I love writing about brothers and sisters, and I love writing about the beach. As I was writing this blog, these pairs of siblings from my coast and beach romance collections came to my mind.
- Doctorate student Heidi Wei in Know You More and her only brother, Private Investigator Ming Wei, in Tell You Soon
- Artist Abilene Dupree in Draw You Near, and her paraplegic brother, billionaire Dante Dupree, in Cherish You So
- Photographer Amy Untermeyer in Wish You Joy, and her adopted brother, Chef Isaac Untermeyer, in Call You Home
- Violin collector Brinley Brooks in His Longing Heart, and her widowed brother, businessman Diehl Brooks, in His Morning Kiss
- Treasure Hunter Beatrice Glynn in Once a Hero, and her billionaire brother, Benjamin Glynn, in Once a Spy
