The Summer Lake contemporary romance series follows a group of friends from a small lakeside town in the California hills. They have kept in touch over the years and now, in their early thirties, their lives are drawing them back to Summer Lake and to each other.
Laugh Like You’ve Never Cried is Michael’s story. He grew up in Summer Lake with Emma, Pete, Missy and Ben. He’s lived in Australia for the last fifteen years, but now he’s home. It’s time for him and his son to settle down to life at the lake.
He’s back with his family, back with his friends, back to doing the work he loves as a small town doctor. Life is good – but could it be even better with the right woman by his side?
He knows who the right woman is, but he doesn’t know if he can persuade her to stay – at the lake, let alone in his life!
About the Author
Hi, I’m SJ. A coffee addict, lover of chocolate and drinker of good red wines. I’m a lost soul and a hopeless romantic. Reading and writing are necessary parts of who I am. Though perhaps not as necessary as coffee! I can drink coffee without writing, but I can’t write without coffee.
I grew up loving romance novels, my first boyfriends were book boyfriends, but life intervened, as it tends to do, and I wandered down the paths of non fiction for many years. My life changed completely a couple of years ago and I returned to Romance to find my escape.
I write ‘Sweet N Steamy’ stories because to me there is enough angst and darkness in real life. My favorite romances are happy escapes with a focus on fun, friendships and happily-ever-afters, just like the ones I write.
These days I live in beautiful Montana, the last best place. If I’m not reading or writing you’ll find me just down the road in the park – Yellowstone. I have deer, eagles and the occasional bear for company, and I like it that way :0)
