When Seattle is struck by a devastating earthquake, technical rescue firefighter Jamie Caldwell must save his estranged wife and daughter from the wreckage of a collapsed building. He’s defied the odds hundreds of times, but will his luck finally run out for good?

I was on the edge of my seat reading this novella. I am no wimp and I do love a good suspense story, but this one topped it. Being a mother, all I had to do was place myself in this circumstance and ask what would I feel, what would I do? Easy! I would have reacted the same way as Erika.

As a father and firefighter, Jaime is everything you can hope for in a man. His only flaw appears to be his passiveness and apparent lack of forcefulness when dealing with his wife. He loves her, and their daughter, dearly. He is a strong man, physically and emotionally, but is reluctant to force his wishes on his wife, so gives her control over anything they disagree on.

Searching first for his wife in the rubble and then trying to save his daughter from a certain death, Jaime is a hero. I ended up admiring his patient approach to this disaster and his heroic effort to save the two people more precious than his life. Great prequel to the Six-Alarm Sexy Series!
