Oh, by the way, here’s the back cover blurb:

#1 Romantic Comedy Bestseller on Amazon.com

Readers first met Mark Johnson in Love Handles as Liam’s brilliant but awkward younger brother. In This Time Next Door, Mark the software engineer decides to break away from his computer and get a life, starting with the petite woman who’s moved in next door. But when he meets her large, blond housemate, Rose, he starts to dream… bigger.

Twenty-six-year-old Rose Devlin may shop in the plus-size department, but she’s never had a problem attracting men—with disastrous consequences. Recovering from her latest mistake, Rose has sworn off casual flings and moved to California to grow up, help her best friend, and make something of herself.

When Rose asks the cute-but-geeky Mark to help her land a job in high tech, she never expects to unearth his quiet strength, stunning accomplishments—and hidden talents. With a secret in her own past, Rose tries to keep her distance, but she finds that nerdy Mark isn’t so nerdy when the lights go out. And that maybe, just maybe, she’s not too grown up to risk one more disaster…

The world of fitness apparel isn’t ready for Beverly Lewis. She hates the gym, is nice to everybody, and shops at Ross Dress for Less. When she’s not teaching preschool, she’s wearing yoga pants . . . to nap in. So when she inherits her estranged grandfather’s fitnesswear company in San Francisco, nobody expects her to keep it. Fite Fitness needs a heartless suit to save it from bankruptcy, not a thirty-year-old woman who cries when her students leave for kindergarten.

Someone like Liam Johnson. A former Olympic swimmer, Liam is Fite’s executive vice president. Unlike Bev, he’s devoted his life to Fite’s success. Managing one little preschool teacher–and his attraction to her–shouldn’t be an issue. Right?

But Bev’s tired of being underpaid and underrated, and refuses to step aside as an obedient figurehead. To everyone’s shock and horror, she moves up to San Francisco, sets up an office, and dives into the business. Nothing–not mockery, not exercise, not sabotage, not a disastrously hot night with her aggravating VP–is going to scare her away.

As Liam realizes she’s tougher than she looks, he discovers that losing Fite might not be nearly as bad as losing her . . .

A story about the pursuit of love, happiness, and the perfect yoga pants, Love Handles will speak to anyone who’s ever had to face what scares her most.

Get DIVING IN for 99c for a Very Limited Time

Diving In

Accidental sale, get it while you can! Diving In is now only 99 cents–for a few days only. It started as a complete accident–and then Pixel of Ink, a website that emails its subscribers hot ebook deals, featured me (unbeknownst to me),  just as the prices were going back up to $3.99.

I’ve put it back on sale for a few days (through Sunday 8/3/14). Spread the word–99 cents for my latest and greatest. This is a stand-alone story that has cameos from the first book in that “series” (although I never intended it to be one orignally), The Supermodel’s Best Friend (which is FREE for another few weeks.)

Here’s one of my favorite reviews from Amazon (from a reader I swear I neither know nor paid cash to, with the initials CDS):

“I laughed, and then laughed some more…and swooned; there was definitely some swooning going on.

‘Diving In’ is probably the most enjoyable ‘chick lit’ I’ve read in a while. The story has just enough drama, swoon-worthy scenes, relationship angst, beautiful scenery, and did I mention funny situations. Really, the main character has so many issues, but she’s determined to deal with all of them, especially one pesky one from her past.

Also, the sex scenes were written tastefully and the romance was believable, two important factors in a story for me.

I’ll definitely read more from Gretchen Galway”

And here’s the back-of-the-cover blurb:

For schoolteacher Nicki Fitch, a summer in Hawaii is the perfect opportunity to overcome a lifetime of phobias and heartbreak. But when she gets to Maui, she discovers the guy who broke her heart in college is living in her paradise. How can she tackle her fears when the biggest one of all is walking around shirtless – and refuses to leave her alone?

About to turn thirty, Ansel has never wasted his life of privilege – if only his father saw it that way. When Dad cuts him off financially, Ansel moves into his family’s vacation home to make his own fortune in real estate. The last thing he needs is his sister’s leggy, beautiful friend distracting him. Unfortunately, he’s had little practice resisting temptation…

As the days and nights unfold along the luxurious Maui shores, Nicki and Ansel find themselves sharing more and more… and more. But will either one of them have the courage to bring what they find together home with them when the summer’s over?

Get it while you can! The regular price is $3.99.  Happy reading!
