I'm in Alabama, which is thankfully a bit farther south than that. Our temps are still in the low 90s--and I don't want that to change much. I'd be happy with 85 and no humidity. As far as I'm concerned, it could stay that way year round.
I used to live in Hawaii, so I'm quite familiar with summer all year long. I thought I missed fall and winter and spring -- but the truth is I didn't miss winter at all. And that's the problem with fall being upon us, really. It means winter is around the corner. And I don'wanna!
Then again, last winter in Alabama was very miserable. We had snow--gasp!--and ice that shut down the roads for days on end. We had sub-20 degree temperatures. I do not approve. About all I'm willing to give winter is 45 degrees. And I don't even like that. I'd be happier with 60.
But, to keep myself happy, I'm currently working on a story set in a hot desert climate. There's a sheikh, of course, and a steamy romance to keep me warm.
And, speaking of sheikhs, I have a sheikh story out in the UK right now. It's a part of the New Voices anthology. There's me, Nikki Logan, Molly Evans, and Ann Lethbridge. It's a gorgeous book with four stories -- what could be better?
But there is yet another cool thing about it! An introduction by Katie Fforde in which she says, and I quote: "If you love romance, you'll love Mills & Boon New Voices and, if you haven't read a Mills & Boon romance for a while, this collection should make you remember just how good falling for a gorgeous man can make you feel."
I'm not ready for fall, but I'm always ready for a warm, hot, sexy, funny, lovely (I could keep going!) romance with two people who heat up the pages with passion and intensity. Today, to help you prepare for declining temperatures (brr!), I'll give away ONE copy of this gorgeous book to a lucky commenter! Tell me what your favorite season is and why! And it's okay if you like the colder months, though I think you're crazy.... *g*
