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!

It's Raining I-Team! Plus a giveaway!

1. The ebook edition of Breaking Point (I-Team Book 5) has been marked down to $1.99 for one week only on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iTunes, and Kobo! 

2. First Strike (I-Team After Hours), the super-sexy prequel to Striking Distance (I-Team Book 6) is only 99 cents and getting great reviews.

3. Striking Distance (I-Team Book 6) will be out on Nov. 5 and is still on sale at special pre-order prices on Amazon for $4.79 (paperback) and $5.99 (Kindle)!

That’s what I mean when I say it’s raining I-Team. You wait more than a year for me to have a new novel, and all of a sudden there’s a new novel, a new novella and a HUGE markdown on one of the most popular and critically acclaimed books in the I-Team series.

It’s the perfect storm of I-Team, an I-Team orgy, an I-Team extravaganza.

It’s a chance for those of you who haven’t read Breaking Point to get caught up on the series before Striking Distance comes out.

Breaking Point was honored by Amazon as one of the Top Books of 2011 and has 99 five-star reviews on Amazon. It also received a starred review from Publishers Weekly. Apart from that, it’s known for its completely drool-worthy cover. I want you to know that it was my idea to make the model all sandy and dirty. You’re welcome!

You can read an excerpt or head on over to take advantage of the sale for yourself or for a stubborn friend who hasn’t listened to you when you’ve told her she needs to read this series. Grab it before the sale ends on Oct. 30. Here are the links:

iTunes :

First Strike, the erotic prequel to Striking Distance, just came out on Monday, A 17,400-word novella, it tells the story of how Laura Nilsson and Javier Corbray, the journalist heroine and Navy SEAL hero in Striking Distance, meet and share a mind-blowing weekend of no-strings-attached sex that changes both of their lives forever.

This was my first foray into writing erotica, and I had a lot of fun with it. For those who are a bit skittish about reading something labeled “erotica,” let me just say that it does not involve dinosaurs, step-fathers, animals of any kind, whips, fluorescent light bulbs, chains, more than two people, or anal sex. What else is there, you ask? You’ll just have to read it and find out!

At 99 cents, it’s a must-read for those of you who are waiting breathlessly for Striking Distance. So far, the cover has gotten my ads for it banished from Facebook — beheadings are apparently okay, but people in underwear embracing are not — and readers seem to enjoy looking at it. I guess that matters more to me. Right now, the story has 24 five-star reviews on Amazon, and it just came out Monday.

You can read an excerpt or follow these links to one-click your heart out.

Smashwords (all ebook formats, including Kobo and iBook):

Last, but certainly not least, is Striking Distance (I-Team Book 6), which will be out on Nov. 5 — less than two weeks from today! 

This full-length novel tells the rest of Laura and Javier’s story, carrying them through to their happily ever after. One of the most difficult books I’ve ever written, it took almost a year and half for me to finish the story. I was thrilled when I learned the book had received a Top Pick from RT Book Reviews

Striking Distance will be released in mass market paperback, ebook, and audiobook on the same day. The talented Kaleo Griffith is once again narrating the story, so those of you who need a Kaleo fix to help you with your OKD (Obsessive Kaleo Disorder) are in luck!

Read an excerpt, or head over to one of these links to pre-order a copy. Amazon currently has a sale on pre-orders, cutting $3.20 off the paperback price and $2 off the regular retail ebook price.

Here are the links:

Barnes & Noble 
Powell's Books 

And there you have it — a harmonic convergence of I-Team. I hope it helps make up at least in part for the fact that I’m such a slow writer — and the fact that you’ll be waiting a while for the next I-Team novel.

To make this more fun, I’m giving away five more copies of First Strike! Just share the news, tell me where you shared it, and leave your email address below. I’ll pick five winners a day today, Thursday, and Friday!

Coming soon:
One last pre-release excerpt from Striking Distance.
