I hit submit!

Finally, after five and a half weeks of writing, revising, editing—then after my lovely crit partners Michelle and Incy (superstars) read it over, revising again—I sent the full manuscript off to RIVA! Let the nail biting begin!

Ric & Alexa’s story was so fun to write that I didn’t regret or stress over a second of it. Giving them their happy ever after almost made me cry. I’m so in love with Alexa, she’s so bubbly, outspoken and headstrong that I knew I had to find a hero who could help tame her—Enrique (aka Ric) seemed the perfect candidate.

After growing up on the streets of Madrid, Ric’s heart grew hard and he didn’t know how to let anyone in. His life is strict, regimented and in Alexa’s opinion, absolutely boring! But beneath the surface he hides secrets and pain that only the couple who gave him a home know about.

If you would like a sneak peak at how these two met, I entered the first chapter into SYTYCW and you can view it here. Beware though, the beginning contains a scantily dressed heiress partaking in a crazy dare that leads to trouble. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!

The entry is called Flirting With Trouble which I think describes Ric & Alexa’s story perfectly.

In other news, it’s only 18 days until the release of The Monster of Fame, and I really must hammer down with the second in the series.

I’ll be back in a bit with info on tours and giveaways so stay tuned! ;)

    1. Thanks Michelle! I wrote the epilogue, with a twist on what we'd discussed, but I'm keeping zipped. Ner, ner, ner, ner, ner :D xxx
