Aloha to V.K. Sykes and MEET ME AT THE BEACH

Yes, let's ditch the snow and meet at the beach with V.K. Sykes:

V. K. Sykes is a wife/husband writing team-Vanessa Kelly and Randall Sykes-who write romantic suspense and single title contemporary romance. One of the great things they appreciate about being writers is that they can work anywhere so Vanessa and Randy split their time between Ontario, Canada, in the summer and Florida in the winter. Both locations have shores just as beautiful as the imaginary Seashell Bay.

Kim:  Amelia Island - what is your favorite sight, sound, and smell of coastal Florida?

V.K.: Definitely the ocean. There’s nothing as soul-restoring as walking along the beach, listening to the crashing of the waves and smelling the crisp salt air!

Kim:  What's the hardest element of cowriting a book with someone who you see 24x7?

V.K.: There’s no escaping each other when you have a disagreement about something with the book! Which is probably not a bad thing, since it means we have to deal with the problem rather than ignoring it.

Kim:  If readers were to meet you at the beach, what would they find in your beach bag?

V.K.: Books, of course, and maybe even a mini-iPad. Also, water, snacks (heavy on the chocolate), suntan lotion, hand sanitizer (for after petting all the dogs on the beach), tissues, sunglasses, and an extra ball cap.

When Lily Doyle spots her high school crush Aiden Flynn on the inbound ferry, she knows trouble is about to dock in Seashell Bay. And not just because he's more handsome than ever. If Aiden's in town, the rumors must be true about his family's plan to sell their coastal land to the highest bidder. But Lily will do whatever it takes to convince the hottest guy on the beach to protect their idyllic island home.

Gorgeous Lily Doyle was the only thing Aiden missed after he escaped from his hometown to play pro baseball. Now all Aiden wants is to wrap up the business deal and get back to his life, not relive a past that still haunts him. But as memories rush in about the night of passion he and Lily shared long ago, everything else washes right out to sea-everything except the desire that still burns between them.
