Caribou Crossing's fire chief comes from a long line of strong, independent women--who have lousy luck with men. Lark's ex-husband walked out when Jayden was born with cerebral palsy.

    All the ingredients for a good book: wounded vet, fire chief, and therapeutic riding! No, really... as a long-time volunteer for a local therapeutic riding program, I appreciate the treatment it got in this story. It can and does make a difference in people's lives. Loved the slow build of the love story. This was a relationship that built over time and created a solid connection between the H/h. The issues between them were dealt with in an adult and believable manner. Can't wait for the next Car All the ingredients for a good book: wounded vet, fire chief, and therapeutic riding!

    In the seventh book of the Caribou Crossing series, the two main characters must confront hardships that impact their lives on a daily basis.

Susan In the seventh book of the Caribou Crossing series, the two main characters must confront hardships that impact their lives on a daily basis. Though vastly different, these unexpected problems have left them vulnerable yet neither lets it show. All throughout RING OF FIRE, lots of soul-searching must be done before numerous crucial decisions are made. The journey taken by Eric and Lark is filled with convincing incidents, unanticipated desire, and exceedingly realistic emotional reactions. Susan Fox makes RING OF FIRE compellingly believable. After Major Eric Weaver was severely injured in Afghanistan and loss part of a leg, he is eventually sent to Caribou Crossing for therapy. Though it will take some time, he plans to once again be a Canadian soldier and continue with the only career that he has ever known. An unfortunate event has him meeting the town’s fire chief, Lark Cantrell, and he is greatly indebted to her assistance when he needed it most. A little later, their paths cross again when he and her son are both taking therapeutic riding lessons. Jayden was born with cerebral palsy, and he has benefited from the fun activity. Eric is not certain how much he will benefit from being on a horse, but if it might perhaps get him healed quicker, then he is willing to try after having several setbacks. Though the only reason Eric has come to Caribou Crossing is to recover his physical plus mental health, he slowly starts to actually like living in the peaceful town where folks are always friendly. Being around Lark and her energetic son is what he finds most enjoyable, especially when he and the spirited firefighter have some time alone. But she has sworn off men after her disastrous relationship with her ex-husband, while Eric thinks there is no place in a soldier’s life for a woman. But how they feel when around each other almost makes them want to reconsider their beliefs. Realism can be found on every page of RING OF FIRE. From true-to-life misfortunes to the happiest of times, I always felt as though the lives of someone I could easily know were being depicted. Descriptions of any character in the story are very genuine, and whether it pertains to their nature or a response, it is truly credible. Lark has much self-confidence about herself, and I had a great time watching her never back down from anything Eric says. How these two challenge each other is what made them such a fascinating romantic couple, although they certainly did not want to admit to it. She never wanted to get married again, while he plans to stay single. He also thinks his PTSD makes him unfit to be in a relationship. But their actions show what they cannot verbally communicate, as they repeatedly offer emotional support to each other. Susan Fox handles the matter of Eric’s mental struggles with much finesse, and any issues related to cerebral palsy are knowledgeably portrayed. Jayden is such a charming boy, and his behavior often caused me to smile. Lark and Eric definitely have no difficulty when it comes to expressing their sexual desire, and regardless of how these encounters start, they always turn very sultry because of lusty craving. From time to time, a character from a past Caribou Crossing story is featured. It was great to revisit these likable people, and any of their published books can be read out of order without feeling lost at all. I am really looking forward to the upcoming holiday release in the series. A contemporary romance by Susan Fox is always heartfelt and never disappoints. Copy received for Always Reviewing blog

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. One of the best in the series. I like that Lark and Eric were more mature and responsible than some other characters in the series. She is straightforward and honest, no game playing or theatrics for this woman. I was glad her friends (especially Brooke) set her straight about compromise in relationships. At least she took it in and analyzed it correctly. The proposal by Eric to all three in Larks family was really special.

    This is a hot and steamy romance about two people who finds their way to each other. One is a soldier amputee dealing with PTSD. The other is the chief firefighter who is divorced and has a son with cerebral palsy. Despite the luggage that they each carry, it's heartwarming  with hot sexy times.  This is a hot and steamy romance about two people who finds their way to each other.

