Fight for a Prize

Book 5 in Secret Confessions: Down & Dusty…

clarissa

Clarissa may have been daydreaming about her head stockman, Brandon, every day and night of the long, hot drought, but Brandon has never been anything more than friendly and professional, and Clarissa has long accepted that life will never imitate fantasy. Until Brandon recommends an old friend—a renowned bull-rider and stockman—for a job, and suddenly Clarissa finds herself in the middle of a competition between two of the hottest men that she’s ever seen. But Clarissa doesn’t fancy herself a prize—and with two cowboys willing to do whatever it takes to make her happy, she might just decide that the winner takes all.

Clarissa is available today!

All of the Housewives have revealed their secrets – have you learned them all?

SLAH_Camilla_FinalTo all of Sydney’s society, she’s just the upstart, gold-digging waitress that somehow managed to snare one of Australia’s most eligible bachelors.


SLAH_Darla_FinalIn the final instalment, Darla, our sad, funny housewife finds that being a little neighbourly can lead to so much more.

#SydneyWives – Charismatic Camilla

reblogged from AusRomToday – the competition ends soon! Have you entered?

Tell us a little more about your housewife, Camilla:
She’s young and sweet and totally in love with her much older husband. She pinches herself every day that she met and married such an adoring, handsome man.  Of course he loves her too, along with her wild red hair and pale, freckled skin. She’s beautiful and sexy as hell. And she’s all his 🙂

What inspired Camilla’s story:
We were given a very basic outline of our characters and I simply ran with it. My characters and their personalities and backgrounds formed in my head really quickly. As for the plot – it’s the Cinderella story we’d all love to live 🙂

What was your biggest challenge in writing Camilla’s story?
Camilla and her husband, Drake, weren’t a challenge to write – they were so much fun. But tying in the threads of other characters from other books was a bit more complicated, making sure everything that happened slid neatly into the right time frame and corresponded with the other stories.

Why will we love Camilla?
Because she’s a character I think a lot of us can relate to, she’s got her insecurities and doubts, but she’s also strong-minded and won’t let anyone get in the way of her happiness. She’s living the dream life, a penthouse apartment, a rich, adoring husband, and a sex life she can’t get enough of. What’s not to love? *smile*

The Housewives of Sydney series promises that we’ll “find out what goes on behind the doors of the most exclusive addresses in the country”. What was the appeal of joining this series? Similarly, what has been the biggest challenge?
I thought the whole concept was brilliant. Plus I know a lot of the authors and love their work so it was a no brainer to come onboard. And I loved how the housewives all had their turn at the fortnightly Double D Dinners (a concept Camilla was frankly quite terrified of failing at). The dinners are for the elite group of friends only, so you can only imagine the gossip and scandals, the innuendos and cattiness. One other challenge for me was getting the dinner scene right. It’s not the biggest part of the story, but it is integral to the arc of the series and the flow-on effect.


22810From the hottest writers in Australia comes a scintillating new series. Enter the world of Sydney’s elite, and find out what goes on behind the doors of the most exclusive addresses in the country…

Meet the Housewives of Sydney. They are wealthy, elegant, poised, and constantly in the public eye. But what goes on behind closed doors, in the private homes and parties where the cameras and paparazzi aren’t welcome? Delve into the most personal details of their relationships, their friendships and their lives. The only question is: can you handle the heat?

To all of Sydney’s society, she’s just the upstart, gold-digging waitress that somehow managed to snare one of Australia’s most eligible bachelors.

Camilla can’t pretend that the gossip and the innuendo that follows her wherever she goes doesn’t bother her, but when the world gets too much, she just stays in her beautiful home, with her beautiful husband. After all, no one knows what goes on behind closed doors, and plenty goes on at Camilla’s house.
