Seducing Celestine - coming November 2007- love, lust and payback
When the hot, sexy guy intimately caressing Celestine in her dreams turns out to be a real life man in her bed is it moonlight madness or is she just one very lucky girl? Should she be offended this man just wants a moonlight ride with any available woman or let him take her as her heart desires?
The woman in Nick's arms is different to any he has ever tasted. Seducing Celestine into submission becomes one sexy challenge he cannot resist. But someone else wants Celestine and it has nothing to do with sex.
Can lust be love? Can she stay out of trouble long enough to find out?

While I love the Laws, I had to stop and consider one of your definitions: "*Pommy shower :
using deodorant instead of taking a shower"

It is a sad, sad day when a culture actually has to coin a phrase for something like this. It tells me far too many people are smelling to high heaven over there for someone to have to define the practise. Must suffer much DairyAir, poor Helen and AJ.

I'm very familiar with the effects of Weiler's Law and Conway's Law. Wish I had known Heller's Law back when I was working. It would have explained so many problems. But my favorite of all of them is the Law of Avoiding Oversell. I believe I'll make it my new motto!

A pommy shower refers to the fact that the English (poms) years ago used to wash very infrequently as they considered it bad from them. Aussies are completely the opposite - hence the reason water restrictions are hard

Okay. I can give you that one. But you have to accept that a "sponge bath" is the American desire to collect sponges and other sea creatures for the express purpose of sanitizing them for their own good.
