Celebrating Two Very Different Releases From Sandra Sookoo

Today on our Cyber Launch Party Blog, we're celebrating two new romances from Sandra Sookoo - a fun romantic comedy fantasy and a passionate historical romance.

Sandra Sookoo is a writer of romantic fiction. Her portfolio includes historical, contemporary, sci-fi and paranormal romances. She loves to blend genres and spice them up and often times will add humor as well.

After catching the writing bug at the young age of ten, she’s gone on to grow her unique writing style. She’s a regular contributor for the Paranormal Romantic's blog and has a great time keeping things interesting at the Believing is Seeing blog.

When not immersed in creating new worlds and interesting characters, Sandra likes to read, bake and travel. Her favorite place to spend vacation hours is Walt Disney World. It’s where dreams come true and the soul can play. That suits her just fine. Writing is her ultimate dream job.


A Holiday Magic Story

She's not your grandma's Tooth Fairy.

Three months have passed since Steve Compton's last visit to Crystal Falls. Now he's back, but far from pleased about it. Convinced there is more in the air than clean living, he's a journalist on the hunt for a story that'll launch his career into the stratosphere.

Zoe Nickles loves the small-town atmosphere, the people, and most especially the great hiding places in Crystal Falls. She's heard rumors about the magical aura in the tiny town, and when her powers come to fruition one June night, she knows the whispers are true. She's the Tooth Fairy--with a sexy new look!

But there's a problem: a nosy reporter is on Zoe's trail, with just enough street smarts and cynicism to thwart her ability to practice her newfound skills. Can she convince him Crystal Falls is harmless before he tells the world about the town's "unique" quality, or will Steve blab the news, putting Zoe and all the paranormal residents at risk?


CARIBBEAN HEAT by Sandra Sookoo

He needs control. She needs to lose it.

It's Carnival season on Tobago and everyone is playing out their fantasies.

Felicity Hartsford lives a sheltered life on Tobago, a tiny British protectorate in the Caribbean. The daughter of a sugarcane plantation owner, she feels stifled under the threefold bonds of running the estate, her father's illness, and her less-than-ideal engagement to a man she hardly knows.

Nathaniel Donovan's estate is a well-oiled machine compared to others on the island. Haunted by the death of his wife and child, the last thing he wants is to be caught up in the parties of the Carnival season, let alone a new relationship.

But the magic of Carnival can't be denied. Passions ignite and blaze into an inferno of need sparked by the warm, sultry nights of the Caribbean. Before they can stop it, Felicity and Nathaniel are swept away on a tide of desire and love. Can their budding love burn brighter than religious tensions and humanity's angst in order to survive the storm?

  19. Congratulations on the release of your books; hope you have a wonderful Cyber Launch party. Just remember there will be a cyber taxi to take you home if you imbibe too much celebratory cyber beverage!!

    Even though you write different types of books, does your creative muse ever say, enough is enough, and you can't write? If so, what do you do to get back on track?

    Both Midsummer Night's Steve and Caribbean Heat sound like good reads. Why the tooth fairy???

    Wishing you much success!
