Is it hot in here or is someone reading Firefighter's Doorstep Baby by Barbara McMahon?

Where: Q-train
Who was reading: A vertically challenged woman who was jacketed in leather and hatted in canvas.
In a Nutshell: Firefighter's Doorstep Baby chronicles the adventures of Cristiano, a flame-dousing hunk with an injury that's thrown him out of the action—but not for long. His lake-side convalescence takes a turn for the titillating when he meets sassy singleton Mariella and her infernally cute baby Dante.
Not to be confused with Firefighter's Doorstop Baby. . . in which a neglectful couple uses their baby to prop various doors open while they go at it.
Now on to the juicy stuff: "A loud smack of the Jet Ski on the water as it bounced over its own wake had her drawn again to the man. At this distance she could only see the dark hair and broad shoulders as he sat astride the machine. He seemed fearless as the engine roared louder and he went even faster. She could imagine herself flying along, the wind blowing all cares away." (Read more)


  1. LOL! I think Firefighter's Doorstop Baby should also be written. A fiesty social worker could be the main character.

  2. Ha! I'd enjoy reading about the psychological effects on the baby once it reaches adolescence as well.

  3. I'm fairly certain that sinners are forced to read this book as punishment in the third circle of Hell in Dante's Inferno.

  4. I don't know, Sean. Are sinners allowed to read? I reckon they'd have to sit through some sort of Lifetime adaptation.

  5. Lifetime adaptation - LOL.

    Now you've given me the shivers- a bookless hell with only crappy TV? No thanks!
