Description
What's a girl to do when her summer lover wants forever?

Haunted by dark memories of her parents' volatile marriage, artist Kay Browning keeps her heart locked behind a free-spirit facade and contents herself with the comfortable affair she has every summer with easygoing photographer Nate Quinn.

The only trouble with her plan? This summer Nate's come to Lake Mohave to claim the lover he can't let go. He's done with the endless traveling and settling for temporary homes and temporary loves. Kay's always been more than just a vacation fling, and now he must convince this woman, who sees love as a course to certain heartbreak, to take that leap of faith and learn how safe love with the right man can be.

Editorial Reviews:
From Butterfly-o-meter Books/L.E. Olteano
I loved the writing and the way the author set up the scenes, both the one on one ones and the awkward moments, the busy scenes and the tranquil ones...Babette James struck that delicate balance, building a beautiful and clear view, all airy and light. If you like contemporary adult romance, then I say you should totally read this.
From The Autumn Review/Autumn
Nate is a great hero... He's very gentle and loving with Kay, and reading about their arrangement escalating into more was filled with emotion, fun, and some sizzling moments.
From Insightful Minds Reviews/Tabby
I loved not only the love story this book offered, but the dynamic of the side characters as well. I don't think the friends they surrounded themselves with in this book could have been written in any better! I also fell in love with the emotional roller coaster this book took me on.
From Urban Girl Reader/Lynn
Babette gives you a story that will have you wanting to turn the page to see what becomes of Nate and Kay.
From Cocktails and Books/Shannon Patel
Babette James did an excellent job of being able to display, in words, all those little insecurities each of us has that makes us questions some of the biggest decisions of our lives.
From Smitten With Reading/Christi Snow
This book delves deeper than a normal romance novel usually does and I think the reason for that is the wonderful complexity of the heroine in this book, Kay.
From Romance Writer Reviews/Wanda
Sweet and sexy, it will have you wiping tears from your eyes. A beautiful love story, that will take you on may high and lows. You will fall in love with all the characters and feel like you are right there with them.
From RT Book Reviews/Susan Mobley
Though very sensual, this is still a sweet romance.
From The Romance Reviews/CozyReader
Top Pick - The dialogue of CLEAR AS DAY was fluid and perfect. It had the perfect amount of passion that sizzled every time Kay and Nate got together. If you want romance with all the emotions--whether good, bad or ugly--with some humor, this book is for you.
Excerpt:
“Kay!” That male voice was not her imagination.

“Oh, shit!” She twisted and dropped into the water, sinking neck-deep.

Mother always said, among other things, that a lady never goes skinny-dipping and must always wear a proper hat. Kay was only half skinny-dipping, but she fervently wished she’d worn something a bit more substantial than a baseball cap and the bottom half of the quintessential teeny-weenie yellow polka-dot bikini.

Shit, oh, shit, oh, shit. She so hated when Mother was right.

She wiped water from her face, sucked in a breath against her pounding heart, and peeked around.

Nate. She must be sun-dazed. Nate? With a beard? Hair curling over his ears? No way.

Just because a familiar slouchy fishing hat topped those unruly, sun-bleached blond curls and just because this guy possessed the same deep-water tan and footloose taste in clothes as Nate with his electric blue Hawaiian shirt, bright orange swim trunks, and beat-up deck shoes didn’t mean—

“Hey, babe. Now that I’ve finally caught your attention, how about a hug from my girl?” He opened his arms. “Am I coming in after you or are you coming out?” Only Nate’s voice held that mellow timbre like chocolate for her ears.

“Nate! What…” Giddy delight flushed over Kay, clearing her shock. She dashed from the water and into strong arms, a wonderful hug, and a better kiss that launched her mind into a blissed-out whirl of oh, yes and why? The oh, yes won out until the need to breathe forced them apart.

Nate gave her a long look, his usually easy gray eyes holding a new, simmering heat.

Wow. Whoa.
