One wild and passionate Caribbean night leaves Annelise with amazing
memories…but what happens when her vacation fling reappears as a VIP
client?

Deserted by her fiancé only three months before their wedding, a
devastated Annelise decides to go on their Caribbean honeymoon alone in the
hope of thawing the deep freeze of her emotions. Tripping and landing on top
of the most gorgeous man she’s ever seen, a sexy French-Canadian
stranger, is as surprising as it is mortifying.

Rémy Gaspard is staying at his family’s remote tropical resort
to get some work done after a difficult visit with his sister, but instead,
he finds himself drawn to the sad young woman he sees from across the beach.
When she quite literally falls into his lap, he can’t believe his good
fortune.

Their passionate vacation romance is cut short by a troubling accident and
they part ways, but neither can stop thinking about the other. When they
meet up again in Montreal, seemingly by accident six months later, their
attraction is just as strong…or stronger. As they face the challenges
of misunderstandings, suspicions and a shadowy menace that won’t leave
Rémy’s family alone, one thing becomes clear. Their love
remains strong, anywhere and always.

 

Book 2 in the Anywhere and Always Series: Snowbound with the Billionaire is
Coming Soon!!!

Excerpt

She scrambled up as quickly as possible, but not before she pressed up
against the length of a tall, muscular man. He was warm and smelled of the
ocean and the wind—and also a bit spicy, like some of the more exotic
seasonings used in the local dishes. As she brushed herself off and stood as
swiftly as she could, she just had time to realize that he
smelled…incredibly good. For someone I apparently fell on like a ton
of bricks. Smooth. Real smooth, Annelise.

“I’m so sorry!” she apologized, feeling a hot blush rise
from her hairline to her ears and even onto her chest. She knew her cheeks
must be flaming.

The stranger, dressed only in faded board shorts that might have been red
once but were now a washed-out salmon, was covered in sand. It dusted his
tan, muscular chest and sprinkled his dark-brown hair. He might have looked
silly if he hadn’t been… Well, the only words that sprang to
her mind were ‘unbelievably gorgeous’. No, that wasn’t
true. She also thought ‘scrumptious’ and ‘hot as
hell’. Mentally recalling herself, she realized he hadn’t
responded to her apology.

“Do you speak English? Español?” Annelise hoped he spoke
at least a tiny bit of English, because her Spanish was abysmal. “Oh
my gosh, did I hurt you?” she continued, worried.

The man sat up with a little shake, and his mouth quirked into a wry smile,
making his dark eyes crinkle at the corners. “No apology needed. I
must have fallen asleep. I’m fine. No harm done.
Although”—he gestured at the empty beach—“it was an
unlucky coincidence that you should choose this one spot to walk
onto.” His accent sounded French, and his tone was compelling as he
spoke, inviting her to share his amusement, not only at their situation but
also possibly at life in general.

Annelise felt an unfamiliar smile tug at the corners of her lips.
“I’m so glad you’re not hurt. And ‘unlucky’
should be my middle name,” she answered, the words out before she
could recall them. It was totally unlike her to talk about her personal life
with a complete stranger. Alone. On a deserted beach. Totally alone. She
took an unconscious step backward.

The stranger didn’t look as though he’d been lying in wait to
trip unsuspecting tourists, though. He looked as if he belonged—and as
if he was mildly interested in what she was saying. If he’d looked too
interested, she might have shut down, but instead, she found herself
answering the questioning quirk of his dark eyebrow.

“I’ve…had a bit of a setback recently in my personal
life,” she said. It was the understatement of the century.

“Sounds like it was a bad one. Do you want to talk about it?”
he offered, as if it were the most natural thing in the world, just two
strangers watching a Caribbean sunset and talking about their personal
lives. It suddenly occurred to her that he was the first person besides the
unobtrusive security guards that she’d seen on the private beach this
entire trip. She’d actually begun to think she must be the only guest
at the cabanas. Her thoughts turned suddenly suspicious.

“What are you doing on this beach? It’s supposed to be private
and definitely a no-trespassing sort of place.” Her mind turned to the
prominent guns she’d seen the security guards carrying, and she
wasn’t sure if she was trying to intimidate or warn the
stranger.

The white of his smile on his tan face was stunning in the sunset.
“Thank you for the warning, chérie, but I am a guest
here…in the owner’s cabana.” He gestured with one long,
muscular arm and Annelise noticed a path she hadn’t seen before,
leading to what looked like a giant house. It was much larger than her own
spacious cabin.

“Oh, right. The owner’s French, isn’t he?” Annelise
answered, trying to recall the details she knew of the resort. She’d
learned about it from her colleague, and the owner was a big-time client of
the financial services firm where she worked.

“French-Canadian,” the stranger corrected, raising his eyebrow
again, “but I’ll let it slide just this once.”

“Sorry…I know there’s a big difference,” she
hastened to apologize. Great, she’d now offended a close friend of a
client who could get her fired.

The stranger shook his head. “I was teasing. I’m not so easily
offended,” he said, bending up his knees and wrapping his arms loosely
around them before motioning toward the soft-looking hollow next to him.
“Care to join me? You can’t beat the view.”

