Publisher's Summary

Welcome to Paradise Valley, where the locals thrive on the rural landscape, the quirky Oregonian living, and the history of the lesbian commune that founded it.

Mixing small town attitudes with lesbian dating? Sounds like another day in Paradise.

Firefighter Krys Madison is used to the single life. Although a womanizer, she’s been experiencing a dry spell for the past...year.

By choice. Kinda.

She doesn’t realize what’s missing until she discovers a litter of kittens after a barn fire. The only one who can help is rural veterinarian Siobhan O’Connor, a reclusive woman who prefers a life of solitude - and doesn’t need someone like Krys causing trouble in her life.

Too bad Krys is instantly smitten with the redheaded beauty. Too bad Siobhan doesn’t think she’s too bad, either!

But it will take a lot of healing for Siobhan to finally move on from the breakup that still haunts her heart. Someone like Krys? Her heat may start fires Siobhan never asks to have extinguished.

A Year in Paradise Series

This is book 8 of the Year in Paradise series. Firefighter Krys finds a box of kittens while fighting a barn fire. She takes them to Dr Siobhan O'Connor, who is a large animal vet. Krys is a player and Siobhan likes to keep to herself. Sparks fly and will there be a resulting fire? Hildred Billings/Cynthia Dane is such a great writer! I highly recommend all of her books.

Summer in Paradise

Summer in Paradise heats up as firefighter Krys meets reclusive vet Siobhan. Krys has always been a bit of a player and Siobhan is sure the her ex hooked up with her. More small town drama as they work through their issues. These books are not about what happens in the bedroom but more about emotions and interactions between people

The Player and the Vet

I love the Paradise Valley stories and I really like Krys! Yeah, she is sometimes a bit to much of a hot looking player who knows she‘s hot stuff, but she is also very passionate about her job as the only female Firefighter in Paradise Valley and also a very carrying person! She loves her friends and is a genuinely a good person. This is not what Siobhan heard of her! To her Krys is just one big player and good for fast and careless one night stands. She‘s been hurt deeply by her Ex and is not open to new relationships, let alone casual dating. But four little kittens in distress brings the big player to her home. First Siobhan sees only what she wants to see and think of Krys as the enemy. Because rumors are often more than enough to build a picture of person...Krys must prove herself to her... What I really like about Paradise Valley stories is that it’s about feelings and issues of the people living there and not just about getting into bed. This was an extra nice Valley story!
