From the Author
Sometimes there are characters that come to you and just won't give up until you write their stories! That's what happened with the characters in the At the Shore Contemporary Romance series. Maggie, Connie, and Emma were filled with such spirit, hopefulness, and fun, that I knew I had to share those very special women with you.
I started with Maggie's Romeo and Juliet tale of enemies to lovers. I fell even more in love with her and Owen, the hero, as well as the cast of interesting and unique characters around them. Connie, the determined lawyer (who is probably the most like me). Emma, the wedding planner who can't see a path for herself to the happily-ever-after. Jonathan, Owen's brother, a genius who marches to his own drummer. Carlo, the stoic and supportive caterer who is hopelessly in love with Emma. I love them all and I hope you will, too.
Look for What Happens in Summer, Connie and Jonathan's story in Spring 2018.

Contemporary Romance -Oct. 3rd, 2017
4 ½ stars
Sweet, poignant and utterly delicious this book surprised me with how much I fell in love with its characters.
Maggie Sinclair seems to have it all. Beauty, brains and wealth. Well, wealth if she can save her family business from going under. Unfortunately, her father refuses to change business strategies and their company is losing revenues. She has mortgaged their properties in a bid to stay alive and keep their loyal employees from losing their jobs. But now Maggie is desperate and if she doesn’t change things soon and find a monetary backer things may all be gone in smoke before she knows it.
Owen Pierce has always had a crush on his beach side neighbor Maggie Sinclair. But due to an unknown feud between their families has stayed away. But Owen finds he just can’t resist Maggie and when opportunity presents itself to be in her company he grabs it. But his controlling and unhappy father will make his life miserable unless he finds a way to appease him and that may mean betraying Maggie’s new found trust....
Maggie and Owen seem like childhood sweetheart- only they never had a change for a deeper relationship because of the bitter feud between their fathers. Now older, both feel they can make their own decisions but Owen has always been the peace keeper and the responsible person in his family. In a bid to keep everyone happy he make a rash decision that may place him permanently from Maggie’s love. The romance between Owen and Maggie was tender and maybe a little sappy but I loved all of it. I wanted them so much to be together and I liked how they knew each other from childhood and could be real and vulnerable with each other. They were friends that like, respect, and find each other attractive. There were no real games between them and I enjoyed the sincerity of their emotions. I had the feeling that there never was a serious romantic love interest for either of them because both secretly cared for the other so much. Because the author opens the reader to their flaws I felt that I was connected to real people with hopes and dreams not two rich, good-looking urbanities from a prestigious background that I had no relationship with. Also, Maggie’s supportive friends made me feel a part of family and I hope they find their own love interests, too!
Sweet and refreshing - this heartfelt romance will put a smile on your face and in your heart.

Luckily, One Summer Night has much more to it than just a pretty cover. Sweet, romantic, and charming, One Summer Night is the perfect enemies to lovers romance.
One Summer Night introduces the alternating perspectives of Maggie Sinclair and Owen Pierce, two adults who've been caught in the crossfire of their fathers' feud since they were children. I liked Maggie from the moment she was introduced. She was loyal, sweet as sugar, and determined. Better yet, she was a good friend, daughter, and employer. It added a lot to her character to see her relationships with her friends, father, and employees develop over the course of the book; however, I will say nothing had me chuckling more than when her and her best friends got together. They were a funny crew. I enjoyed getting to know Owen as well. Fierce, protective, and ambitious, Owen is the prime example of a swoon-worthy male lead. I loved seeing him and Maggie interact, and just like with Maggie, I love that Caridad Pineiro added in a special bond between Owen and someone else - in this case, his brother.
The plot in One Summer Night was the typical enemies to lovers romance, but as someone who never gets old of that step-up, I eagerly ate up every word of it. It was interesting to learn about what the feud was about. It wasn't revealed at the start so there was some time to play around with some theories. I also enjoyed that Owen and Maggie's struggles at work where chronicled. I think in some ways there something everyone can relate to. The constant switch between settings also had me happy. I loved the combo between the bustling streets of New York City and the idyllic, picture perfect beach house setting. Plus it didn't hurt that Caridad's description were rich. Last but not least, the romance was great. I enjoyed the steamy will-they-or-won't they aspect in the beginning, and it was fun to see the drama from what Owen was hiding unfold.
One Summer Night is a perfect for readers of the romance genre, especially those like me who love a good setting! I simply can't wait to see who's story is up next. I'm hoping for Connie and Jonathon (I think I know what she's hiding at the end, and if I'm right, it's certainly going to make for an interesting time!).
