Who's in the mood for a party? There's a strawberry shortcake, finger sandwiches, tarts, cranberry scones, peanut butter cookies, brownie bites, whipped cream puffs, herbal teas, and pink lemonade. Later tonight they'll be cocktails. Grab something sweet, kick back and enjoy the party!
I'm celebrating the release of my novella Sun, Sand & Seances by having a Victorian Tea Party. I couldn't think of a better way to celebrate a story set in the romantic old historic town of Cape May, New Jersey. Sun, Sand & Seances was released last week by Decadent Tease.
Here's one of the oldest hotels in town. A psychic fair would be great here!
A horse and carriage ride with a tour guide who gives you some of the history of the town along with a few of the ghostly tales from years gone by.
Here's one of the living rooms in a bed and breakfast. I'd love to have tea in here.
Here's the book trailer made by Winterheart Design.
Bobbi Collins is a caring and devoted kindergarten teacher who had her world turned upside down when her fiancé died after a lover’s quarrel. Five years later, she still struggles with acceptance. Her role as an educator fills up her week, but on weekends, she longs for something more. When she stumbles across a newspaper ad for a psychic fair in the historic town of
Cape May, , it seems like the answer. Bobbi is determined
to revive her once vibrant life. New
Kevin Carlton a successful realtor is tired of the dating game. He doesn’t remember buying a raffle ticket, but when his co-worker announces he holds the winning number, he decides to take a chance and attend the all expense paid weekend in
Cape May, at the Lady
of the Sea's Psychic Fair. He hopes to find a spiritualist who has the ability
to contact his late father and prove he has become a man to be proud of.
Can sun, sand, and séances cast a spell on their hearts and allow the reunited couple to find what they both desire, or will the spirits sabotage it all?
He sat beside her on the bed and slid close. “Don’t be scared. There’s always something to repair in these old hotels. Try not to let all of the ghost stories get to you. It’s all in fun.”
“The stories I’ve heard sound real.”
“I think the air conditioner made the noise.” He laughed.
Bobbi grabbed the blanket from the edge of the bed and placed it around her shoulders. “Don’t you feel the cold air?”
“Did you turn it on when you came into the room?”
“No, I thought you did.”
“Now, that’s weird. I didn’t touch it.” Kevin tucked her against him. With their bodies close, neither of them said another word.
The warmth of his touch calmed her nerves, and Bobbi turned to gaze into his eyes. She gasped when he gave her an intense stare and placed his hand on the side of her face. Her desire surfaced and the wall she’d built to protect her heart since her fiancé’s death began to loosen. His cologne teased her to remember how sweet he had always been. As Kevin pulled her close and nuzzled her neck, she wrapped her arms around his broad back. When he placed his lips on hers and searched her mouth with his tongue, she whimpered and surrendered to his embrace. His kiss a reminder of the fun-filled days and long passionate nights. Why had she given him up? The image of her fiancé flashed in her mind like a bucket of cold water, and she shoved against Kevin’s chest, loosening his hold.
