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!

Quick update on BREAKING POINT

Authors are always the last to know...

Thanks to a tip from a reader, I discovered that the publication date for Breaking Point, my next I-Team story, has been bumped up to May 2011 from July. That's two whole months sooner that you’ll be able to read about Natalie’s ordeal in Mexico — and how it brings her together with the wounded warrior who needs her every bit as much as she needs him.

Breaking Point is already available on Amazon for pre-order, although they don’t have the cover up yet. You’ll have to search to find it.

Of course, if I don’t finish the book by November 30, I’ll lose that publication date. I understand now why my editor wants it absolutely by the end of the month. I’m on Chapter 29. But events at the paper have kept me extra busy. I spent this past weekend with some good friends, and this coming weekend will be shortened due to a wonky special edition deadline that is robbing me of a day off. Yikes!

Send good vibes for a crazy productive week! I’m editing the book on weeknights, trying to get revisions done at the same time that the ending of the novel is percolating in my brain.

In the meantime, I’m thinking up some fun contests, including an I-Team Re-read Challenge and a Get the I-Team Hunks Out of Your TBR and Into Your Bed Challenge.

The first would involve prizes for readers who re-read the first four books just prior to the release date of Breaking Point. The second is about encouraging readers who have the I-Team books buried in their TBR to dig them out, dust them off and read them. Do Julian and Marc really deserve to languish in TBR limbo forever?

Also, I’m going to try to get some apps going. One that comes to mind is “Pin the Canoli on the I-Team Hunk.” Thanks to Jenn J, we have the art for that, but it doesn't actually move. So I might have an apps contest, too, to see who can develop the coolest ideas for iPods, iPhones and iPads. (I say this after having played Angry Birds on Libby’s iPad. That game is addictive!)

I’d also like to give a shout out to SueZ, Libby and Kristi for being such great friends. We had a blast this weekend, thanks to Sue, who got the ball rolling. Alcohol was consumed. Laughing was epidemic. And I think we had the world's longest Skype session ever with Kristi.

Coming soon:
Playlists for Breaking Point

So, what is everyone reading these days?

Thanks, Ronlyn. I really appreciate that! I will probably take you up on it.

Hey, SueZAY! Thanks so much for flying all the way out here. It really was a blast.

I'm glad you think the PC apps idea is a good one, because guess what, babe? It was YOUR idea. :-)

Lori said...

Sending lots of good vibes for a productive week. I needs my I-team!

And each time I see the cover, it's just prettier and prettier.

Rachel said...

Woohoo! Breaking Point being released in May might convince me to live through the nasty winter! (Also, if you're reading this, you should be writing instead! Get going, girl!)

Reg said...

Pamela, I swear, if I could, I would literally fly to the States and help you write that book!
What am I reading these days, you ask? Unlawful Contact. Seriously. I kid you not, that is what I am reading. Once again, wishing you the best of luck; Go PAMELA, WOO!

Lucy said...

Great news, Pamela! (Getting the whip out) Now hurry and get those last chapters written! (g)

What am I reading right now? Butterfly Swords by Jeannie Lin. Wonderful historical set during the Tang Dynasty. She won the Golden Heart last year and I can see why.

Carrie said...

Great news! I'm game to re-read all the I-Teams books next spring. I probably would contest or not!

I'm currently reading Honest Illusions by Nora Roberts and listening to Nobody's Baby But Mine by SEP.

Luci said...

That's super news Pamela!! Cheering you on to finish by the 30th!

Am reading Emma Wildes' His Sinful Secret at the moment. I have read three good romantic suspense books lately though: Jill Sorenson's Crash Into Me; Maya Banks' The Darkest Hour and Beverly Barton's Don't Cry.

Mary G said...

Hi Pamela
That's awesome news. If we promise not to bug you then you can finish & then we can read it in May. Noooo problem!

Elise said...

Definitely I'm game to re-read the I-team series!!
Go go go good vibes and fly over the Atlantic ocean!!

What am I reading right now? I've just finished Heiress for Hire from Erin McCarthy and Rachel Gibson's Chinooks series and have just started this morning Blue SMoke from Nora Roberts.

Hello Pamela,

I can't wait for the release of Breaking Point :) Do you know if Amazon will also be releasing it on Kindle as well?


Hi, Sharon — YES! Breaking Point will be out on Kindle the same day it releases in print. :-)

Sharonc said...

Thank-you kindly Pamela; I'll keep checking Amazon so that I can hopefully pre-order ;)
