After an unforeseen and painful breakup, Cat joins her parents on their annual trip to Tuscany to recover. She has not much time for brooding over her unfaithful ex-girlfriend and the perfectly planned tour around the Greek Islands she missed as an unexpected summer romance blossoms.
I chuckle and think life could be worse than being stuck with a gorgeous woman, in a convertible on an Italian country road, on the way to a winery. Perhaps it’s even better than Lesbos.

Each book from Harper Bliss is better then the last. Harper tells short stories that have it all. Love, sex, a plot and belivable characters.

Cat and Rose are hot together. Love the forbidden aspect of the relationship.

A great read, I would suggest for any fan of F/F.

Summer Heat is a lesbian erotic romance short story by Harper Bliss. It is a very short story, so I don't want to say too much about it and give the whole thing away. The main character, Cat, is dumped by her girlfriend, and as a result, ends up going away on holiday with her parents. She doesn't particularly want to be there, but figures it's better than being home alone. Soon after arrival in beautiful Tuscany, however, it's not just the sunshine that's raising her temperature.

This is a very s
This was a fun but forgettable read, perfect for the beach or bedtime. Unfortunately, most of this book felt like it was just going through the motions. The characters' appearances weren't described at all until about a third of the way through. I didn't even know for sure there was a mutual attraction between the leads of a romance novel until nearly halfway through the book! All in all, it's decent for the price of free, but I'd recommend looking elsewhere for your girl-on-girl kicks.

Book Synopsis: Summer Heat tells the story of Cat, who, after being dumped by her girlfriend right before their holiday, decides to join her parents on their annual trip to Tuscany.

What a fabulous read!!!!

Great character development - Cat and Rose are so endearing and I loved the interaction between the two. I became so engaged in the whole build-up

F/F erotica

This is a super short erotic fantasy following a recently dumped 31 year old lead who ends up vacationing with her parents in Tuscany. They are staying at the home of a 48 year old family friend (Rose). Despite losing her partner, Cat quickly perks up at the attentions of the older Rose and is distracted by visions of Rose in her bikini. It is written in first person from Cat's point of view. Cat is a lesbian and Rose is supposedly straight... or was. Eventually they find tim

Love with a Cougar.

Having been dumped by her girlfriend, Cat decides to go on holiday with her parents. While in Italy they stay with the widow of her father’s friend. Rose discretely flirts with Cat although Cat doesn’t understand why. She has, after all, been friends with her parents since Cat was a child. She is after all ‘off limits’…. Right?

I’ve said it time and again, “Wow, Ms. Bliss can write”. This is a definite scorcher with a cougar twist so I’m out of the world happy with it. Rose i

My very first Harper bliss story was wetter and I didn't enjoy it, I thought it was to short with not enough story and the story that was there was unbelievable. Since then I found that most of her stories are not like that, this one especially since the chance to jump right into sex was passed up because of the main characters feelings over recently being dumped. The story was equally romantic as it was erotic which is uncommon in a short story like this one. Five stars.

This was another wonderful story by Harper Bliss. I'm not sure which view point I enjoyed more. They were both excellent. I think it is really cool to be able to read it from both perspectives. Well done! I would love to know how it goes back in London.

Cat is gorgeous, seriously what's not to love??? The build up to there relationship is a beautiful one. Soft and sensual yet extremely hot! Such a well written piece that I wish was lengthened into a full novel.
