That has been twenty year old Samantha Benedict’s life’s mission. Two years since leaving her old life, she finally creates that perfect life she sought out. At least perfect to the outside world.
But being the perfect girlfriend, having the perfect GPA, and even wearing perfect heels can take a toll on girl. It drains Sami from the effort to keep up the facade than anything else in her life.
That’s until she comes across Ryker Larson, the Satan’s-freaking-first-born-spawn and a complete self-centric-ass-hole who loves his race car more than anything else. With his thrill seeking ways and bad-ass attitude, he challenges her careful tightly wrapped life.
What’s a girl to do but to rise up to the challenge? The only question is… Will she keep up with her good-girl-self or get sucked back into her old ways.
After all, bad habits die hard.

RELEASE DATE: January 12th, 2015
As the years went by, it only made sense that they would wind up being completely and utterly infatuated with each other. That was, until the morning Peyton wakes up to find Callum packing up and leaving the small town they lived in.
Left heartbroken and with no explanation, Peyton spends the next four years of her life without him, ensuring they never cross paths again.
Now at twenty-one, she’s inherited the family hotel, The Spencer-Dayle.
Just when she thinks life couldn’t get more complicated, the one person that shattered her heart, soul and belief returns.
For Peyton, his return opens up all her old wounds and resurfaces the memories she’s tried to forget.
Peyton knows her life will begin to unravel.
For Peyton, she was just managing. Shaking her head, Peyton looked down at the papers sprawled on the table.
The sound of a chair scratching caught her attention. When she lifted her gaze, she was irritated to see none other than Callum Reid sitting in frontof her, his arms crossed over his chest.
“I had my reasons, Peyton,” he said through clenched teeth. “But that doesn’t explain why these people I’ve grown up with can’t even look at me.”
Around them the voices had started to hush until the pub had silenced around them.
I don’t care if you couldn’t love me. I needed you then. I lost them and you didn’t show. It was their funeral, Callum. They died.
My parents, they loved you. Don’t you get that? They loved you! They wanted me to forgive you, but I couldn’t, and when they died, I knew I could never forgive you. You didn’t have to be there for me. You could have been there to pay your respects or to say goodbye, but you didn’t. The moment I buried them, I buried any hope of you redeeming yourself.”
The last glint of hope had died with the very last breath her parents had breathed that day all those years ago.
The truth is, Len Webster is a romance-loving Melbournian with dreams of finding her version of ‘The One.’ She calls Australia home, but secretly wishes a man with a beautiful accent would whisk her away. She’s been called a hopeless romantic and a firm believer of happily ever afters, which she doesn’t object to.
**** HAPPY RELEASE DAY! ****
A true friendship never dies.
Leisel and Evelyn lost everything. Husbands. Families. Friends. Lives that made sense. All they had left was each other, and a friendship that could withstand anything…
Even an apocalypse.
Until one fateful night, the marginal safety they’d come to rely on comes to a vicious and brutal end. With the help of Alex & Jami, both unlikely allies, Leisel and Evelyn are able to escape their shattered sanctuary only to find themselves face-to-face with a much altered, much crueler life where they have to find the way—and the will—to stay alive in a world they no longer recognize.
Traveling across a broken and infection-ridden country; the road-weary group are pitted against endless violence, improbable circumstances, and the ultimate loss.
Everything comes at a price—especially safety, the cost of which could very well strip them of the one thing they’ve tried so hard to cling to: their humanity.
Yet along with all the trials they’re forced to endure, there’s also hope in the form of love. Having loved Leisel from afar, Alex attempts to put the pieces of her fractured heart back together.
But in such a savage world, is there room for love?
In a place of nightmares-made-reality, where the living should be feared far more than the dead, an unbreakable friendship and a love amongst all odds can mean the difference between life and death.
There are friends…
And then there are Leisel and Evelyn.
