As a life long vacationer to OBX, the place is like my second home and these secrets are true! Great post by Twiddy & Co!

Don’t buy your seafood at the supermarket. The beaches never close. Deflate your tires if you’re going to drive on the 4×4 beaches.

Some of these things may seem like no-brainers, but for a newbie to the Outer Banks, they could be game changers. Here are 14 excellent tips from folks that have lived here on the OBX for long enough to tell the tale:

14. Don’t buy your seafood at the supermarket:

Our Seafood markets get their fish right here on the OBX from Wanchese, the third largest seafood distribution center in the nation. It’s fresher, safer, more cost-effective, and more environmentally-friendly than buying from the supermarket.  Definitely don’t miss out the crabs, oysters, mahi, and tuna!

13. It’s 100% legal to have beer and wine on the beach:

Just remember we have family friendly beaches here so avoid glass, be nice, and clean up after yourself!  Don’t forget to pack some water in your cooler so you don’t…

When the Heat Gets Started

JoAnn Mercer was on the verge of surfer stardom when her career took a nosedive thanks to a backstabbing ex. Now she’s back home in the Outer Banks of North Carolina, staying clear of men, desperately in need of a job. Joining the local firefighting squad seems like the perfect solution, until she realizes one of her coworkers is an old crush…

It Will Never Stop

Ray Andrews never runs away from a fight. He served his country in Iraq, and he’s battled more fires than he can count. But what he can’t fight is the desire burning between him and JoAnn Mercer. He’s wanted Jo for as long as he can remember, but a promise made years ago has kept them apart. Finally free of obligations, Ray is ready to prove he’s the only man for Jo. But after the trauma of her past, can he convince her to love again?

Excerpt:Couple on Beach kissing

His all-terrain tires hummed against the pavement as Ray navigated the beach road on autopilot, his brain playing catch-up. The mad tattoo in his chest subsided as he replayed the last few minutes. She was home.

Lost in eyes the shade of his favorite scotch, he’d used all his strength to turn and leave. Her loose ringlets of light chestnut felt like silk. He’d fallen in love with her years ago. She never had a clue, but with her talent for surfing, she was bound for bigger things than him.

He wound the Hummer into Station Twenty-One’s lot at the south end of the beach, a newer facility than his home station. He’d worked a few swing shifts with each of their rotating crews. Beyond the high-adrenaline nature of the job, the brotherhood and camaraderie filled a void in his life. Ray swung through the kitchen door where the crew had gathered for lunch.

“That’s quite a grin you’re sporting,” the captain said. “You rarely see a happy expression on anyone coming in on his day off.”

“Must’ve got laid,” another firefighter teased. “Looks like he just showered.”

He let the banter slide and eased onto an empty chair. He tossed some bills on the table for the grocery fund. They’d be feeding him dinner too.

“So?” The captain raised a bushy brow.

“Surfing. The sets were perfect.” He smiled. A sub sandwich slid in front of him.

Seeing Jo after five years was better than sex. Unless the sex happened to be with her. But that would be making love. Something he’d only imagined―a million times.

Hot as Blazes is available for pre-order at major e-book sellers and will release by Kensington/Lyrical on June 9, 2015.
