An unforgivable disappearance…

Four years ago, Jennie Brooks and Sheriff Brae Colton were engaged to be married—then Jennie disappeared without a word.

Leads to a mysterious reunion…

Brae hated Jennie for deserting him just as they were set to begin their life together. But when he finds her badly injured in a hit and run accident on a snowy mountain road, he can’t deny the love he’s never forgotten—until she regains consciousness with no memory of her identity, or what they once shared.

Where love holds the key to everything…

Brae wants to know why Jennie’s come home. Despite everything, she’s still the woman he fell in love with in high school—the woman he’s falling for again. But when the bullets start flying, his first priority is to protect her and catch her would-be killer. And if they can’t find a way to restore her memory soon, they may both end up dead.

Jennie gazed out the passenger window as Brae steered the SUV through downtown Eagle Ridge. Ever since they’d left the hospital, he’d been tense, his eyes constantly shifting and taking in the vehicles around them.

“Do you think we’re being followed?” she asked finally.

“Probably not, but I don’t want any surprises.”

She stayed silent then, letting him concentrate. A lock of hair hung over his forehead, and she had an almost irresistible urge to brush it back. The muscles in his face were tense, his lips pressed into a thin line.

Those lips… Her thoughts strayed back to the kiss they’d shared in her hospital room.

Obviously they’d kissed before, and more than likely they’d done a lot more than kiss. She didn’t remember those kisses, though. His kiss from a half hour earlier, she’d never forget. Something about the way he held her, the way his mouth slanted over hers, the heat pooling in her belly when his tongue had touched hers…it felt so familiar, so right.

“You look like you’re thinking hard,” he said, his baritone voice filling the interior of the car.

She felt her cheeks heat. If he only knew where her thoughts had taken her.

“Remembering something?”

Oh, yes. She remembered every detail of the kiss they’d just shared. Although she would like to know whether the memories of his kisses back then were as exciting and breath-stealing as the reality of the one they’d just shared. She doubted that was what he was asking, though.

I am SO not a winter person. I love spring and summer – heat, sunshine, flowers blooming and the world filled with vivid colors.

But winter is coming, and there’s nothing I can do to stop it. I live as far south as possible in Canada, but it’s not far enough south that I don’t have to deal with sub-zero temperatures, snow and ice for several months a year.

In my attempt to survive yet another winter without being thoroughly miserable, I’ve decided to look on the bright side. There has to be one, right?

So here are my top three things to do to take the chill off while the snow swirls outside.

1. Curl up in front of a roaring fire with a mug of hot chocolate and a good book. I grew up without central heating, so we had a fireplace in every room. The distinct smell of wood burning, the crackle of the flames and sitting close enough that my shins get singed all bring back heartwarming memories of my childhood. Add a good book to escape the cold weather and chocolate. What’s not to like about that?

2. Make soup. To me, soup is supposed to be steaming hot, so when it’s blistering outside in the summer, I can’t bring myself to make – or eat - soup. But once the temps drop, let me loose in the kitchen. There’s always a pot of soup on the stove. It’s hot, comforting, and the best part – most of the time, it’s healthy.

3. Knit. Nights are long in the winter, so it’s a good time to work on a new project. I can’t knit in summer because my hands perspire and the yarn sticks. In winter, though, there’s always an afghan or a sweater or something warm and cozy on the needles.

Her Rocky Mountain Guardian takes place in Colorado in the winter, but Brae and Jennie aren’t like me. I hibernate until the snow is gone, whereas they’re outdoorsy people. But at night, they, too, snuggle in front of a fire and sip on hot chocolate. But instead of a book, well, they have other ways to occupy themselves

What about you? Are you a winter person, or are you like me, count the days until spring?

Author Bio:
As a little girl in Scotland, I loved reading the words in books, and using those words even when I had no idea what they meant. My favorites were consecrate (my version of concentrate), and puncture (meaning temperature).Within the pages of those books, I lost myself in the fantasy worlds the authors created. But I had no idea that someone – a real, live person – was writing the stories that enthralled me. And it never occurred to me that I could write stories, too.

When my family left Scotland and settled in Canada, I began to write – not stories, but long, rambling letters to my grandparents. Looking back, they were really mini-novels, filled with my adventures and tales of growing up in a new country. In school, I loathed English class. So what was I destined to be? Yes, you guessed it. A writer.

It wasn’t until my children left home, that I started writing and seriously pursuing a new career as a published author. These days, I’m lucky enough to be able to combine my love of travel (thanks to my father’s wanderlust) and writing by personally researching the settings in my books.

Now, I live on a lake and I’m lucky enough to wake up to this gorgeous view every morning (it does tend to distract me from the computer, I admit).

When I’m not writing, I can usually be found wielding a pair of knitting needles or a pool cue. Oh, and dealing with that wanderlust thing …

Thanks for stopping by today Margery!


  1. Hi, Margery - I agree about the roaring fire and a good book. My favorite thing to do is curl up under an afghan in front of a fire and read. That's about the only good thing about winter, IMO.

  2. I'm a Michigander so I love winter! And I agree-there is nothing better than a warm fire and a great book! Add a cup of tea or coffee in there and life is good! Congrats on the release!!

  3. I hate winter, too, here in Colorado! I like to read a lot more in the winter. In the summer, there's just too much to do.

  4. I'm still crocheting a baby blanket that I started almost 30 years just keeps getting bigger and bigger. I'm not a big winter person either, but I love being warm, so I'm going to put on a pot of soup, curl up with a blanket and your book and really get into the winter mood since it's getting COLD here in GA. Thank you for a great post and REALLY can't wait to read your book!!

  5. Sharon, thanks for stopping by. I've decided bears have the right idea - hibernate until spring.

  6. Thanks, Jennifer. You're like my hubby. He loves winter, ice fishing, hockey, all those things that just make me shiver.

  7. D'Ann, Colorado is so beautiful that at least you have gorgeous scenery to look at, even if it is cold.

  8. KT, thanks for visiting. Cold in GA? Surely you jest :) Guess you wouldn't want to have to make an afghan in two weeks then like I just did. Hope you enjoy the book!

  9. I'm not a big fan of the cold weather. I live in a state that the weather changes on an hourly basis *or so it seems*. I like curling up under a blanket, a cup of hot chocolate and a good book.

  10. I'm a fall person, Margery. It's way too hot in the South to like summer, and way too damp and cold in the winter. A fire in the fireplace in our southern winters, now that works well :-)

  11. sound like a deep book.I'm a Spring and Fall type of person.

  12. only entering for 2nd prize :)
