New Beach Reads for #RB4U fans!




Summer is upon us--finally! One of my favorite things to do during the warmer months is to sit out on my deck with a cool drink and read a great book. I love losing myself in worlds that other people created. When we go on vacation, I bring along four or five books and settle in a comfy lounge chair. Some people don't understand how I can be so sedentary, but in my day-to-day life I'm constantly chasing my two young kids. When I'm on vacation I want to relax!

I know I'm not the only one who feels this way. That's why I always to have one or two books come out early in the sumer months. There's nothing worse than settling in by the pool and discovering you have nothing to read.

So, here are the books that came out this past month. Happy reading!


Nine romance stories of love, lust, and passion from multi-published, award-winning, and best-selling authors.
Genres include: contemporary, fantasy/other world, m̩nage, BDSM, romantic suspense, paranormal РALL with a high heat level.
My contribution:
Back to Basics (contemporary scorching) by Suzanne Rock:
Stuck in a dead-end relationship with someone who cares more about image than feelings, Theo Nash has all but given up on love. Then an exotic dancer catches him off guard, and he learns that happiness can strike when you least suspect it. Humiliated and down on her luck, Celeste performs an impulsive act with a man she barely knows, and the results end up being more than she ever dreamed possible.

Fast-talking career woman Olivia Bremner is at the peak of her profession. Employed by one of the country’s most influential magazines, she spends her days dining with celebs and taking her pick of free products from designers and cosmetic companies. Every woman’s dream job, basically. So what if it’s a little lonely at the top. Success often comes at a price, right?

Nayef “Nayo” Darzi is used to getting his way. The wealthy prince can have any beauty he wants—until danger throws him together with a stubborn American, perhaps the first woman unaffected by his alpha tendencies. Tattooed and contentious women aren’t his thing—normally. But there’s something about Olivia and her sexy curves that makes Nayo want to take a big bit. If he can keep her out of trouble long enough…

A lifetime New Englander, Suzanne married her college sweetheart and has been with him for over twenty years. Every summer she drags her husband and two daughters to Maine on a quest for the perfect lobster dinner. Every fall she can be found down in Foxboro, Massachusetts cheering on her favorite football team. In between those trips, she’s a chauffeur, a maid, a chef, an event planner, a hairdresser, a wardrobe stylist, a tutor and a sometimes masseuse. To keep her sanity, she often drinks copious amounts of coffee and stares at the blank screen of her laptop, dreaming of great adventures. Sometimes she even writes them down for others to enjoy.

Excerpt:

The door to the adjoining sitting room was open, and she could see Aunt Mel’s army trunk in the middle of the floor, papers scattered around it. Her heartbeat picked up, the thudding loud in her ears. Mel hadn’t opened that trunk in almost twenty-five years, not even when Ryann begged to see the contents. Her aunt didn’t want to be reminded of those last days in Vietnam, when Saigon fell and she’d barely made it out alive.

Ryann hadn’t understood, and no amount of wheedling on her part had changed Aunt Mel’s stance. As an adult, she understood. Mel didn’t want to go back to Vietnam, even in her mind.

“So what changed, Aunt Mel?” Her words were soft, barely a whisper in the silence of the room.

She dropped to her knees next to the open trunk and looked inside for the first time. She picked up the small nurse’s cap, shaking fingers smoothing the crisp material, her heart in her throat. The trunk was small, and it was far from filled. She set the cap aside, lifted the uniform, and spotted a photo album. She settled more comfortably on the floor and opened the book, looking at the photos with near reverence. Mel and her fellow nurses, all smiles, she could almost imagine their laughter and see the sparkle of adventure in their eyes. Further into the album, the smiles vanished, the disillusionment was impossible to deny. When she reached the last page, she noticed several photos had been removed.

She put the album back in the trunk and stood, heading for her aunt’s favourite armchair, and the pile of paper sitting on the table beside it. There were several books stacked neatly in the opposite chair, but it was the letter on top of the polished table that caught her attention. Guilt assailed her when she picked up the single sheet of heavy paper. Shaking her head, she unfolded the page and read:

My dearest Melinda,
Twenty-five years have passed, some of them so quickly I can hardly remember where they started or ended. What I do recall is that each of them was less than it might have been if they’d been shared with you. Our time has come, at last. I know you never married after we returned from Saigon, and I can see you now, frowning as you consider how I have such knowledge. Yes, I did keep tabs on you, but I never broke the promise we made. I lived my life. My wife died many years ago. I wanted to contact you then, but honoured your request that we not speak again until this year. I have much to tell you, but all that seems important are the words I left you with back in 1975, I love you.
Much has changed, my entire life in fact. Enclosed are tickets for Greece, home to me now. I want you with me, to see the turn of the millennium in six months, and to share whatever remains of our lives.
Love, Luke

Sure enough, under the letter was another envelope, and a brief look confirmed it was the airline ticket “Luke” had referred to. Stunned, Ryann sat back in the chair and stared at the room, seeing nothing. Aunt Mel had never mentioned anyone from Vietnam, yet she’d been loved by this soldier, and apparently had loved him, too.

Her gaze went to the books in the chair. Would she find answers between the covers of those books? She’d be invading Aunt Mel’s most personal space. If she wanted to know, this was the only way she’d find out more. Sighing, she reached for the first of the journals Aunt Melinda had kept throughout her life. There was a reason she’d been looking at these books…
