I’ve been off the air-ways on vacation/holidays in a tent. Cue a heatwave!
Yes, folks, we had four days of temperatures over 43C/108F (!!) and I was under canvas. Fortunately, we were by the sea so although it was stifling hot, most days we could catch a breeze or just sit in the ocean.
Now, the Southern Ocean is a freezing place and most summers,I am in a full length wetsuit just to survive ten minutes in the water. This year, the water was like a bath! I didn’t get the wetsuit out of the bag. On the hot days, not even the sea could summon up any energy and it was flat-as…no surf for us 😦
In the middle of all that, my latest book, Runaway Groom launched so there was a mad dash to the library to do some promo!
I got home to a new contract for two medical romances so they will appear in 2015 and 2016. Meanwhile, I hope you can indulge me while I tell you about Runaway Groom.
It’s also my 24th novel and it’s just as exciting as my first or perhaps even more so because now I have dear readers who know me and write me asking when the next book is coming out 🙂 I was thrilled to get an email from a reader with an advanced copy who said, “Dear Fiona, You are not helping my insomnia!” She read Runaway Groom in one sitting Just in case you don’t know what Runaway Groom is about, it features an Aussie guy on the run, a lawyer hiding out and a heap of well meaning people in Whitetail. I t’s a stand-alone book BUT if you’ve read Saved By the Bride and Picture Perfect Wedding, you get to revisit with old friends too.
I have a Pinterest board so you can peek in and see the log cabin Amy and Ben are forced to stay in This is what the blurb says…..
Runaway Groom; Book three of Wedding Fever
Amy Sagar’s life is in ruins. Fired from her fast-track job and dumped by her double-crossing boyfriend, she retreats to Whitetail, Wisconsin, to lick her wounds and regroup. Meeting an impossible, sexy Australian isn’t part of her strategy for getting back on track.
Ben Armytage is running away. After being left at the altar and publicly humiliated, he’s taking his vintage motorcycle on an extended road trip from Argentina to Alaska. Having his journey interrupted by a breakdown and sharing a house with a curvy, redheaded lawyer in a town obsessed with weddings was never on his itinerary.
Though being stuck in a luxury log cabin isn’t really a hardship, livingtogether with their broken hearts isn’t easy. When the attraction between Amy and Ben proves unstoppable, they’ll both begin rethinking their plans…
So that’s what I’ve been up to! What board games do you play on holidays/vacation?
