New Release Spotlight: Laguna Lights by Kaira Rouda

Welcome back to Laguna Beach...
Laura Kinkaid’s glamorous Hollywood life is falling apart. After years of reality television stardom beginning in high school on Laguna Nights, her career and relationship with her long-term boyfriend Scott are fizzling out. Laura decides to go home to Laguna Beach for the weekend to attend a baby shower for her high school friend. That decision – and a car accident – will lead her to a new future, if she’s ready to take a chance at love.

Paul Dorn’s former life in New York City is far behind him and he’s working in a popular Laguna Beach surf shop when fate brings the most beautiful woman he’s ever met into his life. The attraction is instant and he has an overwhelming desire to protect her. While Paul’s retail sales career is a short-term job for market research purposes, his focus on Laura is long-term.

Will Laura allow a handsome stranger to help her create a future unlike her past, or will the bright lights of Hollywood pull her back to LA?

The hostess pushed open the door to the outside deck, and all of a sudden, none of that mattered. The outside deck hugged the ocean shoreline. It was an intimate patio with just a few tables, and Laura spotted Paul sitting at one of them. He was seated at the corner table, shielded from the sun by a light blue umbrella, with a bottle of champagne in a silver bucket sitting on the deck next to him. He waved and flashed her a big smile, and the only thing in the world that Laura cared about was hurrying into his arms.
Paul jumped up and wrapped her in an embrace. Laura felt as if she were melting and on fire, both at the same time. She pushed her sunglasses up on top of her head and turned her eyes to him. Their eyes locked. The look of desire that he was giving her matched her own.
He bent his head and brushed his lips against hers, making her heart thump wildly.
I missed you Laura,he said, keeping his arm wrapped firmly around her waist as he pulled out her chair. Laura almost wished she didnt have to sit down, because that meant shed had to let go of him. She almost wished that they could just stand here, on this gorgeous deck suspended over the ocean, and be together. But they couldnt, she knew, so she dropped into her seat. He pulled his chair over so he was seated right beside her instead of across the table. Their legs touched under the table. The wind caught as she sat down, blowing her hair. Paul reached over and tucked a stray strand behind her ear. His touch was exhilarating.
I missed you, too. It seemed like you wouldnt ever text this morning. I got worried,she said as he poured champagne into her glass.
Why didnt you text me?he asked, his head tilted to the side, his eyes sparkling.
Because you said youd text me,Laura said lifting her glass to his. “Im a good girl. I do as Im told.”
Is that right?” Laura felt Pauls hand on her thigh, and the heat from his hand created a sensation that traveled right up to her core. Always?
