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!

HARD JUSTICE (Cobra Elite #3) is up for preorder


What woman doesn’t love a sexy Scotsman? I joke with my fellow authors that a Scottish accent counts as foreplay. How could I resist telling Quinn McManus' story?

McManus is a veteran of the British Special Air Service, a badass who now works for Cobra International Security. In the first two books in this series, we've seen that he has an interest in Elizabeth Shields, a former CIA analyst. But the two of them have never hooked up—and for a reason.

Here’s the story description:

Elizabeth Shields has always craved adventure. That’s why she went to work for the CIA straight out of college. That’s probably also the reason she feels drawn to Quinn McManus, a veteran of the British Special Air Service. The big Scotsman gives off a dangerous vibe that she can’t resist. Yet, resist she must. She and Quinn both work for Cobra International Security, which has a strict policy against hook-ups between employees, and she’s too much of a professional to date a coworker. She and Quinn can never be more than friends. But when his best buddy from the SAS is found murdered on the streets of Glasgow, Elizabeth will do all she can to help Quinn cope with the loss … and find the culprit. 

Quinn McManus escaped a life of poverty by joining the British Army. His fellow soldiers became his family, forging a bond stronger than blood. Now, with his best friend dead, he needs Elizabeth’s special skills to help track down the killer. He has no intention of getting physical with her. Rules are rules. But as their unofficial investigation heats up, so does the attraction between them. Still, he refuses to surrender. Because if they cross the line from friends to lovers, there will be no going back. 

But some battles can’t be won, and soon the passion between Quinn and Elizabeth ignites, hot enough to melt the cold Glasgow winter. As they move closer to the truth and to each other, they find themselves in the sights of a stone-cold killer, who won’t hesitate to destroy them both to keep a terrible secret. 

Hard Justice is set in Glasgow, which sounds like a great excuse to travel to Scotland to me. Sadly, my travel budget was blown this year when I went on my older son’s wedding cruise.

Hard Justice is up for preorder now and will be out on December 17, just in time for holiday reading. It’s my 30th novel, which feels like something of a milestone. 

You can grab your copy now for Kindle, Nook, and iBooks. Watch for it on Kobo and Smashwords soon. Hard Justice will be out in paperback on December 17, as well.

In the meantime, Colorado has sunk into a deep freeze. Outside, we’ve got a good nine inches of snow and temps of 6 F/-14 C and a windchill of -14 F/-25 C. We’ve kept a warm fire going in the woodstove, and the cats are loving it. Here they are taking up the entire sofa.
