Master mechanic Denise Conroy - with a reputation for being as steel-clad as the aircraft she keeps aloft - shuns useless flyboys who don't know one end of a wrench from the other. Firehawk pilot Vern Taylor - known for unstoppable charm and a complete lack of mechanical skills - proves his talent for out-of-the-box thinking with every flight. He's a survivor and a natural-born heli-aviation firefighter. When Denise and Vern crash together in the Central American jungle with wildfire on one side and a full-fledged military coup on the other, their newly forged partnership is tested to the max. They have each other, but not even their formidable skills combined can protect Denise and Vern from the conflagration sweeping the jungle...and their hearts.
