Today we have three fabulous authors visiting with us! Jess Dee, Lexxie Couper, and Vivian Arend! They’ve got new releases coming up – and it’s a series of books that take place in the same location. They’re a lot of fun and the books they write are hot – as you’ll see when you read the excerpts. Shew! There’s also a fourth connected book that is available for free right now. That’s right – free. And I, being the kind soul that I am, have conveniently provided a link for you. 😉 But the point is to see what the ladies have to say, and they’ve provided excerpts for all of us to read!
You. On an island. A warm, tropical breeze tickles your skin as the sun kisses every inch of your exposed flesh. Waves lap gently over the snow-white beach while a gorgeous bartender serves you yet another mouth-watering daiquiri.
Luxury surrounds you.
Swim. Snorkel. Scuba.
Hike. Stroll. Sunbathe.
Relax. Read. Recline.
Dance. Drink. Laugh.
Sound appealing? Then why not visit the brand new, five star luxury hotel, Bandicoot Cove on Bilby Island, just off the tropical coast of Queensland, Australia.
There’s something magical about the island. Perhaps it’s the sheer luxury of the resort. The escape from the daily grind of real life. Or maybe it’s all that intoxicating island air. Whatever it is, people tend to fall in love when they visit. And when they fall, it’s usually forever.
Now you can fall in love too. You see, the hotel is about to open its doors to the public, and in preparation for that big day, hotel manager, Kylie Sullivan is planning a soft opening. A trial run. A make-sure-everything-works-smoothly run.
You are invited to share in the magical moments of this special weekend. You may not be able to attend personally, but you can experience the magic of the Island through a brand new anthology by Jess Dee, Vivian Arend and Lexxie Couper called Bandicoot Cove.
Bandicoot Cove consists of three very hot novellas. (We’re talking steam-up-the- windows, wipe-me-down-with-ice hot.) Each novella is a contemporary, m-f-m ménage, and the books are being released through Samhain Publishing. Want to know the good
news? There’s a fourth book too. A short story that’s also a free read! And the short is a ménage a quattro, called Exotic Indulgence.
The four books stand alone, but the characters in all the stories know one another, so you’ll get the opportunity to meet the characters several times throughout all the books. If you’re going to read one anthology this season, make it’s one that’ll warm your heart…and your body!
We’ve included a little snippet from each novella just to whet your appetite.
Hope you enjoy them.
Lex, Viv and Jess
Paradise Found by Vivian Arend
(Releases 23 Aug at Samhain)
Fate is a wind that can change at the drop of a heart…
“Paige is cooking up a storm.”
Mason walked the length of the room with any hesitation, not stopping until he was pressed firmly against her.
“She always cooks up the most mouth-watering mischief.” He lifted her chin with his fingers and kissed her. A momentary buss on the lips, just enough for her to taste him, tease her senses. “What’s next on the menu? That’s what I want to know.”
He dipped his head again and took his time opening her lips to his caress. A series of small kisses along her jaw, a butterfly soft touch to the corner of her mouth. A tantalizing stroke of his tongue over her lower lip.
A low level of excitement and delight accompanied his teasing touch. She was totally surrounded, boxed in by two solid male torsos. Trent’s erection pressed hard into her right butt cheek, and the longer Mason kissed her, the more his interest rose as well. She tangled her fingers in his hair and held him tight. Twisted her hips slightly, rubbing both of them, slow and deliberate. She might be encircled, but she still had a say in this adventure. It looked as if there was no need to prolong the wait for one of her favorite parts.
Being totally cared for by two men. Four hands bringing her delight, stroking and guiding her pleasure in ways she’d never dreamed possible before getting involved with them. Paige pulled her lips free and Mason leaned his forehead against hers. Trent’s fingers caressed her hip slowly. They both waited, patiently. Time paused, their three bodies slowly becoming more attuned to each other as their breathing synchronized. Her anticipation rose—there was some specific mischief she had in mind.
Tropical Sin by Lexxie Couper
(Releases 6 Sep from Samhain)
It takes more than a rock star to rock your world. Sometimes you need a friend.
His hands roamed her torso, up to her throat, back down to her hips. He squeezed her arse cheeks before raking one hand down the back of her thigh and tugging her leg up. She willingly obeyed his unspoken direction, wrapping her leg around his hip to grind her pussy up and down his still-constrained cock.
“I want to make love to you, Mack.” His breath was ragged, his eyes ablaze. “Right now.” He slipped one hand under the hemline of her shirt, his fingers brushing her bare flesh beneath.
She sucked in a swift gasp, the contact somehow more electric, more arousing than any she’d ever had before.
Of course it is, McKenzie. This isn’t just anyone. This is Aidan. The guy’s had your heart in his pocket since you were kids. Even if you didn’t know it.
She whimpered, bringing her hand to his as she arched her back. She wanted him to touch her breasts. Not just touch them, but cup them, squeeze them. She wanted to feel the callused strength of his hands mold her soft flesh, hands skilled in extinguishing heat now on the verge of setting her on fire. She wanted to feel him possess her.
