Peril on the Mountain by Elizabeth Goddard.
Love and danger in the Alaskan wilderness
After witnessing a murder, legal investigator Leah Marks flees to Alaska. But the killer has tracked her down and as he chases her into a snow-packed canyon, an avalanche buries them both. Saved by search-and-rescue specialist Cade Warren, Leah longs to tell him the truth. But how can she, without bringing even more danger into Cade’s life?
On a daring mission, search-and-rescue specialist Heidi Warren and her team step onto an icy Alaskan mountaintop…and right into a trap. A stranded gang of thieves holds them at gunpoint, forcing them to serve as guides along the treacherous path. Heidi needs someone to trust, but her rescue partner, Isaiah Callahan, is keeping secrets from her. Yet when a blizzard starts closing in, their options start running out…

From Author Website
Peril on the Mountain is a reprint of the first two books in Elizabeth Goddard’s Love Inspired Suspense Mountain Cove series. Mountain Cove features the Warren family, who operate an Avalanche Center in Mountain Cove, Alaska, as well as assist on search and rescue teams.
Both of these stories have high stakes, lots of danger, and showcase the natural and dangerous beauty of southeastern Alaska. From avalanches to blizzards to glacier fields, the bad guys aren’t the only trouble the characters face. For this alone, these are some of my favorite types of stories.
If you’re looking for a sweet romance mixed with lots of danger, Elizabeth Goddard is one of my go-to authors and I highly recommend this 2-in-1 book.
