I am so thrilled that it’s the release day of Book 1 of my new trilogy. Beach House No. 9 comes out today, followed by Bungalow Nights on February 26 and The Love Shack on March 26. All three books take place during a “Summer of Love” in Southern California’s Crescent Cove. Wary hearts encounter each other in this idyllic setting: two miles of sand where colorful cottages sit right on the beach.
Because the three books come out within three months, I had to write them and stockpile them so it seems like the longest wait ever until I can share with readers this special place and the wonderful heroes and heroines who find love there. The stories are sexy, sunny, and are sure to warm up the coldest winter night. I hope you’ll give them a try!
But now that all the hard work of writing is done, it’s time for me to sit back and celebrate the day. I have a bottle of champagne that arrived on my doorstep this afternoon. There’s always cold Mexican beer in my refrigerator and the lime tree in the back yard has plenty of the green citrus to give them that special zing. Or maybe it’s time for hot chocolate (or chocolate of any kind!) in front of the fire as I let my mind drift away to a warmer season at Crescent Cove and Beach House No. 9.
What’s your go-to when it’s time to celebrate? Do you make chocolate chip cookies and indulge in them right out of the oven? Is it brie and a bottle of wine? A hot bath and a new book?
