Christmastime Romance on the Beach

Love romance?

Love the beach?

Love Christmas?

For me, it’s yes to all three. I got married at Christmastime a few (ahem…) years back, and we honeymooned in Key West. The beach, holiday music with a tropic undertone, and sizzling romance go together in my mind like milk and cookies.

Will Work for Love, a new release in the Barefoot line from Turquoise Morning Press, had its nativity in my very cold writing space in wintry Ohio. Watching the snow drift past the windows made me think of sunshine and sparkling water. Cold toes in my favorite LLBean slippers brought to mind hot sandy beaches. I’m like that–always strolling down the sunny side of the street. Even in winter.

My hero, Chris, has to work for love in the novel, but I hope you’ll find it easy to enjoy! Take your mind off gray skies, snowflakes up your nose, and slippery steps and head on down to St. Thomas to see what happens when sleigh bells ring in a Christmas Eve wedding on the beach.

Stay warm and happy!
