San Juan Island Stories #4 “Swear to You” continues the five-year high school reunion where second chances for first loves means this is the summer everything will change…
Swear to You: a romantic short story (San Juan Island Stories #4)
Seraphina doesn’t even go to her five-year reunion. What’s the point? She knows what they all think of her. The forever girlfriend of San Juan Island’s only punk rocker, she was loud, brash, and dirty. And she definitely liked that. Until the day she met the boy who was her exact opposite. Suddenly, she would have given anything to be single. And quiet. And even a little squeaky clean.
There’s absolutely no need for her to relive the embarrassing almost-confessions, the oblivious yet so-obvious “hints” (which he ignored), or her final, shocking humiliation. In fact, another five years can’t go by fast enough.
And that’s exactly why she’s more than a little concerned when, less than a day after the big event, a heart-breakingly familiar face turns up at her door…
Take the Swear To You poll!
“Swear to You” is the third in a series of new short stories set around the crisp green San Juan Islands in Northwestern Washington. Light and sweet, they are perfect for a quick lunch break so you can return to the rest of your day with a feel-good smile.
The next story coming out is San Juan Islands Stories #5: Promise Me on January15, 2014.

Hello and welcome.
I am a writer.
My favorite reads are beautiful books like The Last Unicorn by Peter S. Beagle and Pigs in Heaven by Barbara Kingsolver, fun books like Crazy for You by Jennifer Crusie and Avalon High by Meg Cabot, and adventurous books like Slave to Sensation by Nalini Singh and Restoree by Anne McCaffrey.
I spend my non-writing time exploring interests in an academic library, hiking around the Pacific Northwest, and waking the neighbors with Rock Band.
