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.
While on a call, Mulligan and his fire squad are called to a fire at a local shopping center. Mulligan is the last to get off the roof and gets trapped in the store after a fall. Mulligan has hallucinations where his girlfriend Lizzie visits him via Clarence (angel from It’s a Wonderful) style. But instead of an angel Lizzie is dressed as a naughty elf. But she not there to kiss Mulligan under the mistletoe, she’s there to show him that he is a good guy that deserves love.
Mulligan had a hard childhood with a mother that was in and out of rehab, a stepfather that beat him and moved from foster home to foster home. Mulligan has been told he’s no good for most of his life that he believes it and doesn’t think he is good for Lizzie and tells her to forget him and find someone that deserves her.
Lizzie is the little sister to one of fireman in Mulligan’s station. So they’ve been trying to keep their relationship a secret so they are not the gossip of the fire station. But when Mulligan is the one being rescued it all comes out that everyone but Mulligan and Lizzie knew the two were in love.
Jennifer Bernard brings you a fun and sexy holiday themed romance in IT’S A WONDERFUL FIREMAN that is sure to stoke your fire.
The sexy, smoldering “Bachelor Firemen” of San Gabriel were usually seen in turnouts, SGFD t-shirts, or without any shirts at all. But on a day shortly before Christmas, Station 1 was awash with Santa gear as the firefighters competed for a role only one could play. “Why shouldn’t a woman be Santa? We’ve never had a female Santa.” Sabina Jones wore a Santa hat that kept falling over one eye, probably because it belonged to her husband, Chief Roman, who had the build of a gladiator. “Only one person here has the belly to be Santa.” Double D patted his stomach, which always grew a few inches around the holidays, what with all the baked goods the citizens of San Gabriel kept dropping […]
