A sweet old-fashioned girl

isn’t what Grant Carrington is looking for. A man who lives for speed and danger, he’s only slowed down because he’s been forced to by an injury. Carrie Harlow isn’t his type, but he needs her in order to heal. She knows she’s playing with fire, but she feels she can help him and she goes for it—even though she knows she’s endangering her own heart as she fixes his.

Recipe for Carrie's Chicken Picatta included.

EXCERPT:

His very arrogance took her breath away. She almost laughed.

“Do you always get what you want?” she prodded, gazing up from beneath her dark lashes.

He touched her chin with one lone finger. “Always,” he said, and it was as much a warning as apromise.

From then on they played like children. She put an ice cube down the back of his swimsuit and hethrew her into the pool once he’d caught her, then dived in to chase her through the blue water. It took them twice as long as usual to complete the program, and when it was over, Carrie packed up toleave.

“Don’t go,” he said, dripping with water from the pool.

She smiled, watching the sun catch the drops of water on his brown skin. “I should check in at theoffice,” she told him. “Besides, I don’t have anything to wear.”

His hand cupped her cheek. “‘Then don’t wear anything,” he said, eyes full of laughter. “Simplesolution.”

She made a face. “Your housekeeper might be a bit surprised to find a naked woman wanderingaround your estate,” she reminded him.

“Not at all,” he said flippantly. “Happens all the time.”

“Does it?” She pretended outrage. “The ever-present Grand Prix groupies? Where do you hide them when I come over?”

He grinned. “I just stuff them into any convenient closet. They get sulky when you stay too long.”

“Then they’ll be happy now.” She slung her bag over her shoulder. “I’m leaving.”

A Little About the Destiny Bay Romances: Sweet Editions
From Author Helen Conrad

"The Destiny Bay Romances take place in the sort of beach town I've always loved--and now I live in one! But writing about beach towns came first and this series is centered on the rich, influential Carrington family living along the California Coast, and in Hawaii. These are good-looking, fast-driving, hard-hitting men and women whose impulses lead them into trouble every time--and inevitably to fall in love.

The original series includes language and love scenes that aren't, for the most part, especially harsh and explicit--but some of my readers from my years writing sweets for Harlequin as Raye Morgan have asked if we couldn't have sweet and clean versions--and I thought--what a good idea! 

These are basically the same stories...but with the conflicts softened a bit, the language cleaned up, and no explicit love scenes. There are still a few adult situations, but they're muted. Consider these the PG versions. 

I hope you enjoy them!"
