Boys of Summer

A collection of stories by

Personal Best by Rhyll Biest

What do cocky Olympic water polo players have in common with cranky equine surgeons? Nothing, thank heaven, as recently-divorced vet, Eve Ransom, would say. But when she decides to teach hunky athlete, Cain Nadeau, a lesson about chatting up strangers on planes, she thinks to trick him into backing off by offering a week of handyman duties. Before she knows it, he's stripping more than just her house paint - he's stripping away her resistance to him one kiss at a time...

Fan Girl and the Geek by Krystal Brookes

Rhett Williams, the hunky captain on the TV show Starship Einstein, is coming to a convention in the UK, and Shona Ross is determined to meet him. Having spent years dreaming about the handsome actor, she nurtures dreams of becoming more than just a fan.

When Rhett does not live up to expectations and leaves Shona despondent, Daniel Adams, the geeky kid from the show, befriends her. Only he's no longer a geeky kid. In fact, her attraction to him is almost interplanetary. Can Shona get over her infatuation, forget about Daniel's weak role, and see the man for what he is now?

Spike by Lyncee Shillard

Mutual passion was something Brody and Rae had in abundance, but then Brody disappeared in the night. Now he travels on the pro beach volleyball circuit while Rae keeps control of the locals at the tavern. Still, after all these years, she wonders what if...

Forgiveness isn't something that comes easy for Rae, but she'll do whatever she can to ease her sister's struggles with her five-year-old niece's fight against cancer. In desperation, Rae calls Brody and asks him to do a benefit volleyball match.

Though at the top of his game, only one thing keeps Brody from enjoying his hard-earned success - memories of Rae. When she calls, he believes this may be his chance to make it right with her.

Fighting her old attraction and the flames between her thighs, Rae is determined to stay out of the ripped volleyball player's bed. At least until he shows up with his teammate, Treyvon. Is the hate she's groomed against Brody for the last seven years strong enough to keep her from falling for both men?

The game is on.

My Bad Boy Biker by Sam Crescent

Mandy Straus is looking for a distraction. She's quit her job and escaped her lecherous boss, it's Friday, and for once, she doesn't want to be a good girl. A drink and a lay is what she wants to knock out her dull sense of routine.

Leather-and-denim-clad Dan Sawyer fits the bad-boy image Mandy hungers for. He likes his women fast and easy. Though Mandy isn't prepared for his gritty speech and steamy moves, she goes with the burn of attraction she feels.

One night soon turns into a weekend. However, there is more to Dan than meets the eye. Can Mandy find it in her heart to forgive him for the secret he harbors concerning her? Is it possible for a bad boy and a good girl to have a future?

An Enchanting Surprise by Brian Collier

Skie Wilson is a simple girl with simple tastes. Give her the job at the Cambridge Inn, her outrageous best friend, some puzzles, and a beer, and she's good to go. Of course, the one thing missing from that mix is passion and heat - the kind that makes her heart race, her toes curl, and her body tingle.

Jaded by a cheating fiancé, Skie has avoided commitment ever since. No man has caught her eye enough to make her change her mind, at least not until the Spanish Olympic team arrives for their last summer of training before the event. The scorching hot athletes offer quite the temptation, with their sweat-glistened muscles and taut bodies, but one sinfully sexy triathlete captures Skie's attention the most. Will she hide behind the safety of the inn's "no fraternization" rule, or will she let her hair down and have a little fun?

Diving In by Andra Ashe

Mia and Luke have a great relationship and a sizzling hot sex life. So why is she fantasizing about the surf-drenched hunk on the beach? And why doesn't Luke mind?
