My love for romance novels began when I discovered Mills & Boon Books as a teenager. There, in a world constructed out of the 26 letters of the alphabet, I was the
leading lady, and every other week I would fall in love with a new beautiful
alpha male; travel to exotic places and experience many erotic moments.
Dreaming and reading inevitably spilled over into writing. I am and remain a
fantasy-prone-escapist who now pens down her musings.
My favorite themes include:
* Alpha males who know how to love their woman
* Bad boys with hearts of gold
* And, of course, strong sassy women who can stand their own.
For my latest release, First Love, I drew inspiration from a very well-known classic romance novel, mixed in a good dash of humor, a healthy dollop of sexual chemistry and a pinch of ‘a-twist-in-the-end’; the perfect recipe for a book well-worth reading!

About First Love: A Single Dad Second Chance Romance by Scarlet Wilder
Liam was my first – my first love and the first man that I’ve made love to. Only, our lives were worlds apart and his family did everything they could to keep it that way.
Ten years later, we meet again by chance. He somehow ends up smarter and sexier, and he still has the same effect on me. Only now, life is more complicated for us both, and he needs a pretend fiancé.
What good is living your dream when you know that it’s just a lie?
What good is having a dream if you never take the chance to live it?
I was young and naïve the first time around and thought just because we loved each other, that would be enough, but it wasn’t. It turned out love wasn’t enough, and I thought I’d lost him forever.
Moving on, but never really getting past the loss, I built myself a life, even got myself a cat, but never managed to fall in love again. I had no idea that just seeing him again would make me realize why.
I didn’t think it could be real until that DNA test was sitting right in front of me. Now, I’m all this little girl has, and I’m not about to let her down. I made up my mind years ago about the kind of dad I’d one day be and now that fatherhood came sooner than I planned, I’m even more determined to keep that promise.
In my world, money isn’t a problem, but I still need to keep my shareholders and business partners happy. I need to find a wife, and soon, as my daughter needs a mother and the success of my business demands it.
They say money can solve all problems –
so let’s see if it can buy me the future I secretly desire.
First Love contains adult language and situations. The book is intended for adult audiences. Don’t worry about cliffhangers or sad endings because you won’t find one here. Standalones are where it’s at so sit back and ride this hot romance story all the way to the HEA.
There was little chance that I’d be able to stay away from the party for much longer before my absence was noticed. But the last thing I needed was to get into an argument with Dad, so after sinking the final ball, I left the snooker table and went to put my cue back on the rack. As I did, though, I heard footsteps and figured it was Mom or Catherine coming to find me. I was about to hold up my hands and admit defeat, but as I went to meet them, I was stunned to see that, walking along the edge of the pool, was none other than Elle Evans.
I hardly recognized her at first glance. We may have spent the last three years attending the same high school, but this wasn’t the same shy girl I knew who walked the halls with her books clutched to her chest and her hair often covering her face.
In a stunning pale green dress that swept the floor as she walked, she looked elegant and serene. Stepping into the light, I saw from her tearstained face that she’d been crying. I understood why when I noticed the huge wine stain on her otherwise exquisite dress.
Something made me stand back in the shadows and watch her. I smiled to myself as she dipped a toe in the water, and then my eyes widened in disbelief as she started taking off her dress. I knew I should have looked away, that would have been the gentlemanly thing to do, but I was spellbound. My eyes drank in the pure beauty of her and, as her bra and lace panties dropped onto the tiles next to her dress, the last traces of the shy schoolgirl I knew fell away, too.
She stood there, gazing at the pool, utterly exposed. Her breasts were round and smooth, and there was a small V of dark hair between her slim legs. Her ass was firm as a peach, and every movement of her body was just as graceful and delicate as it had been when she was fully clothed. She was captivatingly beautiful and I could only stare at her as she waded into the water before she pushed off to make her way to the other side of the pool.
With my hands shoved into the pockets of my tuxedo pants, I leaned against the pillar and watched her. The water enveloped her lithe body, and there was a relaxed smile on her face as she floated in the hot water. I couldn’t ignore the fact that there was a very sexy and very naked woman in my pool. She had my full attention.
My favorite quote from First Love: A Single Dad Second Chance Romance is:
“You can tell so much by a kiss,” Colin said, dramatically. “If he has soft lips, so that it feels like kissing a rainbow and you just want to stay there forever, then you know that there’s a pot of gold at the end of that rainbow, if you know what I mean.
