Wild Weekend

I had THE best weekend EVER. My birthday was on Saturday, but on Thursday afternoon when I got to the school to pick the boys up, my husband suddenly appeared next to my vehicle. I immediately thought something must be wrong, but he grinned and said, "I got you an early birthday present."

I got out and who should I find standing on the sidewalk? My best friend and writing idol, Katie Reus. He'd flown her up that afternoon to spend my birthday weekend with me. How amazing is he???

Here's my reaction. I was so floored and beside myself to see her, I didn't even notice him filming. He titled the clip "Longest Hug Ever".

Katie's never been to Vancouver before and I was super excited to have her stay with us. I took her downtown to see Stanley Park and walk on the sea wall, then to my favorite comfort food restaurant, Burgoo. During her visit we ate a lot of great food, talked about writing and the publishing industry in general, and pretty much hung out all the time.

On my actual birthday, my hubby sent us to the spa in the afternoon. We came home to a surprise Mardi Gras themed party, complete with New Orleans style food and decorations. There was even a murder mystery game. Katie got to meet my closest family members and we had a great time.

I dropped her off at the airport yesterday and was so bummed the rest of the day. I feel a bit better today, but I know it'll be a long time until I get to see her again. My boys just fell in love with her, but how could they not? She's a sweetie.

So yes, it's official: I'm married to the best husband in the world. He's not the most affectionate or romantic guy, but he does these grand gestures from time to time that just floor me. This birthday he gave me the best gift I've ever received!

Covert Seduction

That naughty Callie Croix has a new release out today! Covert Seduction is 53,000 words long, and it has a bit of a suspense plot as well. If you like steamier romance, you might like this title because it's definitely hot, but it's very romantic and tender as well.

Callie is giving away a copy of the book over at her Facebook page today, so leave a comment about your all time favorite romance hero to enter the contest.

In Kaylea news, I'm winding up my rewrite of my Civil War manuscript and it's due to my editor shortly. She's ready Lethal Pursuit soon (Maya and Jackson's story), and I have all my fingers and toes crossed that she likes at least the meat and potatoes of it. Between the revisions, edits and drafting other projects, I won't be writing anything more for Callie Croix in the near future. I've got my plate full with more military romance books!

Here's what Covert Seduction is all about:

Blurb: Navy SEAL Reid Galvin is back from hell and eager to find comfort in Becca Anderson’s arms. He knows he hurt her when he cut contact during his deployment, so when his call interrupts her date with another man, he has only himself to blame. But he can’t forget what she means to him—or the sexy email she sent him—and he won’t miss this chance to claim her as his own.
It’s been weeks since Becca heard from the man she thought she was involved with. So when Reid wants to take up where they left off as if nothing happened, she refuses. Then he rescues her from a first date gone very wrong, and she realizes she’s not quite ready to let him go.
Reid and Becca have a lot to talk about, but since she’s not listening, he’s going to have to regain her trust another way—by bringing her most erotic fantasies to life. Making her surrender to pleasure just might be his most important mission.

Happy reading!
