Rainbow Awards – Rocky Mountain Freedom

By Nicole


ROCKY MOUNTAIN FREEDOM has been nominated as a finalist in the Rainbow awards in the Bisexual Romance category!

2014 Rainbow Awards will be announced December 8, 2014.

I’m so pleased. But honestly? I’m even MORE delighted that there have been a lot of readers who have shared with me that while male/male romance isn’t usually their reading choice, or for some people, reading a permanent threesome was a reach for them, but that they really enjoyed Travis’s story, and that it made sense for him (and Cassidy and Ashley) and that they were glad they read it. <= that’s believing in a happily-ever-after for ALL.

Thanks for being so awesome, and open hearted. Because love is love, and everyone’s story is different.

Flashback Friday – Rocky Mountain Romance

By Nicole

Can you believe we’ve gone through all of Viv’s books already? This week we are flashing back to just a few short weeks ago to the most recent Six Pack Ranch book, ROCKY MOUNTAIN ROMANCE.

Cover- Rocky Mountain Romance


Title: Rocky Mountain Romance

Heroine: Melody Langley – She’s returned to Rocky Mountain House to continue working as a large animal vet, and has ZERO intention of rekindling her relationship with Steve. They’d tried, it didn’t worked- time to move on.

Hero: Steve Coleman – The oldest of the Moonshine Coleman clan, he was hit hard when Melody dumped him. He’s spent the last 10 months making himself into a better man. He’s willing to go to any lengths to win back the one woman who stole his heart.

Tidbit: I loved returning to Rocky Mountain House and dipping more deeply into another branch of the family. (Yes, I will get to Jesse’s story. Now, hush ;) )

Part of what I love so much about the Six Pack Ranch is how the family mixes it up. That’s what happens in big clans–you go somewhere, and you’ll see the exact people you were hoping to avoid!

And can I mention that pitcher of beer? No further spoilers, but someone mentioned they were tired of hearing about the beer. Yup. So were Steve and Melody. That’s why they’ll still be hearing about it when they’ve been together for 50 years.

Because that’s what family does. They torment those they love. :D


Here is one of my favorite quotes:

"I'm going to take you so far past your fantasies your feet don't touch the ground."

Flashback Friday – Moon Shine

By Nicole

Today we are flashing back to the final book in the Takhini Wolves series, Moon Shine.

Cover - Moon Shine


Title: Moon Shine

Heroine: Amy Ryba – Secret Alpha to the other pack in Whitehorse, she’s determined to take revenge on Evan. If that means taking control of both packs, she’ll do it.

Hero: Evan Stone – Alpha of the larger Takhini Pack and just as laid-back as his rambunctious wolves. He’s been looking for his mate, and never expected his past to come back to haunt him. Together, they have a lot to work out, but a lot to look forward to as well.

Tidbit: I loved and hated writing this final book in the Takhini Series. I had planned from the start that this would be the end of this adventure, and all along I’d been dropping hints about Evan’s mate. I love Amy–and she’s someone I very much respect. Every time they interacted–two strong, determined Alphas–I realized more and more how much she was the perfect mate for him. Not one who would let him bowl her over. Not someone he’d have to coddle, but a real mate–and a partner.

I think it was the best possible way to finish the series!


Here is one of my favorite quotes:

Quote: "If you stop right now, I swear I will duct tape you to the center of the street then organize a stampede of wild caribou." - Amy

Flashback Friday – Love is a Battlefield

By Nicole

Today we are flashing back to the second book in the DreamMakers series, LOVE IS A BATTLEFIELD.




Title: Love is a Battlefield

Heroine: Pepper Wilson – Home from college and looking to start her adult life, the last thing Pepper wants is to rely on her big brother and his friends to help her find a job. But Jack can’t seem to let her out of his sights.

Hero: Jack Hunter – Having Pepper work at DreamMakers is turning out to be better than he expected. However, keeping his hands to himself is getting harder and harder every time he and Pepper are in the same room together.

Tidbit: Book 2 written with my buddy ELLE, and the best thing I can share? We have so much fun with these books. Have you ever done something that’s work, but when you’re finished, you feel totally refreshed? That’s what writing with Elle is like.

And it’s not much of a tidbit, but reminds me that I hope all of you have people like that in your life. Because we need BFFs in this world!


Here is one of my favorite quotes:

Am I any good in the bedroom? I don't know, Pepper. You tell me, am I a decent kisser?
