Shore Feels Right is coming in November from Liquid Silver. Here's a sneak peek of what the novel is about:
Once a pariah among her coworkers, marine biologist Monica Sims has spent months reinventing herself as she seeks redemption. A history of failed relationships leaves her leery of romantic involvement, until she meets Cosby Williams, the new co-owner of Nauti-Toys watercraft rentals. As things heat up between them, Gulf Shore Aquarium responds to the stranding of a group of pilot whales. When a billionaire bachelor lends his private plane to the rescue effort, Monica catches his eye — and an obsession is born. How will she cope with the unwanted attention? And will her past sins come back to doom her newfound happiness with Cosby?
Monica was, for lack of a better word, the villain of The Shore Thing. She's the ex-girlfriend of aquarium chief photographer/videographer Evan Sanders, and she thinks nothing of disrupting his relationship with education specialist Danielle "Dani" Davidson.
Just as Monica despairs of ever finding a man of her own to love, she meets Cosby, who has come into Bikini Barb's Bar & Grill to have a drink with his brother, Gavin.
All of your favorite characters from The Shore Thing are back in Shore Feels Right, and you'll find out what's next for Dani and Evan, head dolphin trainer Flipper O'Riley and Trident, the rescued baby dolphin. Plus, readers will meet a couple of new faces: animal rights activist Tara Langley and billionaire Truman Raines, a buddy of aquarium director Wesley Coffey, Jr.
