So, I thought it would be fun to create sort of a family/who-goes-with-who tree for my Cascade gang from my Secret Wishes series. I love this little coastal town and the people that live there.  :heart:

Okay, so first we have Paula and Reed Watters. They have four children: Luke, Vanessa, Erin and Teague.

Next up is Meg and Henry Sullivan. They have two children: Shane and Sela.

Vanessa was the first to walk down the aisle. She’s married to Hayden Foster and they have a baby on the way! (Shh… don’t tell anyone, but it’s a boy!)

Luke and Shane are best friends. Luke was Sela’s first kiss back in high school and well, things didn’t go so smoothly after that, but unable to keep their distance as Best Man and Maid of Honor at Vanessa and Hayden’s wedding, things changed. :-D They’ve since eloped and are happily married. You can read their story in KISSING THE MAID OF HONOR.

Shane, Cascade’s biggest flirt, pretended to be Kagan Owens boyfriend to help her out of a bind and one thing led to another and what was fake turned real and a flash mob got involved and now they’re engaged! You can read their story in HER ACCIDENTAL BOYFRIEND.

Erin had no desire to fall in love again after having her heart annihilated by her college boyfriend, but after a matchmaking challenge, she had no choice but to get mixed up with her matchmaker/wingman,  rescue paramedic Troy Streiber. They are…. well I don’t want to spoil it since their book comes out April 14th! It’s titled WILD ABOUT HER WINGMAN and here’s the cover! I am super in love with it!!!!!!

There’s a rush to the altar! Engaged couples love dates with patterns (and heck, there’s no way to forget your anniversary now) so even though it’s a Tuesday, there shall be an abundance of brides and grooms saying “I DO!” Woot!

If you’re like me and haven’t been invited to any weddings today, you’re in luck! I’ve got the perfect alternative. I mean the next best thing to being at a wedding is reading about one, right? (Hey, maybe it’s even better because you can attend in your jammies from your couch if you want.) And well, I just so happen to have a book all about a wedding and it comes with a very hot best man named Luke.

I love my cover so much I maybe still stare at it. A. LOT. So to celebrate this special day, and my novel, KISSING THE MAID OF HONOR, I’ve got a giveaway! One person is going to win a $15 gift card to the online store of their choice. And one person is going to win a Secret Wishes Gift Bag filled with goodies galore!

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.”

:D

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?

hugs!
Robin

Happy July!

I can’t believe I just typed that. Well, in honor of the new month and the fact that wedding season is in full bloom, I thought I’d share an exclusive excerpt from KISSING THE MAID OF HONOR. I hope you enjoy it…

“My maid of honor is not getting on that.”

Luke rolled his eyes at Vanessa. She’d been hovering over Sela since they’d walked out of the living room and into the garage and now she planned to speak for her, too? “I think Sela can decide for herself what she wants to do.” He tossed aside the motorcycle cover and grinned down at his bike. He hadn’t been on two wheels in too long and he needed this. This first step to something more foolhardy and dangerous. The fact that he wanted to ride with Sela was a big mistake, but he couldn’t help himself. He wanted to see her reaction.

“Come on, Sela.” Vanessa put a hand on Sela’s arm. “I know you don’t want to do this.”

Sela shrugged. “It’s okay. Go back inside. I’ll talk to you tomorrow.” She hugged Vanessa and then studied his bike with far more interest than he’d anticipated.

“If you thought this would bother me,” she said as soon as Vanessa stepped out of earshot, “you thought wrong.” Hands on her hips, a gleam in her eye, her full lips were puckered as if she were contemplating blowing a kiss to his bike. The look knocked him off balance.

“You ever been on a motorcycle?” He pulled his gaze away and searched the garage for helmets.

“No.” She moved closer to the bike and reached out to slide her hand along the seat.

“But you’ve wanted to?” Damn if that didn’t surprise him, but the intensity in her interest couldn’t mean anything else.

She quirked a smile and continued to caress the bike, her fingers trailing over the handlebars. “Maybe. You haven’t ridden her in a long time.”

His groin tightened. No, he hadn’t ridden in a while. “Her?”

“It is a she, isn’t it? I heard all guys thought of their toys as female.” She rounded the front tire and glanced up at him from under those long, dark eyelashes of hers.

He gulped and ignored the sexy yet innocent way she moved. “Who told you that?”

“Shane.”

And just like that he was cured of any improper thoughts. His best friend’s little sister was forbidden. Always had been and always would be.

Just in case you want to read the whole story click HERE. :D

Oh, and I can’t wait for you all to read Shane’s story next!

Happy June everyone!

In my newest release from Entangled Publishing, KISSING THE MAID OF HONOR, my heroine’s first kiss plays a big part in the story. First kisses can be amazing or they can be awful. I’m not sure there’s an in-between, so it’s a good thing the next kiss is usually better, and the one after that even better and the… you get the idea. No matter what number kiss you’re on, though, I think where you kiss can have a big impact on the kiss’s potency. So today I thought I’d share my take on…

The Best Places To Kiss

The first place is at the car wash – the kind where you can stay in the car and go through the wash. You’ve got like thirty seconds to be dirty while your car is getting clean. Make the most of it with a steamy kiss that leaves you both wanting more. Plus, how fun is it to stay in your car at the car wash!

The library is next on my list. It’s quiet. There are plenty of secluded spots, but you might get caught. And there’s books filled with everything imaginable surrounding you. Escape to somewhere romantic in your mind as you suck on your partner’s earlobe, then trace the outline of his ear with the tip of your tongue and whisper something naughty before finally settling on his lips for a long, drawn out kiss.

Kissing anywhere near the ocean is definitely a best spot. Whether its somewhere tropical while you’re on vacation, or at your local beach, give me the surf and give me my hubby’s lips. (Sorry – was that TMI?) Soft sand under your feet, the sound of the waves rolling onto shore, the smell of the sea air, there’s something very romantic about beaches no matter what time of day or year. In KISSING THE MAID OF HONOR, my hero and heroine do a little something in the ocean that might include skinny dipping and kissing. Just sayin’.

Next, how about kissing while cuddling up in a hammock. There’s not a lot of room here, people, so you know what that means, right? Body parts touching. Hips pressed together. I’m thinking this spot could definitely lead to something beyond kissing. Not in the hammock, though. Well, unless it’s safe. Or not. ;) Maybe it’s dark.

And lastly, the best place to kiss is by a fire. It could be a campfire in the woods or a fire in your fireplace. The warmth, the glow, the unthinking calm I think a fire stirs, are the perfect ingredients for a romantic kiss that could go on and on and on.

Oh wait! I’ve got one more quick one—on a swing. Have your guy sit down while you straddle and face him with your arms wrapped around his neck. Swinging is optional.

So that’s my take. There are plenty of more places, though. And now I want to know about you. Where was your most romantic kiss? Leave me a comment and you’ll be entered to win book swag (T-shirt, sticky note pads, bookmarks, signed postcards) from all my releases, plus maybe a few chocolate kisses. :) I’ll announce the winner on Monday, June 11th. Thanks so much for chiming in and good luck!

Oh, and my blog tour is underway and so much fun! Click HERE for the list of my tour stops and a chance to win girlie swag and a $25 GC!
