Dirty Dancing at
Devil's Leap

August 29, 2017

She was a naive country girl. He was a billionaire's spoiled son. He was her first crush, her first heartbreak...and now her sworn enemy.

As Avalon Harwood's fortunes soared, Maximilian “Mac” Coltrane's plummeted, and he had to fight his way back to where they both began: Hellcat Canyon. Now Mac and Avalon will play dirty—in more ways than one--to get what they each want: the glorious old abandoned Coltrane mansion. But when Avalon snaps the house up at auction, she discovers there's something awfully familiar about the extremely hot caretaker...

Mac might have a heart of stone, and the abs to match, but Avalon—the dazzling girl whose heart was always too big and too reckless for her own good—was always his Kryptonite. And just like that, the stakes change: suddenly they're fighting not just for a house, but for a magic they tasted only once before and never since—long ago, with each other, at Devil's Leap. .

A STARRED review from Publishers Weekly:

"...the best of the [Hellcat Canyon] series so far...sparkling banter, adorable children and animals, and moments of charming hilarity will gratify both new and returning readers."."

An "A" Grade and DESERT ISLE Keeper review from
All About Romance:

"This is the first book by Ms. Long that I’ve read, but I’ve been reading my fellow AAR reviewers rave about her for a while. Based on those reviews, I expected to enjoy myself, but I didn’t expect to literally be unable to put this book down. Seriously. I started after dinner one evening, expecting to read a few chapters before getting ready for bed. The book gods laughed at that one, y’all, because the next thing I knew it was midnight and I was nearly hugging my Kindle for love of this book.

A RARE Five-Star GOLD review from Romantic Times!

"Just when you think you can't fall deeper in love with Hellcat Canyon, along comes Avalon and Mac. Hilarious and touching, these two get each other's goat in a way that's only possible when you know someone down to their marrow—and if you have actual goats. As always, Long's humor is rooted in character, which means she can make you cry almost as easily as she can make you laugh. Flawlessly executed, DIRTY DANCING AT DEVIL'S LEAP is easily the most romantic read of the summer."
