My Thoughts:

Rescue Heat is an enjoyable Australian romance set in the north of Queensland. Dr Brigid Adair is a doctor with the Cairns helicopter rescue service, a job she loves for the unique professional challenges it presents every day. When Matt Roberts, an ex US Army medic, joins the crew, Brigid is suddenly faced with a very personal challenge – denying her attraction to her new wealthy, sexy and handsome partner.

Rescue Heat starts strongly as Brigid is lowered to treat an ill diver on a deep sea platform and I enjoyed learning a little about the varied role of rescue helicopter teams who deal with urgent life and death situations every day, from searches at sea to assisting with major car accidents. It seemed a shame though that the author didn’t really take advantage of the dangers inherent in her protagonists professions to inject more action into the story. I was hoping for a little more edge that would exploit the unique setting and the potential for drama.

I really liked the way in which Brigid is portrayed as a confident and competent woman and doctor, she is a strong and likeable character. Matt is the more vulnerable of the two protagonists, still hurt by his ex girlfriend’s recent betrayal and adjusting to civilian life after years serving in war zones. Hamilton develops the chemistry between the pair nicely and the intimate scenes are (ok, I am never sure exactly how to describe these scenes) arousing(?), well written anyway.

Rescue Heat is a pleasant, quick read that should satisfy fans of contemporary romance set in an exotic locale.
