DSC00220-e1341676554917We are thrilled to welcome Vivian Arend back to BLI today for the next stop on her High Risk Adventure Tour in celebration of her new book coming from Berkley Sensation on March 5th entitled, you guessed it: HIGH RISK. Viv has unique and special treat in store for us today! A photo album/tour of one of her adventurous trips…to Alaska! So join in on the fun and be sure to stay tuned to the end of the photo tour for Giveaway information!

About Viv:

Vivian Arend in one word: Adventurous. In a sentence: Willing to try just about anything once. That wide-eyed attitude has taken her around North America, through parts of Europe, and into Central and South America, often with no running water.

Her optimistic outlook also meant that when challenged to write a book, she gave it a shot, and discovered creating worlds to play in was nearly as addictive as traveling the real one. Now a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of both contemporary and paranormal stories, Vivian continues to explore, write and otherwise keep herself well entertained.

Book Blurb:

LIFELINE: an elite search-and-rescue squad based out of Banff, Alberta. Specializing in high-risk rescue missions, this team goes wherever the job takes them…

Rebecca James was once revered for her devil-may-care attitude and backcountry survival skills. But ever since she lost her partner in a fatal accident, patches of her memory have been missing. And until she can recall those final, tragic moments before the accident, she can’t move on.

Since Marcus Landers was permanently injured during a mission, all his energies have been focused on his Lifeline team. When Becki—whom he had an intense affair with seven years ago—arrives in Banff, he’s inspired to reignite the spark they once had. Their mutual ardor slowly awakens Becki’s dormant, haunting memories.

New truths surface until Becki must at last confront her greatest fear. Remembering the past might mean a future without the man she loves…

    Sounds (and looks) like you had a great time! High Risk sounds very adventurous too 🙂

    • Vivian Arend February 27, 2013 at 10:11 am

      It was an amazing trip, only I didn’t include the picture of the wet dog or the camper stuck in the sand. 😉

  • Patricia Eimer February 27, 2013 at 9:50 am

    Such gorgeous pictures. I’d love to take my kids to Alaska one summer.

  • laurie goudge February 27, 2013 at 10:17 am

    Thanks for the fun post! Makes me want to go on an adventure too 🙂 Congrats to Vivian on the new release!

    We flew to Anchorage, rented a car for 10 days and went to the Kenai Peninsula and to Valdez. I always wanted to live in Alaska, it’s such an amazing place, and I’d still like to drive the Alaska highway someday.

  • Susan T. February 27, 2013 at 11:22 am

    What an awesome trip. Would love to visit Alaska, it’s on my bucket list.

  • Jess1 February 27, 2013 at 1:59 pm

    Your trip looked fantastic with all of the beautiful scenery. New to your books and would love a chance to read one of them. Thanks!

  • Lily B February 27, 2013 at 6:07 pm

    wonderful pictures, I been wanting to go to Alaska, I think it would be an amazing trip <3 thank you for sharing with us

  • Cris February 27, 2013 at 7:14 pm

    I love travelling and try to do it as much as time & money allow… would you adopt me & take me with you on your trips?? As of June, I’ll have a doctorate, I’m multilingual, I come fully grown (and raised well, if I do say so myself), I can drive, and I have an adventurous spirit :).

    Cannot wait for HIGH RISK!

    • Vivian Arend February 27, 2013 at 7:18 pm

      LOL! I will say that most of our trips have been -very- inexpensive. Lots of camping, hiking and otherwise self-propelled through the wilderness. That helps keep down the costs.

      Hope you enjoy High Risk!

  • June M. February 27, 2013 at 8:15 pm

    Your pictures are lovely. Camping & hiking would be a great way to explore and travel. I could not do it any longer due to problems with my back, hip, & legs. These pictures definitely help me picture where the Wolfies live 🙂

  • Victoria Zumbrum February 27, 2013 at 9:05 pm

    Alaska is so beautiful. I would love to visit one day. Thanks for the giveaway. Please enter me.

  • Jen B. February 27, 2013 at 9:54 pm

    Poor soaking wet puppy! I didn’t know Alaska in August was the rainy season. I have had Alaska on my wishlist forever.

  • bn100 February 27, 2013 at 10:10 pm

    Nice pics. Thanks for sharing.

  • Mary Preston February 28, 2013 at 2:56 am

    The pictures certainly make you want to visit the area.

  • aurian February 28, 2013 at 12:16 pm

    Another great tour stop, I love looking at your pics Vivian! And that poor doggy, not getting dry for so long. Curious where you will be next 🙂

  • Diah Didi March 4, 2013 at 11:59 am

    Oh wow, I loved your pictures, and how it told us stories. Do you like scrap-booking by the way? I enjoy seeing people’s works but never tried to do it.
    Never been to Alaska. Correction, never been to America. But I guess you can experience the adventure anywhere, right. Although still, my family has never been on this kind of trip. Somehow you inspire me to do so.
    Can’t wait to read High-Risk. It’s on its way and will be my very first book of yours.
    Thank you so much for the giveaway. ^^
