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…

As the chopper pilot for the elite Lifeline search-and-rescue team, Erin Tate is used to handling power. Calling the shots in the air is one thing—in the bedroom it leaves her cold. What she wants is a man strong enough to strip away her control.

Paramedic Timothy Dextor has a wild card reputation, and the dark appetites to prove it. The only thing missing is a woman he can share them with. Landing a position on the Lifeline squad puts his old flame back within reach. He already knows what Erin needs, and this time he’s not letting her go.

But when an emergency throws Erin and Timothy together in unanticipated ways, the stakes are raised—on the job and off. Now they’ll both discover the real meaning of control…and the risks that come from falling in love.

About 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, Vivian continues to explore, write, and otherwise keep herself well entertained. High Seduction is the third book in her Adrenaline Search&Rescue series which also includes High Passion and High Risk.

The woman lea me into a room full of strange things made of leather and metal. I wonder if those are torture devices of some kind but I knew one thing for sure. I neded to get out of here. I needed to get out of here so I could run free and wild, with the wind rushing through my mane. <p> The woman took something off of the wall sh made me open my mouth and she put it into my mouth the part he had put in my nouth was a metal bar. I gagged at the bitter taste of the metal. I didnt like that and thr woman seemed to notice it. She said something a calm soothing tone and in return, I allowed the metal ar to remain in my mouth. Then she reached around my head a fastened something I couldnt see. It felt so uncomfortable but most of all it felt heavy. I hated the feeling, it mad it se very hard to just lift my head. <p> To my releif, she took it off and lead me back to the stall I had been in before. As I trotted there, I noticed in the stall to the right of mine was a strange stallion, he had a strong, silvery olored body and something about his grey eyes were unsettling. <p> After the woman left me in the stall I realized something, the stallion in the stall right of mine, he was no ordknary horse, he was a horse from the Moon Herd. <p> Please coment. I hope you like it!! <p> ~Jade

Vivian Arend continues her fast paced romance series, set in the Canadian mountains of Banff, Alberta. High Seduction is the third book in the Adrenaline Search and Rescue series, which will have readers holding their breath and reaching for a cold drink by turns. Filled with all the passion and high stakes rescues that readers can handle, this book hints at darker more primal needs. A helicopter pilot and a paramedic have a past that needs some closure, but circumstances tempt fate and put them in line to start over with a second chance at love.  What I liked: Tim and Erin are not unacquainted. In fact they used to be in a relationship. Erin runs away and ends up with the Adrenaline Search and Rescue team as their helicopter pilot. Now several years late Tim shows up as a candidate for the paramedic opening on the team. But it's clear that he has one mission in mind: win Erin back! Readers don't have to guess at the underlying agendas with this one, it's pretty straight forward and I found that refreshing. Arend doesn't beat around a bush and that writing attitude carries over into all aspects of this book. It's very open and brash in some cases. I found that intriguing and fun. Erin has created a life for herself here. She is brassy and strong and has all the necessary passion to pull off working in this high risk, high reward career. She comes off as resilient, resourceful and ready... ready for life and ready for love. Tim is a no nonsense kind of guy. In control and on top of his game. He's a darn good paramedic and he knows it. I loved the passion both of these characters exhibited in every aspect of their lives. That's the kind of person it takes to work in that kind of field, and it's the kind of person it takes to make the BDSM world work in their sexual life. These two characters had zeal to spare and Arend does a fantastic job with their characters. The addition of Tim's friend Matt, also brings out a different side to Tim and Erin's relationship. Adding an element of surprise and suspense to the reading of this novel that had little to do with rescuing. It amped up the sexual side of things and put Erin's trust in Tim to the breaking point. I think readers will find this secondary character very interesting. I for one hope the next book features Matt. After reading about him here, readers will only want more. Arend shows just how important characters other than the main couple are to moving the story forward and giving it new and interesting directions.  What I didn't like: I thought Erin and Tim had amazing chemistry and I thought the use of a past history between them was a great idea to boost the time it took them to get back together, but I did have a little issue with how quickly Erin was able to put her complete trust in Tim. She left him the first time for a reason. She got scared. He did some things that fractured her trust in him and I thought they needed a little more build up to the ultimate test of their trust in each other. A little too fast, but not an ender for how much I liked the book. Bottom Line: My first experience with this author was a very enjoyable one. I look forward to reading her other books. I felt like she did an amazing job with both the search and rescue elements of this story and the sexual elements. It was hard to decide which was written better. Suffice it to say this was a hot one in more ways than one.

Disappointing - more sex than plot. Difficult to relate to main characters and their farfetched romance.

I didn't like this book very well. The main characters weren't very likeable, and the romance plot was unbelievable. I didn't get it. The secondary plot was intriguing and a good fit for the characters. I have read many books written by Ms. Arends, and this is definitely my least favorite. I wouldn't recommend it. PSP

Rescues &amp; Romance: This book focuses on Erin Tate &amp; Tim Dexter. She is a helicopter pilot for Lifeline Search And Rescue and he is a SAR Paramedic. Tim arrives in Banff to try to get her back and fix what went wrong years ago between them. She decides to greet him with her boot. While things start to heat up between them, danger comes their way... add in some action, suspense and some help from his friend Matt and see an enjoyable read come to life. I really enjoyed the secondary characters. Looking forward to more books from this author.

The third book on the Adrenaline &amp; Rescue series from [author:Vivian Arend|2932249] Is always nice to get back to familiar characters. But if you have not read the previous books on this series, this series is a little more on the suspense romance category. But with a little more romance than suspense in it, which is okay by me. :) In this install of the series, we have Erin Lifeline chopper pilot. She is always in control, or so it seems. But we soon find out our heroine, likes to be controlled, and by no other than by the new paramedic of Lifeline Tim, who also happens to be Erin's long time ago love interest. As the couple strat to work out their differences, things happen to take then into a tail spin. When things seem to be working out between them, events that happened in the past that drove the couple in separate directions resurface. But the pair been a little older and wiser lovers, seem willing to work out things to get their happily ever after. this book contains, some exhibitionism, voyeurism, M/F/M and lots of hot encounters in cold weather.
