It's Gonna Be a Hot One

With warmer weather finally here, one can't help but to start anticipating the hot days of summer. Why not heat up your summer appetite even further with a steamy summer romance novel.

Heat Wave: it's gonna be a hot one... (M)
by Stephanie Bond, Leslie Kelly, and Heidi Betts.

"A little con - Investigator Lucy Bell is looking for a runaway groom. Fortunately, the almost-best-man (who's tastier than a double chocolate cheesecake) likely knows where he is. All Lucy needs is a little deception--and a whole lot of hot 'n' sweaty persuasion!

A little magic - Single mom Allie Cavanaugh has played nice with others for too long. Then Allie finds herself kissing a powerfully magnetic hypnotist at a carnival--in front of an audience! Sure, maybe she's mesmerized, or maybe the 'real' Allie is finally waking up.

And a little late-night mischief! Abby Weaver abandons the cool haven of her pharmaceutical basement for a girls-only week of sun, sand and fruity drinks. That was the plan--until Abby finds herself going solo. But the beach is a funny place--you never know just what (or who!) will wash up onshore.

Last Summer (M)
by Michael Thomas Ford

“In Provincetown, that summertime gay Mecca, thirtysomething Josh, shocked and hurt by news of his longtime partner's infidelity at the gym, is taking refuge, and blond, blue-eyed, cornfed, innocent young Toby is seeking a new life far from his midwestern roots. Also, Hollywood hunk Ty's secret summer love nest is verging on explosive publicity, and straight, year-round P-Town contractor Reilly can't quite quench those hot memories of yesteryear, despite his upcoming wedding. These and others, notably southerner Emmaline, who helps Toby in the midst of her own family crisis, make a made-for-the-beach page-turner, complete with characters twining in and out of one another's arms and destinies, as well as those quasi essays, that may leave readers wishing for a wintertime sequel. “ -Booklist

A Summer Reunion: it's a family celebration you'll never forget... (M)
by Kasey Michaels, Sarah Mayberry, and Teresa Southwick

"One beach house. Two sisters reunited. Three stories of family, old flames and summer love! For today...Now that she's reunited with her sister, Tori Fuller doesn't regret a moment of her life. But she's never forgotten the guy who got away.

Moonlight in the Morning : a novel (M)
by Jude Deveraux.

"In an all-new trilogy set in blissful Edilean, Virginia, Jude Deveraux weaves together the tales of three young women, best friends since college, and the lives, loves, and dreams that await them.

Sparks are flying between Jecca Layton and Dr. Tristan Aldredge. At the urging of her dear friend Kim, Jecca put the ruthless New York City art world on hold to spend the summer pursuing her passion for painting while enjoying Edilean's tightly knit artistic community. For years, Kim's cousin Tris--the town's handsome and dedicated doctor--felt a deep connection to Kim's college "sister" Jecca, though they had met only once before; now, Jecca is swept off her feet by this strong, sensitive man in a summer of sensual delights. But when long shadows announce Jecca's return to "real life" and the big city, the lovers must decide: Can they survive the distance? And who will sacrifice the life they've created for themselves to be together?" - publisher
