I’m delighted to announce I’ve accepted a contract with The Wild Rose Press for my second contemporary romance novel, Summertime Dream.
Here’s the preliminary blurb:
The Fourth of July is over, but for these summer lovers the fireworks have just begun.
An unexpected inheritance brings business consultant Christopher Gordon from Los Angeles to quaint Falk’s Bend. He’s carved a week from his demanding schedule to list his great-grandparents’ house for sale and explore his roots. However, disturbing family secrets and the sweet temptation of writer Margie Olsson derail his tidy plans, challenging him to seize the elusive dream he’d dismissed from his hectic life— love.
A brush with death shook Margie’s life, but not her dreams and she’s ready to move forward. Only, standing up to her loving, over-protective family isn’t easy. Helping Christopher explore the derelict mansion and unravel his grandmother’s mysterious past should be a harmless fun taste of independence. But when her experimental summer fling ignites into unexpected love, how can her small town dreams work with his big city life?
I had a fun time writing Christopher and Margie’s story. They appeared in Clear As Day as friends of Nate and Kay and I had wondered how they had met. Asking that one little question led to others and Summertime Dream bloomed from idle curiosity to a full-blown novel.
The release date is still to be determined, but I’ll be keeping progress posted here on the blog and my website.
