Author’s favorite thing about Summer


Shannon Stacey –

My favorite thing about summer is going to camp. Whether we ride our ATVs or just sit on the deck of the camper and read, it’s nice to get away from the house and relax. There’s nothing better than sitting around a campfire, sharing stories and laughter with friends and family.

Hailey Genest has seen most of her friends marry and have babies, and she’s happy for them, but it was a lot easier before she hit forty. She’s spent her entire life in Whitford, Maine, and if she hasn’t found her Prince Charming by now, she has to accept she’s probably not going to. When a new friend suggests they go on an adventure and embrace being single, Hailey agrees.

Surviving in the woods is game warden Matt Barnett’s idea of a relaxing vacation. But when he meets two women in need of help, he leads them back to safety – a task that proves more fun than expected, thanks to a certain hot blonde. He can’t resist pushing her buttons, even though she’s made it clear that the rugged, outdoorsy type just isn’t for her.

Hailey is glad to see the back of her tempting-tour-guide-slash-pain-in-the-ass. When he shows up in her life again, she’s determined to avoid him, no matter how good he looks in his uniform. But that’s easier said than done in Whitford, especially when he’s renting the house right next door..

My favorite thing about summer is sunshine! I took it for granted growing up in L.A., but now that I live in Seattle, the sun is like a rare and precious jewel that only comes out in the summer months… and not always then.\

when we met

WAITING ON YOU: Amazon | Barnes & Noble GoodReads

 New York Times bestselling author Susan Mallery invites you back to Fool’s Gold, where a newcomer to town might finally meet the man she never knew she needed… 

Angel Whittaker earned his scars the hard way, but the scars that can’t be seen are the ones that haunt him the most. Since he moved to Fool’s Gold, California, he’s cobbled together a life for himself as a bodyguard trainer. If he’s not exactly happy, at least his heart is safe. 

Working with pro-football superstars taught tough-talking PR woman Taryn Crawford one thing—she can go toe to toe with any man. But then dark, dangerous former Special Ops Angel targets her for seduction…and challenges her to resist his tempting kisses. 

Even in four-inch heels, Taryn never backs down. Unless, somehow, Angel can convince her that surrender might feel even better than victory.

Kristan Higgins –

What I love most about summer is the long evenings, sitting on the porch, the kids goofing around in our field, the dog chasing them, the fireflies have just started winking. Maybe we’re listening to a ball game on the radio. The tree frogs start talking, and the wood thrush, the last bird to go to bed, sings until it’s almost completely dark.

Does being nobody’s fool mean that you’re nobody’s love?

Colleen O’Rourke is in love with love… just not when it comes to herself. Most nights, she can be found behind the bar at the Manningsport, New York, tavern she owns with her twin brother, doling out romantic advice to the lovelorn, mixing martinis and staying more or less happily single. See, ten years ago, Lucas Campbell, her first love, broke her heart… an experience Colleen doesn’t want to have again, thanks. Since then, she’s been happy with a fling here and there, some elite-level flirting and playing matchmaker to her friends.

But a family emergency has brought Lucas back to town, handsome as ever and still the only man who’s ever been able to crack her defenses. Seems like maybe they’ve got some unfinished business waiting for them—but to find out, Colleen has to let her guard down, or risk losing a second chance with the only man she’s ever loved.

I love the freedom to be spontaneous! With the kids out of school we can pick up and do all kinds of things at a moment’s notice, stay up late to roast marshmallows on the deck and sleep in the next morning.

avenge me

AVENGE ME: Amazon | Barnes & Noble GoodReads


Austin Treffen was born into a world of privilege, but behind its gilded doors lies a corruption so sordid New York’s elite would never believe it—especially as his infamous philanthropic father is at its core! With everything he believed in shattered, how can Austin take down his father—risking his family name and those he loves—without any proof? 

Until one earth-shattering night with Katy Michaels unlocks not only their deepest, most passionate desires but also the key to bringing Jason Treffen’s reign to an end. But with an intense sexual attraction that combines a heady mix of exquisite pleasure and sublime pain, will they satiate their thirst for revenge and each other…or lose themselves forever in the darkness?

four friends

FOUR FRIENDS: Amazon | Barnes & Noble | GoodReads

Gerri can’t decide what’s more devastating: learning her rock-solid marriage has big cracks, or the anger she feels as she tries to repair the damage. Always the anchor for friends and her three angst-ridden teenagers, it’s time to look carefully at herself. The journey for Gerri and her family is more than revealing—it’s transforming.

Andy doesn’t have a great track record with men, and she’s come to believe that for her a lasting love is out of reach. When she finds herself attracted to her down-to-earth, ordinary contractor—a man without any of the qualities that usually appeal to her—she questions everything she thought she wanted in life.

Sonja’s lifelong pursuit of balance is shattered when her husband declares he’s through with her New Age nonsense and walks out. There’s no herbal tonic or cleansing ritual that can restore her serenity—or her sanity. 

Miraculously, it’s BJ, the reserved newcomer to Mill Valley, who steps into their circle and changes everything. The woman with dark secrets opens up to her neighbors, and together they get each other back on track, stronger as individuals and unfaltering as friends

Virginia Campbell

Long, sunshiney Summer days. Evenings cooking on the grill and sitting outside until the coals die out. Garden-ripe, homegrown tomatoes–sliced and served on fresh, hot biscuits loaded with real butter. Plenty of sweet iced tea with lemon to help you make it through the heat. Feeling lighter, freer and back to being a barefoot child.

jodi marinich

hanging out with the kids

Sierra McBride

The heat and renewal of the trees, grass and flowers. It is just beautiful.
The shining sun never fails to make me happy.
Thank you for the chance !!

Being in the water, be it a pool, a lake or the ocean is the best thing about summer for me!

Julie K

Spending time with my family and friends…..during the school year the kids sports and clubs keeps us so busy that we don’t have ‘quality time’. Summer affords us longer days and time to just soak things in (like a good book, time by the water, vacation)

Texas Book Lover

Laying out on my hammock and reading while my kids are playing. So relaxing!
