Two men. Two very different futures. The problem? She’s falling for both of them.

For Chelsea McCormick, living in Cedar Springs is supposed to be temporary, nothing more than a chance to slow life down so that she can sort out the chaos of her life. Period. 

But when two very different men vie for her attention, Chelsea finds her beliefs challenged in ways she never thought possible.


Scott Harding has always loved the small town life. Settling down in a place with a sense of community, like Cedar Springs, then falling in love and starting a family is Scott’s idea of perfection. And Chelsea McCormick is just the woman who makes everything he’s ever wanted, seem possible.


Driven and ambitious, Lucas Lee sees his time in town as temporary, merely a launching pad to catapult him into a more prestigious position. He’s never been interested in a serious relationship, but Chelsea just might be special enough to change his mind forever.


Chelsea knows it’s time to move on, but things in Cedar Springs have just started to get interesting with two available and seriously gorgeous men vying for her attention. The problem is…they both represent two very different futures and Chelsea is drawn to both of them.


Love, adoration and a future? Or, excitement, passion and the unknown? One man appeals to who she wants to be, and one to who she realizes she’s always been. How can she possibly choose?


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

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?

She’s sworn off relationships. He’s ready to find ‘the one’. The last thing either of them expected was each other.

As far as Jade Johnson is concerned, the only thing men have ever been good at is holding her back from achieving her dreams. But when work takes her to the small town of Cedar Springs to cast a new show, Jade comes face to face with a man who sets her world on fire and immediately challenges everything she’s ever believed.

Mitch McCormick is finally ready to put his playboy ways behind him and settle down, but the type of women he has been dating are definitely not the marrying type. Which is exactly why he needs a nice girl. An easy going, sweet, small town girl...

The exact opposite of the feisty, sharp tongued talent agent he can’t get off his mind. Jade challenges him and excites him in a way he's never experienced and she’s all he can think about. 

If he’s brave enough to follow his heart, Mitch will have to challenge the ideas of what he thinks he needs. But even if he can...Jade's made it clear that settling down isn't something she wants, not with him—not with anyone. When true love is at stake, can either of them truly let love in?

Can love in the spotlight really have a chance to shine?


Playing the lead in the summer's hottest new show, being filmed in his home town, is a dream come true for Cal McCormick. It’s the big break he’s been waiting for after leaving his modeling career—and ex-girlfriend—behind in Australia. Things only get better after meeting the seriously cute and unassuming local real estate agent.

Milena Hill transformed her entire life by kicking her deadbeat boyfriend out and embarking on a new career. She’s ready to take on the world—or at least the town of Cedar Springs. The last thing she expects is to fall for an incredibly handsome television star. Even more unexpected? He is just as into her.

Caught up in a whirlwind romance is exciting, but dating a celebrity has its drawbacks, especially for a woman like Milena who hates the limelight. Enter Cal’s sexy co-star who shares a history with Cal that’s ripe for tabloid gossip, and things only get more complicated. How can Milena compete with a woman who is so unfairly gorgeous and as comfortable in the spotlight as Cal?

Cal must show Milena that living a life in the spotlight will only give her a chance to shine. But can Milena trust in a love that will turn her life upside down? And more importantly, can their new love withstand the pressures of stardom or is it nothing more than fresh gossip for the tabloids?

It’s not supposed to be real, but the longer Evie spends with Declan the closer they get and not only does it start to look real, it also starts to feel more real than anything she’s ever felt before. The only problem is, Declan only sees her as a project—just someone else he can help. And when everything starts to unravel, tough decisions have to be made—quickly.

It just isn’t Christmas without a book by Debbie Macomber! Together for the first time in one value box set, three delightful stories capture the warmth of the season.

When Christmas Comes

Through a website, Charles Brewster and Emily Springer arrange to swap houses over Christmas. Emily, a widow, wants to celebrate in Boston with her only daughter. Charles, history professor and curmudgeon, wants to avoid the holiday altogether. He figures a prison town should be nice and quiet over the holidays—except he’s thinking of the wrong Leavenworth, and ends up in Washington State—in Santa’s village! Through all the mix-ups and misunderstandings, amid the chaos and confusion, romance begins to emerge in unexpected ways. Because everything changes at Christmas!

Call Me Mrs. Miracle

This Christmas, Emily Merkle (just call her Mrs. Miracle) is working in the toy department of Finley’s, the last family-owned department store in New York City. Because of a tragedy years before, for Jake Finley and his father, Christmas means only one thing: profit. They need a holiday miracle to keep the business afloat. Holly Larson needs a miracle, too. She wants to give her eight-year-old nephew, Gabe, the holiday he deserves. Gabe’s father is in the army and won’t be home for Christmas, but at least Holly can get Gabe that toy robot from Finley’s, the one gift he desperately wants. If she can figure out how to pay for it… Fortunately, it’s Mrs. Miracle to the rescue. Next to making children happy, she likes nothing better than helping others—and that includes a bit of matchmaking! This Christmas will be different. For all of them.

Can This Be Christmas?

On a cold and snowy December 24, a crowded train is taking holiday travelers home for Christmas. But because of the storm, this group of strangers ends up spending Christmas Eve stranded in a small New Hampshire station. Despite the cold and discomfort, they create an impromptu celebration that reminds them all what Christmas really means.
 A Family for Christmas by Marion Lennox 

Sarah’s committed to her stellar modelling career in New York, but there’s an obligation she needs to fulfill back home. Farming tycoon Max Ramsey doesn’t like Christmas and most of all, he doesn’t like Sarah. When the two clash, enough sparks ensue to light a Christmas tree. How many enemies does it take to cook one Christmas turkey? 


A Yorkshire Christmas by Kate Hewit 

Claire Lindell isn’t looking for a Christmas miracle after her nasty break-up. But when she abruptly decides to hole up at her godmother’s cottage in a little Yorkshire village for the holidays, she meets sexy stranger Noah Bradford. Has Claire accidentally found her perfect Christmas and the love she didn't know she craved? 


Christmas with the Laird by Scarlet Wilson 

It’s official – for Juliette Connolly Christmas is a bust and she’s definitely not in the spirit. She’s been dumped by her boyfriend, plus a clause in her contract means she and a mysterious colleague have to work over Christmas. But there’s much more to Andrew Campbell than meets the eye. Are Andrew and Juliette are about to be sprinkled with a little Christmas fairy dust? 


The Italian Christmas Bride by Joanne Walsh 

Ashlynne is facing a dreary holiday stuck at the airport—and she’s also run into her ex-husband. She thought she’d moved on from Lorenzo di Grechi but the sexual attraction between them is still as potent as ever, and he seems to have changed for the better... Is this just some sort of Christmas magic at work? Or a real chance to forgive and rediscover her love for Lorenzo? 

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.

I have debts to pay and secrets to keep. When someone threatens my life, I crash into him: Jackson Ludlow

The recluse billionaire of New York

Once, he had everything a man could want. Then, he lost the only thing that he ever loved.


So, he spent four years holed up in his mansion doing the only thing he knew how to do: make money. 


We are all wrong for each other. He’s cold, uninterested and demanding. 

I’m impatient and inexperienced. 


The only thing we have in common is that we both have secrets. 

And the closer we get, the more they threaten to destroy us.
