5. 5th Sep - Be Late For Something Day.
The Duchess Deal - I'm always late, but worth the wait! If anyone can make me stay up late (and thus be late for work the next day), it's Tessa Dare! Eagerly awaited this new release! ★★★★★ My Review EXACTLY as I expected!

6. 6th Sep - Read a book day.
Surrender of a Siren - Another Tessa Dare! She's always a great escape, stress-reliever and a sea voyage - nothing says 'get away' quite like a ship!

Mistress - Couple dots in the title/author name!
OR
Little White Lies - lots of dots!

8. 20th Sep - Punch day.
