Excitement Abounds!

The pre-launch of our first boxed set, Entice Me, is drawing near.

This month we have set aside our September theme so we can whet your curiosity about our upcoming boxed set. Half the member authors of RB'4'U are participating in this project, and we are so excited!

I had a wonderful insight while writing my story. The location I decided on is one of the most romantic places on earth, the French Riviera. It was so much fun writing the story, I was inspired to create a new series, Riviera Romances

Riviera Rendezvous is my novelette, written especially for Entice Me. 

From a cruise ship to the romantic Italian and French Rivieras, Riviera Rendezvous covers a lot of ground in a short time.

Here’s the Riviera Rendezvous blurb:

Amalie Pallas flees when she runs into danger on the cruise ship she calls home, but soon realizes she can’t afford to buy an airline ticket home from Italy.

Xandros Xenakis is more than the shipping agent everybody thinks he is—he owns the cruise ship and many more. He’s had his sights on Amalie for months, so when she suddenly becomes a stranded damsel in distress, he is quick to offer her a solution.

Can Amalie be his pretend fiancée without losing her heart to him? After all, their contract is only for a weekend. What could possibly go wrong at a family event on the French Riviera?

Here’s a very short sneak peak:

“What exactly do you think I’m willing to do to help solve your problems?”
Amalie’s stare—which had scorched men less self-possessed than Xandros—didn’t seem to even slightly intimidate him. He didn’t miss a beat.
         “Nothing you don’t want to do. I hope you’ll be my date for the weekend, and I’m willing to turn it into a business deal. I’ll pay you to accompany me.” 


I hope you decide to pre-order your copy of Entice Me and enjoy these stories, written to entertain you.  We’ve had a blast writing them, and are already talking about the next volume.

And if you enjoy reading my novelette, Riviera Rendezvous, you might like to check out my other new novella, Mediterranean Mischief. Both are in my new Riviera Romances series.
