It's out!

Roadtrip cover

It’s available here now!


When the going gets tough, Jill Delaney gets going…in the other direction.

This time the other direction has Jill hitching a ride with the Senior Center’s Spring Fling tour to Orlando. Screwed out of a promotion, she’s ready for some fun in the sun before it’s time to balance her checkbook again.

Ethan Cooper just wants to get his mother settled into her new job so can pick up the pieces of his own life. But first, Mom’s got a little vacation planned. Now he has to survive a trip with a busload of retirees and one sexy but infuriating blonde, then he’s home free.

But when they find themselves stranded and alone, Jill and Ethan are faced with making their own way south. Fighting desire and each other along the way, they give in and indulge in a little vacation sex–which doesn’t mean they have to fall in love. After all, Jill’s not ready to be domesticated, and Ethan’s convinced she’s not his type.

They never saw the handcuffs coming.

    Got mine. Instant download (as usual, I never have problems with EC) and looks beautiful in Adobe format. I love e-books. I want, I click, I get.

    Congratulations, Shannon.

    *sigh* As usual, mine was I want, I click, I get a corrupted one, I e-mail back, I wait for the right timezone to come round again, I get an e-mailed one that takes ages to download. :censor:

    *rubs temples* It’s worth waiting for, it’s worth waiting for….

    Congrats again, Shannon! Great day. :cheesy:

    Bah. My eyes are crossing. I’m up to chapter ten and loving it, but now I have to go sleep.

    Thank you!

    Bummer about the hassle, Anna. Hopefully the light saber scene will help cheer you up. :roll:

    NICE! Congratulations, Shannon. And you totally got lucky with the cover–it’s safe from our snarkery. Actually, it’s pretty hot. Woo woo!

    Thank you so much, guys. It’s a little scary to me that y’all are going to read it but since you’re all such wonderfully intelligent, savvy, beautiful, warm, fabulous and lovely readers…:nod:


    I hope you enjoy it. It was a fun book to write, and hopefully it’s a fun read as well.

    It’s tomorrow.


    Is it me, or am I getting a bit, well, rabid these days? :crazy:

    (It’s 7.36 am. I should be getting dressed. I should not be sat at my computer reading OUART. Page 128 and counting.)

    I just found the lightsaber scene.

    Okay, I finished it. :cheesy: This morning, in my dressing gown, while Husband stomped up and down the hallway going, “do you KNOW what time it is?? I’m fed up with always being LATE?!”*

    It’s a real handicap being your friend, because nothing I can say about how good this book is will be taken seriously. Put it this way – there are people who write Great Romance, and people who write Great Sex. You are one of those exalted, exceptional people who write both.

    * For the record, he’s been late TWICE in four years, and one of those was HIS fault, not mine!

    :cry: You’ve made me cry first thing in the morning, Anna. Have I told you I love you today? Thanks, luv. :kiss:

    It’s a real handicap being your friend,…

    Yeah, well try being my family. :lmao:

    Just kidding. :neener:
