Meg West lives on the west coast of Florida with her husband, daughter, and two golden retrievers. She's the author of Love on Longboat Key, the first in a trilogy of romances set on the barrier islands off Sarasota, available from Champagne Books.
Love on Longboat Key is a sweet holiday tale about finding romance on the beach.
Julie Joseph dreads spending Christmas in Florida with her cranky elderly parents. Yet that changes when she arrives at Sun Tower and meets the eligible bachelor whose equally quarrelsome parents have just moved into the penthouse.
Thomas Briggs IV is hardly the type Julie has dated in the past: he's tall, handsome, and out-of-this-world wealthy. He's also the son of the CEO of Pilgrim Mutual Insurance, where Julie works as a copywriter.
Julie has just a few days to date Thomas before they both have to return to the ice and snow blanketing the Northeast. But there's one big problem: Julie's rival for Thomas's attention happens to be her gorgeous, but mean-spirited boss at Pilgrim Mutual.
Can Julie overcome the odds and beat out Amanda Ford to win Thomas's heart?
