I can feel it in the air. I can almost taste it. Summer is right around the corner. I'm eating peaches and nectarines and strawberries. I'm wearing sandals (OK, in So Cal I can wear sandals almost any time of the year!). The kids are bringing home less and less homework. Summer also means I have more time for reading.
Hopefully, everyone else has more time for reading too, since I'll have three books out this summer. The first to arrive is my novella, Hot on Her Heels, in Secrets Volume 24 due in July. The second is my Harlequin Intrigue, A Doctor-Nurse Encounter (written as Carol Ericson), coming out on Aug. 12. And my third release is an e-story, "Sex and the Single Pearl," which will be available from eRed Sage in August as well. As the release date for each book draws closer, I'll blog about each story and give some behind-the-scenes info about each.
For what's on my summer reading list, I just picked up Susan Elizabeth Phillips' Natural Born Charmer in paperback. I'm thinking of saving that one for Maui in August (if I can wait that long). I'm also looking forward to Eloisa James' Duchess by Night, the third book in her Desperate Duchesses series, which should be out any day now. I also have a long list of e-stories to read from my fellow Red Sage authors and the authors in my online goals group.
Do you read more or less in the summer? Do family vacations and picnics and barbecues slice into your reading time? Or do you spend time at the beach or on the plane with a book? What's on your summer reading list?
