Doesn't he get that she's blind?

Barrel racer Amberley James wants to join the premier rodeo circuit more than anything, but she faces the ultimate hurdle when she loses her eyesight to a rare genetic condition. All she'd ever wanted seems out of reach.Giving up is the only option...until her best friend and local hero, Jared Cade steps in. The last thing she wants is Jared's help. But his persistence at encouraging her to get back in the saddle is ridiculously annoying. And undeniably inspiring...


Persistence and bravery for the win! With the next book in her Rocky Mountain Cowboys series, Karen Rock brings us the story of a young lady who thought she had it all until a devastating medical condition arose that she felt ended all of her hopes and dreams. Love and support of family and the best friend a gal could have rallies around her and sets out to show her that life doesn’t end just because you are now faced with more challenges. It’s uplifting and inspirational to anyone who has ever felt less than. A well-built plot with many familiar characters. The storyline drug a bit in the beginning as a lot of inner thoughts were being portrayed rather than dialogue, but overall an enjoyable, uplifting read!

Champion barrel racer Amberley James has the world on a string … or so it seems when everything is going her way and she can see the possibility of making all of her dreams come true being in reach … and then it all comes crashing down around her. She knew she had been having some weird things going on with her eyesight, but she was never expecting the doctor to tell her that she had a genetic disorder that was making her go blind! Her life is over. She can’t possibly ever do anything she loved again.

Rancher and football star Jared Cade has been best friends with Amberley for years. They push each other to be the best that they can be, they offer support throughout life’s ups and downs, and they always cheer each other on from the sideline. He knows something’s going on with her, but she’s kept him in the dark as to what it is … until it can’t be hidden any longer. Jared is devastated for her naturally, but he refuses to stand by and watch her hide herself away from the world in shame and give up the dreams she’s worked so hard for! He’ll do anything he has to in order to get her out there dreaming big again.

Christmas at Cade Ranch
(Rocky Mountain Cowboys #1)
by Karen Rock
Contemporary Romance
November 7th 2017 by Harlequin Heartwarming

The Christmas they never had.

James Cade has one priority: keep the family ranch running smoothly in the wake of his younger brother’s death. With Jesse’s ex, Sofia Gallardo, and her young son, Javi, stranded at Cade Ranch over Christmas, this task just got a lot harder. The longer Sofia and Javi stay, the harder it is to imagine the ranch without them. James couldn’t save his brother from his inner demons, but he can give his nephew a secure future. Maybe more—if he can figure out how to trust Sofia, and stop feeling like he’s betraying Jesse. Because trying to stop thinking about beautiful, determined Sofia is impossible.


About the Author

In addition to her work as a Young Adult romance novelist, she’s now an author for Harlequin’s Heartwarming line and thrilled to pen stories that moms can share with their teenage daughters. She’s loved Harlequin books since she spent summers going through her grandmother’s Presents books that she passed along in paper grocery bags each year. As half of the writing duo J.K. Rock, Karen also pens young adult romance. When she’s not busy writing, Karen enjoys scouring estate sales for vintage books, cooking her grandmother’s family recipes, reinventing her gardens to suit her moods and occasionally rescuing local wildlife from neighborhood cats. She lives in the Adirondack Mountain region with her husband, her very appreciated beta-reader daughter, and two Cavalier King cocker spaniels, who have yet to understand the concept of “fetch” though they know a lot about love.
