Behind the Scenes: In the Heat of the Spotlight

When I started writing Beneath The Veil of Paradise, I made Chase the youngest of three brothers and a bit of a tearaway. When describing his brothers to the heroine Millie, he says, ‘Luke is a bit of a workaholic and Aaron thinks life is a game of Monopoly where he has all the money.’ It was a bit of a throwaway line, but it wouldn’t let me go! And as I started to think about Luke and Aaron, I realised I wanted to write their stories too. Luke is the middle brother, and as a child he was quiet, shy, and overlooked. I was intrigued by the idea of a ‘typical’ Presents Alpha hero who was shy as a child—he even had a stammer. How did Luke become the man he is—quiet still, but deeply loyal and honest? I loved writing him, and his heroine Aurelie, a washed-up popstar with a string of bad decisions behind her, made them the perfect if unexpected match!
