The secret’s out. The hottest, sexiest new resort in Australia is about to throw open its doors. And at Bandicoot Cove this means only three things:  luxury, decadence and indulgence.

Located on the lush, beautiful Bilby Island, just off Queensland’s Sunshine Coast, the resort has been making waves among jet-set travelers the world over.

What is it about this magnificent hotel that inspires love, lust and lots and lots of sex?

Could it be the five star opulence, or is it just something about the air out there…?

You can find out on the 23rd of August, when the first book in the Bandicoot Cove Anthology releases.

Exotic Indulgence, a super sexy, red-hot short story, written by Lexxie Couper, Vivian Arend and myself is just the introduction to a series of books that’ll have you reaching for the phone to book your very own tropical escape.

I caution you, read these books only if you have a good man, a good toy or a good block of ice at hand!

EXOTIC INDULGENCE: The Unofficial Blurb (Shh… Don’t tel Viv or Lex that I’m posting it.)

It’s time for an indulgence, or two…or three.

Kylie Sullivan has the world at her feet. Managing Australia’s newest, hottest luxury resort, Bandicoot Cove, is everything she’s ever worked for and everything she’s ever dreamed about. Far as she’s concerned, life doesn’t get any better.

The resort launch is one month away and everything is going as smoothly as can be expected. If she could only handle her personal affairs as easily as her business ones. The three men she’s been seeing on a casual basis make all her sexual fantasies come true, but when push comes to shove, and reality sets in, will she be able to choose just one of them?

Far as Brad, Hemi and Finn are concerned, life has a whole lot of unexpected pleasures in store for Kylie. The woman spends too much damn time on the job. They’re determined to prove that a mixture of work and play will not only make life better, it can make life absolutely perfect. And the only choice they want her to make is to say yes to an ongoing extravagance of passion.

Exotic Indulgence: An Unofficial Excerpt

He looked her dead in the eye. “Would you like me to take them off?”

The question sent her thudding heart slamming into her ribs.

His blue gaze bore into her, sending ribbons of desire spiraling down her spine. Damn it, this was Brad and Hemi’s fault. Because of them she’d developed a taste for gorgeous men. And this bartender extraordinaire was one gorgeous man.

She bit back her smile. Cocky little shit. She was so going to take him up on his challenge. She gave a sharp nod in his direction. “Yes, actually. I would.”

He stepped closer, his eyebrow raised, humor gleaming in his eyes. “Pardon me?”

“I said yes,” Kylie struggled to keep the humor and the lust from her tone. The man possessed more goddamned sex appeal than anyone had a right to own.

Another step. “Yes what?”

“Yes, I want you to take your shorts off.”

The humor vanished, replaced with a spark of fire. “Why?”

Why? Why the hell did he think? His hard, naked, male flesh, visible from the waist up, tempted her until her mouth watered. What would his hard, naked, male flesh below the waist do to her?

Hah, as if she needed to ask. “Because I will not allow insubordination, and dressed like that you are defying my wishes.” Damn, how’d she get her voice to sound so hoity?

He stepped ever closer, and his eyes narrowed, hungry flames visible beneath endlessly long eyelashes. So close now, she caught a scent of his aftershave—a waft of fresh, island air and sensual, sexy man. “Would you rather I pandered to your every wish?”he asked.

God, yes!

“If it means you’ll finally dress correctly, then yes. Absolutely.” The need to lean into him, touch him, was overwhelming. She restrained herself, straightening her shoulders instead, then wished she hadn’t. Her breasts poked into her shirt, and the damned cotton tortured her already aroused nipples. Coupled with the shivers down her spine, she refused to think what Mr. Bartender was seeing. Because he sure as hell was seeing something. His gaze had settled on her chest and a knowing smile touched his lips.

“Baby, I know exactly how to dress to please you.” And with that, he plucked the water from her hand, tossed it aside and kissed her.

Kylie had time only to take a wild breath, her heart jumping erratically, her skin tingling, before surrendering to his attack.

The instant their lips met, she melted. Any semblance of resistance to his charms evaporated as his tongue sought and found entrance to her mouth. She opened up for him, let his tongue take possession of her mouth and his body take possession of her mind.

His lips seduced, his tongue ravaged and his hands roamed freely over her back, up her sides. His fingers whispered over the edge of her breasts, then caressed down to her arse, pulling her into the cradle of his hips, pressing his erection against her belly.

Riotous yearning unfurled in her chest. Goose bumps erupted over her skin, and wet heat flooded her pussy.

Here and now she was his. Only his. Just like she had been last night. And three nights before that. And—

He tore his mouth from hers with a soft growl. “Kylie, fuck. You drive me crazy.”

She moaned. “Don’t stop kissing me. Please.”

“H-have to. Have to get rid of your shirt, feel your skin.” His fingers tangled with her buttons, tormenting her breasts beneath.

She couldn’t wait, couldn’t stand the cool air brushing her lips. Not when she ached for him, craved him. Grabbing his cheeks to steady his head, she crushed her mouth to his, demanding the kiss he’d refused. He fed it to her. Deliciously. Even as he slipped one button after the other through their holes, he opened up to her, allowing her to feast on his mouth, his tongue, his lips. Feasting right back.
