New Release- Rocky Mountain Freedom

By Vivian Arend

It’s seemed like a long time coming, but it’s finally here. A happily-ever-after that I’m very proud of for many reasons. Not only does this bring to light mysteries that have traced through the past 5 Six Pack Ranch books, Travis, Cassidy and Ashley’s relationship is something that reflects a truth I hope someday becomes commonplace.

Love is love. Family understands this.

This is also my 25th release with Samhain Publishing! Thank you, Crissy, Lindsey, Heather, Marty, Mackenzie, Jacob…and all the others who have worked so hard over the past years to help me get my stories to readers.

And to my editor of 24 of those books, Anne Scott… You help me so much in what I do. Your skills and your encouragement make a huge difference. I’m so glad I have you on my team, but more than that, I’m so glad you’re my friend. <3 <3 <3


Rocky Mountain Freedom
Six Pack Ranch, Book 6

Three hurting hearts. Too many secrets. One chance to conquer their fears.

Over the past year, Travis Coleman lost the two people he allowed closest to his heart. Both gave him ultimatums—then left. Hell if he needs that kind of pain again. Time to move forward without the friends he thought might save him from his dangerous cravings.

When Ashley Sims returns to Rocky Mountain House, her rambling lifestyle isn’t all she’s hoping to change. Travis snagged a piece of her, and while getting tangled in his issues again might be crazy, she hasn’t given up on him.

Nine months ago, Cassidy Jones walked away to stop his best friend from making a huge mistake. Temptation lingers, though, and when Travis shows up on his turf accompanied by a sensually uninhibited woman, the combination tosses fuel on the banked fire.

Passion flares among the three of them, as hot as the summer days. But are they willing to push the limits, and fight for love?

Warning: Dirty fighting, dirty talk, dirtier sex—secrets are coming out. Get ready for ménage a trois and cowboy-on-cowboy action, with ropes and crops and the kind of relentless love strong enough to set a man free.

Hi Angie!

Glad you enjoyed it! Travis’s story was 6 out of 10, so we’ve got time for Jesse and the rest of the Coleman boys.

I decided to write the girl cousins in separate series, so Anna Coleman’s book ROCKY RIDE is out in February as part of the Thompson & Sons series. The Whiskey Creek girls will have their own series as well.

But the boy cousins are all under the Six Pack Ranch. Steve (Moonshine) Coleman is next. Jesse will either be book 8 or 9- I have to see how things develop in the next book!

Hope that helps!

Kristine, I know the first 5 books were contracted for audio, but I haven’t heard yet for book 6. I hope Tantor picks it up as well, but we’ll have to wait and see!

And if you’d like, tell Tantor you’re interested, because the flow does start with them!!
