My husband is receiving an award from the company he works for and the ceremony for him and about 700 other people he’s never met will be held in San Antonio.
I’ve been to Texas. To one of the airports in Houston. I got off the plane, had to sprint to the other end of the airport and board the connecting flight that would take me to Denver. But, I’ve always wanted to go to Texas. I’ve heard a number of people complain about the heat, the humidity, but I’m from Florida…105 degree temps, 100% humidity. And that was near the ocean. The fish got sunburned just swimming in shallow water. However, this trip to Texas takes place in June, roughly 10 days after I return from Cincinnati and Lori Foster’s Reader/Author Get Together.
I’m excited. I’ve heard so much about San Antonio and honestly can’t wait to see it. Our free time is limited as the company has a lot of stuff planned out already. My only real free time to do anything is from Friday afternoon to Saturday afternoon. 24 hours.
I need to research the River Walk area, completely. I’ll be the tourist with her camera snapping shots of everything. I’ll be wandering the downtown area. Again, snapping pictures. See, that 24 hour period is a research trip for me. I have a new series set in San Antonio and I love first hand knowledge.
There are several areas and states in the US that I want to visit that in all my 42 years I haven’t. The New England states. Washington, D.C., the Pacific Northwest, Montana, Chicago, Alaska, Wyoming. I want to go back to Denver, back to Philadelphia. I’ve been to Southern California, and once was enough.
I’m a homebody. I like my South. I like my mountains and my oceans and these areas I know like the back of my hand, some of them with my eyes closed. But I also want to venture out and see other parts of the country and this trip to Texas is allowing me the chance to do that for several days.
So, if you’ve ever been to San Antonio, tell me what I should make sure not to miss. I’m not concerned about Sea World or Six Flags. I want real food, real places. If you’ve never been to Texas, or San Antonio, where would you like to go? Doesn’t have to be Texas. It can be anywhere. Where would you like to go? What city or state intrigues you?
I also want to throw in that I have a new release today from Ellora’s Cave, Trouble In The Making. It’s not cowboy related at all which is why it’s here at the end, but rather rock star and friends to lovers.
Johnny Trouble. He’s a commanding presence in leather and tattoos, both on stage and off. He’s had more than his fair share of groupies and lovers, but it’s time for a change and he reconnects with the one woman whose memory has driven him crazy since high school. Liz.
She’s a quiet, shy romance author who likes her comfort zones. But when Johnny comes back into her life after years of living in the spotlight, Liz’s private fantasies shift into overdrive and she nervously asks him to fulfill them.
Just one weekend is all she proposes, but the sparks flying between them when Johnny touches her aren’t temporary. She’s the particular brand of trouble he wants in his bed, bent over, or crawling all over him. Forever.
He just has to convince her by any means necessary…
