More on PERFECT TIMING

With only a little over two weeks until PERFECT TIMING is released by Ellora's Cave, I thought a little taste of what the book is about might be in order. Kudos to Dawn for writing this great teaser.

How to Seduce a Priest.

Dress as a Nun. Check.

Wear red lace underwear and stiletto heels. Check.

Drop face first in your desert and wait for the mouth to mouth. Double check.

Okay, so he wasn’t a Priest, and Daisy wasn’t a Nun, but she was really getting into the role-playing. Overall, he was her best choice. Hot, tall, rich and young. Especially young. He was also the host for the 60’s murder mystery weekend, and her best shot at rescuing her getaway from disaster.

When she’d read a 60’s murder mystery weekend, Daisy had been thinking, hippies, free love and tie dye, not varicose veins and false teeth. So, she missed one teeny, tiny word on the brochure. Over. As in, over 60’s, over the hill and when will this weekend be over?

Not one to spoil the fun for everyone else, Daisy decides to stick it out. With the hot host on the prowl, it might not be so bad.

Of course, every time she encounters Jake, she finds herself looking like an idiot. From almost knocking the… uh, bits and pieces off the statuary, to strolling in late with a sheep, she’s made quite the impression. Like an escaped mental patient. And sliding down the well-waxed banister and landing on her bum in front of him... Not a good idea.

When her charming host dresses her as a nun, Daisy wants to scream. Another impression she didn't want to make. Pious. Soon, she begins to wonder if she should go home and write the holiday off.

On the other hand, maybe not… He did wear that costume well.

Bless me father, for I have sinned...or I’d really like to.
