Thorne Lachlan knows a thing or two about getting himself safely out of a blaze. For years he fought in the world’s hot spots, a Commando with the Australian Army. Now, retired, he fights flames for the Royal Fire Service. When a grassfire brings him to Lang Downs, the next sheep station in danger, Thorne meets Ian Duncan and sparks fly that neither man can put out. But both men have ghosts from the past that stand in the way of moving beyond mutual attraction.

While Thorne longs for the home he could share with Ian at Lang Downs, he fears his own instability might make him a danger to others. And Ian’s always believed that the foster care nightmare he escaped before coming to Lang Downs would make any relationship impossible. Trust doesn’t come easily to Thorne or Ian until the fire’s aftermath forces them to see past the scars keeping them both from healing.

**Audiobook by William James**
I have to say that this was by far my favorite installation of this series. I absolutely fell in love with and felt for both Thorne and Ian. They both had hard things in their past to get over, but together they managed to realize they could no longer simply ignore those issues if they wanted to be together.
There is a lot of love that is shown in this book, not just between our main characters, but brotherly love and family love that comes from the other people we’ve gotten to know from previous books in the series.
I would say this is a standalone book, however, to really understand the way Lang Downs works, you’ll have to start at the beginning.
I can’t wait to read more from Ariel Tachna.
I will make one note about the narrator besides saying that I like the way he gives each character their own vocal tone so you know who is who and he reads them so well there aren’t any parts that leaves you wondering what just happened because it might’ve been read with the wrong feelings. The narrator does leave very audible swallowing noises in the audio, which I found quite distracting at times. Other than that, well done.
