Top Ten Tuesday


Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018.

Genre Freebie (pick a genre and build a list around it! i.e., best/worst romances, non-fiction for travelers, memoirs for foodies, classics that feel timeless, romance novel kisses, science fiction that feels too real for comfort, women’s fiction for newbies, etc.)

This time is a Genre Freebie this week. So, I had a very short time to think what I want to choose. The world is in chaos right now because of COVID-19. So much of the world is in self-isolation and/or have to do social distancing or in lock-down. To help with the chaos in the world, I wanted to create a mountain retreat for you to escape to for a while. I hope this list helps you to provide an escape. The mountains are calling!


I went for a walk in the wilderness to find inspiration for my paintings. But after a few wrong turns, I found something else: him.
He’s like his mountain—strong and mysterious. He saved my life and offered to get me home. But when his hands touch me, I think I might already be there.

I left my life behind to carve out a new one. Alone. But the moment I see her, it’s like the first time I saw my mountain. I know I have to make her mine.
She came to my mountain for inspiration, but she just might be my muse instead.

Kings of the Mountain is a series of steamy, sweet, insta love short story romances. Check out BROCK if you like curvy heroines and alpha heroes who fall hard and fast while carving out their happily ever after.


I’ve been in love with him since I was a kid. He’s the man I use to measure all the others. Not one has held up.
So when he needs help at his lodge in the mountains for the summer, I jump at the chance to show him how good we can be together.

I’ve kept my distance for a reason. She’s too young. Too innocent. She’s my best friend’s little sister.
Now she’s on my mountain and in my home. It’s only a matter of time before she’s in my bed. She’s the one woman I can’t have, but I need to make her mine.


Tangling with a White Wolf—Best Christmas Ever, or Real Trouble?

Romance writer Candice Mayfair never missed a deadline in her life—until an accidental bite from a werewolf puppy turns her into an Arctic wolf shifter. She’s forced to isolate herself in the wilderness to cope with her unpredictable shifting while she works on her deadlines. After all, for Candice, Christmas is just another day.

Enter private investigator Owen Nottingham, a wolf shifter hired to find Candice so she can collect her inheritance. They have a real problem: she must arrive home in human form, and that’s not happening during the full moon. Besides, Owen has a new mission: to convince the pretty she-wolf her best move is to join his pack in time for Christmas…and to prove he’s the only wolf for her.


I came to the mountains so my daughter could heal.
Isolation. Refuge. Sanctuary.
An escape from the past.
I never thought it was a sacrifice.
Not until I met her.
Lying half-frozen in the snow, the storm raging all around us.
So fragile. So vulnerable. And the most beautiful woman I’ve ever seen.
She doesn’t belong here, but there’s no way I’m letting her die on my mountain.
I’ll save her, care for her, and when I’m done…I’ll let her go.
Until I see her with my daughter.
Until she leaves me burning with heat.
And I wonder whether I’ve been doing this all wrong.
Maybe what my scarred little girl needs – what she’s always needed – isn’t the mountain.
Maybe it’s the kind touch and sparkling eyes of a beautiful woman.
Maybe that’s what I need, too.
I know it’s not that simple.
She has a past she won’t talk about.
Mine is clouded with guilt and regret.
But every moment with her makes me think of the future – of a real family.
When our pasts catch up to us?
No f*cking way I’m letting that go.

Single Dad’s Cabin is a full length, standalone romance with a sexy mountain man, the haunted woman he saves and his sweet eight-year-old girl. No cheating or cliffhangers, and a Happily Ever After guaranteed. Includes a copy of Billionaire Baby Daddy as bonus content!

Trigger warning: This book contains non-explicit references to childhood abuse.

I just bought Lumberjack yesterday. I can’t wait to read it.

He hasn’t been with a woman in five years.
She hasn’t been with a real man … until now.
I’ve had enough of the crap that goes along with living in the city. So, I packed for a weeklong vacation in the mountains. Isolation in a cabin for the next seven days sounds like a good way to recoup and get my life back in order.
After getting lost while hiking, I stumble upon a cabin that has me questioning whether to ask for help, or if I should brave staying the night in the woods.
I left everything behind years ago after the woman I was with betrayed me. Now I work as a lumberjack and live my life as a recluse.
Being celibate for the last five years says a lot about my self-control, but I’m a man and have needs, and not giving into what I really want is hard as hell. But I can’t let myself get close to anyone, not even for a few hours. Getting close is how I got screwed over before.
As soon as I see Vivian, I know I have to have her. It’s been forever since I’ve had a woman. Because of a storm rolling in, she’ll have to stay with me overnight. We could do a lot of filthy things in that time.
I pride myself on my control, but when it comes to Vivian, I don’t know if I can keep my hands to myself.
I know I can’t.
I have needs, and it’s clear Vivian’s in need of a real man to help her unwind. I can certainly help her in that department.
Wanting: If you like OTT alpha heroes look no further! This hero has been celibate for five long years, so when he sees his woman he doesn’t bother trying to control himself. It’s as filthy as that sounds!


