I hope so! A Beautiful Star will be releasing on November 17, and I can’t tell you how much fun it is for me to be back in the Beautiful Series world again. I’ve really loved writing about Sandra and Jonathan, they have this great chemistry that can’t be denied no matter how much Sandra tries to fight it!
I’m about to show you the final cover and the blurb, but before I do, here are some fun facts about the Beautiful Series that you’ll learn in A Beautiful Star.
- Sandra is Lisa’s best friend in A Beautiful Rock. She’s also the reporter Marcus sleeps with at the very end of Melody! :O
- In A Beautiful Rock, Sandra mentions that she met a guy called Brad in the lift at work, she pretended to be a ghost and he pulled her hair, well, he’s in A Beautiful Star too!
- Brad, is friends with Elliot from Struggle and Forever.
- ALL of your favourite couples will make an appearance in the book, so you’ll get to check in with them and see how they’re going.
Ok! That’s all I can tell you without giving too much away! So, here’s the cover, below is the synopsis and below that is an excerpt from the book and THEN, if you’re still with us, there are preorder links for iBooks, Kobo, and Nook (Amazon will go live for release day).

BEAUTIFUL SERIES, BOOK FIVE – MAY BE READ ON ITS OWN OR AS A PART OF THE SERIES.
When Jonathan decided to help Lisa, he was trying to atone in some way for his past sins. He certainly wasn’t expecting to be pulled into a night full of hiding out from the press with a journalist called Sandra Haegen, and almost being choked to death by a rockstar in love with his ex.
When Sandra decided to help Lisa by feeding Perry, she was just trying to be a good person. She also wasn’t expecting to spend the night hiding from the press. Even more so, she wasn’t expecting to spend the night with one of Australia’s hottest young actors, Jonathan Masters. She also wasn’t expecting to save his life.
And that’s just the beginning.
From there, these two must find a way live with the past and look to the future – no matter what the personal cost.
The next morning, I head into work to find yet another gift waiting for me on my desk. It’s a small white box with a blue ribbon tied around it, and the sight of it makes me stop in my doorway and immediately pull out my phone.
“This needs to stop,” I say to myself with an annoyed shake of my head as I pull up Jonathan’s number and dial. He picks up within two rings.
“Good morning, Red,” he chirps.
“Stop sending me things,” I demand immediately.
“You’ve got the wrong guy this time. Whatever you have, it wasn’t me. Maybe it was from that pretty boy you were kissing in the papers the other day.”
“He’s not a pretty boy. You’re a pretty boy.”
“That’s very sweet of you to say,” he jokes.
“Well, I’m a sweetheart, what can I say. Listen, sorry to attack you, I should have checked the card first.”
“You can call me anytime, for anything. I won’t hold it against you.”
“Ok,” I laugh. “I’m hanging up now.”
“Alright, you do that. But, Red, when am I going to see you again?”
“I haven’t decided on that yet.”
“You’re hurting me. I just want to be your friend and you’re putting up road blocks.”
“I’m totally not buying this friend act.”
“You should, because it can’t be more unless you want it to be. Besides, we have fun. We get along. You want fun, right?”
“You’re trying too hard, Jonathan. I’m going now.”
I can hear the smile in his voice. “Bye, Red.”
Hitting the end call button, I walk over to my desk and pull the blue ribbon on the box to get to the card.
For your tastebuds.
Smiling, I open the box and find a red velvet cupcake inside. When I bite into it–and yes, I eat it immediately–it’s the softest, most flavour-filled baked treat I have ever had the pleasure of eating–and I’ve eaten a lot, so I know what I’m talking about.
“You are very popular lately,” Erin, our receptionist comments on her way past my office. “You’re getting more deliveries than anyone else here. And the guy who dropped that off was H-O-T. Oh my lord, you are one lucky woman.”
“He was here?” I ask, pointing at the box as I talk through a mouthful of cake.
“I think so. Dark hair, brown eyes, tatts all over his arms? He was wearing a white bonds shirt, a pair of jeans, and some Vans. He didn’t seem like a courier to me.”
“That’s him alright. How long ago?”
“Maybe an hour? I told him you don’t get in until nine.”
I swallow the last of the cake and lick the crumbs off my fingers and my lips, apologising that there was only one in the box as I do. Then I thank Erin for dropping by and when she leaves, turn to my phone again, this time ringing the correct person for a thank you.
