A hot contemporary romance from the author of the acclaimed I-Team series…
Lexi Jewell left Scarlet Springs twelve years ago, vowing never to return to the small Colorado mountain town where she grew up. Now, here she is—over thirty, out of a job and with little choice but to move back in with her eccentric father. Lexi knows it’s just a matter of time before she runs into Austin Taylor, her first boyfriend and her first heartbreak. She’s determined to show him she’s over him—until he steps out of a pickup truck and back into her life, looking sexy as hell in his mountain ranger uniform.
As far as Austin is concerned, Lexi can turn her snazzy little convertible around and drive back to Chicago. After all, she ripped his teenage heart to pieces and turned her back on the town he loves. But from the moment he sees her again, he can’t get her out of his mind. Even her smile messes with his head.
When an evening of conversation turns into something else, Lexi and Austin agree to be friends—with benefits. But as Lexi starts making plans to return to the big city, Austin realizes he’ll lose her a second time unless he can show her that what she’s searching for has been right here all along.

Barely Breathing, Colorado High Country, Book 1, Pamela Clare
Barely Breathing, the first book in Ms. Clare’s new contemporary romance series proves once again her amazing skills as a writer and her meticulous attention to detail. Set in a small Colorado mountain town full of colourful characters and, yes, easy-on-the-eye men in uniform, already I want to know more about the lives and stories that start to unfold in this page-turner first in series novel.
The book is full of humour, friendship, camaraderie, and some very sexy interludes, all centred around a story of love lost and found. In and around Lexi and Austin’s story, we are treated to a touch of suspense and a great look into the world of climbing and the skills and danger involved in high country rescue. Ms. Clare never fails to educate whilst entertaining with her writing.
If you love contemporary romance and are looking for a great new series written by an author whose historical and romantic suspense series have already proven her worth, give this one a try.
