  • Tremaine, Avril, Now You’re Mine (PRH) – general commercial contemporary fiction, set in Abu Dhabi and Boston. A “super sexy cross cultural romance” which grew out of Avril’s experience living and working in the United Arab Emirates. Avril “wanted to give readers a sense of the magic of the desert and the poetry of its people.” Avril has been writing full time since 2013 when she simultaneously won one global romance competition and was a top 10 finalist in another. She has since published seven contemporary romances with Penguin Random House and Harlequin.
