The book is called Where the Heart Is. It was written by Darcy Burke.
The main male charater is Derek Sumner. He is an executive and volunteer fire fighter. While responding to a fire, he meets Chloe English. She is a teacher that left a job, a fiance and Pittsburg.
I quickly fell in love with Derek because he behaved like a knight in shining armor.
The book was easy to read and the action started almost right away. Both are what i like in a book.
