Radiant Burn by Laura Harner is the fifth part of the Fighting Fire portion of the pulp friction 2014 serial. This is only part of the whole story and should be read with the understanding that you need to have read what came before. This is the final individual installment before the joint Pulp Friction 2014 finale.

Living with the man he loves and helping to raise his two children isn’t something Scott McGregor can be sure he deserves—at least not until he learns the truth behind the nightmares. Uncertain whether the knowledge will fan the flames or finally bring the fire under control, Scott heads to Phoenix, only to realize time and distance may not have been enough to prepare him for what he discovers at the home of the only other firefighter to survive the Prescott blaze.
For Rob Hammond, the last two months have been a preview into heaven. With his children home, and Scott in his bed, he finally has the family he’s always dreamed of. All he has to do now is help Scott through the last of the shadows left from his close encounter with death. If Rob can keep everything on an even keel, Scott will conquer the PTSD demons that haunt him and finally get the happily ever after he deserves.
Twelve years ago, nothing could have prevented their relationship from imploding, but as each of their self-imposed barriers falls away, the battle lines shift, and Scott and Rob need each other as never before as they fight to make Mountain Shadows a home for their family.
One man is certain things will work out—the other is afraid they can’t. Only one of them can be right.
Radiant Burn is the final installment in the Fighting Fire portion of Pulp Friction 2014 and it is written as such. Things are finally starting to come to the end and closure is being achieved. Scott finally talks to Danny and learns some startling things about Danny’s life that help him move on with his own. Robby has already decided where he wants his life to go and at the end of this novella, he lets Scott know in no uncertain terms where he sees their future. We also learn more about Jillian and Carl. I did not see that coming and there has to be more to that story!
Finally, the plot of “who done it?” is also moving towards closure. This plot had been on the backburner while Scott and Robby’s relationship grew, but it is back and raring to go! This fire will not be forgotten and the culprit is on the verge of being discovered, or is he/she? The suspense is well done and this is a nice set up for the finale.
I am very sad that this novella means Pulp Friction 2014 is coming to an end. It was a great serial and these authors are so talented. I cannot wait for the reminder for round five and for the Finale. I am excited to find out how it all ends!
