I hope your brought your swim suit because it’s time to par-tay here Under the Tiki Hut! Grab a Mai Tai, pull up a chaise, kick off your sandals, and bury your toes in the sand. To start this shindig rockin’, I’ve brought along some friends from my latest release, Bittersweet Obsessions.
The stunning brunette in the black and gold bikini is Teriza. She’s Crainesian, which means her ancestors escaped here from the planet Crainesia before it exploded. What’s that? Yes, they’re telepathic, but don’t worry, they have a strict code against ‘eavesdropping.’ Isn’t her tan pretty? Their honeyed skin looks like warm caramel after being in the sun.
The tall, tan guy with his arm around the pretty redhead, is Deacon. He’s also Crainesian and a landscape architect who’s obviously been working without a shirt. No farmer’s tan on that one. Whew! Where’s a cool breeze when you need one?
Where was I? Oh, yes. The redhead under Deacon’s arm—Carol K, stop staring at his abs and pay attention. I’m talking about the cutie in the turquoise tankini. That’s Sallie, his wife. She’ll stick close because Teriza is here. You see, Teriza and Deacon are life-mates, which means they have a strong physical attraction enhanced by overactive pheromones whenever they’re around each other. My guess is Sallie won’t let Teriza get too close. While Sallie looks demure, she can be a tiger. Yes, sir. I’m envious of her sexy underwear drawer, but not so much that creamy complexion. Bless her heart, I do hope she used sunscreen.
Oh, yum, there’s Paul. He’s the big, rugged looking guy headed this way that looks kinda like that movie star, Clive Owen. Too bad he only has eyes for Teriza. Otherwise, I’d be dropping y’all like a hot potato and rushing over to get that extra pina colada he’s carrying. (sigh) Sure wish that last button would pop off his shirt... Oh, lordy. Did I say that out loud?
I invited a ton of people, including Sela and Jonavon from my short story Insight and Zeenie and Turk from my novella Phantoms & Fantasies. Klaus, Teriza’s sexual surrogate and a major hottie will show after he downloads his own copies of them on Amazon. Between us, I think he’s just pouting because he wants his own HEA.
Woo-hoo! Somebody just cranked up Bob Segar’s “Old Time Rock ‘n’ Roll.” That’s what I’m talkin’ ‘bout! All right, everybody, choose a character and mingle, ask questions. Let’s make friends.
