It’s been a while

Today marked an interesting day in the Dee household.

THE KIDS FINALLY WENT BACK TO SCHOOL!

Sheesh, seriously, it felt like school holidays would never end. But today, ah…today. They’re back.

Which means from 8.30 – 3 everyday I get to be Jess again. (Forgive me if it takes a while to slip into my Jess persona. It’s been a while.)

I  figure the best way of celebrating the end of school holidays is by sharing a little something I was sent a couple of weeks back: The cover for my next release, Summer Wine.

This is the first book in a brand new series, set on a winery in Australia. The series is called Tastes of Temptation.

So waddya think?

Summer Wine releases on the 20th of May. (I know. It feels like FOREVER!)

It’s a MMF, with loads of sexy romance. Here’s the blurb:

SUMMER WINE

Tastes of Seduction, Book 1

Angus Lowe feels like he’s just stepped onto the set of Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous. He’s checking out a luxurious boutique hotel and winery, lured by the possibility of landscaping the gardens. And he’s crazy mad about the woman giving him the tour.

Problem is, Lily Hemington is way out of his league. Not only does she live the lifestyle of the rich and famous, she is also crazy mad about the owner of the hotel, Blake Seymour.

Issues get cloudier—or could that be steamier?—when Angus meets Blake. It’s clear Blake has deep feelings for Lily, but it’s also obvious he can’t take his eyes off Angus. While Angus doesn’t find this at all unpleasant, he’s painfully aware Lily and Blake are perfect for each other, and that he doesn’t belong in their perfect world.

Now it’s up to Lily and Blake to convince Angus the only world that counts is the one they all create together.

Warning: This book should be enjoyed with a bottle of chilled white wine. You’ll need it to cool down when the heat among these three characters burns out of control.

To everyone celebrating their kids return to school today, I’m raising a celebratory glass of wine to you.

The Day After

Wasn’t that a movie title?

Well, it’s nothing as apocalyptic as that. It’s the day after Australia Day, that’s all, and my firefighter’s calendar competition closed yesterday. I’ve drawn a winner this morning and it’s

Just Read it I Might Give You Something

January, Schmanuary.

I’ve decided I hate January. It is December’s hangover and it lasts all month. It’s hot. It’s my dayjob anniversary every January (7 years and counting). I’m trying not to eat tubs and tubs of ice-cream (traditionally known as dieting). I’m sapped of energy, what due to the heat, the hunger and the lack of motivation for driving to the aforementioned dayjob. Even the kids are starting to get bored and can’t wait to go to school.

Summer holidays. Who needs ’em?

Why am I moaning about all this? Because the January Syndrome (I’ve given it a name) effects my writing. I’m in a slump, and as it’s the 3rd January in a row I’ve found myself in this particular slump, I think it’s an ongoing condition. I finished one book… but I only had 3k left to write on it. I’m doing edits… but I’ve been faffing about, sleeping in through writing time and not getting them finished. Due by the end of the weekend, people. Ugh.

AND to top it all off, I haven’t blogged! First week of the month I was going to giveaway my QLD Firefighter’s calendar, because that’s the most appropriate time to give away calendars, I hear. But no. I haven’t even had the strength to lift my little fingers to do that. SOOOOOOOO… late as it might be I figure I had better give it away now.

How’s that for an enthusiastic announcement? Okay, how’s this?

WHO WANTS A HOT FIREMAN EVERY NIGHT OF THE YEAR?

YOU, THAT’S WHO!

I have a hot, signed Qld Firefighter’s Calendar to give away to one lucky commenter. Yes, I had it endorsed myself, not once, but twice! This is Mr August

My Fireman

He he. I promised my husband he didn’t cop a feel, he was the perfect gentleman (funny, he never asked if I copped a feel…). It’s also been signed by November, a very cute guy by the name of Andrew. If I’d had a friend with me at the time, I would have insisted on a shot with both of them. Ooohhh naughty. But young Andrew had to take the picture. I promise, he did. And he was totally cute. Did I mention that?

If you want one of these delicious calendars, AND a signed copy of my print book ERICA’S CHOICE, all you have to do is comment on this post. Tell me what you HATE about January. I know it’s snowing like mad in the Northern Hemisphere, so your experiences are way different. Tell me about them! Or if you’re one of those sunny people loves everything, tell me what’s so great about it. I’ll leave comments open for a week and also share this on Facebook and Twitter etc. If you comment there you’ll also go in the draw.

I’ll pick a winner on Australia Day 26th of January (Sunday) and announce it next week.

See you around the Nets. I’ll be the one trying to smile :)))))))))))))))))))))

GOOD LUCK!

Love

Sami

I’m thrilled to let you know that the first two books in the Speed series, See You In My Dreams and Colors Of Love are now available in a print anthology called Rhythm Of The Night. Look how gorgeous the cover is:

Rhythm of the Night

Sex, drugs love and rock ’n roll.

See You In My Dreams
Sophie has not only walked in on a guest, but she can’t shake the feeling that she knows him from somewhere. She just can’t quite place him.

Convinced the “maid” is just looking for a piece of his rock-star alter ego, Nathan can’t help but wonder why she’s blushing six shades of scarlet. Then he recognizes her. She’s the woman who for ten years has haunted his dreams.

Their attraction is unstoppable, but just this once, he’d like a woman to fall for the real man, not the celebrity superstar.

Colors of Love
Seth excels at making his dreams a reality. Except when it comes to his band’s manager. Luke is everything Seth wants, but after five years Luke hasn’t committed.

After an abusive childhood, Luke thinks Seth is safer without him. When he spots pretty, sexy Kaz, he formulates a plan to seduce her into a threesome, then leave her and Seth to fall in love.

Kaz’s ability to read auras tells her Seth and Luke are madly in love, and if she doesn’t do something, the two men she adores won’t get the happily ever after they deserve.

Warning: These stories are erotic, contemporary romance with a dirty dash of fantasy thrown in. M/F fantasies, M/M/F fantasies, M/M fantasies. C’mon. You know you wish it was real…

The book is available from: AmazonB&NSamhain and wherever books are sold!
