When I was trying to figure out Leila, my heroine, I worked from the outside in. What did she look like? What did she wear? How did she style her hair. If I could see her, I could breathe life into her. It turns out, Leila is profoundly insecure. But you'd never guess it by looking at her. She is stylish, sophisticated, and expresses her sensuality through her clothes. The restrained color palette was red, black, and gold. I just wish my closet was as curated and refined as hers.
If the American dream is a house with a picket fence, the Miami dream is a luxury condo with endless bay views. My new series, Miami Dreams, features the blood sport of high-end real estate and the young professionals seeking to score. Exclusively Yours (March 2018) focuses on the business end. Top Miami Realtor, Nicolas Adrian, falls madly in love with an ambitious new-comer, Leila Amis. Professional rivalry and passion combine for an exciting read.
