Ice rescue diver Derek Warner never meant to be a hero. But when two little girls go missing, he’s the first in line to bring them home-even if that means scouring the wilderness with the woman he once loved and lost, Artemis Rey.

Artemis has never stopped wanting Derek. Now, racing to find the girls before it’s too late, minutes turn to hours. Night falls. Old flames rekindle. And a danger grows in the darkest wilderness that may be more than even the Search and Rescue brotherhood can hope to face.

While finishing up this author’s Rocky Mountain K9 Unit series and looking for more to read by her, I came across this story for free on Amazon.  It’s a short story to introduce readers to the Search and Rescue series. I’ve had mixed results with other authors and their .5 books, but I’ve fallen in love with this author and it was free so, why the heck not?

The chemistry between Derek and Artemis aka Artie is obvious from the beginning.  They have a history that unfolds for the reader as the story progresses.  We also get to see what they’ve been up to since they parted ways years ago and how the timing is right for them to be together.

For such a short book, there were tons of warm-fuzzies.  It gives me high hopes for the rest of this series, which I’m sure will also include a lot of suspense if the things this couple comes across in this story are any indication.
