Hot in the Hamptons by Liz Matis, Wendy S. Marcus & Jennifer Probst - Blog Tour, Guest Post by Wendy S. Marcus & Giveaway

Hi Everyone!

Thank you for stopping by to help me celebrate the August 4th release of the Hot in the Hamptons series, three new adult novellas written by three different authors, Summer Dreaming by Liz Matis, Summer Temptation by me (Wendy S. Marcus) and Summer Sins by Jennifer Probst. Each book is written to stand alone, but when read together you’ll find overlapping story that will enrich your reading experience.

Participating in the Hot in the Hamptons series was very exciting for me, because I got to work with two good friends who are also excellent writers. A win win!! But also because Summer Temptation is my first story set at the beach.

My pale complexion aside, I love the beach!!! For me it’s more about the beauty of the ocean (and the beauty of in-shape male bodies in bathing suits!) than tanning. I love listening to the waves (and people watching behind my sunglasses while I pretend to read on my Kindle!) I enjoy the cool, salt-tinged breezes (and drinking ice cold alcoholic beverages in the middle of the day! Where else is it okay to do that?)

Ah, yes, I love the beach!

So do Kelsey, Leigh, and Storme, three friends who decide to spend one last summer together after their college graduation, before they begin their lives as responsible adults. Did you do that after graduation? Take some time off to spend with your friends or to travel before taking on your adult life responsibilities? I didn’t. After reading Kelsey’s story in Summer Dreaming and Storme’s story in Summer Sins and writing Leigh’s story in Summer Temptation, I wish I had. All three young women certainly had a summer to remember!

In addition to being my first book set at the beach, Summer Temptation is also my first new adult novella. I loved writing about a recent college graduate. But my question is this, at the end of a new adult novella or novel, do you feel the story is over? Because I kind of feel like the hero and heroine’s story is just getting started. And I wonder if there’d be interest in a continuation of the series down the line, after Kelsey, Leigh and Storme have settled into their lives as adults. Is that something you’d be interested in reading?

I’m looking for a hero. Not.

You’d think as a new college grad I’d be looking for the perfect job and the perfect man. Well, I’m not. Summer is here and instead of plotting my future, I’m playing in the Hamptons with my two best friends. Sun and sex is all I’m
looking for. Then I meet Sean Dempsey, my fantasy lifeguard in the flesh. But he is more than just a hot bod with a whistle. And after he makes a daring save, I’m thinking a hero is exactly what I’ve been looking for all along.

To the rescue...

By day I guard the beaches in the Hamptons, by night I’ve had my fair share of summer flings. Then I meet Kelsey Mitchell, a girl with eyes like the setting
sun and I burn for more. Something I have no right to ask of her...forever.

Love burns hotter in the Hamptons. Come play.

Meet Leigh DeGray...

After graduating college with honors and landing the job of my dreams in New York City, I’m off to The Hamptons to spend the summer with my two best friends.
My life seems perfect, right? It’s not. The truth is, I have a secret that may make the future I’d planned so carefully completely fall apart. A hot summer romance is the absolute last thing I’m looking for... Until I meet a man who tempts me like no other and shows me a hot summer romance is exactly what I need.

Meet Nick Kenzy...

After two years of working my ass off as a Wall Street analyst, I’m out of a job, with no warning, no thank you, and no severance. Am I angry? You’re damn right I
am. So when I head to the Hamptons for the weekend to spend time with my granddad, I plan to regroup and relax before I return to the city to hit the job search hard. I don’t need any distractions. Then I meet Leigh. Suddenly, a summer temptation makes me question everything I want for my future...

SUMMER SINS by Jennifer Probst

Summer fun before my wedding...

I have one goal this summer. Hang with my besties for some much needed sun, sand, and relaxation while I put the final touches on my idyllic wedding. I didn't count on meeting a smart-mouthed, bad boy biker whose gaze burns hotter than a beach bonfire. I never planned to lose myself, body and soul, and question my entire future. Now, I have to make a choice that’s tearing me apart, and could shatter the lives of the two men I love...

Turns into summer sins....

I have one goal this summer. CHILL. Do nothing. Nada. I need simple before I have to head into Manhattan to take on a high powered position on Wall Street. I didn't count on a dark haired, inky- eyed spitfire who'd spin my world upside down, or make me burn for things I never thought I wanted. I vowed to make her my summer fling, but had no idea she was claimed by another. And now that she possessed not only my body but my soul, the stakes are too high for me to lose her...
Love burns hotter in the Hamptons. Come play.
