She's his...for now.

Samantha Kane is about to solidify her father’s legacy by developing sleepy Gold Mountain into the most profitable ski resort in the country. There’s one man standing in her way though. One very sexy, rugged man. When she shows up to convince Austin Reede to sell, she has no intention of hiding her identity. But with a body like his, she’ll take a few risks to get closer.

Austin was the fastest skier on the U.S. Olympic team, until he shattered his knee. Gold Mountain became his refuge—and now Kane Enterprises is threatening that home. When he meets Sam, he has no idea she’s the one to blame, he just knows the attraction between them is one he hasn't felt in years. A scorching hot one-night stand is just what he needs. Little does he guess that it will change everything…

Each book in the Men of Gold Mountain series is a standalone story that can be enjoyed out of order.

The best part of Make Me Stay, is the ending. It was just too cute.
I wonder how the book would have turned out if Sam would have introduced herself with her full name? Would there have even been a story?
Austin is a good friend to everyone in town. He's such a good guy, that he trust Sam without... ...more

I have a confession to make, when I was fourteen, I went skiing for the first time, and I was abysmal at it. I never went again. The reason why I bring this up is because the opening scene in this book is on a snowy mountain top and everyone is skiing... ...more

This is Book 1 in the "Men of Gold Mountain" Series and it was an interesting read.

Samantha and Austin are nice characters, the plot is interesting and it is well written.

Fun, immersive, and sexy as all get out. I don't know anything about skiing, but the descriptions in this book are so detailed and physical, I still really enjoyed the skiing parts.

Make Me Stay is well written with an interesting twist, this time around it's the female who's in the position of power over the hero. I applaud this twist in the interests of feminism and the modern, powerful, successful woman. I can't say that I connected that well with Samantha, though, but no... ...more

Sam and Austin had smoking hot chemistry. Their story was definitely filled with a whole lot of steam.

Sam grew... ...more

About the author

Rebecca Brooks

Rebecca Brooks lives in New York City in an apartment filled with books. She received a PhD in English but decided it was more fun to write books than write about them. She has backpacked alone through India and Brazil, traveled by cargo boat down the Amazon River, climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro, explored ice caves in Peru, trekked to the source of the Ganges, and sunbathed in Burma, but she always likes coming home to a cold beer and her hot husband in the Bronx. Her books are about independent women who leave their old lives behind to try something new--and find the passion, excitement and purpose they didn't know they'd been missing.
