Fall in love at Bayside, where sandy beaches, good friends, and true love come together in the sweet small towns of Cape Cod.
BAYSIDE SUMMERS is a series of standalone steamy romance novels featuring alpha male heroes and sexy, empowered women. They’re fun, flirty, flawed, deeply emotional, always passionate, and easy to relate to.
In Bayside Desires…
As the co-owner of Bayside Resorts, Rick Savage has a fabulous job working with his best friends and brother, and a thriving business in Washington, DC, which he’ll be returning to at the end of the summer. Spending time with his family is great, but being back on Cape Cod has unearthed painful memories. When sweet, smart, and overly cautious Desiree Cleary moves in next door, Rick is drawn to the sexy preschool teacher, and she just might prove to be the perfect distraction.
Running an art gallery was not in preschool teacher Desiree Cleary’s plans, but after being tricked into coming to her impetuous, unreliable mother’s aid, she’s stuck spending the summer with the badass half sister she barely knows and a misbehaving dog. If that’s not frustrating enough, she can’t escape the sparks igniting with her strikingly handsome and pushy neighbor, Rick, who makes all her warning bells go off.
Passion ignites as Desiree and Rick spend long summer nights sharing heartfelt confessions and steamy kisses. For the first time in years Rick is enjoying life again instead of hiding behind mounds of work miles away from his family. Desiree has touched him in a way that makes him want to slow down. Only slowing down means dealing with his demons, and he isn’t sure who he’ll be when he comes out the other side.
All Bayside books can be read as standalone novels or as part of the series:

My Review of Bayside Desires by Melissa Foster
The first book in the Bayside Summers Series is flirty, fun, sexy, and romantic. Melissa Foster gives a sassy heroine and a swoon-worthy hero brought together by fate in Bayside Desires.
There truly is only a bit of angst in this read and that’s just what I needed to get out of my book funk. Desiree is a great female lead to Rick’s hard, but fun-loving hero exterior. I really think this new series of stand-alones is going to be another must-read set of books. Melissa Foster has another winner on her hands here with the lighthearted banter and budding romance between Desiree and Rick.
Sometimes Cosmos knows what we need even when we aren’t so sure and Bayside Desires sets out to prove that. With an entertaining storyline and engaging banter between the characters I couldn’t help but be hooked from the first chapter. I needed to know what was going to happen and if they’d get their happily ever after.
Now, it’s your turn. If you’re looking for a fun way to spend the weekend look no further than this newest addition to the Melissa Foster universe. Sexy hunks and sweet heroines make for a swoon-worthy Summer read. I know I say this a lot, but I have to say it now – Melissa knows her hunky men and she gives us one of her best in Bayside Desires.
