Sweet Discoveries

I don't know about you, but as we move into the cooler days of Fall, I could use something sweet and tasty.  No, not ice cream or candy, but a good book that features some sweet treats. My guest today in My Writing Corner brings us just such a delight. Cherie Colyer is visiting today and brings us her new book in the One Scoop or Two series from The Wild Rose Press: Salted Caramel Bliss with a Wedding Kiss. How can you go wrong with a title like that?

Cherie is a professional network technician by day and a novelist by night, She says she lives a quiet life in the Chicago suburbs with her charming husband. She tells us she has four amazing sons she loves dearly. Her writing goal is to weave together stories with a paranormal twist. She’s the author of the Embrace series, Challenging Destiny, Damned When I Didn’t, and Friends to the End. She tells us she waltzed into the adult novel world with Merry Little Wishing Spritz, and now she’s delighted to be back with her latest book.  Let's get a blurb!


Roman Briggs built a life for himself in Siren’s Cove. He restored the Sugar Cones Ice Cream Parlor and turned it into a popular stop along the boardwalk. He has everything he needs until a certain blue-eyed woman wanders back into his life.

 

Seer and witch Peyton Woods isn’t sure why her latest visions feature a man and boy she’s never met. Determined to find out, she casts a spell that leads her to a small beach town in Maine and, to her utter surprise, the man who broke her heart eight years earlier.


Peyton's left with one question. Why didn't her magic show her him?

   "We’re meeting up with Henry and some friends,” Roman said. “We always watch the fireworks together during the summer festival. You’re welcome to join us.” 
    Since I was there to see Henry and Travis, I couldn’t say no. 

    I expected to stop at a picnic table, but Roman strolled past them on his way to the docks. 

    “We’re going on a boat?” I asked. On land, if the metaphorical shield protecting my heart from breaking cracked, I could leave. But on a boat, I’d be trapped. 

    “Just a mile out. We can see the fireworks better. Come on.” He jerked his head to the side. When I still hesitated, he added, “I don’t bite.” 


    I remembered him nibbling all the right places when we dated. The memories sent an elated shiver through me. Sex with Roman had always been amazing. At least, I thought it was. Roman obviously enjoyed love-making with Travis’s mom more. The thought added a new layer of protection around my heart. I reminded myself that I was over him. His endless brown eyes and smoky voice no longer had any sway over me. Now, if I could just convince the fireflies in my stomach to settle down, I’d be okay. 

    I could do this. I could be held captive on a boat with Roman and not let old emotions ruin the evening. Maybe we were destined to be friends all along. 

    That thought had me agreeing to go with them to watch the fireworks. 

    Roman led the way to the pier and a battered blue- and-white fishing boat. I stumbled. The boat looked as if it had made hundreds of exhausting voyages and was ready to sink. 

    “She isn’t pretty,” Roman said as he lifted Travis onboard. “But she’s safe.” 

    “Sturdiest fishing boats on these waters,” Henry said from the back of the boat. He sat on a folding chair next to an older Black couple. 

    “It’s the only fishing boat docked in this harbor,” a white-haired man said, clapping Henry on the back as he walked by.


    “Don’t listen to Mattie.” Roman climbed in and then held his hand out to help me.
I glanced over my shoulder, finally second-guessing this whole trip. What had I been thinking, racing off to follow a vision and then sticking around even after I found out Roman was here? I should have fled Siren’s Cove the moment Karly said his name. 

    But then Henry coughed as if choking, and Travis patted his back, just like I’d seen in a vision. 

    Jinx jumped on my legs. She wasn’t worried about boarding the vessel. I scooped her up and whispered, “Don’t get attached to these people. Hanging with them is a onetime thing.” 

    Jinx licked my face. I seriously wondered if I should trust the instincts of such a young familiar. Maybe magical companions grew into their sixth sense instead of being born with it. Past the boat, a spark shimmered above the water. Was the spell that led me here telling me this was the right course to take? Or was the glow of the evening sun reflecting off a buoy? I hoped to soon find out.
