This should be an easy list, right? After all, everyone needs a fireman at one
time or another during their life, even as a bystander. So here's Jennifer's
They’ve got big…hearts. For many of these men, the job isn’t just a
job, it’s a calling. Not only do they risk their lives to protect those in need,
many of these guys are involved in charity and public safety education programs.
They understand commitment, sacrifice and compassion, which makes them great
Calendars. I feel a little guilty about drooling over these guys, but since
it’s for a fantastic cause, it’s all good, right? Need to see for yourself?
Check out the FDNY Calendar of Heroes here.
Firemen are cool under pressure and can *probably* handle whatever you throw
at them in a relationship.
They’re experts at mouth-to-mouth, a skill that can come in handy on—and
Did you know lots of these guys cook? It’s a fundamental necessity in the
firehouse since firefighters put in long hours and need to eat well. I don’t
cook, but they do, and that is H-O-T-!
Prince Charming has nothing on these sexy as sin, real life heroes. What
could better demonstrate bravery than charging into a burning building to save a
They’re always there when you need them. Like at 1a.m. when you have an
unplanned home birth and need medical care and ambulance transport. (Not that
I’m speaking from experience or anything.)
Who doesn’t love a man in—or out of—uniform? I’m convinced it’s in
our DNA. Seriously, there’s a reason we go crazy for a man in turnout gear.
Remember that scene in Magic Mike where Joe Manganiello rocked the house in
bunker boots? At least, I think he was wearing boots… *dies*
Muscles…These guys are ripped! Which also means they can sweep you right off
They’re great at finding hot spots. ;-)
Jackson Hart, the hero in my new release, SEDUCING THE FIREMAN,
personifies all of these qualities, making him a swoonworthy book boyfriend and
the perfect match for Becca, a feisty Brooklynite determined to make it on her
own in the Big Apple. Sure, Becca’s got a firm three-date rule—one she has
no intention of breaking—but Jax isn’t the kind of man to give up on
something he wants. And what he wants is to light her fire…

Jennifer Bonds writes sizzling contemporary romance with sassy
heroines, sexy alphas, and a whole lot of mischief. When she's not writing or
wrangling toddlers, Jennifer can be found curled up with a good book and a
bottle of wine. Jennifer lives in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, where her overactive
imagination and a weakness for reality TV keep life interesting. She's lucky
enough to live with her very own real life hero, two adorable children, and a
pair of rambunctious dogs. Loves Buffy, Mexican food, the Winchester brothers,
and all things zombie. Sings off-key.
Firefighter Jackson Hart is back in Brooklyn and on the hunt for the girl
who’s kept him burning for ten long years. The girl he left, in a total prick
move, without saying goodbye. Now he’s determined to make it right, to hell with
her three-date rule.
But Becca’s not ready to forgive and forget. In fact, she seems determined to
stoke his fire every chance she gets. She wants to avoid sexy distractions like
him? Fine. Because what she doesn’t know—yet—is that Jax isn’t the kind of man
to give up when he wants something. And he always gets what he wants.
Having worked with Fire fighter/First Responders all my years in the E.R., I can attest to the above. Aside from the fact that I know many as friends. (Kathleen Bylsma 6:17pm May 11, 2016)
They are one of the heroes in our lives as far as I'm concerned. It's not easy being a Fireman nor what they go through on a daily basis. They deserve our praise and respect! (Bonnie Capuano 9:20am May 12, 2016)
I love firefighters because they go into fires; they risk their lives to save others. (Tanja Dancy 1:11pm May 12, 2016)
They are courageous men. (Wilma Frana 2:38pm May 12, 2016)
