Today I would like to give a warm welcome to author, Aimee Duffy, joining us with her contemporary romance - Sinfully Summer!
A Day in the Life of an Heiress…
Due to the way Sinfully Summer kicks off (with my heroine running around an exclusive Spanish hotel in her underwear), everyone keeps asking me if I have any similarities to my heroine, or whether I have done all of the crazy things she does during the book. My answer each time?
But it got me thinking, what would a day in Alexa’s Jimmy Choos be like? Obviously when she’s in London, and pre-Spanish hunk. Sadly I couldn’t find my own at short notice. Then there’s the issue that I don’t have a trust fund, but that’s okay because Alexa refuses to touch a penny of hers.
So I gave it a shot. Fictionally, of course.
9am. Catch up on some paperwork for my business, Together, and text back and forth with the girls to arrange a lunch date. Roll my eyes at them both for managing to slip in a convo about their weddings. Grrr.
1pm. With work mostly done, enjoy lunch at fancy restaurant. Though I’d enjoy it more if the annoying paparazzi weren’t following me. I’m hardly that exciting, even if I was pictured outside a popular London club last night just after my heel snapped. No doubt tomorrows headline will read “Wild-child Green having a hair of the dog”.
3pm. Accounts. Not my strong suit but even I can see I’ll need to start getting more clients or I can kiss my fancy apartment goodbye. No way am I touching father’s trust fund.
4pm. Start getting ready for a mortuary function, but it’s okay this time because I’m going willingly to network, not because father has clicked his fingers and expected me to come running.
7pm. Nab a glass of orange juice from a passing waiter and wish I’d opted for the champagne. Men in penguin suits make me nervous, but it’s a necessary evil. Drag best friend Sarah around to mingle and hand out business cards.
9pm. Make a hasty exit and hit a cocktail bar down town. Followed again by the paparazzi. Tempted to give them something to write about but resist. Just. Listen to Sarah go on and on about the wedding. Realise that after their married I won’t be able to spend as much quality time with them. Resolve to book one last holiday with them, and make sure it’s the best ever…
Huge thank you to Crystal for having me today.
Sinfully Summer Blurb:
Sun, Sea and Scandal Notorious heiress Alexa Green has certainly been enjoying her most recent girls-holiday in Marbella. Just as we thought, she’s been knocking back the cocktails and showing off her fabulous bikini body on the beach… but rumour has it she’s also been spotted sneaking out of Enrique Castillo’s penthouse in the early hours of this morning – in nothing but her underwear! Our question is, doesn’t this fiercely private billionaire know what he’s letting himself in for? He’s got the millions… and she knows how to spend them! So lie back on your sun lounger and get comfortable, because this summer fling is going to be a sizzler!Amazon US / Amazon UK / Google Play / Barnes & Noble
About the Author:
All my life I’ve been dreaming up stories. My mum said when I was little I used to make all the My Little Pony figurines talk to each other, and even fall in love. Later, it was Barbie and Ken. In my teens, I played matchmaker with my friends at school.You can find me here:
When I wasn’t creating imaginary scenarios, I had my nose stuck in books, reading across genres and there was one thing I loved more than the escapism—the fact a story can touch me so deeply, like I was experiencing everything along with my characters. I knew from early on this was something I wanted to do for others.
Fast forward a few years, and the dream almost got lost in real life, but I still couldn’t shake it completely. Now I write sizzling romance with the hope of making my readers’ hearts race like they are falling in love for the first time.
