Blurb from A Place with Briar:

Briar thinks that the latest guest booked in the bayview suite of her family’s bed-and-breakfast is just another summer guest, no matter how hot and single he might be; but Cole Savitt comes to Hanna Inn for ulterior motives and the last thing he needs or expects is to fall in love with the innkeeper.

Excerpt from A Place with Briar: 

“There’s something you need to know….”

Cole’s lips curved as he turned back to the bike. “I know.”
“You do?” Briar asked, sounding astounded.

“You’ve never ridden a bike before.”
“Is it that obvious?” she asked, rubbing her palms on her jeans.

“A little,” he said wryly. “Just lean with me into the turns. And hold on.”

Hi Amber,
Great blurb and excerpt. My husband and I love to ride. He took a friend of mine for a ride, and he said he'd never take her again because she wiggled too much. lol
