About the Set:
You can now get all four Amazon best-selling novellas in the Seasons of Change series, plus two exclusive short stories, in one box set. These feel-good contemporary romances follow the seasons as characters change for the better, find themselves, and overcome fears. 
All of the novellas are standalone reads, but can be enjoyed as a series because characters overlap. This box set includes:

Summer Demons: Jenna Shaw jumped on a plane and flew to Portugal to try and forget her past. However, forced to deal with her memories due to an ill-timed joke, Jenna’s holiday is derailed by the charismatic Ethan Brooks. She sees him as an annoyance; he sees her as a challenge. And when all of his usual tricks only serve to push her away, Ethan has to work harder than ever if he wants to win over and help his mysterious girl.

Winter Angel: When Amy’s suggestion of a beach holiday is overruled in favour of skiing she couldn’t have predicted it might make her break the one, and only, rule she has: not to commit to a serious relationship again. The minute she sees Luke, she knows something’s wrong, and her desire to fix people means she wants to be the one to help him. However, she didn’t go on holiday to fall for someone, and whether or not she can move past her insecurities will depend on whether Luke can face his biggest fear.

Autumn Ghosts: Only one person knows what truly lies in Ellie Jeffords’ heart, and that’s herself. Hating the course she is studying, Ellie is failing and when a friend’s cousin, Justin, offers to tutor her, she jumps at the chance. However, as the pressure of exams starts to break Ellie, Justin wants her to confide in him. The only problem is that he can’t persuade her to talk without revealing his own dark secret, and forcing Ellie to choose between her parents’ dreams and her own will cost her something she loves.

Spring Knight: Kayleigh Barrow is most comfortable on stage where she can pretend she’s someone else, but when auditions for the latest production are opened up to the entire university, the lines between fantasy and reality start to blur. Thrown together with renowned player, Aiden Hanson, she can no longer hide her feelings for him. However, he’s never had a serious relationship and Kayleigh refuses to be another conquest. When her acting starts to become real and she can no longer hide behind her character, Kayleigh must decide whether Aiden’s worth the risk, or if he will end up breaking her heart.

Plus 2 exclusive short stories:
Summer Revenge: 
Jenna promised she’d get Ethan back for his prank, and it’s time to cash in. Read about what happened after the couple left Portugal.
Season of Love:
 There’s beach fun, flirting, and mischief as all of the Seasons of Change couples take part in a beach competition.

MRP would like to extend a very warm welcome to Mia Hodell, author of the Seasons of Change boxed set.

Mia: Hi everyone, today I have with me Kayleigh and Aiden from my fourth novella Spring Knight. They’ve kindly allowed me to interview them for you.

Aiden: Hi everyone, great to be here!

Kayleigh: Hello.

Mia: So, Kayleigh, it’s safe to say that your relationship had an unusual start. What did you think when he first showed up in your drama rehearsal?

Kayleigh: Um … I think I was a little more worried by the fact I was about to jump off a platform really. It did cross my mind why he was there, but most of my attention was on not breaking my neck.

 Aiden: She scared the hell out of me, that’s for sure.

Kayleigh: When I finally found out the reason, though, I thought it was a wind up. He’s not the type to audition for the university’s production.

Mia: No, he definitely isn’t. Were you surprised when he noticed you?

Kayleigh: Of course, I mean I’m not someone people notice very often. I don’t like being the centre of attention unless I’m on stage, and he’s a big name on campus. It made me feel uneasy.

Aiden: [puts his arm around her shoulders and pulls her against him] She made me work for her, which was a first. I’ve never had someone say no to me, but she’s worth all of the effort and more.

Mia: Well now you’ve brought it up, what was that like? And how long did you know that Kayleigh was the one for you?

Aiden: I can’t reveal everything, can I? That would ruin my reputation. I think a guy’s entitled to some secrets.

Mia: Okay, I guess the readers will just have to pick up your book to find out. My next question is, what was it like being in the show?

Aiden: Terrifying. I’m not usually one to admit when I’m scared, but being on that stage—just the thought even—made me want to puke. It did give me a newfound respect for Kay. I honestly don’t know how she does it.

Kayleigh: It’s not that bad. And anyway, it serves you right for not being able to turn down a challenge. He did great, though; you wouldn’t have known it was his first time.

Aiden: And last.

Mia: You can’t see yourself ever up there again, Aiden?

Aiden: Hell no, not if I have anything to do with it! I’ll support Kay in the audience from now on.

Kayleigh: [looking at him with a devilish smile] What if I bet you two hundred pounds you can’t do it again?

Mia: Are you sure you know what you’re doing, Kayleigh?

Aiden: I’d listen to her if I were you. You know I don’t turn down money, and you know I always win.

Kayleigh: Prove it then. I bet you two hundred pounds that you won’t perform in the next university production.

Aiden: You’re on, but you’re going to lose.

Kayleigh: Really? I control who gets cast. [she laughs at his shocked expression as he tries to respond]

Mia: I think she’s beaten you there, Aiden.

Aiden: Yeah, she probably has, but I have my ways of convincing her to do things. [turns to Kayleigh] Remember what happened last time you tried to trick me?

Kayleigh: You don’t scare me anymore, Aiden. I know all of your weaknesses. [he moves to kiss her]

Mia: Okay, I think that’s all we’ve got time for guys. Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you let him perform, Kayleigh. I’d love to see him play a fairy godmother.

 Kayleigh: [laughing] That’s a brilliant idea!

Aiden: Thanks, Mia … really … just thanks … [groans]

Mia: No problem, Aiden. I’m always happy to help out. Good luck!

Thank you so much for joining us today, Mia. We really enjoyed the visit. Good luck and great sales with the Seasons of Change Box Set.
