"And the truth shall set you free" - I don't know who first coined this phrase but this book proves just how right it is. All or at least most of us made mistakes when we were younger--did things we are now not so proud of--dated the wrong people but came away stronger and with our psyches in one piece. Not so Annie--she was so traumatized and embarrassed it took many years for the whole truth to come out.

This novel delves into Annie's college years where she met a man she thought she loved--then met the man she truly loved. Stalkers can be frightening and Annie's ex was definitely one and a frightening one at that. Luckily Hank understood and they ultimately got married. Then that fateful day when a man banged on Annie's car window as she was ready to drive home from grocery shopping----it was the demon from her past come to haunt her once again!

Will Annie and Hank's ideal and happy marriage be able to withstand the secret that Annie has been hiding all these years? Read the book and you will find out!!


New Release....



Annie and Hank have created a perfect life in Laguna Beach but when a dark secret is revealed, will their marriage survive?

In high school, Annie Johns was the calm, supportive sidekick to the rest of the tumultuous female stars of the hit reality TV show, Laguna Nights. Today, she's living the happy life as a mom that she predicted on the show long ago. There's only one problem: the secret from her past that haunts her most nights, a secret that if revealed could ruin everything she shares with her husband, Hank, the man who saved her from the heartache.

***Laguna Heights can be read and enjoyed as a stand alone novella. And if you enjoy Annie and Hank's story, please consider reading the rest of the Laguna Beach series.

Laguna Nights (Laguna Beach Book 1)


Madison Alcott was back in her hometown, caring for her sick mom and working long hours at the best resort in Laguna Beach. She never imagined she'd return to the place where she became famous on the hit reality TV show Laguna Nights, and the place where she was humiliated on national television. Fortunately, the past had stayed tucked away until her old high school boyfriend appeared in the lobby.

Josh Welsh was a superstar by age eighteen, the bad boy break-out star of Laguna Nights. Since then, his star had lost its shine and he barely was holding onto his Hollywood status. When he was asked to host a new reality travel show, he jumped at the chance. The only problem was the first episode was shooting in Laguna Beach. Of all the reasons Josh didn't want to return home, he hadn't even imagined the worst scenario: running into Madison "Holly" Alcott.

Josh's connection to Madison was still as strong as her anger at his betrayal. When the new reality series forces them together, they must face Laguna Nights past and present, and navigate a journey where nothing is as it seems.

The Laguna Beach series sounds great, I wonder how Annie and Hank's marriage will turn out, sounds very intriguing.

Angelic Sinova said...

I'm always looking for a new book series to read! Laguna Heights definitely sounds like an interesting read. I'll definitely have to check it out <3

Orihimekurosaki said...

This series sounds like it would be a good read. I have to tell my little sister about this.

Shelley Polarbelle said...

These both sound like good reads that I'd like to enjoy and drift away in...a fun read for on the beach or after the family has gone to bed in my ME time.

Lisa said...

Interesting. Although if Hank saved her from her past, I wonder if the stalker is the secret or if there is a twist coming. Now you have me curious.

Amanda Tempel said...

This definitely sounds like the perfect beach read. I'm more of a mystery type girl, but I know my mom would love this one.

Sarah Ebner said...

These sound like perfect holiday reads - and as we're off on holiday soon, I will have a quick look on Amazon now to make it's here in time! Thanks

Elayne Frank said...

Having a stalker can be very scary. Information like this should be shared with potential mates just in case they surface again down the road.

Terri Beavers said...

I love good reads and I can relate to having a stalker. It's a frightening experience. I'll have to check this series out over the holidays when I'm too tired to do anything but read. I'm a bookworm on most days.

Sharon Martin said...

How awful, fancy getting a knock on the window from someone you thought had gone for good!

Jenn @ EngineerMommy said...

This sounds like an interesting book with a gripping plot. Now I just have to find the time to read it! :)

Alli Smith said...

"And the truth shall set you free" is a quote from the Bible. :) I love a good book with a twist and now I really want to read both of these books.

Kraus House Mom said...

This is my kind of book, suspense and secret pasts. I especially like series.

Franc said...

It would be interesting how she gets past the ghost of her past. The story looks really interesting and can really get you hooked.

Samantha said...

i think the reality TV show i would be a part of would be marriage boot camp- because who can't use that? and also, we'd be the sanest ones for once, LOL

Linda A. Kinsman said...

I love Kaira's writing style in her book Here, Home, Hope so I'm betting I'll love this series as well. Great giveaway!

Kaira Sturdivant Rouda said...

Oh, thank you Linda for the above compliment about Here, Home, Hope! My very first novel! I do hope you - and everybody - will give the Laguna Beach series a read! Thank you all so much!! xo

Denise C said...

If I were ever to be on a reality TV show, it would need to be something involving food. Umm...I just really like to eat. :)

Donna B said...

I'd love to be on Big Brother, it looks like it would be fun. I have been a fan for years.

alexandria waning said...

Ooooh, these actually sound like something I'd be interested in. I'd be a real Housewife, but I swear I wouldnt start the fights in the restaurants. Lol.

Deb PelletierC said...

I'm not into reality shows. Sorry.

StayWithMeonThis said...

I'm trying to add things to my reading list so this is great!Ever since I graduated college I've been slacking on my reading!

LeahSay - Bonnie said...

This sounds like and intriguing read, with a lot of twists and turns, until the truth is reviled. I'll add the title to my wish list.

Isaiahsmom said...

If I could go on a TV show I would pick Are You Smarter Then A Fifth Grader or Price is Right. I have always wanted to go on a game show.

Claudette said...

Sounds like another interesting read for winter. Finding it hard to short list from all the food books you are reviewing. :)

fee roberts said...

I don't watch reality TV, so I'm not sure.

fee roberts said...

The link http://www.amazon.co.uk/Kaira-Rouda/e/B001I9VYB6/ref=ntt_athr_dp_pel_pop_1 to follow Kaira Rouda is Amazon UK so I couldn't follow since I'm US, so I used the US link http://www.amazon.com/Kaira-Rouda/e/B001I9VYB6/ref=dp_byline_cont_ebooks_1, which is the link I put into the rafflecopter. Thanks.

Stephanie said...

This looks interesting. Books with sunshine settings are great to read when you're buried under a foot of snow and can't get to work!

Melissa Cushing said...

I love any of the Housewives TV shows! I would love to be on Orange County just to watch all of the ridiculousness going on on this show.... it would be a blast to see and makes me feel so much better ! LOL!

Chantal Bernard said...

This sounds like a great read! I will have to add it to my reading list!

None of my talents fit any of the reality competition shows I watch so... I don't think I'd like to be on any reality show.

I'd love to be on DWTS. It's my favorite show that I've been watching for years.

Huguette En said...

My favorite is Big Brother but I could never do it, I'd have to say Amazing Race, would be awesome to travel everywhere.

Veronica Lee said...

If I were to be on a reality TV show, it would be something involving cookie decorating - it's my current obsession!

Natalie said...

I would love to be on the Bachelor because I have not found my match.

Julie Baswell said...

Annie was a good character for this series.

Miles Imhoff said...

Man v. Food... but only if I could be the host... in which case the history
books would say: "Man v. Food is a landmark decision that ruled 9-0 in favor of
man." :D

God bless,
Miles

Addie F. said...
