Rated 4 out of 5 by from 4.25 stars-passion and flames 4.25 stars--HOT POINT is the 10th installment in M.L. Buchman’s adult, contemporary FIREHAWKS romantic, action, suspense series. This is Firehawk pilot Vern Taylor, and Mount Hood Aviation chief mechanic Denise Conroy’s storyline. Although HOT POINT is labeled the 10th installment in the series, it can be read as a standalone without any difficulty. Several of the previous installments are indie publications, novellas and short stories that I had no idea existed. Told from third person point of view HOT POINT follows Denise and Vern’s building relationship-a relationship that surprises everyone at Mount Hood Aviation but none more so than Denise herself. Denise had a reputation as a quiet, hard nosed mechanic with very little social graces or friends to count as her own. When Vern offers Denise a ride along on their latest fire fighting mission, sparks fly and Denise begins to have second thoughts about what it is she wants from life. The relationship between Denise and Vern is one of friends to lovers as our couple must navigate the wild fires of America, and a military coup in the jungles of Honduras. Denise’s past is riddled with personal self doubt, loss and a previous relationship that all but destroyed her ability to love- she has some misgivings about her involvement with a Firehawk pilot. Vern is a man whose taste in women is dramatically in opposition to the woman who calls to his heart. ML Buchman’s heroines have an inner strength, and are capable of handling whatever the hero throws in her direction. The $ex scenes are intimate and seductive but mostly implied-there is much to be said about the reader using his/her imagination. The secondary and supporting characters include Jeannie and Cal (Full Blaze); Carly and Steve (Pure Heat); a well as Majors Emily and Mark Henderson, from the original Night Stalkers series. Many of the characters cross over between series and storylines as well as the ‘secondary mission’ that involves secret government assignments where the select few find themselves in life and death situations. The interaction between the men and women is friendly with camaraderie and love. As in all of ML Buchman’s storylines, the technical detail and terminology is infinite, vast and continuous from firefighting lingo, helicopter technology, and military jargon. The fire fighting sequences are elaborate; the helicopter mechanics are intricate and analytical. HOT POINT has a little bit of everything: romance, love, family and friendships, mystery, and suspense. ML Buchman pulls the reader into the action where the heat of the flames burns the storyline images into the mind. The premise is exciting and riveting; the characters colorful, enjoyable and realistic; the romance is passionate.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hot Point I love Buchman’s writing. He invites you into the world of his characters, bringing each aspect to life in a big way. I love the technical aspects of the novel. It made everything so much more real for me. The action and firefight was unmistakable. His vivid descriptions bring everything to life in an unforgettable way. The plot also intrigued me and kept me guessing. Buchman did loose me a little with the main characters in this one. Denise’s perpetual insecurity contradicted with her career on the front line. I felt as if she went from one extreme to the next within moments. The relationship between her and Vern was a sweet romance. His genuine caring drew me to him. These two did complement one another throughout the tale. Once again Buchman has created a fast paced, action intensive novel that takes readers deep into the lives of his characters. It was a unique addition to the series and one that I enjoyed reading. Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.
