Return to the beloved beach town of Cliffside Bay, where USA Today bestseller Tess Thompson spins another emotional, intriguing tale about overcoming adversity and finding strength in love in this standalone story about Lisa and Rafael.
After years of struggling as a starving actor, Lisa Perry's dreams are finally coming true. Splitting her time between Los Angeles and Cliffside Bay, the young beauty has a successful television miniseries, her first movie role, and quality time with her best friends Maggie and Pepper. Everything is coming up roses until a single tragic moment changes Lisa forever.
Haunted by unshakable memories and near-crippling anxiety, Lisa must face a publicity tour full of crowds and interviews in order to
move her budding career forward. And with the help of Rafael Soto, the head of security for Brody and Kara Mullen, she finally begins to relax.
Though the pair are as different as night and day, something about her temporary bodyguard soothes the young actress, and soon their relationship turns from professional to passionate.
But what neither anticipates is that despite the obvious threats to a beautiful ingenue, it's actually her protector who stands in harm's way. Will Lisa and Rafael be able to face the danger awaiting him together, or are they destined to accept yet another tragedy they can't stop?
USA Today bestselling author Tess Thompson welcomes you back to Cliffside Bay to explore the rich, heartwarming stories of the characters who brightened the original five novels in the series. Each book in the Cliffside Bay Series is intended to be read and enjoyed as a sweet standalone, but for maximum enjoyment read this binge-worthy series in order.

--Publishers Weekly (starred review) on BACK TO YOU
He trains men for war…
The only thing Sergeant First Class Reza Iaconelli cares about is taking care of his men and making sure they’re ready for the next combat deployment to the Surge in Iraq. Nothing will stand in the way of him taking care of his soldiers — especially not some direct commission captain who doesn’t even know how to put on her body armor. He has no idea what she’s even doing in the Army, other than getting under his skin.
She’ll fight for his men…
Army Captain Emily Lindberg knows one thing about the Army and that is it is terrible about taking care of its Soldiers. She may not know much about the Army but when Sergeant Iaconelli attempts to tell her how to do her job, she’ll stand up to the big NCO and dare him to be better than he thinks he is. Behind the angry exterior, she sees a man who’s hiding — using war as a means to escape the demons from his past.
He needs her more than he knows…
When one of his soldiers commits suicide, Reza faces his toughest challenge yet. As his efforts to remain sober start to fail, he’ll need to find the strength to ask her for the one thing she alone can give him — and it may be more than he’s capable of.

Lauren Harper wanted four things.
And to annihilate Roman Pierce.
Sure, he was a smooth, smart and sexy attorney who made the senior partners at their law firm cream their pants. But he was also an annoying cocky jerk who she’d been competing with since they had both been hired over a year ago.
And Lauren didn’t care how amazing his smile was or how hot his body was underneath that suit—the firm-sponsored fun run had a
lot to answer for—he was a ruthless, ambitious prick who would stop at nothing to climb the corporate ladder. He’d even climb over her given half the chance. Sadly, she’d probably enjoy that.
That wasn’t what she was supposed to be thinking.
She did not want him climbing over or under her, or doing anything else to her.
He was the enemy. Destroying him was the only option.
Wiping that smug, beautiful grin off his gorgeous, obnoxious face, a bonus.
Now, if she could just keep her objective in check and obliterate him before he did the same to her.
TEMPTED BEYOND REASON
There’s a reason I was hired to protect her by one of the few former military buddies I consider a friend. Because I’m the man people call to get the job done, even if the job is guarding the lushest, sexiest body I’ve ever laid eyes on.
I’ve somehow been able to keep my hands off her these past months as her bodyguard, but that’s before I learn why she’s avoiding the biggest decision of her life. The surgery could either restore her sight or take away what little she can see forever; and I’m the reason she’s been holding off.
She says she wants one night with me—her first time, no less—while she still has a fraction of her vision left. Hell, I don’t know what the right thing to do here is.
But what I do know is that protecting her isn’t just a job for me anymore.
And one night? That’s damn sure not going to cut it.

MR BIG SHOT
Introducing MR. BIG SHOT, a sexy new standalone romance from USA Today Bestselling Author S. E. Lund:
It all started so innocently, but sometimes the biggest moments in your life start with the smallest events…
The email dropped into my mailbox about nine thirty on Tuesday night. I opened it, surprised to see that the email had been sent to a mailbox and email address I hadn’t used for ages.
Hey, is this Sexy Lexi? I got your email from John. I have a 9-1-1, and need your services. Big family dinner on Saturday at the ballroom, Cipriani Wall Street, and will be surrounded by family and business associates. John said you were really high class and brainy. In other words, not your usual escort. If you’re available, wear something amazing but conservative. John showed me the menu. I’ll take a standard date with no add-ons. The usual conditions apply. Cheers, MBS
“Oh, my God…”
“What?” Candace, my BFF, my partner in crime and the one person who could talk me into almost anything, glanced over my shoulder and read the email on the screen. "He thinks you're and escort and wants you to attend a family dinner? What kind of jerk invites an escort to a family dinner?"
“A big one.” I chewed a nail and considered. "Should I write him back?"
She smiled, an evil gleam in her eyes. How many times had the girl got me in trouble? Luckily, I emerged from my teenage years alive, relatively unscathed, and without a criminal record, but only just barely. So, I should have known to trust my own gut.
But I didn’t…
Now, I have to give the performance of my life and play an escort to one of Manhattan's hottest young billionaires so I can tell the story to my girlfriends at brunch on Sunday. When the performance starts to feel too real, will I get out with my heart intact?
Will I want to?
