Summer Romance Recap - 4 steamy summer love stories!

Hi everyone!
Summer may be winding down (can you believe how fast these last 3 months went?) but there’s still time to catch up on some great summer romances! To celebrate the unofficial end of the season, I’m sharing a look at my Amber Quill Press summer love stories.

Quite a few of my Amber Quill Press romances take place in the summer. Maybe that’s because the weather’s warm and people can go outside and have fun. Or maybe it’s because the nights are steamy and humid and people need to get out of their clothes….

Were starting things off (appropriately enough) with a look at A Midsummer Night’s Delights. This scorching-hot Amber Quill Press novella was a November 2008 best-seller and also appears in my Naughty Nobles anthology, along with A Most Unusual Princess and The Dark Lord.

Heres a summary:

AMidsummer Night’s Delights

At this Midsummer Ball, couples pair up everywherebut not for dancing!

Young newlyweds Julian and Annabelle are miserable. Their arranged marriage is lacking everythingespecially sex. Julian suffers from a lack of confidence and is harboring a secret urge. Annabelles longings go unnoticed and unfulfilled, no matter what she tries. But all that changes when they are invited to a Midsummer Ball. Their unconventional hosts, Vincent and Sabrina, introduce them to a world where their most intimate desires and hidden passions are exploredand fulfilled. Swapping and naughty games are just a few of the surprises awaiting them

And what would a summer romance be without the beach? My Amber Quill Press paranormal, Confessions of a Vampires Lover began with the premise: What if a vampire went to the beach and fell in love?

Heres a summary:

Confessions of a Vampires Lover

The moment Brian spotted Cassie sitting on the moonlit beach, he was hooked. Beautiful, smart, and sexy, Cassie is the girl of his dreams. She didnt mind that he spent the hot summer days riding the ocean waves, because once the sun set, he belonged to herall night long!

Everything is perfect between themuntil Brian discovers Cassies shocking secret. Can Brian give up the sun, sand, and surf to be with the woman he loves?

Sometimes throwing two seemingly incompatible characters together in close quarters during the hot summer months leads to sizzling romances! This happened in two of my full-length AQP novels, A Perfect Match and Trust with Hearts.

Heres a summary:

 A Perfect Match

Falling for the wrestler she had been assigned to interview wasn’t part of Danni’s plan, until Vinnie Valentine pinned her heart in a flash.

Disgruntled with her job as the office gopher for a national sports magazine, Danni Stone impersonates a reporter to prove herself to her boss. Her assignment? Spend thirty days on the road with Vinnie Valentine, a sexy professional wrestler.

Life isn’t going well for the Heavyweight Champ. Vinnie is struggling with a manipulative boss, prepping for the most important match of his career, and feuding with his arch-enemy, Thorn. The last thing he needs is a nosy reporter following him around—even if she is hot.

Thrown together in close quarters, Danni can’t help falling for Vinnie. Their mutual attraction grows, and Danni gives in to the lustful feelings she’s repressed for years. As their relationship deepens, she finds herself drawn into Vinnie’s world and becomes a key player in his title bout. But before Danni can tell Vinnie that she isn’t the reporter she claims to be, he discovers her deception. Her lie threatens to destroy everything between them. Is their fragile love destined to fail, or are they a perfect match?

Trust with Hearts was my 10th romance with Amber Quill Press, and it was a lot of fun to write. It's a sultry romance that takes place in West Virginia. The hero is a sexy, cowboy-like country singer who wears incredibly tight jeans. This novel is available in paperback and various electronic formats.

Heres a summary:

After a bitter breakup, Sherrie Parker seeks refuge at her cousin Dave’s house in rural West Virginia. Early one morning, she runs into Dave’s other houseguest, a singer named Curtis Taylor. The last thing Sherrie wants is to share living quarters with a country music crooner – even if he is sexy, in a cowboy sort of way. 

Thrown together by circumstances, Sherrie and Curtis get off to a rocky start, but soon discover they have more in common than they ever imagined. Unable to fight their growing attraction, they give in to their desires and start a sizzling summer romance. 

Everything is perfect between them until Sherrie discovers that Curtis is keeping secrets from her – and his biggest secret of all will change everything. Can their newfound love survive, or will destiny keep them apart forever? 

I hope you’ll give these romances a try! Even if summer is nearly over, these love stories will keep you warm all year! You can read excerpts, reviews, and more on my site: or on other blog pages.

Until next time,
