Book Promo and Giveaway: Summer's Road by Kelly Moran

First of all, a huge thanks to Patti for letting me intrude on her blog today. I'm going to let Patti pick one commenter to win a FREE eBook copy of my upcoming release, Summer's Road, due out March 25th wherever books are sold. Feel free to also ask any questions you have.

Summer's Road
~Kelly Moran

After her father’s death, Summer Quinn realizes just how alone she feels in the world. With no family to fill her life now, she finds comfort among friends, but yearns for true love, contentment, and family. When her boyfriend, Matt, suggests they raise their relationship to a higher level, Summer jumps at the chance to get everything she’s always wanted. Only, she doesn’t expect the heat arising between her and her best friend, Ian – a man who never seems to settle down. A man the complete opposite of what she’s looking for. But when her estranged mother reappears after twenty-eight years, Summer’s world completely flips upside down. As secrets from her family’s past and Ian’s true feelings for her emerge, Summer’s now faced with choices she’s not sure she can make. The rest of her life’s happiness hinges on her confronting a past she’d rather deny and legitimately opening her heart to love, even if it’s not where she expected to find it.

Summer stepped onto the pier and gazed out over the ocean. Nighttime here was different than back home. There weren’t any city lights to disguise the stars. The ocean looked black, as dark as the sky above, so that across the horizon, she couldn’t tell where the sky ended and the water began. It was kind of like looking into heaven, like looking into the earth’s soul.

The drum of footsteps behind her broke her from her reverie. Turning, she saw Ian coming toward her. Shirtless, he hadn’t even bothered with the button on his jeans, he strode closer in bare feet with a bottle of wine in one hand and glasses in the other.

All she could think was how damn delicious he looked in the moonlight. Heat pooled in her belly and spread throughout her body like a wildfire. Ian Memmer. Not good.

“You shouldn’t be out here by yourself,” he said, pouring a glass of white wine and handing it to her, the look in his eyes saying it looks like you need this.

She took the glass from him and sipped before answering. “That’s the point, to be by myself.”
He raked a gaze over her. “And if you fell in?”

Maybe it was the moonlight. Maybe it was the call of the ocean. Whatever it was, something made her want to test the boundaries between them again. Matt or not. Friendship or not. Consequences be damned. “Then you’d save me. You always do.”

  10. I have a my copy of Summer's Road but wanted to stop by to say hello! Good luck to all the commenters and to Kelly :)

  11. I had the pleasure of reading Summer's Road before it was published and thoroughly enjoyed it as I know the winner (please don't include me in the list) will.

    Wonderful blog take-over Kelly as everything here shows your book in the bright spotlight it should be seen in.

    Book Addict Patti must be proud to have given over her controls to promote such a book and I know both of you will be benefiting from such an event.

  12. Hi Kelly - best wishes with your book. I saw that you have written some other books but they are only in paperback (at least on Amazon). Do you have plans to release any of them in ebook format?

  15. @ Rhiannon and Sarah-- thanks so much for the support and for coming out.

    @ Jen-- eBook releases are up to the publisher, and they aren't doing that currently. But SUMMER'S ROAD should be available in eBook soon, Amazon just doesn't have it up yet. Thanks so much for coming by!

    @ Linda and Nancy-- Thanks so much for the interest in the book. I sure hope you like it!


  16. Sounds like a great read. Will have to check your other books out at the local library.

  17. @ Sheena-- thanks. Not sure if the library will have them though. With the state of library associations, they're so limited on what they can purchase. xo

  18. I woke up Sunday a.m. to find my blog, my 500 plus followers, my 100plus author interviews, and my 200 plus reviews gone. Blogger gave no explanation, but I think the account was hacked. Change your password often!

    I have reloaded the interviews and reviews, plus redesigned the blog. But if you could, please hit the "follow" button so I can reclaim the fellow bloggers I miss. I'm still following you, as my account remained--thank goodness!

    Thank you!
