PAR FOR THE COURSE by Jenna Bayley-Burke

Magazine columnist Jillian Welch has one assignment to show her readers the golf course is the news single’s bar, and show an old flame all the ways she’s changed. Unless she hasn’t changed at all…

Warning: Fore! This title contains explicit sex, and a love story hazardous to your hankie supply. Oh, and exploding toads.

Now in Print!

I'm very excited because my second book was just released in print! Compromising Positions is very different from my first release, The Kitten Club. CP is lighter in tone and has loads of humor. Here's the blurb:
Meet Crystal, Patsy and Maureen – three friends in their forties trying to run the obstacle course of mid-life.
Crystal thinks she has the perfect marriage until she starts fantasizing about a handsome coworker. But when she suspects her husband is having more than fantasies about another woman, she digs in her heels and fights for what’s hers.
Patsy discovers her Neanderthal husband Bud having sex with his bowling buddy and wearing women’s underwear. When Bud tries to take more than his fair share in the divorce, Patsy sets out to humiliate him into submission.
Maureen has enough trouble trying to survive life with her rebellious teen-aged daughter Rhianna. When she starts dating the teacher Rhianna has a secret crush on, the fur flies.

Hop over to my website and check out my July contest. I love to give things away!
