The title of my new story is UNDER THE BOARDWALK and it’s a sexy contemporary romance inspired by the Jersey Shore Boardwalk, in particular, the boardwalks in Ocean Grove and Asbury Park.
My hero and heroine are actually married, but separated. Their wish for their night together is to rekindle the passion and relationship that had begun on one very special night on the boardwalk. It was a tough story at first because I had to find a balance between them being angry with each other with the state of their marriage, but also being hopeful that they could restore what they once had. Now that I got that balance right, the story and sexiness is just flying along.
Under the Boardwalk will be part of the SUMMER HEAT box set which will be available for pre-order on March 9. I’ll have links and other info for you soon.
In the meantime, some photos of the locations and boardwalks that inspired my story!
Still celebrating the release of STRONGER THAN SIN which means you can visit with me over at my friend Lois Winston’s wonderful blog where I’ll be talking about how to select locations for your novels and why I chose the Jersey Shore. Anyone who leaves a comment will have a chance to win an autographed copy of SINS OF THE FLESH. If you win and already have that one, just let me know and I can substitute another release for you!
Another fun thing for you! With the World Series underway (and me struggling to watch it on MLB.TV which is so much harder to follow than a Fox feed!), we’re going to have some baseball fun here next Friday. My friend and fellow author Ronnie Norpel will be here to talk about her latest release, BASEBALL KARMA AND THE CONSTITUTION BLUES from Three Rooms Press.
Finally, one of my all time favorite movies is THE SOUND OF MUSIC for so many reasons. My family and I went to see it when I was a kid. We did a special trip to New York City in our Easter finery, hats and all for the Easter parade. Then we went to Radio City Music Hall. I cried at the end (and still do) because I could connect with those children who were forced to leave their homes because of a crazy man.
But on a brighter note, the cast reunited recently and here’s a clip for you to enjoy on this Fun Friday!
