#TeaserTuesday Under the Boardwalk

Happy Tuesday! You know what that means: a teaser!

Today I’m sharing a teaser from UNDER THE BOARDWALK. I loved exploring how two people who truly love each other go about repairing a marriage that’s gone wrong. I truly believe that with love, you can fix something that’s broken. It just takes time and patience and in this case, a little bit of passion. Okay, maybe a lot of passion, not that passion alone is enough necessarily.

In UNDER THE BOARDWALK, Chase and Natalie have lost the passion as their lives have pulled them apart. The love is still there, but caught up in a lot of other things that are keeping them from being real with each other. In this story, they get real again and try to rekindle their love and marriage, but also find themselves again.

Teaser

Natalie Ramirez has spent less and less time with her husband over the last year and more and more time alone. She longs for the happy days of summer when she and Chase would pass the time together on the beach and under the boardwalk, exploring the passion that simmered between them as hot as any summer sun.

Chase Smith had to work hard for everything he ever had, including his wife Natalie. His wife had never wanted for anything in her life and Chase didn’t want to disappoint her. But somewhere along the way, Chase lost sight of the most important thing she wanted: his love.

A passionate night under the boardwalk brought them together, but can Chase and Natalie rekindle that lost love and save their marriage?

#ManCandyMonday Chase & Natalie from UNDER THE BOARDWALK

I’m counting down the minutes to the release of UNDER THE BOARDWALK in the SUMMER HEAT box set! I hope you’ll like Chase and Natalie’s story since it was such a fun one to write.

Today’s Man Candy choice is Chase Smith, the hero of the story. I wanted a really upper crusty sounding name for him and Chase just fit the bill. The reality is that Chase is anything but rich. Chase grew up poor and had to work hard for everything he ever got. It’s important to Chase to be able to provide for Natalie, who did grow up with much much more.

Unfortunately that drive to succeed is a large part of what drove him away from his wife. I loved exploring how Chase tries to find himself again so that he can be the man with whom Natalie fell in love.

This is how I pictured Chase and Natalie during happier times, sharing some time on the Jersey Shore and just having fun!

#WriteWed Inspiration for Natalie from Under the Boardwalk

When it comes to fashion, I am hopeless. I’m told that as a kid, I was always worried about my dresses and shoes. But for a long time, I’ve been a jeans and t-shirt kind of girl. That’s not to say that I don’t like dressing up every now and then and that since I’ve lost some weight, I’m a little more fashion conscious. But, big but, that fashion gene passed me by for the most part.

That’s why I rely on my daughter, who inherited my mom’s fashion sense. My daughter knows how to put clothes together and I often turn to her for advice. I also often buy things at her surf and skate shop because she brings in clothing that’s pleasing and different. She’s also really big into sourcing her items from local companies, small surf and skate brands, and companies that support sustainability and other causes.

As a small business owner, she’s also a risk taker, and I admire her for that.

In Under the Boardwalk, the heroine, Natalie, is a fashion designer and a risk taker. She’s the one who is creative and willing to try different things, unlike her husband Chase, who has become way more set in his ways and distant as he tries to do what he thinks is right for himself and his wife.

Chase’s drive to become successful has driven Natalie away from him and it’s up to the two of them to try and understand their very different personalities and see if they can find a way back to the love they had shared in the first wonderful years of their marriage.

I hope you enjoyed finding out a little bit more about Under the Boardwalk and about the inspiration for the heroine.

#TeaserTuesday Under the Boardwalk from the SUMMER HEAT Box Set

It’s time for a teaser and today it’s a short excerpt from my new story, Under the Boardwalk, in the the SUMMER HEAT Box Set!

This is a sexy, but emotional story, about a married couple trying to rekindle the summer love they had discovered along the Jersey Shore boardwalks. Why a married couple? Well, marriages sometimes take hard work to maintain, but I do believe that if you truly love someone, that hard work will pay off with a happily-ever-after.

In the case of Natalie and Chase, passion is not the issue, and as I said, this definitely is a sensual story. But more importantly, I hope you’ll be rooting for Natalie and Chase to work through their issues and rediscover their love for each other.

Teaser

Natalie Ramirez has spent less and less time with her husband over the last year and more and more time alone. She longs for the happy days of summer when she and Chase would pass the time together on the beach and under the boardwalk, exploring the passion that simmered between them as hot as any summer sun.

Chase Smith had to work hard for everything he ever had, including his wife Natalie. His wife had never wanted for anything in her life and Chase didn’t want to disappoint her. But somewhere along the way, Chase lost sight of the most important thing she wanted: his love.

A passionate night under the boardwalk brought them together, but can Chase and Natalie rekindle that lost love and save their marriage?
