After starting over in an English coastal village, a woman encounters a startling vision of love from her past in this “delightful contemporary romance” (Long and Short Reviews).
 
Ellie Golden has come to the seaside village of Borteen to pursue her artistic ambitions and leave her troubled past behind. Yet memories are stirred when she meets Harry Dixon, the handsome new headmaster at her son’s school. Ellie knows in her heart that Harry is her former love, Ben Rivers. What they shared on the beach that one night is unforgettable. But she also knows that Ben died in a surfing accident years ago.
 
Harry’s arrival in town is more than a little unsettling for Ellie. Seeing him brings back intense memories of young romance, yet he insists he’s never met her before. But Ellie has other reasons to be unsettled. Someone else from her past is lurking in the shadows of her new life, and the only person she can turn to is the man who calls himself Harry Dixon.

About the author

Morton S. Gray lives with her husband, sons, and Lily, the tiny dog, in Worcestershire, UK. She has been reading and writing fiction for as long as she can remember, penning her first attempt at a novel at age fourteen, the plot of which closely resembled an Errol Flynn film. Life got in the way of writing for many years, until she won a short story competition and the spark for writing was well and truly reignited. Gray carries a notebook everywhere as inspiration strikes in the most unlikely places. She studied creative writing with the Open College of the Arts and joined the Romantic Novelists’ Association New Writers’ Scheme in 2012. Previous “incarnations” were in committee services, staff development, and training. Gray has a business studies degree and is a fully qualified clinical hypnotherapist and Reiki Master. She has diplomas in Tui Na acupressure massage and energy field therapy. Gray enjoys history, loves tracing family trees and discovering new crafts. Having a hunger for learning is a bonus for the research required for her books. The Girl on the Beach is her debut novel with Choc Lit and winner of the 2016 Search for a Star competition.

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.

A NEW YORK TIMES 100 NOTABLE BOOKS OF 2019 SELECTION

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Stephen King, the most riveting and unforgettable story of kids confronting evil since It.

In the middle of the night, in a house on a quiet street in suburban Minneapolis, intruders silently murder Luke Ellis’s parents and load him into a black SUV. The operation takes less than two minutes. Luke will wake up at The Institute, in a room that looks just like his own, except there’s no window. And outside his door are other doors, behind which are other kids with special talents—telekinesis and telepathy—who got to this place the same way Luke did: Kalisha, Nick, George, Iris, and ten-year-old Avery Dixon. They are all in Front Half. Others, Luke learns, graduated to Back Half, “like the roach motel,” Kalisha says. “You check in, but you don’t check out.”

In this most sinister of institutions, the director, Mrs. Sigsby, and her staff are ruthlessly dedicated to extracting from these children the force of their extranormal gifts. There are no scruples here. If you go along, you get tokens for the vending machines. If you don’t, punishment is brutal. As each new victim disappears to Back Half, Luke becomes more and more desperate to get out and get help. But no one has ever escaped from the Institute.

As psychically terrifying as Firestarter, and with the spectacular kid power of It, The Institute is Stephen King’s gut-wrenchingly dramatic story of good vs. evil in a world where the good guys don’t always win.
