High Passion

Vivian Arend. Berkley, $7.99 mass market (336p) ISBN 978-0-425-26334-1
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.
