Seasons and Seashells:
A Sweet Romance Anthology
with Love Stories for Every Season
What is a seashell?
A mollusk, a crustacean, a husk? Nothing more than a bony exoskeleton serving as a home for a creature under the sea? But for a storyteller, a seashell can be so much more. It can be a memory of the past, a token of love, or a clue to a murder.
Wishing for a winter getaway to a warm, sunny beach but can’t afford it? How about a FREE sweet romance anthology instead.
My contribution, Babbet’s New Beginning, is a quick introduction to a cast of characters living in the small town of Brisbing, Georgia. This is the first of five stories in my new series, MY HOME TOWN.

In Her Wildest Dreams
How does a divorced, single mother rationalize a short fling with one of Atlanta’s Hottest Bachelors? By telling herself no one would ever know, and since he’s moving, she would never see him again. What could go wrong?
After finding out her husband of twenty years was sleeping with his secretary, real-estate agent Liza Adams is leery of a long term relationship. Which makes a short fling with Kevin Calhoun the perfect opportunity to break out of her ordinary life. Before she realizes what’s happened, one night turns into the weekend.
Not a problem. She can handle this. Make some memories. Feel alive again. Then move on.
But she soon realizes Kevin is after a whole lot more than just her body. When she agrees to help him sell some property before he leaves town, Liza doesn’t realize she’s in for the ride of her life.
Can the sexy bachelor convince her they can make a go of things despite their completely different lifestyles? With less than two weeks and three houses full of beds, Kevin will do anything in his power to convince her he’s in it for the long haul, and he’ll do anything to make her wildest dreams come true.

What is a group novel? This is where one author starts a chapter, passes it onto the next author, and so on until the story is complete. Take a look at the group novels I participated in with the Petit Fours and Hot Tamales Blog. This was a fun writing experience and we ended up with some awesome stories! Check them out when you get a chance.
