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.

Who’s ready for seven hours of listening to Jake Landon trying to cope with his way-too-tempting ranger partner Kurt?
Fire on the Mountain is now out in audio, for your listening pleasure. Finn Marlow really gets Jake’s worries and moods, and heh, I’m really looking forward to hearing what he does for the commando scene. Great voice for this story! For this series–because Dreamspinner is bringing the other Mountain books to audio.
Get your audio book from Dreamspinner, Amazon, or from Audible!
Today’s the big day for the Spanish translation of Fire on the Mountain! Fuego en la Montana (I still can’t make that tilde) is available on the Dreamspinner New Releases page.
Jake and Kurt’a first book is now available in Spanish for readers who’d prefer to read about Jake y Kurt. Since I now have a novel that I wrote in a language I only partially understand, here’s my chance to learn more. 😉
Mil gracias to translator María Ángela Cuenca Alcaraz, who worked very hard to maintain the spirit of the original in this new version.
Tomarse un descanso de los estudios, disfrutar de las Montañas Rocosas de Colorado, combatir un incendio de vez en cuando. Eso es todo lo que Jake Landon esperaba cuando se inscribió para ser un ranger. Hará equipo con algún hombre viejo de montaña malhumorado; patrullarán los parajes en un camión cisterna; hablarán tres palabras al día, y el viejo malhumorado no será atractivo en lo más mínimo. Un bosque nacional es lo bastante grande para ser el armario de Jake, que pasará su tiempo libre pescando.
Pero el viejo malhumorado resulta ser Kurt Carlson: seguro, competente y con experiencia. También es joven, vivo, amable, y considera la ropa algo opcional cuando se trata sólo de dos chicos en la naturaleza. Compartir una pequeña cabaña con esta tentación andante atenta contra la cordura de Jake: ¿está enviando señales, o simplemente siendo Kurt? ¿Y cómo reaccionaría Kurt si descubriera que su nuevo compañero quiere prender un fuego de otro tipo? Jake está aterrorizado: tienen que vivir juntos durante cinco meses sin importar lo que pase.
Las chispas que vuelan entre los guardabosques podrían incendiar los árboles, pero se necesita un fuego feroz para hacer que Jake y Kurt admitan el calor entre ellos.
Go visit Stumbling Over Chaos, where you will find an ebook of Blood on the Mountain up for grabs to some lucky commenter. Jake and Kurt fans, this one is all new! Not yet a Jake and Kurt fan? You can start here without a hitch–the books stand alone.
I also thought I’d give away a paper copy of Blood. And because I have several paperbacks of Fall Down the Mountain, I thought, hmm, let’s offer one of those too. This is where I discover that the ebook editions of both books are already on Goodreads, but the paperbacks are not.
No big, I tell myself, I can add those bad boys in like the author I am, and kewl, I do. They’re all combined with the ebooks, although for some reason one of the covers doesn’t show in all views. And then I hit the “list giveaway” button, which drags the ISBN from the catalog listing. Description, tags, dates, tum te tum, all added–I hit List.
And then it tells me “This ISBN is not listed in our catalog.” :headdesk:
I’ll try again tonight after it has a chance to propagate through the system.
Snow on the Mountain will be out from Dreamspinner in August, just in time to heat you up and cool you off. Reece Dante’s set them on a ski slope for a cover and we’ve written fresh blurb, to go with the spiffy new text and editing. What do you think?
Champagne powder snow, gorgeously groomed slopes, and elegant hotels draw the expert and the wealthy to the exclusive Wapiti Creek Ski Resort, but for Jake Landon and Kurt Carlson, the lure is work. A novice skier, Jake’s been assigned to run the bunny lift, but Kurt’s afraid he’ll be stuck shoveling snow all winter. Instructing at a private ski school should be his dream job, but it brings giggles and sideways glances among their new friends.
All summer, Jake and Kurt were alone in the wilderness. If Jake wanted to stay in the closet, it didn’t matter. Now they have to navigate a relationship in public, where the five-year-old twins who’ve adopted Jake as their ski buddy are as big a nuisance as the ski patroller who has a crush on him. Would-be friends, vicious coworkers, and the perils of the mountain could mean the end for Kurt and Jake, but their biggest danger comes from each other.
Bonus story: Mistletoe on the Mountain
Jake’s agonizing over what to give Kurt for their first Christmas together—he knows what Kurt wants most can’t be gift wrapped.
