It was a beautiful night on the Washington coast. I was sitting on the deck of our family beach house gazing out at the sunset and reflecting on the past year. It has been an amazing journey for me. Not only have I (finally) successfully lost my “baby weight” (and did I mention, my “baby” is 20?) this was my first year as a published author.
I was taking in this beautiful scene and thinking how thankful I am for all of my blessings—fifteen books with awesome reviews and a passle of amazing new friends—and wondering what I could do to celebrate one year of being Sabrina York.
An eagle soared overhead, an exquisite shadow against the orange sky, and it hit me.
I needed to write a series in this setting. I had to.
But what would the plot be? Oh, my brain started to bubble then. I started sketching out ideas and before I knew it, I had ten stories plotted out. But which one would it be? The long time crush? The closet sub? The foodies? The estranged couple?
And then I realized. ALL OF THEM! The Tryst Island Series—the romantic adventures of a group of friends sharing a vacation house on the fictional Trystacomseh Island in Washington State’s San Juan archipelago—was born.
I wrote Rebound in a week (editing took longer) and put it up on Amazon. I enrolled it in the Kindle Prime program, because I wanted to be able to give it away for free once in a while to thank my readers. The response has been overwhelming. I hope you check it out. It truly is a labor of love.

Rebound by Sabrina York
A Tryst Island Erotic Romance
Kristi Cross has had the hots for her friend, Cameron Jackson as long as she can remember, but she knows she’s not his type. She’s nothing like the women he dates. So when he suggests they play for a kiss over a game of Hearts, Kristi can’t resist. Even if she loses, she wins. Because she’s finally going to taste him.
Of course, one kiss can quickly become something altogether steamier, especially when both parties are on the rebound…

He really wasn’t paying attention. He was busy planning his assault. If he lost the game, he got to kiss her. And he wanted to kiss her. In fact, the desire, the need to orchestrate the entire clinch bubbled deep in his gut.
He dealt again, trying not to glance at the clock. This should be the last hand if he played his cards right. Or wrong, as the case may be.
And yes. She won. Easily. In fact, she spanked him.
Although he didn’t let his mind linger on that image. It was far too distracting.
Instead, he leaped to his feet so quickly his chair toppled over. He ignored it—and her little ‘eep’—and came around the table in a rush to yank her into his arms and…yes! Yes. The feel of her, molded against him, was delicious. He’d known it would be.
The scent of her shampoo, or her perfume, or just Kristi, enticed him. He drew it in, savoring the moment, the knife’s edge of intense anticipation.
“You won,” he murmured, gazing down into her wide hazel eyes. “Now I have to kiss you.”
Her lips pursed. “You have to? Well, isn’t that just—”
She didn’t finish. Whatever she’d been about to say never made it out of her mouth because he took her then. He dipped his head and settled his lips over hers and ate the words, consumed them. A thrill shot through his solar plexus at the contact. Warm, supple, sweet. Fragrant.
He surprised her by diving in like that. She went a little stiff, but it didn’t take long for her to relax and respond.
And hell. Did she respond. Did she ever.
The kiss, which he’d intended to be slow and provocative, quickly raged into something else altogether. And when she uttered a throaty moan and her tongue peeped out to touch his, he nearly lost his mind.
