Hey, gang! This was supposed to be a fabulous, bells & whistles release week post for my new VK Sykes book, SEE YOU AT SUNSET. You may have noticed that the cover at the top of the post is looking a bit truncated. Well, for some reason, all my images are getting cut in half, which is only one of the things that went wrong today.
Naturally, I suspect Jaunty, but he’s not answering any of my emails.
BREAKING NEWS: As you can see, my images are no longer wonky. Kristan apparently had a “little chat” with Jaunty, who finally got on the stick. Thank God!
Anyhoo, I was very well organized for my release, with time left over to work on a book that’s due next week. Then things started going a bit sideways, and all my well-laid plans fell apart.
Oh, well, that’s life! And I DO have a new book out, which is always exciting. SEE YOU AT SUNSET is book 3 in the Seashell Bay Series of small town romances that I write with my hubby as VK Sykes. And I have to say, I love this book, which features a seriously hot deputy sheriff as the hero–a classic man’s man who is also a truly good guy. Absolutely my favorite type of hero! And if anyone deserves a happy ending, it’s Micah Lancaster.
Here’s the blurb:
DEEPER THAN ANY OCEAN…
All Holly Tyler wants is a fantastic career, a not-too-committed relationship, and a city where there are no painful memories. Instead, she’s called back to her hometown of Seashell Bay to help with her family’s struggling general store. It’s a town where everyone knows everyone, and where one man could sink Holly’s careful plans.
Deputy Sheriff Micah Lancaster has wanted Holly for as long as he can remember. He knows she has a life on the mainland-and a boyfriend-and that there’s no real future with her. But now Holly is back and the attraction still flickers between them, a promise of something more. Their desire is stronger than any undertow . . . and once it pulls them under, it won’t let go.
SEE YOU AT SUNSET is a friends-to-lovers story, which is always lots of fun. A guy and a gal who’ve known each other for years, but who are now looking at each other in a new light. Throw in a pretty little island in Maine, two people who really, really like each other but have a gazillion excuses for why they can’t be together, and some sexy times on a dock under a star-spangled sky, and you’ve got a recipe for romance.
And the book does have a beautiful cover, which you can now see thanks to Kristan. But you can also see it on my VK Sykes website in all it’s glory. While you’re doing that, you can read an excerpt and also find info on buy links and retailers. Just click here to see the cover and visit my website.
To celebrate the release of SEE YOU AT SUNSET, I’ll give away a copy of the previous book in the series, SUMMER AT THE SHORE. Just leave a comment about what you do when your day goes off the rails. Do you take a deep breath and start over, go for a walk, or pour yourself a big glass of wine? How do you hack a day gone awry? One person who comments will win the book (with the full cover–I promise!).