“Then what the hell are you waiting any longer for?” she asked, directing his hand up to her breast. Over it.
“Oh, God, McKenzie.” He moaned, his body stiffening as his fingers found her pleasure- swollen flesh.
He dragged his thumb over her rock-hard nipple, teasing it through the thin lace of her bra. It puckered harder to his touch, as if it too said, “Yes, why have you taken so long to do this?”
Her breaths grew shallow, more rapid with every stroke of his thumb pad. But it wasn’t enough. It was torture.
Like he always knew when she wanted popcorn at the movies, like he always knew when she needed chocolate, like he always always knew when she needed to hear his voice and called her from the fire station, now it seemed he knew exactly what she wanted him to do to her.
God, it was wonderful. More than wonderful. It was amazing. Sublime. It was…
Right. So goddamn right.
Island Idyll by Jess Dee
(Releases 20 Sep, from Samhain)
Adolescent fantasies can grow into very adult realities.
His long, slim fingers trailed ever so lightly against the sides of her breasts, making her nipples bead and her knees weaken.
“Have to touch you,” he said on another growl. His thumbs stroked her nipples over her dress, once, twice. And then again.
Dear God. It was too much, too exquisite. She groaned in his arms, writhing against him.
Laughter and chatter erupted in bursts mere meters away, and she tensed immediately. “Oh—”
He cut her off with a soothing, “Shhhh.”
The relative darkness might cloak them in privacy, but they still stood in the open where anyone could walk past. A thrill shot through her. “Touch me,” she whispered. “Please.”
Hot breaths of air tickled her neck and he moved his arm down until he found the hemline of her barely-there dress. His fingers slipped beneath it. Silver heat prickled her leg as his hand feathered over her skin.
She held her breath. Couldn’t exhale. Forgot how.
He brushed against her thong.
“Ah!” Her exclamation was a breathless gasp. If she’d been aroused before Josh arrived, she was a livewire now. “More,” she begged shamelessly, and widened her stance to give him easier entry. She needed his touch. Needed it more than she needed her next breath.
“Si,” he whispered, his voice rougher than she expected. But then her own voice had come out a good three tones lower than usual, the result of the carnal desire that held her transfixed. He thrust against her ass, pressing his erection into the cleft, her dress and his pants a sensual barrier she’d as soon weren’t there.
Each author is also very generously giving away a backlist ebook. So what’d you think of the excerpts. Have you ever read any of these authors before? Or taken a trip Down Under, to a place like Bandicoot Cove 😉 ? I’d love to visit that continent some day!
Got any questions for Jess, Lexxie, or Vivian? We’re going to have three winners, so three of you are going to be very lucky readers!
WOW! Those all sound amazine I can’t wait to read them all!! I have read books from all these amazing authors and was also very lucky to have met them at RT this year 😀 I have not been to Bandicoot Cove but have been to Australia and look forward to returning next year for a visit maybe I’ll book a stay at the resort 😀 This looks like an amazing new series ladies! I look forward to it. xoxoxo Thanks for the great post Limecello!
Dawn, the first commenter, and no one replied to you?
Gee, that’s bad. I’m sorry.
And you know there’ll always be a place for you at the resort.
Hmm, just wondering what your hubby would say if you fell passionately in love with a guy (or two) while there?
Just in case everyone wanted to get a better look at Bandicoot Cove…
Shall be back in a tick with more mayhem. Promise.

Three books from three of my favorite ladies. Wow! Its already here! Congrats on the releases ladies. These are perfect for the late summer reading list.
Question for all of them…who thought up the idea for this series?
LOL Aw Marika…*smooch* You are too lovely
I can claim coming up with the name of the island (Bilby Island) and the resort (Bandicoot Cove) but as for the idea for the series I’m saying it was Viv and Jess 🙂
Sounds like some great reads, can’t wait to dig into them.
Shelly, we can’t wait for them to release. Hope you enjoy them.
Yep, Marika, Viv and I had discussed writing something together for a while. But the actual idea of Bandicoot Cove came from a talk between all of us. A real fun, naughty talk.
Have already pre ordered these books…..SO EXCITED!
Us too, Sherry.
I can’t wait for these books!. I have read other stuff from these authors thats why I’m so excited to read these!
Did you enjoy doing this project & would you ladies do another series together?
elaing8, you have to know we love hearing things like this.
And Australia is indeed a dream place to vacation
Amy, I’m pretty certain Viv and Jess and I are planning many many series together from now on *grin*
Actually (and shhh, you didn’t hear it from me) there’s another three Bandicoot Cove books in the works.
Oh and Viv and I are going to write a…wait, can’t tell you yet. But I can tell you about the amazing series Jess and I….wait….maybe I shouldn’t say anything yet…. 😉
Lex – no no no!!! You tease! You can’t drop such a blatant hint and leave it like that! Spill! Your secret will be safe with us. Pinky swear!
And… you wouldn’t want to annoy or anger your readers, would you? *blinks innocently* … *angelface* 😀
These books have been on my wishlist since the first time I read about them.
