Perfect for fans of Nora Roberts, Jackie Collins, Susan Stoker,

and dog lovers everywhere!


When an ex-marine and his highly trained dog are hired to protect the daughter of a Hollywood power couple, love was the furthest thing from their minds. But when it becomes clear that she is in danger, how far will he go to save her?

Kane Turner is a simple man who cares nothing for riches. Scarred both physically and mentally from his tours as a marine, all Kane cares about is his bike, beer, and dog Bud – and not necessarily in that order. He lives in a trailer on the beach, working security detail for his friend’s company protecting some of the wealthiest (and most superficial) people in the world with loyal Bud at his side. 

Ask anyone and they’d tell you that Lexi Jones has it all. The daughter of Hollywood royalty, she’s rich, one of the most stunning women in the world with parents who dote on her. Yet Lexi is lonely. All she wants is to work with animals. She doesn’t care for the LA lifestyle having struggled to make any lasting relationships: people are generally too in awe of her family or befriend her only for what they can get. 

Following a series of threats, Kane is hired to protect Lexi yet despite their world of differences the two find themselves falling in love. In Kane (and his dog Bud), Lexi has found an authentic soul who doesn’t care who her parents are or how wealthy she is, while Lexi is the one person who can seemingly heal Kane’s wounds.
When Lexi is kidnapped, Kane only has a short time to save her. Can he find her before time runs out?

This is a standalone book with no cliffhangers though you'll get the best experience by reading the series in order!


She was found with no memory or belongings, washed up on the private beach of a troubled movie star.

When no one comes forward to claim her, the now named Jane Smith finds herself suddenly living in a dream house with Logan Steel, the elusive movie star who saved her - but it isn't the fairy tale the world thinks it is.

After his last few movies bombed due to his wildly reported bad behavior and messy love life, Logan is having a hell of a time trying to stay at the top. When his publicist suggests he take Jane in to win over his fans again, Logan feels he has no choice even if the last thing he wants is another woman to muddy the waters. As part of his new look as “movie-star-with-a-heart” he is gifted a puppy for those "candid" moments out and about town, not caring in the least that Logan doesn't like animals and has no idea how to care for one.

When an unfortunate incident is blown up by the press into something it isn’t threatening Logan’s very livelihood, the only way to fix the damage is by contracting Jane as his new girlfriend.

In the whirlwind of staged dates and events that follow, despite Jane not knowing who she is, she starts falling for him but can Logan really love an ordinary woman? And who is the sinister man who haunts her dreams?

Just when it seems they might survive their differences, Jane's past comes crashing into their lives, threatening to kill their happy ever after.
