Amethyst, WI is a small, peaceful town on a pristine lake with an active tourist season in summer. When the air turns chill, the town is transformed into a ghost town with only a handful of lifers who stay. Populated with colorful characters, Amethyst is bursting with mystery, romance, and jealousy. Come and visit a place where anything is possible all-year-round.
What happens when a nationally renowned sex therapist and author begins to abhor every aspect of her successful occupation? She falls in love, of course.
Dr. Melina Rose is sick of discussing, listening to, and writing about sex. She’s spent her life avoiding intimacy in her own personal life. After abandoning everything she’s worked all her life for, she returns to the small, peaceful town of Amethyst, Wisconsin she grew up in only to discover that everything has changed—everything except her crush on her sister’s old boyfriend Scott “Romeo” Romero.

Awards & Honors: 2005 and 2006 CAPA Award nominee FAR Recommended Read Award 5 hearts from Love Romances 4 ½ hearts from The Romance Studio 4 ½ beacons from Lighthouse Literary Reviews 5 flags from EuroReviews 4.5 blue ribbons from Romance Junkies 5 angels from Fallen Angel Reviews 4 ½ books from The Long and Short of It Reviews 4.5 Stars! "After reading about Melina and Scott, I was thrilled to learn that there are more books coming about them and the town of Amethyst. Melina is a superstar in the world of sex. She's sort of a hip and young Dr. Ruth. Yet, when you get past the superstar exterior, you find a confused woman who wanted to help people and she's burned out by the perverts that have become her clients. This is a fast read and really comes together well. Again, I can't wait for the next installment in the Adventures in Amethyst Series." ~Once Upon A Romance Review http://www.onceuponaromance.net 5 Flags! "With a strong helping of...
