With that in mind, I've been looking for the perfect book.
This morning with Kathy was emptying the outside drop box, she found it.
The perfect beach read:
Her Forbidden Pirate by Cassie Edwards
Let me recount the back cover for you! Don't worry, you don't have to actually read it, I took the liberty of highlighting the important parts.
"Key West heiress Natalie Palmer has never wanted for anything-- not until a chance encounter turns her privileged world upside down. Bryce Fowler is different in every way from the pompous, wealthy suitors her father has in mind, and his seductive charm tempts her to make the most reckless decision of her life. Because Bryce is also a pirate, and once Natalie succumbs to their blistering attraction, there can be no turning back..
Bryce's painful childhood molded him into a determined, driven man who gratifies every longing, no matter what the cost. Natalie gives herself to him in a night of wanton ecstasy, captivating him in a way no woman ever has. But dark treachery swirls around the Keys and threatens their union, even as Bryce realizes that the riches he has pursued can never compare with the treasure he has found..."
Now for a little glimpse into the inner workings of my mind. The main pirate hunk's name is Bryce Fowler... I immediately think...
Ok, Matthew Bromer played a character called Bryce Larkin on NBC's Chuck (love that show!) Now Matthew Bromer has his own show (USA's White Collar- Love that show too!), in which the bad guys name is Garrett Fowler... Get it... Bryce Fowler.. Mattew Bromer is the common denominator.... This is how my brain works every day. It's exhausting!
I thought perhaps Cassie Edwards- the author if this gem of trashy romance excellence- thinks the same way, but alas, Her Forbidden Pirate is actually a reprint of a 1984 classic, originally titled Passion's Web.
