It was a bucket list trip I’d dreamed about since I was a kid. My excitement was as high as my anxiety—what if the trip was amazing? What if it was awful? What if it was blah? I had no idea what to expect when my husband and I packed up for Jackson Hole Wyoming last March.
Growing up, there was a poster in my grandpa’s garage of a skier at Jackson Hole, even though my grandpa had never gotten to go skiing there, he looked at the poster every day. The idea that I might go someday was a far-fetched no way. Except last winter, my husband and I had a small surplus in the bank account and Jackson Hole ski resort was having a banner year of 400+ inches of snow—we were in the mood for an adventure.
And we definitely got one! Fresh snow every day, so much that our skis were swamped—yes, we fell down a LOT. We rented extra wide powder skis like the locals and managed the steeps and deeps, moguls and couloirs, trees and wide-open bowls, and the cliffs… did I mention the cliffs? Every one of them was marked with a “Caution: Cliff Area” sign, which didn’t mean “don’t go there.” For locals pros it meant “yes, go there.” We got to watch lots of crazy stunts from the chairlift—yikes!
The most lovely part was the little one-room cabin we came home to every day—cozy, warm, so private and quiet. Ah, the life…
We loved the care-free adventurous people, the clean mountain air, and the stunning views. The mountain had plenty of challenges we weren’t able to conquer. We’ll save those for next time. And just so you know, if someday I fall off the map and I’m nowhere to be found, look for me in Jackson Hole.
Get Toxic Desire by Robin Lovett for just $0.99!
Nemona can’t believe she’s crash landed on the planet Fyrian with the brooding, golden-skinned alien who destroyed her ship and scattered her crew. She should want to kill him. But everything on Fyrian is an aphrodisiac. So she just wants to have him. Now.
Revenge. That’s all commander Oten has wanted against humans for more than a century, ever since they tried to destroy his kind. He never thought he’d end up in bed with one. But the desire the sex planet stokes for this human female is eating him alive. Keeping his hands, his mouth, and his vampiric fangs to himself proves impossible—especially when she’s begging him to touch her.
Nemona has no idea what endless sex with a Ssedez will do to her. But Oten knows all too well. They need to get off this planet. Before their coupling stirs an alien mating bond that neither of their hearts can withstand.
