New York Times bestselling author Susan Mallery's classic blend of lighthearted humor and intense emotional conflict works its magic on two newcomers to the California town of Fool's Gold, which Library Journal calls "a setting so real and appealing readers will want to start scoping out real estate." 

Destiny Mills believes passion has its place—like in the lyrics of the country songs that made her parents famous. After a childhood full of drama and heartache, she wants a life that's calm. Safe. Everything that Kipling Gilmore isn't. Her temporary assignment with the Fool's Gold search and rescue team puts her in delicious proximity to the former world-class skier every day. Part of her aches to let go for once…the rest is terrified what'll happen if she does. 

Though an accident ended his career, Kipling still lives for thrills—and a hot fling with a gorgeous redhead like Destiny would be a welcome diversion. Yet beneath his new coworker's cool facade is a woman who needs more than he's ever given. With her, he's ready to take the risk. But love, like skiing, is all about trust—and before you soar, you have to be willing to fall.

Look for Best of My Love, the next title in Susan Mallery’s Fool’s Gold series.

    Susan Mallery is a winner every time! I love the town of Fools Gold! Destiny and Kipling are a perfect match and I love seeing returning characters build relationships with and accepting the new arrivals to Fools Gold!
  • Another great triumph for Susan's Fool's Gold series!

    Destiny and Kipling's story was very touching! Your heart goes out to how they work to survive and prosper. Destiny had so much to overcome from her family's background that she tried to deny her own musical ability for fear of the spotlight! She and her half sister had to learn to become a family of their own. Her sister had her own issues with being abandoned and neglected by her father. Kipling has to overcome the disappointment in his life that he could no longer compete at the professional level. How they came together and came to terms with their own demons is a story not to be missed! A trip back to Fool's Gold is a chance to catch up with old friends and always leaves me anxiously waiting for the next book!

    Susan Mallery's Fools Gold series is such a fantastic series. Hold Me's characters are so personable and real life. The story is written in such a way that it puts you in the book, in the city, and sitting next to the characters. Great book Susan!! Can't wait until the next book in the series.
  • Another Great Fool's Gold Story

    By Lori Duhoski
    I am a big fan of Susan's Fool's Gold series and this one did not disappoint. I loved the way that Kipling and Destiny learn to grow with each other. Destiny learning how to overcome her past feelings so that she could help her step sister learn that she is loved was really great. I really liked how even though Kipling wasn't looking for love or a family he was able to open his heart to both Destiny and Starr. He was able to show Destiny that she did not have to hide who she really was to be happy in life. It is another great story.

    I love the fools Gold Series and always enjoy them. But this one got me. It was tugging on my heart strings. It was more emotional than the others. They were hurting from childhood issues effecting their decision for the future. Greg read I loved it.

  • Another Fools Gold Winner

    By TwinJenLW
    Another Fools Gold winner!! It was so much fun to read Destiny and Kipling's story. Fools Gold isn't home of origin for either and they seem so different but seem to be very well suited to each other. I so enjoy the story lines and characters from other books continuing throughout the series; although, each book stands alone perfectly. I anxiously await the next book!
  • Fool's Gold Again!

    By Faytam
    Susan Mallery's Hold Me is another visit to Fool's Gold, one of my favorite destinations! I enjoyed the development of the main characters - Destiny, daughter of country music royalty and providing assistance in developing the Search and Rescue team and Kipling, former world class and Olympic skier and lead in developing the Search and Rescue team. Their ill-perceived convictions on love, sex, taking action and speaking the words is fun to watch slowly fall apart. I also enjoyed hearing from other characters from Susan's previous novels. It is always so much fun to visit Fools Gold!
  • Another great read!!
