Kris Pearsonabout this book: Resisting Nick came about because of a boy I had a hopeless crush on as a teenager. We never so much as exchanged a word, and he was several years older than me and a real bad boy. He obviously burrowed into my brain and stayed there. I even pinched part of his name! I often wondered what had happened to him, so one day I started inventing his future. I gave him a girl called Sammie (who is definitely not me, although she grew up in a similar small town.) And then I added some angst and problems to pull them together and drive them apart. And an eventual happy ending of course, because this is a romance after all. It's set in New Zealand, because that's where I'm from. And there's a trip to Australia, and one to a country in Europe which I won't name here because that would be a real spoiler.
It's a contemporary romance – somewhat sexy, but certainly not erotica. My dear old Mom once famously said, "People don't want to read about sex, darling." How wrong she was. A bit of sizzle seems to go down very well with readers.
I think it will appeal more to women than men. But I've been surprised by the reactions from husbands and partners of friends who've read it just because they knew I'd written it. Anyone who reads Harlequin's spicy contemporary lines should enjoy it. Also anyone wanting a 'holiday' in New Zealand...an escape from everyday life. Resisting Nick is not all plain sailing for my main characters, but it's not emotion-drenched like a lot of romances.
I spent a long time finding the perfect shot for the cover - and suddenly there they were. Nick with his dark hair and beautiful body (and a tattoo that subsequently got added into the book) and Sammie with her long blonde hair. She looks pretty happy to be in his arms. I hope you enjoy their story.
