Emmeline Somerville is the resident philanthropist at The Rosewood Academy for Academic Excellence. She cares deeply about human rights, animals, the planet and most of all, her friends at Rosewood. But sometimes caring so much about other people means the one person you should care about most—yourself—gets overlooked. Now that her former boyfriend Dave is with her roommate Brooklyn, Emmie tries to move forward, but it’s hard because maybe she wasn’t completely over Dave and perhaps she isn’t completely okay with him and Brooklyn dating. Or maybe the worst part is being left behind. 


To add to Emmie’s troubles, in a moment of panic, she’s made an accusation against a member of the community—a troubled boy with a mysterious past—and now she must face the consequences of her split-second decision. Consequences she never could have seen coming. Consequences that will change both of their lives forever. 

And then there’s Rob, Brooklyn’s older brother and the new handyman working on campus at Rosewood. He’s gorgeous and funny and shares Emmie’s love for movies. Sort of. What at first seemed like a fun way to pass time starts to turn into more than either of them bargained for. And when the Christmas holidays arrive, Emmie has to say goodbye to her friends and Rob to face the holidays on her own. 

This Point Forward is the fifth book in The Rosewoods, an exciting new Young Adult series for readers who love fun, flirty love stories.

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?

Turning the Page is the ninth installment of The Rosewoods, an exciting Young Adult series for readers who love fun, flirty love stories.

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.

Vanessa Capri hates musicians. She has good reasons to, just not ones she’s willing to talk about, even with her best friend, Sandy Thibeault. Vanessa has a long history with rock stars; as the daughter of a famous music producer, she’s spent her life around them and knows about the seedy underbelly of the music business. She knows firsthand how the industry ruins lives and families, and she’ll do anything in her power to stay away. Until the talent show at The Rosewood Academy for Academic Excellence—her boarding school for the rich and famous—where she sees Willmont Davidson perform. She recognizes his rare talent and knows he needs to audition for her father’s new boy band. Except Willmont isn’t buying what she’s selling and seems to be immune to the lure of the music business. Vanessa is determined to get him on board, though she’s also committed to maintaining her distance from the band. Especially when one of the members turns out to be someone from Vanessa’s past—someone she’s been trying for months to get over.

But then her summer plans—relaxing at her house in the Hamptons with Sandy—are threatened when her best friend decides she wants to follow the band on tour. It’s a dream come true for her to be the band’s exclusive teen vlogger and Vanessa’s dad loves the idea to help build buzz, so who is Vanessa to stop her? Sandy wants her to come along, but while Vanessa’s not going to stop her friend, there’s no way she’s going on tour.

Despite her efforts to stay away, Vanessa gets caught up in the tour preparations and starts not hating it (or the guys) as much as she would have expected. And then, when things start to go wrong, they don’t just want her on tour, they need her. Will Vanessa rise to the challenge? And if she does will she be able to protect her heart from these boys who were built to be heartthrobs?

Along for the Ride is the first 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.

Brooklyn Prescott (at least that's what it says on her passport) was living the life of a boring, unnoticeable girl. She was almost invisible at the school in London that she'd been attending for the past two years since her family moved from the States for her father's job. Nearly friendless and definitely boyfriendless, Brooklyn is gearing up to start her junior year when her father drops a huge bomb: she's returning to the States on her own to attend an exclusive boarding school. Because high school isn't hard enough, she's about to become the new girl at The Rosewood Academy for Academic Excellence, a school for the kids of the rich and famous. Terrified of what that's going to mean for her social life (though really, it couldn't be much worse) Brooklyn knows she has no choice and prepares herself for whatever is to come.

But the trip back to America--what promised to be a long and boring overseas flight--is anything but boring and instead turns into the kind of pivotal experience a girl will remember forever.

Brooklyn Prescott (if that’s even her real name) is the new girl at The Rosewood Academy for Academic Excellence, now that she’s moved back to the States after two years living in London. Rosewood, a boarding school for children of the rich and famous and known for its celebutantes, is missing just one element important to any junior’s education: boys. But luckily for Brooklyn, and the rest of the Rosewood girls, there’s a boys’ boarding school, The Westwood Academy, just a few miles away.
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? As Brooklyn settles in at Rosewood, she’s faced with new friends, new challenges and new opportunities to make herself into the girl she always wanted to be. Whoever that might be.

Things are not going well for Brady Fleming, Rosewood equestrian coach and Olympic hopeful. Thanks to a careless fall off his horse, he is now on crutches - out of training and a job. Not to mention he’s had to promise Brooklyn he’ll back off so they could be just friends, which is the last thing he wants. The worst part is he knows she’s into him too; she’s as much as admitted it. And that kiss… There is no denying their chemistry after that kiss at the costume dance. But he can’t date a student and he balked when she asked him if he was willing to risk it all to be with her. Now that his job and training are on hold, his outlook has changed and he’s beginning to realize what really matters and what he wants from his life. 

Maybe that girl who showed up on campus and turned his heart inside out is worth risking everything for after all. 

Read Risking it All, a short story from Brady’s perspective, in preparation for Making Ripples, The Rosewoods book 6 which released in January 2015!

Don’t tell anyone, but Vanessa Capri, the girl who always said she hated musicians, is starting to enjoy her life on tour with a bus full of them. Working on tour with the band and her best friend, who’s rocking it as Wiretap’s dedicated vlogger and social media manager, she’s started to find her groove. Also, and maybe most importantly, she’s finally found the right guy. With his sweet personality, total rock star good looks, and musical abilities, Will is definitely the one for her – once the tour wraps and they can actually be together, of course.

But when Nessa’s family life takes a twist, and her mother suddenly returns from the dead after five years lost at sea, her on-hold romance isn’t the biggest problem in her life. As she tries to deal with her family drama, barely keeping it together, Will drops his own truth-bomb in her lap. As someone who might just have abandonment issues (thanks, Mom!), Nessa finds herself struggling to figure out what’s best for her family, Will, and for the band. But where do her own needs fit in? 

As Nessa’s life feels like it’s spinning out of her control, she starts to think maybe staying away from musicians would have been a good strategy after all.

Loving the Rock Star is the fourth 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.

The only thing Sandrine Thibeault loves more than music is the people who make it. And, she’s not shy to admit, she has a special fondness for boy bands. Especially hot boy bands. So when she lands the gig as the exclusive vlogger for Wiretap, the newest ‘it’ band to hit the charts, her dreams have become reality. Maybe her dream of having a rock star for a boyfriend will become a reality, too. There are five of them, after all, so her odds are good.

As she’s getting on the tour bus, she thinks the hardest part of this job will be picking which band member she wants as her own. And then when Wiretap befriends another, even more successful band, Sandy’s field of love interests nearly doubles. Dream. Come. True.

Except tour life isn’t as fun and glamorous as it seems. The work is grueling, the hours are long, and her tiny bed on the bus is in what everyone calls the morgue—for good reason. Sandy’s life has become days filled with chugging coffee, trolling social media, fending off crazed fans, late nights backstage, and roadside diners—never the same one twice. Not to mention she’s sharing one microscopic bathroom with nearly a dozen people.

Tour is so much more than she signed up for in every way, but as her relationships with the guys deepen and grow, she wouldn’t want to be anywhere else than on the road working for the band. Until it all threatens to come crashing down in ways Sandy never could have imagined—maybe she’s not cut out for the rock star life after all.

Working for the Band is the third 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.
