Welcome to New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Kristen Ashley's Colorado Mountain Series, where friends become family and everyone deserves a second chance.
Love is the greatest gamble of all . . .
Nina Sheridan desperately needs a timeout vacation. With a fianc?àö¬© who can't even remember how she takes her coffee, Nina wants some distance to rethink her engagement. Flying halfway around the world from England to a mountain town in Colorado should do the trick. But when she finds a gorgeous man at her rental cabin, Nina's cold, lonely adventure suddenly heats up.
The owner of the house, Holden "Max" Maxwell is surprised by the beautiful woman who turns up at his door. But when Nina becomes ill, Max spends days nursing her back to health. A private man with a broken heart, Max finds himself drawn to the strong-willed woman. Soon it becomes impossible for Nina and Max to deny their growing attraction to one another. Yet even as these two wounded souls think about taking a chance on a relationship, a secret from Max's past emerges-and threatens to end their love for good.
Ashley's first Colorado Mountain contemporary introduces readers to a unique hero a 21st-century mountain man whose tough exterior hides a vulnerable, caring heart. Nina Sheridan needs a break from her life in England with her fianc , so she books two weeks at a house in the Colorado mountains. After driving through a snowstorm and arriving in a feverish haze, Nina is upset to learn that the home's owner, Holden "Max" Maxwell, is in residence due to the rental agent's error. After he nurses her through her illness, the two engage in frequent bickering and intensely sensuous love scenes . Their romance is fraught with baggage from Max's previous relationships and mystery surrounding the murder of a local man. Nina and Max are affable protagonists, though Max's machismo sometimes overshadows Nina's sense of independence. Despite the novel's length, it moves at a swift pace with plenty of sizzling passion, romantic angst, and a touch of suspense.

I'm so glad I took a chance on this book.....it was amazingly well written! I felt the joy, awe, pain, heartbreak, emotion, suspense.... or I laughed out loud, on every page! I especially appreciated that it was a full story, and I didn't have to buy 2-3 more books to figure out "who dunnit" and how the story ended! Fast paced, loads of characters, suspenseful and romance!! This is a gifted storyteller ... loved this book, I'll buy more!!
