    Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance


    Meghan Hawthorne is restless. The last year has been a roller coaster: her widowed mother just married a long-time family friend. Her younger brother unexpectedly became a father and a husband. Everyone’s life is changing. . .except for hers. As she begins her final summer of college, Meghan’s looking for excitement and maybe a little romance. Nothing serious; this girl just wants to have fun.

    But the only man for Meghan turns out to be the last one she expects.

    Sam Reynolds doesn’t need excitement, and he doesn’t want romance. Fun is out of the question. He’s been the steady, responsible one since his parents were killed, and serious is his way of life.

    When Sam rescues Meghan alongside a dark Georgia backroad, she falls hard for his deep brown eyes and slow drawl. But making him see her as more than just a party girl won’t be easy. Sam’s tempted by the fiery young artist, even as he realizes that giving into his feelings will mean radical change. . .maybe more than he can handle.

    Nobody ever said love was simple.



    Tawdra Kandle writes romance, in just about all its forms. She loves unlikely pairings, strong women, sexy guys, hot love scenes and just enough conflict to make it interesting. Her books run from YA paranormal romance (THE KING SERIES), through NA paranormal and contemporary romance (THE SERENDIPITY DUET, PERFECT DISH DUO, THE ONE TRILOGY) to adult contemporary and paramystery romance (CRYSTAL COVE BOOKS and RECIPE FOR DEATH SERIES). She lives in central Florida with a husband, kids, sweet pup and too many cats. And yeah, she rocks purple hair.




    Real or Fiction: The Line is Blurry

    Being a writer is not for the faint-of-heart, that’s for sure, but being related to or married to a writer is apparently no walk in the park, either. At least, that’s what I hear around my house.

    I stand accused of zoning out in the middle of conversations or car rides and of speaking so enthusiastically about my characters that people seem to think they’re real people. 

    But they are real. . .to me. I completely understand the writer-fantasy of wishing one’s fictional folk would come to life, because I would not at all be surprised if I ran into Meghan at an art supply shop, or Sam at the local hardware store. In my head, their lives are very much three-dimensional. I could tell you at any given time what a character is doing. 

    It’s why, to me, none of my books seem quite complete. Yes, the story is told. 

    Yes, to the reader, it’s all wrapped up. But I know more about it. I can’t fit everything in, because I’d never finish a single book. But I do lie awake at night, thinking, “Oh! I never told them about what happened when Meghan talked to Laura and told her about the night with Sam. I never told them about the time Meghan made dinner for Sam.” 

    So yes, I may get a little carried away when someone asks me about the characters in a book. But I don’t think it’s fair to say I talk about them with more affection than I do my husband and kids. That’s not true. 

    But let me tell you about what Meghan said the other day. . .
