in foster care. Lina is equally in shock when she sees Ace’s name tag, recognizes those eyes and suspects that Ace Clark might actually be Dean Clark, whose sister, Jess, is her best friend. As they both try to dig deeper and deeper into each other’s past in order to get to the truth, they do the unthinkable ... and begin falling for each other. Ace will do anything to keep his secret, and his past, from those around him. But when you are in love, priorities change. As Ace realizes that Lina is emotionally invested in his life and she declares her love for him, he runs. After all, jumping into a wildfire is much less scary than falling in love.
Nicole Helm’s wonderfully romantic story about two people who had crossed paths in their youth is one which brought tears to my eyes, both in sadness and joy. With each of the characters being so stubborn, it is intriguing, not to mention comical, to see how each of them tries to break down the wall built around the other as they tried to connect. There are many humorous parts in the book which carry dark undertones, blending painful pasts with hopes and dreams of the present. Both Lina and Ace had been running their whole lives from who they had once been and where they had come from. Although their reasons for running differed, their determination to weigh up the pros and cons of letting the past back into their present was an emotional labyrinth which I took great pleasure in exploring. I very much enjoyed Ignite and recommend it to readers who enjoy suspense, drama, action and humor in a wonderful romantic adventure.
