My editors at The Wild Rose Press have decided to put Josie, Carson, and Eric’s stories, Surprise Me and Surprise Me Again into one book, Double the Surprise.

Surprise Me: Sometimes a fantasy is better left undiscovered…

Blurb: Josie and Carson Sandberg are on the cusp of being empty-nesters. With a cross-country move and Carson’s busy work schedule, there hasn’t been much time to connect. When gifted with a romantic getaway and challenge that says “Surprise Me”, the two embark on a trip that reveals secret desires and more. But sometimes a fantasy is better left undiscovered…

When I was writing Surprise Me, I knew there was more to Josie and Caron’s story. My editors agreed and Surprise Me Again was born.

Surprise Me Again: An invitation for drinks turns into a weekend of passion. Can one weekend fulfill all their fantasies? Can love overcome family issues?

Blurb: Charged with trespassing and indecent exposure on Erik Stenson’s private beach, Carson and Josie Sandberg return to South Padre Island to take care of the ticket. However, their reunion with Erik is not what they expected. An invitation for a drink turns into a weekend of passion that fulfills fantasies and leaves all parties wanting to explore a threesome outside the bedroom. Will time, distance, and family issues stand in the way, or will they be surprised again?

Worldwide Release of “South Seas Seduction” – March 13th

perf5.000x8.000.inddExcitement reigns in my house. Nearly one year to the day that I signed my contract with The Wild Rose Press for “South Seas Seduction,” the book is finally ready. It will release March 13th, with pre-order ready now.

It has been quite a trip. Signing contracts on-line was quite an experience – something I’d never done before. Then came the edits and edits and more edits. I learned about editing a galley, which is different from editing a manuscript. I found out I didn’t use Track Changes properly in Word which slowed down my editor, Trish. By-the-way, I loved working with her. Since everything is done via email, I hope someday to meet her face-to-face.

The day I received the mock up of my cover, I wanted to share it with everyone, but I had to wait. Every time I reached for the phone to call someone, I had to bite my fingers. I did call and share it with my good friend, Tina Susedik. Diana Carlile designed this fun cover.

When I met Diana at a conference two years ago and pitched South Seas Seduction, I had no idea she would become such an important part of my career. As we sat at the bar with her talking and laughing, I didn’t know she even designed covers. How lucky am I?

At this point, I need to thank Tina and Linda for helping me through this process. Tina for her guidance and Linda for her editing skills. She jokingly calls herself the “Grammar Nazi” and “Comma Bitch,” but I treasure her knowledge.

Blurb: Sheltered all her life as the daughter of an ambassador, Emma Labonte boards a small plane on a trip from Australia. One hijacking and a plane crash later, she finds herself on a deserted island and stranded with three different yet equally sexy men. With no hope for rescue, the four begin to carve a semblance of a life in their tropical setting. Closeness breeds curiosity, and naive Emma begins to wonder what it would be like to be loved by these three men. The adventurer Jack, Toby the intelligent doctor, and shy English professor Steve–each carve a special place in her heart. When her three men launch seduction in the South Seas, how can she resist?

So, without further ado, here is the link for the pre-buy. The book will also be available on the 13th on The Wild Rose Press website. If you don’t know, when you purchase a book from a publisher’s website, authors receive a higher royalty.
