Summer Lovin'

Just in time for summer, it's a fun anthology from six of our Climbing Rose authors called Summer Lovin' Here's a sneak preview of the great stories:

From Dara Edmondson, Society Girl

Country club pool boy Nick Martinez comes to the rescue of socialite Vanessa VanHorn. Although she feels an instant attraction, her friends and family will not approve. When she learns her loved ones all have ulterior motives for scuttling the relationship, she bucks their wishes and sets out explore love's possibilities.

From Laurie J. Edwards, Summer Storm

Sixteen-year-old Paige nearly drowns trying to rescue a Pomeranian trapped in the floodwaters that sweep through her town. Chase, the hottie who saves her, wants to help her and her mother, but Paige won’t accept charity. Worse yet, can she risk him unmasking the family secrets she’s kept hidden?
From Mona Ingram, Sandcastle Daze

Carolyn Butler is confused. Why is Todd Keating suddenly paying attention to her, especially when he's practically ignored her all year? Well...there was that one dance at graduation, but since then they haven't spoken. He's good-looking, has a great truck and his family practically owns the whole town but she's not even sure she likes him. So why is she looking forward to seeing him again tomorrow?
From Kimberlee R. Mendoza, Wish Upon A Rock Star

Robin Moss is a big time Reconcile fan. When she finally has her chance to meet the lead singer, Brody X, she chokes. Then on summer vacation in the middle of nowhere at the Lake Oasis Spa & Resort she meets the owner's son, Jake Scott (a.k.a. Brody X). Only she doesn't know it's him. He's changed his appearance and is using his real name.

At first Jake is suspicious of Robin, because she's a big fan of his band, but when he realizes she has no idea who he is, he decides to get to know her. They have amazing chemistry but when she finds out the truth, she's furious. Can she find a way to forgive him?

From Sydney Shay, Saddle Up, Sweetheart

What happened after their New Year's Eve kiss?

Russ and Natalie flirt, but now that she's works at his family’s Lucky Lake Ranch, a romance grows. While Natalie aims for their life together, Russ only thinks of work.
Their future may be planned for them. His father gives Natalie two weeks notice, making her last day the Fourth of July. Does Russ love her more than Lucky Lake? Natalie's determined to find out and is ready to change his mind if he doesn't.

And last but certainly not least, from June Sproat

Caroline Jane Edmonds, CJ to her friends and family, has the perfect summer planned. She calls it the TSL summer: tanning, swimming and love, and not necessarily in that order.

But when the first day of summer rolls around, CJ’s plan gets pulled out from beneath her when her father decides she needs a summer job. He even picks out the job: working at the miniature golf course and driving range for the park district where he is the director.

Now all she has to do is combine her ideal summer plans into her new job and she’ll have a hole in one--otherwise her whole summer will be way below par.

Perfect, just perfect!
