Sebastian loves women. Some say he's loved more than his share. Seb's fascination with each new female usually fades, in days or weeks. Perennial party girl Michelle has a problem, and that just cannot happen. So, on an exclusive O'ahu beach, Michelle will coerce Seb into solving her problem, and suggest he seduce the troublesome girl on the yellow towel. Michelle will unwittingly lead Seb to the first woman able to hold his attention. Getting the date will take garlic shrimp, assisting a surfing geek, and suffering the lectures by an ex named Lani. Ultimately, the course of true love takes Seb up a hill he'd put behind him.


In this novel, of suspense and romance, boy-meets-girl but his identification of Miss Right just starts his pursuit. As Michelle manipulates and their friends gossip, Sebastian is drawn by a woman he finds too tantalizing to resist, and too difficult to define. Even after he gets a date, the challenges increase, to include the worst Royal dinner ever and an afternoon of rooibos tea. Accomplished columnist and storyteller, Kirby Laney, has crafted a novel of people living lives that could have happened, if only they'd actually existed. This entertaining story of the power of love to overcome even the most obnoxious of circumstances will carry readers into the life of a man on the verge of growing up, if only he can find reason to do so.

About the author

Kirby Lindsay Laney has been crafting stories since infancy. Her imaginary friends had complex back stories and lived transformational lives of intrigue and romance. At age 12, she decided to become a writer when she found her dream of playing piano in a smoke-filled bar thwarted by her inability to play. A former bookstore owner, Kirby still prefers to crawl into fiction whenever she can, even after she finally learned to play the piano. She is grateful to Adrian, her husband, who keeps her fed and occasionally turned towards the sun during her most intense periods of writing. She also credits her grandparents, and mother, who influenced her distinctive storytelling style with their telling, and re-tellings, of family stories. Born and raised in Seattle, Washington, Kirby has lived in Toledo, Ohio; Fredericksburg, Virgina; and Colima, Mexico. She now resides in the bustling community of Chamberlain, South Dakota, in the center of the nation, and on the shores of the Missouri River - where no one ever asks her to surf.
