I’d be hard pressed to come up with a better list than this!
Diana Quincy’s Top 10 Reasons to Look Forward to This Summer
#10 FLIP FLOPS
There’s something very liberating about wearing this ultimate summer shoe.
Once your feet come out of hibernation and into public view, neat trim toenails are a must. Plus, the foot massage and general pampering make this summer ritual one of my favorites.
#8 SUMMER VACATION
It’s time to let loose and take a break from your routine, revisiting favorite destinations or exploring new ones with your loved ones.
#7 LONGER DAYS
What’s not to love about a little more daylight? That’s more time to be outside, whether it’s at the beach, pool, swinging in the hammock or at a cookout.
Speaking of cookouts, I love the laidback relaxed vibe that comes with throwing some hamburgers and hotdogs on the grill and inviting the neighbors over.
#5 KIDS ARE OUT OF SCHOOL
Who doesn’t enjoy the welcome break from making school lunches, dragging sleepy kids out of bed in the morning and pushing to get them to the bus stop on time? Plus we get a welcome break from nagging them about their homework and studying for tests.
#4 MY “ME” WEEK
I adore my husband and our two sons but I’m not going to lie. I LOVE the one week each summer when my husband takes the kids to an amusement park while I stay home to write. I savor those few precious days alone.
#3 LAZY SUMMER AFTERNOONS
My favorite way to spend these is on my screened-in porch with a glass of ice tea and a book I can totally get lost in.
#2 STAYING IN WHEN IT’S TOO HOT
And blasting the air conditioner while you watch a marathon of movies on TV.
#1 ENGAGING THE EARL IS RELEASED!
There is nothing like bringing your book baby to market! You’ve obsessed over the sentences and nurtured the story as best you can and now is the time to finally share your story with readers.
Book Title: Engaging the Earl
Author: Diana Quincy
Release Date: June 9, 2014
Genre: Historical Romance
Vivacious Lady Katherine Granville is the toast of the ton, but society’s most eligible miss secretly yearns for her childhood love, an untitled loner who vanished long ago after her father forbade their marriage.
After years abroad, the dark and brooding Edward Stanhope returns to England a changed man. No longer a second son with no prospects, his battlefield strategies have won him an earldom. His return should be a victorious one, but the new Earl of Randolph is battling secret demons that no one can discover. Least of all, Kat.
When the man she can’t forget reappears at her betrothal ball, Kat’s perfectly arranged future is thrown into tumult. Edward remains cold and distant, hoping she’ll marry a man worthy of her. But nothing is settled when Kat sets out to win back her first love. Can the new Earl of Randolph resist the woman he’s loved for so many years?
