Get ready to dive into summer with a unique cast of characters. Set in the late 1970s in the foothills of South Carolina, Kiss Me Hard Before You Go brings readers face-to-face with life’s ups and downs and the experience of falling in love for the first time. This romantic tale is about the power of love, family and acceptance.

In Kiss Me Hard Before You Go, Gray Barnes and his eighteen-year-old daughter, Evie, open up their farm in the foothills of South Carolina to Kip Kierkin’s Carnival of Wonder every summer. The carnival attracts hordes of locals and out-of-towners, and it brings in the extra cash that Gray and his daughter need to keep the family estate running. Evie decided long ago that she wants nothing to do with the carnival or the farm that her dad so desperately works to keep afloat. She doesn’t understand her father’s appreciation for the land or the work that it takes to maintain it, but that’s all about to change when she meets Finch Mills. Finch is a lifer – a carny since birth. He’s spent all of his twenty-two years on the circuit and longs for a different path. He’s never paid much attention to Evie, not until this eventful summer of 1978.
