Looking for a hot summer read?

Or for those of you who live in the Southern Hemisphere, are you looking for something to heat up those cold nights?

Well then I have to tell you about Viv Arend’s new release: Tidal Wave. (And I make no excuse for shamelessly plugging her work just because she is a friend of mine. This book deserves a good plug.)

Those of you who know me, know I have an obsession with dolphins and whales. So you can imagine my delight, when for my reading pleasure, Viv sent me her unedited version of Tidal Wave! A book about dolphin shifters. More than that…a dolphin shifter menage. I was in heaven – and coincidentally, in Melbourne, attending the  Australian Romance Readers Conference. There was not much free time to read, so I had to grab the opportunities when I could – which was on the tram on the way to and from ARRC in the early mornings and late evenings. I guess the most telling part of how much I enjoyed this book was the somewhat embarrassing fact that on one ride home I missed my stop, and had to walk a couple of kilometers just to get back to the house where I was staying.

This story is wonderful. Hot, hot, hot and funny. With some hot men/dolphins thrown in to make the book even (dare I say it?) hotter. Alexia is one lucky devil dolph lady, and Joshua and Anthony are fantastic heroes (although I particularly like Anthony.) But I have to say the character who takes the cake in this book is Alexia’s granny. Wait til you meet her. She will leave you with a huge grin on your face.

Look, I could carry on telling you about how much I enjoyed the story, or you could see for yourself.

Check out the cover first of all. I think it is utterly gorgeous. Then do yourselves a favour. Judge the book by the cover! Go ahead and buy it.

Slippery when wet…

Forces of Nature, Book 1

From her first kiss to her first sight of dolphins dancing on the waves, Alexia Colten has always held a special place in her heart for Jaffrey’s Cove. Now that she’s back to help her grandmother settle into a home, she discovers this place has lost none of its remembered magic. In fact, it seems more magical than before—and more erotic.

After she’s gifted with a beautiful, dolphin-etched medallion, she finds herself surrounded by the golden boys of summers past. Her body is filled with longings she can’t explain and dreams of blue lights that turn into lovers.

Joshua Marley and his cousin Anthony are merfolk, a people capable of living beneath the waves as either dolphin or human. Alexia holds the medallion that marks her as the next in line to lead their people—if she can prove she can transform. Working in tandem, they’re sure they can arouse her passion and protect her from those who would use her simply to gain power.

But their strength alone may not be enough to help her face the challenge of her new position…

Warning: This title contains a conniving granny, naked men in the surf and shifters who take fun in the water to new depths. Snorkels not required.

  1. Thank you so much Jess!

    And **giggle** you never told me you missed your stop!! That is too funny. I’m sorry. I owe you a foot massage…


    (And Gram and Anthony are my fav’s too. Except I still have this spot in my heart for Joshua… ah see?)
