  1. Great giveaway. I love light, summer reads, preferably with a holiday setting, hot weather and a hot romance. Second Chance Summer is great but also a heartbreaker.

  25. nice, is it one of your past favourites? I'm reading Revel right now, and it's really summery. It takes place off the coast of Maine - which is in my mind absolute summer perfection :) xo leanna
