I got back late last night from a trip to Mexico! I'm exhausted, but it was well worth it. I went to a spa in the mountains in a little town called Ixtapan de la Sal.
This area is gorgeous, and very different from other places I've been to in Mexico. The terrain is incredibly lush and green, a little bit of tropics mixed with pine trees. Flowers everywhere and birds singing-peaceful and lovely. I spent four days swimming in the pools, soaking in the jacuzzi, which was in this lush grotto and became my favorite spot. Lots of spa time-too much, actually. Who ever thought I could overdose on spa time? But there were daily massages, reflexology, facials, pedicure, hair treatments...okay, I'm really not complaining, but next time I think I'll forgoe a few spa treatments to get in a little more pool time.
This was also a very romantic-and sexy-spot and has inspired all kinds of story ideas. That jacuzzi grotto will definitely show up in one of my stories, maybe two. On the flight home I was already formulating an idea. Of course, with my current deadlines, I don't know when I'll have time to write anything else, but this story is nagging at me, and I already know my characters. They'll start talking to me soon and then I'll have to write this one whether I have time or not!
I don't have a title yet, but there are scenes happening in my head...two people who come to this resort, each by themselves. They meet, the chemistry is intense, stunning, impossible to deny. Of course, my male character is always important, and he's already fully formed in my head. One of those really beautiful bad boys with a goatee and tattoos, but smart, educated, and with a sensual sensibility about everything-always a lethal combination for me. I can see him already, know exactly what he looks like, know the texture and scent of his skin. He'll have a tiger on his shoulder, done in classic Japanese style, a symbol of power. And that power will translate into the bedroom. This story will definitely have some kink in it-something about can't be any other way...
Ah, I'm getting carried away already-my deadlines may have to wait!

    Hey, I just got back from Mexico too! Not quite an upscale spa, but Playacar near Playa del Carmen. Don't you just wish you could stay for a few months??? Sigh.

    Wow I'm major jealous. I need a trip to Mexico...

    The spa sounds wonderful I will have to check it out.

    One of the books I currently have under contract was the same way as your story. I was supposed to be writing the final novella for WHAT SHE CRAVES but I couldn't because another story kept overtaking my mind. I wrote the pesky novella in a month. left it in draft form and then moved on to CHECKMATE my final novella in my antho. Maybe you can do the same.
