Former pararescue jumper Orion Starr is haunted by the memory of a rescue gone wrong. He may be living alone in Alaska now, but the pain of his failure–and his injuries–has followed him there from Afghanistan. He has no desire to join Hamilton Jones’s elite rescue team, but he also can’t shirk his duty when the call comes in to rescue three lost climbers on Denali.
Former CIA profiler and psychiatrist Jenny Calhoun’s yearly extreme challenge with her best friends is her only escape from the guilt that has sunk its claws into her. As a consultant during a top-secret mission to root out the Taliban, she green-lighted an operation that ended in ambush and lives lost. When her cathartic climb on Denali turns deadly, she’ll be forced to trust her life and the lives of her friends to the most dangerous of heroes–the man she nearly killed.
Her skills and his experience are exactly what’s needed to prevent another tragedy–but in order to truly set Orion free from his painful past, Jenny will have to reveal hers. They’ll have to put their wounds behind them to survive, but at what cost?
Leap into action with this high-octane, breakneck new series from bestselling author Susan May Warren.

Breathtaking Alaskan scenery, extreme mountain climbing, perilous conditions and intense emotions-all wrapped up in a suspenseful romance that will keep you hanging on the edge of your seat. It’s a story of rescue – both emotionally and physically. The lead female character, Jenny Calhoun, is a former CIA profiler and psychiatrist. She is intelligent, fearless and determined to accomplish her goal of climbing Denali. Orion Starr, a pararescue jumper and SEAL, haunted by a rescue mission that ended with death. Both filled with determination, one to climb a mountain and the other to stay far away from mountain adventures. The plot was gripping from the first chapter. With the expressive climbing scenes, no need to go on a mountain climbing expedition because you will feel as if you are on the mountain watching the scenes unfold. Hold on tight, because just when you think you can take a breath, the next paragraph will have you holding your breath all over again. After reading this first Global Search and Rescue book, I’m adding another series to my TBR list. This year is starting off with several new series that will have me waiting impatiently for the next read. Buy Now: Amazon Kindle
