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’s Note: A Hollywood Ending is a sizzling, opposites-attract romance. It’s much spicier than a regular Melanie Summers rom-com so you may want to grab a fan (or maybe a glass of cold milk).

About the author:

Melanie Summers, Dog, Hoodie, CuteMelanie 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.

Excerpt

“Can you believe it?” Damien asked, lifting her up and spinning them in a circle.
She laughed with pure joy, her mouth mere inches from his. “I can’t. It’s too good to be true.”
He smiled up at her, loving how she felt in his arms. The scent of her perfume enveloped him, and he loved the feeling of his hands under her perfect ass, holding her against him. Her flirty, short sundress rode up, and he wanted her to wrap her legs around his waist more than anything.
Their celebratory hug quickly turned into a real embrace, and she slowly slid down his body until her feet touched the floor as they both seemed to realize what was happening. Her arms wrapped around his neck, and his were around her waist. He knew he should let go, but he couldn’t. He needed to redirect them back to celebrating, where it was safe.
“You did it,” he said, pride surging through him at how she had handled the call.
“I didn’t do anything except get the good news.” Courtney said, her voice thick with emotion.
God, she was gorgeous. “Not true. You handled that perfectly. You didn’t say too much or give anything away, just in case.”
“Do you think I need to worry about Dawn?” she asked, still not letting go.
“I don’t think so. She’s about to hand over everything you need to nail Brock’s ass to the wall. No way they’d want her to do that,” he answered, glancing down at her lips.
Lifting herself onto her toes, Courtney moved closer to him. “Good point,” she whispered. “I think it’s safe.”
“I think so too,” he said, knowing they were no longer talking about Dawn. Do not kiss her. Do not do it.
Courtney inched closer to him, her mouth so close to his that he could feel the warmth of her lips.
He swallowed hard and fought every urge he was feeling long enough to say, “We can’t do this.”
“Because I’m married?”
“Married?” His head snapped back a little. “You’re hardly married. It’s because you don’t need the complications of a rebound—and I don’t need the complications of a connection with a client.”
She nodded, disappointment filling her eyes as she slid her arms down from his neck and down to his chest. But then she gave him a sexy smile as she balled up his T-shirt with her fist. “What about a connection with a friend? Would that make it okay?”
Before he could answer, she had closed the distance between them, pulling him down until her mouth met his, hungry and wet.
