I can’t believe two weeks from today HER ACCIDENTAL BOYFRIEND will be available! I’m so excited for everyone to read Shane’s story. I definitely have a soft spot for my small town flirt and playboy. So today I thought I’d share a short excerpt from KISSING THE MAID OF HONOR to remind you of his charm. :) And in case you haven’t read it, introduce you to him. This is from the scene where we first meet Shane…

“Saturday, dude. You. Me. And the waves at Seascape Beach,” Shane Sullivan said. “We haven’t surfed together in forever.”

“Appreciate the offer, but I can’t.” The tide at Seascape was fierce, and Luke hoped Shane didn’t see him shiver. He fisted his hands at his sides and wished like hell the thought of water didn’t scare the shit out of him.

“Wedding crap?” Shane raised his eyebrows and his forehead creased in sympathy.

Thankful for the excuse, Luke nodded. “And I’m enlisting your sorry ass to help me with the bachelor party on Saturday night.”

Shane’s expression brightened. “Booze and babes, my friend. That’s all we need.”

Luke could get on board with that. He leaned back against the leather booth and flexed his fingers. Those two B words sounded like the perfect prescription to help chase away the pity party he had going on with himself.

But then an RN in light blue scrubs with eyes that sparkled like shiny new pennies and a mouth that begged to be kissed flashed in his mind.

What the hell had he been thinking, telling Sela about his accident? He hadn’t been able to ignore her—hadn’t been able to stop the words from tumbling out of his mouth easier than he’d thought they would. Warmth and compassion radiated off her in waves and they’d hijacked his resolve.

“Can I get you boys anything else?” the waitress said, bumping her hip against the table. Her gaze fell on Shane.

“That depends. Are you on the menu?” Shane asked.

Luke rolled his eyes. Shane worked fifty-hour weeks as a project engineer, but when it came to women, he’d never had to try very hard. Probably because of his one-liners.

The waitress, a pretty blonde wearing a white shirt, short pleated skirt, and black-rimmed eyeglasses, laughed. “If I was, what would you do with me?”

Shane leaned forward and pulled the pen from behind her ear. Then he took her hand, turned it palm up, and wrote something. “If you really want to find out, call me and I’ll go over the details with you.”


I also want to share this wonderful fan book trailer that my awesome reader pal Elena made for me! It totally makes me smile every time I watch it. What do you guys think? Pretty cool, huh?
