It might be love set in a mountain setting.
Or, on a beach.
It might be love based on a mutual summer passion (think sailing or snorkeling or canoeing).
Or, on unexpected proximity.
Whichever or wherever it happens, it is usually a love to remember, even if it rarely lasts past the dog days of August.
There is no doubt everyone deserves at least one great Summer Love, but for readers maybe a more important question is: Does Summer Love make for good summer reading? Hmmmm.
And #1 New York Times Bestselling Author Robyn Carr certainly made it sound good in A Summer In Sonoma, as did #1 New York Times Bestselling Author Linda Lael Miller in Big Sky Summer (Book 4 in her Parable, Montana, Series) and #1 New York Times Bestselling Author Susan Wiggs in Summer by the Sea and A Summer Affair (Book 5 in her Calhoun Chronicles Series).
Heck, even historical romance maven Mary Balogh tucked A Summer to Remember into her Bedwyn Saga Series, proving at least to this writer that Summer Love has always been a thing . . . maybe just enjoyed in bloomers instead of bikinis.
So how about you? When the temperature starts to rise and the mountains or beach begin to call, is there a special Summer Love that you recall fondly?
