Swoon Romance

Summary from Goodreads:

Disappointment has

been on speed dial in Ellen Grayson's life lately. Her dad's dead, her mom is

numbing the grief with drugs and alcohol, and her so-called friends are slowly

abandoning her. Trusting a popular teacher with her troubles should have been safe,

shouldn't have led to an unwelcome seduction attempt, shouldn't have sent her

running to the girls' bathroom for the final moments of her Junior year. Lesson

learned. Best to keep all the sordid details of her life to herself.




Enter Rex Jacobi, a cocky teen recently transplanted from New York and fellow

summer camp employee. Though his quick wit and confidence draws her in, she's

not letting him get too close, not til she's sure she can trust him. By the

time Rex's charming persistence wears down her resistance, it's too late. He's

put Ellen on the perma-pal shelf and shifted his romantic attentions to her

arch-rival. Even worse, the teacher who tried to seduce her is still

misbehaving with impunity.


With her ability to trust as shaky as a chastity vow on prom night, Ellen must

decide if she has enough remaining courage to speak up about her teacher and

risk retribution, to tell Rex how she feels and risk heartbreak, or hold all

her secrets inside, the only safe place she knows.


About the Author

Iris St. Clair is the pen name for a long-suffering cubicle worker by

day, a Walter Mitty-like dreamer by night. (Her alter ego Tatiana Ivanadance

also choreographs gravity-defying routines in those fantasies, but that's

another bio.)

No matter what genre she writes, she prefers witty, insecure heroines and

kind, persistent heroes able to break through to the gooey heart inside.

In high school she was voted most likely to win at Monopoly and Clue, but

least likely to throw a ball anywhere near a target. Thank goodness writing

requires less hand-eye coordination, punctuation errors notwithstanding.


Iris believes in the two-year "fish or cut bait" dating rule

and has a 20+ year marriage and two teenaged sons as proof of concept. She

lives, writes, dreams and dances in the rainy Portland, OR area.
