I am more than my scars.
It took me a long time to realize it, but it’s true. The fire that killed my entire family didn’t kill me. There were times when I wished it had.
But now I’m starting a new life: college, a new town, and an apartment with my best friend. I never expected that new life to include him.
My name is Paige Hill, and I fell in love with the campus playboy. Star soccer player, gorgeous, and a renowned player at the U of R, Clay Forbes drew me in and never let go. But his reformed playboy ways haven’t deterred his ex, Hannah, from painting a huge target on my back.
She’s out to get me, and every move she makes is one step closer to bringing me to my knees. The campus I’ve grown to love is about to be torn apart by a horrific crime.
But who will be left standing when the dust settles: Hannah or me?
How do you keep living when the center of your world disappears without a trace?
You put one foot in front of the other every day. And you fight like hell to find her and bring her home.
I’m Clay Forbes, and I was charged with murder the same day my girlfriend Paige left town with her ex. Fighting the charges isn’t going to be easy, but I know that without Paige by my side my chances of making it through this are slim.
I need her.
When I find her, I’ll convince her to come back to Rutherford, back to her college classes, and back to me. I’ll protect her from the murderer who still roams our small college town.
I’ll show her that I can be the man she needs. And no matter what happens, I’ll never let her go a
What do you do when the strongest girl in the world falls apart?
You hold her. And you stroke her hair. And you whisper to her that everything is going to be all right.
Even if you’re not sure it will be.
I’m Drew Garrick, and I was never supposed to fall in love with Gillian Ambrose. It wasn’t part of the plan. Sleep with her? Yes. Have a good time with her while our best friends fell in love? Yes. But fall for her? Never.
The plan changed the moment her brother was released from prison, and all the dangers of his old life reared their ugly heads.
“Protect her,” he said.
And that’s what I promised to do.
Whatever it took.

3 College Romances that will steal your heart!
Book 1: OUT OF THE ASHES (Paige and Clay)
Paige Hill, a recovered burn victim, lost everything in her family’s house fire. As she picks up the pieces and enters college with the help of her best friend, Clay Forbes walks into her life…and everything changes. The sexy, bad-boy soccer star turns Paige’s world upside down in the best way. But when his ex decides she’ll do whatever it takes to get rid of Paige, their romance could be cut short…and so could someone’s life.
Book 2: SETTLING ASHES (Clay and Paige, continued)
Clay Forbes’ mission in life? Prove he’s innocent of murder and find his girlfriend Paige so that he can fix the damage that’s been done. Before it’s too late. There’s only one problem: he has no idea where Paige is, and she’s taken off with her old high-school sweetheart, Beau. Tracking her down won’t be easy and convincing her of his love will be even harder, especially when there’s still a murderer at large in their small college town.
Book 3: ASHES ADRIFT (Gillian and Drew)
Gillian Ambrose has her act together. She’s nearly finished with her Fashion degree, she’s launching a successful lingerie line, and she’s left the scars from her past back in her old hometown. Until her brother is released from prison and the all drama she left behind comes barreling back again.
Drew Garrick never planned to fall for Gillian. They were thrown together again and again when their best friends began dating. One night with her in his bed to get her out of his system, that’s all he wanted. But now that her brother is back in town and he’s asked Drew to protect Gillian from his revenge-seeking enemies, Drew has to admit the truth to himself: he fell for Gill when she fell into his bed. And now, there’s no going back.
