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!

Sweeter (re)Release

Long time, no see! I miss your posts. I miss your emails. But who am I to complain because I'm the one who vanished!

This past week, we put to bed what is usually our biggest paper of the year—132 pages that included the regular paper, in addition to our "Best of" issue. Major PITA, of course, but at least it's done for another year. And it turned out well, I think. I spent the week before working 12-hour days, bringing work home with me and editing until I could not stay awake.

The result is that I'm chronically behind on email and blogging and everything else, including finishing Untamed. It was due Feb. 29, after all. Then I got till the first week of April—which, alas, has passed. However, I'm working on the last chapter this weekend and hope to have the story edited and out the door by the Monday after Mother's Day.

The cool news is that I got a box of cover flats today for my historicals—the new covers for Ride the Fire and Surrender, together with the updated covers of Sweet Release and Carnal Gift. I must have hundreds of these now—a good excuse for a contest, no? What am I going to do with 400 cover flats?

But here's the scoop: My backlist is being re-released in October with extras inside (which still have to be written...) and the books will cost only $4.99.

I didn't know that, and I'm excited about it, because stuff is too expensive these days, and this will give people who've never read my books a reason to pick them up. It will also make it easier for people who've read them before, but want to pick up a new copy of Ride the Fire or Surrender just to have the covers, won't have to shell out 8 bucks to do it.

One thing I noticed about the new covers. My name is so BIG!

Coming soon:
—I-Team Trivia: Who knows most about Kara, Tessa and Sophie? Who's the expert on Reece, Julian and Marc? I'll post the questions, you email the answers and the winner gets a signed book, plus "Marc" and "Sophie" perfume—not to mention bragging rights.
—Investigative Reporter Bootcamp: So you think you want to become an investigative reporter. Read this training manual and take the multiple-choice quiz to see if you've got the right stuff to join the staff in my newsroom.
—An Interview with My Mom: She's a woman I admire, a woman who's literally saved lives with her own hands, a woman who's made a difference in hundreds of other people's lives. It's my little tribute to my mom.

So stay tuned. I'll try not to vanish for long periods again, but don't you vanish either, unless it's on some sexy beach vacation, in which case you have to take your camera with you so that you can snap photos of beach hunks to share. :-)

You could make some really good wallpaper with the covers! Jut paste them together, put them up in your office, get nothing done because you're drooling over the hot male bodies... :) BTW, got the book and the scents in the mail, they are wonderful! Thanks so much.. Rachel :)

Karen said...

Just wanted to say thanks! I got my book today.

Hi, Debbie — Glad to hear you like the covers. Thanks for the support. I'm so glad BoB is over! Now on to other things... I'll try to get the contests going soon.

Hey, Christie — Thanks! I hope you're right! I missed you, too. As for resting up, I'm taking Thursday off... to work on my book. No rest for the truly wicked. :-)

Hi, Charina — I'm not entirely sure. I'll post when I know 100 percent for certain.

Hi, Christi — I'm still thinking of your friend. And thanks! As for normal, I'm not sure I even remember what that is...

Hi, Jenn — Thanks so much! I hope the contests will be fun. I'll get a kick out of them, at least. LOL!

Hey, Ronlyn — I hope little Alex is doing better.

Hi, Rachel — I'm glad you like the scents. I loooove "Sophie." As for wallpaper, at work I have no hot bodies because I'm a supervisor and don't want to get sued. LOL! I have Danish castles instead. Woo, sexy.

Karen, I'm so glad you got your book! Sorry that took so long.

Cheryle said...

Great Covers! I definately need to replace Ride the Fire. I had to buy that one used and it has spin creasing. Doesn't quite fit with the rest of them that I bought new LOL!
