altNew Release 5/28




Sasha Kendall grew up in a family of firefighters. So when she falls hard for Jack Turner, her brother’s best friend and fellow firefighter, everyone's thrilled. But when her brother is killed in the line of duty, Sasha knows she can’t handle another loss. Jack will have to choose between her and his career...




Jack knew Sasha was meant for him right away—the same way he knew he was meant to fight fires and saves lives. Letting Sasha go was the hardest thing he’d ever had to do. But even though she left town, he’s never given up hope that heat between them still burns. . .




Four years later, Jack and Sasha meet again at a friend’s wedding—older, wiser, and hotter than ever. Will they flame out, or do they finally have what it takes to keep their love alive for good. . .

About Leora Gonzales

I am an original Kansas girl who misses the Sunflower State every day. I spend my time reading and writing while making sure my two kids (and alarmingly accident-prone husband!) don’t kill themselves or each other. My addictions include: tattoos, cursing, good food, and good company, though not necessarily in that order. I believe that tough moments in life can be combated with good humor so I find a reason to laugh or smile daily.

Naked Truths

I have...

  • 15 tattoos
  • 2 rescue dogs
  • intense hatred for any team that beats the Royals (go Kansas Cityyyy!)
  • allergies to over 200 naturally occurring substances indigenous to Earth. (Beam me up, Phaetons!)
  • an addiction to cleaning and cleaning products
  • a crazy Mexican father who I can mimic perfectly
  • an awesome marriage of 14 years (we've been together for 15) to a man I adore and who worships the quicksand I walk on
  • a happy life I wouldn't trade for the world (but maybe for Johnny Depp! ;))
