Image is everything to Zoe Larkin. She has spent the last several years of her life working to leave behind the stigma of what locals often refer to as the “wild Larkin sisters”. Now she has a chance to close a huge deal for her employer, Alpine Sky Resorts, and gain a major promotion in the bargain, if only her success not be so dependent upon the goodwill and cooperation of Jase Garrett.

Jase coasts along quite nicely until Zoe Larkin walks into his bar, the Rusty Wire, and makes an offer to bu

Another book from my friend Starr Ambrose. I thoroughly enjoyed this story, the second in the "Larkin Sisters" -- This one is about middle sister, Zoe Larkin.

See below fro Amazon description:
Zoe Larkin is facing the biggest career opportunity of her life, and she’s not going to let Jase Garrett ruin it for her. The infuriatingly sexy owner of the Rusty Wire, the hottest honky-tonk saloon in Barringer’s Pass, flat-out refuses to sell his bar and its surrounding land to her employer, the Alpine

Just from the cover I knew that I would enjoy this book. I love stories that are set in western towns and filled with hunky, sarcastic cowboys. That description definitely fits Jase Garrett. Zoe Larkin, on the other hand, is a little uptight and is just wants to escape the nasty reputation that her two older sisters left behind that have soiled the Larkin name. Zoe plans to go straight to the top and is about to close the deal of a lifetime and she is bound and determined to not let the lets of ...more

It’s been just about a year since I read Silver Sparks, the first of the Larkin Sisters books. When I received this one for review I had to go back and re-read my first review to try to reacquaint myself with the females from this strange family. Zoe was raised on a commune for a good chunk of her life by her free spirited mother. When she and her sisters were shipped to her grandmothers to live Zoe became the free spirit of the town. Her and her sisters ran wild and with that attitude came a po ...more
Rating 3.25 stars
For the most part the heroine, annoyed me with her blindness when it came to her boss and almost falling for his polished seduction and her stupid lists and plans. She is one of the Larkin sister, who she raised hell as a teenager(sleeping around, etc) and has been trying to respectable ever since, I didn't understand why she didn't leave town and start over. Anyways, for a promotion she needs to convince the hero to sell his bar and he doesn't want to. He is a former Olympian w

Unfortunately, the opening scene didn't engage me and the heroine came across as judgmental and a bit irritating. I also didn't realise this had a suspense element when I picked it up. I am going to try and read the first book in the series and then maybe come back to this one.

I wrote exactly one line about this book in my notes.

"I blew through this one fast, even for me."

Thanks for the help, past self, thanks a lot.


I added this to my TBR after I read Silver Sparks because it was a RITA nominee. I believe I liked Gold Fire better than Silver. However, there wasn't anything too unusual here. Ambrose does introduce a love triangle that makes you think she might be veering away from cliched Big Bad territory, but the natural order of things does soon reassert its

Great plot and characters in this novel. I found it hard to put down;I got involved in the plot, and Ambrose has become a favorite author whose books will become auto buys.

Really enjoyable. Loved the romance but the suspense was a bit of a disappointment. Way too easy to figure out but the romance made up for it.
