Happy Book Birthday to Author Joan Reeves and her second book in the multi-author Last Chance Beach Romance series, Foolishly Yours.Last Chance Beach Police Officer Samantha Ruiz doesn’t date unsuitable men, and the blue-eyed, blond-haired surfer who takes her breath away is the poster boy for unsuitable. She’s always been careful not to become romantically entangled with unsuitable men who won’t measure up to the standards set by her over-achieving parents. So why is she so attracted to beach bum Grayson Crawford?
His reflection appeared in the mirror. Her heart pounded. He moved close. His rippling muscles and bronzed skin drew her like a stupid moth to a hot flame. He pressed against her back. She sighed with pleasure at his touch and remained still rather than rejecting him. He wrapped his arms around her and leaned down. His breath against her ear was warm. “Change your mind?”
His body was tightly pressed to hers, and she could tell he hadn’t changed his mind. He was everything she disdained. An unemployed slacker…a dreamer who was keeping secrets from her. Now his hands stroked her arms, raising goose bumps. With a gentle hand, he turned her in his arms. His caressing hands settled on her shoulders.
She’d told him she was not interested, but his touch makes a liar of her. He tilted her chin upward, and his mouth descended.
Oh, dear. She realized she’d passed the point of no return days ago.
Since Joan discovered the joy of storytelling—she was five at the time and her brothers were her captive audience—she’s been deluged by story ideas from her over-active imagination. Her only regret is that she’ll never live long enough to write and publish all of the stories.
Fortunately, she’s married to her very own happily-ever-after hero who has learned over the years to fend for himself if he’s hungry, needs clean clothes, needs to know where something is, and she’s on deadline. The heroes she writes represent his compassionate, patient, and loving qualities. (Note from Joan: He told me to add sexy to that description, but I told him no, even though he’s right about the sexy part.)
Joan and her husband divide their time between a book-cluttered home in Houston and a quiet book-cluttered house at the foot of the Texas Hill Country where they sit on the porch at night, look up at the star-studded sky, and listen to the coyotes howl.
