Laguna Beach Kindle WorldDear Readers,
Welcome to the Laguna Beach Kindle World!
I’m so glad you are here and diving into this wonderful story. All of the Laguna Beach Kindle World stories are set in the same town of Laguna Beach, where my original series takes place. And if you’re familiar with the series, you’ll no doubt run across some of your favorite characters. The difference is, this book is entirely the work of the author. I didn’t help with plotting, writing or editing, but I was thrilled that when I asked her, she agreed to bring her imagination and storytelling skills to Laguna Beach!
Happy reading. For more about Laguna Beach, stop by my website: www.KairaRouda.com
Enjoy your time at the beach!

William Springs is jobless and single, something that would usually get a guy down, but it seems to be opening doors he didn’t expect. Visiting Laguna Beach for his cousin’s wedding, William meets a woman, capturing his interest at first sight.
Harper Powell has kept to herself since dating a reality star and getting dumped publicly. When meeting William at the hotel she works at, she is instantly attracted to the visiting stranger. He’s only in town temporarily, so this might be her chance to have some fun without getting hurt again.
When it’s time for William to leave, he isn’t sure he can. After all, there is nothing at home waiting for him, but in Laguna Beach, there is and her name is Harper.
Harper led William toward the water where she slipped her sandals off and walked into the water a little ways. She was surprised when he kicked his shoes and socks off, rolled his pants up and joined her.
“Wow, it’s colder than I thought.” He rubbed his hands together.
“I love it.”
William placed his hand on her lower back and she turned to him. Lust was in his eyes and she didn’t know what came over her, but she had to kiss him. He must have been feeling the same because he pulled her up against him, lowering his mouth to hers.
Never had a kiss been this sweet and seductive at the same time. He traced small circles on her lower back with his hand as his tongue met hers. She clung to his shirt, getting lost in his kiss. The sounds of laughter and waves circled around her and she could no longer tell from which direction either came.
He ended the kiss, the most adorable boyish grin on his handsome face as he stared deeply into her eyes.
“I’m sorry if that was too forward,” he said.
“It wasn’t at all. I enjoyed it and want to do it again.”
He laughed, but pulled her back to him, kissing her again. She’d never told a man she wanted him to kiss her. She wasn’t sure what came over her, but she just had to feel his lips on her again. It was worth it, the way he made her curl her toes into the squishy sand as the water rolled over their feet.
Lacey lives in Georgia with her husband, son and daughter, their herd of cats and one black lab who rules the house.
Kaira Rouda's Laguna Beach
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.

In high school, Annie Johns was the calm, supportive sidekick to the rest of the tumultuous female stars of the hit reality TV show, Laguna Nights. Today, she’s living the happy life as a mom that she predicted on the show long ago. There’s only one problem: the secret from her past that haunts her most nights, a secret that if revealed could ruin everything she shares with her husband, Hank, a man who saved her from the heartache.

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?
Once you're a star, can you trust other people’s intentions?

Jamie Kane isn’t lucky in love or life. Her childhood was tumultuous with a single mom who moved to Hollywood for fame but ended up waiting tables in Malibu. Certainly not one of the spoiled kids she went to high school and college with, Jamie has worked hard to achieve her dreams of being an actress, even as she begins to realize it’s not her calling.
