Books have always been a part of my life. Our parents read to us—my brother, sister and I—when we were young. I remember nursery rhymes and fairy tales galore. The book habit stuck leaving my brother a fantasy and sci-fi fan while my sister and I enjoy romance and mysteries.
Each year our Christmas stocking (in our family it was actually a pillow case) contained at least one book. I recall pulling a Dr. Dolittle book from my stocking at an ungodly hour on Christmas morning. I settled back with a bag of peanuts to munch and started reading. As a child I devoured books and that hasn’t changed.
Once we were all at school my mother returned to teaching. She taught five-year-olds and owned a huge collection of children’s books. She was always showing us her latest purchases, and we had to read the latest Bernstein Bears installment, about Hubert’s Hair-Raising Adventure and The Bunyip of Berkeley’s Creek. Not such a hardship because kid’s books are fun and cute with great pictures.
For me, it’s not Christmas if I don’t receive a few new books. I think they’re the perfect present for all ages. Books are an adventure, a rest from routine, a chance to armchair travel and live someone else’s life. Books are an education. My nieces and nephews receive books, either fiction or non-fiction while recipe books hit the spot for the cooks in the family. For the men there’s a copy of the latest thriller or maybe a biography about a sports star. There’s a book for everyone. All the purchaser needs to do is make a match. Heck, it’s a bit like dating!
Finally, let me head into promo territory to tell you about my Christmas book. Christmas is Coming is book two in my Fancy Free series. And yes, it’s a naughty one. These characters got up to mischief before Christmas.
Christmas is coming. Give your lover the gift of pleasure…
Gaby Montgomery works for Fancy Free as a condom designer. Recently she’s been designing sex toys and testing her inventions with fellow designer Marc, but they’ve parted ways. The timing couldn’t be worse because she’s stuck without a willing test subject for her sexy products.
Gaby’s roommates Liam Richardson and Fletch Darcy both want a serious relationship with Gaby, and now that she’s free, it’s time to make a move. But how do they decide which one will date Gaby? Fletch finally suggests they share her. Liam is skeptical but agrees the scheme might work, which allows Fletch to move on to step two of his romance plan. Fletch doesn’t just want Gaby, he wants Liam as well.
The loving is hot, their days full of fun product testing, exquisite pleasure and laughter. Everything is perfect until the outside world intrudes, putting their budding relationship under stress. This time their love and friendship might not stand the pressure.
Publisher’s Note: Want to have more fun with the characters in this book, including finding out more about those spaceship sightings, then pick up Fancy Free along with the books in the Talking Dog series. They’re an out-of-this world experience.
