FIRST TIME IN PRINT

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…

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
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. Agent: Kimberly Whalen, Trident Media Group. (Sept.)

Meet the Author

Vivian Arend in one word: Adventurous. In a sentence: Willing to try just about anything once. That wide-eyed attitude has taken her around North America, through parts of Europe, and into Central and South America, often with no running water.

Her optimistic outlook also meant that when challenged to write a book, she gave it a shot, and discovered creating worlds to play in was nearly as addictive as traveling the real one. Now a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of both contemporary and paranormal stories, inlcuding the Adrenaline Search & Rescue series, Vivian continues to explore, write, and otherwise keep herself well entertained

## I enjoyed this book for the most part. Although the hero had fantastic chemistry with the heroine, he was hard to like at first. Telling the heroine that it's just sex between them and she better not think they would end up being married or having kids may have been honest, but he certainly could've been a tad more tactful. Jeez, arrogant much? But slowly he grew on me. I loved how the author let these two laugh and tease a lot. The final rescue was drawn out too long for my taste so I had to start skimming at that point. Ergo 4 stars. Otherwise good read.

The whole story start to finish is suspensful. The fact it can be read as part of the series or a stand alone is great but please don't skip "High Risk". The only issue I have with the book is thanksgiving is in november not october and is on a Thursday not a Sunday. You can't go wrong with any of her books they are all great. Please spend the money buy the book and let her take you away into the wonderful world she created just for us.

~Reviewed by FRANCESCA & posted at Under the Covers Book Blog I loved the concept of this series when I read the first book, HIGH But I was anxiously awaiting to read about this couple. Alisha and Devon were always bickering and you could just tell once they gave in to their desires they would sizzle. And sizzle they did! HIGH PASSION is full of adrenaline and chemistry. Alisha and Devon were melting the pages (and me!) but also melting my heart. This book was truly perfect! Everything I wanted for them and from them. The story kept me on my toes and turning the pages. Alisha has a secret. Who she is and where she comes from. And that all catches up with her in HIGH PASSION. She has to deal with her sense of inadequacy that her father always leaves her with because she’s not living up to the society standards he wants for her. Instead she’s risking her life climbing and rescuing people, living in a small apartment in a small town. Devon has decided it’s time that he confronts the passion they’ve had between them. It was long overdue. Little did he know it’s always been more than that. Alisha challenges him to be better, and he’s been rising to that challenge for years. They both admire each other and drive each other forward. I enjoyed the suspense element in this book. It wasn’t over the top but kept things interesting with just the right amount of romance and suspense. HIGH PASSION was one of my recommended reads from what I read last month and I highly encourage you to take a look. One of my favorite Vivian Arend books!
