Are you looking for a luxury island getaway?

If you are looking for a getaway like this, I have just the place for you.

A brand new, luxury resort, set on an exclusive island just off the tropical Queensland Coast in Australia.

Know what the good news is? For one weekend, you can stay there…for free.

Sound too good to be true?

It’s not.

The Island is called Bilby Island, and the resort Bandicoot Cove.

And you can find it at Samhain Publishing in August and September!


Let me clear things up for you.

Bandicoot Cove is an anthology of four books written by myself, Lexxie Couper and Vivian Arend. The anthology is set around the soft opening of a luxury hotel. What is a soft opening you ask? Well, it’s the practice run before the hotel throws open its doors to the general public. The make-certain-everything-runs-smoothly run.

The manager of the hotel, Kylie Sullivan, has the mammoth task of ensuring everything is perfect. She’s invited her close friends and family to the soft opening – all expenses paid. All these lucky guests need do is come to the island and have a wonderful time. Oh – and maybe fall in love in the process.

Know what else Kylie has? Wait for it…

…A FREE BOOK! Yes, on the 23rd of August (release day for the first two books), Kylie’s book, Exotic Indulgence, releases as a free read. This short story is a…wait for it…MENAGE A QUATTRO. And it is scalding hot. Written by Lexxie, Viv and myself, you know you’re gonna want to download it the minute it releases.

On that same day, Viv’s book “Paradise Found” releases.

Two weeks later, Sep 6th,  (yes, I’m sorry, but you will have to wait two agonizing weeks), Lexxie’s book, “Tropical Sin” releases. And then, yet another two weeks after that, Sep, 20th, the fourth book in the anthology, Island Idyll,  (my book) releases.

Oh, did I mention that Books 2, 3 and 4 are all menage a trois? Seriously people, you wanna stay on this Island. As Kylie says, ” “There’s something about the air out here. The freedom. It’s like magic, intoxicatingly so. It makes you do things you’d never do back home.” 🙂

So wanna hear more about Island Idyll? (Coz you know I’m dying to tell you…).

Here you go:


Adolescent fantasies can grow into very adult realities.

Bandicoot Cove, Book 4

Sienna James has come to Bandicoot Cove to mourn the end of her eight-year relationship with Ben Cowley. The last person she expects to meet is the star of every one of her high school fantasies.

Joshua Lye is not only as appealing as he was in high school, he reveals she was the main feature in his adolescent wet dreams. As kids they never got it together. But they’re adults now, and there’s nothing keeping them apart.

When Ben arrives at the resort determined to win Sienna back, finding another man in her bed kind of throws a spanner in the works. But he isn’t deterred. Rather than admit defeat, he comes up with an alternative plan: Let Sienna sleep with both men—at the same time. Then she can make an informed decision as to which man she wants.

Sienna shouldn’t want to go through with this shockingly sexy plan, but she does. Desperately. Except after the sexual storm passes, she could have it all…or be left holding an empty heart.

Warning: Contains a suggestion beyond risqué, a solution beyond orgasmic, and two men who know how to play dirty. Really, really dirty.

ISLAND IDYLL: An excerpt

“My room is just down there.” She pointed, her voice breathless.

Ah. A beachside bungalow. Figured. Kylie would have saved the best for her best friends. His own suite was situated in the staff quarters. Nothing to sneeze at, but a million miles away from here. “Condoms are in my room,” he told her, wondering why the fuck he didn’t carry one around in his pocket at all times.

New rule. From this second on always carry a condom. Always. No question.

Her lips curved into a sexy grin. “I have some.”

He faltered midstep. “You do?”

“There’s a box in the bathroom. Compliments of the hotel.”

“So, they’re not yours?”

She shook her head.

Unquestionable relief stole through him. They weren’t hers. Which meant she hadn’t come here with the intention of having sex.

“I didn’t think to bring any,” she confessed. Her lips twitched as she looked on ahead, steering him towards her bungalow. “I don’t usually use condoms with my vibrator.”

Josh tripped. Over his own feet. Fuck, she hadn’t even blushed when she’d said that.

Sienna turned to steady him. “You okay?”

Christ, the way her eyes danced, mischief painted all over her delectable face, her freckles standing out… “You said that on purpose,” he accused. “Just to get a reaction out of me.”

Why on earth had he ever thought her eyes were the color of a summer sky? Right now they looked black. Her pupils were enormous, dark spheres rimmed with navy.

“Did I get a reaction?” she asked with the tiniest hint of a smirk.

Jesus, what happened to the naïve kid he’d known in school? “Did you want one?”

She shrugged sweetly. “Only if it promises more satisfaction than my vibrator.”


He couldn’t take another second of her teasing. Of her subtle scent that drifted through his nose with hints of cinnamon. Of her creamy white skin, so silky, just begging to be touched. He couldn’t take one more second.

With more speed than he knew he possessed, he backed her up against the trunk of a palm tree, stepped in close—so close she’d have no doubt of the satisfaction his response could provide—and slanted his mouth over hers.


(Looking forward to August yet?)

    Since I live in Qld, it seems I could be among the first to find myself on Bilby Island. I can dream can’t I??

    • Ooh, Mary… I bet you’d love visiting Bandicoot Cove. Question is, are you ready to inhale the air there? It makes you do crazy things…

  2. That’s it. Tease us and it’s a long time until August! And then wait two weeks for the next book and then another two weeks! You do know that this is cruel and unusual punishment. The books sound great but it’s a long time to August!

  4. Ok ladies, Roadtrip!!

    Seriously, congrats to Jess, Lexxie and Viv!! Can’t wait to read this series 😉


    • Gigi, Jess’s story is a SCORCHER, and Viv’s is so damn hot. I’m so excited for August I want to burst 🙂

    • Jess Dee Says:

      Lol, yeah Gigi and Lex’s story is not hot at all. No lip smacking, mouth drooling, sweat inducing threesome sex.
      Disappointing, I know, but isn’t that what you’d expect from a Lexxie Couper menage.

  5. Yes, i’m sure none of them are hot *snort*…from what you all have shared so far it should be a scorching August and September 😉
