Hidden Heat is the first of a two-part story set around a hundred years in the future. It’s out on 26th March, and here’s the blurb:
When your body betrays you and your government might kill you for it, can you really trust a sexy man is all he seems?
In an Orwellian future world, highly skilled professionals must be sexually suppressed, to focus them better on their work. They get one week per year to procreate: a ‘heat phase’ allocated to them by computer.
Holly had been ready to give up everything for her career as a doctor – including her sexual urges. Her body rejected the treatment, denying her access to higher medical training, but Holly used her aunt’s connections to the clinic to cheat the system. Now she’s an unsuppressed woman struggling to hide in plain sight, and to control her desires without being discovered.
If the government finds out she’s faking it, they’ll likely kill her. So when a sexy medical student named Scott turns on the charm while flashing the wrist tattoos that mark them both as suppressed, Holly is terrified of letting down her guard with him. Could there really be a secret resistance faction whose aim is to abolish the suppression laws? And if she gives in to Scott’s advances, will there be terrible consequences?
