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.


Stranded with Desire is a great story co-authored by two wonderful authors. Ms. Dean and Mr. Reed pull their readers in from the beginning with a prologue that gives the readers a glimpse of what is coming. From there, they continue to hold the reader’s attention until the very last page.

The main characters are two men who will learn just how strong they are. Maine is the CEO of a family company. He has taken over for his father and works hard to keep the company going. But someone is trying to mess things up and Maine is unsure who to trust. Colby is Maine’s assistant. He makes sure his boss is where he needs to be, and that only those that need to do business with Maine get to see him. While both men love their jobs, they also love each other, something they have been keeping a secret from the other. When Maine gets a text telling him to come home, he sets things in motion that end up changing both men’s lives.

Due to the book’s blurb we know that the men will survive a plane crash, but that is not all they end up surviving. The authors really put these two men through their paces and more than a few of those moments will have you gasping. Also expect a few laughs when Colby meets a bear. It is while Maine and Colby are struggling to get back to civilization that they declare their love for each other.

Of course the plane incident is not the only problem the men end up having. There is the fact that Maine is engage, as well as the fact that someone wanted to make sure neither man made it home from Seattle.

Between the heroes Colby and Maine, as well as all the problems they face, fans of these two authors are sure to enjoy Stranded with Desire.
