(Book 1 in the ‘Forever’ series)

Every so often someone special comes in to your life and it is so monumental that it marks time. It’s like a date is forever imprinted on your heart. After that, everything before pales in comparison and you wonder what you ever did without them….

Feeling the need for a change in life, Ava Lucas boards a plane for LA to work with her movie star sister. After making a vow to steer clear of men while she is there, she comes face to face with danger and temptation - all wrapped up in a 6 foot, blue-eyed, smoking-hot package. Her promise to herself is compromised as soon as she locks eyes with her sister’s gorgeous co-star, but already knowing his reputation with women, can she resist?

Ethan Drake is Hollywood royalty. Hot and charismatic. A total player. He sets his sights on Ava from the moment he lays eyes on her and what starts as a conquest turns into more as she manages to chip away at the walls he has built over the years to protect his heart.

Can Ava resist the powerful lure of Ethan and stay true to her promise? Can Ethan bury his demons and turn his back on his playboy ways to convince Ava to be his?

(Book 2 in the ‘Forever’ series)

When I look at you, I smile for no reason. I had no idea that the day I met you, I was meeting the person who would become not just my heart, but my everything….

Olivia Lucas is the latest Hollywood ‘it’ girl. Her first movie is a huge box-office success and she is in hot demand.  For a down-to-earth Australian girl, her life is pretty spectacular - beyond her wildest dreams in fact - and although she is revelling in the limelight, she really just wants what her younger sister Ava has…. Someone to love her for herself and not the star she has become.

Grayson Adams is the lead singer of Awesome Rebel. He is a hard-working, dedicated and supremely talented musician who has the looks to carry his talent all the way to the top. Awesome Rebel has just been signed to a major record label and Grayson’s life is about to change monumentally.

Grayson has been wildly attracted to Olivia since his best friend, Ethan, introduced them, but she has been unavailable to him…until now.

When circumstances find them both living under the same roof, a special relationship develops. When filming movies and touring with a rock band intrudes, their time together is ripped apart and the relationship is put to the test.

Can they put their relationship first while still fighting for the careers that they have both worked so hard for? Is there a way to have both?

(Book 3 in the ‘Forever’ series)

Sienna Adams wants to dance. It’s all she’s ever wanted. When she has the opportunity to tour the world and dance on stage with her brother’s band - Awesome Rebel, she takes it. But Sienna gets a lot more than she bargained for when she falls for the lead guitarist, the laid-back and gorgeous, Cooper Lane.

Falling in love wasn’t part of her plan, but sometimes plans change.

Cooper Lane loves to have fun. He’s easy-going and never takes life too seriously. Until a shock discovery in his family has him torn between touring with his band, staying with Sienna, or going back home to Australia to support his mother.

Sometimes life throws you a curve ball and the dreams that were always so important to you no longer seem so meaningful.

With everything life throws at them, Cooper and Sienna face some hard decisions. But sometimes it’s the hard times in life that make you realise which dream is the most important, and that love is all you need to carry you through.

(Books 1 ‘Forever is Mine’ and 2 ‘Forever is Yours’)

(Book 4 in the ‘Forever’ series)

Madeline Rose is one of the hottest tickets in Hollywood. Her career is soaring, making her one of the most sought after stars on the planet. After finally discovering who her mother is, and finding out about a brother that she never knew she had, everything is finally starting to make sense. Her life is full of sparkle and attention, but there is always something missing, something out of reach that she can’t quite capture.

When she embarks on a friendship with Christian Adams, brother of Awesome Rebel’s Grayson Adams, she starts to discover that the simple things in life are sometimes the best.
But can she settle for simple, when she lives a life of complicated?

Christian Adams has no interest in the Hollywood scene, but somehow he finds himself totally absorbed in it when he agrees to work on the behind-the-scenes doco of Madeline Rose’s latest blockbuster. After touring Australia with his brother’s band and spending time with Madeline, he sees her as a friend, one of his best in fact. The more time he spends with her, the more he falls, until he has a decision to make.

But how do you make a decision when you’re not sure what the options are? Christian needs to decide whether he can live a life in the spotlight, or give it all away to live the life he already knows.

Sometimes the road less travelled is the one we need to take, but taking that first step is always the hardest part.


(Book 1 in the ‘Side by Side’ series)

When Katy Lou Reynolds tags along with her boyfriend to an Underground Cage Fight the last thing she expects to find in the ring is her childhood best friend, Elijah.

Katy has carved a nice life for herself; she is a successful author, has great friends and lives in a nice apartment in San Francisco. Seeing Elijah in the ring brings back all the memories of her school years, a drunken mother, an absent father and relentless school bullies. Most of all, it re-awakens the feelings she had for him.

Elijah has always held her heart, from the age of three to now, and seeing him again brings all those feelings to the forefront.

But he left her when they were fourteen and didn’t keep in touch, so is it worth risking her heart to make him part of her life again?

Elijah Trent is a great fighter. He channels all the aggression and frustration he suffered at the hands of an abusive father in to every fight, every time. His success feeds his lifestyle full of new cities and endless women eager to spend time with him. Elijah has always regretted leaving San Francisco in such a hurry as a kid, but most of all, he regrets leaving behind his best friend Katy Lou. A friend who he loved and protected with his life.

There isn’t anything he wouldn’t give to see her again, but if he does, would she forgive him for leaving her and risk her heart?

Hi, I’m Wendy Louise.

I’m a wife and mum living in Melbourne, Australia. I love to read and write, and I somehow manage to fit writing my books in between my regular daytime duties, which include a full-time job and life in general with two busy children.

Two years ago, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. After many surgeries and treatments, I learnt that life is short and you need to grab it while you can. I always wanted to write, and I realised that it was now or never.

You can usually find me with a few books on the go at once – whether that be reading them, or writing them. I love chocolate and trashy reality TV. It’s not unusual for me to combine all these and attempt to write, while watching an episode of the Kardashians or The Bachelor, and devouring a block of Cadbury Dairy Milk.

I am so excited to bring my ‘Forever’ series to you all. It has been such a labour of love for me.  I have a number of projects in progress at the moment, and I’m excited to introduce those to you all soon.

I hope you enjoy reading my novels as much as I enjoy writing them.

Much love,

Wendy X
