  • Excellent debut to an innovative new series!

    A BURNING PASSION is the first book of the new THE INHERITANCE SERIES, as well as book 8 in Kathryn Shay’s Hidden Cove Firefighters series. THE INHERITANCE SERIES is an interesting concept, where several authors reprise characters from their own series, but where billionaire Harold Hopewell upon his death, has left bequests that will change many lives. Daniel Collins has been divorced from his wife Clare for about a year; she had said she was sick and tired of not being able to live the way she was accustomed to, given her posh upbringing, and she left Dan for a rich man. Dan never really saw it coming, and it was a good thing he had his friend and colleague Lucy to lean on in his time of need. Lucy has been in love forever with Dan, but never said a word: first, he was married, then she wouldn’t be a rebound girlfriend. Dan stayed on rather friendly terms with Clare, mostly because of his two children whom he dotes on. One evening, Lucy’s unrequited love takes a turn for the better with Dan, until the latter hears that he has inherited a whole lot of money, and Clare is on his trail upon hearing this and determined to make them a family once again. A BURNING PASSION takes place in Hidden Cove, NY; being unfamiliar with Ms. Shay’s series, I was pleasantly surprised that I did not feel lost, but rather very comfortable with the firefighters of Station 11. The characters are so well drawn out, that I felt I knew them well right away, and I loved the banter between all of them. The author’s familiarity with the workings of a fire department is also obvious, because I’ve never been in one and I felt I knew how everything worked; the rescue sequences are also terrific, especially the one that led to the bequest. I really enjoyed Lucy’s and Dan’s backstories; Lucy’s a pretty wonderful woman, but I felt like slapping Dan more than a few times; you’ll understand why when you read A BURNING PASSION. The fact is, the relationship between Lucy, Dan, and ultimately Clare feels so realistic, and it is complicated and messed up because of Clare, and also because Dan had not stopped loving her until she betrayed him. A BURNING PASSION is a quick read, Ms. Shay’s writing is impeccable, and everything flows very smoothly. I look forward to reading the upcoming books in THE INHERITANCE SERIES, as well as Kathryn Shay’s Hidden Cove Firefighters! I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

  • Love Fireman!!

    I love the Hidden Cove stories, very true characters that are fireman, that I hold true to my heart. Dan is divorced and starts dating his friend, Lucy. Dan's wife left him because he was not rich enough to provide for her tastes. Dan comes upon a large inheritance from saving a life. Now all of a sudden, Claire wants back in the picture and throws Dan's new found love in a tail spin. I listened to this book, and could not stop listening. I will admit, I wanted to strangle Claire a few times. So happy that Dan listened to his heart. I highly recommend this book!

  • A Burning Passion

    Kathryn always gets it right with her stories. The right amount of family, the right amount of love and the question mark on the relationships.

  • UPHEAVEL. FROM DIVORCE. NOW WITH INHERITANCE

    A new series.by Katheryn,interesting plot a lot of thoughtful issues to ponder. I enjoyed getting to know the crew at Station 11. In this we get a close and personal look at Dan. Grieving and trying to understand how his wife of 14 years could divorce him , uprooting the lives of their two children.Twelve year old Gemma, and 10 year old Nathan. He knew his wife Claire still loved him, but she wanted money now. Then finding out that it didn't bring her the happiness she wanted. Then we meet Lucy, who works with Dan. A stolen kiss, years before has made her realize the love she has for Dan. A single's party, they go to, shakes up their friendship, and true feelings are revealed. Before they knew where they were headed in this relationship Dan inherits a lot of money, and portfolio. Made me ponder why he told everyone, the crew who are like family at Station 11 but his wife ? By telling her, opened up all kinds of questions, and problems. Finding out that Claire. was unhappy and now wanted him back. Or will he stay with his friend and now the love of his life ? Even though shorter than her others, this was well written, and enjoyable to read. Looking forward to other stories of the other crew members. Given book by author for my honest opinion, of which I have given.

  • Off to a Great Start

    A Burning Passion is the first in a series of short stories by several different authors. I love the concept. Is there enough time to fully go in depth on the back story, and the many aspects of the characters? The answer to that is, no. That being said, I promised to give an honest review in exchange for a copy of this book and that is what I am going to give. I really enjoyed this story. A real hero is married with kids and doesn't earn enough money for his wife to "be happy". She leaves him for a rich man, takes the kids and still she is not happy...big surprise. She of course wants him back when she finds out he is no longer poor. There is the conflict. What is this "hero" a dedicated firefighter, supposed to do? Forgive her and give his children back a whole family or follow his heart to another hero? I found lots of conflict and pain and most of all love. I thought the story was well thought out, well written and yes....it was too short. I wanted more. I always do when Kathryn Shay is writing. She is a great story teller. I was very happy to have read this story. I think you too, will enjoy this first in a new series, that connects several authors on a new adventure.

    Thanks for your feedback!
