Bad Boys, Inspiration & a Giveaway.

Creating Alex Golden, the legendary bad boy of The Modeliser was a lot of fun and whilst I put a lot of thought and imagination into creating a gorgeous hero - a British actor who has managed to take Hollywood and the ladies by storm. It's safe to say that along the way I found time to peruse the internet for some inspiration. Or do I mean Sinspiration? 

Check out a few of the images that inspired me (there are a whole lot more!) And yes I love my job and I'm totally Team Eric, most of the time...

Leading Man


Off Duty and reading some scripts

There's just something about Bad Boys in film, TV, fiction, music and even in real life that holds women in their thrall, even when we should know better! In fiction, we've seen a massive rise of bad boys with a side of angst, vulnerability and a few spare Billions. And, From James Dean and Marlon Brando, Hollywood bad boys of yesteryear to today's crop of dangerous-to-know leading men the trend is still alive and well. On TV we have Don Draper in Mad Men, The King Slayer in Game of Thrones and who isn't partial to a bit of Chuck Bass in Gossip Girl? 

In The Modeliser, I drew inspiration from Hollywood bad boys both historical and contemporary in creating Alex Golden's character, so for my first giveaway I'm asking who is your favourite Hollywood Bad Boy?

The Modeliser Teaser 3


I hope you've been enjoying the sexy extracts from The Modeliser. 

It has been a glorious sunny few days in London, perfect weather for lounging and reading so I thought I'd share another snippet from The Modeliser for your enjoyment.

Here's more from our favourite Hollywood Bad Boy and Modeliser as he's reunited with ex-lover Tamara. 

Alex was awoken by the sound of a hard insistent pounding on his door. For a moment he lay disoriented in the bed, a mix of jet lag and whisky having finally taken their toll on him. There was another hard rap on the door and he swung his feet off the bed.
“I’m coming,” he yelled as the sleep quickly cleared. He padded naked through the suite. His eyes darted around for the towel he’d been wearing when he crashed onto the bed after his shower but he couldn’t find it. Besides, he reasoned to himself as he flicked on a small orange lamp, whoever was banging on his door in the middle of the night, had to be prepared to take him as they found him. Another knock rang out and Alex reached the door and yanked it open. 
“What!” He said and then slowly a wide grin spread across his face. 
Tamara looked him up and down a look of appreciation in her eyes. Her eyes drifted down his tanned perfect chest and then to the line of blonde hair on his abdomen that arrowed down towards…
“My eyes are up here,” Alex drawled, interrupting Tamara’s shameless ogling. 
“Aren’t you going to ask me in?” she asked. With a shrug Alex turned around to walk back into the suite, leaving Tamara with a million dollar money shot of his incredible butt. He strode through the suite back into the bedroom, his eyes darting around the room for his overnight bag where he would retrieve his pajama bottoms. From the sitting room, Tamara called out. “What are you doing?” 
“Trying to make myself decent,” Alex called back, with a smile in his voice. It wasn’t as though Tamara hadn’t already seen everything he had before. 
“Don’t bother,” her voice was closer and Alex spun around to see that she was standing in the doorway to the bedroom, slowly advancing in. He watched as she reached to her side and slowly pulled down the concealed zip in her white dress. Alex swallowed hard.
“What are you doing?”
“Isn’t it obvious?” she replied as she let the dress fall to her feet and she stepped away from it, now clad only in a sheer flesh-tone thong. She reached up to unclasp her hair and Alex’s eyes were drawn to the way this movement raised her breasts. God, he had forgotten just how beautiful she was. He watched as she let her blonde curls fall around her shoulders and she combed her fingers through her hair. Her eyes, Alex could see, were riveted to his cock and the erection that was growing fast. 
“How do you want me?” Tamara asked her voice husky and something in Alex snapped..." 

Don't forget I've got some advance review copies to give away once we hit 100 likes on Facebook. So get liking away and tell your romance lover friends to get in on the action too!

The Modeliser Teaser 2

Here's another sexy snippet from The Modeliser. Don't forget to head on over to Goodreads to add The Modeliser to your shelf and like my page on Facebook as I'll be giving away an advance review copy of The Modeliser when I hit 100 likes.

