Summer Lovin’- Wounded Hearts Book 5

Will two mismatched lovers find a way past their mistakes? 

Mitch Taylor and Rebecca Sorenson share a secret. 

Rebecca’s job as secretary of Cascade Elementary, the same school she attended as a child, is rewarding. She has a great group of friends, many of whom are married now. And if sometimes she wished it were her up there in that sparkling white dress… 

Except, wait—she did get to wear bridal white. Granted, it was a slinky party dress and the justice of the peace was Elvis in a gold lame jacket, but still, the deed was done. 

She’d tied the knot. 

Mitch Taylor doesn’t do regrets. It would be a waste of energy bemoaning the mistakes he’d made in his life. The end of his promising football career taught him nothing in life was a guarantee. 

Like love. 

What were the chances two people from the same po-dunk town in Washington would end up together in a nightclub in Las Vegas? A few too many drinks later, a hasty ceremony performed by the king of rock ‘n’ roll, and they’d been hitched. The night that followed lived on in his dreams, but when he’d woken the next morning she was gone.

Becky inhaled on a startled gasp as two men came out from the shadows of the building and scared the crap out of her.

The tall, skinny one smirked. “Hello, pretty lady. Did you make a wrong turn?”

She backed up against the door, her head shouting to get the hell out of there.

“I don’t want any… any trouble,” Rebecca gasped. She pushed frantically, but the door wouldn’t budge.

“Hey, ain’t you that teacher we saw this afternoon?” The other man moved closer to stare at her through blurry eyes and Becky’s heart crammed into her throat. It was Tommy’s guardian, or whatever he was. This wasn’t good, not good at all.

“Look, you guys can go back to whatever you were doing.” She really didn’t want to know what. “I have a friend joining me right away. He wouldn’t like it if you bothered me.”

“Ooh, tough talk, teach. Except I don’t see anybody out here except us chickens,” Tommy’s whatever cackled. Then the smile slowly faded and something much darker took its place. “I think maybe I should be the one to school you a lesson. One on how to mind your own good goddamn business.” He grasped her arm and yanked her away from the door so hard she fell against his sour-smelling body. “What do you think of that, teach?”

What readers are saying

This is a sweet and endearing novel. A new take on star crossed lovers. Although this is the fifth in a series of stand alones, this was the first one I read and was able to keep everyone straight.

You know how it can be with these small towns – either you are related to half the town or you went to school with them and know most of every ones secrets.

Laura Reading

The author has a great cast of characters that the reader can’t help but fall in love with and continue to feel that they know them as friends and neighbors. The town of Tidal Falls is one that the reader is ready to move to in an instant.
