Book Blitz & Giveaway: A Hollywood Ending by Melanie Summers!


   Courtney had one arm wrapped around Damien’s muscular back, and the other one on her lap, holding her shoes and trying not to touch his chest. Damien stopped talking, but his words were working their way through her mind, embedding themselves in her heart. He was right. Her team had let her down. Maybe they didn’t deserve another chance. But she couldn’t think about that right now. One crisis at a time. She had some important decisions to make soon—but not today.
   Not while she was being carried back to the cabin by this giant of a man. He made her feel so small. So safe. And it wasn’t just the size of him or the fact that he was carrying her; it was what he was saying. Here he was, almost a stranger, showing more caring and kindness than the people whom she’d trusted with both her career and her life for years.
   Her fingers brushed against the cotton of his T-shirt and his warm, hard muscles underneath. She was shocked to realize that she was almost enjoying the feeling of being in his arms. There was no way she should be feeling anything close to that. Not given her current circumstances. Not given the nature of their relationship. He wouldn’t even call her by her first name. And yet, she couldn’t help herself. There was something so soothing about being held by him like this. She felt so cared for, even though she knew he was just being practical.
   But she could think about it, couldn’t she? Just for a moment? A little fantasy to dissolve her pain for a few seconds. Her marriage ending, her foot bleeding, the press hunting her down—it all just disappeared as he held her. She didn’t notice the exact moment when she allowed her body to melt into him, but by the time they reached the house, she had her cheek pressed against his shoulder.

When life hands you heartbreak, grab a sexy bodyguard…

America’s sweetheart Courtney Bennett had it all – fame, fortune, and a doting husband in one of Hollywood’s most powerful men. But when he trades her in for a younger actress, Courtney’s world topples down around her.

With paparazzi on her tail and nowhere to turn, she hides away in a secluded cabin in Colorado with her new (and deliciously hot) bodyguard, Damien Young.

As Courtney strives to rebuild her shattered heart, she finds herself drawn to Damien, the man determined to get her back on her feet again.

But as a man of honor, Damien won’t take advantage of a woman in such a vulnerable state, no matter how undeniable their chemistry is.

Author bio:

Melanie Summers also writes steamy romance as MJ Summers.

Melanie made a name for herself with her debut novel, Break in Two, a contemporary romance that cracked the Top 10 Paid on Amazon in both the UK and Canada, and the top 50 Paid in the USA. Her highly acclaimed Full Hearts Series was picked up by both Piatkus Entice (a division of Hachette UK) and HarperCollins Canada. Her first three books have been translated into Czech and Slovak by EuroMedia. Since 2013, she has written and published three novellas, and eight novels (of which seven have been published). She has sold over a quarter of a million books around the globe.

In her previous life (i.e. before having children), Melanie got her Bachelor of Science from the University of Alberta, then went on to work in the soul-sucking customer service industry for a large cellular network provider that shall remain nameless (unless you write her personally - then she'll dish). On her days off, she took courses and studied to become a Chartered Mediator. That designation landed her a job at the R.C.M.P. as the Alternative Dispute Resolution Coordinator for 'K' Division. Having had enough of mediating arguments between gun-toting police officers, she decided it was much safer to have children so she could continue her study of conflict in a weapon-free environment (and one which doesn't require makeup and/or nylons).

Melanie resides in Edmonton with her husband, three young children, and their adorable but neurotic one-eyed dog. When she's not writing novels, Melanie loves reading (obviously), snuggling up on the couch with her family for movie night (which would not be complete without lots of popcorn and milkshakes), and long walks in the woods near her house. She also spends a lot more time thinking about doing yoga than actually doing yoga, which is why most of her photos are taken 'from above'. She also loves shutting down restaurants with her girlfriends. Well, not literally shutting them down, like calling the health inspector or something--more like just staying until they turn the lights off.

She is represented by Suzanne Brandreth of The Cooke Agency International.
