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!

The "cast" of the I-Team — final results

I must have ADD, because I suddenly found myself wanting to move on from this topic. Therefore I spent some time one evening "casting" the rest of the rolls. I used your votes to cast the heroes, then just kind of went out and did the rest. I hope you like the results!

Reece and Kara

Julian and Tessa

Marc and Sophie

Tom Trent or Chief Irving -- I have a very concrete image of both men in my mind and I had a hard time finding anyone who came close. However, this suggestion (made by Bo? I can't remembeR) is a good one.

This is exactly how I think of Matt, plus I love Paul Bettany! He's a fantastic actor and fits Matt to a "T."

Jennifer Connelly (by coincidence Paul Bettany's wife) would be the perfect Natalie.

Natasha Kaye Johnson is a real Navajo actress and journalist. She'd be a great Kat with contact lenses. I'm not sure who she's with in this photo, but the grannie here is very much typical of the wonderful grannies one finds in Navajoland.


Whoa! The layout got a bit wonky. The couples are supposed to be side by side! Not sure what happened with Marc and Sophie. Sophie ended up down next to Tom/Chief Irving!

I didn't post anyone for Gabe because that book isn't done yet. And no sneak-peeks at Natalie's story. Not yet!

Bo said...

YES,yes! Ray Liotta for Irving! I love Ray *G* I like Kidman as Sophie,too.Great picks,and I've loved Paul Bettany ever since he played Chaucer-SO funny!
And of course the ever beautiful Jennifer Connelly (oh,how I loathe thee,LOL) is a wonderful pick as well!

Rowena said...

Oh wow, it's great to have faces to go with the characters. I love it!

Thanks, Bo. I'm glad you approve. I first saw Paul Bettany in A KNIGHT'S TALE, too, and I loved him as Chaucer. My favorite line: "I'm a writer! I give the truth scope!" Amen, baby. LMAO! And, yes, Jennifer C is just too incredibly beautiful to be allowed, don't you think?

Hi, Rowena — I'm glad it doesn't ruin the story for you. I know there are probably some people who want to keep the images they had in their own minds, and not see those turned into celebrities. But I thought it would be fun to pretend to cast the books as if they were movies.

BTW, the actress I picked for Tessa is Sophia Myles. She's absolutely what I pictured for Tessa in MOONLIGHT, the CBS series in which she played -- of all things -- a journalist. She had longer hair in the series and that was perfect.

RitaSV said...

Sophia Miles! Yes! I loved her in Moonlight....of course I loved Alex O'Loughlin more! ;o)

I like Natasha Kaye Johnson....she has a soft, thoughtful air. I've not heard of her before.

Nicole is a little too icy for me but surely very lovely.

Hey, Pamela! Great choices! Oh and my layout does that sometimes as well.

Have a great weekend.

Debbie H said...

Love the choices! How's the writing coming along?

Linda A. said...

Good choices, Pamela. It's fun to have faces to put to Reece and Kara. I'm looking forward to meeting the rest of the team, and finding out why Gabe is such a silly goat.

Hi, Rita — You're talking to another Alex fan here. LOL! I was so bummed when they cancelled the show! I don't have TV, so I watched it online. I agree, too, about Nicole. I had a hard time thinking of strawberry-blonde actresses who look pixie-ish.

Hi, Barbara — Well, your blog is the rocking-est blog, so if your layout does this sometimes, then I won't feel bad about mine. LOL! I'm so sorry I've been in a black hole lately. Work at the paper has been taking up most of my time. Good to see you!

Also, for the record, y'all, I'm fine with Henry Cavill being Reece, too. I adore him from TUDORS (which I download from i-Tunes).

Hi, Debbie — well the writing would be going better if I hadn't developed OCD — Obsessive Cullen Disorder. More on that in a blog post...

Hi, LInda — Got your Facebook message, by the way. Thanks! Good to know your pen name! Glad you like the choices for Reece and Kara. I really think Raffaello and Sophie look hot together, so I hope someone DOES make a film with the two of them. I'd watch it. LOL!

Elise said...

Ooh, you've almost got it! I always pictured Sophia Myles as your Sophie. If you look at her, she has a slightly elvish, pixiesh look already. It's just a matter of finding the right photo. Sorry everyone, but I can only find links to photos:

(Hope that works...) She has straight hair in that one. Here's another one with her and Alex O'Loughlin (who I think would be perfect as Matt:

As for Tessa, sorry ladies, but I've ALWAYS pictured Natasha McElhone as the tall leggy blonde. She has BIG blue eyes and she just looks gorgeous. Sorry Pamela, I know you want her to be true golden blonde but it's just the lady I see when I think of Tess. Here are a couple of links to images that I think work (Natasha doesn't always look the part...):


Gosh I hope that works!
All the rest look spot on though!
Gorgeous photo your son took of you :o)

Luci said...

Love your choices Pamela. I loved Paul Bettany in A Knight's Tale too and in most of his following films too of course :).

Hi, Elise — I finally had time to look at your links, and Natasha McElhone certainly is exotic looking. Very beautiful! I still think of Sophie Myles as Tessa. When I first saw MOONLIGHT, I said, "OMG, It's Tess!" Alex O'Laughlin certainly is adorable. He could be Matt, though I have a very soft spot for Paul Betany, who looks a lot like my brother. LOL!

Hi, Luci — Wasn't he fantastic in that movie? And everything else. Another great line:

"I'm a writer."
"A... a what"
"A writer. I write."


Tena said...

wow the men are cute and the women are pretty dont know if you know this actor but Kevin Sorbo would look good as one of the rangers he played in Hercules
