One thing I absolutely love about Samhain is the great variety of books they publish. From inspirational to erotica to all points in between, from romance to horror to fantasy to YA, it really is 'all about the story'.

Here's a perfect case in point -- I, Spy, a chick lit by Kate Johnson that has me laughing just from the description.

Never underestimate the blonde.

"The British spy is elegant, suave and sophisticated. The British spy is not blonde, built, and confused."

But Sophie Green is, and she's just been hired by a highly secret government agency. She drives a car the colour of bile and is obsessed with Buffy the Vampire Slayer. She doesn't know which end of the gun to fire from and her hair hasn't been natural since she was twelve. But that's not going to stop her from trying to save the day, once she figures out who to save it from.

Sexy spies, plane crashes, firebombs and multicoloured cocktails-they're all in a day's work for Sophie. Roll over, Bond, there's a new bombshell in town. And it's got Sophie's name on it...

Warning, this title contains guns, swearing, dark thoughts about cheerful people, incomprehensible Britishisms, and painful sarcasm.

I swear, even the warning is a hoot!

This book is available now, today, hot off the presses. Go buy it! :)

Kate, I love you.

No, not me-Kate (although I do love me too). Her-Kate.

Confused much?

Awesome, and the warning is a bonus! Cover is great--everything about this looks like a keeper.

Right back atcha, Kate/Cat! Hope your book does fabulously!

Stacy -- Glad I could be part of your e-book evolution. :) And so glad you loved the trilogy!

Merf, I have a feeling this one is right up your alley.

Ciar, thanks for stopping by! I agree -- definitely a keeper!
