He’s determined to leave his past behind. She’s committed to a new and better future. But a guarded heart and an inability to trust may be too much to overcome, even in paradise. A mountain man through and through, Archer Wolfe never imagined he’d be willing to give up rocky peaks and pine trees for white beaches and rainforests. But sometimes leaving your life behind to start over where nobody knows you is the only solution. And that’s exactly what he’s trying to do and the pretty little blond in the tight tank top just might be the person to help him stay. Working together to run a charter business on her sailboat seems like the perfect solution for both of them, at least it would be if he could convince her to give in to the growing heat between them because it’s only getting harder to ignore the attraction between them that’s quickly becoming more than just physical. 

Cass Cutler’s life is full—of nothing. Unless you count a dead end job and a pathetic excuse for a relationship with her boss—and she doesn’t. So when she gets word that her father, whom she hasn’t seen in twenty years, is presumed dead, and she’s the new owner of his yacht located in Panama, she jumps at the chance for a change. And what better place for a new start than the picture perfect beaches and crystal clear water of the San Blas Islands, especially when they come complete with a unreasonably gorgeous man who’s become the star of Cass’s very naughty dreams. And her dreams are exactly where he should stay, because the last thing Cass wants or needs, is another man in her life who’s just going to leave. Now all Cass needs to do is figure out a way to keep their increasing attraction from distracting her as she attempts to save her inheritance—and her heart—before she loses everything.

Synopsis

Jade Roberts is in love with Talon Steel but no longer welcome in his home. While she resolves to move on, she still longs for the passion she and Talon shared…and when her boss asks her to dig up information on the Steels, she’s only too happy to comply. Talon and his brothers are hiding something, and Jade is determined to find out what it is.

The moment Talon saw Jade he wanted her, ached for her, craved her…and now his desire has become his obsession. He knows she deserves better than his broken soul, but he can’t stay away from her, and he finally confesses his love. If he and Jade are to have a future, he knows he must make peace with the dark shadows and horrors of his past.

But as Talon begins his journey of healing, Jade uncovers some startling secrets…

She can’t get over the past. He's falling for a lie. Is their love strong enough to survive the truth?

After ten years, Ian McCormick was finally back in town and opening a brand new business. It was long past time to put his family drama behind him and maybe even have a little fun, just like the old days. And what better way to enjoy the summer than with the gorgeous brunette he’d just met at the bus depot?

One hundred pounds lighter, with a hot new look and a successful social media career, Gwen Henderson has returned to Cedar Springs. The last time she was there, she was awkward, overweight and her heart had been completely shattered. She knew there was a chance she’d run into him, but she wasn’t prepared for the man he’d become or for him to have no idea who she was.

Gwen comes up with an innocent plan, a social experiment performed solely for the benefit of her social media followers, and maybe she’d even get a little closure at the same time. Would Ian be interested in the new and improved version of her? It was the perfect idea. At least until all the feelings she thought were dead, come rushing back. 

She can’t back out once she starts. But can her heart survive Ian a second time? And with their hearts on the line, can Gwen continue to play a game that could hurt them both and destroy the only real chance at love she’s ever had?

Love in the Moment is the first in the McCormicks Series that readers call, "really touching, funny, sweet and gut-wrenching all mixed together." By USA Today Bestselling Author, Elena Aitken!
