A Little About the Destiny Bay Romances: Sweet Editions
From Author Helen Conrad

"The Destiny Bay Romances take place in the sort of beach town I've always loved--and now I live in one! But writing about beach towns came first and this series is centered on the rich, influential Carrington family living along the California Coast, and in Hawaii. These are good-looking, fast-driving, hard-hitting men and women whose impulses lead them into trouble every time--and inevitably to fall in love.

The original series includes language and love scenes that aren't, for the most part, especially harsh and explicit--but some of my readers from my years writing sweets for Harlequin as Raye Morgan have asked if we couldn't have sweet and clean versions--and I thought--what a good idea! 

These are basically the same stories...but with the conflicts softened a bit, the language cleaned up, and no explicit love scenes. There are still a few adult situations, but they're muted. Consider these the PG versions. 

I hope you enjoy them!"
Moving Too Fast is only $0.99 for Kindle from now until Sunday, June 1st!

EXCERPT:

She looked up, and suddenly Grant was coming up to their table. She had no idea why. But it didn’t matter. His timing was the best. He was going to be her “something.”

She gave him a huge smile of welcome and said, quite clearly, “Ah, but the two of you are wrong. I do have a client.” She gestured grandly as he stopped before them. “You both know Grant Carrington, don’t you? He’s asked me to develop a plan of therapy for him, and I’ll be starting to work with him on Monday.”

Both faces stared at her, then looked up at Grant —Jerry’s filled with consternation, Mrs. Maxwell’s with bewilderment.

Grant’s cool gaze took in exactly what was going on. He looked at Carrie and immediately saw the anger in her eyes. They’d been baiting her and she was furious. A deep feeling of pure satisfaction filled him. Their loss just might be his gain after all.

Carrie was holding her breath. Did he get it? Would he play along? Did she really deserve it if he did, after the way she’d held him off all this time?

“Is that what you’re telling these people?” he asked her quietly, his eyes enigmatic. “That’s not quite the way I remember it.”

Silently, Carrie groaned, her fingers clutching her butter knife. He caught the gesture and smiled in a way that told her he was very much aware of how much she would like to plant it in his broad chest. Her voice was high but determined.

“I thought . . . Mr. Carrington, I thought we’d agreed---”

“To start today,” he intercepted swiftly. “That was how I understood it.” His gaze lingered on herface, enjoying her surge of relief. “But Monday will do just as well.” He looked at the others. “She promised to turn me into a new man. I’m looking forward to it.”

Este dragut subiectul, si cartea promite multe. Coperta insa ma duce cu gandul la altceva... parca nu se potriveste cu descrierea, cu subiectul, dar tot imi place. E interesanta.
