*cue intro song Mungo Jerry*….In the summertime when the weather's high, you can stretch right up and touch the sky, when the weather's fine...
Yeah well, two weeks ago I would’ve killed that song faster than Mungo Jerry could sing the next line. You see, hubby and I had a plan for this vacay. We would go on a long weekend away, go out, have some romantic man-woman time, see a movie if weather would be bad and have some fun with our god twin and niece and nephews. Well, our car thought it would be best to conk out on us at this time and it came attached with a bill on its ass that got hubby a shade of pale that would make Edward Cullen jealous.
So now it’s a no-no for long weekend away *cries* and I have to get creative for myself. Well, every so often I check myself in for a mental vacation – No, no, it’s not to check if I’m going nuts as a book-addict or a smut gal, but a place that has the best of the best to get my batteries recharged. I can get there by the blink of an eye, no waiting period, no missing planes, trains or misfiled hotel reservation. I take my booty in a long chair, grab a cocktail, close my eyes and….aaaaahhhhhhhhhhh, yes, this is more like it:
And look what walks up the beach for me to play with….
A true beach candy with skills to make me dinner, massage my tired body and keep me safe from all natives that may, or may not, pop up and see what I’m doing on their island. No sacrificing of myself on an alter to one of their gods…that’s not on the schedule for this mental vacay.
Now I’ve got beautiful panorama – check – sounds of waves in my ears – check - chair to lounge in – check – a cocktail to grace my taste buds – check. I’m already starting to relax and magically appears…my e-reader. Yes, I’ve also got the reader 2.0 upgrade and next to my print books now am addicted to my digital library :) So what is on it you might wonder? Well, let me give you a sneak peek in my e-library:
Marquesate & Vashtan: Special Forces series -MERCENARIES part 1 & 2
Laura Wright: Mark Of the Vampire series - ETERNAL HUNGER
Jourdan Lane: Soul Mates – BOUND BY BLOOD
Amy Lane – KEEPING PROMISE ROCK
Also Nicole Laurent – UNDERGROUND & Claudia D Christian – Vicious Bliss; FALLEN have found a way to my e-reader. More than enough books to keep my satisfied I’d say *grin*
Now I’m ready to commence my mental vacay, if you want to join me for a cocktail, put on your sexy bikini, click your strappy heels three times and chant “Blue Lagoon here I come’
