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!

Happy spring!

A holiday dedicated to the consumption of chocolate... What could be better than that?

I wish those of you who celebrate it a Happy Easter! I hope you have a wonderful day filled with good food and family.


Eye candy instead of candy when we indulge in Week II of MTM

Happy Easter to you. And my boys are thrilled that I let them eat the chocolate bunnies for breakfast today. LOL

Ronlyn, I miss those days of little ones with Easter goodies. Happy Easter and Spring to you, PC. We had a meal with the kids and grandkids, and laughed ourselves silly watching Ahava (3yrs old) and Malachi (17mo ) hunt eggs. The looks on Malachi's face were priceless. Anastasia (8yrs old) is an old hand at this, so I had to be creative, hiding them for her.

MTM! Quickly becoming my favorite day of the week!
Hope you had a great day. It was beautiful here. The kids even swam in the lake. They seemed to enjoy themselves, blue lips and all.

Happy Easter. Another good reason for eye candy. No calories, hehe...

Loving the Gabe playlist, all the songs are SO perfect for him. Oh my gosh, the NIN "Closer" song really gave off such sense of self-destruction. I knew the betrayal(s) hurt Gabe deeply but this song just made his anger/pain more palpable.

Metallica. Classic. I can picture the climbing ascensions. Annie Lennox's voice can make me sob in itself but to think of Gabe lying at the cliff base, all alone & cold and Kat grieving...tearing up just thinking about it.

Joseph Fire Crow's work: haunting & evocative. And "Chasing Cars" is so quintessentially Marc & Sophie.

I can definitely see how music is your muse! :-)

Debbie H, I'm enjoying the days with our little guys. We spent the weekend visiting my hubby's great aunt who lives alone since her man passed away a year ago. She loved having the boys there and it was so nice to be able to celebrate with her. Alex (2) has announced he wants to go live with her. LOL.

Sorry, y'all! Been writin'. If I'm going to write faster, I'm going to have to trim the time I spend online. (I hate those kinds of trade-offs!)

No Easter candy at all in my house today. I haven't had chocolate for... (drum roll)...


Ronlyn, I'd be happy to have chocolate bunnies for breakfast, too. Good for your boys! I hope you all got the spend the day together. So cool that you got to have the boys' great aunt over! Extended family can be very special.

Hi, Debbie — What fun to watch those adorable grandbabies of yours hunt for eggs! When they're that little, it's just adorable. I remember those days well.

Goodness, Kara, swimming in a lake? Where do you live again? If you tried swimming in a lake here, you'd have to break through the ice first. And some looney people do.

Hi, Scorpio — I'm so glad you're enjoying those songs. Yes, "Closer" is SO Gabe — trying to forget through sex.

I'm reading through NAKED EDGE myself -- I've finally been able to pick it up and look at it -- and I can't wait to get to the end to see what I think of the emotional impact of that scene.

And, yes, music is so essential. Here soon I'll post my initial SURVIVAL INSTINCT playlist. It's taking some time to pull itself together.

Scorpio M. said...

I can't speak for your other fans but feel free to ignore me. I will not be offended! LOL. Seriously. Go drink coffee, blast music & write!

Kara C said...

It is TOO COLD to swim. The day itself was gorgeous, but we need a few more warm weeks before we need to be jumping into the lake. Try telling that to a group of
under 10s, who only know that if we're at Grandma's house, swimming must be involved. You can almost see them shivering in the pics on FB. LOL
Can't wait for songs for Natalie and Zach. With the current playlist, the house was clean in record time.

Mary G said...

Hope everyone had a Happy Easter.

Well, I know this will come as bad news, but you have to look at this fine man's flesh for another day because I don't have time to update this blog today.

My deepest and most sincere apologies!!!! :-)
