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!

Blogito Ergo Sum

That's Latin for "I blog, therefore I am."

I haven't been keeping up very well, have I?

I blame Libby. I went to her place after work last Friday (the first day of my failure to blog), and had a terrific time. She's gorgeous, sweet, funny, naughty and a very good cook. She made a couple of really delicious dishes for us — asparagus and portobello mushrooms in one and a scrumptious pasta dish that had perfectly cooked pasta with tomatoes, seared spinach and some kind of very light but delicous sauce. (This is starting to sound like Leiha's blog, isn't it?)

We drank lemoncello — the first time I'd tasted that — and I got a bit tipsy. Which led to four hours of conversation, followed by a scrumptious viewing of Carolina Moon. The hero, Cade Lavelle, was played by an actor who ought to be part of every woman's FDA recommended daily allowance of vitamin hunk.

The cool thing is that Libby lives 20 minutes up the highway, so we can do a repeat on that night anytime.

Saturday and Sunday I spent frantically writing, trying to finish up the primary sex scene in Unlawful Contact. Now that it's done, I'm not sure what I think of it. I may rewrite substantial portions of the chapter toward the end in order to thread in a little plot point. I won't get time to look at it today, unfortunately.

I stayed up writing until 2 a.m. Monday morning hoping to get the chapter to Aimee, then couldn't sleep, then had to get up to go to work at the paper at 5 a.m., so yesterday was a haze. I came home and crashed. Today I'm doing much better.

But to make up for my failure to blog, I offer this website as recompense:

I chose Brian in the kitchen in the contruction worker outfit — which he, of course, removed. YUM!

And just so you'll know, I now have an enormous iTunes bill from downloading all of the songs y'all recommended. Some of them are fantastic. "Freak Me" by Silk is a winner. Very sexy! I can't remember who suggested that one.

OMG.. When Lib sent the cleaning hunk website to me, I chose Brian in a construction get-up as well. Ha! Great minds think alike, eh? Glad you are recovering from the Libmeister Extravaganza.. I'm going to check out that tune you mentioned on iTunes. xoxo, K

Debbie H said...

Hey girl, glad you had a fantastic time at Libby's. She sounds like lots of fun and you definitely needed the time away.
You know you are your harshest critic and will have written the best book ever when it's all said and done.
Man, I would not have made it at work yesterday on no sleep. I would either have had my head on my desk or asleep in the bathroom stall or under someone's desk, wait depends on whose desk. There might be something under that would keep me awake!! *BEG*
Now, I am off to check out this website you have offered up.

Love ya,
Debbie H

Aimee said...

I too, chose Brian in the construction outfit LMFAO!

Kristi, Pamela, I already knew we would all pick the same guy LOL!

Very happy you had a great time at Libby's! btw, did I tell you she has inadvertantly cost me $100.00?
You can see why at my blog tomorrow LMAO

Have a lovely day, and 18 was great, I just wish it was longer *EG*


Rosie said...

Yes, thanks for the cleaning hunk. I chose Brian in construction gear to clean the bathroom. I am now ready for him to join me in a bubble bath. *BEG*

Sounds like you and Libby had an awesome time. I have a nice bottle of my own lemoncello in the freezer. I think I'll pop it open when I watch Carolina Moon (I taped it too). Yes, that man is a total hunk. He's on a new sitcom on Monday nights too - Rules of Engagement. It's kind of difficult to watch, though, unless you really like sitcoms.

I'm afraid to even go on to itunes cuz I always spend too much money. LOL.


Libby Loo said...

Pamela, thank you so much for the kind words! We had a great time, even if it did put both of us behind in Blogland *G* Let's hope more of our sistas can come to the Rockies to join the fun!

I feel like I need to go into witness protection now though, especially with Aimee saying I'm inadvertantly responsible for $100! OMG! I'm so scared to find out LOL. It's something really girly, isn't it?

Don't tell my husband, but I feel like a starved cougar every time I see Mr. Hotbuns (aka Mr. Hudson)...RAWR! I hope everyone gets to see it.
