Publisher's Summary

Confident businessman Joel Rhodes sees the small California town of Lavender Shores as nothing more than a business opportunity and a final stepping stone to the position he's been working toward his entire life. It was supposed to be just one night in town to close the deal, and sleeping with one of the local men, no matter how gorgeous, meant nothing more than a few hours of fun.

Andrew Kelly is perfectly content with the life he has in his hometown. So much so that the only thing missing is someone to share it with. Going to bed with a tourist was never meant to be the answer to his dreams, just a beautiful distraction. He could get back to looking for Mr. Right the next day.

Both Andrew's and Joel's worlds are turned upside down when a few hours of pleasure get extended to a couple of days. Even that shouldn't have been a big deal. You can't fall in love in that amount of time. That isn't how it works. However, if destinies collide, a few short days may be all it takes to find your soul mate. Even so, when secrets and motivations get tangled, fate may do nothing more than leave two hearts in pieces.

    "Delightful Romance"

    The story is sweet and delightful. Believable characters and moves at a snappy pace without damaging the storyline. The narrator does an excellent job of bringing the story to life and keeping you engaged. Happily recommend!!

    "Amazing!!"

    This book was great before the audio and with the narration by Kirt Graves it was amazing!! I love that the Lavender Shores people felt more real and I loved every minute of it! Kurt just bring these characters to life and it made me so happy. If you haven't read this book or if you have you really need to get the audio.

    What did you love best about The Palisade?

    Not only did I enjoy the book The Palisade, but Kirt Graves made the character come to life for me.
    The narrator was clear in his speech and really seemed to get into character and this made for very pleasant listening.
    I will definitely be looking out for more Lavender Shores on audio.

    Story
    "Rosalind Abel + Kirt Graves = One wonderful listen"

    Lavender Shores is the most wonderful place on earth. Not just the physical beauty – although it is lovely – but it’s a gay-friendly community. If the extent of the graffiti is pink penises, you know you’ve entered a wonderful place.

    Andrew, who has lived in Lavender Shores his entire life, has no desire to leave. He tried to go away for college, but came back after one semester and has no plans to ever leave again.

    So when his blue eyes settle on mesmerizing green ones across the bar, his heart skips a beat.

    Although he’s attracted, he knows it can’t go anywhere. Because every guy he’s ever been with has left him because they didn’t want to leave the Shores and he couldn’t fathom leaving. His heart has taken one too many knocks, but a one-night stand with a hot stranger? That he can do.

    Is there such a thing as love at first sight?

    Joel might just believe in it because after one night with Andrew and he’s starting to see the possibility of having a relationship. And that’s crazy because his career plan includes taking over the family business in San Francisco. Making his father proud of him is also high on the list of his desires. Lavender Shores is the last place he would ever consider living.

    Yet as Joel become more and more enmeshed in Andrew’s life, and as he gets to know the people of Lavender Shoes, he is beginning to look at his life in a new way. When push comes to shove, though, both men have to be true to who they are, and heartache is inevitable. Andrew’s love for his family and town is heartwarming. Joel’s ambition to advance in his career and earn his father’s respect is just as strong.

    Can love conquer all when one man has to give up what he’s always dreamed of?

    Is love strong enough?

    You’ll just have to ask the Golden Retriever and 2 Dachshunds.

    Kirt Graves is a new narrator to me, but he is perfect for this series. I can’t wait for the next installment!

    "I really enjoyed my time in Lavender Shores!"

    The story was very sweet, the sex was very hot, and I loved all the supporting characters. Andrew's family was hilarious! I look forward to the rest of the series, but I will wait until they are released on audiobook. Kirt Graves did an outstanding job narrating this one. He is quickly becoming one of my Top 5 favorite narrators :)
