I loved this book and I have to say, I thought Gabe was breathtaking. He is a tough cowboy with a soft underbelly, who has a way with kids. Of course, as a mom, Melanie is drawn to such a handsome, caring guy who takes her son under his wing, spending precious time with him and becoming a hero in his eyes. Or should I say, a hero in her eyes too! There were some great romantic scenes, including one at the kitchen sink, involving a knife and a fish. Very unique and oh-so-sigh-worthy! There is gre ...more

I fell so in love with the hero, Gabe, that I'm still sighing. A great strong on the outside, soft on the inside cowboy. I just adored him. And the heroine beautiful and wounded and putting her child first in every decision no matter the cost to herself. I read a lot and it's pretty common for me to finish a book and remember the story but not names...but Melanie and Gabe, and the bundle of action and fun, Melanie's son Jason will stay with me for a long time. And Gabe's got two brothers who've ...more

Heroes come in many forms in romance novels. They can be bad boys in need of redemption or men who have simply lost their way. But sometimes, they are rock solid men of integrity wrapped in a very handsome package. Rocky Mountain Hero may be the title of Audra Harders' debut book but it is also the perfect description of Gabe, the cowboy who takes "down on her luck" heroine, Melanie, and her son into his home and his heart. In this engaging story, it is easy for the reader to fall in love with G ...more

(sigh) Such an awesome book. Gabe, the hunky cowboy hero, is adorable. The heroine, Mealine, is equally adorable. Add her eight year old son to the mix and you get a great book. Low conflict - very much appreciated - and an epilogue. My kind of book! Moving on to book two in the series.

This debut novel by Audra Harders is a captivating read. Set in the scenic Colorado Rockies, the story features a single mom who gets sidelined by a broken-down truck on her way to a job interview. When a genuine Rocky Mountain hero rescues her and offers temporary housing and money to repair her vehicle in exchange for her help in organizing the town barbecue, how can she resist? Harders has created engaging characters that quickly work their way into your heart. The romantic arc is touching an ...more

Loved it! I loved all the characters, the town and all the residents! The plot was real to life and I love that her characters never became whiney over their struggles!

This one is about a single mom and her son who are on their way to her job interview when her truck goes off the road and crashes big time! She needs help, but doesn't have the money to fix her truck and start life in a new place, so when her rescuer offers to fix her truck if she just takes over helping with a barbecue, she gives in! Talk about a run-on sentence! She learns to love the town, the people, and of course, her rescuer. Very cute story! I can't imagine anything like that happening i ...more

The cover was great. The title was great. The synopsis was great. But in the end by page 70 I had to put it down. There wasn't enough deep POV or action to hold my attention. I wasn't enthused about the writing, either.

Well written book. I loved the characters and their romance. The setting was perfect for a gal like myself that likes westerns even though the book is set in modern day. I hope to read more of Audra Harders stories!

Great book. Melanie and Gabe are drawn to each other. Melanie and her son were given refuge and given opportunities by Gabe's family. Beautiful story

A sweet romance that definitely had me rooting for the hero AND heroine (and loving that little son of hers!). Delightful!
