Have You Been to Colorado? by Margery Scott #GuestPost #Giveaway

Tour Banner - Her Rocky Mountain Guardian
An unforgivable disappearance…

Four years ago, Jennie Brooks and Sheriff Brae Colton were engaged to be married—then Jennie disappeared without a word.

Leads to a mysterious reunion…

Brae hated Jennie for deserting him just as they were set to begin their life together. But when he finds her badly injured in a hit and run accident on a snowy mountain road, he can’t deny the love he’s never forgotten—until she regains consciousness with no memory of her identity, or what they once shared.

Where love holds the key to everything…

Brae wants to know why Jennie’s come home. Despite everything, she’s still the woman he fell in love with in high school—the woman he’s falling for again. But when the bullets start flying, his first priority is to protect her and catch her would-be killer. And if they can’t find a way to restore her memory soon, they may both end up dead.

The Book Excerpt

Her Rocky Mountain Guardian Cover

Jennie gazed out the passenger window as Brae steered the SUV through downtown Eagle Ridge. Ever since they’d left the hospital, he’d been tense, his eyes constantly shifting and taking in the vehicles around them.

“Do you think we’re being followed?” she asked finally.

“Probably not, but I don’t want any surprises.”

She stayed silent then, letting him concentrate. A lock of hair hung over his forehead, and she had an almost irresistible urge to brush it back. The muscles in his face were tense, his lips pressed into a thin line.

Those lips… Her thoughts strayed back to the kiss they’d shared in her hospital room.

Obviously they’d kissed before, and more than likely they’d done a lot more than kiss. She didn’t remember those kisses, though. His kiss from a half hour earlier, she’d never forget. Something about the way he held her, the way his mouth slanted over hers, the heat pooling in her belly when his tongue had touched hers…it felt so familiar, so right.

“You look like you’re thinking hard,” he said, his baritone voice filling the interior of the car.

She felt her cheeks heat. If he only knew where her thoughts had taken her.

“Remembering something?”

Oh, yes. She remembered every detail of the kiss they’d just shared. Although she would like to know whether the memories of his kisses back then were as exciting and breath-stealing as the reality of the one they’d just shared. She doubted that was what he was asking, though.

The Guest Post

Have you been to Colorado?
Margery Scott

Have you been to Colorado? If not, a trip is definitely worth the time. It’s one of the most beautiful states hubby and I have seen, and we only wish we’d had more time to spend there. We only had a few days, so we didn’t get to see everything and unfortunately I’m on vacation in Florida right now so I can’t even show you photos.

Here are five of the places/activities we enjoyed:

1. We took a trip to see the Red Rock Ampitheatre near Denver. The bright reddish-orange rock structures are pretty amazing – and huge!

2. One afternoon, we drove to the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs and spent a few hours touring the Chapel, the Falcon Athletic Center, Arnold Hall and the Honor Court, which contained many statues and aircraft. We were lucky enough to even catch a cadet parade. Quite an impressive place all around.

3. Visit a working ranch. There’s nothing like first-hand experience and seeing things like a blacksmith shoeing a horse up close to really give you a feel for how real ranchers live and work.

4. Look for gold. We took a mine tour – ok, not one of my wisest moves since I am a bit claustrophobic, but I did survive, probably because I was more interested in what the tour guide had to say about the history of mining. Afterwards, we got out gold pans and hunkered down by a creek to pan for gold. Is there gold in them thar hills? We didn’t find any, but we had fun anyway, and after ten minutes crouched by that creek, I realized I was definitely not cut out to be a miner back in the days before machinery.

5. If you’re brave enough (I wrote about my hair-raising road trip earlier), take a drive through the ski towns where the celebrities hang out. We’ve all heard the names - Aspen, Vail, Breckenridge, etc. Park your car and go window shopping along the streets and browse the boutiques and exclusive shops. You never know who you might run into.

We didn’t have nearly enough time to see all we wanted to see. Hmm…where’s my GPS? I think I’m ready to hit the road again.

About Margery Scott

Author Picture - Margery Scott
As a little girl in Scotland, I loved reading the words in books, and using those words even when I had no idea what they meant. My favorites were consecrate (my version of concentrate), and puncture (meaning temperature).Within the pages of those books, I lost myself in the fantasy worlds the authors created. But I had no idea that someone – a real, live person – was writing the stories that enthralled me. And it never occurred to me that I could write stories, too.

When my family left Scotland and settled in Canada, I began to write – not stories, but long, rambling letters to my grandparents. Looking back, they were really mini-novels, filled with my adventures and tales of growing up in a new country. In school, I loathed English class. So what was I destined to be? Yes, you guessed it. A writer.

It wasn’t until my children left home, that I started writing and seriously pursuing a new career as a published author. These days, I’m lucky enough to be able to combine my love of travel (thanks to my father’s wanderlust) and writing by personally researching the settings in my books.

Now, I live on a lake and I’m lucky enough to wake up to this gorgeous view every morning (it does tend to distract me from the computer, I admit).

When I’m not writing, I can usually be found wielding a pair of knitting needles or a pool cue. Oh, and dealing with that wanderlust thing …
