Ah, how I
love a good snowstorm! We’ve had a crazy winter here, in Toronto. So. Much.
Snow. I guess it’s not a surprise then that I tend to love writing and reading
stories where the hero and heroine are stranded together because of the
weather. It’s something I never get tired of-a blazing fire, a cozy cabin, a
hero that will do anything to make sure the woman with him is safe.
Being in a
dangerous situation also reveals a lot about character. While I like my
heroines strong and independent, it’s imperative that the hero (whether he’s a
CEO, rancher, or whatever) can be calm, cool, and very collected. Who wants a
hero who balks under pressure or flails around, clueless as to what to do
during an extreme situation?
Rancher’s Second Chance, the hero, Cole is a rancher. This man is comfortable
in almost any situation and isn’t afraid…of the weather
at least. But Cole is afraid of giving his heart a second time. He doesn’t
think he’d survive if he loves someone again and then the unthinkable
happens…Melanie, city-girl, makes him question everything. When a blizzard
strands them together in the Colorado mountains, Cole realizes that Melanie is
a woman with a secret past and he’s drawn to her. When the storm is over, Cole
knows this is just the beginning…
Victoria has a new book out:
Widowed rancher Cole Forrester is all about running his family's ranch and guarding his heart. The last thing he's looking for is love, but when his little sister can't make it home to handle some of her wedding details, he's forced to entertain the event planner, Melanie Simms. Melanie is everything he's not even remotely interested in: she's high-society, complicated, and high maintenance. But when he's stranded with her at his remote cabin in the Colorado mountains, he realizes he's seriously underestimated her. She's hiding something about her past from him, but despite everything, he finds himself falling for the last woman he ever expected, and the first woman to make him want to give his heart and risk everything...
