It has sold over a million copies and within a week of its release in Spanish, it is already among fiction’s top 10 bestsellers.

Desnuda ante tí tells the story of Eva, a new Manhattan denizen, and her hot romance with the gorgeous billionaire Gideon Cross. She toils as an ad agency assistant in the same building where he works. He yearns for instant physical gratification while she longs for more but he is the one that falls in love with her. A true modern day romancewith the high-end world of New York City as the backdrop.
The story hovers around one question: Is it possible for two abuse survivors to have a functional romantic relationship? This is the gist of the Crossfire saga.
We find two people, Eva and Gideon, who struggle for sexual dominance. Both come from troubled pasts of abuse and forced submission. When they meet, Eva bares her soul to him. Gideon, on the other hand, tries to ignore his past. Both are extremely jealous, insecure, possessive and seem to be engaged in a power struggle. They are aware of the issues they face but their attraction is undeniable.
“All my books do contain various levels of high sensuality. Some are erotic, some are erotica, some are simply sexy. The increased sexual tension between the characters as they struggle to stay emotionally distant while physically craving each other is powerful, and oftentimes heart wrenching,” said Day.
Desnuda ante tíis not for the faint of heart, or mind. A hot and sultry love story that is well written and promises to keep you warm this winter.
