Maya Scotton, a young artist with a severe case of painter’s block, is in need of money. When she takes on an office job at a construction company, she finds herself firmly in the sights of the owner, Daniel Foster – a dangerously attractive man with a dark past and particular tastes in bed.
Although she tries to resist him, Maya soon finds herself embroiled in a steamy relationship with Dan. And while he slowly encourages her to paint again, she begins to peel back his layers. At last, when she believes that she’s finally come to understand his ways, he has one final secret to reveal … and it’s a secret that threatens to blow them apart.
You Don’t Know Me, an erotic romance, is the first book in the You Don’t Know Me Trilogy.
Interview with the Author
What’s different about this erotic romance?
I’m a huge fan of erotic romance and wanted to write something I’d enjoy myself. So, you’ll find familiar elements from erotic romance in these books. However, I also wanted to take this series in a different direction. So, I’ve included plenty of humour and realism, and I’ve put my own twist on some of those erotic romance trademarks. A lot of work went into plotting, making sure all three books are real page turners. And although the story’s a romance, there’s also plenty of mystery and suspense, with a big twist at the end of book one which will make you see the hero in a completely different light.
I love a damaged hero, a filthy rich, possessive alpha male with a dark past and a penchant for kinky sex – and that’s exactly what you get in Daniel Foster. But he’s a lot deeper than that. You’ll find he’s also funny, caring, fiercely loyal, sensitive, and definitely not a power-hungry control freak at all. I also love a feisty, funny heroine, and Maya’s just that. She gives Dan more than a run for his money! She’s sexually experienced herself, and a gifted but struggling artist. At the beginning of the trilogy, she’s lost her way in life. But as the story progresses, she grows stronger, overcoming her own issues while helping Dan to do the same.
Why should readers give The You Don’t Know Me trilogy a try?
When I released Shut Your Eyes, the final book in the trilogy, it reached number 12 on Amazon UK for erotic romance, and stayed in the top 100 for a while – a good measure of how many people have already enjoyed the first two books.
The first book doesn’t jump straight into sex scenes. I wanted to develop the chemistry between the two main characters first. But don’t worry. It doesn’t take long for them to hook up. And then, readers will obviously enjoy the steamy sexual relationship between Maya and Dan, not to mention their blossoming love for each other with all its twists and turns. Sex is absolutely integral to the story. Dan introduces Maya to elements of BDSM. But this raises issues for them both, which need to be addressed before they can reach a mutually healthy approach to kinky sex. I think readers will like these developments.
In addition to all this, I think readers will also enjoy the humour in the books. So far, many people have told me they’ve laughed out loud at various points. And finally, the book is obviously British. If anyone fancies a trip to London but can’t make it in person, they just need to read the trilogy. I’ll transport you there in your head!
