About the Author

Vanessa Grant's love affair with writing fiction began during a protracted illness at the age of 12 when she decided to write a novel of her own, sitting up in bed using the typewriter she'd been given for her birthday. Not a computer, not an electric typewriter, but a then-state-of-the-art manual typewriter. The story, a romance, ground to a halt on page 50 but Vanessa never forgot the excitement of bringing her own characters to life. She later wrote three unpublished novels, developing her skills as a writer while living on a remote lighthouse during what she thinks of as her baby-making, basket weaving, beach-walking days.
     In 1985 Vanessa's novel Pacific Disturbance was published in hardcover by Mills and Boon. She now has over 10 million books sold and has been translated into 15 languages. She also has written what one critic described as, "by far the best writing book I've ever read." Writing Romance, published by Self Counsel Press, won the Under the Covers Best Writing Book Award, and is currently in its third edition.
     Over the years her love of storytelling and her curiosity about people led Vanessa to study psychology, volunteer on a crisis line, complete individual and relationship counselor training, volunteer as a peer counselor for a family life organization, and tell stories about life, love, and secrets. Vanessa is also an accountant, a university professor, a publisher of educational materials and eBooks, and a popular international speaker with considerable media experience.
     Vanessa and her husband have lived on an island in the Pacific Northwest since returning from a two year sailing cruise to Mexico some years ago. Vanessa loves hearing from readers and from other writers.

More About the Author

"Writing fiction is a perfect life choice for someone like Vanessa Grant who can't make up her mind what she wants to do when she grows up!"

There are so many choices and I want to do them all. In real life I've taken a lot of roads: I've studied psychology, volunteered on a crisis line and as a peer counselor for a family life organization, worked as an accountant and a software developer, more recently taught accounting and fraud investigation at a university, and best of all-told stories about life, love, and secrets. In my stories, my heroes and heroines have lived many of the lives I'm fascinated by.

I live with my wonderful husband and two aging-but-energetic Australian Shepherds on Vancouver Island ... and every so often we indulge in wanderlust and leave the island to go exploring.

In addition to publication in print, most of my novels have now been released as eBooks for Kindle, Sony, Apple and Kobo as well as other formats. Free samples are available for all my eBook editions.

I love discussing storytelling, books, and the creative process, so don't hesitate to post a comment on my blog or one of my pages here on the site, or contact me through my Web site at VanessaGrant.com, or on Twitter @Vanessa_Grant

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Claire would have preferred to skip her high school reunion, but her best friend Jennifer substitutes romance novels for the astronomy journals Clair packed. Insisting that it's time to shake Claire out of her pleasant rut of stars and solitude, she also sneaks a too-tight red dress into Claire's suitcase. Much against her better judgment, Claire finds herself returning to Port Townsend, Washington.
When she finds herself alone with Blake, the man she'd had a crush on during high school, fantasy hits high gear. Claire longs for a wildly improbable affair with the man she'd once watched wistfully from the high school halls, intending to take sensations and memories back to her mountain top retreat with the stars. Sharing her passion with Blake makes everything in her life feel, better, sharper, more real. She can't stay away from this man who's eyes fill with challenge and speculation.
Blake promises a week of passion and fantasy in exchange for Claire's assistance with a troubled young man. He tells Claire that they are safe -- that there is no danger of falling in love. Blake doesn't have time for a serious relationship. He is too busy working overtime, taking on too many jobs to pay his sister's university tuition. He is already stretched to the limit with the shipyard, his aid to troubled boys, and his family. Blake has a passion for hard work, fast boats, and rough kids. Any woman who enters his life must be strictly temporary.
Soon, however, he won't long be able to deny that he fell in love with Claire when his eyes found her across the crowded banquet room. The years had erased the painfully shy girl, leaving a vibrant, fascinating woman. He can't walk away from this woman with intense blue eyes and passion boiling just beneath the surface.

I picked this book up to read on my vacation and it was perfect. Nice and light, with a building romance between a strong female lead and a sexy guy that you know is too good to be true (that's why we read, right?) The author is especially talented at creating sexual tension, and then writing the most scorching sex scenes while still keeping them tasteful. I'd actually like to read more books about this couple and their amazing chemistry. I'm knocking off a star for editing because there were too many errors that should have been easy to spot and correct (like spelling Blake's name wrong twice on the same page), but overall I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anyone that loves a steamy and satisfying romance.

I loved the story from the beginning. The character development of a shy Claire and the former bad-boy/now all-round good guy Blake was nicely done. Most of the dialog was believable and I enjoyed the humor interspersed throughout the book. It could have used a little more editing and there were a couple of scenes where I had difficulty visualizing where people were in proximity to others and the surrounding. The whole idea of showing how much a person can change and become responsible after high school was delightfully refreshing. I loved the book and actually read it 3 times. Would I read another of her books - you bet!

Spoiler alert: I would have preferred more closure at the end. It seemed to end abruptly with several unresolved issues. I also was enjoying reading so much I also did not want the story to end so quickly.

Arizona astronomer Claire Welland is happy with her life just the way it is, or is she? She loves her work and she's just found a comet and had it named after her. She's also in line for a prestigious job in Chile. The only real thing she finds lacking in her life these days, is the longing to have a child of her own. Her friend Jennifer has a five month old baby girl named Tammie and Clair can't get over the fact that every time she sees them together, it makes her yearn to have a child of her own.

But right now that's not possible, she doesn't even have a boyfriend and hasn't had one for a few years now. Heck, Kevin was her one and only boyfriend, and that was way back when they were still in college together. That didn't mean she still didn't wish for a child of her own though.

Then one day her friend, Jennifer talks her into going back for her 15th year high school reunion. Claire wants no part of it. She didn't much care for her high school years back then, so why torcher herself by going back now? BUT....After many long talks with Jennifer, she finally convinces her to go. She not only convinces Claire to go, but she also talks her into letting her hair down, and into going after her high school crush and having herself a week long fling with him.

The last thing she expects when she comes home to Port Townsend, Washington, for her high school reunion is to be swept off her feet by Blake McKenzie, or Mac as everyone seems to call him these days..

Claire is surprised to find out that Blake is not the bad boy he once was, no...Blake is now a prominent shipbuilder dedicated to helping local troubled teens make something out of their lives.
