Kris Pearsonabout this book: Ravishing Rose is my first novella - around 15,000 words of sexy fun in a very different location. I bet you've wanted to drift off and escape your everyday life at some stage? Just have a little imaginary adventure with someone gorgeous? No strings, no repercussions? Go on - admit it!
That's what Rose wanted. She'd been a good girl too long, and here she was, yet again being very obliging and filling in for someone. When she was persuaded to wear her sister-in-law's decadent costume to a masked party, she had no idea what the evening would bring. So I tagged along with her and had a little adventure too. I did enjoy myself!
Some years ago my husband and I went to a demolition party. The ancient house our friends were renting was to be demolished. A team of us who worked in TV were invited to behave badly and wreck the place before the official crew moved on site. You have no idea what it feels like to smash windows, tear down wallpaper, and write on the walls! Good party.
So this stayed in my mind, and I knew sooner or later I'd make use of that evening. This novella seemed the perfect place.
A bit of history: this was the start of a novel I submitted to a New York agent who has taken a flattering interest in my work. She said 'But Kris, you've got two entirely different stories going on here. Why not split off the front, write it a new ending, and launch it as a novella - and then do something different with all the rest?' When I looked again it was blindingly obvious she was right... Rose got to have a bit more fun than she expected, and so did I. I hope you do too.
