 Seychelles Spencer—Chelly to her friends—is the resident bombshell at The Rosewood Academy for Academic Excellence; Westwood boys want her and Rosewood girls want to be her. But being the popular girl isn’t everything it’s cracked up to be, especially when that girl is all an act. Oh, she’s not exactly lying about who she is, it’s just that the confident, outgoing exterior is quite different from the girl inside. 

Not that it’s ever been a problem for Chelly. Until now. Because now that she sees her friends settling down with boyfriends, she’s decided she no longer wants to be the carefree girl who gets all the boys’ attention. Now she wants to draw the attention of one guy and get herself a steady boyfriend. 

But before she can make that happen, a game of truth or dare that was supposed to be stacked in her favor goes terribly wrong and Chelly finds herself at the center of a dare that will make sure she never gets a guy. Still, she’s determined and will do whatever it takes to get herself a guy of her own. 

But who? And at what cost? And most importantly, is she ready to drop the act? 

Acting Out is the seventh installment of The Rosewoods, a Young Adult series for readers who love fun, flirty love stories.

Halloween is coming and everyone knows what that means: costume party! For Brooklyn Prescott, the best thing about being the new school liaison was supposed to be planning the Halloween dance. Who doesn't want to escape herself, even if it's just for one night? But The Rosewood School for Academic Excellence has banned costumes and now Brooklyn's faced with the possibility of her first event being a total flop. Not to mention that she's planning the dance with Dave, the sexy and neglected boyfriend of her roommate, Emmie. Awkward! 

It's not like planning the dance is her only concern either. On top of classes she's got equestrian team practice, and Coach Fleming has been acting very oddly. Talked into sneaking out to collect some intel with her friends, Brooklyn may have stumbled onto a huge, juicy secret that could involve the coach in a potentially career-ending scandal. And then there's Jared, who seemed to be into her, but has suddenly disappeared without a trace - not even a text message. 
Things at Rosewood are getting complicated for Brooklyn, just as she's starting to fit in. The more she tries to uncover the secrets surrounding her, the more she realizes that her friends and even the faculty are all wearing masks. Does she dare look underneath them? Or does she put on one of her own? 
Masquerade is the second installment of The Rosewoods, an exciting new Young Adult series for readers who love fun, flirty love stories.

Kaylee Bennett has never felt like she really fit in at The Rosewood Academy for Academic Excellence, but this year she feels even more like an outsider. Life has done a one-eighty for Kaylee and as she returns to the posh school for girls, she can’t bring herself to tell her secret to her friends and definitely not her long term crush, Phillip Carson. Not that Kaylee could ever imagine he would be attracted to a quiet bookworm like her anyway. But then there’s Declan Ryan, the gorgeous exchange student who seems to be interested, until Kaylee finds out his secret and why he might actually be into her, and it has nothing to do with her charm or love of English literature. 

To complicate matters, Kaylee gets stuck running the school’s production of Romeo and Juliet, directing both Declan and Phillip with the help of Rosewood’s sexy first year teacher, Mr. Stratton—as if the Westwood boys weren’t enough of a distraction! 
Determined to stay away from Declan and make things work with Phillip, Kaylee isolates herself from her friends and hides out in the house of cards she’s built to protect herself, but how long will it stay standing? 

Playing The Part is the third book in The Rosewoods, an exciting new Young Adult series for readers who love fun, flirty love stories.

Brooklyn Prescott couldn’t be happier now that she’s returned to The Rosewood Academy for Academic Excellence. She has her friends back, has returned to equestrian training and she’s just about to turn eighteen. If only she didn’t have that Brady complication in her life, everything would be perfect. But not only is that complication still there, Brady’s become even harder to resist after Brooklyn’s time away from him; absence makes the heart grow fonder after all. Plus there’s that birthday gift he gave her that just about melted her heart. At least he’s not her coach while he’s recovering from his injury, so keeping her distance is somewhat easier. 

That is, until a stolen kiss crushes her resolve. Then Brooklyn’s past meets her present in a heart-stopping moment that threatens to topple her carefully constructed house of cards. Brooklyn’s half-truths all start to come back to haunt her and she realizes that part of being an adult is dealing with consequences, even when that means hearts get broken.

Celia Thomas should be living a charmed life; as the niece of Hollywood’s current it guy, whose whole family is on the payroll, she doesn’t have to worry about money or future job prospects. Except maybe she doesn’t want to go into the family business. Although with her marks being what they are, there’s a chance she won’t even finish her year at The Rosewood Academy for Academic Excellence, let alone find her perfect career. After years of just skating by, she’s now flunking everything and the dean isn’t going to stand for it for much longer.

