HER RANCHER RESCUER marks my first book for Harlequin’s AMERICAN line. When I found out I’d be moving out of Romance and into American, I was a little discombobulated. But I really think that in general, things work out if we look at them as opportunities and adventures. And let me say: so far so good. I’ve had great fun writing my Americans (there are more coming your way in a few months’ time!).
My heroine in HER RANCHER RESCUER hasn’t really been out of Cadence Creek, so for her to travel to Montana with a man who is practically a stranger is quite a leap. And that’s not the end of her adventures. Jack owns a ranch that caters to corporate team-building, so there are always fun activities going on and a lot of firsts for Amy.
I had a ton of fun writing this story. I will say, I have never experienced riding behind a dog sled first hand, but a pal of mine did and helped me out. There was snowshoeing, sleigh rides, spa days, romantic nights. Amy had a job to do, but Jack made sure she experienced things too. More than she really bargained for, it turns out.
While there are lots of winter activities, one that I HAVE done that I haven’t written about yet is zip-lining. I still kind of hope that’s going to show up in a book. J I was terrified. And after I stepped off the platform for the first time, I LOVED it! I wanted to go again and again.
I do like the ideas of adventures. Life is an adventure all on its own. There are ups and downs, bumpy and smooth rides, but there are also exciting, steal-your-breath moments.
What was your last steal-your-breath moment? Post a fun comment and be entered to win a digital copy of Her Rancher Rescuer!
HER RANCHER RESCUER, February 2014
Small-Town Girl, Big-Time Crush
Amy Wilson longs to escape the pointed barbs and knowing looks that come with having a certain reputation in a small town. A temp job with CEO and rancher Jack Shepard seems to offer a way out, if only she can stay focused on her goal.
Former world-class athlete Jack is as relationship-phobic as they come, so he’s not worried that the soul-shattering kiss he and Amy shared will affect their working partnership. She’s a girl who’s going places, but Jack starts to wish that maybe he could tag along for the ride….
