A young creative director swears off men to protect her heart. A sensual Italian photographer commits to expose every secret sexual desire…she wants to deny.
Finding Dahlia’s Secret is a stand-alone, contemporary, erotic romance, complete at approximately 90,000 words. This manuscript is the first book of a planned, three book series with the same characters. The heat level is sensual; featuring a young, widowed creative director and a determined Italian photographer unexpectedly brought together for an advertising photo shoot in Florence, Italy. Finding Dahlia’s Secret explores the concept of finding the strength to emerge from grief and grab onto a second chance at love.
After her husband dies, Dahlia Andrews throws herself into work, jumping at the chance to go to Italy to direct a high profile advertising photo shoot with well-known photographer Stefano Bardini. The nude model runs off to Milan for Fashion week and Stefano suggests Dahlia is the perfect replacement. Before they are both fired off the account, Dahlia must face her insecurities about her body and her fear of finding a second chance at love. After all, keeping men at a distance is Dahlia’s misplaced life strategy. The problem: she has a treasure trove of sexual desires waiting to be unearthed…including a lustful fantasy involving Stefano and his assistant.
Finding Dahlia’s Secret placed second in the erotic genre of the 2013 RT Writer’s Idol Contest at the Romantic Times Book Lovers Convention in Kansas City. The manuscript is ready for consideration by agents and publishers.
