High Heat by Philippa Grey-Gerou:
With a flourishing catering business and an acclaimed restaurant to his name, chef Roman Geary had finally made it. Until his dreams go up in smoke, literally, when a fire devastates his kitchen. He finds a temporary home at the catering hall of the local fire company, putting him in close quarters with the attractive firefighter Jacob Niemczyk, who proves himself as adept in the kitchen as he is at fighting fires.
While Roman is skilled in the kitchen, he finds romance a bit trickier, but the two find their way into each other’s arms despite missteps and inconvenient interruptions. Their relationship looks to be off to a smoking start until a massive fire makes Roman question how willing his is to risk his heart to a man who constantly risks his life.
They say that if you can’t stand the heat, you should stay out of the kitchen. But when food is your life and your heart is on the line, sometimes it’s the safest place to be.
Five Alarm Lover by Michael Barnette:
On Rowland Mining colony Moon Three Delmar 'Del' Preston responds to a mine fire. What he doesn't realize is the fire will lead to the one thing he needs most in his life... love.
Rowland mining executive, Aaron Halford has been called a freak--and worse--his entire life. Born with psi-talent Aaron doesn't need any added trouble in his life. But he finds trouble in the form of a mysterious man made of flames and a hot firefighter he wants worse than he's ever wanted anyone.
The fire isn't the only heat these two men experience. Sparks of lust ignite and burn hot for them both, but the risk of a 'suit' and 'grunt' having a relationship has consequences, consequences more dangerous than either of them realize.
