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

Writing, writing, writing, writing

Sorry to have left you with a boring blog about my garden for so long. I’ve been trying to stay focused on finishing SKIN DEEP.

Sadly, I haven’t succeeded. Between work I needed to get done for Rock*It Reads — an investment of time — and some extra time-consuming stuff for my opinion column this week for the paper, I lost a couple of days.

Then an old lady crashed into my car in a parking lot, and that has taken up a lot of time. I was fine. She was fine. Her car was fine. Mine has about $1,000 worth of damage that she is going to cover. But spending time on the phone with insurance companies, going to get an estimate for repairs, and talking with her ate a chunk of yesterday. So aggravating!

It’s one thing if I waste my time. It’s something else if other people waste it.

SO, I’m putting the universe on notice that this is it. No more. I’m staying offline and ignoring email until this story is written.

As far as the story itself goes, I have the rest of it in my head. It just needs to come out. I think fans of the I-Team will really enjoy it.

Of course, once I finish it, it will finally be time to write “Marc and Julian Make a Beer Run,” which will be included in the back of the novella as an extra treat for I-Team fanatics. (You know who you are.)

Have a great Friday and weekend, everyone! I hope to be back on Monday celebrating.

“Marc and Julian Make a Beer Run”? Only good things can come from a title like that!!

Good luck writing! (And if you're reading this comment before Skin Deep is done, you should get back to work!)

Can't wait to sit in on another conversation with Marc and Julian. No other author has ever produced a bromance as cool as this. Edge of my seat with anticipation.

Beth Sanzo said...

Sorry to hear that. And I must thank you for your hard work Pamela Clare. I get a kick out of your books! excited for Skin Deep.

Sorry to hear about your accident, Pamela. I'm glad you and the other driver are okay, though, and I hope it didn't aggravate your neck issues.

"Marc and Julian Make a Beer Run"??? *Squee!* Love their "bro-mance". They both crack me up. I'm excited! ^_^

Thanks for all your hard work and take care of yourself.

Oh dear! Glad everyone involved is ok. Good luck with the writing.
