About

The Pleasures of Summer has gone in at #1 in the iTunes market and at #9 in the paperback charts.

I'm half of Evie Hunter, the infamous duo who has writen The Pleasures of Winter, A Touch of Winter, The Pleasures of Summer, A Touch of Summer and Angels, Demons and Doms. 

The Pleasures of Winter has sold over 50,000 copies so far, and we are hoping that Summer will do much, much better.

Clive Cussler is a very established author. He could start his novel anywhere he likes and his fans will still buy his books. And JK Rowling started the first HP with the death of Voldermort, not a day in the life. 

In any case, though you should definitely read and learn from all the best-selling novelists, don't assume that because one of them has done something, you can too.

Waking up in a stranger's bed is great. I'd keep the hangover for after she realises she has no idea whose bed she is in. If she is an alcoholic, chances are she's used to hangovers, can process through it. It's discomfort rather than acute pain. 

How does she know the noise that wakens her is a couple fighting? All she can hear is shouting. 

Would she "hiss like a vampire" at sunlight? It seems a little unnatural. 

The hangover didn't "greet" her head, you need a different verb there.
