Synopsis (Goodreads):
Innocence and passion are an addictive mix...

The dark-haired stranger next door triggers every protective instinct Trevor Coleman never knew he had. From the moment Becky Hall literally falls into his arms, the last man standing of the Moonshine clan doesn't even attempt to resist sweet temptation. Becky is beautiful, mysterious and heartbreakingly vulnerable…and he's a goner.

To escape the hell she was trapped in, Becky left everything behind but her courage. And for once in her life, good people step up to make a difference. A helping hand, a new job…a very attentive and libido–stroking neighbour. Now a new future awaits, one that shockingly includes sexual pleasure instead of icy pain, and a sexy cowboy who’s more than eager to show her the ropes.

Becky’s sweet smiles and seductive innocence draw him in like nectar, and Trevor knows one taste will never be enough. But with secrets growing thicker than a bumper crop, changing a life will take more than a new ID and a cowboy’s good intentions.

It's gonna take sacrifice to break these chains.

Warning: boy meets girl, boy falls in love with girl—all hell breaks loose. We’ve got a hero whose hands are tied in more ways than one. A heroine who wants to experience everything she's ever missed, and a family that needs to discover if its roots go deep enough to weather any storm.
Thoughts on Rocky Mountain Shelter: You know when you totally like a book and you're not ready for it to end. For whatever reason. Like, maybe you want to know if our hero's letter writing campaign bears fruit. Or something. I mean, I might be a little curious about that. Little bit. You know, just for closure and stuff. For the older generation of Coleman's. Because that would be cool.

Anyway. Becky and Trevor. Let's talk about them. Becky has some issues. And I like that not all her issues were tied with a bow by the end of the book. Which isn't to say we were left hanging. The important stuff was touched on and everybody was happy with where they were in the end. They might have a few things to keep working on, but isn't that life?

Trevor, honestly, is a doll. I got a serious chuckle out of his awkward sex talk with Travis. That said, I loved that he followed through on the advice he was given with a smile on his face. Like I said, the guy's a doll.

The Coleman clan is big and rambunctious and I liked seeing familiar faces. The revelations Trevor uncovered about the past make the closeness of the families even more poignant.

You know what? I like this family. A lot. They're fun and a little crazy and they're perfectly flawed. And that's a good thing.
