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 LINE is out!


Hard Line 1800x2700

HARD LINE is out!

Hard Line (Cobra Elite, #5) is out both in ebook and paperback!

Kindle, Nook, Apple Books, Kobo, Smashwords, Paperback

This time, Thor Isaksen is headed to Antarctica with two other Cobra operatives on a death-defying mission to recover components from a crashed military satellite before they fall into hostile hands. The only thing colder than austral winter is the heart of the traitor who wants Thor and astronomer Samantha Park dead.

It was nice to write about the coldest place on earth during a record-breaking hot summer here in Colorado. At least I could imagine being cold. I'm not sure it made me sweat less, however.

Here's a description of the story:

A woman dragged into danger…

Dr. Samantha Park’s life is shaken when her best friend and research partner dies barely two months into their eight-month stretch at the South Pole. She hasn’t begun to face her loss when men from Cobra International Security arrive to recover sensitive military components from a crashed satellite—and ask her to come with them. As a scientist, she has always been suspicious of the military, and flying across Antarctica in austral winter is more like suicide than a rescue mission. But when she hears what’s at stake, she agrees to help and is forced to put her trust in Thor Isaksen, the tall, broad-shouldered Dane who leads the Cobra team.

The only man who can keep her alive…

Thor served as an elite soldier in Afghanistan and spent two years as part of a Danish spec-ops unit patrolling sea ice in the Arctic. He’s used to the cold and constant darkness. That’s why he’s been tapped to lead this mission. Under orders to do whatever he must to keep a dangerous weapon from falling into enemy hands, he’s prepared for every scenario—except one. Samantha, with her blue eyes and brilliant mind, takes him by surprise. She’s confident in her abilities as a scientist and yet so unsure of herself as a woman. Stuck at the station with his team until the weather clears, he can’t ignore the growing attraction he feels for her even if she’s the last thing he should be doing on the job.

A killer who will destroy them all…

As temperatures drop to one hundred below, the heat between Thor and Samantha flares out of control. But a killer is lurking on station, someone with an agenda that threatens not only the lives of every person there, but also global peace. It will take all of Thor’s skill and strength to stop the murderous traitor—and keep himself and the woman he loves alive.

I hope you come to love Thor, my first Danish hero, and Samantha as much as I do.

Some good news!

My younger son, Benjamin, proposed to his longtime girlfriend, Courtney, on Aug. 6 while on an 18-mile hike from Bear Lake to Grand Lake that took them over the Continental Divide. And she said YES!

They are radiant and happy, which makes me happy, too. I am thrilled for them both. It was wonderful to have something beautiful to celebrate in the midst of the hardship that has defined 2020 for so many of us.

Congratulations, Benjamin and Courtney! You've made both of your families so very happy.

What's next?

In response to my last newsletter, some of you write in to say what you'd like me to write next, and historical romance was at the very top in terms of votes.

I haven't decided what I'm writing next, but it could well be a new historical unrelated to my previous series or something set during the Revolutionary War in the Colonies (Blakewell/Kenleigh), or even some kind of crossover that brings a MacKinnon man together with a Kenleigh woman.

I would love to write Malik's story, too, and possibly give Gabriela (Hard Edge) and Holly Andris (I-Team/Seduction Game) a novella together.

At this point, I'll have to see what the Muse has to say. In the meantime, it's nearing harvest season on our little urban farm. I've been busy with food preservation — pickled beets, pickles, peach jam, herbs, sour cherries. We've got about 50 tomato plants and are expecting a tomato tsunami soon.

Stay safe out there! Be kind. As always, thanks for subscribing to my newsletter.

All my best, 
Pamela Clare
