I was a single mom for eleven years before I married my husband on a beach in Hawaii. We have a teenager and a threenager in the house, so it can be hard to get time alone. To keep the love and romance alive, we decide to take a night or two to ourselves every year on our anniversary. But we make it fun. We live in Washington state, so each year we pick a new part of the state or region to discover. It’s also good for researching future books! We live in a fairly big state and can take many hours to drive across it. We always have fun discovering the sights around us, talking, and listening to the various music stations that come in as we drive. This year we picked the Palouse region, which is southeast Washington. This time of year it’s gorgeous green rolling hills and farmland. We made sure to visit Palouse falls, which was created from the ice age floods. It was an incredible trip, and I look forward to choosing where we’ll go each year. Next year we celebrate 5 years married. We’ll have to pick something extra exciting. What do you do for your anniversary or date nights?
Get Tempting Adam by Shelli Stevens for just 99¢
Christy Wallace is a respectable Spanish teacher. Not many people know she also moonlights as a salsa dance instructor. When she promises one her friends she’ll pose as his girlfriend, she doesn’t think a little game of pretend will be too complicated.
Adam Young is all cowboy. He’s also the owner of Adam’s Apples, the fastest-growing cider business in eastern Washington. But that’s something he doesn’t share with people he meets, including the hot dance instructor he’s interested in. But he realizes he’s not the only one with a few secrets when Christy walks in to a family event on the arm of his brother.
Little secrets shouldn’t matter if all this was just a quick fling…
