A huge thank you to Pepper for hosting me and Seaside Kisses on her blog! I’m excited to be here, and a part of the scavenger hunt!
My name is Stacy Claflin, and I’m a multi-genre USA Today bestselling author. My Hunters series is Sweet Romance. It follows the Hunter family, five brothers in California and their cousins in Oregon.
In Seaside Kisses, we meet Rafael Hunter and Amara Fowler, both lifelong residents of the small seaside town Kittle Falls. Rafael would rather not be there, but life has left him no other choice. His clothing business in LA failed, so he’s forced to return home.
Amara has never left, and now she and her twin brother share responsibility running their parents’ candy shop. She also never forgot about her high school crush – Rafael. When he returns home, she can’t believe it. And even more shocking, he seems to have taken notice in her!
Seaside Kisses excerpt
Being next to Rafael Hunter reminded Amara of all the times she’d shared a desk with him in school. But even then, they hadn’t been this close. She could smell his cologne and their sides touched.
He didn’t seem at all bothered by it—not that she was bothered by his touch. After the spot was cleaned, he moved over and dipped the rag into the bucket. “Let’s see if I can do this next one on my own.”
“I have faith in you,” she teased.
Rafael gave her a funny look. It appeared to be a mixture of embarrassment and determination. “Thanks.” He scrubbed, removing the egg faster than even she had.
“See?” Amara asked. “I told you. It just takes some muscle.”
Rafael’s lips curved upward and he flexed his muscles, making them bulge even more through his silk shirt.
Amara enjoyed the sight for a moment and then reached back into the bucket and found another rag. “Is that a challenge?” she teased. She squeezed out the excess water and then rubbed a spot on the window.
“Hey!” Rafael laughed and attacked another spot.
They cleaned furiously, laughing the whole time. Just before they were done, Amara splashed some suds on Rafael’s face, careful to avoid his nice shirt.
“Oh, yeah?” he asked, his eyes gleaming. He scooped up a handful of bubbles and held them up, his eyes narrowing but his mouth grinning handsomely.
Amara’s mouth dropped open. She squealed and ducked just Rafael threw the suds. They splashed onto the door behind her. Amara glanced back and laughed. She turned, and just as she made eye contact with Rafael a big glob of foam splashed onto her whole face.
She froze, surprised.
“Oh, no,” Rafael said. “I’m so sorry.” But he was laughing. It was a beautiful sound.
Amara laughed, too. “It’s okay.” She wiped some of the bubbles off, flinging them onto the ground. Luckily none had gotten into her eyes, or that would have been trouble for her contacts.
“Let me help you with that.” Rafael stepped closer and wiped more of the suds from her eyes to her jawline. His hands lingered near her cheeks, almost cupping her face.
Amara’s breath caught and they stared into each other’s eyes. Swallowing, she reached up and wiped some soap from his stubble.
Neither spoke, and Amara’s heart pounded so loudly she thought it would explode out of her chest.
Rafael leaned closer—so close she could smell mint on his breath. Her eyes widened, her skin on fire. He paused, still staring into her eyes.
