Rising Heat: A contemporary summer romance anthology of short stories




"Dreaming of summer lovin’?

She's been burning the candle at both ends for the last twelve years, trying to make something of her herself, trying to give people something else to say about her.

Porter Ingram prides himself on being a steady man, a good friend, but he's none too steady when he flies off to California because Maggie's collapsed from exhaustion and she doesn't want her sister, Pru, to worry. Not when Pru's about to have a baby any minute. What Maggie doesn't know is that she's more than just a good friend to Porter. It's an open secret he's been wearing on his sleeve fo…
