Just finished the book. Have to say I loved it! Loved the characters. Didn't want it to end . Have to tell you that I usually read thrillers (James Patterson). Loved loved this book. Cannot wait for your next one. Sharon Schwarcz

I enjoyed this book very much! It's a fast paced love story with complex characters. A great read to take your mind off these trying times. Gail Gamache

Just finished reading Summer Temptation, couldn’t put it down. The author’s vivid description of the resort, where the story takes place, made me feel I was right there. What a great story of love between a mature man and a young woman. Claudia Donovan

Cartoon Bear

An epic journey of love and heartbreak.

Nick, the golden boy of a small New England town, married to his high school sweetheart with three beautiful children...from the outside, it seems an idyllic life. But when tragedy strikes, Nick is tested in a way he never could have imagined in his wildest dreams. He is left rattled to the foundations of his very structured life.

Sweet and naive Kelly likens herself to living on shifting sand. An erratic and capricious family life has left her questioning who she really is. She desperately needs an anchor in her life. She thinks it's Nick.

Spoiled and self-centered rich girl Emleigh wants the one thing in her life she can't buy, and that's Nick. She'll try every trick in the book to get him and she doesn't care who gets hurt in the fallout. 

When fate brings the three of them together at a summer resort, the results are intense and electric, with a twist that will leave you reeling.
