USA TODAY BESTSELLING AUTHOR Claudia Burgoa creates an emotional romance duet full of angst and secret pain.
I’m music royalty.
Part of Hollywood’s elite.
It’s a perk of being the only daughter of Gabe Colt and Chris Decker.
Except, no one knows my fathers are together.
They kept their marriage private along with their children.
They hid us–and their love for each other–for years.
I grew up sheltered from the celebrity world.
But I was exposed to so many lies…
All I’ve ever wanted is a normal life.
Sure, I have my brothers and the handsome, geeky Mason Bradley, but that’s not enough.
I want more.
I want romantic love.
Instead of finding it—him–I fell for Porter Kendrick.
I thought he loved me.
He only loved that I worshiped him.
After a loss that rocks my world, I find myself relying on the only friend I’ve ever had.
The first book in the Unexpected Everlasting duet will invoke tears and heartbreak in a gut-wrenching love story. This book ends on a cliffhanger that’ll change everything…
The Unexpected Everlasting Duet is based on Ainsley Decker and Mason Bradley’s story. Part of this duet was released as Unsurprisingly Complicated
A 24-hour slasher tale of angst and survival.
One night in 1999 sends four ravers into a living hell when they carelessly get their DNA on an unexplainable beheading.
There’s no liberation for Seth as he and his friends fight for their lives in the night woods. The RCMP will completely believe that these drugged-out kids at an illegal festival saw a horned man-beast decapitating people—right?
Even as the head-chopper closes in, Seth is fixated on his consumptions and love conundrums between the Rave King Dimitri and his friend April. Oh, and his older cousin Floyd shows up to shed light on the tenth anniversary of his brutal crime. These four kids are in for the rave of a lifetime.

Mistaken identity, drunk texts, and hysterical mishaps… just another day in my life.
Girls all over the world spill the tea to me about their most intimate questions.
They thank me for talking about sex with them.
For fixing their love lives.
I wonder if I’d still be a relationship influencer if they knew what a train wreck my own love life is?

Never drunk-text your ex-boyfriend.
No, seriously, that’s a terrible idea.
But if you insist, maybe double-check the number first.

An EMT in 2042 San Diego, Jack knows he won't survive the impact of the massive asteroid hurtling towards Earth. After all, he's not one of the handful of lucky lottery winners scheduled for rescue.
