In the continuation of the Crimson Point series , we get more of the amazing child Ella, and her animal love,  as this is the story of her mother, Tiana.  Poor Walter will be sorely "abused" as an orphaned litter of kittens come to need him. The connection and support of all the guys, Beckett, Jase, Noah and their ladies are a key com

Heartfelt, intense and emotional read!
This is not a typical romance between a single mom and a guy. Aiden and Tiana’s story is a suspenseful heartbreaking and heartfelt journey of overcoming the odds to get what you want.
Tiana is a woman with a lot of baggage and trust issues affecting her ability to move forward.
Will that deter Aiden from pursuing her?
Discovering how their painful story developed and what happened resonated with #me and made this story a compelling one.
The Romance Book Disciple (Samantha)

Rocky Ground centers around a single mom that readers have met in previous books. Her daughter is a precocious young girl who stole everyone's hearts. Tiana, however, is scared and overly protective after what happened (in Fractured Honor). Aiden is interested in Tiana and isn't going to let her prickly exterior push him away. Aiden has been the flirty foreign friend for the past couple books, so it was great to get his story. I have to say, with him being Scottish, I am interested in listening

The emotion I crave…

Thankfully more often that I could hope for, a series will come along that grabs, and holds, my attention. Great writing, interesting characters, intriguing situations, and heart and soul to bring it all together. Crimson Point is that series for me and Tiana, Aidan, and Ella added another story to savor…

I felt so much for Tiana’s situation. Trying her hardest to be the best mom she could, she didn’t always believe she made the best decisions. Her devotion to Ella was absolut

4.5 stars

This is the last book of the series about ex-military men living in the small town of Crimson Point. Single parent, hot Scot, some suspense. I knew I was going to like it from the start.

Tiana has had some really bad relationships in the past. She has closed off her heart and mind to being with anyone. She focuses on her daughter and that is it. Her daughter warms everyone's heart though and draws in Mac like a bee to honey. He adores her but Tiana still has her guard up.

The story take
‘Rocky Ground’ didn’t appeal personally for reasons that I’ll readily admit are formed out of my own biases: that the whole story is built around bad, past relationships and exes, where the conflict has more to do with confronting one’s own bad decision making even with the small town support rather than the military-type, global-conspiracy kind of suspense I’m so used to Kaylea Cross producing over the years.

Never more so does it look more so like Hallmark with sexy times in Cross’s Crimson Po

I think at this point it's fair to say Kaylee Cross is one of my new favorite authors. I absolutely loved the previous book in this series which was the first book I ever read by Cross. Rocky Ground was no exception. I was hooked from the first page. Tiana a single mom has had it hard, raising her daughter in her own and having found herself in some relationships with men better described as monsters, she is a little less than willing to trust anyone else.

Tiana Fitzgerald has had her share of bad relationships and after the last one she's sworn off trusting men, if not for herself then definitely for her young daughter Ella. No matter how much Aidan "Mac" MacIntyre tempts her with his Scottish accent Tiana refuses to give in to her attraction. But when unexpected circumstances have them spending more time together, Tiana realizes that Mac is indeed a good man who will respect and love her and her daughter.

Rocky Ground is book four in the series, but was easily enjoyed as a standalone. I haven’t read any of the other books in the Crimson Point series, and I was easily able to follow the plot and enjoy the characters. I enjoyed reading this book for many reasons.

Our story follows Aiden and Tiana as they navigate a few tricky situations. Not just how they fall in love, but some mystery and intrigue and more. This book kept you guessing and interested all the way through! Through it all you are rooti

What a surprise this book turned out to be. I liked it so much that I just couldn't put it down. I ended up being able to read it in one sitting. That's how fast it pulled me in. As I was reading it at first I thought, "maybe I would give it 4 stars on Amazon." It sure didn't take long for me to change my mind and decide it deserved the full 5 stars instead. Part of the reasons is because of the super good main characters and all the emotions and action in the book.

II've veen excited for Tiana's story and finding out she would be with Mac was great. Tiana is gun shy when it comes to men after her few bad experiences and she has her daughter's well being in mind now. Mac has always liked her and he is tempting with his looks and accent for sure. Due to unforeseen circumstances that literally shook things up and made them closer and see other sides of each other.

Thar was a lot going on that I didn't expect, I liked the story and characters. I dunno

It’s no secret that I LOVE romantic suspense. And Kaylea Cross is one of my automatic 1-click authors. It’s kind of sad to me that Rocky Ground brings her Crimson Point series to a close. I’ve loved all of the characters and their stories, and this story, in my humble opinion, truly is the best book in the series.
Aiden has been fascinated by Tiana for weeks, but his time in the States is running out. And she’s nowhere close to being OK with another relationship. When her past comes back to haun

A terrific romance suspense with everything you want in a page turning story. A fabulous heroine, a hot Scotsman coming to the rescue, an evil villain, and all the wonderful Crimson Point characters we came to love in previous stories. I think this is my favorite of the series with the spectacular writing and a thrilling, sexy storyline. Tiana is as fiery as her red hair and fierce especially when it comes to her daughter, Ella. What a great character she is. So strong and a survivor above all. ...more

I was thrilled to see that Aidan and Tiana were finally getting their book. These two have been in the periphery of the Crimson Point series from the start and I have been wanting more of them. And Kaylea Cross gave it to me good. Holy geez Rocky Ground was sexy and dangerous and got my heart racing for more than one reason.

Let me start with Aidan. That man- and he is alllll man stole my breath. Especially when he was so sweet towards little Ella. I loved how he saw Tiana's pain and slowly worke

Rocky Ground is Book 4 in the Crimson Point series and it was as amazing as I was expecting it to be! Tiana and Aidan’s story is a standalone but you do get snippets of them in the previous books.

Due to some really horrible past relationships, Tiana has closed off her heart from any romantic entanglements, at least until her daughter is fully grown or if ever. So when Aidan shows up into their lives, she was not very nice to him. Aidan, a very sexy Scottish Former Royal Marine, is working on wa

Exciting, surprising, sexy and heartwarming are words that describe Rocky Ground (Crimson Point #4) by Kaylea Cross. Tiana has had the worst experiences with men, and I mean the worst so she deserves someone like the Scottish serviceman Aidan. If you had read any of the previous books, you know that he is a charming sweetie. If not, that’s okay, this book reads well on its own. I will say his fellow comrades and families do make appearances when their help is needed. They are supportive friends ...more

Rocky Ground by Kaylea Cross is book four in her Crimson Point Series. The books can be read as standalones. For better understanding and simply because they're great reads, I recommend to read them in order. The previous books are Fractured Honor; Buried Lies; Shattered Vow and Rocky Ground.
Tiana Fitzgerald is woman with not much luck in relationships. She goes from one disaster to the next, picks for sure the worst guys ever. She's a single mom and has her life all mapped out.

WOW! What a way to end a series! I am sad this series had ended but I was thoroughly intrigued by the story. This is about Aidan and Tiana (and Ella). I am fascinated by this trio. I am sad that poor Ella had to go through a lot in her young life. It starts with Tiana not liking men because of her bad choices in men and they hurt her daughter. Along comes Aidan and he starts breaking down her defenses. Then the worse thing happens, an earthquake. Tiana and Aidan were in Portland when

The fourth and final book in the Crimson Point series did not disappoint. We finally got to see Aiden and Tiana's story.

I found myself wondering who the "bad guy" would be in this book. Evan? Ella's long lost biological father. Or Brian? The psycho who exposed himself to Ella in - I think - the first book in this series. No spoilers given out here but this had all the makings of a great thriller, despite knowing that the book would end with a happily ever after. The climax of the book was writt
