We all had loads of fun with the Trouble with Spells blog tour and enjoyed Vance far more than we should have by just reading the book. Most of you must have thought that it was the end for some time but your prayers for more Vance have been heard. And due to numerous requests, we are BACK! Guess, what were back with?
Lacey is such a sweetheart! ❤ So much so that today she’s going to dish about something that is going to make all of you squeal. She has a guest post prepared for today…. (all that she has written down is in bold)
Thanks so much for hosting me again!
Location, Location, Location!
I’ve slept in Vance’s bed.
Ha, ha! I bet that got your attention! But really, it’s true…I have. I’ve also taken a nap in Portia and Shelly’s bed, but that didn’t sound nearly as exciting!
One of the things I love about The Demon Kiss is that the story travels over international borders toPuerto Peñasco,Mexico, a.k.a. Rocky Point as it’s known to most travelers. Rocky Point is a favorite vacation spot for my family and we’ve stayed at a couple of different places down there, but our favorite by far has been the Sonoran Sea Resort.
My dad had reserved us a room at the Sonoran Sea Resort. He said he felt better about us staying someplace with on-site security. We pulled up at the towering ten-story hotel and checked in.
Our condo was a spacious three bedroom deluxe suite on the sixth floor and was lavishly decorated in a palm tree theme. There was a sage green down sectional at one end of the room with a large custom made entertainment center along with an entire wall of windows that led out to the balcony.
At the other end of the room was the kitchen, complete with granite counter tops and furnished with all the necessary appliances. The adjoining dining room had a beautiful glass topped table with plush dining chairs.
The master bedroom was gorgeous, with a tall, four-poster, king-sized canopy bed. It was so high, a stool was placed next to it to use to climb up on the bed. The room came with its own master bath complete with a Jacuzzi tub.
The secondary bedrooms also had king beds and shared a bathroom. It was decided that Vance and Brad would take those rooms, while the two of us girls would share the master suite.
We put our luggage away and headed out onto the huge patio that overlooked the immaculate grounds of the resort below us and then out into the beautiful Sea of Cortez.
“This is great!” I said, placing my hands on the wrought iron rails and taking in the view.
“I agree,” Vance said, wrapping his arms around my waist and leaning his head against mine.
I actually stayed in the particular condo I described, and it’s fabulous! We request it specifically when we go to stay. It’s right on the ocean and the view is amazing. I could honestly live there, spending my day snorkeling in the bath-like waters for hidden sea treasures.
I also thought it would be a very romantic location for a couple of people in love, so I was sure to incorporate some of those wonderful, hand-in-hand, beach strolls into the story as well. And of course, you can’t have a story without a little authentic, atmospheric location thrown in, so I chose a favorite restaurant of ours too, The Friendly Dolphin.
The place was rich with atmosphere. Spanish tile covered the floors, and the walls were painted with bright colors and decorated with all sorts of Mexican and seafaring artifacts. A talented mariachi band wandered about the room singing for the patrons sitting at the tables, who would in turn tip them generously.
While we waited for our food, another man came by the table selling long-stemmed roses.
“Flowers for your pretty ladies?” the man asked in slightly broken English.
“Absolutely,” Vance replied and fished out his wallet, Brad doing the same. “I’ll take twelve,” he added with a smile.
The man’s face lit up into a thousand watts as he realized he had hit a jackpot. He handed Vance a dozen roses wrapped in clear cellophane.
“For my beautiful lady,” Vance said in a whisper close to my ear as he handed me the roses.
“Thank you. They’re wonderful.” I accepted them with a smile, and he placed a kiss on my cheek.
“Yes, but they pale in comparison to you.” He reached over to hold my hand, softly chuckling over the blush that was now spreading across my face.
Ha! Vance never does anything small, does he? The rose guy always makes a bundle off of us because we always go on dates with our significant others to this restaurant. But nothing beats getting flowers from my hubby while eating good food together and watching the sun set over the marina.
I hope you enjoy the little vacation that this story takes you on. I know I did and I hope to return again and again!
