Flick Lindenwood, fresh from college, has returned home to the suburban haven of Green Valley, back to society…and the source of her heartbreak. Four years ago Elodie Hamilton savagely broke her heart, and Flick has no intention of letting her pretty ex get back under her skin. As far as she’s concerned, she and Elodie never happened.
But Elodie has other ideas.
Afraid to come out, Elodie chose to destroy her relationship with Flick rather than let her family know who she was. But now she wants to right the wrong she did—if she can only find the nerve, and if she can convince Flick to see past the pain she caused.
Tanith Davenport began writing erotica at the age of 27 by way of the Romantic Novelists' Association New Writers' Scheme. Her debut novel "The Hand He Dealt" was released by Total-e-Bound in June 2011 and was shortlisted for the Joan Hessayon Award for 2012.
Tanith has had short stories published by Naughty Nights Press and House of Erotica. She loves to travel and dreams of one day taking a driving tour of the United States, preferably in a classic 1950s pink Cadillac Eldorado.
Tanith's idea of heaven is an Indian head massage with a Mojito at her side.
1. Where do you get your ideas?
A lot of them come from music - I'll always have at least one song in my head for every story I write. Others, oddly enough, will come from dreams. I tend to dream very vividly and once I've lived through a scenario in a dream it's very easy to write it down.
2. Do you have a dream cast for your book?
I've always pictured Sara Paxton as Elodie. For Flick it would probably be Katharine Isabelle - she's one of my favourite actresses.
3. How do you handle writer’s block?
I take a break and try to write some notes instead. If I don't know what's coming next I'll just stare at the screen all day so I like to plan out what I'm going to write.
4. What inspired you to write this book?
The initial inspiration was a song - Sam Sparro's "I Wish I Never Met You". The line "I wish I never met you - that's how much I regret you" stuck in my head, and when I was later trying to come up with an idea for a lesbian story it came back to me.
5. What’s the hardest part of being an author?
Probably the research, but it's also the most enjoyable. I've done a lot of things in the name of literary research, including losing a lot of money in a casino and staying up half the night doing a paranormal investigation at a hall in Bradford. It's all worth it if my readers enjoy it!
