Caribbean Casanova Has Arrived

Release day is here! If you pre-ordered Caribbean Casanova, it's already in your ereader, ready to help you escape to Anguilla for a little fun Under The Caribbean Sun.

Romance Book Samples has the first chapter here...

I'm blogging at Romance Reader at Heart about my favorite way for a story to start. It Starts With a Kiss...

There are three new reviews today - don't forget to comment on the blog tour for a chance to win Amazon GCs. (Or B&N if you Nook like me, I'm open) If the book does really well, I'm going to give away even more than promised!

Caribbean Casanova has everything you want; a gratifying love story between two interesting characters, a beautiful tropical setting, witty dialog, and a surprise ending that will bring a tear to your eye and leave you satisfied. ~ Slick, Guilty Pleasures

Caribbean Casanova is a fun and sexy read.   ~ Tiffany Talks Books

Caribbean Casanova is a light, breezing story about two people that aren’t meant for each other but in the end find that they are in more ways than one. Also, remember to NOT believe everything that you hear. It might cost you the love of your life. :) ~ Harlie's Books

Kismet Reboot

The site that had been hosting my free read, Kismet, disappeared. Thankfully, some of my local writerly peeps have a site, Romancing the Genres, and they're putting it up over there for ever more. It's a super short from years back, but it still makes me smile.

Kismet - Emma Riley hasn't seen Colin Davis since he gave her her first kiss, and walked out of her life. But since they were only fourteen and his family moved across the country, he can't really be blamed. Can fate, first love, and a warm smile convince Emma kismet does exist?

Casanova Tour, day 4

Cute ad, right? My editor just emailed to say Samhain Publishing made this for Fiction Vixen this month.

Today We Love Kink reviewed Caribbean Casanova. I always get nervous when my schmexy romance gets reviewed at a site that likes the soopah-sexy stuff. But I need to relax, because Harm & Holly seem to have the sexy handled. Day-yum, this review quote made me blush!

"In my opinion you really must read this book, but a fair word of advice. You might want to have a clean pair of panties near by because your are most definitely going to end up wet !!!"

Sharing Links and Wisdom -- "It’s humorous, sexy, and interesting. The characters were amazing and... I want to go on my own Caribbean island adventure now."

Caribbean Casanova Tour Two-fer

Two reviews for Caribbean Casanova today :) Funny bit...one mentioned f/f and I did the whole funky face 'say what?' before I remembered...oh, yeah. LOL.

My Reading Obsession :: Jenna Bayley-Burke gives us sex, sex and more sex with some sexual tension thrown in and even some solo play, f/f, and voyeurism to round out the smorgasbord of titillation ( I always wanted to use that word LOL) on offer in Caribbean Casanova.

Love Triumphs Past and Present :: If you like take-charge heroines and heroes with modern day flaws, you’ll like Caribbean Casanova. It’s a quick, fun read that covers some modern crises not usually found in contemporary romance.

Caribbean Casanova Tour Day 2

I Love Lady Porn Caribbean Casanova took a trip to I Love Lady Porn today. I can't even imagine the kind of searches this blog will wind up on now, but I have to admit, I kinda like their logo.

The review gave me four of those and the quote, "The ending was Spatular!" Which I am choosing to believe means spectacular.

The same review was posted on My Book Boyfriends, which is a blog name I can tell my mother about.

Healing and Happenings

I've been out of commission for the last week, talking the angry intestine into calming down like a nice organ. It is listening more to Cipro and Flagyl than to me, but I'll take it so long as we can go back to ignoring one another like most bodily functions.

With Caribbean Casanova downloading worldwide (clever wordplay there) next week, I have lots planned to make sure Harm and Holly are stuffed into as many e-readers as possible. Today begins with my homage to brothers with a Male on Monday post at The Pink Heart Society.

Check out Maggie's Meanderings for a new review of Caribbean Casanova. "Jenna's trademarked humor does a great job of turning the world upside down like a snow globe you shake every once in a while to see things in a different light." Comment for a chance to win an Amazon gift certificate.

Caribbean Crush

It's official. I just signed the contract with Samhain Publishing Ltd. for Caribbean Crush, Under The Caribbean Sun #3

Write On!

That's not even a pun. It's what I have to do.

Fingers crossed Caribbean Casanova does well, so I get to spend more time writing the series. I'd love to spin stories around Janny, Falco, Declan and a few others y'all haven't met yet.

Jenna On Tour

This isn't like Beiber tour dates that get cancelled. This is the real deal, peeps. No, I'm not going to torture you with a concert - even my kids tell me to stop singing and they love me. But I will be out and about town. Well, my town. And the internet. Okay, so I really like to play with blog titles.

I arranged some appearances myself, but most of it was put together by the lovely Goddess Fish Promotions. Let's keep our fingers crossed all this exposure equals lots of book sales. I love writing the Under the Caribbean Sun series, and a good reception of Caribbean Casanova would let me keep telling those stories.

Library Journal Liked Caribbean Casanova

CaribbeanCasanova030113 Xpress Reviews: E Originals | First Look at New Books, March 1, 2013 Library Journal liked Caribbean Casanova :) Made my whole day :: "A good read for the beach this summer."

Bayley-Burke, Jenna.
Caribbean Casanova.
Samhain. (Under the Caribbean Sun, Bk. 2).
 Mar. 2013.
135p. ebk.
ISBN 9781619215771.
EPUB $3.50.

In her latest “Under the Caribbean Sun” adventure (after Caribbean Christmas), Burke has brought the Prinsen brothers (Johannes and Harmannus) back to the island of Anguilla, along with Saskia and her business partner Holly Hansen...

Verdict Where else would one want to be on a cold winter’s day but dreaming of the warm Caribbean sun on the island of Anguilla? While this story is short, the author has done a good job of developing these characters and creating an all-around good tale, with lots of spicy sensuality and graphic language. A good read for the beach this summer.

Thank you so much to Phyllis Goodman, Clermont Cty. P.L., OH for the great review!!
