As the chopper pilot for the elite Search and Rescue team Lifeline, Erin Tate is used to handling power. Calling the shots in the air is one thing—in the bedroom it leaves her cold. What she wants is a man strong enough to strip away her control.
Paramedic Timothy Dextor has a wildcard reputation, and the dark appetites to prove it. The only thing missing is a woman he can share them with. Landing a position on the Lifeline squad puts his old flame back within reach. He already knows what Erin needs, and this time he’s not letting her go.
But when an emergency throws Erin and Timothy together in ways they hadn’t anticipated, the stakes are raised—on the job and off. Now they’ll both discover the real meaning of control…and the risks that come from falling in love.
I have thoroughly enjoyed each of the books in this series and believe High Seduction is my favorite so far. There is action, suspense and some extremely sensual scenes; all combining to make a wonderful romantic suspense that was hard to put down.
Timothy Dextor is a highly recommended paramedic and has worked all over the world and in some very dangerous situations. Seven years ago he not only worked with Erin but they were in a serious relationship, but something happened and she walked away. Tim has applied for work at Adrenaline for one reason and that is to be with Erin again and this time forever.
Erin Tate is the helicopter pilot for Adrenaline the search and rescue team stationed out of Banff. She has no fear when it comes to flying and seems always in control but she is not as sure of herself with Tim. So they start from the beginning with their relationship, Tim is letting her set the pace and call the shots as he is still uncertain about why she left in such a panic.
As they explore their relationship, taking it one step at a time the team works together on a dangerous mission that tests all of them but the reward is a few days off. Erin and Tim visit Matt, a friend of his and are treated to luxury and some hot sexy nights with a bit of voyeurism. Their time is cut short when they need to get the helicopter back to Banff but little do they know that a side trip as good Samaritans gets them in more danger than any of them could imagine.
This is such a good addition to the story, the adventures are exciting, the pace is fast and the romance is hot with a capital H. I have liked Erin from the beginning, she is rough around the edges and searches for that adrenaline high just as the others do but she seems to be missing something, you can see it as she visits the local Club but never ventures upstairs to play. Tim is the perfect hero; he is not too pushy and lets her set the pace with their relationship as he wants her back in his life so much. The chemistry is hot and the scenes of the two together steam up the pages, there even is some ménage thrown in for excitement.
I was a bit amazed that as Tim is back in town, even after seven years away from her they immediately start seeing each other, albeit they take it slow. They do have a small set back as they must deal with the elephant in the room, the reason she left years ago but with Matt’s help, they work through it.
I enjoyed the premise of the story, I think each book is getting more exciting and suspenseful, very enjoyable. I like how previous characters are featured in this book, we get to see what they are up to and the progression of their relationships, it is also fun to meet new and interesting people such as Matt and I am looking forward to seeing more of him in future stories. The book can easily be read as a standalone as they are each their own stories. All in all a wonderful romance filled with suspense, danger and some great hot sex.
I give High Seduction by Vivian Arend 4 stars!
