Fire on the Mountain

Fire on the Mountain is back!

Jake and Kurt are back!

Charli Childs, of Cosmic Letterz, did her magic and now we have covers for the newest edition of Fire on the Mountain.  I swear this pose of Kurt’s is right out of the prologue scene, where he’s standing in the spray and, just incidentally, tormenting Jake.

If you’ve read the Dreamspinner version, you’re up-to-date on this edition. There are no changes of significance in the story. You still have the choice of ebook or paperback, and the audio is still available, and under my control, except for getting the previous publisher’s info off. Working on that.

The only other change is that the Mountains will spend a term in KU, as they’ve never been enrolled there. The books will be coming out at intervals as I get them ready. There are five novels, and once they’re back up, I’ll uncork a new story on you. My trusty beta readers are helping me get it ready.

I’m so glad to get Kurt and Jake back up!

Fresh out of college, Jake Landon’s heading to the mountains for a season as a forest ranger. A gap year before returning to school might give him enough time to sort out his residency and his sexuality—he’s deep in the closet and a complete rookie. Some crusty old partner who speaks three words a day won’t entice him.

Except his partner turns out to be Kurt Carlson: confident, competent, and experienced. He’s also young, hot, friendly, and considers clothing optional when it’s just two guys in the wilderness.

Sharing a small cabin with this walking temptation is stressing Jake’s sanity—is he sending signals, or just being Kurt? How would Kurt react if he found out his new partner wants to start a fire of a different kind? Jake’s terrified—they have to live together for five months no matter what.

Enough sparks fly between the rangers to set the trees alight, but it takes a raging inferno to make Jake and Kurt admit to the heat between them.

Get your copy at Amazon- buy or read in KU.

Revving up for reissues

Due to what can only be called a monumental muddle, some of which is mine, it’s taken me a while to get my Dreamspinner titles back up and running.

Success is on the horizon!

My cover artist has been busily crafting some lovely new faces for the Mountain books, and the novels are pretty well nailed down.  Found some hotties, she did.

Starting this coming Friday, February 29, they’ll be coming back up!

Here’s a little teaser:

Yes, that’s Kurt! Quite the hunk, no wonder Jake’s smitten. He’s equally Rawr on the Fire cover, but the shadows on the teaser worked out strangely and I only want you guys to see him at his very best. Which means the whole cover. Can you wait until Friday?

So let me give a little shout-out to Charli Childs, who did her magic to put faces on these books.

So, we’re on our way back into the Rockies, not just with these stories, but with more to come.

New paperback, this time in French

What fun! Jake and Kurt are off to have adventures in French.

It’s very odd to have written a book and be completely unable to read it. This might be my big opportunity to learn a new language.

Fire on the Mountain in French

Look what’s on the Coming Soon page at Dreamspinner!  Kurt and Jake, or is that Kurt et Jake? have been available in French in ebook form for a while now. But what if you like the feel and smell of paper, and the delectable rustle of the page as you turn to find what happens next?

Fire on the Mountain, as Brasier sur la Montagne, will be in available in print come June 20th.

The nice folks at Dreamspinner will save you a copy.

Fire in French!


Once again, I have a book I’ve written in a language I don’t understand. Jake and Kurt are back, this time in French.  Love is love, especially when it’s l’amour.

French language readers, I hope you enjoy! Available for preorder, to be delivered November 4th!

Les Montagnes, tome 1

Faire une pause dans ses études, profiter des Montagnes Rocheuses du Colorado, combattre un incendie ou deux. C’est tout ce que Jake Landon souhaitait faire quand il s’était inscrit comme garde forestier. Il s’attendait à trouver comme partenaire un vieux montagnard grincheux. Ils auraient patrouillé les étendues sauvages dans un camion-citerne, échangé trois mots en une journée et le Vieux Croûton n’aurait rien eu de séduisant. Une forêt nationale semblait assez grande pour permettre à Jake de rester au fond du placard. Il pourrait passer le temps en pêchant.

Sauf qu’au lieu d’un Vieux Croûton, il se retrouve en équipe avec Kurt Carlson : confiant, compétent et expérimenté. Il est aussi jeune, sexy, amical et trouve que les vêtements sont une option dans la nature. Partager une petite cabane avec cette tentation sur pattes va mettre à l’épreuve la santé mentale de Jake – est-ce qu’il essaie de lui faire passer un message, ou est-il juste Kurt ? Et comment Kurt réagirait-il s’il découvrait que son nouveau partenaire veut allumer un incendie un peu différent, cette fois ? Jake est terrifié – ils vont devoir vivre ensemble pendant cinq mois, quoiqu’il advienne.

Le courant passe tellement entre eux qu’ils pourraient mettre le feu aux arbres, mais il faudra un véritable brasier pour que Jake et Kurt admettent qu’ils n’ont pas chaud seulement à cause du feu.

Histoire courte bonus : Déluge dans la Montagne

Bien avant qu’il rencontre Jake, Kurt Calson avait escaladé le Yosemite avec son meilleur ami, Benji. Mais après une tempête qui les avait piégés à mi-hauteur de la montagne El Capitan, Kurt doit accepter que leur amitié n’est pas ce qu’il pensait.

Now at Dreamspinner, and soon at the major etailers. Coming November 4th.
