Danger, destiny, and romance on the river.
Megan Maxwell is perfectly content with her life just as it is. As Vice President of World News Central, she has power, prestige, money, connections, and no lack of willing bed partners, so it takes several shots of tequila and a good bit of cajoling to convince her to join her friends on a whitewater kayak trip in northern Alaska. But the grandeur of the Last Great Frontier and the unexpected allure of her tour guide give her a whole new perspective on what is really important.
Biology professor and adventure guide Chaz Herrick believes she can only find happiness in the wilderness of her adopted home state, and she expects that when she finally falls in love, it will be with someone very much like herself. When she finds herself falling hard for a big city workaholic who seems to invite disaster at every turn, it’s not just rough water that has her worried.

There are times when a picture doesn't just say it all - it changes everything.
Isabel Sterling isn't even aware she has been entered in the Sophisticated Women 'Watch Your Dreams Come True' contest, so it comes as a complete surprise to learn she has won not only a makeover she doesn't want or need, but also the chance to appear on the cover of a national magazine and an all expense paid trip for two to exotic locales.
Photographer Natasha Kashnikova is a cynical celebrity playgirl who is barreling toward full, midlife-crisis mode when she agrees to take on the Sophisticated Women shoot as a favor for a friend. Kash is convinced that every woman who shows an interest in her has ulterior motives, so love is not on her agenda—and certainly not with some naive romantic during an assignment from Hell.

Nothing is easy about life above the Arctic Circle. Except, perhaps, falling in love.
Bryson Faulkner embraces the challenges that come with making a home in one of the most beautiful but unforgiving places on earth: the isolation of the endless wilderness, the harsh and unpredictable climate, the predators that lurk about her remote cabin, and even the most perilous dangers of all--those that await her when she takes to the skies as one of Alaska's most daring bush pilots. The only thing missing is a special woman to share it all with, but she's resigned herself to the fact that few people can thrive in such an extreme environment.
Everything Karla Edwards thought she knew gets called into question when a series of events turns her comfortable and well-ordered life on its ear. Her partner leaves her, her mother dies, and Karla learns she has a sister in Alaska she never knew. She takes a leave of absence from her job as an ER nurse in Atlanta and heads to the far north, seeking answers and adventure. She finds all that and more when she crosses paths with a sexy bush pilot who opens her eyes to new possibilities. But can she open her heart as well and learn to trust again?

No risk is too high. No adventure too daunting.
Emery Lawson reinvents herself after another near-death experience prompts a thorough reevaluation of her priorities. Empowered to live a life of no regrets, she casts aside all that is familiar to face her fears and chase her dreams. But as she heads for the wilds of Alaska, romance is definitely not on her agenda, because she’s convinced she’s incapable of falling in love.
Pascha Dunn has learned to expect the unexpected, in her job with an Adventure Outfitter in the remote Alaskan interior. Adaptability is essential in such a savage and unforgiving landscape. But she’s woefully unprepared when her infallible intuition tells her that client Emery Lawson is the soul mate she’s been waiting for all her life. Emery is clearly determined to remain unattached, and her high-risk vagabond lifestyle is too far outside Pasha’s comfort zone.
All that they think they want and know will be challenged when the two are thrust into a nightmare of survival and endurance high above the Arctic Circle.
