This is an epic day. My husband, Dmytry Karpov, and I just launched our first novel together. Kiss Me in Paris is a new adult contemporary romance that blends romance, passion, family drama, humor and real life issues with the excitement of international travel.
It’s amazing to me that I have a husband I can write books with, a man who shares my passion, someone with whom I can spend nearly every moment of my life with and still enjoy being around! We learned a lot, writing this book together. We argued over dangling prepositions and debated about word choice and discussed at length whether a dialogue tag should be Winter says, or says Winter.
And we loved every minute.
Dmytry has been my story consultant for the Forbidden Trilogy and Seduced Trilogy, and I’m so proud to have him as my co-author for the Kiss Me Series and many more books in the future.
I think what I love most about Kiss Me in Paris is how real it is. How profound and funny and romantic and fun it is. There are scenes that will have you peeing your pants laughing so hard. And there are scenes that are so heartbreaking, you’ll weep your eyes out. There are life lessons woven into this story that reflect real truths about what it means to be in love, be in a family, be an independent person pursuing your own passions. I love every word in this book.
I never thought I’d write contemporary. I love fantasy and paranormal and all of my previous books reflect that. But there was something truly special about writing a contemporary novel, and I’m looking forward to the rest of the Kiss Me Series. (Next up, Kiss Me in Cairo, a romance with mystery.)
