Share the Love: My Rocky Mountain High

Wednesday, April 21

Monday was the official release day of Vivian Arend's newest installment in her Six Pack Ranch series, ROCKY MOUNTAIN HAVEN.  I first discovered Vivian and her books when I read ROCKY MOUNTAIN HEAT (book #1 in this series).  I loved it so much that I emailed her the morning after I finished it to profess my undying love, and to find out when the next book would be coming out.  If you've not read it then you are really missing out my friends....I'm talking six mouthwatering cowboys people!  ROCKY MOUNTAIN HEAT was one of my favorite reads from 2009 (click here for the complete list), and was one of the books that started my love of cowboy romances.  I mean how can you not completely melt into a puddle of lust with inspiration such as this:

I'm not sure who Vivian's actual inspiration was when she wrote about Daniel, the hero in ROCKY MOUNTAIN HAVEN, but if he was anything like this cowboy Muse it's no wonder she was inspired!

Welcome to the Six Pack Ranch, where learning to live again takes some sensual twists.

Beth Danube has escaped to a small Alberta town to make a new start for herself and her three little boys. Her emotionally abusive husband may be dead and buried, but so is her heart. What she doesn’t want is another man in her life—not now, maybe not ever. Yet when her libido reawakens after ten years of unsatisfactory sex in the missionary position is any woman strong enough to turn down sex-in-boots, Daniel Coleman?

The middle child of the rowdy Coleman boys, Daniel’s the quiet one who has always subdued his desires and acted as peacemaker. His powerful attraction to the young widow takes him by storm, and he’s willing to pursue her until they both find satisfaction—in and out of the bedroom.

Only Beth isn’t sure she’s ready to cross the line. Becoming friends with blazing hot benefits means she’s still the one in control. Letting her heart trust again? She isn’t that brave—or foolish. Daniel is going to have to be mighty convincing to help her overcome the past.

I love Vivian Arend's contemporary romances, but I think she is more popularly known  for her "Wolfies".  If you are interested in reading Rocky Mountain Heat (book #1), or any of her other books, My Bookstore and More is still offering a 20% discount on your entire ebook order when you use coupon code "shinynew". They don't have Rocky Mountain Haven listed yet, but since they have the first book, Rocky Mountain Heat, I would be surprised if they wouldn't eventually get Haven.  All Romance also has her books including her futuristic erotic romance, Claiming Darryn, published with Ellora's Cave, but doesn't have Haven yet either, however it is available for purchase at the publisher Liquid Silver Books.

Vivian's having a Red Hot reader contest going on to celebrate the release of Rocky Mountain Haven, with links to other cowboy goodness.  You can enter to win and check it all out on her blog.

My question to you is, who's your favorite cowboy romance hero and why?

Share the Love is a weekly meme hosted by Seductive Musings every Wednesday. 
  • Every Wednesday post whatever it is that you love on your blog or website.
  • Then leave a link to your post in the comments on the weekly Share the Love post at Seductive Musings. If you don't have a blog, that's ok you can still share the love in your comment on the weekly Seductive Musings post.
  • What can you share...well that depends on what you love :) Here are some ideas: a new blog or website, a great recipe that is a taste bud triumph, new shoes or purse that you seriously can't afford but lust after anyway, a great love story like the ones from When Harry Met Sally, a love note to someone special in your life (or wish was), a book you just adore and can't wait to share with someone, a song or CD that plays on repeat until it's worn out, poems, pictures, videos, or even baby giggles :) I think you get the idea.

One of my favorite cowboy books and hero's is Heartbreaker by Linda Howard. I love the hero John Rafferty he's a alpha hero that doesn't take anything off anyone but he also has a soft side. I've read this book so many times I need to buy a new copy of it.

Great post, and great photos ;) Some of my favorite cowboy romances are by Stacey Kayne--her Wild series is especially yummy!

I think one of my favorites is Asa from Promises Linger by Sarah McCarty.

I just love everything about the big guy!!!

He's a gentle giant to his woman but his enemies worst nightmare.

He's what I call a Man's Man....a man that is not afraid to take hardworking, knowledgeable, faithful, trustworthy....A leader other men look to for guidance.

My FREE Kindle Quest

I've wanted a Kindle for what seems like forever, but haven't been able to afford it (and that's saying something since I can justify the cost of just about ANYTHING that I really want). I've tried winning one in one of the many giveaways that have taken place over the couple of years, but with no luck :( So I've decided to take matters in hand so to speak :) I've now decided that I am going to accumulate enough Swagbucks from my Swabucks searches to buy in essence my new Kindle will be FREE...funded entirely by my internet searches done on Swagbucks. I'll keep you informed of the Great Kindle Quest below (in case you're interested....if not feel free to just skip over this part, but really who wouldn't be interested in a FREE Kindle?)
Goal: $119
Current Swagbucks Amazon Gift Card balance: $90.00
If you'd like to learn how you can earn Swagbucks and earn your own Amazon Gift Cards to buy books, a Kindle or other merchandise sold at Amazon contact me and I would be more than happy to tell you how I plan to go about it. (just so you know you can earn both and gift cards on this rewards site)
