Sourcebooks Casablanca July 2011
Pararescueman Wade Rocha jumps from a helicopter in a blizzard to save a climber stranded on an Aleutian Island. He lands upon Sunny Foster who insists she doesn't need to be rescued. Unbeknown to the both of them, Sunny is not the one to be rescued. She just happened to be there at the time. Sunny is a guide in her own right and is is quite capable of taking care of herself. Wade, on the other hand, has no intentions of leaving her to her own devices.
Sunny is determined to lose Wade because she has secrets she is hiding and has no intentions of him finding out about them. Sometimes, what you want is not always what you get. Despite an attraction crackling just below the surface, Sunny attempts to break out on her own only to be blind sided by Wade. They stumble upon the remains of a horrific crime. In the process, they find out the local police cannot be trusted. As their passion grows for each other, they become more and more tangled in a web of lies and deceit.
This is the first book in the Elite Force series by Catherine Mann. It is a wonderful action packed adventure/love story set in the wilds of Alaska. It is fast paced and keeps you on the edge until the end. Our hero is a real alpha male and the female is a true alpha female. There comes a time when she doesn't mind a bit of rescuing especially when she is rewarded with her heroes kisses. It is a story of love, devotion, deceit, and betrayal. If you are a lover of romance and fast action, you can't go wrong with this book. Despite the romance and passion, I think men would enjoy the suspense in the story also. I for one will have my eye out for book 2, Hot Zone.
