Stranded with Desire by Vivien Dean & Rick R. Reed

When their plane crashed, their desire took flight.

CEO Maine Braxton and his invaluable assistant, Colby, don’t realize they share a deep secret: they’re in love—with each other. That secret may have never come to light but for a terrifying plane crash in the Cascade Mountains that changes everything.

In a struggle for survival, the two men brave bears, storms, and a life-threatening flood to make it out of the wilderness alive. The proximity to death makes them realize the importance of love over propriety. Confessions emerge. Passions ignite. They escape the wilds renewed and openly in love.

When they return to civilization, though, forces are already plotting to snuff out their short-lived romance and ruin everything both have worked so hard to achieve.

This is a really lovely story, with two very likeable leads who survive a frightening plane crash and work out what really is important in life. Colby has known for a while that his boss is the one he wants – even if Maine is engaged to a woman. But Maine is so busy making sure that the family business thrives, and keeping everyone happy, that he hasn't had time to acknowledge what his heart has been telling him. However, the crash certainly changes things, and changes his path.

As we watch this new romance unfold, even if the feelings are strong already, it is very touching, and hopeful. I think that the writing captures well Maine's almost shock at recognising who is before him, his worry about upsetting others, but his courage at being honest.

Very enjoyable read, thank you Ms. Dean and Mr. Reed.
