Shelly Laurenston
My Kind of Town

Deputy Kyle Treharne hates Yankees—especially exotically beautiful ones like Emma Lucchesi who show up in his seaside North Carolina town. But if the sexy New Yorker's got a few tricks up her sleeve, so does the lawman. Something’s gotta give...

Jennifer Apodaca
You Give Love a Good Name

About Jennifer Apodaca:

I went back to college after my three sons, Matt, Gary and Paul, were born. Beginning with a vague idea of earning a marketing degree, I ended up pursuing a writing career with the full support of my husband, Dan.

First I tried to tame my naturally edgy voice into writing romance, but dead bodies and quirky humor turned up with alarming regularity. So did rejection letters in my mailbox! Dan nagged me to write something contemporary and funny. My mother dropped a hint about trying something modern. My sister mentioned how good I'd be at writing a comedy, maybe even a mystery. Dan agreed with them.

Finally, frustration drove me to murder, fictionally speaking, of course.

Dating Can Be Murder is the first book in the Samantha Shaw Mystery Series. Sam's a woman determined to make a new life for herself and her two sons. She has a little plastic surgery to fill out her tight sweaters, drops a few pounds off her waist and inches off her skirts, buys a dating service and embarks on a hilarious and dangerous adventure.

And so, I have been forced to admit that my husband, mother and sister were right. Not entirely humbled, these days I am busy plotting future adventures for Samantha Shaw!

I officially bow down to these ladies...it was amazing (Thursday, August 8, 2013)
Reviewer: herding cats & burning soup

I officially bow down to each of these ladies because damn they put together a fine anthology. They each have very unique and different voices and really created some stand out short stories/novellas that all had a little something to do with Sun, Sand, Sex. They had me tearing up one minute and laughing out loud the next. Between the three they're heart felt, sexy and funny as hell. If you like beachy reads this is one to grab. It won't disappoint...
