Sometimes the hottest fire burns with an old flame.

Sometimes the hottest fire burns with an old flame.
Trisha Carne has loved Brian Muller, of Muller’s Field vineyard, for as long as she can remember but the moment has never been right. Then an unexpected kiss on New Year’s Eve has Brian looking at her in a new way. Has she finally caught his attention?
Brian’s been doing it tough since his wife left him, and has retreated into the safety of bachelorhood. So he’s surprised to find this new fling with an old flame is starting to bring him back to life.
Until his ex-wife turns up in McLaren Vale and he’s thrown into a state of confusion.
Will Brian and Trisha let their pasts keep them from finding true happiness? Or will they have the courage to chase the flames that still smoulder between them?


I was strongly in need of something short and light-hearted, and Chasing the Flames thoroughly satisfied that need. I certainly got far more than I bargained for when I went into this book and the more I read, the less I wanted to put it down - yes, it was that engrossing! I’ll definitely be keeping my eye out for further books by Cheryl Adnams as I feel that she’s another Aussie author who’s going to leave her mark on the rural romance sub-genre and definitely one who’s earned her place on my bookshelf.

There’s one more Muller brother left so I assume there’s another book coming to give him his story and I definitely enjoyed this one enough to give that one a go. I liked the family dynamic between the brothers and their father and I really enjoyed the setting. I haven’t read many books set in South Australian wine country and I’d love to read more...

Just like the first book about the Muller boys, Chasing the Flames features a hot romance and hot boys, but this one also has some hot flames that need to be doused – quite literally. Seth from Bet On It is still my favorite character in the series, however Chasing the Flames was a wonderful romance that I thoroughly enjoyed. I can’t wait to see what Adnams has in store for the youngest brother, Andrew.

I LOVED IT! It was cute, funny, hot, dramatic at times and had its share of 'huh' moments! I would recommend it to anyone looking for a sassy and flirty romance novel!

This book has an assortment of moments: fun, adorable, quiet, cute, memorable, confusing, steamy, irritating, dramatic and there was this one moment that I just said WTF!

Odette Cortés, Goodreads

I am really enjoying this series, the family dynamics of the Mullers, the love interests of these boys and the Aussie humor that is throughout these books. This was real Aussie storyline with no alterations to make it more universal and I liked that because it captured the Aussie nature and spirit.

A great read. Enjoyed the characters & plot. Good follow-up to 'Bet On It'.
