His heart is unavailable.

Luckily, her interest lies in the rest of him…

Though she was just a girl when they first met, Caroline Tolbertson’s infatuation with David Cameron remains undimmed.

Now fate has brought the handsome Scotsman back to Brighton for what promises to be an unforgettable summer. Soon, Caroline will have to choose a husband, but for now she is free to indulge her curiosity in things of a passionate nature.

That is, if David will agree to teach her.

Past mistakes have convinced David he’ll make a terrible husband, though he’ll gladly help the unconventional Caroline find a suitor. Unfortunately, she has something more scandalous in mind.  As the contenders for her hand begin to line up, her future seems assured…provided David can do the honorable thing and let them have her.

When a spirited young woman is determined to break Society’s rules, all a gentleman can do is lend a hand…or more.

What Reviewers are saying:

RT Book Reviews, Four and a half stars: It’s refreshing when an author sweeps readers away from the ballrooms of London…this is definitely a delight, with many touching moments and plenty of sexual tension.

Smart Bitches Trashy Books: “A” Review, This is the sort of book I want to take on vacation to the Caribbean with me. I really enjoyed everything about this book, the characters, the setting, the conflict, the humor… I recommend Summer is for Lovers as a break from the ballrooms of London scene in historicals, and as a way of reliving the best parts of summer vacation.

All About Romance: If there’s such a thing as the perfect beach read, it’s Summer is for Lovers…strongly recommend it as one of the most engaging historicals I’ve read in a long time.

reviewertoppick2Night Owls Reviews, 4.5 stars Top Pick: A surprise from start to finish…the love story is uniquely premised and develops at a slow, satisfying burn that still manages to be full of passion, humor, and endearing foibles…my favorite historical romance heroine in a very long time.

USA Today Book Reviews: Bright, breezy and smart, a divinely uncommon love story in a unique seaside setting. In this beautifully written follow-on to What Happens in Scotland, McQuiston eschews the usual haunts of the Victorian London ton for the beaches of Brighton, and the result is invigorating.

Love Saves the World BlogSpotSummer is for Lovers raises the emotional bar up a notch: like the waves, this story will surge and swell with David and Caroline’s tentative explorations, will roll and crash with their heartache and confrontation and will leave you breathless and excited when things finally fall into place for them.  The author continues to blaze her own trail in the world of romance with her very unique perspective and stories.  This one is definitely a keeper.

Between the Pages: I was so swept up…that it didn’t even take an effort to stay up and finish it, because it was so good I couldn’t fathom going to sleep.

Crystal Blogs Books: I adored and loved Summer is for Lovers from the first page until the very end of the epilogue. There wasn’t a moment I didn’t enjoy and there wasn’t a conversation between David and Caroline that I didn’t want to re-read.

Bookishly Attentive: This is an extremely well-written, absolutely lovely tale of two hearts who fight a strong battle against the tide to be together. Filled with secondary characters (one of whom gets her own sequel) worthy of the main story, Summer is for Lovers is an historical romance that gets a highly recommend from me. Excellent!!

Forever Book Lover: Refreshing new author – proving that her debut book, What Happens in Scotland, was just a launching pad, the author has once again created a spectacular read!

The Season for Romance: As to pacing and story setup, McQuiston is spot on. From the heroine coming of age and learning to embrace her  own beauty to the hero who’s still paying for past mistakes, Summer for Lovers is a perfect way to  fall out of the season.
