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!

SEDUCTION GAME — UK Cover Reveal



A lot has happened in the past few weeks. After discussing my concerns about the original release date of Seduction Game with my publisher, Berkley agreed to publish the ebook version in October and the print version in March. That’s a whole three months earlier.

I thought you’d like that.

So, ebook readers will have Seduction Game in their hands on Oct. 20, while those who want to wait for the mass market paperback edition will have it in early March. That's a lot better than making everyone wait till June!

I don't have details for the audiobook release yet, but I hope Tantor will match the October release date.

My editor made no changes to the book—no revisions—so the manuscript was sent straight into production. I put a lot of effort into crafting a good story, and I feel really pleased about that. Seduction Game is Holly Bradshaw's story. Nicknamed Horny Holly by her I-Team friends, Holly has her own unique way of looking at the world. As a result of her lifestyle she also finds herself in some unique situations-such as waking up in bed to find her date shot dead. But when she hooks up with her sexy next-door neighbor, she has no idea what he really is or where the relationship will lead.

Here’s the blurb from the back of the book for those of you who missed it:

CIA officer Nick Andris wants revenge. His last mission failed after a Georgian arms smuggler killed his lover. He's been tailing a woman for three weeks hoping she will lead him to his target. But there's a problem with the intel. Holly Elise Bradshaw is nothing more than an entertainment writer with a love for sex and designer clothes. Clearly someone at Langley made a mistake...

When Holly finds herself in trouble, the only weapons at her disposal are her brains and her body. But they won't be enough to handle the man who's following her. He's going to turn her world upside-down.
The ebook edition is already available for pre-order in the U.S., and will soon be available for pre-order in the UK. The UK cover is already out.

Watch for the U.S. cover reveal soon!

Soul Deep, an I-Team novella, set for a late June release 


In Skin Deep, we met Jack West, owner of the Cimarron, a big ranch high in the Rocky Mountains. A widower, Jack knows what it's like to love a woman deeply and too lose her far too soon. What he doesn't know is that life has a surprise in store for him in the form of FBI Special Agent Janet Killeen, whom he threw off his land about nine months earlier.

Some of you will remember Janet from Striking Distance. She spearheaded Laura Nilsson’s security detail until she was shot and badly wounded. Now out of rehab and trying to rebuild her shattered life, the last person she wants to see is Jack West. But when her car goes off the road in the middle of a blizzard, she's not going to refuse his help or his hospitality.

The story takes us back to the Cimarron Ranch, where we get to spend time with Chinook, Buckwheat, Baby Doe and the other horses and where Janet gets to sample Jack's amazing cooking. It also takes a look at how hard it can be to recover one's life after a tragedy like the one Janet endured.

This is my first time writing about an older couple. Jack is 63, and Janet is 45. I'm finding their maturity to be refreshing. Sex and love don't end at 29 or 39 or even 49. I'm 51, and I'd like to believe romance, love, and sexual fulfillment are as eternal as spring.

So many of you loved Jack in Skin Deep, and I hope you'll enjoy seeing him get his own happy ending. I plan on having the book ready by the end of June-that's just a couple of weeks from now.

Watch for a cover and release details! I’m aiming for June 23, but I’ve fallen a bit behind.
