His to Protect

Bears of Grizzly Ridge

Book 1
Elena Aitken

 When Harper Bentley’s life begins a death spiral, she does what any self respecting woman would do—she heads for the mountains. More specifically, Grizzly Ridge. A brand new—and very remote—lodge in the wilds of Montana. The last thing she expects to find there is deliciously sexy Axel Jackson, who is more than a little wild himself and reigniting feelings she’d long since buried.   From the moment he lays eyes on her, Axel knows Harper is more than just a guest at his lodge. Much more. Every bear shifter has a mate. She’s his. And whether his brothers believe in fated mates or not, nothing will keep Axel from what is his. But first he’ll need to convince Harper that what she’s feeling is more than lust. It’s fate.   Reader note: His to Protect is a full length stand alone bear shifter novel and the first in the Grizzly Ridge Series. No Cliffhangers! This series contains: strong, sassy, curvy women; sexy alpha males; steamy shifters and sizzling sex scenes.

About the author

   Like a lot of my readers, I'm a busy mom. It often feels like life is pulling us in a million different directions, which is why I love to write romance!

There's nothing better than knowing you have an escape waiting for you at the end of a long day in the form of a good book.

I'm lucky enough to live in the shadow of the Canadian Rocky Mountains in the foothills of Alberta, where I can write the stories I love. Whenever I get the chance, I escape into those amazing mountains and I can usually be found sitting with my feet in the lake, working on my next book.

As well as contemporary  and paranormal romance novels, I also like to write women's fiction and my collection of stand alone novels are all part of the Escape Collection. I'm always trying something new, so stay tuned to see what's next!

The love at the Springs continues with...The McCormicks!

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 was 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?

Meet the rest of the McCormicks with:
Book One- Love in the Moment (Ian & Gwen's Story)
Book Two- Only for the Moment (Mitch & Jade's Story) 
Book Three- One More Moment: Cal's Story (Available July 14, 2017)
Book Four- In This Moment: Declan's Story (Available August, 2017)

 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. The painfully quiet lifestyle in a tiny, mountain town with a half-brother she barely knows—and certainly doesn’t like very much—is not where she sees herself for more than a couple of months. 
But when two very different men vie for her attention, Chelsea finds her beliefs challenged in ways she never thought possible. The owner of the town’s newest café, 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. Is it possible to have the life he craves? Scott has had his doubts, until he meets Chelsea McCormick, a woman who makes everything he’s ever wanted, seem possible. The problem is, Scott isn’t the only man interested in Chelsea. New to town himself, Lucas Lee has been hired as the contract manager of Cedar Springs latest multifamily development. Driven and ambitious, Lucas sees this project as a turning point in his career, catapulting him into a more prestigious position, far from Cedar Springs. While Lucas has never been interested in a serious relationship, Chelsea just might be special enough to change his mind. As summer winds down, Chelsea realizes it should be time to move on. But now, she’s not so sure. Things in Cedar Springs have just started to get interesting with two available and smokin’ hot men who’ve just moved to town. Men who represent two very different paths. Men who both want her… 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?

 <h2><b>You're invited back to Castle Mountain Lodge!</b></h2>
For as long as she could remember, Marissa Duncan had been completely and totally in love with her older brother’s best friend. She spent her teenage years secretly crushing on Nick Slater until one day—sure he felt the same way— she got up the courage to tell him how she felt. But instead of reciprocating her affection, the boy she’d fallen in love with had laughed in her face and sent her away broken hearted.
It’s been eight years since Nick has seen Marissa Duncan. Eight years that he hasn’t been able to stop thinking about her and what could have been if he’d followed his heart the night she’d confessed her love to him. But the timing hadn’t been right, and there was a code between friends. He couldn’t date his best friends little sister. No matter what.
For eight years, Marissa has managed to avoid Nick, but there will be no way to avoid him at her brother’s wedding at Castle Mountain Lodge, the most romantic location in the Rockies. Especially since Nick’s the best man, and she’s agreed to be the maid of honor. She has no reason to be nervous, after all, she’s no longer the awkward, uncertain teenager she once was. Besides, what she felt for Nick was only a childhood crush.
Things have changed.
Haven’t they?
<b> ~A sweet contemporary romance~</b>