"Alex stared at the coltish blonde, watching the desire in her eyes grow. 
“It’s not everyday…” she pouted and then stopped biting her lip nervously. He decided to take pity on her. 
“It’s not every day...," he questioned lightly watching as a flush of colour flooded her cheeks. Their eyes connected in a shock of electricity. The girl took a deep breath and expelled it. 
“It’s not every day that you walk into the man who stars in all your sexual fantasies.” She might not be an innocent but there was a nervous naivety about her that Alex liked. She didn’t do this everyday and the last words had been whispered out in a rush of embarrassment. Her face was red, as though saying the words had over-exerted her. She watched him with a mixture of hope and fear and defiance and Alex suddenly wanted very much to see how badly she wanted to play. He rose abruptly and she backed away like a skittish horse but his arm shot out to pull her back towards him. 
“Let’s get out of here,” he said. “We’ll see about turning some of those fantasies into reality.” She swayed close to him as though waiting for a kiss, perhaps to seal the deal. Alex stared at her pink lips for a moment and then he turned his back on her, hearing the sigh of frustration on her lips, knowing that she fell into step behind him. She’d get what she wanted and more besides, but only when he was ready."

Things are heating up!
Let me know if you want more...

The Modeliser - Teaser 1

As a thank you to everyone who has started following me on Twitter and has added the book to their shelf on Goodreads here's a small snippet from The Modeliser. 

"Tamara Fearson was coming down from a blissful orgasm. 
An all-consuming, earth shattering, lose all sense of time and place kind of orgasm; the kind she’d never been able to reach with any man. 

Once, there’d been a man who’d been able to push her buttons, push her close to the edge, almost make her forget who she was, but that was a long time ago and the less Tamara thought about him, the better."

Enjoy! And do check back for more snippets coming soon.

The Big Cover Reveal

Hey Guys,
I am so excited to finally be able to reveal the cover for my debut novel THE MODELISER. I love the cover and I think it really captures the glamorous and sexy spirit of the book.

When Hollywood bad-boy and legendary womanizer Alex Golden’s beloved grandfather dies he returns to London, and is thrown into the path of the women from his past. There is ex-lover Tamara, a super-bitch actress who never lets anything get in her way: until she falls head over heels in love with a powerful billionaire, that is. Then we have Alex’s sister, Helena, who dreams of stepping out from her family’s shadow and carving out a career as a photographer. And finally there is Talia, Helena’s best friend, whose hopes for a career writing for the big screen are dashed when she is unfairly fired from her job in the script department on a successful soap.
Alex’s fate is caught up with these three women as ambition, lust and love collide against the drama-fuelled backdrop of the film world. . .

The Modeliser will be available from June 1st.

I hope you love the cover as much as I do. And please do check back on the blog as I'll be treating you to some sexy snippets and excerpts later this week.

Decisions, Decisions.

Happy Thursday Guys!

Hopefully you've got a fun and productive day ahead. And, if you're really lucky you are having a sunnier day than it is in grey London today.

For some crazy reason, I've agreed to do a 10km run with a bunch of my girlfriends next month and so yesterday saw me lacing up my sneakers and hitting the park for a run. I'm what the Nike website calls a "slow and steady" runner, which is to say every step feels a little bit like a descent into hell. And yet yesterday as I took my training programme up a notch and ran 5km that's just over 3 miles, for once I wasn't thinking about my screaming calves, burning knees or stinging thighs. I wasn't wondering if my lungs were about to explode. I wasn't plotting out my next novel, which is how I usually get through my runs. I wasn't even singing along to the Justin Timberlake album that I'd downloaded especially for my run. Nope. I was smiling to myself while I mentally ran through the cover art that I've been picking for my novel. Yes! I've been working with an artist and picking images, fonts... It's a BIG decision picking the cover of a book that I had sooooo much fun writing.

I should have the cover for you very soon. And then I can unleash the title and cover to you all at once. Let's just say the cover will be as scandalous as the novel!

Are you excited? I am.... Can't wait for the big reveal.

Stay tuned. And next time I might just let you in on the title...
