Escape to the Caribbean this winter

Congratulations to "Emily B." the winner of Romy's giveaway. Thank you to all who participated!

I write modern day fairy tales, or “romantic escapism” as my editor calls my books. This Christmas season, if you’re looking to escape from long dark nights and freezing cold, how about escaping me with me to the magical islands of Los Pajaros?

This is a group of fictional islands in the southern Caribbean, home to balmy breezes, warm waters and uber-hot princes. Or in this case, Prince Fredrik of Westerwald, the tiny European nation that owns these islands.

The little-known archipelago of islands, ranges from little islands which are barely more than a bar of sand and a handful of palm trees, to the largest inhabited island, also conveniently known as Los Pajaros (Spanish for the birds).

Its’ nearest inhabited neighbour is Arelat, birth place of Christian Taylor, Hollywood man of mystery and hero of the as-yet-unnamed Book Three.

And then there’s Tortuga...the island where no local has set foot in hundreds of years...until Rik brings location scout Kenzie here and triggers the pirate’s curse.

Join  me on a trip to paradise in The Trouble with Mojitos, follow-up book to Waking up in Vegas.

The Trouble With Mojitos

Turquoise blue waters. Sandy white beaches. Mojitos... Film location scout Kenzie Cole has found herself in paradise. Working in the Caribbean for a week is just what she needs to escape the long line of exes in her closet. Though the last thing she expects is to be picked up at the resort bar by a disgraced former Prince!

Luckily for Kenzie, exile is suiting the man formerly known as Prince Fredrik very well. And it’s not long before his rugged, pirate charm is proving hard to resist.

But Rik’s been spending his time in paradise exorcising demons of his own and he has danger written all over him. If Kenzie was sensible she’d run a mile instead of lose herself to lust - although, they do say sometimes you have to get lost before you can be found....

The Trouble with Mojitos is published by Harper Impulse, a division of Harper Collins, and is available from the following online retailers:
Amazon UK
Barnes & Noble
All Romance eBooks

I’ll be giving away a copy of Waking up in Vegas to one blog reader. Have fun and keep warm these holidays!

About the Author:
I’ve always written stories for myself, but didn’t even think of being an author until I realised that being over thirty and living in a fantasy world was a little odd. Writing those same stories for other people makes it a lot more acceptable!

By day I dress in cargo pants and boots for my not-so-glamorous job of making movies but at night I come home to my two little Princesses, in Johannesburg, South Africa, where I live, and I get to write Happy Ever Afters. Since I believe every girl is a princess, and every princess deserves a happy ending, what could be more perfect?
