Pleasure Island blurb:
Chelsea Hunter didn't come to the resort looking for sex. Jake Davis intends to change her mind. Will they be able to turn up the heat, or will their visit to Pleasure Island leave them cold?
After finalizing her divorce, Chelsea Hunter came to the resort island of Paradise for some peace and quiet so she could figure out what her next step would be. She hadn’t expected to find herself at an exotic hotel dedicated to pleasures of the flesh. Too bad she doesn’t want sex.
Jake Davis is back in Paradise after visiting a year ago when his own marriage fell apart. This time his fantasy is to guide a woman through her sexual journey. He hadn’t counted on being paired with the only woman in Paradise who prefers privacy over pleasure!
Will Jake be able to discover what Chelsea truly needs, or will their journey to Paradise remainunfulfilled?

"While Chelsea and Jake figure that out, let me tell you a little story about a girl on her journey to publishing. Hmm...Not sure I can make it as spicy as Chelsea and Jake's story but about twelve years ago, I had a health scare that prompted me to take the reins in my life and live it to the fullest. And that meant setting the goal of not only writing a book, but getting it published. Now the first couple of books I wrote are sitting in a file somewhere on the hard drive of my computer. Probably best they never see the light of day.) But like any great athlete (like I used to be) you have to start somewhere. You know - begin with simple rolls and cartwheels before you move onto the harder skills like flips and stuff. (ew *shudder* I just used simple jargon to describe a sport and career I participated in for 25 years!)
When I wasn't getting anywhere with publishing that first horrid book, I emailed one of my favorite authors, Eloisa James, to ask some advice and this led me down the right path...
1. In 2010, I joined the Romance Writers of America, then I registered for their annual conference, went to Florida (first big trip alone since kiddos were born) and met some wonderful writers who are now my friends.
2. In 2011 was asked to join a group of fellow romance authors and met some wonderful people who helped in my quest to be published. I learned about other publishing houses out there I hadn't heard of yet.
3. Three short stories were accepted and published as ebooks. Two novels have been contracted and will be released in the new year. If you want to hear more about it, click the link: http://kelliekamryn.blogspot.com/2011/12/holiday-message.html
4. Couldn't afford to go to RWA 2011, so went instead to the Moonlight and Magnolias Conference in Atlanta, Georgia. I reconnected with my friends in person, made new ones, and met Pamela (who invited me to be part of this blog hop), and had a fantastic time! I, also, got to meet Eloisa James again, go to her book signing, and have lunch with her and the other ladies who used to be on the bulletin board along with Julia Quinn. Pamela says, "And this girl can dance!"
These are just the highlights of my journey. Let's not gloss over all the hard work I put into my books, the nail nibbling sessions when I waited for my queries to come back with a yay or nay, the blog tours, and the article writing that all goes into it. Do I enjoy every second? Mostly. Some days my plate is so full, I wonder if I haven't bitten off more than I can chew. But if you're going to follow a dream, then you have the guts to muck it out as you're living it. Life isn't all champagne and roses. (Come to think of it, I can't remember the last time I had roses on my table, and it has been months since I've sipped a decent glass of champagne.) Among the shining moments, there are times when you're wondering what you're doing and if it'll be worth it. But when I wake up every day, with a story in my head, and people telling me I can do it - well, it's a grand day indeed.
Now tell me a little about your journey, leave your email addy and you could win a copy of my book!"
