Breezy, beautiful summertime… It’s what we all dream of. Fun all day in the sun- playing volleyball on the beach and surfing the waves. Dancing all night (of course we are all so very scantily clad) by the light of a bright summer moon. Skinny dipping in the pool when the kids (or parents) have gone to bed. Cookouts and picnics and the salty taste of buttery corn-on-the cob melting on your tongue, not to mention licking scoops upon scoops of Ben and Jerry’s Karamel Sutra on your front porch swing.
Yes, that is the summer of our dreams… Is the reality not a little bit different?
Strapping sticky and sandy children into car seats in the backseat of a an after-a-long-beach-day-hot car, exposing your right breast to a rapt audience of beach-goers when the wave you are riding assaults you mercilessly, as it carries you to shore. The pool is always just a bit too cold to completely submerge yourself, ants love picnics more than we do, and corn-on-the-cob always gets caught between your teeth. And even Ben and Jerry’s ice cream drips all over your thighs on that creaky, spider-infested porch swing at night. Oh, and there are so many mosquitos.
But a good romance novel, one that is doing its job, can take you away from the reality and whisk you off to a place that is even better than your dreams.
Consider Mia Kerick’s summer-lovin’ stories, for example:
And Mia has stories without the heat of the summer sun but equipped with a heat all their own:
The Red Sheet carries you off to high school, where Bryan wakes up one morning a completely changed person—a person who shares more characteristics with Superman than he, or anyone he ever knew, would have thought possible. And of course young love blooms…
And Mia has more: Intervention, Unfinished Business…and upcoming releases of Random Acts and One Voice.
Summer is the time for dreams. Check out a Mia Kerick love story and you will be taken to Mia’s vacation home- an escape you will share with the sweet, the damaged, the selfless, the jaded, and the rest of the ever growing and changing young men she has created for you, as they fall in love and learn to live.
