Ready for digital pre-order! HIGH RISK

By Vivian Arend

Yeah!!! So I now have a lovely cover, cover copy, and you can pre-order HIGH RISK in mass market paperback OR digital now!

So… what can I tell you about the story? If you like my contemporary cowboys–Six Pack Ranch– you’ll find a similar voice here. Instead of the Coleman clan there is the Lifeline Search and Rescue team–a band of friends who work together and thrive on high adventure situations. As well as the heroine/hero there are four-five other characters you’ll get to know in the book, including…damn, I want to tell you plot stuff, but I need to wait on that. 😀

Marcus is probably the sexiest hero I’ve ever written, and one of the most tortured. (Yeah, tortured heroes!) Becki is one of those people who you’d love as a friend, because you KNOW she’ll stand up for you through anything, plus she’ll kick your butt when it needs it. I think Becki and Jaxi would be good friends, other than Jaxi doesn’t want to leave the ranch, and Becki left the family farm in Saskatchewan to work in the mountains of Yellowstone and Banff.

High Risk is the longest novel I’ve written to date. Not sure how it happened, but it’s the equivalent of 3 wolfie books, or both Xtreme Adventure books!


As soon as I’m done edits I’ll be able to start sneaking you more information about the story and the hero/heroine. I hope you’ll become as excited as I am to meet the team and watch Becki and Marcus find their HEA.


High Risk
Adrenaline, Book 1

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…

Rebecca James was once revered for her devil-may-care attitude and backcountry survival skills. But ever since she lost her partner in a fatal accident, patches of her memory have been missing. And until she can recall those final, tragic moments before the accident, she can’t move on.

Since Marcus Landers was permanently injured during a mission, all his energies have been focused on his Lifeline team. When Becki—whom he had an intense affair with seven years ago—arrives in Banff, he’s inspired to reignite the spark they once had. Their mutual ardor slowly awakens Becki’s dormant, haunting memories.

New truths surface until Becki must at last confront her greatest fear. Remembering the past might mean a future without the man she loves…

    blah on geo-restrictions. (It’s listed as $3 more for me on my Canadian site than the US one, so, dude…I HEAR you.)

    Long wolfie book–well, Diamond Dust just clocked out at 70K, the longest to date of the Takhini Wolves.
