Release day!

It’s release day for Slow Summer Kisses! Cam and Anna are in the wild. And speaking of in the wild, I’m running amok at Novel Thoughts, talking about my favorite summer things. Stop by and comment for a chance to win a $25 gc to the online bookstore of your choice! I had a blast writing this novella and I really you’ll enjoy reading it, too!

What’s it about?

Anna Frazier is used to living life at 100 mph, but being downsized out of a job in the financial industry has her permanently stalled. With nowhere to go, go, go, Anna hails a cab to her grandparents’ neglected New Hampshire camp to plan her next move. It seems like a good idea—until she realizes there’s no takeout to be had and the boy next door has grown into a sexy but surly recluse.

Cameron Mayfield knows he can kiss his peace and quiet goodbye when Hurricane Anna blows in. She was loud and bossy as a ten-year-old—and besides developing some attractive curves, she hasn’t changed. Cam’s not looking for a relationship, especially not with a woman like Anna. He nearly broke down on that road once before. So why can’t he stop thinking about her?

It’s not long before their sizzling attraction leads to smoking-hot kisses. But as the days get shorter, Anna must decide if she’s found a new road to happiness, or just taken a detour.

You can read chapter one here!

    Bought my copy from Carina this morning. Sadly real life is messing with my reading time today, but I am hoping to start it this evening.

    My editor loved Mitch, so that makes it easier for me to be excited about the fall, too, rather than having anxiety. (Although, if she hadn’t loved him, she would have made me fix him, so it would come out the same, I guess.)

    I can’t wait to get permission to share the blurbs, and I’m DYING to see covers!
