Seaside Hearts Giveaway



The newest addition to the LOVE IN BLOOM series, featuring a group of fun, sexy, and emotional friends who gather each summer at their Cape Cod cottages. They’re funny, flawed, and will have you begging to enter their circle of friends. You met them in READ, WRITE, LOVE, (The Remingtons, Book 5), follow these friends on their search for forever love in the Seaside Summers series.

Jenna Ward is vivacious, spontaneous, and confident—except when she’s around the man who stole her heart years earlier, strikingly handsome, quiet, and reliable Pete Lacroux. After years of trying to get his attention and overwhelmed from dealing with her mother’s new cougar lifestyle, Jenna’s giving up on Peter—and is ready to explore other men.

As the eldest of five siblings, with an alcoholic father to care for, boat craftsman Pete Lacroux always does the right thing and has no time for a real relationship. He’s looking forward to seeing his friend Jenna, a welcome distraction who’s so damn sexy and so painfully shy that she equally entertains and confuses him.

When Jenna picks up a hard-bodied construction worker, jealousy ignites Pete’s true feelings, and he’s powerless to ignore the desires for Jenna he never realized he had. But Pete’s not the quiet guy he appears to be, and his life is anything but conducive to a relationship. Can Jenna handle the real Pete Lacroux—the sexiest, most passionate alpha male she’s ever seen—or will she crack under pressure? And can Pete reclaim the life he once had without tearing apart his family?

SEASIDE SUMMERS are the newest addition to the LOVE IN BLOOM series

Jenna has had a crush on Pete Lacroux for as long as she’s known him. Living alongside her three best friends at the Seaside Cottages for the past five summers has been heaven, but now that two of them are engaged, she is ready to experience a soul mate relationship like theirs. Since Pete cannot see her as more than a friend, Jenna decides that this is the summer to forget him and move on. What she doesn’t know is that Pete has wanted her for as long as she has wanted him. All it takes is a handsome, hunky construction guy to catch Jenna’s eye for Pete’s jealous side to start showing. Is it too late for him to show Jenna how much he really does care?

You just have to love all the antics of the seaside girls. I want to be a part of that friendship so  badly. I loved all the back and forth innuendos but my nerves were raw by the time the first kiss finally happened. I think my knees buckled too.  And Vera’s pearls of wisdom were so on-spot, especially the one about every decade being wonderful. I can surely attest to that. Also, with the introduction to Pete’s family, I suspect Ms. Foster is setting us up for a future series about the hot Lacroux men. I say bring it on!