I have read books from all three ladies and loved them all.
Australia is my dream vacation.I hope to go there some day..maybe I’ll find a Bandicoot Cove 😀
Ack, left the reply to your comment under Amy’s comment. Sorry.
*Way too early for comment responses *
elaing8, if you ever get here, let me know. There is the most gorgeous beach just down the road from me with the HOTTEST lifeguards… *sigh*
Amy J. We had a blast writing this series. It was fun to not only see each other’s stories progress as we wrote them, but getting to sneak bits of our characters into the other books? A total hoot!
And shhhhhhhhhh but there might be plans for future mischief together. 😉
Hehe, good morning Jess, and Lexxie! (Hi Viv!) Thanks so much, ladies, for guesting with us! My question is when do I get to meet you! I only barely got to chat with Vivian in June, right? Sad!
Also, these books. Want! 😀
Happy upcoming release day, to all of you!
(Oh and Jess – thanks so much for saying I could mention my charity post. Heh – obviously I didn’t here :X hoping everyone knows about it already… but if not ideally this comment suffices! And thanks again SO MUCH for donating! <3)
Heee, I will be at RT2012 if that helps? We can crash tackle each other in the hotel foyer if you’re going to be there (and I’ll bring a packet of Tim Tams just for you 😀 )
Lexxie – eeeeee. I SO!!! want to go! Don’t know if I can though 🙁
And, I’m actually not a huggy person. *shh* but for you? I’d totally tackle pounce you. After all, you were the VERY FIRST … and in fact ONLY person ever – EVER – to send me Tim Tams! And TWICE!!! <3 <3 <3 Obviously this has garnered you a "favorite person" spot in my book! 😉
And… don't think if/when I meet you, I'm going to grill you on all these hints you're dropping!!!!
You’re going to RT2012? I’M going to RT2012!!
Look out, world, the Aussie and the Canuck, together again. There will be mayhem.
I think it is awesome that you have posted your wonderful awareness of our brothers and sister in all their troubles in Somalia. My faily being me, my Hubby, and both our adult children pooled our resources, and donated to the Red Cross along with our monthly donation.
You rock Limecello!
I’ve read all these authors and ouwl love to win one of their books..thank you for the contest!
Wow – Darcy, well welcome! And thank you 🙂 I hope you’re okay with me emailing you…
Doesn’t Bandicoot Cove look awesome? I wish it was real! And that I could go there. 😉
What Lime is doing is amazing.
It just goes to show, one person can make a difference!
Oh these sound great! I have read Vivian’s work, I don’t think I have the others yet. I will be though. I do have the free read down loaded waiting for me to get the time to read it. There are just so many good books to read and not enough time. Has anyone figured out how to not need sleep? No? Crap!
manning_j2004 at yahoo dot com
June, darn it, I try the not sleeping thing all too often, coz I just have to finish a page, er chapter, ok, the whole damn book. And then I am ratty and crabby as anything the next day.
But if you find a way, please, let me know.
Five cups of coffee by 10am, three cups before 7pm. No sleep 🙂 Of course, you can’t exactly do anything because you can’t be hold your hands still long enough… *grin*
I haven’t read anything from these authors, but would absolutely love too! Saw Jess Dee on the NNN site and she’s a hoot!
Why thank you, Kim.
Kim, you have to read Jess’s Going All In and Viv’s Claiming Derryn (my fav books from both). They are fantastic!
Can’t wait to read your three stories! You are some of my favourite auhtors!
Flattery will get you everywhere, Claudia.
Thank you. That’s a huge compliment to all of us.
Oh, Claudia…you know how to make an author smile 🙂 Thank you so much.
Jess, Viv, and Lexxie–I cannot wait for these books to be released! Bandicoot Cove sounds like such a lovely getaway 😉 You three create magic, you know!
And Lime, honestly, these three are some of the worst teases EVER! It’s painful! But only because you know it’s going to be so amazing and you can’t have it NOW!
you know you helped in creating the magic, don’t you?
Jess, it’s all you!! (And Viv and Lexx!) I can’t believe it’s almost here! YAY!
Teases? Us? Naaaaaahh 😉
Oooo This books look amazing! I can’t wait to read them!
Hey Kari, hope you enjoy them.
I just finished Exotic Indulgence this morning. I absolutely could not put it down. I especially loved Hemi, he sounded like a big truck of a man and I just love that! I’m a fan of all three authors and having you all together like that was amazing and made for one very wild ride. I can’t wait to read the other stories in the Bandicoot Cove series. I’m booking a trip in my head right now!
Liz…You know I’m just gonna have to hug you now, don’t you?
All of these books sound great (and love the covers:)! Thanks for the awesome giveaway.
Thanx for the compliments – and it’s our pleasure.
I love the excerpts I can’t wait to read them
Hope you enjoy them!

These books sound god. Can’t wait to read them. I read books for one of the authors and have enjoyed them.
Well, Vanessa, hopefully, after you’ve read all four books you’ll enjoy books from all three of us.