Lark Cantrell is the fire chief of a small town in British Columbia of Caribou Crossing. She loves her job and with her mother Mary and her son Jaden who has Cerebral Palsy.

Lark Cantrell is the fire chief of a small town in British Columbia of Caribou Crossing. She loves her job and with her mother Mary and her son Jaden who has Cerebral Palsy. She doesn't need a man in her life and is satisfied with occasional hook ups. But when she meets Major Eric Weaver at Sally Ryland's Riding where Jaden is taking therapy riding lessons, she may have to re-think her idea of having a man in her life. Major Eric Weaver has just settled into Caribou Crossing where his therapist has recommended taking the riding therapy to help him with his PTSD. He's returned from Afghanistan as an amputee and grieving for his best friend who was killed in the same IED explosion that cost him his leg. He is determined to return to Land Force with the Canadian Army but he needs to learn to deal with his PTSD first. When Lark meets Eric and saves his life during a house fire where he is renting, they both feel an attraction that they both feel the need to explore. I have to say that even though I didn't read the previous six books in the series, this addition is fantastic and I loved it! The tender blooming love story between Lark and Eric and the understanding mother that he finds in Mary Cantrell is heart warming. But its the friendship that blooms between Eric and Jaden that will have you loving the story even more. Will Eric return to the Canadian Army? Can the love they soon feel for each other last between Lark and him? Lark wants to stay in her home town and loves her job as a fire fighter, its all she's ever wanted and has worked hard for. Eric knows what its like to be constantly moving around to different bases because he grew up with his father's military career and won't ask her to give up her dream. The Ring of Fire will have your heart and soul from the beginning to the very last page and I highly recommend reading it.

    Ring of Fire by Susan Fox Have read other works by the author and have enjoyed the books. This one is about Lark Cantrell and she's the fire chief at Caribou Crossings. Her mother and 10 year old son are used to her leaving in the middle of the night to guide the other firefighters and help put fires out. I do enjoy firefighter stories as I learn so much from them, interesting topic and I'm not sure why.

I do enjoy firefighter stories as I learn so much from them, interesting topic and I'm not sure why. Within the first 50 pages I've already learned a few new things: what horn on saddle is for, how CP patients and those with articial legs can do things... Major Eric Weaver is doing rehab there in British Columbia, on leave from the army when Lark pulls him out of the burning house he was renting. Her son Jayden who has CP and he are paired with horses, it's therapy and I love hearing all about it. Lark has sworn off men since her husband had walked out after learning their baby had CP but she starts to get hot and bothered about Eric. She likes how Jayden has another male he can talk to-things she can't relate to...They become lovers over time and then some unexpected things occur that might help or not.. hot steamy sex scenes. Excerpt from a Holiday in Your Heart is also included at the end. Would enjoy reading more of this town in BC. I received this book from The Kensington Books in exchange for my honest review

    I was thrilled to see that Lark Cantrell received her own story in Ring of Fire by Susan Fox. I found her a memorable character when she appeared briefly with her son in Love Somebody Like You. I was glad at while reading that book that Ben showed no interest whatsoever in her. Still her character stood out to me. From the title, Ring of Fire I should have guessed it would be Lark’s story since she is the town fire chief.

Strong, independent yet a nurturing person, it is easy to find her appealing. Even a hardhearted person will fall for Jaden! Then there is Major Eric Weaver, who is just as appealing. In his strength, his flaws are also shown which continued to make this story believable. I enjoyed seeing these two conquer life and their fears. I loved this small town series by Susan Fox. While I enjoy small town romances in general, this series always feels fresh and original. Each of the characters face some kind of life changing struggle though each one is different. One of my favorite series. Copy provided by the publisher through Net Galley for an honest review.

    This is a well written steamy romance between two unique but very real characters. I liked that Lark is a fire chief and that Eric is a veteran. That Jayden, who has CP, helps to bring them together is wonderful. I had not read any of the previous books in this series but that wasn't a problem. Thanks to Netgalley for the ARC.

    I was given an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an independent review. A very moving story told in a sympathetic way. I loved the characters and the strong blossoming relationships. The strength of the individuals despite their circumstances is very well portrayed. It was also an interesting insight into PTSD. More than a romance this book was very enjoyable. .
