The flying variety. Ooh, we have a nest under our house. They're getting in through an airbrick, so I sealed it off. Now they're getting in under a light fitting. So husband sealed the edges with filler - fourth container he tried and he broke the gun he uses to squirt the stuff and went off in a huff. The damn wasps are still getting in. So I set a trap, baited it with lots of yummy stuff. I'd have eaten it. The wasps won't touch it. The bastards. But it's a lesson in determination. And instead of playing with food, I need to finish my story.

Feel good books

How I love Susan Elizabeth Phillips. Let me count the ways.... lots and lots.
Because I'm spending far too much of my time sitting in hospital waiting rooms, I've daylight hours to spend on books. I'm rereading Susan Elizabeth. All of them. She has such a great sense of humor, makes her characters flawed and fascinating, her minor characters equally compelling and I find myself deep inside the world she creates within pages - if not in the first paragraph. She is one of a handful of authors that I would buy without reading the blurb, one of handful that will always have a place on my bookshelf, one that I can read over and over and love more every time. I think part of the appeal for me is that they are very American stories - even if the heroines are sometimes English. The guys are VERY American and I love them. I just finished Fancy Pants and I adore the ending. It's cute and neat and you know it will make everything right in the characters' world. I just wish she'd write faster!

The Small Print - Out Today!!!!!

This is my first vampire-werewolf paranormal for Ellora's Cave. It's a menage, MFM, with alpha male wolf and an uptight vamp and a - something else. It's a mystery WHAT the female lead actually is. It was a mystery to me too until half way through when I decided what she should be. I do wish I could plan things out - still, it makes life fun.

I’m in trouble.

Matty suddenly finds herself back in her childhood home, naked and alone, with no clue how she came to be there. When her greedy uncle sells Milford Hall from under her, Matty hides in the attic.

The woman is trouble.

Vampire historian, Turner, has long had his eye on Milford Hall and there is no price he won’t pay to own it. He doesn’t expect to find an aggravating female living in his attic insisting she has a right to be there. The small print in the contract backs her up but Turner is determined to maintain his privacy. Doesn’t matter she’s the hottest thing he’s seen for years— in order to protect her from his mistakes, Matty has to go.

I eat trouble for dinner

After a self-imposed twenty year absence from Turner, werewolf Catch arrives to put the past right and save his former lover from circling enemies. But one kiss from Matty and Catch has more than Turner to worry about. Neither boy wants to share their new toy.
