Wannabe actress Dani Steele's r�sum� resembles a cautionary tale on how not to be famous. She's pushing thirty and stuck in a dead-end insurance job, and her relationship status is holding at uncommitted. With unbearably perfect sisters and a mother who won't let her forget it, Dani has two go-tos for consolation: maple scones and a blog in which she pours her heart out to her celebrity idol. He's the man her father never was, no boyfriend will ever be--and not so impossible a dream as one might think. When Dani learns that he's planning a fund-raising event where the winning amateur athlete gets a walk-on in his new film, she decides to trade pastries and self-doubt for running shoes and a sexy British trainer with adorable knees. But when Dani's plot takes an unexpected twist, she realizes that her happy ending might have to be improvised--and that proving herself to her idol isn't half as important as proving something to herself. * * * This is a work of fiction. While Dwayne Johnson p/k/a The Rock is a real person, events relating to him in the book are a product of the author's imagination.

For fans of Star Wars, geek culture, and delicious pastries ... If you find yourself talking to Jayne Dandy, limit the conversation to ducky collectibles and Star Wars. Best not to mention men, dating, or S-E-X. Jayne’s fine with the way things are—writer of obituaries and garage sale ads by day, secret scribe of adventures in distant galaxies by night. But a crippling fear of intimacy has kept her love life on ice, and hiding behind her laptop isn’t going to melt it anytime soon. When her therapist recommends she write erotica as a form of exposure therapy, Jayne is hesitant—until she’s unexpectedly downsized at work. Since rent and cat food won’t pay for themselves, Jayne adopts an intergalactic pseudonym and secretly publishes her sexy stories to make ends meet. To help out, her adorable, longtime friend Luke, co-owner of the popular Portland food truck Luke Piewalker’s, hires her to sling turnovers at his side. Right on schedule, sparks ignite. As Jayne’s secret career soars, she has to juggle the unforeseen demands of her alter ego alongside her newfound feelings for Luke, threatening a tailspin that will either make her face down her neuroses or trigger a meltdown of Death Star proportions.

Hollie Porter is the chairwoman of Generation Disillusioned. At 25, she’s saddled with a job she hates, a boyfriend who’s all wrong for her, and a vexing inability to say no. She’s already near her breaking point, so when one caller too many kicks the bucket during Hollie’s 911 shift, she cashes in the Sweethearts’ Spa & Stay gift certificate from her dad and heads to Revelation Cove, British Columbia. One caveat: she’s going solo. Any sweethearts will have to be found on site. Hollie hopes to find her beloved otters in the wilds of the Great White North, but instead she’s providing comic relief for staff and guests alike. Even Concierge Ryan, a former NHL star with bad knees and broken dreams, can’t stop her from stumbling from one (mis)adventure to another. Just when Hollie starts to think that a change of venue doesn’t mean a change in circumstances, the island works its charm and she starts to think she might have found the rejuvenation she so desperately desires. But then an uninvited guest crashes the party, forcing her to step out of the discomfort zone where she dwells and save the day ... and maybe even herself in the process.

Frankie Hawes is happy to shrink into the background and play personal assistant to her superstar-photographer father and prodigy older brother. But when bad luck and bad timing collide, Frankie has to dust off her photography skills and head north to shoot the Meyer-Nelson wedding at the picturesque Revelation Cove in British Columbia. It’s one thing to take Instagram pics of neighborhood dogs, but unless an Alaskan malamute wanders into the bridal portraits, Frankie fears the worst. Enter wedding guest Sam McKenzie, childhood friend turned handsome bachelor, who brings with him the tricks he learned hanging around the Hawes family, including how to manage the abrasive bridezilla who happens to be an old bully from their shared past. Reuniting with Sam helps Frankie see that her black-and-white existence on the sidelines has the potential to snap into high resolution—if only she’d allow it. As feelings grow between the pair and Frankie juggles the business during a family emergency, she realizes that maybe it’s time for her to pull focus in her own life.

"I'm a work in progress, just like everyone else." Although the Dea Vitae cult has been evicted from Thalia Island, Lara and her grandfather’s eco-utopia are still in peril. Rupert’s ongoing lymphoma treatment in Vancouver deposits Lara at Thalia’s helm—with no idea how to navigate the rough waters. And though Finan is back after two tense weeks of silence, the sting of his unscheduled departure lingers. Beyond the grind of running her own “planet," Lara must contend with the reappearance of Jacinta Ramirez, a fugitive Clarke Innovations has been shielding for years. Jacinta unveils disturbing secrets that reshape the history Lara’s been fed about her late mother’s past—and how much that past threatens to derail their cumulative future. When stress sends Lara to the bottom of a whisky bottle, Finan reminds her that slipping into old habits won’t fix what’s broken. As she tries to pull herself together, a tragedy brings her and Finan close again, but with a series of cryptic clues arriving on Thalia, the mystery of the cult, and its sought-after treasure, deepens. Lara and Finan must work with investigators, and a few unsavory players, to dismantle the sinister machinations of Dea Vitae before it destroys their blossoming romance, and the sanctity of Thalia Island herself.

With the curtain pulled back on incendiary secrets concealed for decades, reckoning comes from all sides: Who is telling the truth, and who pays the price for the sins of our forebears?

raft (noun): when two or more otters rest together, holding hands, so they don’t drift apart Hollie Porter has put her old gig as a 911 operator and sad single girl in an attic-bound box, right where it belongs. She’s rebounded nicely from her run-in with Chloe the Cougar in the wilds of British Columbia, and this new life alongside concierge-in-shining-armor Ryan Fielding? Way more fun. After relocating to Ryan’s posh resort at Revelation Cove, Hollie embarks on an all-new adventure as the Cove’s wildlife experience educator, teaching guests and their kids about otters and orca and cougars, oh my. When darling Ryan gets down on one NHL-damaged knee and pops the question of a lifetime, Hollie realizes this is where the real adventure begins. It’s all cake tasting, flower choosing, and dress fittings until a long-lost family member shows up at the Cove and threatens to hijack her shiny new life, forcing Hollie to redefine what family means to her. What is she willing to sacrifice to have one of her very own? As Ryan’s words echo in her head—“Our raft, our rules”—Hollie has to face facts: a raft isn’t always tied together with blood and genetics. Sometimes it’s secured by love and loyalty ... and occasional help from the clever creatures that call Revelation Cove home.
