You can hide from your past; you can hide from your future—but can you ever hide from love?

 

He’s spent the last ten years hiding from his past. That’s meant staying on the move, never settling in any place for too long, and never letting anyone get too close.

 

Summer Lake is different. It’s a place he doesn’t want to move on from. His job as a pilot means he’s away half the time, but when he’s home, he’s surrounded by good people. People he’s allowed himself to care about.

 

He’s made friends—friends who accept that he doesn’t share much about who he is or where he’s from. There’s a girl who he wishes could be more than a friend. They almost got together when he first came to the lake, but he couldn’t take the risk. His heart wanted so much more, but he had to hide his heart and be content with her friendship.

 

She’s hoped for more since the day she met him, but she, too, has had to settle for friendship.

 

Hearts can only stay hidden for so long, but when there’s too much love to hide, will the danger from his past finally track him down and destroy them both?

About the author

 Hi, I'm SJ, a coffee addict, lover of chocolate and drinker of good red wines. I'm a lost soul and a hopeless romantic. Reading and writing are necessary parts of who I am. Though perhaps not as necessary as coffee! I can drink coffee without writing, but I can't write without coffee.


I grew up loving romance novels, my first boyfriends were book boyfriends, but life intervened, as it tends to do, and I wandered down the paths of non fiction for many years. My life changed completely a couple of years ago and I returned to Romance to find my escape.

I write 'Sweet n Steamy' stories because to me there is enough angst and darkness in real life. My favorite romances are happy escapes with a focus on fun, friendships and happily-ever-afters, just like the ones I write.

These days I live in beautiful Montana, the last best place. If I'm not reading or writing you'll find me just down the road in the park - Yellowstone. I have deer, eagles and the occasional bear for company, and I like it that way :0)

The third book in the bestselling Club X series by New York Times and USA Today bestselling author K.M. Scott! Get all five Club X books separately or in the Complete Club X Series Box Set and fall in love with the hottest brothers in town!


Kane Jackson, the ruler of the fantasy section of Club X, has always been different from his brothers. The bastard son of Cassian March III, he grew up without the money and privilege Cassian and Stefan enjoyed from the March name, instead only knowing his father as the man who abandoned him and seeing himself as unloved and unwanted. He let love in once and like everything else in his life, all that came from it was pain. His heart hidden behind the walls he's built since then, Kane is now just the dark figure who rules over the fantasies of others but has none himself.

Abbi Linde can't seem to get a break. Too many bad men and bad choices have left her bruised and broken, but the opportunity to dance at Club X could change everything. For the first time, she might be able to make a life for herself and find the happiness she longs for. After what feels like a lifetime of heartbreak, Abbi still believes one day her dreams will come true and she'll find the love that's eluded her.

Even the darkest heart craves the light, but will the darkness be too much for love to overcome with these two souls?

AND DON'T MISS THE NEW K.M. SCOTT RELEASE, IF I DREAM (CORRUPTED LOVE #1)!
If I dream, will you dare?

All I wanted was my freedom. It’s all I’d dreamed of from the first time I stood in the ring. Until I entered Robert Erickson’s world. Until Serena. Cruelty and ugliness surrounded me, but she was beautiful and good. I wanted to protect her from her father’s world, even though I knew being with her could mean the end of me.

I wanted for nothing as the daughter of one of the richest men in the world. But all my father’s money couldn’t buy what I truly craved. Until Ryder. I wanted all he was, all he brought out in me. All he made me desire.

Our love was forbidden by the one person who had the power to harm us. We dreamed of more than living in that world, though. We dreamed of having it all, but did we dare?
 


 

 You know those stories – where guy meets girl, they fall for each other, life does its best to tear them apart, but in the end, love conquers all and they embark on their life together?

Yeah? Well, this isn’t one of those stories. This is more like some old country song. A song about a man and a woman who’ve already lived through great highs and lows. A man and a woman who’ve reached their fifties and who, despite humble beginnings have achieved great things in different ways.

He’s had an amazing career as one of country music’s biggest names. She’s raised a daughter and given her everything she needed to go out and succeed in the world.

They’ve both given their all to their chosen path in life, and when those paths cross, two lonely hearts finally see their chance at true happiness.

It’s hardly a spoiler to say that an old country song might end with the sun setting over two rocking chairs on a front porch. You’ll have to pick up your copy of this heart-warming romance today to find out if Marianne and Clay’s story ends that way.


This book is intended for readers aged 18+

He has no intention of falling for anyone - he's duty bound.

Sully, Special Agent James Sullivan, to give him his full title, is on his way to Hope Falls. He's going to visit an old friend, but he couldn't tell you why. If pushed, he'd say that he had some time off after his boss and friend died, and he didn't know what else to do with himself. He probably wouldn't tell you that Patrick's death has left him wondering if there shouldn't be more to life than his FBI career.

She has no intention of falling for anyone - she's carefree.

Jess Archer lives in her motorhome and travels the country as a freelance photographer. She can wander as she pleases and she loves that. There may be no one in the world who knows or cares where she is from one day to the next, but that's a good thing, not a sad thing. Or so she tells herself. Still, she's thrilled at the chance to visit someone who does care about her, her old friend Tessa. 

When Sully and Jess meet sparks fly, but will the magic of Hope Falls be enough to bring together two people who have no intention of falling in love?

This book is intended for readers age 18 +
