Rescue in the Rockies follows Janey, who’s almost 15, as she’s forced to spend the holidays with her grandmother and her grandmother’s new beau, Charlie. Being in Banff, Alberta, isn’t the problem. But Charlie has invited his annoying,16-year-old grandson Max for the stay. When Janey tries to flee the infuriating Max, she finds herself whisked away from present-day Banff and into wide-open Rocky Mountain wilderness. This visit to 1883 is the first of four time-travel adventures. With an unwitting Max, Janey lands in a First World War internment camp, a "Banff Indian Days" celebration and the inaugural Banff Winter Festival. As Janey deals with present-day chaos, including the appearance of an old crush, she tries to figure out what’s causing her mysterious disappearances. What do the four visits have in common, and can Janey solve this mystery before the enemy she's made in the past captures her and Max for good?

Former Green Beret Max Thornton’s career ended when he fell two hundred and fifty feet during a training exercise and broke nearly every bone in his body. Left with a permanent limp and in need of a job, he is recruited by Brotherhood Protectors where he can use his combat training and skills to protect, guard and rescue others. He didn’t expect his first assignment to be the resident mechanic. Nor did he expect the mechanic to be a spitfire of a female with a whole lot of anger. Josephina Angelica Barrera-Ramirez or JoJo, as her friends call her, prefers to be left alone with the work she does on the machinery and vehicles of the Lost Valley Ranch. Suffering from situational amnesia brought on by an attack she sustained during a deployment to Afghanistan, she’s touchy about being touched and doesn’t take flak from anyone. When she becomes the target of a killer, a former Green Beret is assigned as her bodyguard. Forced to have the Green Beret around, her distrust of men is challenged and the wall around her heart crumbles. When danger threatens, Max and JoJo must fight their own fears to defeat evil while losing the battle of their hearts to win a future together.

Mountain rescue in western Canada developed through the Canadian Pacific Railway's use of Swiss guides to enhance the climbing experience in the early 1900s. These guides brought their knowledge of mountain rescue to the Canadian Rockies. As climbing gained in popularity with the emerging middle classes after the Second World War, tragic accidents became more common. Two accidents in 195455 (the deaths of a group of female climbers from Mexico on Mt. Victoria and a group of Philadelphia schoolboys on Mt. Temple) forced the government to develop a professional mountain rescue team through the Park Warden Service under the tutelage of Walter Perren (a Swiss guide and the father of mountain rescue in Canada). Perren essentially turned cowboys into competent rescue personnel, and the story takes off from there.Following five principal men through the first 50 years of mountain rescue in Canada, Guardians of the Peaks also looks at all aspects of the rescue experience. It is the story of personal tragedy and the ability of individuals to cope with this stress-laced, demanding occupation.
