Carolyne Aarsen


I spend much of my days sitting in front of a computer immersed in other worlds with people so real to me that I keep thinking someday they might give me a call and come over for coffee. I know it sounds a bit strange but all of us writers have our quirks.

It's a good life, out here. Other than the swish of the dishwasher (a heavenly sound), the occasional hum of the refrigerator and the click of my keyboard keys, and the sound of my head banging against the desk when words won't obey life here is pretty good. Just the way I like it.

Newest Aspen Valley Book Out Now

He’s lasted eight seconds on rank broncs. Can he ride out the rest of his life around the woman he never forgot?


Battered in body and spirit, ex-rode star, Lucas Prins has come back home to settle in Aspen Valley and ranch with his brothers. But to do that, he needs to make a land deal with Aria Waldren, the woman he left behind. The woman he never felt worthy of.


Aria thought she could handle Lucas Prins’ return to their hometown. When he rode out of her life to chase his dreams, he broke her heart and shattered her dreams, but she got through, built up a law career and now is settled in her life. So there’s no way she’s letting someone who couldn’t respect what she needed control her emotions. But she got through their first face-to-face meeting in her office. So far so good.
