But when her American granddad dies, and her Kentucky-born mum insists they travel over to the US, to Glenville, the small town she was born and brought up in, to attend his funeral, Cassidy suddenly has to face up to a past she’s deliberately tried to push aside. Because the last time she’d visited that town things had happened; things Cassidy hadn’t dealt with very well. She hadn’t really dealt with them at all. Was she going to have to deal with them now?
Ethan Everett is the Sheriff of Glenville. Hot, handsome and slightly maverick in his ways, his life is carrying on the way it always has done, until Cassidy Cooper walks back into town. They have history. They have a past. And that past is something they now all have to face.
As secrets buried within this small town threaten to tear lives apart, and change them forever, can love really be unbreakable?
*Please be aware that Unbreakable contains sex scenes, some strong language, and adult themes.*
A hot-as-hell rock star with a reputation.
He saw her.
He wanted her.
He got her.
He doesn't know what she's done.
She doesn't know what he's capable of.
It doesn't matter.
'Cause falling in love, that was never an option.
Lily Mae - strong, beautiful, but damaged.
Seth Carter - an arrogant son-of-a-b***h who’s used to having anything he wants, including women. And what Seth Carter wants, Seth Carter gets, because no woman’s ever rejected him.
Lily did. At first.
She made him work, but she sure as hell was worth it. ‘Cause when it came down to it, they both wanted the same thing – no ties. No commitment. Just low-down dirty sex; someone to play with, until the boredom kicked in, ‘cause it always did, where Seth Carter was concerned.
But as their relationship unexpectedly shifts course, the game changes. They change. And as Lily’s sucked deeper into Seth’s rock star world, she struggles to keep her secret, and a game which started out being played on her terms suddenly switches to his as Seth realizes that his beautiful young plaything is way, way more than that. And he wants to keep her.
She let herself fall for a man who was nothing but bad for her. A man who caused her to become careless, because she saw nothing but him. A danger she ignored.
Lily Mae isn’t who she says she is.
Seth kind of knew that.
And as the truth about who Lily really is – and what she did – finally comes to light, is Seth Carter the man who can save her? Or the one who destroys her…?

Someone in the shadows wants Coby Walker dead.
He’s not the only one.

Ben Salter didn’t want to return to a life he’d left behind. He was happy. He was in love. He was moving on. But all of a sudden he finds himself thrust back into that world he'd never intended to return to, as the person he’d swore he’d never be again.
He thought he could handle it.
He thought pushing her away would be easy.
He was wrong.
Lines become blurred and loyalties confused as Ben’s need to avenge a past he couldn’t forget intensifies. And as his world quickly spirals out of control, that past starts to threaten his future; truths are revealed that change everything, and a secret is exposed that threatens to destroy the one thing that can keep him from falling apart – the one person who can save him; a secret that leads to a bitter betrayal that becomes a catalyst for an endgame he’d never wanted to play out…
Messed-up loyalties and a dangerous loss of focus puts The Lone Riders at risk; puts their resurrection in jeopardy. And they should have seen it coming…

Mia Rose has been sent to Paradise for her own safety; to escape a violent marriage, and a man who will stop at nothing to make sure she never leaves his side. Having lived her life within the confines of The Lone Riders Newcastle chapter in north-east England, the move to California is a new beginning for Mia - it has to be, whether she wants it or not. Because she really doesn't have much choice. But for Charlie Hart – President of the Newcastle chapter, and one of the founding members of The Lone Riders MC – it’s a bittersweet act, exiling Mia to another country. And is sending her there, to Paradise, something he should have thought harder about? Given the secret he’s harboured for almost thirty years…
Ben Salter is the Lone Riders’ lawyer – a man who’s looked after the Paradise chapter’s legal affairs for over five years. But he’s also a man with a past he’s worked hard to put aside, a past few know the full extent of; a world he knows he should never go back to. But when he’s given the task of helping the club rid Mia of her violent husband, he finds himself being pulled further back towards that world. And closer to the woman he’s supposed to be helping…
Things have settled down for The Lone Riders since Coby Walker took over as President. All is well within a club that’s seen its share of recent troubles, and an air of calm and peace reign over the Paradise compound. But Mia’s arrival kick-starts a chain of events that threaten to unravel that peace. And as Ben’s world slowly starts to change, and Mia’s past catches up with her in the most dangerous way possible, behind the scenes another sinister act is being carefully planned that could rock the Lone Riders all over again as more shocking secrets are revealed, and a terrifying act of retribution sees lives being changed forever…

