MJ Fredrick—my fabulous friend and fellow Noodler—is making her publishing debut! WHERE THERE’S SMOKE is a March release from Wild Rose Press. As I write this, her book is Number One on their current bestseller list. Congratulations, MJ! Such a gorgeous cover, and such a wonderful story!
Is there such a thing as being too close, knowing each other too well?
Lauren Stokes put a lid on her attraction toward her best friend Seth Escamilla years ago. She would never be his type of woman, so why torture herself? When sexual awareness strikes during a friendly football game, she is stunned. He is guilty for injuring her and looks after her, but Lauren resorts to wisecracking to distance herself from him.
Seth is confused by the new emotions swamping him. This is Lauren, his best friend, someone he has fun with, not someone he has fun with! He has no plan to settle down, and he won¹t risk their friendship when they have no future.
They resist the new attraction, and the efforts of their families to push them together. When a wedding loosens their inhibitions, keeping the new aspect of their relationship a secret is harder than they would have thought.
Anyone else thinking that MJ seems to have a thing for firefighters?!
