Any Given Sunday

Well. I can’t decide if it’s one of the happiest days of my life or a bittersweet one. Today marks the release of Any Given Sunday, the last book in my Wild Irish series. I have to say these books have been a year and a half labor of love for me and I’m so very, very sad to see it end.

At the same time, I’m feeling such an amazing sense of accomplishment. I did it! I’m not going to lie…there were a couple of times when I worried about being able to finish! LOL. Waiting for Wednesday and Any Given Sunday were particularly difficult stories for me to write. I love romantic comedy–humor comes to me easily so I sort of breezed through Ruby Tuesday, Friday I’m in Love and Saturday Night Special.

Any Given Sunday, like Waiting for Wednesday, was a bit heavier, the emotions a bit tougher to tackle. My editor remarked that Sunday was easily the most emotionally intense story in the bunch. I think a lot of that had to do with the fact that I was just so sad to say goodbye to the Collins clan! Sean, like Riley, was a favorite character of mine, so I wanted to make sure he got his happily-ever-after. And, of course, there was the little mystery surrounding that fight in Come Monday that had to be wrapped up! 🙂

So…here it is. Any Given Sunday. Finally! I hope you enjoy the story.

Wild Irish, Book Seven

The child who is born on the Sabbath day, is bonny and blithe and good and gay.

Sean Collins is happy working at the family pub and sharing a house with the woman of his dreams. He and Lauren are equals in every way, including in bed, where they burn the sheets. Life is good. Even if he must hide a couple of secrets to keep it that way.

Lauren is madly in love with Sean. They share everything—almost. She can’t deny sensing…something. A certain feeling when she, Sean and their friend Chad are all together. But she doesn’t press. How can she when she’s not being completely forthright herself?

Chad is feeling pretty miserable, and renting a room in Sean and Lauren’s home has only made it worse. In a house filled with secrets, Chad’s are doozies.

When an opportunity arises to explore their deep desires, the trio plunges into a sex-filled, emotionally charged ménage. Long-buried feelings are revealed, changing their lives irrevocably. Whether for better or worse, only Sean, Chad and Lauren can decide.

    Alright!!!! I can’t wait to read this one. Like you, I will be sad to see the Collins family stories end but maybe you can do a catch up short story in the future. I can hope anyway.
