Standalone New Novel from ALA Award-winning International Bestselling Author and TV Host Kailin Gow…Summer’s Landing
Summer’s Landing is a new series about a more mature Summer Jones who is now 28 and working as a surgeon in Los Angeles. She was engaged to her long-time love, but now life is about to change with her fiance hovering between life and death. As a surgeon, she deals with life and death decisions everyday, but when tragedy hits too close to home, Summer faces the biggest decision in her life, one she will fall upon at a place called Summer’s Landing.
I Can. Not. Believe. It.
Another tragedy. Another death. Now the man I am set to marry…the man I want to marry is hovering between life and death. We’ve just found his missing brother who had been under a different identity, a different life all this time. He’s back in our lives…my fiance’s smart, genius, and now hotter than ever older brother, who happens to be my first love since childhood…just to now have my fiance close to death.
How ironic? It’s like the stars do not want us together. It’s like we will never be together…my fiance and I. I don’t know what to do…I don’t know if I can do anything.
But it’s as if somehow fate has another mind of its own. I won’t know until all this plays out. My entire life has been a roller coaster, and now it seems it will come to a stop. I just need to know how to land.
He’s there to help me…And I’m there too. Somehow the answers are there…at Summer’s Landing.
“Believe me, only women with the IQ of a bunny would fall for that. Any women with any sense of dignity would never fall for that. At least, not twice.” I never fell for Drew’s ‘hey ladies look at me, I’m so hot’ line, didn’t I? Instead I fell for the sweet sensitive and passionate man that was always there to hold me and be there for me. That was the Drew I fell for, not this guy, whoever he was.
“Boy, Nat sure got himself a feisty one, didn’t he?” Drew said under his breath.
“I may be feisty and smart, but I can still please any man of mine in bed like a girl from the Best Little Whorehouse in Texas,” I said.
Drew laughed. “I’d like to see that!”
You have. When I used to get dressed up in nothing but lace and garter belts, and tie you up in silk stockings while I made you whimper in need for me with just one touch of my feather wand.
“You got more to you than you seem, Summer,” Drew said.
“You betcha,” I said. “I also happen to know there is something my man truly can’t resist and it gets to him all the time…”
“What?” Drew asked, his eyes now taking me in from head to toe.
“Two words,” I said looking into his eyes.
He licked his lips. “What?”
“One…Feather. And two…Wand.”
