LIFELINE: an elite search-and-rescue squad based out of Banff, Alberta. Specializing in high-risk rescue missions, this team goes wherever the job takes them…
Alisha Bailey left a life of privilege for the dangerous but thrilling world of search and rescue. Denying the lure of attraction to her teammate is another sacrifice she’s made to prove to everyone—including her family—that she’s more than a pretty face or a business commodity.
Since their training days, Devon Leblanc has used the competitive fire between them to hide his fascination with the petite beauty. When a natural disaster forces their rivalry aside, heated passion finally flares between them. Sexual pleasure slowly gives way to a new appreciation for each other’s skills—on the field and in the bedroom.
But when unexplained accidents begin happening to the Lifeline team, their newfound unity may be their only hope for survival…
Arend crafts an erotically sweet and heart-racing adventure tale filled with search-and-rescue lore to follow High Risk. Petite beauty Alisha Bailey continually proves her value to her high-risk search-and-rescue team. She hides her attraction to "ex-swimmer jock" Devon Leblanc, not wanting to be another notch on his bedpost. Teamed together, Alisha and Devon's "I have your back" relationship has Devon wondering whether the passion Alisha brings to her work might extend to the bedroom, and an unexpected reaction during a mission encourages the duo to start exploring the thrills of blending sensuality with deep emotions. When Alisha spurns a suitor who wants her inheritance and his enraged demands become more aggressive and dangerous, she needs Devon at her back more than ever. Arend whips up an exhilarating blend of sharp action, masterful pacing, enthralling camaraderie, vibrant secondary characters, and sensuous love scenes. Romantic suspense fans will be well satisfied.
