“Tra-la, it’s May/The lusty month of May”
That song from the musical Camelot always pops into my head this time of year. Especially this year when May is an extra special month because my (lusty) erotic contemporary novella, Almost Perfect, is Decadent Publishing’s Read For A Cure book! *fanfare*
For the entire month of May, Decadent will donate all its proceeds for Almost Perfect to Relay for Life. So when you buy a copy, you are helping fight cancer. How neat is that?
Because this cause is dear to my heart (my cousin is a breast cancer survivor), I will also be making a donation to Relay For Life. If you’d like to read more about Decadent’s committment to this cause, click the link above.
Remember, summer is fast approaching and Almost Perfect is the perfect summer read at the beach. It’s set on a deserted island in the Caribbean–think Johnny Depp and rum–and includes everything a hot romance should have–a hot guy, a sassy girl, and sex on the beach! Oops, that’s for later. LOL Here’s the blurb and an excerpt from Almost Perfect, just to get you in the mood. After the excerpt, I’ll give you the buy links, so you can help fight cancer and get a great summer read with one click of your mouse!
Blurb for Almost Perfect:
Pamela Kimball’s birthday present, a 1Night Stand adventure, promises to jump-start her life, put a new man in her bed, and help her forget her past. Unfortunately, movie-buff Pam’s Pirates of the Caribbean fantasy takes an alarming wrong turn when she’s abandoned on a not quite deserted island—with ex-husband Roger Ware.
Forced by hunger to accept Roger’s offer of dinner, Pam realizes the geek she married has transformed into one of the most charming, sexiest men she’s ever met. His newfound confidence—and hot body—re-kindles old fires. A simple kiss leads Roger to challenge her to discover how much his lovemaking skills have improved, leaving Pam torn between self-preservation and burning desire.
With time running out before they’re rescued, Pam must decide if her heart can survive the consequences of becoming Roger’s “almost” perfect 1Night Stand.
Excerpt from Almost Perfect:
She inched into the lapping surf, searching for movement. Reflection off the water made this task harder than expected. Wasn’t the Caribbean supposed to be teeming with fish? Now that’s something she’d had a lot of instruction in. Almost every marooned-on-an-island movie had a scene where the heroine learned to catch fish. Six Days, Father Goose, Blue Lagoon. All you needed was your hands and patience. She could do this.
Pam waded out further then stopped just before the water hit her now dry shorts. “Not gonna to have a damp crotch all night.” The words reminded her of exactly what she had hoped for tonight. “But not from wet shorts!” She headed back to shore to remove and drape them next to her shirt. The bandeau was a different story. Still damp, even after several hours, and uncomfortable. Might dry better if not next to her skin anyway. “Screw it! Live dangerously.”
Standing as good as naked on the deserted beach, Pam smiled as the warm breeze caressed her bare body. The sense of being slightly naughty added to her delight in the sensual feel of the air as it dried her breasts. Her nipples peaked as the wind cooled them. She strutted down to the water’s edge to sink her toes in the sand, the salty tang in the air adding to the perfect moment.
“If you’re skinny dipping, you forgot to remove one very important piece of clothing.”
Pam whirled around. Roger stood on the beach behind her, a green bottle of Perrier in one hand. His gaze played up and down her naked torso and his salacious grin widened. “Mind if I join you?”
