A Little Bit Like Love by Ann Grech
A politician who’s determined to save the forest. A property developer who wants to cut it down. Two men, a grudge and the bushland standing between them. The unstoppable inferno in the distance draws closer, threatening their piece of paradise. As it razes everything in its path, will these two enemies survive the night? Can they find something a little bit like love together in the midst of disaster?
High Alert by Becca Seymour
When fire threatens Ross’s parents’ home, he’s thrust into a situation that brings him close to danger as well as into the arms of his brother’s best friend, Dan. This is hardly the time to be chasing first kisses or finally acting on a crush he’s had seemingly forever. But Dan doesn’t seem to mind.
Dan’s protective instincts kick in whenever he thinks Ross is at risk. While that’s nothing new, he’s fully aware that his feelings for the younger librarian go beyond friendship. With fire creeping their way and exhaustion chasing his heels, admitting his feelings to Ross shouldn’t be at the centre of his thoughts. But when the stakes are high and emotions are running wild, sometimes you just have to show your hand and go all in.
Safe in His Arms by Bronwyn Heeley
I can’t say things with Eddie and me weren’t going to end up this way when we first met volunteering to fight fires up the coast. But he may just be everything I’ve been searching for.
Every Picture Tells a Story by LJ Harris
It had been eight months since the first spark of the Australian bushfires had been lit, cutting a relentless path through millions of hectares of land. Seven days since firefighter Jack Sweeney had been able to return to his family home on the south coast of New South Wales to rest his weary bones. Exactly two hours, eight minutes, and sixteen seconds since he’d met a man named Hunter.
Hunter Everett, all-around good guy and photojournalist for an online Eco magazine, had been travelling throughout Australia to document the devastation of the country’s most unprecedented fires in living memory. Dozens of brave, beautiful souls lost. Homes, hearts, and livelihoods razed to the ground. A billion animals wiped out. And one naughty dog by the name of Buddy, who would not only become Hunter’s friend, but change his destiny for good.
Flying Embers by LJ Hayward
Helicopter tour pilot, Logan Star, has flown over the Blue Mountains thousands of times. He’s seen them in sunshine and rain, in vibrant colour and drought. He’s never seen them burn like this before, though. As fire engulfs the land, Logan must race to rescue the man he loves—and lost—from the danger of flying embers.
New Year’s Day by Lisa Henry
Elliott Krause expected to be bored out of his mind these school holidays. But that changes in a heartbeat when a monstrous bushfire threatens Mallacoota. Suddenly Elliott and his family are in danger, and they’re not the only ones. When Elliott sees the boy with the horse, he’s compelled to help him. If Elliott and Sam can just make it through the day, they may both discover that a friendship forged in fire can bloom into something more.
After the Blaze by Louisa Masters
Friendship can be everything… until it’s not enough.
Charlie Madden left his city life behind to help his great-aunt run a quilting shop in rural Lakes Entrance. He loves his quieter new life… almost as much as he loves Archie Tucker.
Archie, his closest friend in town and everybody’s favourite person, has no idea how Charlie feels, and Charlie’s not willing to risk their friendship by making a move. He can be content to love from afar as long as Archie’s still in his life.
But then bushfires sweep the region, and CFA volunteer Archie is called out to battle the blaze… and as Gippsland burns, Charlie realizes that some things are worth the risk.
Smoke and Ash by Meg Bawden
Cameron hates the smell of smoke, it reminds him of summer and the days his husband comes home after fighting a bushfire as a RFS volunteer. There’s never been bushfires like this though and Cameron’s anxiety of losing Graham is worse than ever. He’d never stop Graham from doing what he does best, but staying at home and wondering if his husband will return to him at the end of the day will never get any easier. When Australia’s worst fires rage and threatens their own home, it’s Graham’s turn to worry. Can Cam get out in time?
Wild Heat by Naomi Aoki
Bushfires steal so much from people, but Lyam refuses to be one of their victims. His family spent generations building the Wildlife Park, providing a home for both native and exotic animals and he refuses to let the approaching bushfire steal it away from him. He’d do anything to protect it and the animals who rely on him.
Even if that means risking his own life to do it.
But as the fire races toward the park, it’s not just Lyam taking risks. Jordan fears for his friend and can’t let him go play hero without knowing of his feelings for him. He takes a risk that their friendship will survive the revelation and leaving Lyam with a choice.
Facing the Heat by Nic Starr
Trent Masterton is no stranger to loss, but it now looks as if his dreams are coming true. Callum, a man he thought was out of reach, takes a starring role in his life, and suddenly the future looks bright. But a raging bushfire has other ideas, and once again Trent is faced with losing everything he holds dear—his home, his business, his new-found love. In the devastation that follows the fire, Callum holds Trent together, giving him the strength and determination to rebuild his life. However, it looks like the fire might have the last say and be the thing that tears them apart.
When Sparks Fly by TA Bellmond
Dace Daniels is Australia’s favourite evening news reporter. His newest assignment is to seek out and interview bushfire victims. When Dace comes across a man sobbing amid his fire-devastated property, his immediate instinct is to comfort rather than interview. The haven Brodie created when he escaped from his past has been incinerated. When his identity is discovered by a reporter, he fears things may go from bad to worse. But the reporter is beautiful and kind and offers Brodie a safe place to stay. Brodie accepts the man’s kindness, but will it come with a price?
Cinders by Zoe Piper
Kiwi firefighter Paul 'Chalky' White, doesn't hesitate to volunteer when fires decimate the Australian bush. He expects to find heartache and devastation. What he doesn’t expect to find is a tiny abandoned kitten and a sexy vet in the middle of nowhere.
Dr Hayden Wheeler only has a few minutes with the soot-stained firefighter and is left with a memory of piercing blue eyes and regret for not getting his number.
A chance encounter in Auckland months later has the two men reuniting. Will they be able to build something on the embers of their first meeting or will it all turn to ash?
Cinders is a 10,500 short story set in the Kiwi Guys world.
