Introducing Love in the City Series

dellani photo dark redA few years ago, I was sitting down to write my novel for NaNoWriMo, and I got an idea for a romantic suspense set in a large city, like Chicago or New York. Unfortunately, I don’t know enough about either city to use them without a lot of research, so I decided to come up with my own. It didn’t seem important to give the city a name. It’s a nameless entity “up north” somewhere north of everywhere.

I’ve set a series of novels there and I still haven’t given it a name. It’s never seemed important to do so. No one refers to it by name, it’s always The City in an anonymous sort of reference. The City is, in effect, more of a feeling and backdrop rather than an actual named place. To me, it has taken on its own personality and is as much a character as the people playing across the canvas.

I love my city and I hope that you will love it, and the characters in it, too. Welcome to The City. Enjoy!

Though many books are set here, none of them have been published. However, several of them have been shared on my website and you can read them here:

It Takes a Thief

Something New

Undercover Lover


Books set in The City will be published sooner or later. Sorry I can’t be more exact with dates at the moment. It all depends on editing, start up costs, covers, etc. If you’d like to see them sooner rather than later, you can help by purchasing my current books. I have a great selection including (but not limited to) romantic suspense, historical romance, retro romance, erotic romance and sci-fi. Look for all my books at Amazon
