She's over her crush…isn't she?

Luci Monroe is on top of the world. She's just graduated from journalism school and she's already landed her dream job in PR. Then Cody Jarvis saunters into her office. Nothing like finding out that your teenage crush, now a gorgeous, globe-trotting, freelance photographer, is going to be your staffer for the summer. Never mind. They're both professionals. And she's over him. Kind of. Anyway, he's not interested. Cody is always waiting to disappear on his next assignment, and Luci needs someone stable. Someone who wants to build a life right here in Willow Beach…

Read an Excerpt


“CODY JARVIS! What’s he doing here?” Luci Monroe stared at the man who’d just stepped out the back door of her parents’ home. “I didn’t see his name on the guest list,” she added.
Her sister, Francine, set a plate of crab cakes on the buffet table. “Maybe Don invited him,” she said. “Didn’t he say he had a surprise for you tonight?”
“He did, but I thought he meant the combo.” Luci nodded toward the musicians her older brother had hired. Their music provided a pleasant backdrop to the party celebrating Luci’s graduation from Seattle’s University of Washington and her return to Willow Beach.
“Cody’s spotted you,” Francine said. “Better put a smile on your face.”
“I’ll be okay. I’ve been over him for at least a year.” And yet, as she watched him approach, her heart was beating wildly.
“C’mere, Luci.” Cody opened his arms and swept her up in a warm embrace.
With a resigned sigh, she looped her arms around his neck and hugged him back.
He drew away and let his gaze rove over her. “Lookin’ good, Luci.”
“Thanks. You, too.”
And he did. She always thought the clich√© “tall, dark and handsome suited him perfectly, and that still held true. He’d let his hair grow a little longer, but she liked it that way. And his brown-eyed gaze was as sharp as ever.
“Cody hugged Francine. “Hey, Fran, good to see you.”
“Hello, Cody.” Francine returned his hug.
Don joined them, carrying two bottles of beer. He handed one to Cody. “Here you go, buddy. Glad you could make it.” He turned to Luci. “How do you like your surprise?”
Luci propped her hands on her hips. “He’s a surprise, all right. I thought he was in Timbuktu or some other exotic place.”
Cody tossed his head back and laughed. “I’ll have to put that on my list. No, I just got back from Italy.”
“Still the freelance photographer?” Luci said, although she didn’t know why she asked when she knew the answer.
“Always.” Cody patted the camera attached to a leather strap slung around his neck. “And here you are, all graduated and degreed and starting a new job, I hear.”
