She’s seeking a fresh start in Colorado. There’s just one problem. The cottage she’s supposed to move into is already occupied. Will she kick the current tenant out on the street, or will they find a solution they can both live with? Find out in Lori Wilde’s Rocky Mountain Heat.


In the wake of a devastating loss, we oftentimes find ourselves nursing a broken heart. It’s scary to make ourselves vulnerable again and learn to open our hearts to others. After all, no one wants to leave their soft underbelly exposed.

In the case of attorney Jillian Samuels, she’s lost everything, including her job and her heart. When she inherits a cottage in the Rocky Mountains, it seems like the perfect time to start something new. But when she shows up at her new home, she discovers it’s already inhabited by one of the most gorgeous men she’s ever seen.

When architect Tuck Manning’s wife became ill, he dropped everything to take care of her. After her death, however, his entire world caved in and left him with a gaping hole in his heart. So, when Jillian appears on his doorstep saying she owns the place, he’s not prepared to lose his home too!

In Rocky Mountain Heat, Lori Wilde throws these two characters together to see if they can overcome their initial enmity or learn to blaze new trails together. Whether they continue as friends or soul mates remains to be seen. Yet as they explore the future’s possibilities, it reminds all of us to embrace change and adapt.

In this sweet and touching story, Wilde proves why we must choose to connect with others, particularly after loss, and just how rewarding it can be. After all, we need human interaction to truly live. If you enjoy stories where enemies learn to bury the hatchet and open their hearts to romance, you’re going to love Rocky Mountain Heat. Enjoy!

NOTE: This novel was previously published as All of Me.
