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!

What readers are saying about TEMPTING FATE

Thanks so much to those of you who helped make the launch of Tempting Fate so successful. I’m thrilled that you enjoyed Chaska and Naomi’s story and am already working on the next Scarlet Springs novel. It’s been very touching to hear how many of you feel at home in this fictional world — and how many of you laughed until you cried over the “jalapenis” scene.

If you missed the release, you can still grab your copy, or start with Barely Breathing, the first book in the series, which is only 99 cents. All books in the series are available in ebook and in print.

Here’s what readers are saying about the story:

"Pamela Clare is a gifted writer, but this story puts her over the top. The knowledge and nuance of understanding Lakota culture, the passion and pain of finding your true half, the beauty and ugliness of human nature-- it's all there."
—Gem, five-star review, Amazon, verified purchase

“Chaska is a real hero, and I loved how that was told in relation to his heritage and what he was raised to believe. Naomi is a woman with so much courage yet vulnerable and I can totally relate to her difficulties in asking for help. All the characters in this story, and this series, are so well-drawn it feels like they really live in a real town called Scarlet Springs … I recommend the whole series.”
—M. Sayre, Amazon verified purchase, 5-star review

“Tempting Fate is an incredible story. I learned so much about the Lakota people while immersed in a can't-put-down romance! Pamela Clare is amazing, as always.”
—Purple Cow, Amazon verified purchase, 5-star review

“This latest book is my very favorite in this series. I loved Chaska and Naomi together. The gentleness, caring, and passion Chaska had for Naomi was wonderful ... Naomi is a courageous woman, who was dealt a crappy hand at birth but got the life she so deserved in the end. I am truly fascinated by all the Native American traditions so eloquently explained throughout the story, and it made for a nice change in contemporary romance.”
—Sanneke, Amazon verified purchase, 5-star review

“I hate to pick favorites.... because I love alllll my books... But every now and then, a story gives me goosebumps when reading it, makes me want to start all over again as soon as I'm reaching the last chapter.
Tempting Fate was one of those books. I loved it.”
—Gail, 5-star review, Amazon paperback
