Summer After Summer
(Harlequin Everlasting 2007) will be re-released in September 2013. This book won the national Book Buyer's Best long contemporary award. I'm pleased as punch to announce this story will be on the market again soon!
It takes a heavenly wink and a couple of wannabe angels desperate to win their wings for Mary Louise "Pickles" Carson and Cam Hollinwell to realize they're soul mates.
A Las Vegas teacher with a proclivity for all things vintage, Pickles' dream is to have a baby. Considering her sex life is a big fat zero, that seems impossible. Cam is a washed up journalist whose only goal in life is to return to mainstream reporting. What will it take for these two very different people to fall in love? How about a miracle?
Pickles is playing video poker when the angels bowl her over with the news she's pregnant courtesy of an obscure scientific miracle called parthenogenesis-conception without the benefit of a male found in plants and lower level species. Cam's journalistic career tanked because of a false date rape charge, and now reporting on Elvis sightings for a national tabloid.
His task in this hair-brained scheme is to publicize the angel's miracle. In return they'll help him resurrect his career.
Our hero and heroine soon find themselves in a world of murder, mayhem and all things Elvis. Add in a budding romance, the devil's hunky minion, and an inept villain-then set the story in a Vegas that tourists rarely see with a cast of eccentric characters, and you have all the elements of a rollicking good time.