The last thing freelance photographer Nina expected to find herself doing was following an electronic dance music DJ around Europe. She was more used to photographing rock stars and models, in fact, that’s what she was supposed to be doing this summer – hitting some of the biggest music festivals and photographing some of the world’s hottest rock stars. Instead, she’s playing the good Samaritan. Doing a friend a favour. And now she’s about to spend the next couple of months around people she doesn’t know, music she doesn’t like, in a world she knows nothing about. But, in a way, she could do with the distraction.
For too long Nina had been a magnet for the wrong kind of man. Men who’d made her cynical about love, ruined her belief in happy-ever-afters, so immersing herself in a whole new world, just for a little while – yeah, she was more than ready for that. More than ready to put her career first, and relationships on hold. What she wasn’t ready for was Yves Vandale…
Yves Vandale is about to make his comeback after two years away. A huge name on the electronic dance music scene, he’s all set to kick off his Ibiza residency in one of the island's top clubs, and get back to doing what he loves – playing some of the biggest dance music festivals in Europe. All he wants is to get back behind the decks, and leave his past – his reasons for taking that two year break – behind. He’s more than ready to get back out there. But what he isn’t ready for is Nina…
Both Yves and Nina think they’ve got their new futures planned.
They both think their lives are back on track.
They're both wrong.
All Nina was looking for was a new challenge.
All Yves needed was a new start.
Neither of them got what they wanted.
But you know what they say about best laid plans...
From the beaches, bars and clubs of Ibiza to the dance festivals of Europe, ‘Before Today’ is the first book in the Superstar DJ series.
**While various characters over the course of the series will appear in many of the books, all books in the series will be separate, standalone stories.**
Secret dreams that we may, or may not, choose to live out, for real.
But, what if your fantasy became a reality?
Would it be everything you’d imagined it to be?
Would it change anything?
Would there be consequences …?
Noah and Kari's marriage is strong. Solid. But when they decide to live out their ultimate fantasy, they have no idea of the impact that one night is about to have on their lives.
Inviting someone else to share their fantasy, that was supposed to be harmless.
That one night was only the beginning of a devastating chain of events that nobody could’ve predicted.
Inviting a stranger into their world wasn’t supposed to tear it apart.
And as shocking secrets are revealed, and gut-wrenching truths exposed, heartbreaking decisions have to be made.
Inviting a stranger into their world was something they thought they could control.
They were wrong...

After quitting his job, Markus arrives at Ethergy – one of Europe’s biggest electronic dance music festivals – with the realization that he’s come to a bit of a crossroads in his life. But he’s determined not to let reality get in the way of the weekend, that can wait until he gets back home, to Iceland. And after striking up a friendship with Sonny – the English girl who’s pitched her tent next to his – he begins to believe that this year’s Ethergy just might be the best one yet. He feels an instant connection with Sonny. She’s beautiful but guarded, and he wants to get to know her more but she keeps pushing him away at every turn. Has he got time to make her feel that connection, too? Could they be more than just festival friends…?
Sonny has come to Ethergy – her first-ever festival – alone. She wants to mark the beginning of the rest of her life, after escaping a controlling relationship, and despite feeling instantly comfortable in Markus’ company, it isn’t long before she’s putting those barriers back up that she thought she’d finally torn down. And she begins to wonder if she’ll ever really be free. But with the help of Markus, a new friend called Winter, and the magic of the festival, maybe she can be. Maybe…
Dutch DJ and producer Arne Vos has played Ethergy every year since the festival began. And this year he’s celebrating twenty-five years in the business by playing an epic eight-hour set on the final night of the festival. He should be having the time of his life, but what the outside world doesn’t know – doesn’t see – is that he’s struggling with the kind of self-doubt that’s caused him to suddenly start questioning everything from his career to his personal life.
He’s been in a relationship with Dutch-Belgian Techno/House DJ Elia Ida for a few years now. A rising star in the world of electronic dance music, Elia’s had to deal with people claiming she’s only with Arne because of who he is and what he can do for her, but they both know the truth. She doesn’t need Arne. It’s him who needs her, and that’s something Arne has trouble dealing with. That, and a past relationship Elia had with fellow DJ Magnus Jennsen, a.k.a. Magma. It got in the way, for a while, and it almost destroyed them all, but they got through it. Or maybe not, in Arne’s case. And with Magnus also playing Ethergy, and Elia still insisting he’ll always be her friend, can Arne continue to accept that? Or fight it. This year’s Ethergy is going to be a very different one for Arne, that’s for sure. In a way he can’t even begin to imagine…
For German couple Johan and Heidi, Ethergy is a very special place. They met there, five years ago. And they’ve been coming back as a couple ever since. But this year, Johan has something very special planned. He’s got it all mapped out in his head, the perfect moment, and Heidi’s going to love it. Isn’t she…?
Heid has an inkling that Johan has a surprise planned, after all, they have a lot to celebrate. Johan’s promotion. Moving in together. Their future, it’s an exciting one, and Heidi couldn’t be happier. Until she receives a phone call that turns everything they both thought they wanted upside down, in a heartbeat. And they only have the weekend to work it all out…
Can a festival really change your life?
For Markus, Sonny, Arne, Heidi, and Johan, yes. It can. It did.
The story begins a year or so on from the end of No Matter What…
