Books – Ember Peak

Excited to announce EMBER PEAK, a series that has tons o’ stuff I adore: sexy silver-fox billionaires, cranky young cowboys, Chicago nights, and Colorado sunrises. Each full-length novel features heroes Tru Larkin and Jones Hudson, and each book has a happy resolution. (Because although there are cliffs at Ember Peak there are no cliffhangers!)


TRU SMOKE Ember Peak Book One! Available now on AMAZON!

tru-smoke_cover_ediedanfordWhere there’s smoke, there’s fire… Tired cliche or true story? Jones Hudson can’t wait to touch Tru and find out.

Growing up in Ember Peak, Colorado, Jones nurtured dreams as big as the Rockies. Why else would a flat-broke college student believe he has a shot with Truitt Larkin, the billionaire CEO of Larkin Corp? And, sure, Tru might own the fab, five-thousand-acre Ember Peak Ranch, where Jones is just the son of a ranch employee, but that doesn’t mean a future with Tru is doomed, does it? When he finally, finally convinces Tru to break his chiseled-in-rock no-sex-ever policy, Jones is sure smoke will never shroud Tru’s silver-flame eyes again.

But fire burns and dreams crash. And when Tru shuts down Jones’s hopes, Jones leaves Ember Peak—and a big chunk of his heart—for good.

Tru knows he’s responsible for fracturing his valued friendship with Jones. Indulging his attraction to the younger man was selfish and destructive—something he’ll always regret. When Jones returns to Ember Peak for a family wedding, Tru wants a chance to heal their friendship and give back to Jones the comfort of coming home. But sparks fly the moment they reunite, and they scramble to douse the passion that’s burned them both before. Yet a flicker of hope glows brightly, and soon they need all their courage to see their way to a future together.



TRU BURN Ember Peak Book Two Available on AMAZON now!

tru-burn_coverAs snow flies across Ember Peak, Jones and Tru are making their own kind of warmth, but a family secret could send a chill over their future plans.

Jones Hudson is ending the year the right way. He’s taking his sexy fiancé and his sweet dog on a fun road-trip to visit his mom’s new family. He’s found a groove with new friends at Ember Peak Ranch and his job at a local diner. And, best of all, he’s regularly basking in the flame-hot love of Tru Larkin.

But things go unexpectedly wrong when Jones uncovers news that may change life at Ember Peak forever. And when the secret detonates, the after-burn is more painful than he or Tru could have imagined.

Tru knows it might be too late to save the season, but he’s determined to move forward with his planned surprise for Jones. When a blizzard knocks out power at Ember Peak, he’s forced to rethink his ideas on giving and forgiving.

Maybe it’s the gift of a simple vow that will burn brightest on a dark, starless night.

Riding off into the sunset isn’t as easy as it looks on the silver screen…
Turns out in real life there are boulders, pitfalls, and irksome little details like wedding-planning, sibling-soothing, and figuring out how the heck to combine one humble household with one that’s over-the-top huge. Jones and Tru have learned how to navigate treacherous trails in their relationship, for sure. But in the midst of planning their big day, “big challenge” takes on a whole new meaning.
