Holding On (Colorado High Country #6) —
The Colorado High Country series returns with Conrad and Kenzie's story.

A hero barely holding on…

Harrison Conrad returned to Scarlet Springs from Nepal, the sole survivor of a freak accident on Mt. Everest. Shattered and grieving for his friends, he vows never to climb again and retreats into a bottle of whiskey—until Kenzie Morgan shows up at his door with a tiny puppy asking for his help. He’s the last person in the world she should ask to foster this little furball. He’s barely capable of managing his own life right now, let alone caring for a helpless, adorable, fluffy puppy. But Conrad has always had a thing for Kenzie with her bright smile and sweet curves. One look into her pleading blue eyes, and he can’t say no.

The woman who won’t let him fall…

Kenzie Morgan’s life went to the dogs years ago. A successful search dog trainer and kennel owner, she gets her fill of adventure volunteering for the Rocky Mountain Search & Rescue Team. The only thing missing from her busy life is love. It’s not easy finding Mr. Right in a small mountain town, especially when she’s unwilling to date climbers. She long ago swore never again to fall for a guy who might one day leave her for a rock. When Conrad returns from a climbing trip haunted by the catastrophe that killed his best friend, Kenzie can see he’s hurting and wants to help. She just might have the perfect way to bring him back to the world of the living. But friendship quickly turns into something more—and now she’s risking her heart to heal his.

In ebook and soon in print!

Anticipating Evil (Libby, that is)

So tomorrow at this time — or thereabouts — I'll be north of here at the home of Evil Libby from the RBL Romantica board. Libby has recorded CAROLINA MOON with her Tivo so that she and I can watch it. There will be alcohol, and perhaps a police escort home, if I'm not careful. Ahem.

Anyway, I'm really looking forward to this. It's made me think about the ReBeLs I've met, those I've talked with on the phone and how many wonderful friends I've made through the RBL Romantica message board over the years. It's such a fun place to hang out, and I feel so privileged to be included in the group. There are, after all, places on the 'Net that are less than welcoming to authors, and there are places that are for readers only. But RBL Romantica is the perfect place to mingle and just be yourself.

I've met in person: Vickie, the original Headmistress of RBL; Linda, our Den Mom; Lina, the Sexy Pretzel and contest coordinator extraordinaire; Su, my sexy dance partner; Leiha, my other sexy dance partner; Linda T, the elusive Rebel, now know as Sparklz on the BTS blog; and Mich the Sexy Wonder Mom.

I've talked on the phone with Aimee, who can personally take credit for keeping me awake and sane while I was writing Hard Evidence,; wonderful Rae, who isn't on the board as much as I wish she were; Boadicea, who is tons of fun and lives nearby -- relatively speaking; Little Red Devil Ann Owen, who had lots of good advice on my recent work situation; our darling Beaty; and probably a few others, too... (I think Judy and I talked once when she was at Vic's house...)

I've chatted via IM with Nes the sex goddess and sweet and darling Rosie (no, Ro, I didn't forget what I was going to send you).

I've traded emails with so many other ReBeLs, each of them reaching out at times to offer feedback or support or friendship: Robin, Jaycee, Karen, Missy, Heather, Tammy, Debbie H, Cindy O., Bobbi, Sarah, Amy, Rhiannon, Patty S., Kelly C., Tammy2, Sara, Kristi, Beth, Sandra, MiladyM, Ronlyn and others...

RBL rocks. What can I say? I've loved every minute of it. :-)

So now I'm about to meet Libby and find out exactly how evil she is. I hear she's a Badass Warrior Princess in her spare time. Good thing her DH is a cop. He can keep her BWP butt out of jail. Hopefully one of us will be capable of taking pictures, even wearing handcuffs.

OK, back to writing. Thanks for sharing your playlists — there are literally dozens and dozens of songs for me to listen to. Thanks, too, for weighing in on fun places to have sex. I love it! And, hey, I need all the inspiration I can get.

OMG!!! I'm LMAO right now at your post...I had the crappiest, longest day/week (and I still have goggle marks on my face from lab 4 hours ago if that tells you anything!) and this is seriously the first time I felt like laughing all day.

And yes, we will reinvent The Evil tomorrow, I have new batteries for the camera, got my Swedish brows waxed (not as kinky as it sounds), and the cuffs are polished (and majorly disinfected LOL). Good times!

RBL is awesome, I couldn't believe there were other chicks out there like me, who I didn't have to hide my wild side with. Hopefully I get to meet even more of you!


Joanie said...

Ahem! *clearing my throat*

You have had the distinct pleasure of im chatting with me too!
I'm a tiger, remember?

Sigh, I never make much of an impression on folks, story of my life...*grin*

Now, damnit... I am SO friggin' jealous... I wish I didn't live in the big OH or I'd haul my fat butt over to hang out with y'all.. Knowing my buddy Libby as I do, I am sure you both will be laughing a-plenty. Have an adult beverage FOR ME, ok?? xoxo, Kristi (I had to sign in Anonymous 'cause Google is CHOKING)

Debbie H said...

Have a blast, lots of alcholic beverages and give us all the details,please? And above all pics are required!! LOL

I am honored to be one of your email buddies and if you every want to know what my voice sounds like, you have my number.

I have loved being on the RBL board and finding other ladies I can be open and honest with about everything. I have KMM to thank for that. If she had never mentioned it in her books, I would have never found your wonderful books!

Have fun!! *BEG*

Rosie said...

Oh, Pamela, you guys are going to have a blast!! I can't wait to hear about all the wild and crazy revelry that happens. Oh, and pics too!

RBL really has been a great meeting place. In fact, most of my best friends are from there. They are the girls I trust to laugh with, talk with and cry with. We'll just have to make a point to chat on the phone some day soon!! And I can't wait to have the pleasure of meeting you in person. I know it will happen some day!

I got your e-mail this morning. I now have my lunch hour reading material. I hope I don't choke on my food at anything too hot and spicy! Thanks, sweetie, for sending it to me!


JOANIE! Yes, indeed, I have chatted and emailed with you. Sorry!


I knew I'd forget someone!

Kristi, I'll make sure Libby drinks one for you. I can't have too many unless I want to walk home. (Not fun.)

And thanks for your good wishes, everyone. I'm very excited. About to leave work and make the commute home... and then on to Libby's. :-)

Tammy2 said...

Glad you are going out to HAVE FUN
you deserve a day to relax and wind
down. Have one for me. I wish I was

glad to

Leiha said...

This must the weekend for RBL gatherings, I'm on my way to BAM's tomorrow.

Quite honestly, I can't imagine my life without RBL in it. My closest friends and so many of my fondest memories are wrapped up in people I met because of RBL. Shoot, I have my job because of RBL, LOL. RBL is and will always be my home!

You two have fun and I want pics and stories! I've been dying to see what Libby Loo the badass warrior princess looks like.

Aimee said...

Where is it?! Ahhhhhh!

Aimee said...

Well? You're supposed to tell all about it now LOL!
