Jed and Ross Thatcher live charmed lives. They both do what they love, they both have anyone they want, and neither one of them is tied down. Then Jed meets Eli Marshall, and his nice quiet life as a pilot and hobby farm owner goes to hell in a handbasket. Eli is a smoke jumper, a man who parachutes into wildfires for a living. Too bad he's not ready to jump into Jed's bed as easily as he does a burning forest. Eli frustrates Jed as much as he arouses. Standoffish and prickly, Eli makes it hard to get to know him, but Jed is determined. And he always gets what he wants. Meanwhile, younger brother Ross is following in his big brother's footsteps in more ways than one. An Army paratrooper, Ross is making a name for himself at jump school. Though he's always been fond of women, it's Kevin O'Donnell who really makes him hot, makes Ross start thinking of forever type things as soon as they meet in the middle of a barroom brawl. Wild as the Colorado landscape they both love, Ross and Jed live hard, love harder, and fight often. Can they make it work with men as stubborn and independent as they are?
