Fall in love at Bayside, where sandy beaches, good friends, and true love come together in the sweet small towns of Cape Cod.

BAYSIDE SUMMERS is a series of standalone steamy romance novels featuring alpha male heroes and sexy, empowered women. They're fun, flirty, flawed, deeply emotional, always passionate, and easy to relate to.

"​With her wonderful characters and resonating emotions, Melissa Foster is a must-read author!" -NYT Bestseller Julie Kenner​

"Melissa Foster is synonymous with sexy, swoony, heartfelt romance!" -NYT Bestseller Lauren Blakely​

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.

All Bayside books can be read as standalone novels or as part of the series:

Desiree Cleary has given me incentive to check out Wellfleet Massachusetts.  I’ve lived in this state all my life and have even vacationed on the Cape but not once have I checked out that particular town.  She has a great friend named Emery who keeps things light but tells her the way things are.  I want to be her friend too.  Desiree needs to be able to chill otherwise life may pass her by.

Rick Savage has a very interesting way of meeting women.  He needs to work on it a little.  But he must have something that resonates with Desiree cause they just can’t seem to stay away once that connection is made.  There’s a saying “you just can’t make this stuff up”.  We may not be able to but this author can and this book is proof of that.

Desiree has a sister Violet.  I tried to leave her out of my review so that I could concentrate on Desiree and Rick but the author had other ideas.  She’s got a personality you just can’t ignore and she made me laugh at every opportunity.  At times I got worried that she would overshadow her sister but the author was good in bringing Desiree back into the forefront. 

The author knows just the right moments to get her readers to laugh.  One such scene is when Desiree decides to tell her mother off.  And there were other times where I just couldn’t help myself and ended up busting out a laugh.  Ms. Foster is also good in showing her readers that you don’t need a lot of sex, and I’m not saying that there isn’t some here, to have a lot of heat.  Anticipation and the connection of the main characters works just as well.   This was a great beginning to this new series and I look forward to seeing what Bayside Passions has in store for us.
