REX ON THE BEACH is a fun, hot read that starts this anthology off with the perfect story to get the reader in the mood for summer vacation.  




After a tragic accident at work, Damon Cole quit his job, left his old life behind and went back to the one place that always made him feel safe and happy. Damon has fond memories of visiting his Gypsy family, especially his fortune telling grandmother. When Damon’s grandmother suggested he travel the carnival circuit as the “world’s greatest mesmerist” Damon, The Gypsy King, he decided it just might be the perfect solution.


Allie Cavanaugh only has room in her life for one man, and that is her nine-month old son, Hank. From the moment Allie snuck into The Gypsy King’s tent, she is mesmerized by Damon’s exotic looks, but it is Damon who falls under a spell when he hypnotizes Allie.


Just when Damon and Allie think there relationship might actually have a chance to grow, Damon drops a bombshell on Allie that just might push her away for good.


GETTING INTO TROUBLE is a fun, entertaining read that will have the reader on an emotional rollercoaster the whole way through.





Abigail Weaver and her friend Rachel have the perfect vacation all planned out until Rachel’s job gets in the way. Abby decided to leave without Rachel, thinking she will get caught up on some reading until Rachel can get there. That is, until a gorgeous guy jogging on the beach comes to her rescue.


USMC Gunnery Sergeant Michael Mastriani was on leave in Florida visiting his parents for the week. Taking a run on the beach, he met Abby, a beautiful redhead who made Mike think about things like a future and family. Before Mike can start planning a future with Abby, there is a little matter from his past that he needs to take care of first.


SHAKEN AND STIRRED is a sexy, hot read that brings this anthology to a perfect ending.  




HEAT WAVE is a fresh, fun anthology that, like summertime, I was sorry to see end. Each story is unique, with characters that are all likable, but the one thing that they have in common is they are HOT. For a great summertime read I would definitely recommend HEAT WAVE to all romance fans.
