Danger. It’s all I’ve ever known. All I’ve ever wanted.
Fighting fires soothes the raging beast that war created.
Allowing me to live
The rest? Maybe she can understand my hunger. For her. Dominating her. Owning her.

Danger. Domination. Destruction.

The Jackals

An elite team of smokejumpers nestled in the heart of Missoula, Montana.
By day they indulge in their penchant for danger.
By night they exude passion.
Are you ready for their brand of domination?

Prevent. Protect. Preserve. This is their motto.


“Slow down. You’ll kill us.”

“Stay quiet. You already almost did that,” he snorted.

She bristled but shrunk into the seat. When they cleared the forest and onto a straight away, she gasped. “Jesus Christ.” An eerie orange glow lit up the night sky. “We’re going to that?”

“I am. You’re staying in the truck.” He shot her another look. “Or else.”

“Hold on here. I can do what I want,” she retorted.

“This is dangerous. Do you understand? I’m not going to have you interfering or otherwise attempting to get yourself killed, no matter how much of a pain in the ass you are. I shouldn’t have brought you here, but I don’t think I had a choice. Just do as I say.”

Jessica reared up, thoughts of striking his sexy mug floating in the back of her mind.

“If you get hurt, I’ll be to blame. I can’t have that,” he added, his voice softening.

“Fine. I’ll stay in the truck.” Crossing her arms, she stared straight ahead.

“Good.” Stoker maneuvered down a darkened road, finally making a single turn. “Good God almighty.”

The entire mountainside seemed to be on fire. She craned her neck as perspiration trickled down from her hairline. She slid to the edge of her seat and pressed her hand against the glass. “What in the hell started this fire?” Fire engines and flashing blue lights came into view, sirens screaming as they rolled by.

“You mean who?”


“My thoughts anyway. Won’t know for certain until the fire investigator does his job.” He pulled the truck to the side and killed the engine. Sighing, he didn’t bother to look at her. “I’m serious about this. Stay here. You’ll be in the way and you could get hurt. I won’t be long. God knows I shouldn’t be here.”

“But—” she dared to ask.

“But nothing. I don’t want to see you get yourself injured in any way. You don’t know the terrain or the wild life. I’ll be back in a little while. Then I’ll take you home.”

Wild life. The realization she was smack in the middle of God’s country where the creatures roamed gave her a series of shivers. She opened her mouth but he was already out of the truck. When the door was slammed, the entire vehicle shook. The man was pissed. She thought about his words. Why shouldn’t he be here? Maybe he wasn’t really a fireman. Several people rushed by the truck, giving it a sideways glance. She could swear several were men she’d seen in the bar. One thing was for certain. This was more than she’d signed up for.

    1. What a great way to end the tour. Thank you for sharing.

  7. To all who have followed my tour, my deep felt thanks. I never believed that I would find anything in my retirement that I enjoy more than being a cop. I had an amazing career and would do it again in a heartbeat if I could. However, time catches up.

    Much to my surprise, I did find something, writing and publishing. I love every aspect for one reason: I have met so many wonderful people on this new path.
