In the remote Rocky Mountains, lives depend on the Search & Rescue brotherhood. But in a place this far off the map, trust is hard to come by and secrets can be murder...
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...
On His Watch is the first book in a new series called Search and Rescue from debut author Katie Ruggle. It’s the story of Field County Rescue Dive Team member Derek Warner and elementary school teacher Artemis “Artie” Rey. Derek and Artemis grew up together and eventually became lovers. At some point, Derek’s juvenile antics get him and Artemis arrested. Derek decides that he isn’t good enough for her so he ends their relationship and focuses on cleaning up his act. In the 4 years since their breakup, Artemis has been married and divorced. Neither of them have ever gotten over each other.
While Derek and his team are doing a demonstration for Artie’s 4th Grade class on an icy winter day, one little boy actually falls through the ice and two little girls go missing. During the frantic search and rescue, Derek and Artie have the opportunity to address their past and their future. In a short time, we find out how their lives apart had developed and why they are so much better together. There’s a good amount of suspense for a novella and definitely a little heat. Hopefully, the rest of the series will be as exciting.
