The seventh book in
The Coffee Shop Series


I can be many things (barista, karaoke legend, impromptu-actress, whatever), but a famous author I am not. 

Which makes it even weirder when a guy named Bastian rushes into my coffee shop and wants me to pretend to be him, a famous romance author hidden under a female pen name. 

Um, what?

No thanks.

Except . . . I can’t deny something is charming about his brooding reclusiveness, or maybe that’s just the sexy scent of smoke that follows him everywhere. My obsessive love of GIF's clearly annoys him, but it doesn’t stop him from begging me for help either. This guy is desperate. 

When everything goes up in flames, we’re left to deal with the wreckage.



The last thing I want to do is ask for help, particularly from a dynamo like Dahlia. She has so much energy and I’m not sure what to do with it. 
But I’m about to lose everything. 
While the mountains outside of Pineville burn and my HotShot crew and I frantically try to save the town, my hidden career is about to explode. 
And I need that career. 
Dahlia is the simplest answer to my problems, even though I don’t like the questions she asks or the answers that come. 
Then the fire encroaches on the mountains near town and Dahlia is in danger. I can’t help but rush to save her. Because on the other side of those flames, she’s saving me. In more ways than I could have ever imagined.
And where there’s smoke, there’s fire.
SMOKE AND FIRE is a clean, contemporary romance (but not religious) with a little sizzle and spice and a guaranteed happily-ever-after. It’s the seventh book in the Coffee Shop Series. This book can be read as a standalone, but maximum enjoyment comes from reading the series from the beginning.

Loved it!

It amazes me how even after 6+ books, every couple is a complete new story! This particular couple is one of my favs, all that giddiness that comes with the “new crush” took me back to younger years and made me remember those butterfly moments and all the uncertainty of not being able to read other peoples mind hahaha I love how the story unfolded, and how each character was so true to what life is like when you are young and trying to find your way… thank you Katie for another lovely story!

An extremely highly recommended read – just fabulous

Dahlia works at the Frolicking Moose and does not believe in romance. One of her friends puts her onto a series which she says is absolutely fantastic and written by an author with just one name — Jess. She starts reading and is hooked. Bastian is a wildfire firefighter and author. But what types of books does he write? That is a mystery. But he is in desperate need of an assistant to handle social media, emails etc. It completely does his head in. He chooses Dahlia and she accepts. A dangerous fire. A glut of emails. Crazy questions. A stalker perhaps. An accident. A beautiful cat. Pre-launch jitters. An agent. A shock visitor. A very sick sister. A father with dementia. Fire getting bigger. A crazy woman. Unrequited love. Masses of women. A coffee shop full of women. Horses in danger. Have to get them out. Truths come out. A searing kiss. A fire put out. A new life and lots of love.
