Bring a fire extinguisher...
THE COMPASS SERIES
(Coming February 1, 2021)
She's the wildcard he never expected to be dealt...
I’m a woman in exile.
Well . . . okay, maybe that’s a little extreme. My boss called it a temporary leave of absence, right before he offered me a promotion on my way out the door.
What does one do with two weeks to kill and big life decisions to make? If you’re me, you hop a plane to Alaska for a solitary retreat.
I wanted silence and tranquility. The time and space to think. I wasn’t prepared for what I got: THE Wes Emerson.
The Australian actor is too gorgeous—and too irresistible—for his own good. An infuriating mix of cocky and charismatic, he’s made it his mission to antagonize me.
But no matter how much I want to believe his flirting is genuine, I’m not stupid. Let’s be real, Wes is way out of my league, and I’ll be an afterthought as soon as this vacation is over.
It was supposed to be a guys’ trip.
Just me and my best mates at a remote lodge in Alaska’s Far North. They promised a breather from the stifling attention. Nature. Seclusion. Two weeks with no cameras, no autographs, and definitely no women.
Tell that to the snarky New York nurse who snagged the resort’s last vacancy.
Lena Hamilton is the wildcard I never expected to be dealt.
She’s got a dirty mind and a smart mouth. She doesn’t just rattle my cage, she bites back, pushing buttons I didn’t know I had. Her soft heart and fiery spirit make me ache for things I’ve sworn off for years. Something more. Something deeper.
Lena doesn’t believe I truly want her, but when we find ourselves at the mercy of the Alaskan wilderness, she has no choice but to trust me.

Wilderness takes on many forms...
Alaska was a brutal hostess.
I spent three weeks lost in the wilderness with celebrity heartthrob, Wes Emerson. Sharing a tent with the Australian actor was one thing. Opening my heart? That was a totally different ballgame—and you guessed it—he won.
Wes is the embodiment of warmth, strength, and shelter. We forged a soul-deep connection in the face of peril and uncertainty.
Too bad our rescue was only the beginning.
When reality comes knocking, it hits hard. I’m an ordinary nurse from upstate New York. He’s a Hollywood A-lister who lives on a different continent. Our lifestyles are worlds apart.
What happens without Mother Nature to level the playing field?
Can our love withstand the noise, chaos, and media attention?
Yeah, Wes and I conquered the Far North, but we discover wilderness can take on many forms . . .
Alaska changed me.
But it was Lena Hamilton who saved my life and transformed me into a better man.
Equal parts vulnerable and fierce, the snarky spitfire stole my heart within days of us meeting. She loves me for who I am—not what I can offer—and that’s something I’ve never had before.
Lena is my true north, the woman I’ve been searching my whole life for. Now I need to prove my commitment across an ocean of differences.
The North Star shines brighter in darkness, but city lights and camera flashes have a way of drowning out the night sky. Sure, we were destined to spark and catch fire, but do we have what it takes to keep burning?
We survived the first leg of our journey, but it looks like Lena and I aren’t out of the woods yet.
