New Release....

Welcome back to Laguna Beach...

Laura Kinkaid’s glamorous Hollywood life is falling apart. After years of reality television stardom beginning in high school on Laguna Nights, her career and relationship with her long-term boyfriend Scott are fizzling out.

Laura decides to go home to Laguna Beach for the weekend to attend a baby shower for her high school friend. That decision – and a car accident – will lead her to a new future, if she’s ready to take a chance at love. 

Paul Dorn’s former life in New York City is far behind him and he’s working in a popular Laguna Beach surf shop when fate brings the most beautiful woman he’s ever met into his life. The attraction is instant and he has an overwhelming desire to protect her. While Paul’s retail sales career is a short-term job for market research purposes, his focus on Laura is long-term.

Will Laura allow a handsome stranger to help her create a future unlike her past, or will the bright lights of Hollywood pull her back to LA?

***Laguna Lights can be read and enjoyed as a stand alone read. And if you enjoy Laura and Paul'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.

Imagine having to change millions of people's perception of you, the price of fame I suppose x

It took me awhile to warm up to Laura.

My favourite tv is Glee even though I've never seen a full episode because we haven't had tv for 15 years (youtube).

Thanks to the Sponsor for giving and you for hosting.

Thanks for the look at this, I am always looking for a new book to read but just got myself a whole pikle to go through! I can never get too many and this looks like a light read! I am curious to see how it pans out!

Scott said...

My favorite reality show is still Cops. The longest-running and non-scripted. Been watching it since the early 90's!

Jamie Tomkins said...

My favorite reality show is usually "Hell's Kitchen".

Loved your review and it actually DOES sound like a great idea for a movie. She sounds like an interesting character and very relevant to today's pop culture.

bxcrochet said...

Sounds like a great read. I love watching reality shows so this story is right down my alley.

Relity show? I liked Boston EMS 2015.

Brianna George said...

I actually know Kaira. :) She is a very nice lady. So excited for how her books have taken off.:)

Michelle Martinka said...

My favorite reality show is Master Chef Junior and Top Model! Love love love!

CourtneyLynne said...

Oooooooo my favorite would have to be any of the real housewives! Those shows are so addicting

Aeryn Lynne said...

Love how the plot lines are based around a reality tv show, that would definitely be interesting to read. Thanks for the heads up. :)

Claudette P. Esterine said...

I know how this might sound but I just do not have the time to read books as much as I once did. You have such great reviews that it will be hard to chose a few for my winter reading list.

Liz Mays said...

I remember a reality show called Laguna Beach. I wonder if that's where the author got her inspiration!

Janet Krugel said...

I agree, this sounds like it could be a TV show!

Crystal said...

What a great premise. I'm guilty of getting swept in those reality shows. I love the idea that the start themselves get caught up in the characters they've created. Hope for a happy ending, but I'll have to read to find out!

Nicole Escat said...

I haven't seen this before but it looks like a great show. I wish I can watch it over here at PH.

fee roberts said...

I'm not sure if The Voice is considered a reality show or not, but that's about as far as I go on shows of this type. I'm not really a TV person, though there are a few drama shows that I follow.

The link to follow Kaira Rouda sent me here: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Kaira-Rouda/e/B001I9VYB6/ref=ntt_athr_dp_pel_pop_1 but I can not follow because it is UK Amazon. So I put the US link: http://www.amazon.com/Kaira-Rouda/e/B001I9VYB6/ref=sr_tc_2_0?qid=1448040787&sr=8-2-ent in the entry box of the rafflecopter.

My favorite reality program is Married at First Sight. I like it because I'm super interested in the "science" of how they pair the couples and watching how they interact and learn about each other. So far though, 6 marriages, 2 are still together (2+ years) and one of these two look like they aren't going to make it. Married the First Year follows the couples after the first six weeks so you can see how they're doing. :)

Hell's kitchen is my favorite reality TV show.
