HAPPY NEW YEAR!

It's New Year's Eve, and I'm making plans for 2008...more steamy romance. I have a couple of stories in the works right now and am considering a sequel to Isosceles. That truly was a fun story to write. And couldn't we all use more fun in the coming year?

If you haven't picked up a copy of Isosceles Triangle or Bone Deep this year, there's always time to put that on your list of resolutions for the new year.

I wish I had a few words of wisdom to share, but all I can think to tell you is this: pursue your dreams. They seldom come looking for you--you have to go out and grab them!

Much love and many good wishes for a fantastic, sexy 2008!

"Top Marks Across the Board!" - Euro Review for Bone Deep

Title: Bone Deep
Author: Summer Alan
Rating: "Excellent!"
Heat Rating: (BDSM) "Extreme!"
Reviewer: Melisa

One minute Hailey Rockwell's life is sunny and great. She's a stewardess and her boyfriend is a pilot. Then her boyfriend, David, tells her he 'needs time to think' and leaves her raw and vulnerable. She gets soaked by the rain and if things couldn't get worse -her new expensive bag she bought lands in a mud puddle right in front of her. It's David's best friend and co-pilot, Kevin that comes to her rescue.

He uses his suit jacket to clean her bag, destroying his jacket in the process. While she is stunned still, he acts as if it isn't a big deal. A 'thank-you' kiss turns into much, much more.

Even though David dumped her, she doesn't feel right using Kevin. But Kevin has a secret of his own. He's wanted Hailey from the moment he set eyes on her and while David asked him to distract her while he goes and has a fling behind Hailey's back, Kevin isn't about to let this opportunity pass him by.

Kevin is torn in different directions. He wants Hailey, but he doesn't understand how she could have a relationship with David, knowing he's married. But the plot thickens and Kevin can only hope that when he tells Hailey the truth that she'll see how much he truly loves her and not tell him to go take a flying leap.

I liked Kevin when he cleaned Hailey's bag off at the loss of his jacket. I loved him at the first kiss. That man is HOT! Sex appeal like that makes a woman melt, weather it's done to her-or she reads it. And he's health conscious too. Top marks across the board. I just wish it had been longer. You hate for the good ones like this to end.

Never a Dull Email...when you Google Alert

I have my name and the titles of my books set to search on google automatically and email me the results. Did you know google can do that? Go to http://www.google.com/alerts and set your name and titles of your books in there. You'll know whenever your name comes up on the world wide web...
 
I say this with a word of caution...you might be surprised at what appears in your "in box".
 
This morning, I awaken (late) to such an email. Google notifies me that yes, someone has read one of my books and in their wisdom has given their opinion about it on their personal blog...which is full of her opinions on lots of books.
 
Yeah.
 
To say this person didn't like the book would be sort of sugar-coating a turd. She hated it. I mean, really hated it. She hated it so much that it was almost funny, which I don't think was her intention, but I did laugh.
 
I mean, I'm not sure what she expected, but it's tough to take seriously comments like "It doesn't help that there seems to be every sex variation in the book in it. What's next? A threesome? Frankly, it wouldn't have surprised me."
 
It's a thought...maybe in the next book. ha!

Contest Winners Announcement for Bone Deep

Good morning! After last night's release party for BONE DEEP at Cobblestone Press, I'm a little hung over (from staying up too late...not from drinking! ha!). I did, however, manage to climb out of bed this morning and pick winners for all my contests!
 
I will be sending out notices this morning to all of the winners to see which format you'd prefer for your copy of BONE DEEP.
 
If you didn't win, all is not lost, as you can still get yourself one at www.cobblestone-press.com for less than the cost of a Happy Meal...oh, and this is a *much* happier meal complete with veggies.
 
Hailey Rockwell is a flight attendant, recently told by her pilot boyfriend, David, that he needs more "time" to consider the direction of their relationship. Vulnerable, soaking wet in a Seattle rainstorm and miserable, she finds herself in the arms of David's best friend, Kevin, first for comfort, and then for something considerably more dangerous.

Will one moment... one rain soaked kiss... change everything for Hailey?
 
Have a wonderful day!
 
Summer
