Warm up this Christmas with a sexy cowboy firefighter who knows how to ignite flames as well as put them out...

Trey Duval is a rancher, proud as can be of his Wildcat Ranch. He's also the top volunteer firefighter of Wildcat Bluff, Texas, the town that pulls out all the stops for its Christmas festivities.
City girl Misty Reynolds comes to Wildcat Bluff just in time to help Trey put out a suspicious fire, leading him to dub her his "Christmas angel." Unfortunately, Misty's past has left her with terrible memories of fire, and of Christmastime.
As the two are thrown together again and again, Trey finds himself wanting Misty more and more, and Misty feels stronger and braver when Trey is around. Though their trust grows slowly, their passion for each other is burning hot...

My Rating: Five Sexy Stars*****
OHHH EMMM GEEE! I LOVED A Cowboy Firefighter for Christmas by Kim Redford! This was my first time reading the work of Kim Redford, but it certainly won't be my last! Until a few days ago, I'd never even heard of Redford but after only one book, this author has now been added to my favorites list. I even raced back to purchase the other two ebooks available in Redford's Smokin' Hot Cowboys Series. That alone is quite a recommendation. But I may as well be totally honest, folks, Redford had me at smokin' hot cowboys and firefighter. lol... I fell in love with the town of Wildcat Bluff and its entire community along with both protagonists, Trey Duval, and Misty Reynolds. I especially enjoyed the real-life history of Wildcat Bluff and its former Comanche residents that Redford skillfully wove into the storyline. I was immediately smitten with handsome volunteer cowboy firefighter Trey Duvall. He was just the cat's meow and made all the ladies purr, including me! Yes, my cat reference was intentional and will make total sense once you read the book. After all, the name of the town is Wildcat Bluff so that should give you a little hint! lol... And the intelligent, beautiful, independent troubleshooter/investigator Misty Reynolds was an absolute delight! Misty was so smart, sweet, selfless, determined, and courageous, but my heart broke for her. These two characters started out as potential adversaries with an immediate mutual attraction for each other. At first glance, Trey and Misty appeared to be complete opposites but had.more in common than they could ever have imagined. Misty was a dyed in the wool city girl at heart with a painful past, vehement dislike for anything related to Christmas, and severe panic attacks resulting from a childhood trauma. Trey was a cowboy through and through, one with a heart of gold and could charm the spots off a Junebug. He loved country living, his ranch, the community of Wildcat Bluff, and especially Christmas, and the very last thing he needed in his life was a city girl. But we all know, the heart wants what the heart whats. Trey and Misty found it impossible to deny the pull between them and soon discovered it was so much more than just physical attraction. Their chemistry was off the charts and they complemented each other perfectly. I could feel the sparks flying between these two and it was hilarious as they tried to dance around each other. Misty may have been Trey's Christmas angel, but Trey turned out to be Misty's Christmas miracle. Sigh... So emotional, so sweet, so sexy, and soooo heartwarming! No spoilers from me but I will say this... Sexy, charismatic and loyal, but very lonely cowboy firefighter who loves Christmas and is dedicated to his community and the people he cares about-check! Beautiful, independent, kindhearted, city-girl troubleshooter with a painful past, an extreme dislike for anything relating to Christmas but determined to overcome her fears and do her job-check! A wonderful cast of colorful, engaging characters and a close-knit community that celebrates Christmas in a big way-check! An urgent assignment, a baffling case, and a dangerous firebug with ulterior motives-check! Mystery, suspense, humor, a little angst, and a whole lot of steamy romance- you bet! That and a whole lot more!
Did I like this book? No, I LOVED it! There was so much I adored about this story. The story was beautifully written in the third person with clearly defined his and her perspectives. The dialogue was smart, snappy, natural, well executed, and flowed effortlessly. But my absolute favorite component was the large cast of well-developed characters. They were realistic, engaging, and endearing, and I'm quite sure we'll be seeing most of them in future books. I loved the fictional world/community of Wildcat Bluff that Redford created for this series. Although the town and characters of the story may be fictional, I discovered that Wildcat Bluff is a real place and the rich history of the area shared in this book is actually true! And Redford did a fabulous job of weaving it into her story. I particularly enjoyed Redford's writing style. Her vividly detailed descriptions of the town, its residents, and the surrounding countryside were masterfully written. I found myself completely immersed in the story. Although the storyline included a little mystery and suspense, it's not the main element. By the halfway point, I knew who was causing all the trouble but that did not spoil my reading experience, not at all. The primary focus of this story is the romantic journey of two lonely people finding love and the obstacles they must overcome to secure their happy ever after. Will I read this author again? Absolutely! In fact, upon finishing this book, I raced back and purchased the next two of the series. Would I recommend it? You bet, and I am but for adult readers. There is no profanity, but it is steamy and does contain several tastefully written sex scenes. Redford's writing may not be everyone's cup of tea, but it is mine. I prefer a book I can settle in with, sink my teeth into, and really get to know the characters, and that's exactly what this author delivered. Redford's books are not for people who want to devour a book in a couple of hours, but rather for those folks who enjoy savoring the words. You don't gulp fine whiskey; you sip it and appreciate the taste. I'm almost 70 years young and have been an avid reader for 65 of those years. It takes something truly extraordinary to impress me. I'll admit, before leaving this review, I did check out the second book of the series, just to see if Redford was a one-hit wonder, but I'm happy to announce it's just as good as the first. And finally, was I entertained? Completely! I giggled, snickered, snorted, sniffled, and sighed through the entire story but by the end, I was happy, satisfied, and well entertained. Fabulous entertainment and an awesome read!
I'm a rural volunteer firefighter and of course couldn't help but critique that. The best I can think of to say about the firefighting is that I was happy Misty was sent to direct traffic at one woods/grass fire. That was a a safe enough place for her, considering her refusal to leave the scene.
The day she arrived and Trey commanded her to help him fight a wildland fire, I was appalled. Considering how she was dressed, that was scary. Add her fear of fire and I'm led to believe Trey was the best looking, smooth talker in all of Texas.
I read the whole book, didn't skim (much) but came away a bit disappointed. I really liked the description of Misty's job but it fell flat as the book didn't develop that part of the story. Trey's work on his ranch wasn't portrayed well either. He mainly wanted to cook steaks, fight fire and get cozy with Misty.
All in all, it was a fun, quick read.
I can’t decide which of the heat sources felt hotter to read about:
The heat wave and the fires that were to extinguish in the story, or the fire between both protagonists. Both felt equally hot.
Add some southerner’s charm and I was close to self- ignition.
This Christmas novel is sweet and exciting on so many levels and certainly something to enjoy over the holidays!
