Anne Ashburn has spent her life in the shadow of her family. Anne is a
good firefighter, however, when your father is a dead hero and your
brother is the chief, it's very hard to be anything but the chief's sister.
Sister is exactly what her crew calls her and though they respect her,
Anne always has to work harder and never stops trying to prove herself.
It also makes relationships difficult, and she does not want to be
regarded as just a woman, and sleeping with a member of the team
would make that all but impossible. That is why Danny Mcguire is
making her life hell. She wants him and once she has him, it's almost
impossible to stop... Until the night when they both almost die in a fire
and her career as a firefighter is over.
Now Anne must start a new life. As she tries to leave the old one
behind, she leaves Danny too. But a new case brings up old memories
and they are once again thrown together.
