A Summer Memory
By R.C. Ryan
Every summer of my childhood, my family traveled to a little island in Canada where my grandmother lived. One of my aunts owned a rustic cabin in the woods on the banks of a clear sparkling lake. I'm sure it would seem primitive to some, but I loved it. From the log cabin dormitory where my sisters and I slept, to the isolation, it was a place set apart from the world. Not another soul around for miles.
I remember waking at dawn to mice and chipmunks chasing across the walls and ceiling. I can still see us slipping into our bathing suits and diving into the icy waters, my mother waiting on shore with big beach towels and breakfast over the campfire. We spent hours in the water, or on rafts, riding the current. We could ride our bikes for miles on dirt trails. At night for entertainment, with no TV or movies, we helped ourselves to books from the box my mother always packed. (I remember reading Lonesome Dove and True Grit.) For a girl who couldn't get enough of reading, it was pure heaven.
Just writing this has me smiling. Such happy memories.

About the book:
Ben Monroe was the ultimate bad boy – and everyone in Haller Creek knew it. But now as a sheriff’s deputy, Ben spends his time breaking up bar fights rather than starting them, and staying away from trouble…until Becca Henderson comes back into town. She’s just as beautiful as Ben remembers – and just as far out of his reach.
Coming home is exactly what Becca Henderson needed. A place of her own, a successful new business, and a chance to reconnect with the sexy cowboy she had a crush on in school. Ben has always blazed his own path and never let anyone stand in his way. It excites-and scares-her. But when an unexpected threat surfaces, Becca will see just how far Ben will go to protect the woman he loves-and fight for their chance at forever.
