In Bayside Desires...
As the co-owner of Bayside Resorts, Rick Savage has a fabulous job working with his best friends and brother, and a thriving business in Washington, DC, which he’ll be returning to at the end of the summer. Spending time with his family is great, but being back on Cape Cod has unearthed painful memories. When sweet, smart, and overly cautious Desiree Cleary moves in next door, Rick is drawn to the sexy preschool teacher, and she just might prove to be the perfect distraction.
Running an art gallery was not in preschool teacher Desiree Cleary’s plans, but after being tricked into coming to her impetuous, unreliable mother’s aid, she’s stuck spending the summer with the badass half sister she barely knows and a misbehaving dog. If that’s not frustrating enough, she can’t escape the sparks igniting with her strikingly handsome and pushy neighbor, Rick, who makes all her warning bells go off.
Passion ignites as Desiree and Rick spend long summer nights sharing heartfelt confessions and steamy kisses. For the first time in years Rick is enjoying life again instead of hiding behind mounds of work miles away from his family. Desiree has touched him in a way that makes him want to slow down. Only slowing down means dealing with his demons, and he isn’t sure who he’ll be when he comes out the other side.

She writes sexy contemporary romance, contemporary women's fiction, romantic suspense, thrillers, and historical fiction - perfect beach reads - with emotionally compelling characters that stay with you long after you turn the last page.
Fantastic start to the new Bayside Series by Melissa Foster. Rick and Desiree captured my heart from the very beginning and as always with these series, kept me interested till the very end. Rick is strong and loving and he knows what he wants, if only he could let go of the hurt from losing his father many years ago. Desiree has been hurt by the one person in the world who should have always protected her, her mother. When they both find themselves back on the Cape, their hearts begin to heal and find love in one another.
You get a touch of Mira, Matt and Hagen in this story. I love the way Ms. Foster weaves all her books together to bring you the old that you love and the new that you'll be loving soon.
Great series starter
Sexy and sweet, funny and heartfelt. Simple, descriptive words for a story that is anything but simple. Rick is a gorgeous, sexy guy on the surface, but as Desiree quickly finds out, he's much more than a pretty face. Sweet and funny, he's that gentleman who every mom wants for their daughter...minus the hot sex, of course! Desiree herself is sweet and serious, and dealing with mommy issues when she meets Rick. But she quickly loosens up and unleashes her hidden vixen.
Featuring a cast of new and old faces, Bayside Desires is all about romance and love but also centers around forgiveness and closure to old hurts, tragic events and misunderstandings. Set in Wellfleet, Massachusetts (in favorite place in the world, Cape Cod), the beach setting is perfect for a summer romance. I can't wait to read more of this new Melissa Foster series!!
Bravo for Bayside Summers series
Rick and Desiree meet in a very unique way. That introduction sets the stage for this hot, funny and heartwarming romance from Melissa Foster. I could not put this book down. It drew me in from the beginning. Melissa Foster has a true talent for making the reader feel they are a participant in the lives of the characters and not just an observer. I can't wait to visit these friends at Bayside again. Great book!
