I hope my American friends had a wonderful Thanks Giving last week, and you’re not too stuffed full of Turkey!
I must be becoming more American with my foray into the publishing world, as I felt like I should be celebrating Thanks Giving too. So I cooked myself some chicken (couldn’t find turkey – usually arrives in the supermarkets in New Zealand for Christmas), and had my own little Thanks Giving dinner. I gave thanks for my supportive family, my wonderful friends, my terrific readers, my agent and editor, and my writing buddies.
We had nothing as exciting as Thanks Giving happen this past weekend in New Zealand, except an election. Yip, it was our three yearly election of a new Government – in this case the re-election of our current National Party Government. If you’re interested in learning about New Zealand politics click here – I warn you, with a population of only around four million people, it’s not very exciting.
Here was Jill’s original review:
I have also received the cover flats for INVITATION TO SCANDAL.
“You’re very tempting, you know.” Rufus’s voice and the fire in his teasing eyes were having a similar seductive effect as the alcohol would have.
Who was she fooling? Rheda had been off balance the minute he’d gazed upon her.
“Your beauty cannot be disguised by these rags. I see someone has given you fine silk stockings, your lover perhaps. He must be a wealthy man.”
“I have no lover.”
Rheda could tell by the quirk of his brow that he did not believe her. A woman dressed as she was, with hidden silk stockings. No wonder he had jumped to the wrong conclusion.
She shook her head. “Besides, I had nothing to do with the face God bestowed on me. It is not meant to entice you. I cannot help how I look.”
He nodded. “No more than I can help wanting to glory in it.”
With those husky words, he rose over her, slowly pressing her back into the fresh green grass. She felt every inch of his lean, hard body, and his masculine scent filled her nostrils. Rheda’s body betrayed her, welcoming the feel of him; the aroma of sandalwood and virile man became a heady rush that enhanced all her senses.
“Come now, do not play coy with me. You are old enough to know the games men and women play. I would give you great pleasure. I would satisfy you more than any of your other lovers.”
She’d had no other lovers.
How could she make him believe that?…
