Publisher Description

Fall in love at Bayside, where sandy beaches, good friends, and true love come together in the sweet small towns of Cape Cod. Bayside Summers is a series of standalone steamy romance novels featuring alpha male heroes and sexy, empowered women. They're fun, flirty, flawed, deeply emotional, always passionate, and easy to relate to.

Hold on to your hat for Violet's wildly hot love story! Lizza is up to her old tricks again, and Violet is in for the surprise of a lifetime!

Two years ago Violet Vancroft was a nomadic artist who never wanted to put down roots and Andre Shaw was a prominent Boston physician whose roots ran too deep to unearth. Their love didn’t stand a chance—or at least that’s what Violet believed when she received a plea for help from the sister she’d never really known—so she snuck away like a thief in the night.

Now Andre travels the world setting up new medical clinics, and Violet has finally found the family she’d always craved and the roots she’d never known she wanted. When their paths cross unexpectedly, it’s not the reunion either one imagined. But they’ve never stopped loving each other, and after the dust of anger and hurt settles, passion ignites even hotter than before. As the end to Andre’s time at the Cape nears, reality sets in, leaving them no closer to a future than they were before. Violet and Andre are forced to dig deep to discover if they’re destined to live apart forever or if true love really can conquer all.

I love these stories!! They make my down time so much better!!!

Andre’ & Violet

I enjoyed reading this story. Somehow it just seemed a little different , but I loved it. Violet we learned about in previous Bayside stories, was sister to Desiree. When they were young there parents divorced and Violet lived with her mother or should I say traveled with her mother. They went to a lot of humanitarian places to help out. Well while on those humanitarian works, she met Andre a young doctor and artist. The two of them hit it off right away. They fell in love, but her mother Liza called and said her sister needed her. So she left Andre without even saying goodbye. He looked for her for two years but could not find her. He bumped into Liza and she offered him to come with her to Bayside and he accepted not knowing the Violet was her daughter. It took a lot of time and some heartbreak and love of friends and family but was able to put their love back together. I don’t want to be a complete spoiler but it’s not even the half I shared. A must read story.

Amazing story of unconditional love, forgiveness, and hotness!

Violet and Andre’s story of forgiveness and love conquers all is inspiring. I am in awe of the coffeehouse and all of the people there. Openness and acceptance are hallmarks of Melissa Foster’s stories! It took me a few stories to appreciate all of the reoccurring themes of selflessness and inclusiveness that occur in each story. While I truly appreciate a genuine love story, the focus of family in all her stories are heartwarming. In each story I have read, including this one, family and friends are at the forefront. Along with that is the creativity, weather it is art, music, or drama. These are people I want to call friends and hang out with. Thank you Melissa Foster for writing stories that feel real and make me wish they were.
