About the Author

Sara Richardson grew up chasing adventure in Colorado's rugged mountains. She's climbed to the top of a 14,000 foot peak at midnight, swum through Class IV rapids, completed her wilderness first-aid certification, and spent seven days at a time tromping through the wilderness with a thirty-pound backpack strapped to her shoulders.

Eventually Sara did the responsible thing and got an education in writing and journalism. After a brief stint in the corporate writing world, she stopped ignoring the voices in her head and started writing fiction. Now she uses her experience as a mountain adventure guide to write stories that incorporate adventure with romance. Still indulging her adventurous spirit, Sara lives and plays in Colorado with her saint of a husband and two young sons.

Awesome read. Fantastic story and I loved the characters. Bryce is flawed and a bit broken but you can feel there is a good kind man struggling to come out. Avery is witty and fun and desperately in need of a little freedom. These two together worked perfectly. I will definitely be reading the rest of the books in this series. Ms. Richardson has a new fan for sure. I highly recommend this one.

No wonder debut author Sara Richardson is the talk of romance circles. She's hit it out of the ballpark, an appropriate action for a story that starts at a professional baseball game. Budding businesswoman Avery King has it all...as long as she closes the next real estate deal. Moody, alcoholic Bryce Walker couldn't be much more down and out, his last hope a valuable strip of family land . That Colorado mountain ranch becomes the tug-of-war and the focal point for the two seeming opposites meet. A matchmaker mother, a steam-rolling, dead-hearted father, and an eclectic collection of friends huddle around the couple, who are intent on staying apart...but their attraction for one another is the flame that flares at the most amazing moments.

In Book 1 of the Heart of the Rockies series, Richardson piques my interest with her great writing, her quirky characters, and her overriding belief that love truly is enough. I also love the sociopolitical issues woven into the story...and the lives. GREAT JOB!

I really loved and enjoyed this book. I think it was a great start to this new great series and the author has a wonderful writing style that captivated me. I will be looking at her other books to find something just else good to read. I really loved the story line and how both characters grew by them selves as well with each other. Really a heartwarming lovable story and I can't wait to read more by this author and for the next book in the series. Ben just sounds so yummy!

Avery King needs to leave Chicago before she is run out of town by angry Chicago Cubs fans. She turns down a marriage proposal from one of the city’s favorite pitchers during the seventh inning stretch. She humiliated him in front of thousands, and to make it even worse, the Cubs lost the game. So when the opportunity arises to travel to Colorado to purchase a rundown ranch for her father, she is more than ready to leave. Avery is very good at her job and she knows she will have no problem negotiating the deal. Her father wants the land so that he can build a luxury resort in honor of her mother. So failure is not an option for Avery, she will close the deal.

Bryce Walker has had a rough time the last few years. He has lost his wife (who was his childhood sweetheart), he has become an alcoholic and he is about to lose the family ranch. Things could not look much darker for him. But he is determined to turn his life around and beat his demons. He has to save the ranch that his grandparents built with their own hands and failure is not an option for him, either.

When Avery shows up at his ranch and makes him a lucrative offer to buy the ranch, he refuses to sell. He vows to find another way to return the ranch to it’s former glory without selling out. Avery is just as determined to do her job and buy the ranch. When the two meet, tempers flare and anger erupts. But something else flares between the two, attraction. Both recognize it and both are determined to ignore it. But sometimes fate has other ideas.

I absolutely love both Avery and Bryce. Avery is a combination of beauty, brains, loyalty and vulnerability.

Sara was on a local TV station here in Denver as Colorado is her home. I loved her character development and made me a non-baseball fan become one through the eyes of our leading lady. A very engaging story and I really look forward to her next book. Sara is a gifted writer.

No Better Man is the first in a new series called Heart of the Rockies by Sara Richardson. This is the first book I’ve read by Richardson but it certainly won’t be the last. She is a new author with a great writing style and an obvious passion for the Rocky Mountains that she is writing about.

Bryce Walker is about to lose his family’s land, a ranch that is in debt and really bad shape after being neglected for years. He’s finally ready to take over the family legacy when he finds out that investors are waiting for him to forfeit the land due to financial issues.

Avery King has been sent to the ranch by her father to make a deal for the land. But when she arrives, Bryce is not entertaining offers and he’s rather rude while telling her so. Not wanting to go back to father empty handed and wanting a “win” after a public humiliation she suffered at the hands of her ex, Avery does not take no for an answer. She starts digging around to find out Bryce’s connection to the land and the more she finds out, the more she likes both the ranch and Bryce.

Of course she and Bryce begin spending more time together and they begin to fall for each other. It happens rather quickly but then they can’t get out of their own way to really make the relationship lasting. The two main characters have good chemistry together and are fun characters in their own rights. Bryce has some layers to him and they have to be unraveled before you get to see the connections he has with his friends and the community and the ranch. He has gained the loyalty of the people around him and is loyal to them in return. But he’s got some baggage from his past that still needs to be unpacked before he is really ready to be happy.
