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!

MTM — A search for chesticles with Jenn LeBlanc

Editor’s note: Welcome back to MTM. Sorry I didn’t get this up on time. I have been incredibly busy trying to get books ready for you, so I hope you’ll forgive me. This week, photographer, journalist and author Jenn LeBlanc returns to share with us some of the male beauty she finds as she tries to cast models for the role of her heroes for her illustrated romances. Enjoy!

Helllooo ladies, and possibly gentlemen. I am so excited to be back here for another guest Man Titty Monday post. Last time I was here, I brought my own personal collection of Man Titty from my novel. Images I photographed during my day job as a professional photographer.

I am a lucky, lucky girl. That benefits you because I like to share.

My novel The Rake And The Recluse has been very popular. What does this mean for you? It means I’m working on the sequel to the novel. It means, dear readers, that I need to find more chesticles. It means I have been spending an inordinate amount of time looking at beautiful men, for my day job. And I brought some of them with me today.

My twitter followers love the days and nights I spend casting, they follow my model surfing with the hashtag #castingPerry , and they recently convinced me to start tumbling these lovely models as well. Oh dirty bird, on Tumblr.

I have brought some of my favorites for you, right here, right now.

Man Titty Monday meets Casting Perry.

Th beautiful man at the top of this blog was one of my first choices for Perry, and I know you know who he is if you are on this website. He is a little bit more bulky than what I want for Perry, and he has been building more muscle lately, so he ahs fallen a bit off the radar, but the fact that I found him laying on a large black horse made me very happy.

Say hello to Jed Hill photographed by Michael Downs.

Quickly while we are on the subject of larg black horses and beautiful men how about Chad White and his Friesian. Friesian’s have a very special role in my novel, the hero breeds them. Why? Look at that horse. What horse you say? Oh sorry, it is behind the naked man. (so sorry - there are no chesticles here.)

So moving on back to casting. This image. THIS IMAGE. Which I loved so hard I even shared with Pamela and the gang on Facebook, killed me. Dead. Why? The saddle is On him. On. Him.

This man’s name is Steve Boyd and I am enamoured with him. I need to sell a WHOLE lot more books to be able to afford him in my studio, but as of this moment, he is my ultimate Perry. But let me show you why:

Sun God

Sassy beach bum

Brazen beach bum

Just plain raunchy.

Attitude. He brings it in spades. Some models are kinda…blah. This guy has personality. I know that’s what you’re looking at right now, his personality. Right?

Anywhoo, because Mr. Boyd is so popular for (DUH) reasons, I continue to look for Perry. Starting with the saddle, I decided to see who else tried that bad boy on and OH MY. This was sent to me by Kati over at Romancing Rakes , who loves to help me with my casting via twitter.

Yeah. Oh my.

Then there was this guy and his sexy boots. Do you love boots like I do? Because I love boots.

Say hello to Bryce Thompson

Well. That’s an awful lot of chesticle for one post isn’t it? I suppose I should save some for another time.

Catch up with me anywhere. I’m around and love to talk Man Titty.



Excellent MTM Jenn! HOT! HOT! HOT! So kind of you to share with us!

angela said...

No better way to start the week then with hot, sexy man pics! Thanks Jenn!

And THIS is why I get out of bed on Monday mornings!!

Crystal said...

Wow I do love a man in a saddle! Great way to start off Monday!

I love that the saddle is on him...ON HIM!! :)

Good reading ~ Escape by Fiction :)

Thank you ladies!! I have so much fun finding these guys, but it doesn't mean as much unless I can share.

And is ON. HIM. LOL! *dies*

Thanks again Pamela see you this weekend! Is anyone else going to RomCon? Because if you are, find me. I'll introduce you to my cover model who is coming out to the Con from California. ;)


Jenn and Pamela ~

Excuse me while I hop in a cold shower! I swear if I fall out of this chair. one. more. time. I'm going to have to stop visiting you (not going to happen) or get a new chair (much more likely).

I like the boots but the bow is H.O.T.

Your job is a real stinker, isn't it?

Tiffany :0)

Oh Jenn! You make me so happy! LOL! LOVE, LOVE that smile! Woot!

@Tiffany you wouldn't believe how many people I've heard hit the floor. (um, never myself ;) pfft)

@Hillary isn't it a great smile? Couldn't he be a fabulous Victorian Rake? CAN YOU SEE HIM in a cutaway?! (and out of it?)

Great lookin' horse! Oh, the guy? Yeah, he's hot, but can he ride?
Clare Austin

Scrumptiously hot scenery, Jenn. I stumbled onto MTM and what a treat. I seriously love you for sharing and I don't even know you.

I already own all of Pamela's books so I thought I'd show some love by buying, The Rake and the Recluse (via Nook even if I'm truly a print-ho at heart). Just a token to be sure but you're a new-to-me author and I'm a book a day reader across most all romance genres.

To think that you actually get up close and personal with some of these studs actually gives me a case of the vapors;) *snort*

Thank you Nancy!! What a great complement. You'll have to track me down and let me know what you thought of it. I love to hear from everyone, as an artist it only helps me grow, both the good and the bad.

And I love to share. Actually, might cook up one more post from my recent trip to Cali with Derek himself. The star of my book. HA CHA!! Hot stuff. :)
