Set in the exciting world of Prada about a former male model turned brand manager and the beautiful small town public relations specialist he doesn’t think he needs.

Go behind the scenes in the fashion industry as Gwendolyn Mallory sets out to prove that she has what it takes to promote a prestigious brand like Prada. Andrew Morgan is already struggling to accept that his PR responsibilities have been taken away from him, but the intense attraction he has for Gwen, is just plain getting in the way of rational thinking—sleeping with a co-worker has always been on his to-don’t list. Follow the sparkling fuse slowly burning with sexual tension as Gwen brings to life a sexy devil…who just happens to wear Prada. Andrew has to have the woman he never knew he needed.

10 Things You Didn’t Know About:

1. MUST LOVE FASHION was conceived after another novel I’d written called, “The Cougar Cruise,” was harshly rejected by the agent I was working with at the time.

2. After “The Cougar Cruise,” which took a year to write, was rejected, MUST LOVE FASHION was written in 4 months.

3. The original opening scene was Andrew leaving the hospital after his wife Cate had passed away.

4. The inspiration for Gwen’s health issues are based on my own battles with LCIS. (Lobular Carcinoma In Sito)

5. The scene where Gwen and Andrew take a bus to the Cinque Terre from Milan was written with details I’d gotten from watching several YouTube videos.

6. Andrew’s mother was based on a character in an historical romance by Sylvia Day.

7. All the Italian translations in MUST LOVE FASHION were created with Google Translations.

8. MUST LOVE FASHION was entered into RWA’s Golden Heart Contest and received a score of 8.6 (out of 10), which sent it to the next preliminary round.

9. MUST LOVE FASHION received a sensuality rating from RT Reviews (And 4 Stars!) as Mild.

10. The next book in the Darling Cove Series was supposed to be about Gwen’s sister, Skye (MUST BE CRAZY). But their brother Greg’s story about his runaway bride coming back to town (MUST HAVE FAITH) was so compelling for me that I had to write that story next instead. MUST HAVE FAITH will be released June 4, 2018!
