Merry Kiss Me is book one of the Kiawah Kisses Series, a collection of steamy small-town romances set in low country South Carolina. Each book follows the journey of four best friends: Symone, Tara, Nicole, and Keisha as they each fall for their own Gullah hometown hero and learn to love again!
A decade after leaving home, culinary magazine editor Symone Farris is heading back to Kiawah Island for the holidays. She’s escaping New York and a failed engagement to reconnect with her grandmother’s storied restaurant and speakeasy, The Haint. But before she can say “Merry Christmas,” she’s fighting her mother’s campaign to sell the beloved establishment to the local real estate developer and love she left behind without notice ten years ago.
Rhue Baines loves three things, Christmas, family, and the Lowcountry sea islands he calls home. He understands the needs of his island community because he’s never left. When his ex, Symone blows back into town demanding he stop the planned redevelopment of her family’s land, he’s determined to get his way.
As Christmas approaches they both begin to remember what made them fall in love all those years ago. But when the past finally catches up with them, can their hearts survive the crash?
"Merry Kiss Me" is an updated re-release of Ms. Lennox's "Memories & Mistletoe," with updated chapters and story lines. It is a steamy holiday romance that introduces readers to the characters in the subsequent books featured in the"Kiawah Kisses," Series!
