Maverick is a complete standalone novel and the second book about the rough and rugged Nelson brothers. Get ready for one wild alpha mountain man - Canada's never felt so hot!

Forget playing it safe.

John “Maverick” Nelson likes to live his life on the edge – literally. A crucial member of the search and rescue team in the mountainous British Columbian town of North Ridge, Maverick’s brash and bold attitude means he’s the first one to ascend into danger, no matter the risk.

When it comes to women, though, Maverick errs on the side of caution. For all his cocky charm, rugged good looks and sexual swagger, he remains as unreachable as the surrounding peaks. Hot, wild sex? He’ll tell you there’s no better way to spend a cold, wintry night. Relationships? He’d rather freeze.

That is until he lays his eyes on American Riley Clarke. Trading in the crippling expenses of Aspen for BC, Riley is North Ridge’s newest member of their search and rescue team and the only woman on the job, which means spending a lot of time with Mav in adrenaline-pumping situations.

With the chemistry between them hot enough to melt snow, keeping their hands off each other is detriment to the success of their team. Besides, Maverick’s her boss and she didn’t work her ass off in Colorado just to throw it all away for some mind-blowing sex.

But when the worst winter in years sweeps in, Riley and Maverick will have to battle the elements along with their attraction for each other. And if either of them slip up, both of them will be in for a deep freeze. 

Maria’s Review

4.5 stars
➦I have been waiting for Maverick for a while now. Damn you (you know who you are) for making me wait for this beastly hunk of a man for so long! *stink eye*

➦Oh but he has a arrived and I have to say I couldn’t be happier. Reading about snowy mountains and avalanches and just nature, in general, always fascinates me. The setting of this book is beautiful and… and… who wouldn’t want to read about having hot monkey sex in remote places on earth?

➦I’ll keep this short. A hot burly search and rescue team leader + hot new in town just got hired to work for the same team female = trying really hard to not break the no fraternization policy while going on overnight rescue missions in the middle of nowhere. 

➦One last note – loved the heroine! She was very sexually forward and enjoyed taunting the hero in worst possible ways. I can’t wait for the next book, looks like it’s going to be about one sexy firefighter 😀 I’ll be here. I’ll be waiting.
