Orange County, California, a place of almost year-round sunshine, is bordered by the sandy white beaches on the south and the foothills to the north. In places, remnants of the original orange groves that once covered the area still send their spicy sweet scent to perfume the air. It’s a land of beauty, entertainment, and creativity – the perfect place to dream up stories of love. Romance isn’t limited to one season within a year. From the celebrations on New Year’s Eve, to the sweet sensations of a summer weekend, to spooky Halloween, and into the chill of winter, love blossoms at the least expected times. In this anthology, the Orange County Chapter of the Romance Writers of America has brought together seventeen fresh voices. Many thanks go out to all the contributors who donated their stories and services, and keep an eye out for future stories from these talented contributors. Enjoy your taste of the talent OCC offers. We invite you to celebrate all year long through Romancing the Pages.
