February or Forever - New Release by Juliet Madison. (Book Spotlight and Excerpt)

I recently read Juliet's 'romagic' debut "Fast Forward" and absolutely loved it so was very happy to offer a new release post for the second book in her Tarrin's Bay series, February or Forever.   I haven't started this series yet, but being a small town girl myself, I'm looking forward to it.   Read on for an excerpt and where to buy.

Genre: Contemporary coastal romance, women’s fiction.
Available worldwide from all ebook retailers 1st February.
Published by Escape Publishing.

In this heartwarming coastal romance, Escape bestselling author Juliet Madison asks, what if your favourite celebrity fell in love with you?
Yoga teacher and single mother, Chrissie Burns has a plan: move into the rundown beach house left to her by her deceased aunt, renovate it, sell it, and move on. The scene of a terrible accident years ago, the house needs to get out of Chrissie's hands as soon as possible.
But Tarrin's Bay, where the house stands, has more to offer than bad memories. The town is lovely, the people friendly, and even Chrissie's young son finds friends and begins coming out of his shell. Employed at Serendipity Retreat as a yoga instructor, Chrissie is shocked to be given the role of private teacher to Drew Williams, Australia’s top singer/songwriter for the month.
Relationships between instructors and clients are strictly forbidden, but Drew draws happiness out of Chrissie with his down-to-earth nature and sense of humour. Days of stretching and bending may bring Chrissie unexpected peace and strength, but she knows that this interlude must end, and there's no pose or position to aid her when Drew walks away and leaves her broken-hearted. 

A stronger breeze rose in the air and Chrissie shivered. ‘I should have brought a cardi.’
‘Me too. I mean, not a cardi, a male version of such an item, a...’
Chrissie raised her eyebrows. ‘Lost for words?’
‘I’ve gone blank! What’s that thing, you know, that covers your arms and keeps you warm?’
‘I’m not helping you out, I want to watch you struggle.’ She placed her hands on her hips in amusement.
‘Oh man, this jet lag must have frozen my brain.’ He twirled his finger in the air as though trying to summon the correct word. ‘Jacket! A jacket! Geez, it must be past my bedtime.’
Chrissie laughed.
Drew glanced at her arms as she rubbed them. ‘If I had a jacket, I’d do the gentlemanly thing and wrap it around you.’ His voice was softer now, more genuine.
‘Like they do in the movies, huh?’
He nodded.
‘Oh well, what a shame. I’ll survive.’ Chrissie held her arms close to her body and continued watching the fireworks, when a pair of arms slid around her from behind, superimposing themselves on top of hers and spreading warmth across her skin.
‘Will these do instead?’ Drew asked gently. ‘I’ll be a human jacket.’
A soft smile floated onto Chrissie’s lips. ‘Even better,’ she whispered. ‘I mean, body heat and all that.’
His arms covered hers, pushing more warmth into her skin and sending fireworks of her own off in her belly. The way he held her from behind was so natural, so effortless, so...perfect. They fit together, like a lock and a key, like a piece of timber slotting into the groove in another piece of timber, forming a strong supportive structure. They stood like that, gazing at the explosions that had nothing on the ones going off inside, until a smoky grey blackness hung in the sky.
The display might be over, but whatever was happening between them was not.
