Weekend Writing Warrior – 7/7/13

Switching gears a little today…

This bit comes from Rescue Me, a short story I wrote for the upcoming Smokin’ Hot Firemen anthology ON SALE 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. 🙂


Her front door exploded.

One second it was intact, the next, shards of shrapnel from the wood frame showered the rug and pinged off the walls. Addi screeched, instinctively raising her arms to shield her face. The hulking figure of a man filled the open doorway. She had barely a moment to register the vision of a firefighter in full gear before he lunged through the door, barreling straight for her. She sucked in a sharp breath and the knot unraveled. Damp terry cloth hit the floor in a heap at her feet and his hard shoulder pressed into her stomach. He lifted her off the ground and tossed her over his back as if she were no more than a curl of ash.



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.
