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!

Seductive Musings

Do you feel your boobies?

Do you feel your boobies? There are people who want to know — for your sake.

My younger son, Benjamin, and his friends put together a video about breast cancer awareness and are competing with other filmmakers for a $10,000 prize. As some of you know, Benjamin is studying filmmaking at Ithaca College in New York.

How does he win this prize? It’s kind of like American Idol in that he wins through votes. People can vote once a day, and the video that gets the most public support wins.

Benjy’s video plays on the Old Spice commercials, and it’s pretty clever. So if you get a chance, I’d really appreciate it if you’d click here, watch his video, which is titled Intervention, and then vote for it. You have to register, but it’s a pretty painless and quick process.

If Benjamin wins, he plans to use his share of the money as the budget for his senior thesis film, so it could really help him. And that helps me!

Thanks in advance for your support! And do remember to feel your boobies!

Go Benjy! And what a great cause!
I found a lump last year. Terrifying!
Feel those boobies people! It's important!

Luci said...

Will right there to vote for his video!

I am marketing manager at my family's private hospital and this month is all about Breast Cancer Awareness.

Thanks, Ronlyn and Luci —

It's absolutely terrifying, Ronlyn. I had a questionable mammogram a couple of years ago, and my life felt totally off kilter until the biopsy results came back.

Good for you, Luci!

And thanks again to both of you.

I voted as well, it's such a good thing to make as much promotion for this as e can, because I think especially younger women don't check themselves regularly, and it's so important.

I found a lump in my lymph gland earlier this year and eventhough it scared me a lot, I'm glad I found it, went to the doctor and it turned out to be nothing serious thank God.

And on an even more serious note, men should check themselves as well, I read an article over the summer where a men had breastcancer, so men be cautious too!!!

Good Luck with the vid Benjamin! Keeping my fingers crossed for you.

Voted! I hope he wins. It is a scary thought to find a lump and not know for sure if it is bad or not. I have a mammo every year and will encourage my daughter to get her first one at 35 for a base reading.

Doreen said...

I was 27 when I found my first lump which fortunately ended up being a fiberous tumor and not cancer. It doesn't matter who you are or how old you are...check those boobies every month!
I voted Pamela and I hope he wins!

I keep my fingers crossed for him!
