Romance Byte: One Reckless Summer

Author: Toni Blake
ISBN: 9780061429897
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: Today

The perfect daughter. The perfect prom queen. The perfect wife. Jenny Tolliver’s been the good girl all her life, and it’s gotten her nowhere. Now that her marriage has been busted up by her cheating ex, she’s decided it’s time to regroup and rediscover herself. This summer she’s headed back to her hometown of Destiny, Ohio, to the very lakeshore cottage where she grew up, to figure out what life holds in store for her next.

She never dreamed the answer would be Mick Brody, Destiny’s #1 hellraiser. He comes from the wrong side of the tracks (or in his case, the lake), and he’s landed in hot water more times than he can count. He’s exactly the kind of guy Jenny’s always kept her distance from … but soon the good girl and the bad boy are caught in a raw heat that’s out of control. Too bad Mick’s got a secret that threatens to tear them apart and ruin Jenny’s perfectly, passionately reckless summer …

About the author from her Website:
In 1998, Toni sold her first three novels, all romantic comedies, to Kensington’s Precious Gems line. She was featured as an "up and coming author" in the 1999 Novel & Short Story Writer's Market, and soon after served by special invitation as a writing instructor for Northern Kentucky University.

In early 2000, Toni made her first sale to Harlequin Temptation, and went on to expand into Harlequin's Duets line. Toni’s Harlequin novels have been distributed widely all over the world, in twenty-four languages. Since then, Toni has gone on to write for Warner Books, NAL/Signet Eclipse, and Avon Books.

Striving to give her readers heroines they can relate to and heroes they can fall in love with, Toni hopes her writing encourages women to embrace their sensuality. She essentially thinks of her books as being "super sexy with touches of sweetness and humor". There's nothing more gratifying for Toni than to find out someone enjoyed one of her books. For her, that's what writing is all about, making a connection with others
