Let's finish this series off with a bang this week. Revenge on Cupid was the last book in the Celtic Cupid trilogy and I think, finishes the series off perfectly... But how about you tell me what you think?
Her mind blanked. Time? She hadn’t even considered that. “Uh, say eleven?” Sunday morning. She didn’t want to upset his routine too much, but a need and yearning urged her to seek this connection.
“Perfect, I’ll be there,” he whispered over the line and for a crazy instant she was sure there was more to his promise. Her stomach dipped and wove.
Revenge on Cupid:
Sometimes magic isn’t enough.
After years of hiding, it’s finally Jake’s turn to find love… Or is it? Will Cupid’s arrow bite him or bounce off the woman who could complete his life?
Diocail, in the guise of Jake, must find his predestined mate and make her fall for him before his father will allow his return, but when Simone, is revealed as the one for him, it becomes clear that there is more than meets the eye.
Simone is hurt when long-term lover Nathan cheats on her, then does the unthinkable, and sacks her as well. An encounter with Jake fuels her desire, but she’s not willing to risk her emotions again. When a woman from Jake’s past, starts to mix things up, the situation goes from bad to worse.
Now Jake has to make Simone see that they have a future, and he has to deal with a deranged goddess—and all without the magic of Cupid.

In case you've missed all my posts, we're back!
We (Mr Nix and I) took 3 days to drive down. A nice chilled drive. The first day was the biggest and about 8 hours on the road, travelling down through Goondiwindi and onto Tamworth. We saw lots of areas that are so dry! Passing through Boggabilla was an eye opener and of course, lots of rocks everywhere, because there's just no grass due to the ongoing drought.
We passed through the edges of the outback. One great stop was at Moonie where we checked out the big red claw.
After a quick stop at the Golden Guitar and visitor information centre (and checking out the wax works) we hit the road again and headed to the Hunter Valley. There's a great big coal mine in the middle of the Upper Hunter and I won't say anything except the last time we ventured through Mussweelbrook it wasn't there and the scenery has changed a bit.
We reached our accomodation in Cessnock and headed out to try the Hanging Tree Vineyard. Needless to say, we've now signed up for a 6 monthly delivery of wine. Yummo!
Oh yes, if you happen to pop in, do say hi to Vodka, the resident dog!
Saturday morning, Mr Nix wanted to be on the road as early as possible so we agreed to leave our hotel about 6am. Expecting the drive to be taxing, it suprised both of us that we were parked in the ICC by 6.20am.
We carried all the goodies upstairs and once inside the venue (and let me tell you it was sweltering. Outside was 46 degrees C (114.8F!!) and inside with all the bodies was decidedly warm. I was there in my uniform and it took some doing to cool down. I can't imagine how the ladies in full ballgowns or the men in steampunk survived!
Once set up, the lovely readers came. In droves. I sold out of a couple of titles (The Celtic Cupid and Reunion Trilogy) which surprised me! I gave away TOFU's (squishy phone holders) and met so many people! I'm hoping some of them will follow my blog and newsletter after the event!
By 4pm we were ready to head back to the hotel. Once we'd parked the car, we hared upstairs out of the heat and back to shower and rest, because we also had the event at NOLA (after party) and that was a ballgown job!
It was still hot and I'm sure the sauna like atmosphere helped me drop kilograms :D I met lovely people there too, including Rena (EPA to Shannon Mayer) who was so nice!
The road home was fun. We passed a black London Cab heading onto the Harbour Bridge. Hubs was super worried about driving Gloria (his car) down there but she performed like a thoroughbred! We got over the bridge and found our way to the Pacific Highway and drove for about 6 hours to reach Coffs Harbour.
I asked to spend a night by the sea and hubs wanted to visit the Big Banana so we squeezed both in before jumping back on the road.
The beauty of driving, also meant we got a good look at things along the way. We were wondering how the land was faring after the massive bushfires throughout many states. As you can see nature takes it's course and in many sections there is already regrowth!
The one thing we did find a bit painful was all the works and people not driving to the road limits. I'm of the opinion they see them as a low starting point, but we stayed to the left and kept going until we reached Gatton. MIL's birthday was Tuesday so we got in at 41 degrees (105.8F) and had to waste time. So we headed to the pub where Mr Nix had a coke and I a wine. Sweetie that he is, I made for the bathroom and there it was, cold and inviting waiting for me.
We stayed at MIL's overnight and enjoyed Fish and Chips then were up... Friends were coming and going so we made our goodbyes at 9.30 and made it home by 11.30am
It's lovely to be away, but nicer to come back to your own pillow!
I promise to post more pics to Pinterest, so watch my board with interest!
