The Tourist is released on 28 Feb - next Monday *ulp* - and I'm pleased to see it's already had a good reception in pre-release reviews.
BLURB: Visiting isn't a science, at least not for me. It's just what I do. Not that I mind, though. It's not a bad thing, you understand, to find yourself in someone else's body, stepping into a hot shower stark-naked and sporting a decent-sized morning wood.
Ace is a tourist. A spirit who spends his time visiting the lives of others for entertainment and sexual satisfaction. He can't make anyone do anything they aren't willing to do—but he is able to push them to their personal limits.
He's currently visiting Dan and his lover, Ricky—a couple struggling with jealousy and words left unsaid. Emboldened by Ace, Dan becomes more sexually aggressive, a pleasant surprise for Ricky. But when an abusive ex threatens their newfound happiness, how far will Ace want to get involved? Will his fascination with the couple's sexual games tempt him to protect them from a very real physical danger?

While the sex scenes are very hot, the story is about so much more. It truly shows that we are who we are due to our circumstances and the experiences that we’ve had. I found myself contemplating what made me who I am today, something that I never expected to happen after reading an erotic novel.
Plus reviews at Good Reads have been really encouraging :).
Even more exciting (?!), it's already had a showing in the Carina Press Top 5, from pre-order alone. It's ok, no danger of getting big-headed, because by the time anyone clicks this seductive BUY LINK, the ratings will have shifted again LOL.
AND AND AND - which is the main reason I snuck online today - you can win a free copy over the next few days.
Chris at Stumbling Over Chaos is hosting it at one of her delightful giveaways, pop over there and log your interest by Feb 25 (Friday).
And in March I'll be over at GoodReads featuring the book - and myself *blush* - and I'll be bound to get light-headed and offer free giveaways galore :). More details will follow, and I hope some people will come over and say Hi!
