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!

Congratulations! I had the pleasure to meet Cynthia Eden at a book fair and she was so sweet and nice! The best thing I like about parties is being to just have fun with friends. Doesn't matter what kind of party it is, as long as you got your good buddies with you, it can be an awesome time :D

Rose Fullana @kancitygirl said...

I like parties for the insight they give me into a subject, product, service, and in getting to know people better. It is great social action.

Julie said...

Is it bad that one of my favorite part of parties is watching my lush friends get hysterically drunk? I'm pretty much always DD, so that's my entertainment for the evening.

Tonya said...

Congratulations on your new release! I can't wait to read it.

I love people watching at parties. I'm not much of a drinker & it's fun to see other people act like fools sometimes. LOL

Hi Cynthia,

What I like best about a party is being around the people that are most close to me and and living it up with food and enjoyable activities.


Tina B said...
