"A romcom perfect for fans of Christina Lauren's Something Wilder and Sarah Morgenthaler's Moose Springs, Alaska, about a city girl lost in the wilderness with only a grouchy mountain man to guide her...and there's only one sleeping bag.

WHY DATE A MOUNTAIN MAN? Because he knows how to pitch a tent.

TROPES- Tall, dark & (adorably) grumpy hero charmed by heroine despite himself; quirky small mountain town; gorgeous Colorado Rocky wilderness; only one sleeping bag; slow burn to clothes melting off spice; extreme competence; a few (somewhat) minor explosions.


When Dahlia Weathersby's sister disappears on what should have been a simple day hike, Dahlia immediately heads deep into the Colorado Rockies to find her. Knowing she'll never survive the mountains alone, she convinces the local hermit-adorably grouchy survival expert Winston Dane-to be her guide. All it takes is a good helping of Dahlia's charm...and just the teeniest bit of blackmail...before she's got all six-foot-something of him wrapped around her finger.

Winston Dane should know better than to follow beautiful city girl Dahlia deep into the mountains, but it's not like he could let her go alone. She may be as clever as she is unsettlingly hot, but the Rockies are no place for the uninitiated. And, fine, maybe being around Dahlia makes him forget why he'd decided being the local grouch was the only route for him in the first place.

Every step is a new adventure...and a new coal in the simmering fire of their attraction. But with everything the wilderness has to throw at them, it'll take more than charm and some city girl ingenuity to make this trek anything but a disaster waiting to happen...and an adventure she'll never forget.

""Fish Out of Water reads like a sexy Sherlock Holmes, and is the most fun I've had in ages. The only hiking I want to do is up Winston Dane's thighs."" - Lana Ferguson, USA Today bestselling author
