Life in the No-Dating Zone
After surviving her parents' relationship drama when her older sister elopes, Claire Gardner vows not to date during high school. Now, three years later, Claire is thrown into new relationship drama—her two best friends have boyfriends. Which means Claire is spending more and more time alone. And she's more than a little peeved.
Enter Gray Langley. His year-long crush on Claire's friend Lindsey has made him desperate enough to ask Claire for help with pursuing Lindsey. Hesitant at first, Claire finally agrees—anything to get rid of Lindsey's current evil boyfriend. But as Claire and Gray plot together, Claire has to fight the sparks of attraction flying everywhere.
Because she can't be with Gray unless she gives up her vow. And how can she handle the pain that'll come from confronting her parents with the reasons for that vow? Claire has to decide . . . unless, of course, Gray decides first.
Patricia B. Tighe is not the writer who's been writing for as long as she can remember. In fact, she didn't start writing fiction until she was almost thirty. But, she's always been a reader. Which, of course, is one of the basic requirements for being a writer. She's read everything from horse novels and spy thrillers to historical romance and fantasy sagas—and lots in between. There's something wondrous about picking up a book and entering a new world with new adventures. And she doesn't plan on stopping any time soon.
When she's not reading, she hangs out with her husband and two old dogs, plus her grown sons whenever she gets the chance. In the fall she spends way too much time yelling at her TV while watching football. She's also addicted to British TV shows. Top Gear, anyone?
Oh, yeah. And she writes. Kissing books. Or at least books that include kissing.
