Heart of the Rockies Series by Sara Richardson - Blog Tour & Excerpt

More Than a Feeling
(Heart of the Rockies, #3)

Stop Running . . . and start falling

For Ruby James the Walker Mountain Ranch is her safe haven. Here in Aspen, Colorado, she can finally build a quiet life for herself without fear of her old one rearing its ugly head. Or so Ruby thinks. Any single woman would be happy to indulge a tall, dark, and curious cop-but the closer Ruby gets to him, the closer she gets to losing her newfound peace.

Police officer Sawyer Hawkins is no stranger to secrets. He's ready to leave town for good until a security threat brings him back to Walker Ranch, and Ruby's gorgeous green eyes soon have him second-guessing his decision to go. Her kindness and quiet strength awaken feelings he'd thought long buried, even as her reluctance to talk about her past worries him. The cop in Sawyer only wants the truth-but the man in him wants Ruby in his arms forever . . .

No Better Man
(Heart of the Rockies, #1)

When it comes to business, Avery King always comes out on top. So after a very public breakup, work is the perfect excuse to flee the Windy City for the gentle breezes of Aspen, Colorado. Her mission: acquire the land of a rundown mountain ranch. Avery expects an easy win . . . until she meets the rugged and irresistible rancher who won't give up his property without a fight.

Bryce Walker is stunned by the stubborn beauty determined to get what she wants. But what she wants is his last connection to the life he used to have. Bryce has plans to return the ranch to its former glory and no way will he sell his family home. Yet the more time he spends with Avery, the more her sweet touch makes him forget his painful memories. Now Bryce must decide whether living in the past is worth losing his future . . 

Something Like Love
(Heart of the Rockies, #2)

It's Gonna Be a Wild Ride

Ben Noble needs to do some damage control. Fast. His heart has always been in ranching, but there's no escaping the spotlight on his high-powered political family. Now the only thing that can restore his reputation is a getaway to the fresh air of Aspen, Colorado. Not to mention that the trip gives Ben a second chance to impress a certain gorgeous mountain guide. But Paige Harper is nothing like the shy girl he remembers . . . she's so much more.

Paige is serious about Ben, too: seriously annoyed that the playboy cowboy is using her mountain for his PR. Once upon a time, she fell for Ben's aw-shucks charm, but the fairy tale didn't end happily. Paige doesn't intend to let down her guard again. But keeping their relationship all business and no pleasure may be harder than she thinks-especially if the moonlight, the Rockies, and a certain irresistible rancher have anything to say about it...

Something Like Love

The woman didnt budge. She simply stared, the toe of her overpriced gold heel tapping.

Tension worked its way up Paige's neck, into her jaw. What was this ladys problem?

Before the woman could speak, the door whooshed open.

“Sorry.” A guy hustled over to where they stood.

Wait. Her heart squeezed hard then ramped up into overdrive because it wasnt just a guy. It was him. Him, him. Ben Noble. She shouldve averted her eyes to ease the panicked heat that surged through her, but he was even better looking than she remembered. Short, choppy light brown hair, hazel eyes lit with energy and intensity. He wore his jeans tighter than most of the guys she hung out with, but it definitely worked for him. Her gaze lowered to the floor and back up. Yep. Definitely worked.

He hadnt seen her, yet. He was too focused on the dark-haired beauty in the wheelchair. “Sorry about that,” he drawled. “Had to park clear out in no-mans-land.”

The woman directed her sweet smile at him. Well good, then. Maybe that would make it easier to spend the next week with him. Maybe hed finally found a woman who was worth a call the next morning…

“Mom was just making a scene.” The nice girl in the wheelchair scooted herself closer to him.

Paige let out a breath. So the girl was his sister. And…Mom? The Ice Queen was his mother? Well, that explained a lot. No wonder he had commitment issues…

“Wouldnt be a normal day if she didnt make a scene.” He finally looked over in Paiges direction, aiming that funny, spoiled-boy grin at her. But when his eyes met hers, the smile fell off and his face froze in shock. “Paige.”

She steeled herself against the way his lazy voice tingled up her spine. Nuh huh. No way. Not going there again.

He sauntered close enough that she could smell the subtle cologne she still remembered from their dance last year, sweet and spicy all at once.

She backed up a step, clutching the ceramic plates against her chest, trying to hold her heart in so it wouldnt leap out of her chest and land right in that mans hands. “Hello, Ben.” She cocked her own smile, but it definitely wasnt sweet.

Sara Richardson grew up chasing adventure in Colorado’s rugged mountains. She’s climbed to the top of a 14,000-foot peak at midnight, swam through Class IV rapids, completed her wilderness first-aid certification, and spent seven days at a time tromping through the wilderness with a thirty-pound backpack strapped to her shoulders.

Eventually, Sara did the responsible thing and got an education in writing and journalism. After five years in the corporate writing world, she stopped ignoring the voices in her head and started writing fiction. Now, she uses her experience as a mountain adventure guide to write stories that incorporate adventure with romance. Still indulging her adventurous spirit, Sara lives and plays in Colorado with her saint of a husband and two young sons. Her first contemporary romance, No Better Man, was released by Grand Central forever 2015.
