From the Author
This is the second book I've written set in my fictional Adirondack village of Starling, New York. The first was Christmas Light (originally titled A Light in the Window), a contemporary romance novella about Jade Engel, a young woman who returns home after eight long years away.
I've adored Jade's younger brother, Jeremy, since he appeared in Christmas Light, and I'm thrilled to share his journey to happily-ever-after with Elizabeth in this book. All the stories in the Christmas in NY and Heroes of NY can be read independently or out of order and all will still make sense.
About the Author
Jolyse Barnett may not be able to cook to save her life, but she can whip up a delicious romantic tale. Her debut novella, CHRISTMAS LIGHT, hit the Kindle Bestseller Lists in November 2014. Since then, she has published in contemporary romance and romantic suspense, savoring every moment of the journey.
In addition to writing fun, sexy romance, Jolyse considers her life blessed when surrounded by twenty-five tweens in her classroom who thankfully appreciate her sense of humor and allow her to entertain and immerse them in a world of creativity and learning.
When she's not writing, reading, exercising or teaching, Jolyse can be found sipping margaritas in her sunny backyard, watching movies, or on an exotic getaway. Best of all, she gets to experience everything with her real-life hero of twenty-plus years, two great kids, and treasured friends and family.

I liked the chemistry between them, but I felt that the secrets each held onto were too slow to come out. At times the pace was a bit slow for me. Jeremy is not your typical hero, which makes him interesting in a unique way. While he is dealing with issues, a big part of him is stuck in the past and he hasn't really moved on. He lets a past experience still have a lot of power over him, how he feels, and how he lives his life. It was sad as much as it was frustrating. His character was really up and down for me...sometimes showing great maturity, and other times not quite very much at all. Elizabeth has her own issues that color her present, and she is slow to reveal all also. Some of that I understood, other times I didn't. There was a fair bit of angst and inner turmoil in His Kiss, and if you like that in a romance you will really enjoy His Kiss.
I liked the mix of secondary characters in His Kiss and the family dynamics!
I thought both of the main characters had very strong characteristics when it didn't come to relationships. They both work hard, and are very driven.
I'd recommend His Kiss to romance readers who enjoy a rocky past and a hopeful future.
Author Jolyse Barnett has delivered another wonderfully written story for the second offering in the Summer in New York trilogy, which ties back to the Christmas in New York stories (written by three of the same authors) via Jeremy’s sister, Jade. Her characters are real people, flawed and with serious problems that makes it easy to root for them to persevere and finally get their happily ever after. I look forward to future offerings from this author.
