From my desk to yours, April 4 2021
Well, here we are… Easter break. Whether you are celebrating a faith based moment or simply enjoying a well earned rest liberally sprinkled with chocolate, I hope that you are able to do so with peace, love, compassion, and acceptance for yourself and those around you.
I’m currently down island with my mother and enjoying taking care of her and hanging out with her puppers, Harry and Sassy. Trust me when I tell you that I am definitely also enjoying more chocolate than I probably should be right now…
Easter Freebie (April 2 – 5, 2021)
Truffles & Tramps (The Holiday Storybook Novellas #3) is free until April 5, so grab a copy and meet the naughtiest (in all the sexiest ways) Easter Bunny around. Spoiler…he’s not really a bunny… Remember that each of the Grove books can be read as stand alones – they’re just more fun if you read them as a set.
Pascal Hare, Holder of the Basket, has a reputation. Everyone in Edelweiss Grove knows he likes to party and have fun. He especially likes sexy fun – and has his own internet channel for his little clips.
Despite being the best Holder of the Basket in memory, Pascal’s antics don’t appeal to everyone. Like his father for example, who is determined to put an end to his behavior. Pascal doesn’t care what his father wants – he’s far too distracted by the arrival of the new chocolatier from Paris.
Michel Griotte is a master chocolatier who has come to help Pascal shake up his Special Day. Amused by Pascal’s behavior, Michel soon finds himself attracted to the naughty Fae and caught up in all kinds of sexy mischief.
Will Pascal’s father finally accept his son or is there something more sinister afoot in The Grove? Grab your free copy here or by clicking the image below:
