Northern Escape

Northern Rescue Book 1

Brielle Ives prefers dogs to people, and who could blame her? Her sled dogs are loyal to a fault, trust her implicitly, and couldn’t care less about the scars that mar her face. The only human who’s never disappointed her is her mentor, Dr. William Hunter. When his plane goes missing in the remote Alaskan wilderness, Bree will do anything to find him . . . even if it means turning to a frustrating, irresponsible, and too-sexy-for-his-own-good California boy for help.

When Ellis Hunter enlisted in the Army at eighteen, he put Alaska—and his womanizing drunk of a father—in his rearview mirror. He promised himself he’d never return, but even he can’t resist Bree’s panicked plea for help. If she’s hell-bent on trekking into the bush to find his father, then he’s determined to go with her. But Ellis isn’t the only one shadowing Bree’s rescue attempt…

When the search for answers leaves Ellis and Bree trapped together in the wilds of Alaska, they’ll have to put aside their differences—and an attraction hot enough to melt glaciers—to survive the elements. Because someone dangerous lurks in that icy wilderness—a killer desperate to keep Dr. William Hunter’s secrets buried deep in the snow.

Northern Deception

Northern Rescue Book 2

Nate Hunter simply wants to be left alone to study animal diseases in his lab, but the disappearance of his father in the Alaskan bush makes that an impossibility. His oldest brother nearly died during the first search and rescue attempt, and now his younger brother is hiding something. When Nate finds coordinates tucked away in his dad’s papers, he decides to take the investigation into his own hands to protect his family.

State trooper Freya Ashby already has a lot on her plate when she and her search and rescue K9, Xena, are sent to the site of a massive avalanche. Her mother is sick, her sister is going through a nasty divorce, and she’s the lead investigator into the frustrating disappearance of Dr. William Hunter. The last thing she needs is a complication, and Nate, her last one-night-stand, is definitely that… especially after she finds him buried in the snow with a dead man.

Is soft-spoken, shy, and insanely sexy Dr. Nathaniel Hunter a killer? Or the next target?
