*KYLIE RYANS NOVELS*
After Kylie’s dad dies in a freak accident, he leaves her with nothing other than her crazy step-mother Darla and the ability to play guitar. When Darla kicks Kylie out and she loses her job all in the same day, she hops a bus to Nashville determined to make her late father’s dreams come true. Waitressing and saving her pennies to record a demo, her big break comes when she’s asked to join a tour going down the tubes with once platinum album-selling country music superstar Trace Corbin. But touring with Trace is hardly a dream come true since he’s pretty much drinking his career down the drain. If Kylie can’t pull Trace out of his rut, he’ll pull her and her dreams down with him.
KYLIE never expected to be stuck on a tour bus with a pampered princess and her boyfriend’s ex.
TRACE thought he was finally getting to do things his way. Until the label added co-headliner Gretchen Gibson, the only person in country music with more issues than him, to his No Apologies tour.
As Kylie struggles to make a name for herself and Trace fights to keep his recording contract, they soon realize that maintaining a relationship on the road is more difficult than they expected. Surrounded by tabloid rumors and relentless paparazzi, Kylie needs Trace more than ever. But Gretchen is doing everything in her power to test Trace’s sobriety and his relationship. When it’s all said and done, the choices they make will change everything.
Because sometimes chasing your dreams and following your heart don’t lead you to the same place…

*STAND ALONE NOVELS*
Keep Me Still
Scheduled Release Date: Summer/Fall 2013
The thing about secrets is, they can either bind you together or tear you apart. -Layla
Layla Flaherty had the perfect life, or close to it. Until a stranger gunned her parents down right in front of her, leaving her with seizure inducing PTSD. After years of trying to pass as normal and failing miserably, she resigns herself to being invisible. But new to town Landen O’Brien sees her, and he likes what he sees. Much to Layla’s surprise, he doesn’t freak out when she has a seizure in front of him. He does the exact opposite, wrapping his strong arms around her and calming her until the tremors subside. But Landen’s family situation changes and he moves away before they graduate high school, reinforcing Layla’s belief that everyone can leave.
When Layla leaves her hometown of Hope Springs, Georgia, she hopes to put her painful past behind her and start over in college. But when she runs into Landen at freshmen orientation, she has a choice to make. Reinforce those steel walls she built up around herself or give the only boy who can keep her still a second chance. Landon’s more than ready to tear down those walls, but this time, they might bury her.
*THE SECOND CHANCE SERIES*
Coming in 2014
Last Second Chance
When Carly Rae Chandler gets an offer to work at the Second Chance Ranch celebrity rehab facility right after graduating from UT Austin, she’s tempted to turn it down. She wants to help real people with real problems, not spoiled celebrities going on vacation for publicity. But growing up on her family’s ranch left her with a love of horses that draws her to the opportunity. After all, how bad can babysitting a bunch of strung out celebrities be?
What she doesn’t count on is being roped into a tangled mess with infamous rocker and three-time rehab drop out Van Ransom on her first day. And she sure didn’t expect to feel the overwhelming attraction that pulls her to the man who has more issues than she can count on both hands. But like the hotel rooms and tour buses he’s famous for trashing, the havoc he could wreak on Carly’s heart would be irreparable. Van isn’t at Second Chance for publicity, or because he’s suffering from “exhaustion.” He’s on the brink of destruction, and he needs the kind of help Carly isn’t sure she can give. But without her, he’ll lose everything. Because he’s on his last second chance.
