Today’s guest is the lovely, wonderful and talented Vivian Arend!
Holidays—that chance to kick back, take it easy, and drink as many fruity alcohol-laced concoctions as we can. Right?
Lauren’s got the right idea- and I’m still trying to follow her example and figure out the “relax and take it easy” part of the holiday deal. For the past umpteen years, anything involving the words â€˜holiday’ and â€˜travel’ has meant my feet were going to be involved. Whether stuffed into snowshoes, ski boots, hiking shoes or water shoes, the relaxing part comes at night when my head finally hits the pillow (made out of extra clothing bundled together).
My husband and I have traveled over the Rockies, along the Pacific and Atlantic coasts, and down the Yukon River. When the kids arrived, we hauled them along. Even when we did make it to Hawaii we took a side trip along the Napali Coast to Kalalau Valley. If you watched â€˜The Perfect Getaway’, you’ve seen the location we made it back to, although our version was sans the psychos.
In spite of most of my adventures being breathtaking instead of relaxing, I still love them—the thrill of getting caught in the kayak on the Pacific Ocean. Lost in the back woods of Wales. Still…
Someday, I’m going to go to a place with cabana boys, and they won’t be waving from beside someone else’s poolside as I hang glide past.
These elements have no desire to be tamed…
Pacific Passion, Book 1: Stormchild
As the new traveling doctor for the Pacific Inside Passage settlements, Matthew Jentry balances dual roles for his water-shifter people—caring for their health as a human-trained physician, and for their spiritual needs as a shaman.
Distractions of the female kind are not on his agenda, but his magical bloodline makes him a target for every marriage-minded woman within range. There’s something about the mysterious Laurin Marshall, though, that he finds far too enticing. It’s just as well that it’s time for him to move on.
Laurin thought she had perfected her guise as a mild-mannered teacher, but the sexual fireworks she and Matt touch off are threatening to blow her cover out of the water. Luckily it’s time for her to catch the boat to her next assignment.
When she discovers she’ll be sailing with Matt, she realizes there’s only one thing more dangerous than their unforgettable one-night stand—being trapped with him on a boat that gives “riding out the storm” a whole new meaning…
Warning: Contains strong sexual currents and powerful waves of desire that break down inhibitions. Recommended only for those able to navigate through extremely steamy situations, on land and at sea.
In honour of Pacific Oceans and watery fun, I’ve got 3 books to give away set on the coast. To enter to win, let me know what place you’d simply love to go for an ADVENTURE holiday. Because the Cabana boys are busy…
