Rebecca James is one of the best climbers in the business, but when her partner Dane dies during a rescue mission, questions are raised. Becki has holes in her memory of those critical hours and no longer trusts herself. However, when she is asked to come to Banff to teach at David Landers’ search-and-rescue school, Becki accepts. After getting injured on the job, Marcus Landers had to give up his undercover operations. He then formed Lifeline and created an expert rescue team. Years ago, Becki and Marcus had a sizzling fling that neither has forgotten and the sparks are still intense. However, each of them has emotional wounds, and unless Becki can solve the mystery of her memory lapses, she won’t be able to move forward. (BERKLEY, Mar., 336 pp., $7.99)
