Hands down one of the most romantic places on earth is a rocky coastal shore or
the never-ending line of a sandy beach with white-capped ocean waves as far as
the eye can see. Add in a sexy as sin hero, working to win over the woman of his
dreams, and you have the makings of a happy ever after that will stick with you
long after…well…the after.
Not that you need convincing, but just in case you haven't pondered it, here are
my 5 top reasons for dallying in a seaside romance!
The call of seagulls. The song of these birds has always been an iconic
coastal melody for me. It is hard to pinpoint exactly what it is about the
sound, but their call leaves me feeling renewed, content, and full of wonder. A
feeling of hope and curiosity about what is around the next bend, a feeling that
each new day will be filled once again with beauty. I know, I know…it sounds a
bit hopelessly romantic, but these are my 5 top reasons. So hopelessly
romantic is what you get.
Romantic walks along the rocky cliffs. I would say midnight walks…like you
might think on a beach, but if there's a fifty-foot drop, I'm thinking plenty of
light is a necessity. Besides, when your sight is already blinded by the hearts
floating about your head, you don't need anything else blinding the way. But
there is nothing like walking hand-in-hand with your gorgeous lover, breathing
in the ocean breeze and listening to the rhythmic crashing of the waves against
the shore below. You can almost forget that anything else matters outside the
love of the two of you.
A seaside storm...OMG. Think about this for a second, now I'm not thinking
hurricane force winds here, I'm thinking strong winds, a heavy rain, lightning
flashes and thunder crashes, and all the while you and your lover are entwined
in front of the fireplace, sipping your drinks, sweetly reminiscing about the
past or conspiratorially planning for the future. The linger of his hand here,
the whisper-caress of his lips there, enveloped by the passionate sounds of
mother nature as your background music, seducing the both of you with her love
A big sexy New England-grown hero. Think Paul Bunyan with a lobster in his
hand. Let's face it, there is something dam sexy about a big outdoorsman. You
find out he's sure-footed on the water and that sex appeal sky rockets. Clever
hands and a clever mind trained to deal with the challenges of the ocean. I
don't know about you, but the sheets of my bed flip back in welcome all on their
own for a guy like that.
And my #1 reason for a seaside romance…*drum roll, please*
Sex in a lighthouse, overlooking an ocean...
You and your lover, naked and faced with a full ocean view. The raging waves
below, battering at the foundation of the lighthouse as your heart does against
your chest in anticipation. You can feel the vibrations in the lamp-room railing
as you hold with both hands, your lover wrapped holding you from behind, wrapped
around you. The Sun or the moon on your face, the breeze cooling your hot,
sensitive skin. There is something incredibly powerful when Nature's passionate
expressions combine with your own. Oooooooooh!
On the rocky, atmospheric coast of Cape Van Buren, Maine…

change people’s minds. Except escaping his playboy image is harder than he
imagines, especially when he’s paired with the sexy but still grieving event
planner—who is in desperate need of a happy memory of her own. But one laugh
leads to a kiss, and before he knows it, he realizes he’s broken his number one
rule. Now the biggest risk of all isn’t losing out on the attorney seat, it’s
Can two hearts terrified of love brave the waves or will fear keep them from
reaching the shores of happy ever after?

I love imagining the locations... the scenic areas one describes in their stories. (Colleen Conklin 1:14pm August 30)
Definitely getting your point. I live in Maine near the ocean so I have gotten to learn things like how sneaky sand can be. I would personally prefer a nice cabin near a lake preferably a lake that has been cleared of soggy bottoms. Lol (Candy Voisine 11:46pm August 30)
