Allow me to offer a huge thank-you to the lovely Kayelle Allen, mistress of all things romance! Thanks for hosting me. I’m here to tell you a bit about my newest paranormal romance Sunburn. It is my take on the myth of the Greek god Apollo. A finer hero there never was, in my opinion. When you read the stories about Apollo, he is everything a Greek god ought to be: incredibly handsome, strong, opinionated, and passionate enough to be a true Alpha, and he loves the ladies! I couldn’t help but use him as my hero.

However, as far as I’m concerned, Apollo is not the only star of this show. I wrote Sunburn as a love letter to Mexico. I’ve been visiting the Mayan Riviera for the past ten years, and have fallen in love with it as a vacation spot. It has everything: sun, heat, fizzy cocktails, gorgeous tanned men. It occurred to me that it might be fun to lift Apollo out of Greece and drop him smack dab into a Mexican resort famed for its luxurious beauty.

I’ve made him the owner of a 5-star resort, and he’s rather hands on. He becomes even more so when my heroine Patience arrives, complete with her own set of problems. They bristle when they meet each other, but the sexual tension is there in an instant. And who could blame them? Surrounded by palm trees, the scents of cocoa butter and rum, and scantily-clad people, who could help falling in lust?

I hope you’ll get a chance to check out Sunburn. And if you do, I hope I manage to whisk you away to this beautiful place, even if only for a little while.

Sunburn

Genre: Contemporary Romance
Blurb:
Patience O’Conner is a travel blogger who lives for her work. Her dedication to her readers brings her to the famed Helios Resort in Mexico, a locale that stuns her with its beauty but at which she suffers from some very strange accidents.
Luckily, hunky resort bartender Apollo Delos is always there in the nick of time, a malcontent guardian angel. Apollo stuns Patience again and again with his life-saving abilities, to say nothing of his smoldering looks and apparent desire to keep her alive.
Before long, Patience wonders if there is more to the sexy bartender than mixed cocktails and insane first-aid skills. Something strange is happening at Helios and Apollo doesn’t want to talk about it.
Can Patience open herself up to this enigmatic man, even though she is terrified to be vulnerable again? And can Apollo recover from an eternity of hurt and learn to trust once more? They must both decide before Death comes calling.
