ROCKY MOUNTAIN HOME is the eleventh and final book in
Vivian Arend's Six Pack
Ranch series. As someone who is a huge fan of this
series, I am sad to see it end but excited to see what
Vivian Arend comes up with next.
ROCKY MOUNTAIN HOME has all the elements that have made this
series so amazing -- a yummy cowboy hero, strong family
relationships, and realistic and likable female characters.
Jesse Coleman and Darilyn "Dare" Hayes have a one-night
stand and Dare winds up pregnant. One thing I really love
about this story is that there is no recriminations or
ugliness between Jesse and Dare. As soon as Jesse learns
about the pregnancy from Dare, he takes responsibility and
they work together and develop a friendship with some sexy
Jesse Coleman is a man with a lot of emotional baggage but,
even as he struggles to come to terms with his feelings of
guilt, he never takes out his frustration on Dare. For
readers who might be new to the series, Vivian Arend does a
thorough job of explaining Jesse's estranged relationship
with his twin brother and the reason for it. Jesse is a
complex character -- inwardly tormented at times over the
separation between himself and his family, yet outwardly
charming and fun to be around. I love the chemistry between
Jesse and Dare. Dare is such a realistic character because
she's not prone to exaggeration or feigning an emotion.
While she doesn't want to rush into a marriage of
convenience because of an unexpected pregnancy, Dare is
pragmatic enough to get to know Jesse and not fight their
ROCKY MOUNTAIN HOME is about finding strength in family, and
finding friendship and true love when you least expect it.
Vivian Arend brilliantly succeeds in creating a story with
emotional resonance, great characters, and super sexy
shenanigans. The theme of "family" is huge in ROCKY MOUNTAIN
HOME", and Dare's family proves to be just as tight as the
Colemans are. I eagerly await the first book in Vivian
Arend's Heart Falls series.
The FINAL NOVEL in the bestselling SIX PACK RANCH series by
New York Times Bestselling Author Vivian Arend.
There’s no distance you can run to escape the past.
Too stubborn to face his sins, Jesse Coleman bolted from the
Six Pack Ranch, only to fall straight into the arms of a
beautiful stranger. Twelve hours later, the seductive
firebrand is nothing but a whiskey-laced memory—but one
powerful enough to convince Jesse tracking down his elusive
lover is worth the effort. Darilyn Hayes figured it was her
lucky night when the sexiest cowboy in Alberta interrupted
her annual drink-until-I-fall-over wake. At least
until four weeks later when she discovers she’s pregnant and
her one-night-stand is nowhere to be found. Still, as she’s
shared with her devoted blog readers, Dare has dealt with
life’s not-so-gentle surprises before. She’ll make it on her
When an internet picture gone viral leads to their reunion,
Jesse’s floored by Dare’s news. She’s very clear she’s not
looking for a commitment, but screw that. He’s going to do
the right thing by her and his unborn kid. The fact they lit
the sheets on fire is a bonus, but with a baby on the way,
both their lives are gonna change. Jesse’s got a ton of
family to reconnect with, including his estranged twin. Dare
holds family loosely—even though she loves them—because she
knows too well how fragile life can be. Between her and
Jesse, they’ve got enough baggage to open a store. But they
still have a shot at forever—if they’re willing to
fight for it.
This final novel in the series contains the following: A
sexy, dirty, cocky-as-hell prodigal son Coleman with massive
bridges to rebuild. A woman able to see to the heart of the
matter yet bold enough to speak the truth. A family of
extraordinary resolve and endless love. A wedding or two.
And babies—oh lordy, the babies…
