Back in 2012 I wrote a series of novellas (The Sydney Cougar Series) that were part of my learning journey into the world of publishing. All of the novellas were well received by both reviewers and readers. The third novella even received a 4.5 star review in RT magazine. However, one thing became evident when listening to feedback I received. Everyone wanted more.
Not more novellas, but more of the story. They loved the characters but needed to know a little extra about them, their motives and their backstory. As the novellas were under contract I had little choice but to wait to make changes to the stories.
Last year I received the rights back from my publisher and immediately knew what I had to do. Rewrite the series. Make them books with more depth, in relation to both the characters and the storyline. I started planning, looking at the novellas and plotting how to rework each one. The result is my new Hot in the City Series.
Each story is set in Sydney, Australia. The characters are involved in the nightlife of the area, the culture of the city and have lifestyles reflective of any major city in the world, but with a unique Aussie twist.
Each story is erotic, the sex is hot and heavy and the issues the character face within the books reflects aspects of everyday life that we all face.
I desperately wanted to call the series Sex in the City, but clearly that wasn't feasible for all sorts of reasons. Still it didn't stop me from writing sexy Aussie hunks determined to win the strong women who have caught their attention and hearts.
The first book is Secret Desire. as I said it released on September 30th and is available from online ebook retailers like Amazon, Smashwords and Barnes and Noble. Links are listed below. To have a sneak peek at the book read on. ☺
