Over to Victoria now...


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?

In The 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...

  4. Looks like a great story. I like to see characters in the worst situations. There's the tension, plus seeing what they're made of.

    1. Thanks so much Medeia! Yes, difficult situations really challenge people to see what they're truly made of.

  5. Hi Nas and Victoria .. I like the sound of the book .. older man holding himself in check, yet seemingly wanting to find out about this woman ..

    Ghastly weather you've been having in north America - a year ago we were snow-bound too .. thankfully this year, after some dreadful rain, we're relishing Spring now .. cheers to you both - Hilary
