ROCKY MOUNTAIN ROMANCE is Book seven in Vivian Arend's
Pack Ranch series. Even though this book is part of a
series and also the first book I've read by Vivian Arend,
was still able to enjoy ROCKY MOUNTAIN ROMANCE without
having read the previous stories in this series. However,
since I enjoyed it so much, I look forward to reading the
other books -- particularly Mitch and Anna's story. So
of the supporting characters draw my curiosity and make me
look forward to their stories to be told -- like Lee and
There are two major things going on in ROCKY MOUNTAIN
ROMANCE -- Melody's struggle to be taken seriously as a
professional vet, and Melody and Steve rekindling their
romance. For me, both stories are compelling and instantly
pulled me in. After reading the book description, I
that Steve would be your typical womanizer. I was happy
that he ended up being a much better and more complex
character than that. The Steve that Melody knew about a
year ago was not a bad guy, but he wasn't as mature as he
is now and he wasn't very present in his relationship with
Melody. I love Steve's introspection, his ability to see
things about himself he wants to change and that he puts
that into practice. From the moment he meets Melody again,
he gives her the attention and space she needs, as well as
offering a shoulder to lean on, and seeing to all her
sexual and emotional needs. The extremely spicy and erotic
encounters they have in ROCKY MOUNTAIN ROMANCE are very
The other thing that makes ROCKY MOUNTAIN ROMANCE so
entertaining are the fabulous, three-dimensional
characters. Vivian Arend makes each character in ROCKY
MOUNTAIN ROMANCE just as interesting as the two main
characters and has them contribute greatly to the overall
story. Steve's family plays a big part in this story, and
getting to know them helped define Steve. The banter
between the family members is fun and makes the story more
ROCKY MOUNTAIN ROMANCE is a character-driven and extremely
hot romance. Steve is the total package -- caring, sexy,
funny, and he's a singing cowboy too. He and Melody fit
well together and you can't help but root for them.
looking for a story with both sex and substance will love
ROCKY MOUNTAIN ROMANCE. I eagerly await the next
installment and will hunt down the earlier ones.
It took a spectacularly embarrassing break-up to knock
Moonshine Coleman off his lazy butt. In the ten months
that night, he’s changed his ways. Now that Melody’s back
town, it’s time for this sweet-talking cowboy to convince
her to get back in the saddle with him.
A return to her veterinary position in Rocky Mountain
was always in the cards for Melody Langley. Getting back
together with Steve? Never part of the plan. He had lots
potential but zero ambition, and there’s no way she’ll
accept anything less than a man who can keep up with her,
and out of bed.
But the new-and-improved cowboy is impossible to resist,
Melody issues a challenge. Three months to prove he’s
reformed. Three months of Steve orchestrating one sexual
indulgence after another—wicked distractions from
boys’ club Melody faces at work and Steve's growing
He’s got one shot to prove with more than words what’s in
his heart and soul.
Warning: Fifty percent less angst, twice as much
filthy-talking, dirty-daring cowboy. Get ready for a whole
lot of make-your-knees-weak wooing from a man intent on
proving he’s got what it takes, and the woman ready to
him way past his limits.
