Today I am so excited to welcome Annabeth Albert back to Joyfully Jay! Annabeth is here to share an exclusive cover reveal for High Heat, her upcoming story in the Hotshots series. She has also brought along a great giveaway. Please join me in giving her a big welcome!


Hey Joyfully Jay readers! I am so very excited to be here today to reveal the cover for HIGH HEAT, book 2 in my Hotshots series. If you haven’t read it yet, book one, BURN ZONE, is out now at all your favorite retailers. I loved writing BURN ZONE and capturing the smoke jumping universe. As a secondary character in BURN ZONE, Garrick was easily one of my favorite parts. He’s a fun guy, a veteran smoke jumper who embodies everything neat about the smoke jumping community with his love of sky diving and freewheeling attitude. He’s also a good friend to Linc and Jacob and vital part of their team. But what happens when that job, that community is threatened by an injury beyond his control?

Garrick’s book, HIGH HEAT, was a chance for me to delve deep into what happens when life doesn’t go according to plan. However, it’s not a high angst book at all. It’s fun and uplifting and super romantic. There’s a dog in need of a home, a kinky new younger neighbor, a hot tub, and shenanigans aplenty as Garrick and his co-hero Rain, discover what truly makes a home. As with the whole series, you can expect fire drama in the background and lots of adrenaline pumping, but also deep, meaningful feelings and warm, squishy endings.

And Garrick and Rain deserved a HIGH HEAT cover for all their sizzling chemistry and sexy feels! I’m so thrilled with what the Carina art team came up with! I love the covers for the whole series! And both HIGH HEAT and FEEL THE FIRE (book 3) are up for preorder at all retailers!

Smoke jumping is Garrick Nelson’s life. Nothing, not severe injuries nor the brutal physical therapy that follows, is going to stop him from getting back with his crew. But when a lost dog shows up on his front porch, he can’t turn her away, and he can’t take care of her on his own. Thankfully, help comes in the form of his new sexy, dog-loving neighbor. As they work together, trying to re-home their little princess, Garrick can’t resist his growing attraction for the other man, even though he knows this guy isn’t the staying type.

Rain Fisher doesn’t take anything too seriously. He dances through life, one adventure at a time, never settling in one place for too long. When his hot, conveniently buff, neighbor shows up on his doorstep, dog in tow, Rain’s determined to not just save the adorable puppy, but her reluctant owner as well. He never expects their flirtation might tempt him into stay put once and for all…

Danger lurks everywhere for Central Oregon’s fire crews, but the biggest risk of all might be losing their hearts. Don’t miss the Hotshots series from Annabeth Albert: Burn Zone, High Heat, and Feel the Fire.Also by Annabeth Albert:
