Weekend Writing Warrior & Contest!

Before I start, I just want to show off the fabulous 5 lip bite review MsRomanticReads gave the Hot Nights in St. Blaise series (So far!) I’ve been sharing bits of these with you all along and we’ll get back to St. Blaise next week.

For today I have another tasty tidbit from Rescue Me, the short story I wrote for the Smokin’ Hot Firemen anthology AVAILABLE NOW from Cleis Press.

The tag line for my story is: When a hot firefighter breaks down the wrong door, a smart woman drops her towel. 🙂


“Gotcha. You’re tough as stale beef jerky.”

Her eyes widened then danced. She let loose a breathy laugh and turned toward the fridge, shaking her head in dismay. “I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to snap at you. It’s been a stressful night.”

“What with getting your door kicked in and being hoisted up and carried around stark naked?”


Be sure to comment on this post and I will give away a copy (trade paperback) of Smokin’ Hot Firemen! I will draw one name from all comments posted before 11:59pm July 16, 2013. Thanks!


Who can melt any woman’s heart with a single smile? The sexiest icon of all—a fireman!

They enter fiery structures with selfless courage–the very definition of the word “hero.” Women understand their allure… A soot-covered face, sweat dripping from hard, chiseled muscles, the sharp snap of suspenders—yes, only a fireman can make suspenders sexy! Delilah Devlin’s burning-hot book includes thrilling stories teeming with gorgeous firemen from some of today’s hottest romance writers.

Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to check out all of the posts from my fellow Weekend Writing Warriors!

  1. I’m still waiting for my door to be kicked in and to be carried around stark naked. When is that happening for me? lol. Fabulous, as always, Ms. Wells!

  2. Another great excerpt! I love a hero with a sense of humor! I’m dying to read this!!! 🙂

    1. Well, when you’ve been hauled around starkers in front of a fire crew, you kind of have to laugh. 🙂 Thanks!

  3. LOVE that tag line! It conjures up all kinds of naughty thoughts (see my Tweet to you *cough*) I already know I’d love the heck out of the story because I also know your brand of humor and penchant for wickedly sexy scenes. Plus you always write really awesome characters. And an anthology of firefighter stories? It’s about damn time! 😀

    1. LOL Well, the smooth ship sailed the second he kicked in her door. 😉 Thanks for commenting!

  4. Not to hijack your comments section, but this sort of happened to me once. The house we moved was hooked into the very small town’s fire alarm switchboard and the first time I burned the toast, the town siren went off. Less than a minute later, two hunky firemen were kicking in our front door and trying to haul me and my sister out. And did I mention they were hunky? We should have let them.

    Anyway, thanks for a fun run down memory lane. Great premise and great snippet!

  5. Hansen can break down my door anytime! I’ll try to make sure I’m just in a towel when he does!! I love hot firemen!!!
