New York Times Bestselling Author Vivian Arend brings you the penultimate book in the SIX PACK RANCH series.


The sweetest part of temptation is giving in…

Raphael (Angel) Coleman and Laurel Sitko were thick as thieves throughout their school years. The unlikely friendship between the rancher's son and the preacher's daughter might have gone unnoticed by most, but their shared laughter and connection were the best parts of Rafe's life growing up. Now that she's returned to Rocky, he's eager to move from friend to something far more intimate.

After three years away, Laurel's ready to start over with the gorgeous cowboy who's always owned a piece of her heart. But when her college ex shows up in town, she's got a lot more to deal with than expected, including one suddenly possessive cowboy determined to protect her even as he tutors her through every sexual lesson in the book.

Desire flares hotter and hotter through stolen moments and willing seduction. But when tragedy strikes, Rafe's left on shaky ground, his biggest fear now a reality that could tear them apart and rip forever from their grasp.

Will the connection forged by time be strong enough to see them through to the other side?

Warning: Friends to lovers equals sweet kisses heating to earth-shaking passion, mixed with laughter and tears. Get ready for hellos, farewells and goodbyes…some forever. Because everyone knows the only real secrets in a small town are the ones you're willing to take to the grave.

Rafe and Laurel have been friends since she moved with her family to Rocky Mountain House when she was in kindergarten. From their first meeting, it was clear they were kindred spirits and got into enough scrapes over their school years to cement their bond. When Laurel went off to Bible College for three years, Rafe couldn’t wait for her to return. They’d fooled around a little bit on graduation night but had an understanding that while separated, if the right person came along, they wouldn’t hold themselves back from a relationship. Laurel’s return and subsequent job at the library (and more importantly her single status) is all the impetus Rafe needs to start his slow and steady seduction to show Laurel that their friendship is ready for the next stage. But Laurel has some baggage from her years away that she isn’t sure she’s ready to share. And even though Rafe knows he wants things to proceed with Laurel, his own family upbringing makes him hesitate to promise more than just right now. Can the move from friends to lovers also mean a chance at forever? As a small town romance, it’s not surprising to see religion as part of the story, especially when the heroine is the Pastor’s daughter. It’s dealt with in a realistic way, and Laurel’s faith journey and decisions are part of what makes her the woman that she is. But make no mistake, there are enough steamy scenes between Rafe and Laurel that it won’t be mistaken for an inspirational romance. The conflict in this story comes from Laurel’s Bible college boyfriend showing up to apply for a position in Laurel’s father’s church, hoping he can rekindle their relationship. Rafe isn’t about to let some other guy come between him and Laurel, now that they finally have a chance to move their relationship forward. However some of what Jeff says to Rafe about who would be better suited as a marriage partner for Laurel hits its mark. Rafe worries about becoming a bitter old man like his father, and how that would ruin his relationship with Laurel. This is what makes him go slowly with Laurel and not push for a future commitment, preferring to take things one day at a time. This slow burn of sexual tension is deliciously crafted and it’s Laurel who finally pushes Rafe to give in to their mutual desires. Becoming lovers doesn’t change the strength of their friendship; it just adds another layer to their relationship. But soon Rafe realizes that he wants it all. As the tenth book in a series, it’s expected that there will be multiple scenes involving other characters. The author manages to do this in a subtle way, gradually showing some of the relationships Rafe has with his family in smoothly flowing scenes throughout the story There is also a handy family tree at the start of the story to see where everyone fits. Rocky Mountain Devil is a lighthearted read with its fair share of emotional moments, put together with a dash of Canadian country charm and starring a sexy couple destined to have a happy future together.

Devilishly Good! I love this series! Rocky Mountain Devil is the perfect title for this delightful read! Raphael and Laurel have such a beautiful story! Two individuals that met when they were in Kindergarten and became the best of friends! So cute... what rascals! I enjoyed the little childhood flashbacks! Watch how things turn out for them when they reunite after Laurel returns from school. A friends to lovers tale with some drama thrown in! This book tugs on your emotions! You also get to catch up with some of the other characters you have met along the way! A wonderful addition to the other amazing reads in this series! Looking forward to seeing Jesse's story next!

This book was so sweet! I super loved this book. Laurel + Rafe were friends since they were little. Little by Little, they fell in love w/ each other. Then, Laurel had to leave for college. Now Laurel is back + it looks like they never fell out of love w/ each other. I looks like the time that Laurel + Rafe spent apart was good for both of them. They were able to mature + find themselves Like I said, this book was heartwarming + so sweet! The HEA was perfect

3.75 stars ROCKY MOUNTAIN DEVIL is the tenth installment in Vivian Arend’s contemporary, adult SIX PACK RANCH cowboy romance series focusing on the Coleman family of Rocky Alberta, Canada. This is twenty somethings rancher Raphael Coleman, and librarian Laurel Sitko’s storyline. ROCKY MOUNTAIN DEVIL can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Several characters cross-over between this series and the author’s spin off series Thompson and Sons. Told from dual third person perspectives (Rafe and Laurel) ROCKY MOUNTAIN DEVIL is a friends to lovers romance that focuses on the rekindling friendship and relationship between Raphael ‘Rafe’ Coleman, and his angel Laurel Sitko. Rafe and Laurel have been best friends since the second week of kindergarten, and have been one another’s support system for almost as long until Laurel headed off to college, and Rafe remained behind to work on the family ranch. In the three years Laurel was away, neither one contacted or kept in touch with one another but they had made a promise that if neither one was in a relationship they would get together upon Laurel’s return. What ensues is Rafe’s slow seduction of the woman he has loved for most of his life, and Laurel’s struggles with the return of her past. We are witness to Rafe and Gabe’s battle with their emotionally absent father Ben- a man who has struggled since the death of his son Mike. Ben’s behavior is a constant thorn in the Rafe and Gabe’s side, a thorn that forces the brothers to keep their distance from the man they once called dad. Their long-suffering mother remains strong as the family dynamic continues to crumble. The relationship between Rafe and Laurel is a friends to lovers romance that has been developing since the couple was five years old. Rafe’s slow seduction of our heroine is truly romantic as he is determined to date with woman he has known for most of his life. The $ex scenes are intimate and provocative. The sexual tension is palpable. ROCKY MOUNTAIN DEVIL has a very large ensemble cast of secondary and supporting characters including numerous extended Coleman family members-cousins, aunts, and uncles, and the birth of a new generation-an Excel spreadsheet may be advisable to keep track of the mult-generational connections ;) . Rafe’s cousin Jesse is struggling with his relationship with his twin brother Joel, and makes a decision about his current direction in life. Jesse’s story will be told next in Rocky Mountain Home. ROCKY MOUNTAIN DEVIL is an emotional story line with plenty of heartbreak for the Coleman family. There are moments of sexy romance and love; frustration and acceptance; loss and moving forward. The premise is engaging; the characters are dynamic and energetic; the romance is passionate and heartwarming. There is very little story line conflict-the outside threat to Rafe and Laurel’s relationship is tepid and never crosses over the proverbial line-the biggest threat is Rafe’s guilt about family and loss.
