Can you believe it is fall already? It may seem nuts (particularly for those of us down south, where the temperature can still easily climb into the 90’s during the day), but September 22 marked the official start of autumn. It feels as though I blinked and the season was totally gone.
I want a do-over.
In fact, I want to give al1 of you a do-over too!
The start of fall is the perfect time to read a beach romance, and my newest historical release, SUMMER IS FOR LOVERS ought to fit the bill. Based in the Victorian seaside resort of Brighton, it features a heroine who swims, a tortured hero determined to not get tangled up (again!) with an innocent young woman, and a whole lot of sun, water, and waves. I loved tackling the social swirl outside a typical London Season, and it was fun to imagine how Brighton may have filled that void for Londoners looking for an escape from London’s summer drudgery.
I also *may* have written one of the only historical kisses to be set in one of these torturous Victorian bathing boxes.
His heart is unavailable. Luckily, her interest lies in the rest of him…
Though she was just a girl when they first met, Caroline Tolbertson’s infatuation with David Cameron remains undimmed. Now fate has brought the handsome Scotsman back to Brighton for what promises to be an unforgettable summer. Soon, Caroline will have to choose a husband, but for now she is free to indulge her curiosity in things of a passionate nature.
That is, if David will agree to teach her.
Past mistakes have convinced David he’ll make a terrible husband, though he’ll gladly help the unconventional Caroline find a suitor. Unfortunately, she has something more scandalous in mind. As the contenders for her hand begin to line up, her future seems assured…provided David can do the honorable thing and let them have her.
I wrote part of this book on a family beach vacation at the Outer Banks of North Carolina, and confess I would rather be lounging and reading on a beach than anywhere else in the world. I hope you enjoy SUMMER IS FOR LOVERS, and would love to hear where your favorite beach destination might be!
Length: 384 pages
Publisher: Avon (September 24th, 2013)
David Cameron has been tricked. After bringing his supposedly ailing mother to Brighton to take the waters, he’s found himself bombarded with young ladies of marriageable age, while his mother has made a marked improvement. Seeking respite from the hordes, he retreats to a beach he hasn’t seen in years--and finds a woman he’s never quite been able to forget.
Caroline Tolbertson just wants to be left alone. But her mother is determined to see her married off, no matter Caroline’s protests--or her embarassing lack of suitors. Seeing David Cameron, her childhood crush, again sets her heart racing, but she’s older and wiser now. And no, that wasn’t her heart sinking when David suggested a faux courtship instead of the real thing.
But Caroline has never been very good at following the rules, and the fake attraction soon grows into the real thing. Now Caroline has more scandalous pursuits in mind and David is finding it very hard to say no to his gorgeous friend. Will giving in to temptation send them both down a path they each claim to abhor--straight to the altar?
