Back in 2010 I had an idea for a book, it wasn’t a dream or a light-bulb moment just a lingering thought that began to roll around my mind and then grow, and spiral and extend branches and twigs as the plot deepened. The initial idea was a setting – a beautiful beach villa – a hockey player – he turned out to be Logan ‘Phoenix’ Taylor – and a woman who wasn’t who she said she was.
I’d just completed a creative writing course at Cardiff University (I live in Wales, local hockey team The Red Devils if you’re curious) and was ready to start writing novels. So off I went…
HIRED was born, it took me only a month to write because I was at it full time. I adored spending my days on this beautiful beach, and fell in love with my hero (despite his gruff ways) and was sure to give my heroine strength of character and self confidence. Of course it’s a super steamy read, which is always fun to write.
What I’d never anticipated was that HIRED would be the first in a 7 novel series. The secondary character, Brick, played on my mind and I had to give him a chance to find love too – even though you might not think he deserves it in HIRED. That then led on to the introduction of the captain of the team, Rick ‘Ramrod’ Lewis, a kinky delight, who needed a woman who could handle him. And then it goes on, many more members of the team had to have their happily ever after.
The complete series is available as a boxed set and is enrolled in Kindle Unlimited. This is the order of books (though they’re all fine as standalone reads, you just get to enjoy a few cameos if read in sequence) which are all available individually on KU and to purchase.
Spin-off stories available separately – ROOKIE RULES & RED-HOT TROUBLE
Recently I had HIRED made into an audio book. Of course I had to ‘proof listen to it’ and hanging out with Logan and Brooke really was a blast from the past. For me it was like spending time with old friends, I’d forgotten how much I adored them and that I’d missed them.
