I did have fun early on in the trip though. I finished up copy edits on Lethal Pursuit (out September 16th), then took both my boys out on a Zodiac whale watching tour with a marine biologist. If you've been reading my blog for a while, you already know how much I love humpbacks. Well. Not only did big weasel get to drive the same kind of boat the Navy SEALs use (holy awesome!), but the marine biologist had a hydrophone with her so we got to listen to the male singers sing beneath the water. So cool! (All humpback "singers" are male, but not all males sing, and they only sing in tropical waters. Also, the humpbacks don't eat while they're here, and won't until they go back to their northern feeding grounds for the summer in Alaska, etc. They fast for months while they're here to mate and give birth.)
I've been recording every documentary I could find about humpbacks for the past few months, so both the boys were well versed in whale trivia before we got here. We wound up seeing quite a few whales, and the most surface activity the marine biologist has seen all season long. Woot! I was a very wet, salty and happy camper. I hope the boys will never forget the experience, because I know I won't.
The other neat thing that happened while we were here is that I received notification that Darkest Caress has been nominated for the best paranormal romance of 2012 by The Romance Reviews. I was pretty tickled about that. The paperback version goes out to Harlequin's PNR subscribers in June. Can't wait to hold it in my hands!
Once I get home I've got administrative stuff to catch up on, then I have to finish up my latest r/s manuscript and figure out what to do with it. Not relishing the thought of another long flight over the open ocean, so please flap your arms for us tomorrow night! (I love flying, I love flying, I love flying...)
Aloha! See you on the flip side ;).

Also two of my favorite authors have new books out today. The first is Mating Instinct, by Katie Reus. This is the 3rd book of her paranormal romance Moon Shifters series, and Jayce is my favorite hero of the series. Gah! He's so macho-alpha-protective-smexiness.
A year later, an attack that left Kat near death has resulted in another lupine shifter turning her. Furious that he wasn't the one to save her, Jayce is determined to show Kat that he is the one she should rely on. But the newly turned shifter is still traumatized and worried that she'll hurt those she loves, unless she can learn to control her inner wolf.
And as Jayce struggles to protect Kat from her own worst instincts and convince her to rekindle
their love, the extremists who almost killed her are looking to finish the job...

The second book is Uncommon Pleasure, by Anne Calhoun. I adore Anne's writing, and so far my favorite book by her is Liberating Lacey. I can't wait to read this new book!
In “All on the Line,” Abby Simmons fell hard for Lieutenant Sean Winthrop, but he sacrificed their relationship when he deployed to Afghanistan. Now he’s home, full of regrets and intent on winning back the woman he never forgot. Abby gives Sean her body but holds her heart aloof, until one night of pleasure forces her to choose either her U.S. Marine...or life without him, forever.
