Raphael Cruz doesn't do it. He just doesn't. Cruz doesn't fall in love. He's a "get in and get
out" kind of guy. Ladies love him and fall all over him for his swoon worthy good looks and
overwhelming sex appeal. He knows how to talk to them and tells them exactly what they want
to hear. When he's done making them scream his name, he shows them straight to the door. The
meaning of the word love doesn't exist in his world. But that could all change with a wink of a
girl's eye... And one hot-as-hell romp in a bar bathroom.
Harlow Hannum is your typical girl-next-door. She has the brains, the beauty, and the money.
What she doesn't have is the luxury of being someone's first choice in the game of love. She
always comes in a distant second place, leaving her guarded with her feelings. Lies, betrayal,
and secrets of her past follow her wherever she goes, no matter how hard she tries to hide them.
That is until she's reunited with the one guy who can ignite the spark in her heart that's been
extinguished for so long.
With sunny days, heated nights, and love lingering in the air in the beach town of Sandy Cove
anything can happen. Especially when fate steps in for Harlow and Cruz. Will their blossoming
friendship turn into unexpected love or will the collision of their opposing worlds be the end of
what could have been?

My first book, 'Reunion' debuted in November, 2012. Meant only
to be a Christmas gift to my family and closest friends, word got out, and here I am. The second
in the series, 'You Belong With Me', released in March, 2013, and the final installment in the
series, 'Letters to Luca', released August 2013.
Mom and wife by day, writer of contemporary romance by night, I
believe in soul mates, true love, and all that mushy stuff.
I wanted to fill you in on the reason for the subtitle change for my
latest work GIVING IN. This past Friday I was contacted by CreateSpace (and later in the day by
Amazon) that another author had reached out to them about a conflict regarding similarity in the
subtitle of our books. The similarity of the subtitles was not done purposely and was conceived
without knowledge of the other series (I thought I had accurately created a completely unique
subtitle name). I decided the best course of action was to immediately have my artist make an
appropriate book cover revision with the new subtitle. We contacted the other author and let her
know it would be handled immediately. She was appreciative of our quick response.
It was a stressful couple of days to see my latest labor of love being
temporarily unavailable for potential new readers for almost two days. That being said, I am
proud to release (again) the Amazon Best Selling Novel, GIVING IN:The Shore Series, Book
1. At the time of writing this, the book link subtitle has been corrected, but for some reason the
book cover image (with the new subtitle) has not been updated by Amazon.com. I was assured
this would be corrected on their end by early this week.
I appreciate the kinds words of encouragement from my readers.
Without all of you, none of this would not be possible. I look forward to having Book 2 ready for
you in early summer!
