Introducing book #4 in the Silver Creek series ~ Available Summer 2016

Kelly Jones is an Apache combat pilot with no place to go except up. She lives to fly and flies to live. When she leaves the military, she discovers her new calling in the mountains of Colorado. The Silver Creek search and rescue team is looking for helicopter pilots and she feels certain she’s the woman for the job. 

Roan Phillips, head pilot for the area’s SAR team, is a stickler when it comes to performance and refuses to sign her off to fly with them. She’s too brash–too dangerous–to fly with the precision needed by an SAR pilot.

But when an avalanche sweeps through a group of heli-skiers, stranding them in high country as a storm approaches, he’s faced with a difficult decision. These particular skiers are his personal friends and one of them is missing.

Kelly insists she’s capable of flying rescue, and with time running out, Roan has no choice but to include her in the mission. It’s a choice he quickly second-guesses as the treachery of mountain flying becomes all too real and one emergency becomes two.

Not Without You (Silver Creek Series) by Dianne Venetta

Grad student, Lisa Richardson, scours the high country in search of her beloved boreal toad. The amphibian is in danger of extinction, a fate she is determined to change. Single-minded in her focus, Lisa doesn’t realize that she’s being followed by a mysterious stranger.

Enter McIntyre Walsh. Ex-marine with a heart of gold, this man lives and breathes duty. Protection. Content with his self-exile on a mountaintop in Colorado, he inadvertently witnesses a female hiker in danger, a situation he cannot ignore yet is unable to rectify. When their paths cross, Lisa and Walsh refuse to stray from their avowed goals and carry on–despite the other.

It isn’t until a killer ramps up his game that both are forced to relent. Battling the rugged terrain of the Rocky Mountains and an undeniable attraction between them, Lisa and Walsh must work together against the odds if they intend to get off the mountain alive.

And it’s easy to enter. Simply choose from one of the Rafflecopter options below and your name will be added to the mix.
