Jennifer Watts is this week’s newsletter sponsor in celebration of her latest release, Aloha in Love!!
For those that crave book about starting over or visiting a whole different part of the country (or another country altogether) this might just satisfy your fancy! Who doesn’t dream of starting over in paradise? And I LOVE this premise!!! Plus, it’s got a huge, brooding, grumpy (but hot!!) landlord.
P.S. Fun fact number (see the list below) one will make envisioning this hero SO easy (and OMG YES PLEASE!!!) 😉
“…When twenty-seven year old Real Estate broker, Ashley Walsh, learns that her husband’s business trips aren’t strictly for business she uproots her life and buys a one-way ticket to Hawaii.
And what better place to start over than a sleepy little surf town on Maui’s North Shore? Life in Paia moves at a different pace and surrounded by nothing but blue skies and crystal clear water Ashley receives a warm Aloha welcome from all of the locals.
At least from all but one of them.
One kama’aina in particular who seems to have no interest in bringing Ashley into the fold is her bossy and brooding landlord, Kane Keo. At six-foot-five inches of solid muscle, Kane has a temper almost as dangerous as the rumors that swirl around him. He won’t let Ashley close but he won’t let her out of his sight either…”
Oooomph!! Wanna know more?
5 fun facts about Aloha in Love
1.) The character of Kane Keo was inspired by actor Jason Momoa.
2.) Aloha in Love takes place in Paia, a Hawaiian plantation village on the North Shore of Maui, which is the last stop on the famous ‘Road to Hana’.
3.) Ashley is used to manscaping and manicures with her former husband – Kane Keo is board shorts and bare feet – he’s wild and unruly and unlike anything she’s used to.
4.) You’ll find some Pidgin Hawaiian English throughout the book, also known as Hawaiian Creole English. It language originated on sugarcane plantations as a form of communication between English and non-English speakers and in Hawaiian is called “ʻōlelo paʻi ʻai”, which literally means “pounding-taro language”.
5.) Sexual tension brews on their day long hike into the Haleakala Crater, a shield volcano 10,000 feet above the Pacific Ocean. It’s a spiritually significant place where they say the Demi-God Maui captured the sun to help make the days longer.
