Synopsis (Goodreads):
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...
Thoughts on On His Watch: Whoa. Who knew ice rescue diving could be so hot? Not that it's hot. Or that the rescue itself was hot. But Derek was hot. SMOKIN' HOT. Without the smoke. Wow. I'd better rein this in before I go crazy with the hot ice diver word play. RIGHT?

Anywho. Derek and Artemis. Old flames. Things went south because Derek didn't want to mess up her life. He turned his life around, she's the forgiving sort and, well, forgave him for being a douchenozzle and making decisions without talking things through. They kiss and make up. IN the snow. While sharing body heat. Which is one of my favorite snow-situations EVER and I will gladly devour anything that forces people into close proximity so they don't freeze to death.

What? It's a thing I like. I make no apologies for that.

Solid characters with some nice setup for future books (both with the characters and the threat of arson hanging over them). I'm already eyeballing the next books in the series.
