Title: Summer of Sundaes
Author: Amey Zeigler
Genre: Sweet New Adult Romance
After dropping out a semester short of college graduation, Bailey Madison inherits the management of her family's struggling ice cream shop in Seward, Alaska. When Kingsley Tours needs her prime location to expand their business into the Last Frontier, Bailey must use her wits and creative ice cream recipes to save her shop.
Usually carefree and self-centered Brahms Kingsley must prove to his father he can buckle down and lead Kingsley Tours as the company grows. But how can he close Bailey's shop when she still holds a place in his heart?
Brahms must choose between pleasing his father and earning the love of a woman he never forgot.
Her stomach flipped. Energy trilled through her.
With hands inside his pockets, he held his jacket together against the wind. “Listen, I want to apologize. I didn’t know your shop was involved in this deal. I want to be friends again. What can I do to make it right?”
But even his attractive appearance couldn’t soften her. She thrust out her chin and crossed her arms. “You can find another location to rent.”
His face pinched. “I can’t. Jack already signed the papers. Once we get the go-ahead from the City Council, the deal’s done.”
Ache burned in her chest. “Then nothing you’ll do can make it right.” She climbed the hill overlooking the entrance to the bay. The closer she got to her store, the more the wind died. The sun peeked from the milky clouds and warmed the town.
Brahms jogged next to her. “Bailey, I don’t want to fight you.”
She faced him and placed her hands on her hips. “You don't know what you're taking from me. My family has run this shop for four generations. Then you come in with your big business. You throw around your money and get what you want.”
“I have a secret for you.” He stepped into her space.
His eyes blazed. Bailey gulped. He was too near. Being close to him weakened her.
A partial grin slipped over his lips. “I always get what I want.” He stood straighter. “Money has nothing to do with it. And I want to be friends.”
His breath tickled her forehead. The familiar scent of his spicy cologne wafted between them. Attraction tugged at her.
