The series that readers are calling, "touching, funny, sweet and gut-wrenching all mixed together." By USA Today Bestselling Author, Elena Aitken!


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. But when work takes her to the small town of Cedar Springs to cast a hot 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’s 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. But Jade's made it clear that settling down isn't something she wants, not with him—not with anyone.

 

But when Jade makes a discovery that will turn her life upside down, it’s not only her own heart she needs to protect. Because whether she likes it or not, everything is about to change.

The series that readers are calling, "touching, funny, sweet and gut-wrenching all mixed together." By USA Today Bestselling Author, Elena Aitken!


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

 

Playing the lead in the summer's hottest new show 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 sexy movie star. Even more unexpected? He’s 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 him 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?

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

 

  

With a hot new look, and an even hotter new social media career, Gwen is barely recognizable from the overweight, awkward girl she’d been the last time she spent a summer in the resort town of Cedar Springs. And that’s exactly what she’s counting on. Gwen knew there was a chance she’d run into the boy who broke her heart all those years ago, but she wasn’t prepared for the man he’d become—or the fact that he doesn’t remember her at all.

 

It’s been ten years since Ian McCormick has been back in town and he’s more than ready to put his family drama behind him, start a new business and maybe even have a little fun. And what better way to enjoy summer at the lake than with the gorgeous brunette he can’t stop thinking about?

 

It was just supposed to be a fun little experiment for her followers. A test to see if looks really do matter. Would Ian be interested the new and improved version of her after all these years?


It was perfect.


At least until all the feelings she thought were long dead, come rushing back. And once the plan is in motion, she can’t back out. With their hearts on the line, can Gwen continue to play a game that could devastate them both and destroy the only real chance at love she’s ever had?

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.
A New York Times bestseller!

The Mount Trilogy continues with Defiant Queen... 


I’m his entertainment. His toy. Payment on a debt.

I tell myself I hate him, but every time he walks into the room, my body betrays me. How can I want him and fear him in the same moment?

They told me he’d mess with my head. Make it go to war with my body.

But I didn’t realize it would be complete anarchy.

I should’ve known better. When Mount’s involved, there are no rules.

I will not surrender. I will not show weakness. I’ll stand my ground and make it out of this bargain with my heart and soul intact.

But he has other plans . . .


Defiant Queen is the second book of the Mount Trilogy and should be read after Ruthless King. Mount and Keira's story concludes in Sinful Empire.
