Happy Birthday to Me!

So, my fantabulous editor made my day yesterday - by sending over my new cover for my new book which hits cyber shelves in just under a month! And there it is on the left! Is it not pretty? Don't you just want to pet my Saint - er, I mean that villa?

What she didn't know when she sent it over is that it's my birthday week - which made it even more of a fun day. Today - September 5 - is my actual birthday, but we celebrate by the week in our family, so it's been a fun few days.

Here's the blurb: Esmerelda Quinn has been looking for a place to belong since her parents were killed in a car crash when she was young. The closest thing to home has always been Aunt Constance's villa in Puerto Vallarta, so after a string of dead-end hotellier jobs, she's coming home to run the villa.

Santiago Cruz has called the villa home for as long as he can remember. In between surfing events, Constance has always had a room for him. Color him surprised when Constance decides to retire - and leaves a joint interest in the villa to both Santiago and Esme. 

Esme isn't thrilled to share ownership of the villa with the the youngest Cruz brother - especially as the Cruz family has been after the villa for years. But Santiago has grown up while she's been away and soon she finds herself falling for the rich boy down the hall.

I'm so excited for this book to release, it really is my favorite (shhhh, don't tell Kathleen and Jackson)...mostly because of my ex-surfer Saint. His sinner, Esmerelda isn't too bad, either. lol Over the next month here and on my personal blog I'll be sharing little bits about the book...and then on October 1, you'll find Saint & Esme on cyber shelves everywhere...I hope you all enjoy reading about them as much as I enjoyed writing about them!

For now, though, happy birthday to me!!

  10. Congrats on the new release. Sounds like a great book. Oddly, I didn't want to lick the villa...I was more focused on your handsome fellow. However, I've given up licking people. It makes them cranky.
