As my blog says I am a hopeless romantic, and my new release, Hunger for You, is a testament to that. In 2016 I wanted to have a bash at writing a erotic short story, based around the world of the Dapper butch, so I set to work.
The short story was called Dapper, and It soon became very apparent that I couldn’t write erotica without love blossoming between my main characters, and so I decided to write Byron and Amelia’s love story.
So how did I get from an erotic story about a Dapper butch to vampire clans? It’s funny how story ideas come to you, and in fact the character of Byron told me, in a roundbout way.
I was writing one of the love scenes in Dapper, and then Byron suddenly had an urge to sofly bite the ankle of her lover Amelia, and it just hit me-she’s a vampire.
She’s hiding a secret life, and hiding her true self from her lover Amelia. The world of Hunger for you soon followed quickly.
The story takes place six months after Dapper, and Byron’s secret life is about to come crashing into Byron’s and Amelia’s burgeoning relationship.
The moral of of the story is listen to your characters, and they can open up new worlds that you never considered writing about!
Here’s the teaser –
Being Principe of an ancient vampire dynasty comes with difficult choices. For Byron Debrek that means putting the good of her clan and innocent mortals over her own desires. When she falls for the first woman to set her blood on fire in centuries, Byron must harden her heart and walk away.
For Amelia Honey, a suit designer at a Savile Row tailor, the six months spent with her first love were the most wonderful time of her life. Byron made her feel like a princess and awakened her darkest sexual desires. But then she disappeared, leaving her nothing but a first-class plane ticket and a broken heart.
When a dangerous enemy befriends Amelia, Byron is compelled to act. Will she be able to regain Amelia’s trust and protect her? Or will pain and anger drive Amelia into the hands of Byron’s enemies, and into the middle of a vampire war?
As always with my books, I have a playlist I write with. I play this every morning as start to write, and it gets me into the world that I'm writing about. The two major ones for Hunger for you were...
