Romance Books to Read at the Beach + 5 Safety Tips for Protection from the Sun

               Looking for a summer love? How about a classic romance?

When you hit the beach or the shore bring a book with you. Here are five great classic romance novels available in print or as eBooks. Let them take you away from the world of responsibly and transport you to a place far away from everyday life. 

    Tell me No Lies by Elizabeth Lowell published 1986. Priceless artifacts are smuggled from China into the U.S. An international crisis is brewing and a thief must be caught. One woman is the key to understanding the events. If you like this book try Lowell’s series Amber Beach, Jade Island and Pearl Cove. As a writer of romantic suspense I enjoyed these books. Hot.   
Outlander by Diana Gabaldon published 1991 and published in the U.K. under the title “Cross Stitch. Plot? This book is too long for a synopsis. I’ll just say it’s a great read, 20th century, 18th century, Scotland, historical romance, science fiction; it's one of the best.
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen published 1813. This tells the story of the Bennet family, the father, a country gentleman, his wife and five daughters. Each daughter needs a suitable husband. The main character is Elizabeth Bennet. As the book opens an appropriate gentleman moves nearby and the excitement begins. Read this book and understand why readers love Mr. Darcy. Sweet.

 Jane Ayre by Charlotte Brontë published 1847. This book follows Jane from childhood to her life as a governess at Thornfield Hall with its dark secrets and her relationship with the mysterious Mr. Rochester. I first read this in high school and still love it. Sweet.
 Gone with the Wind by Margret Mitchell Pulitzer-winning 1936 novel.  A southern bell struggles during the time of the US civil war in the 1860’s. This is also a great 1938 movie. I plan to read this book for the first time this summer. Sweet.

5 Summer Safety Tips

1. Stay out of the sun during the hottest time of the day 10 am to 4 pm.

2. Wear sun block and reapply every few hours or if you go into the water.

3. Do not use sun block on babies under six month of age and keep the babies in the shade

4. Remember to protect your eyes from the sun. If you use sun glasses be sure they are UV protected and if you can wear a hat.

5. Drink lots of water to stay hydrated.
