Kathmandu, Nepal, 1300 meters above sea level
Dr. Juliet Adams is an expert in her field of high-altitude medicine and she’s about to take on the most dangerous, grueling challenge of all — Mount Everest!
Everest Base Camp, 5400 meters above sea level
It’s Juliet’s life ambition to reach the summit to finish what her brother couldn’t — he died climbing it. But one man stands in her way. Brooding Dr. Finn McBride is also on the expedition and it’s their job to work together, trust each other and ensure everyone’s safety, when every moment could be fatal.
Camp IV in the South Col, “the Death Zone”
Finn’s natural instinct is to protect his determined, beautiful colleague. He knows she’s got secrets, but on Everest, there’s nowhere to hide.