 

 About the Author

Aurora Russell is originally from the frozen tundra of the upper-Midwest
(ok, not frozen all the time!) but now loves living in New England with her
real-life hero/husband, two wonderfully silly sons, and one of the most
extraordinary cats she has ever had the pleasure to meet. But she still goes
back to the Midwest to visit, just never in January. She doesn’t remember a
time that she didn’t love to read, and has been writing stories since she
learned how to hold a pencil. She has always liked the romantic scenes best
in every book, story, and movie, so one day she decided to try her hand at
writing her own romantic fiction, which changed her life in all the best
ways.

A slow-burn romance between two outsiders from opposite worlds:

 

He’s the biggest outcast in town…

Chase Collins has never met a horse he didn’t like. Too bad he
can’t say the same for people. In his hometown Lutton, his poor
reputation follows him like a dark shadow. It’s best for everyone if
he sticks to where he belongs. At least on Wild Horse Ranch, he’s safe
from judgment. Then one day a familiar face from 10 years ago shows up out
of the blue.

 

She’s a wanderer who comes and goes…

Samara Grant is a nomad at heart. She doesn’t like staying put for
too long. But when her Grandma Bunny passes away, she has to put her
carefree lifestyle on hold to handle her affairs. She might have spent
childhood summers in Lutton, Texas, but it’s no place to live. She
wants to get in and out as fast as possible. Little does she know life has
other plans.

 

Together, they form an unbreakable bond…

After a series of near-death experiences, Samara decides to take back
control of her life. She asks Chase to teach her how to ride. Neither expect
to find common ground—and a fiery attraction—when Chase agrees.
But their blossoming relationship isn’t celebrated by everyone. The
closer Chase and Samara get, the more an unforeseen enemy seeks to tear them
apart…

Contemporary Romance

Date Published: June 2020

Publisher: Hearts Afire Publishing

USA Today bestselling author Magda Alexander brings you a tale of
heartbreak and love, loss and redemption in this Hollywood meets small town
summer romance.

 

An actor who’s lost his soul

There is nothing studios won’t give for my name in their movie, whether
it’s money, women, or fame. But fame bores me. Money? I have more than
enough. And women? Not interested in the Hollywood types. The one thing I
crave they can’t give me. The redemption of my soul. For you see, I
committed the ultimate sin, one I can’t take back. I can’t find absolution.
No matter how hard I try. Until I land in a small beach town for a summer
production and meet a waitress with a heart of gold.

A down-on-her-luck waitress

The last thing I want is another man in my life. The last one stole every
penny from me. Money I’d been saving to go back to school. If I work double
shifts at the diner, I just might earn enough. But only if I keep my eye on
the ball. Only if I’m not sidelined by distractions.

A summer they won’t forget

But when a stranger stumbles into my diner one stormy night looking for a
meal and a place to stay, I offer the unthinkable–shelter in my home. When
he’s gone in the morning, I think that’s the end. But I’m wrong. Dead
wrong. Because the stranger returns, and this time he wants much more than
my couch. He wants me in his bed.

 

If Tomorrow Ever Comes is a standalone romance with a guaranteed HEA, smexy
times, and lots of pies.

 About the Author

Magda Alexander loves piña coladas and walks in the rain. Okay,
enough of that. Rewind.

Magda loves reading steamy romances which she’s been doing since she
was ten. Ummm, that’s not quite true. Steamy romances did not exist
when she was ten, and if they had, she’s pretty sure her mother would
not have allowed her to read them. She did read the hand-holding,
longing-glances kind, along with her catechism, which got her into trouble
more than once. Let’s just say Mother Superior was not amused.

As soon as sexy romances came into existence, thank you Rosemary Rogers,
she’s been lapping them up. So when it came time to write one, guess
what she wrote. A no-brainer, right?

Magda, a lifelong learner, graduated from the University of Maryland where
she majored in Business Administration (because her family had to eat) and
minored in English (because she needed to dream). She’s lived in
Maryland most of her life and now resides close to the Catoctin Mountains in
a city whose history dates back to colonial times.

Ten years after leaving home, the last thing Summer Thompson expects is to inherit her estranged father’s half-renovated mansion. And the last thing she wants is to face the memories of the night her brother died, fleeting as they may be. Now a San Francisco museum curator, she plans to stay east just long enough to settle the estate and get rid of the house. Until she finds it occupied by a hunky handyman who’s strangely reluctant to talk about his past.
Damian Knight has been hiding his mother and sister from a violent ex, and Whispering Pines is the one place they’ve found peace and safety. He keeps to himself. He tells no one about his past. Yet when the lonely, haunted Summer steals his heart, he finds himself opening up to her in ways he should never risk. Especially to a woman who’s planning to leave town after selling their refuge out from under them.
As their attraction grows, the past begins to catch up with them. Summer’s mounting flashbacks leave her confused and determined to uncover the truth about the night her brother died. But that truth will cross paths with the man Damian and his family have been avoiding for years.
Can new love help them defeat the pain of the past? Or are some scars too deep to ever heal?
If you love small towns, memorable characters, and swoon-worthy happy endings, then you’ll love this sweet romance by a USA Today best-selling author! (Note: this book was previously released as Summer’s Song. Revisions and updates accompany this new version!)
