Happy Fall everyone! I’m so happy to be here to celebrate the fall season and romance. Huge thanks to Dani for teaming up with Bliss and inviting us to this wonderful spot on the Web!
I love fall. As much as I love the warm summers in Southern California, I do enjoy the cooler temperatures and getting to dress in sweaters and my Ugg boots and drinking warm beverages and eating pretty much anything with pumpkin in it.
One of my very favorite memories of fall, though, is from almost four years ago when my younger son and I walked into a pet store and fell in love with a puppy. I’m allergic to dogs, but this little guy was said to be hypoallergenic, so we huddled with him in a small room and played. Well, it only took about two seconds to know that the white, mini Labradoodle was not only the cutest puppy on the planet, but playful and friendly and lovable. It took several more seconds of petting and holding and crossing fingers to discover that I was a-ok with the tiny ball of fur and there was no way we were going home without him.

Falling in love hadn’t been on the shopping list that day, but sometimes the very best things are those that aren’t planned.
I had never had an inside dog before so it was big learning curve, but so fun and wonderful and yes, a little tiring at the beginning. We named him Harry, after one of my favorite fictional characters, Harry Dresden. He’s the best pal, always sitting under my chair at my feet when I write, cuddling with me on the couch when I watch TV, and greeting me at the front door when I get home from the day job. I never really understood what people meant when they said their dog was part of the family. Until now. I tell stories about him just like I do my sons! And he’s always, always there, with a tail wag, a kiss, a playful bark. Our little Harry makes every day a little brighter and every day I love him a little bit more.

A temporary agreement neither could keep…
Brainy, organized Sophie Birch is no beach bunny. In fact, she’s totally out of her element among the sun-bronzed crowd at a film festival in beautiful White Strand Cove. When a surf lesson introduces her to Zane Hollander, suddenly she's up close and personal with the world's sexiest surf star. But what can a great-looking, experienced athlete possibly see in a klutzy out-of-towner who’s never set foot in the ocean?
Zane Hollander's playboy reputation has never been a problem…until recently. Now his management team wants him on his best behavior to entice a meaningful new sponsor. Sophie Birch is the perfect girl to help reform his image. She's genuine and respected—and their relationship is purely fictional. But the more Sophie blooms under the beachy sun, the more Zane knows he'll just break her heart. Because nothing's more important to Zane than following the tide.
