🌟It's Publication Day for Breathe Into Me!🌟

Yes, it's yet another publication day for me as Breathe Into Me is finally released! A little bit of a departure book for me, this has actually been two years in the making, started back in 2015 it's been put to one side several times as I concentrated on the darker side of romance with my biker books, but when I felt like I needed a short rest from the bikers; felt like writing a little escapism, I pulled this book back out, rewrote quite a chunk of it, and Breathe Into Me was born. And I'm really proud of this story. It really is pure and utter escapism and I make no apologies for that. It's a beach read, a lose-yourself-in-another-world kind of book, but I just adored writing it. And I just hope some of you out there enjoy reading it...

Blurb

Quinn Baxter has it all – beautiful, talented and one of the highest paid actors in L.A. she’s living the Hollywood dream, alongside her movie star husband, Aaron Rogers; hot, handsome and as much in demand as she is. For ten years they’ve been crazy in love. For ten years their marriage has been one of the strongest in Hollywood. For ten years they’ve been happy. Ten years ago Quinn put pain and tragedy behind her to begin again, and Aaron, he saved her. He saved her, from a man who almost destroyed her. A man Quinn has never really let go of, no matter what those around her might have thought. So when he comes back into their lives in the most public way possible, it opens up a web of lies, betrayal and tragic secrets that threaten everything. Decisions made in the past come back to haunt the present, fiction starts to mirror reality, and real lives being torn apart suddenly makes great publicity in a world where box office receipts matter, and the truth rarely does.

Quinn was saved, once, from a man who almost destroyed her.
Now she just might need saving all over again…

Cover Reveal! 'Protection' - Death Knights MC Book #1


For the past few months I've taken a little departure from writing my usual dark romance and released three very different books, going very much down the route of conventional romance with Lawfully His, Willfully Hers - books 1 and 2 in The Dirty Business Series - and Breathe Into Me, my upcoming Hollywood romance due for release on March 30th. 

But now I've gone back to the dark side, so to speak, because May will see the release of a brand new MC romance from me - Protection... and here's the cover...




So, if you like your romance a little darker and dirtier, watch this space for pre-order details and a definite release date, both coming very soon.

Jackie Collins, Captain America, and a bit of Michael Fassbender...


I'm a huge fan of Jackie Collins, I've never made a secret about that. I love the way her books transport me to somewhere I will never be a part of, but thanks to her writing I can feel like I'm there, immersed in that sexy, scandalous world of movie stars, rock stars, wayward politicians... 

She was a huge inspiration to me over the years, when I was deciding whether I was brave enough to write my own books and tell my own stories, so much so that the first book I ever wrote - the rather epic No Matter What - was a story set in Hollywood involving movie star scandals; lots of glamour and glitz, secrets, lies... you get the gist. I loved writing book, although, I know for a fact if I looked at it now I'd want to re-write the whole thing, but that was the first book I ever wrote. And I'm about to release my twenty-third now, so, hindsight and all that.

Hollywood - the setting for No Matter What,
Illusions of Love, and Breathe Into Me.
Anyway, over the years I've gone from writing epic Hollywood romances to romcoms, to very dark biker romances and extremely HOT erotic romance. But now I've kind of come full circle with my next upcoming release Breathe Into Me. I've gone back to Hollywood, and written a book that I hope will transport readers into a completely different world the way the late Ms. Collins transported me. A world they can lose themselves in as they follow the lives of Quinn Baxter, Aaron Rogers, and Lukas Drake - three fictional movie stars whose stories, and pasts, intertwine to unearth tragic secrets, heartbreaking betrayal, and a web of lies that threatens to tear all their worlds apart...

Chris Evans
But what's Captain America got to do with all of this? Well, we authors need our inspiration, right? When it comes to creating characters, so, when it came to creating the character of hot Hollywood actor Aaron Rogers, I looked no further than Chris 'Captain America' Evans. Because he is just perfect! On every level, but that's a whole other blog post, that is. Anyway, where was I? Oh, yeah... when I was writing Aaron, Chris Evans kept popping into my head, because he was just how I imagined Aaron to be - mid-thirties, classically handsome, beautiful eyes and a kind soul. My first main male character had their muse. 
Michael Fassbender


But what about the second one? The character of British/Irish actor Lukas Drake? Who inspired him? Michael Fassbender, that's who. Lukas is a little more rough around the edges, a little less clean-cut so, in my eyes, Fassbender was the only one to inspire that character. And he's pretty easy on the eye, too, so, you know. It's all good. 

And I just adored writing this book. Sometimes I just love writing pure escapism like this, and I just hope that readers can lose themselves in this story I've created; escape from their own world into Quinn, Lukas and Aaron's. From the streets of LA, to the beaches of Malibu, to the gated homes of Beverly Hills, Breathe Into Me embarks on a journey of past mistakes, painful regret, and lost love. And what happens when fiction starts to mirror reality, and the whole world's watching...



Breathe Into Me is released March 30th, but it's available to pre-order now over on Amazon.
