First Look: Jennifer Bernard’s It’s a Wonderful Fireman (December 2, 2014)

It's a Wonderful Fireman by Jennifer BernardJennifer Bernard

Hard-edged fireman Dean Mulligan has never been a big fan of Christmas. Twinkly lights and sparkly tinsel can’t brighten the memories of too many years spent in ramshackle foster homes. Although he’s established himself as one of the top firefighters at San Gabriel Station 1, he doesn’t think he’s good enough for someone like gorgeous Lizzie.

Lizzie Breen is used to fighting—from her alpha male brothers, who try to smother her in the name of safety, to the life-threatening childhood illness she overcame. She knows what she and Mulligan feel for each other is a lot more than a fling, but she can’t get him to see that. The only gift Lizzie wants to give him this season is her love, but he’s not willing to accept it.

When Mulligan is trapped in the burning wreckage of a holiday store, a Christmas angel arrives to open his eyes. But is it too late? This Christmas, it’ll take an angel, a determined woman in love, and the entire Bachelor Firemen crew to make him believe … it is indeed a wonderful life.

I’ve always been a sucker for a good Christmas romance. I’ve also always been a sucker for an alpha hero with issues. Lucky me, because the final installment in Jennifer Bernard’s The Bachelor Firemen of San Gabriel series, It’s a Wonderful Fireman, offers both of those things.

Dean Mulligan had it pretty rough growing up, what with a druggie mom, an abusive stepfather, and less-than-stellar foster homes. To say that Christmas is not his favorite holiday would be an understatement.

Burning Love: 5 Reasons to Love Firefighters from Carr, Bernard, Shalvis, and More!

The Fireman Who Loved Me by Jennifer BernardOne of the highlights of my TV season this year is Chicago Fire. It follows the lives and loves of the sexy men and women who man Engine 51, Truck 81, Squad 3, Ambulance 61 and Battalion 25. It shows all the guts and glory involved in putting your life on the line for others every day, bringing your a-game to every event and being the kind of person who runs toward danger rather than away from it.

For those, like me, who feel an hour a week is nowhere near enough time to spend with these heroes there are some wonderful firefighter romances out there. If you’re not a fan, let me give you five reasons to become one.

They’re Comely

Looks aren’t everything—but they sure don’t hurt. The men of Jennifer Bernard’s Bachelor Firemen series don’t just put out fires for a living; they start them in the libidos of the women of San Gabriel. In The Fireman Who Loved Meheroine Melissa McGuire learns firsthand just how hot the boys in tan and yellow can be when she attends an event titled “Hot Men for a Great Cause: The San Gabriel County Firefighter and Law Enforcement Officer Fourth Annual Bachelor Auction.“ Initially, she’s opposed to the whole thing.

“Bidding on a man like some prize bull at a cattle auction? It’s ridiculous.”

Then she saw what it had to offer:

The beefcake parade of Southern California’s finest continued. All those powerful arms, those firm, flexing buttocks, those rock-hard stomachs. What about Vince from LA County Fire and Rescue, six feet seven inches of glorious sinewy coiled strength? Or Jose from Moorpark PD, with his laughing eyes and dance moves straight out of a strip show?. . . . .Number Five was perfect. And he knew it.
