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!

Untamed 2.0 is out today! CONTEST

I’ve been so busy working on Defiant, that it completely slipped my mind that today is RELEASE DAY for Untamed 2.0.

I’ve blogged lots about it, and there are excerpts below and on my website, so if you want a sneak peek you’ve got it.

This version has all the cut pages restored and the original death scene for the villain which was cut from the first published edition of the novel and happened “offstage” and in a very different way. The original way I wrote it was much more satisfying.

I’m very excited to find out what readers who read the original version think of the new version, particularly that death scene.

Untamed is available at in print and on Kindle, on both in print and for Nook and at bookstores.

To celebrate the book’s release — and to celebrate having finished Connor’s story at 1:04 AM —  I’m giving away three signed copies of the book.

Just comment below to be added to the drawing.

I have really enjoyed your books, even when they tear me apart inside. They are so real.

Yay! You go, Pamela! Looking forward to the new villain-gets-his-just-deserts scene. Cause he really deserves it.

Rachel said...

I had always wondered why that particular villain died offscreen, it seemed a bit anticlimactic. Is it wrong for me to want to read his new demise with great glee? =)

Joanne said...

How have I missed your books? And you're a Colorado author to boot?! I loved "Mohicans" even before the movie, and would love to read this "Author's Cut" this winter.

Alas, if I don't win, or actually even if I do, I'll be rummaging the library stacks for the rest of your works soon. Thank you for having a contest!

Dolores Fuentes said...

Love the MacKinnan Brothers! Love the first book can't wait for the 2.5!!!!! I also can't wait for Connor's book to be realeased!

Kay said...

I've read the originals and they were wonderful. The 2.0 will be all that much better. I'm trying to decide if I should read them now or wait closer to Defiant release date read them back to back, which is traditionally how I like to read trilogies. Decisions decisions. But 2.0 is on my Kindle and the paper version is somewhere between KS and TX. So much for the added advantage of pre-orders and Prime around the holiday season.

Chelsea B. said...