At least her romantic prospects are looking up as things start to heat up in the kitchen with Shane, her student supervisor. Then, Evan Jenkins, or Jenks—another long-time crush—starts showing interest. Two guys; what a problem to have! But Celia knows she needs to focus on her marks because getting the boot from Rosewood will kill all her chances at romance and finding a happily ever after. Knowing she can’t do it on her own, Celia hires a tutor, but in many ways that just complicates things even more.

It seems the only things she can count on are her friends: her Rosewood girls and the new tutor who seems so worldly and knows a lot more than just algebra and history. But can the girl who seems to have everything really have it all?

The school year is winding down at The Rosewood Academy for Academic Excellence, but Brooklyn Prescott is nowhere near ready to leave her friends behind to go home for the summer. Also, there’s that unfinished business with Brady—she can’t leave for the summer with how things are between them now. But how is she supposed to get through to him when he won’t even talk to her to let her explain? Not to mention that he’s moved on and found someone else, a mystery girl that no one knows. The best Brooklyn can do is try to put it all behind her and move on. At least she knows that when she’s ready, there’s someone in the wings waiting for her, someone who makes her laugh and wants to spend time with her. He may not be Mr. Right, but as Brooklyn’s friends tell her, maybe the distraction of Mr. Right Now is just what she needs.

And then there’s her writing project with Celia that will hopefully help get her mind off her mess of a love life. Maybe creating a book boyfriend will help her get over the real one that got away. Can she make it through the rest of the year without getting her heart broken again?

On her very first day, Brooklyn meets Will, a gorgeous and flirty boy on campus to help with move in. But is he who she thinks he is? And what about Brady, the cute stable boy?  Or Jared, the former child actor with his grown-up good looks who can always make her laugh?

Vanessa Capri is living the life a million girls would envy: she’s the acting tour manager for her producer father’s fledgling boy band. Except that living in a tin can (even a luxuriously outfitted tin can) with a bunch of boys isn’t always what it’s cracked up to be. Not only does she sleep in a bunk in what the boys affectionately (and scarily accurately) call the morgue, but she has to share a tiny bathroom with nine other people, works ridiculous hours doing everything for the band, and has had to put her own life on hold. From arranging meals and buying toothpaste, to settling squabbles and tearing down stages, she’s the go-to girl for the band. Even though she has her best friend, Sandrine Thibeault, with her as the band’s in-house vlogger and social media manager, being on tour is not the easy and relaxing summer in the Hamptons she’d planned on.

Still, Vanessa takes her role very seriously and is committed to doing a great job for her father, which means no dating on tour. Such is her plan. But keeping a professional distance from the guy she’s into—one of the very hot and irresistible band members—is a lot harder than it sounds.

Not normally one to get caught up in the whirlwind life lived by rock stars, Vanessa’s past and present begin on a collision course; her reasons for not wanting to get involved with musicians become clearer than ever. Because while the band starts selling out concerts and becoming social media darlings, the fallout causes Vanessa’s personal life to circle the drain. There isn’t much she can do but go along and hope her heart doesn’t get thrown under the wheels of the tour bus.

Going on Tour is the second book in The Rosewoods Rock Star series, for readers who love swoony romantic comedies about rock stars and the girls who can’t resist them.

Note: The Rock Star books are companions to the original Rosewoods series, but take place after it, beginning chronologically after Crossing the Line (book 10). There are some spoilers, but each series can be read independently.

 From USA TODAY Bestselling Author, C. L. Stone, read The Healing Power of Sugar, the ninth book in The Academy Ghost Bird Series. It’s been a week since Sang has attended any classes at Ashley Waters, and since then, everything has changed. Her school schedule has been turned upside down, and now, thanks to her absences, the school counselor, Ms. Wright, has suspended her. The fear of school officials getting further involved and looking to contact her parents has Sang and the boys forced into their best behavior. It seems that the once perfect student, Sang Sorenson, is now one of the school’s worst, and without explanation, because she needs to keep her lips tightly sealed. Academy secrets are becoming hazardous to keep. 

The more that Kota, Victor, Silas, Nathan, Gabriel, Luke and North try to protect her, the more inevitable her downfall seems to be. They do their best to make sure Sang stays in school and when she returns to classes, try to help her get back on the straight and narrow—she can’t afford to screw up anymore. 

But then fate deals out a setback that cripples the whole team, and they need to make a move, it turns into a risky one. There’s no way to predict the outcome. If they fail, the boys may lose the job they were sent to do, and worse, they may even lose Sang. 

Everything gets more difficult when it’s revealed there might be a traitor amidst the group. Desperate to fix things, Sang needs to stop the group from spilling secrets and find out the truth. 

And why all fingers seem to be pointing to Luke. 

The Academy, Magnanimous
