Welcome to our virtual tour stop on Angel Lawson's Vigilant Blog Tour brought to you by Book Monster Promotions.
I love summer. I always have. I have strong memories of my summers as a child and teen. Swimming and playing all day. Catching lightening bugs at night. Summer has always represented a sort of opportunity to me, it’s such a vivid time of year with such strong imagery.
I’m a huge fan of the “Summer Romance.” In real life and in fiction. I think of summer and I’m immediately consumed by ideas of warmth and heat. Love and lust. The extended days, lack of structure and basic rule of bedtime, curfew and regular meals all seem to disappear. I especially love the pool and mine is a hot mess. Hunky college-aged life guard roam the deck shirtless and tan. The flirtations between teens over the diving board and the rowdy volleyball games made for fun. I love all the skin and the smell of sunscreen, chlorine and sweat. The horrible tattoos, the ill-fitting bikini’s, never-ending gossip and the cougars on the prowl.
Summer fun isn’t limited to the swimming pool. I also love the beach, with its noisy waves and bright colors. Surfers wearing skin tight wet-suits or low riding trunks. Skim boarders performing tricks. The intense heat along with the sticky sea water drying on crispy skin…everything about summer assaults the senses. Images of Grease conjure in my mind, when Sandy met Danny and everything was right before everything went terribly wrong and then they ended up with their HEA in a flying car and slutty pants. By the way, the HEA? Happened in the summer.
See? Summer is perfect.
This is the time of year when boys meet girls and women attract men. Sundresses and shorts and flip-flops and T-shirts all come out of the closet. Picnics and cook-outs give people the opportunity to meet, allowing for new relationships.
I’ve written several books about summer and the opportunities that arise this time of year. Last year during a trip to the beach I was struck and inspired to write my first New Adult story, Serial Summer, based a little bit on family history and a lot about location, and even more about a fictional summer romance combining all of those. I’ve got another slightly dirty novella written under a different penname that amps up summer fantasies to another level (message me and I’ll direct you to my super-secret penname). I’m currently finishing up a new one, another New Adult that allows me to wallow in college-year daydreams of first loves, second chances and getting things right.
What are your favorite summer reads? Pass them along because I’d love something new. In the meantime I’ll be over here, hiding behind my big glasses absorbing summer.

Publishing Date: 4/23/13
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Ari Grant spends her days helping the troubled youth of Glory City, and her nights trying to feel something other than the cold numbness that has settled in her bones. For years, she satisfies this urge with trips to the tattoo parlor or late night clubbing, but everything changes when she becomes a victim of an armed robbery.
She manages to escape notice from the gunman, a former client, but only because she’s saved by Glory City’s own Vigilante. A hooded man who has impeccable timing when it comes to those in need.
It seems Ari isn’t the only one trying to save lost souls or looking for a life outside their job. She’s caught the attention of Nick Sanders, a handsome attorney at juvenile court. Solid and steady, he seems the perfect fit, but Ari has developed an obsession with Davis, the mysterious and sexy director of a local fight club that rehabilitates delinquent boys.
Each of these men fight for the less fortunate, but not everyone has altruistic motives. When Ari’s female clients begin to disappear, she can’t figure out who to trust. Soon enough it becomes obvious that while Ari watches over the kids of Glory City, someone else has taken to watching over her.