I was known in town as old money but lived off the land, a present-day caveman. They called me the town recluse, dubbed me a mountain man, antisocial. It was true. But then she came into my life and turned everything I knew upside down.

It started with Bailey getting lost in the woods and finding herself on my doorstep.
She was sweet and innocent, half my age, and I had no control when the arousal built between us that night.
It ended with me taking her virginity in a passion-filled night.
But then she was gone, and I should have gone after her, thrown her over my shoulder, and demanded she was mine.
Four years later and our paths cross again. I thought I was stronger, able to control myself, but where Bailey was concerned, there was no doubt she called the shots. She owned my heart.
She’d gotten under my skin in the best of ways, and I knew this time around, I wouldn’t let her get away.

It’s free on Amazon Kindle.


Struggling to survive on the streets of Paris, Genevieve will do anything to start a new life. She’ll even switch places with a King’s Girl, one of many penniless young noblewomen destined to be shipped to the savage French colonies. It’s a dangerous masquerade that comes with a high price: Once in Quebec, Genny will have to marry a stranger.


Leah Townsend, a recently orphaned heiress, flees Richmond after uncovering her fiancé’s plot to kill her after their wedding. Through God’s leading, she finds herself accepting a newspaper marriage proposal from a God-fearing young rancher in the Montana Territory. But when Leah arrives at the mountain ranch, she learns her intended husband was killed by a grizzly, leaving behind a bitter older brother and a spunky younger sister.

Gideon Bryant has lost too many people to the wild elements of these mountains—his parents, his wife, and now his brother. His love for this untamed country will never die, but he’s determined not to open his heart to another person, especially this beautiful Easterner who shows up on their doorstep.

But when an accident forces Leah to stay at the ranch for several months, can Gideon guard himself from a love he doesn’t want? Will Leah find God’s true direction for her life?

Double Dirty Mountain Men by Parker Grey


Rose is a sweet, innocent little flower… and we’re about to claim her. Together.
We’re rough, rugged, and rock-hard. Living alone on this mountain means fending for yourself, facing the elements, and handling whatever nature can throw at you.
Like a girl, in the middle of nowhere, half-frozen to death.
But Rose isn’t just any girl. She’s f*cking gorgeous, sweet as can be, and totally inexperienced. From the second we find her, we both want her – we want to take her, own her, possess her in every way we can and then some.
And we don’t mind sharing…
Her first time shouldn’t be with two hard, rough mountain men at once. But men like us can only hold back for so long.
This sweet, untouched girl is gonna be ours.

Double Dirty Mountain Men is a very dirty novella about two hard, rugged, rough mountain men who find themselves totally obsessed with the same girl! And don’t worry – as an MFM menage, all the attention is on HER.

If you’re looking for a cheesy, steamy, over-the-top dirty-but-sweet book, you’re in the right place!


They called him Big for more than one reason.
I had everything I could want in life. My own career, a house with property, and respect in my community.
But what I didn’t have was her.
Landry. Owner of the town’s cleaning service.
For five long years, I’d pined after her. I watched her from afar, thought only about her, hell, fantasized about Landry when I was alone. And for five years, I’d stayed celibate, because Landry was the only woman I wanted in my life in every way.
My self-control when it came to her should have won me a medal, but that tightly reined in desire had slipped and I was done holding myself back.
So I told her I needed her help—her talents in making my place livable. What she didn’t know was it was just to get her to my place, to tell her, show her she was always meant to be mine.
When I realized it was Big who wanted my services, I didn’t know if I could go through with it. I loved him, had for years, but I was inexperienced in all things romantic, so being honest and just telling him how I felt wasn’t an option. But when I found myself in his home… with him watching me, I knew I’d fail miserably at trying to act like I didn’t want him.
And when things come on hard and fast, I know there’s no going back. I’m about to give Big every part of myself, including my virginity, but then again, I know that’s what he wants.
Me, in his life, as his. Forever.

Most of these books are on Kindle Unlimited. Thank you.
