Is there anything sexier than a man who’s good with his hands?
Mountain men seem to know just what they’re doing with their touch, whether it's building furniture, tending to their land, or pleasuring a woman.
I’m a total sucker for their beards, tattoos, and buff bods.
If you love stories about sweet and sexy men of the mountains that take place in snowed-in cabins and small towns, you’ll love the following mountain man romance novels.

Mountain Man (The Smith Brothers Book 1) by Sherilee Gray
When Birdie Winters goes for a hike with a group from her new town, she’s hoping to make friends. After a life of living like a vagabond with her mother, she’s now on her own trying to adjust in a new town.
The hike takes a terrible turn when she gets separated from her group and sprains her ankle. To add to her nightmare, a monstrous blizzard hits.
Hank Smith is accustomed to living a life of solitude. He’s a grizzly mountain man who knows how to use his hands. He comes across Birdie, unconscious in the snow. He effortlessly scoops her into his strong arms and carries her to safety.
They arrive at his cabin, and Birdie is shocked to wake up to the sexy naked man who saved her life.
There’s an instant attraction between Birdie and her burly savior. They’re trapped due to the snow, but that doesn’t stop the heat!
Hank lusts for Birdie, but he’s uncomfortable. He’s out of his element. He’s only been with one woman before Birdie, and he’s embarrassed about his lack of experience and his uncontrollable desire.
Birdie is gorgeous, kind, and caring. She’ll learn that Hank himself is sweet and gentle, despite his intimidating stature. Will she be able to unleash the shy man’s inner beast? And after that, will she be able to leave her deliciously dirty man?
She can’t resist the idea of making herself at home, for once, with Hank in his cozy cabin.
If you like
- sensitive alphas with a gruff exterior
- and heroines that bring out the hero’s inner confidence
then you have to get a copy of this book!
My favorite part of this story is the character development. At first, Hank comes off like a rough and tough macho man. His rock hard abs and towering stature definitely contribute to that.
I would scream just like Birdie if I woke up to a naked stranger like that standing over me! But, as the story develops, we see that Hank is not just a grizzly mountain man but a loving, caring, sweet hero.
Getting to see how he starts to reveal this side of himself to Birdie is such a sweet treat. The two have fantastic chemistry. There’s no shortage of lust and intimacy in this short but steamy tale.

Eli and Sofia were mean to be, or so she thought, until the day he shattered her heart. Now, 12 years later, she’s back to the same place where it all went down.
Seeing Eli again takes her breath away. The rugged gorgeous mountain man stands tall and broad-shouldered with intense eyes that make her melt all over again. Sofia knows better than to get involved with the man who once hurt her so badly.
One day, she’s a few miles out of town when her car breaks down. Lo and behold, she ends up stranded in the cold in front of Eli’s cabin, a place where they used to make memories and make love.
