Loving Grace | Spotlight & Excerpt

Welcome to the Loving Grace blog blitz and giveaway, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!


Grace Summer lands herself in a melon load of trouble when she becomes torn between the boy of her dreams and the boy almost next door.

As the newly crowned Watermelon Queen, she is thrust into the spotlight, meets the dreamy Warren Hartley, and continues trying to get over an accident that rocked her world. Mix in working with Beau Baron who Grace happens to fight with just about as much as breathing and the metaphorical sparks fly.

Like most things in life, Grace must learn to take the good with the bad. While the good is the handsome and fun Warren Hartley, the bad is Beau Baron—or at least being around his annoying and rude self way more than she would like. For Beau, Grace is nothing more than aggravating and an irritating reminder from the night of the accident.

Tensions soar as Grace and Beau fight to love themselves and maybe, just maybe, each other.

THE CONCIERGE TAKES ONE LOOK at all of our bags and signals for another bellhop. Mrs. Baron does not travel light. To be fair, we are here for three days, and there are many events taking place that will require clothing changes—or so I’ve been told. My suitcase is stuffed so full, it’s bulging around the zipper. I cross my fingers, hoping it won’t spring open as the bellhop maneuvers it onto the cart. And while this weekend is about me “garnering attention” (Mrs. Baron’s words, not mine), I don’t think my clothes flying out of my suitcase in the entrance is the type of attention she’s hoping for.

“Grace, you come with me and John to get you checked in. Bennett and Beau, you two follow the bellhop up to our rooms,” Mrs. Baron says.

“Good luck, Grace,” Bennett says before he and Beau head toward the elevator.

“Thanks.” I stand there, watching them walk away.
