Today we have Jennifer Bernard here to talk about her debut novel/series The Bachelor Firemen of San Gabriel. Here are The Book Pushers we are all big fans of a sexy fireman hero, and with a whole series of them, who wouldn’t want to know more??
New Series Description
The Bachelor Firemen of San Gabriel are fearless, smoking hot, and single. They’re heroes, but it’s their bad luck in love that makes them legendary. Rumor has it Station 1 is cursed. Maybe it’s true, maybe it isn’t, but one thing’s for sure. When these sexy firemen start falling in love, they’re in for a bumpy ride. Here’s the cover copy for the first book, THE FIREMAN WHO LOVED ME:
News producer Melissa McGuire and Fire Captain Harry Brody couldn’t be more different, though they do have one thing in common: they’re both convinced they’re perfectly wrong for each other.
But when Melissa’s matchmaking grandmother wins her a date with Brody at a bachelor auction… Sparks fly. Passion flares. Heat rises. (You get the picture.)
Add a curse, a conniving nightly news anchor, a stunningly handsome daredevil fireman, a brave little boy, a couple of exes, and one giant fire to the mix and Melissa and Brody’s love may not be the only thing that burns.
How did the idea come about
Before there was a series, there was just one book, THE FIREMAN WHO LOVED ME, and a hero, Captain Brody, who I absolutely fell in love with. I adored the world of the San Gabriel firehouse and wanted to write more, but I thought there ought to be something special or unique about this particular firehouse. Since firemen tend to be family guys (most are married) it occurred to me — well, what if this firehouse is different? What if they have to fight for love, and it’s even harder than battling fires? That’s when the idea of a curse came to me. After that, the other stories started flowing.
At this point there are three books scheduled. THE FIREMAN WHO LOVED ME is coming out in May, HOT FOR FIREMAN is out in June, and the third, SEX AND THE SINGLE FIREMAN, doesn’t have an exact date yet. But there is certainly room for more books in this series. Each book will focus on a new firefighter hero (the third one actually has a firefighter heroine too) and follow his (or her) rocky road to happily ever after. Each book will involve the same firehouse, San Gabriel Station 1, so many of the characters will return, including the heroes and heroines of the previous books. One thing I love about series is catching glimpses of the heroes/heroines from past books. I like seeing the changes in their lives, and knowing they’re still happy. So I will definitely be including that sort of thing in this series.
