April showers bring May flowers...and tons of fantastic fun here in the Bandit Lair. Here's a sneak peek at what's coming up this month.
May 3 -- The wonderful and talented Jo Davis returns to the Lair. Be sure to have your fans handy because she's got a new firefighter book out, Line of Fire. And the guy on the cover is mighty purty.
May 4 -- It's time for another Bandita Launch Party! This time, we're celebrating the release of Christine Wells' Sweetest Little Sin. Isn't that cover simply divine?
May 5 -- Tawny hosts fellow Harlequin Blaze author Samantha Hunter. Samantha's new release, Make Your Move, has a posh bakery owner who makes aphrodisiac cookies as a heroine and her naughty professor type business partner who just might be a wolf in geek's clothing. Oh, sounds delicious!
May 6 -- Nancy hosts Gerri Russell, who'll be discussing the timeless allure of knights. I know the knight on the front of her latest cover is definitely alluring and, um, muscular. :)
May 7 -- Kate is hosting New York Times best-selling author Susan Mallery. Her Chasing Perfect, the first in the Fool's Gold series, is out this month from HQN.
May 8 -- Happy Birthday to us! We'll be raising the roof to celebrate the Lair's third birthday. Aunty Cindy has a special post from the Bandita Buddies planned that you won't want to miss.
May 19 -- Kathleen O'Reilly will be visiting the Lair to talk about summer love. Ah, summer love. And I like that tag line at the bottom of the cover...Some nights are made to be naughty.
May 20 -- Hey, we've already had two parties this month. Let's have another. It's Launch Party time for Beth Andrews' Do You Take This Cop? from Harlequin Superromance.
May 27 -- We're Launch Party crazy this month! Before May gives way to June, let's have one final bash for Anna Campbell's My Reckless Surrender, her latest historical release from Avon. Lots of giveaways and mayhem featuring cabana boys! Anna is starting the celebrations early -- hic -- after getting a Top Pick and a wonderful review from Romantic Times so who knows what state she'll be in by the end of the month?
To celebrate the release some more, Anna is giving away five copies of My Reckless Surrender (with that gorgeous, sensual, yellow cover) on her website. Just e-mail her at email@example.com and tell her where and when My Reckless Surrender is set. Clue -- you might find out in the excerpt on her Books page. The contest closes May 31, and you can get more details on the Contest page of her site.
May 29 -- I turn 40! Wah!!! I will need commiserations and assurances that I don't look 40.
