Welcome to Evergreen Grove. This eBook box set features the first three full-length novels in Elisabeth Staab's new adult series, and one bonus novella.
At the Stars
A GIRL TRYING TO LEAVE HER PAST BEHIND
I was a normal teenager who loved music and dancing, until the day I was attacked in my favorite record store. A few years later when my mom succumbed to depression and took her own life, I couldn’t stay in my hometown with all the memories and the curious stares. I decided to get in my car and just go – except my car decided it was done going outside a tiny place called Evergreen Grove. That’s where I found Jake. Or I guess Jake found me.
A GUY WHO CAN’T LET HIS GO
For the last eight years, all I can think about is the day I ended another man’s life. Then I manage to save Cassie’s, and I feel like maybe I’ve got some kind of second chance. To do what I couldn’t before, or maybe even for something bigger. Something like love. If only I could feel like I deserve her...
Acts of Creation
He's living a lie.
Dante Ramos: Champion. Ladies' man. Party animal. Women want him, and men either want to be him or put his lights out for sleeping with their girlfriends. It's all an act. Inside, he's so full of self-loathing he's on a fast-track to self-destruction.
She's living in the shadows.
Meeting Michelle at a support group for assault survivors shows Dante a new world of possibilities. Finally, someone in his life might understand him, and she creates in him a fierce need to protect. Trouble is, Dante lives his life in the spotlight, and the only thing Michelle wants is a place to hide.
By the Rules
No liars. No suits. Absolutely no straight guys…
AJ Fabin’s list of rules keeps him safe. Since getting kicked out of his parents’ home and a vicious attack by a former escorting client, his rules and his life in the tiny town of Evergreen Grove provide a quiet haven. He may be lonely, and he may stick out like a sore thumb, but the folks like him well enough. When he’s not dodging his old pimp, things are peaceful.
Hayden Price is having a quarter-life crisis. Engaged to a woman he can’t connect to and working a job he secretly hates, he comes to Evergreen Grove to help his mother through a health scare. Returning to his childhood home makes Hayden re-evaluate a lot of things, including himself. When he meets AJ and finds he can’t stand the mouthy jerk—almost as much as he can’t stop thinking about him—he has a lot more to change than his career.
To be together, they’ll both have to break all of their rules.
Marry Me, Baby
Since I retired from boxing, I’m fighting to keep my life off the damn ropes.
Lately, one thing after another’s falling apart. First there’s the road-trip on Valentine’s weekend that coulda gotten me and my girl both killed. Then came the unspoken secrets that keep putting so much distance between us.
My love for Michelle is everything that keeps me human. I can feel her slipping away. I’ve got one last shot. A desperate proposal.
And it’s all about to go wrong.
About reading order: Marry Me, Baby is labeled book 4.5 in the series because it takes place during the timeline of book 4, Piece by Piece. Since Marry Me, Baby is a continuation of book 2, Acts of Creation, I’m including it in this box set. You do not need to read book 4 before reading 4.5.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This is one of my favorite series, and I've read every book in it, including the novella. This set includes the first three books and the novella, and it's definitely worth checking out. All of these stories are full of emotion and fascinating characters. At the Stars is Cassie and Jake's story, and how they each try to get their lives put together after their pasts have left them shattered. In Acts of Creation, you have two very different characters, Dante and Michelle, who actually make a very unique pair. A.J. and Hayden's story is in By the Rules, and that one is full of surprises. Finally, you have Marry Me Baby, which once again features Dante and Michelle. I can not say enough how much I love this series. The character development is so strong and complex, that I don't want to walk away from them. They feel like friends, so it is easy to experience their emotions as I'm reading. These are the kind of books that will suck you in, take you on a roller coaster ride, and leave you with one heck of a book hangover.
