 Fall in love with Christmas at Castle Mountain Lodge! 

Ever since Ryan Morrison has taken over as Customer Service Manager at the famous Castle Mountain Lodge he’s witnessed the ‘magic of the Lodge’ and couples of all kinds falling in love around him. Is it the backdrop of the majestic mountains? Or maybe just the luxuriously rustic setting? Either way, Ryan’s convinced it won’t ever happen to him. 

For Julie Pitts her number one focus has always been raising sixteen-year-old Shay. Julie would do anything for her daughter, including organizing a special Christmas crafting retreat at Castle Mountain Lodge as a way for them to spend the holidays in the mountains the way her daughter has always wanted. 

Shay has also always wanted her mother to fall in love and when she sees a potential love match between the handsome manager and her mom who is long overdue for some romance in her life, she sets out to give the ‘magic of the Lodge’ a little festive help. After all…what’s more romantic than Christmas at Castle Mountain Lodge?


~A sweet, Contemporary Romance~

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 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! I LOVE to hear from my readers! Please sign up for my newsletter at elenaaitken.com (link on website) so you can stay up to date on my latest releases. Plus there's a link to an exclusive free short story!

Book 8
 <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?

Colin's determination to enjoy the holiday he's missed for the last five years sweeps Andi into a season of joy that she's not sure she's ready for. Can Andi open herself up to everything the holidays have to offer...including love?

Book 1
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 Three- One More Moment: Cal's Story (Available July 14, 2017)

Book 4
The love at The Springs continues with Book Four in the McCormicks Series.  


For eight years, Evie Rose has managed just fine on her own, running a business and raising her son, Jonah. But when Jonah’s father reappears on the scene, she risks losing everything if she can’t prove she provides a stable family environment for her son. And fast.   After watching his parents love dissolve in heartache, Declan McCormick is single by choice, and has dedicated his life to helping others. So when the super sexy, fiercely independent, Evie Rose asks for his help, there’s no way he can say no. Especially since she needs him to be her fake fiancée. After all, anything that means stealing a kiss or two, seems like a good deal.   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.   Evie will do anything to keep her son, and the life they’ve built. Even if it means closing her heart to something she’s never felt before. Declan didn’t think love was possible, but if he doesn’t open his eyes to see what’s in front him, he could lose the family he’s grown to love—forever.
