They're the Bachelor Firemen of San Gabriel

When fireman Fred Breen rescues a bachelorette party after a construction crane collapses onto their limo, the media labels him the "Bachelor Hero." But all Fred can think about is the petite brunette with the sexy mane of dark curls who bolted away from him faster than a wildfire after he carried her to safety. And when he discovers she's none other than Rachel Kessler, the daughter of a tech billionaire, the girl whose kidnapping riveted the nation, he intends to learn every intimate detail about this intriguing woman who sets his pulse on fire.

Rachel can't deny the lean-muscled firefighter is smokin' hot. But after having one too many drinks at the bar where she first meets him, Rachel knows she's made a fool of herself. Yet when he rescues her from the limo, she feels safe for the first time since she was held for ransom as a child. Then her overprotective father insists Fred be her bodyguard—and his close presence kindles a burning desire that only he can extinguish.

With her dark curls falling back over his arm, she tilted her head back to glare at him. “I had the situation handled.”

“You’re welcome,” he said grimly.

She seemed to puzzle over that for a second. “I guess I was supposed to say thank you?”

“Some people would at least consider it.”

Her quick shimmer of a smile cast sparks of light into their grungy surroundings. “Who are you, anyway? Why do you keep”—she gestured wildly, bonking him on the chin—“popping up like this? Did my father hire you?”

“What?” The throb in his chin distracted Fred from her odd question.

“He insisted on hiring the limo driver, but he didn’t tell me about hiring anyone else.”

He had no idea what she was talking about, but she seemed to forget about the subject anyway. He headed down the hall, toward the bar. Surprisingly, she didn’t ask to be put down, and he didn’t offer. She needed to be with her friends. And for some reason, he needed to make sure she was safe. Besides, it felt good, holding her in his arms, so good he sort of lost track of time. The hallway seemed to go on forever, and yet end too soon.
