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?

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!

Morgan's looking to hide out from her life, but what she's not counting on is Bo, the handsome and rugged mountain guide at The Lodge who has his own heartache to bear and his troubled little girl who sneaks her way into Morgan's heart.
Opening her heart again means opening herself up to the hurt that threatened to destroy her once. But if she can let down her guard long enough, Morgan might just see that everything she's been looking for is right in front of her.
If it's not too late.
~A sweet, contemporary romance~
