Jan Graham is my guest at the Naughty Corner, with plenty to share about her Tirgearr City Nights erotic novella, One Night in Sydney, which launches today.
Nice to have you here, Jan. Tell us a little about your City Nights story, One Night in Sydney?
Well, to state the obvious, it’s set in Sydney, Australia. Lol. The story starts with Abby and Kane meeting on a plane while they travel to the city, both for very different reason. As the story unfolds readers discover that the couple have more in common than just an overnight fling. As time passes, tension and high emotions come into play with both Abby and Kane faced with choices they never anticipated having to make.
Out of all the major cities in Australia, why did you choose Sydney as the setting for the book?
I chose Sydney for a couple of reason. Firstly, I’m very familiar with Sydney and what the city has to offer visitors. I live about two hours away from Sydney so have spent a bit of time there, especially in my younger years. Secondly, I wanted to incorporate a festival or event of some sort into the story and Sydney has a great event called Vivid. Basically artists set up light and art displays all over the city, images are projected onto some of the major attractions like the Harbour Bridge and Opera House. There are also street performers and concerts organised during the two-week long festival. It’s amazing to see.
The couple in your story, Abigail and Kane, meet on a plane. Have you ever had any interesting experiences while flying?
I have actually. On a flight to Melbourne about ten years ago I drew the attention of a football team, yes the whole team. I spent the flight fending off advances and offers to join the mile-high club. Some of the offers were tempting but I declined on all counts. I did leave the plane with offers to join the group at the Spring Racing Carnival and lots of phone numbers. I was very flattered…lol.
If you were going to spend 24 hours with a hot stranger, which city would you choose to do it in, and why?
I’d probably choose Edinburgh. I’ve always wanted to visit Scotland and there’d be a good chance my hot stranger might be even sexier than I imagined if he was wearing a kilt. You can’t beat a man in a kilt. J
You write erotic fiction in a variety of genres. Which is your favourite to write?
I love writing erotic romantic suspense. The challenge of weaving a suspenseful story together fires up my imagination. Of course they take longer to write due to the length of the book and the added research needed to devise a credible plot. It’s all worth it though.
Is there any genre you actively avoid writing, or that doesn’t interest you as a reader?
I wouldn’t write historical romance. I don’t mind reading it but to write anything historical doesn’t tweak my interest at all.
A lot of your work has BDSM themes. What interests you about the BDSM dynamic?
I’ve been involved in the BDSM scene for about fifteen years so I have a personal interest in how the practice is portrayed. When I write a story that has BDSM elements I try to make them reflect reality. The BDSM isn’t the story, it’s only a part of it because one or more of the characters is a Dom or a sub, for example.
What are you reading at the moment?
I’m currently reading Dark Promises by Christine Feehan. I love paranormal romances and in particular vampires so Christine ticks all my paranormal boxes. 🙂
What is your next writing project?
I’m working of two things at the moment. The next book in the Wylde Shore Series, Tempting Marcus. It’s a romantic suspense novel and like the others involves appearances by characters from the previous books as well as some new ones. The second book that’s yelling out at me is a love story based on a true story. I haven’t got a title for that one yet but it will come in time.
What is the one thing about you that would surprise people reading this interview?
I think I mentioned it earlier, I’m a member of the BDSM community. Although I guess that’s not surprising now having already stated it. 🙂
Abigail Devon is all about business, until the dream of keeping her company alive fails and she finds herself seeking distraction in the arms of a tempting stranger she met on the plane. Kane Matheson is a man like no other, and once Abby gives into her attraction to him, passions spark and a night of erotic pleasure begins.
Kane can’t believe his luck when his flight to Sydney places Abby along his path to a fun filled weekend. She’s his kind of woman—business minded, clever, and with curves in all the right places. When he discovers they have more in common than savvy business expertise and undeniable sexual heat, he’s faced with a daunting choice, and left wondering if pleasure can win out over wise business sense in one of the most beautiful harbor side cities of the world.

Writing a bio that lets readers know who you are is tricky at times because I describe myself in so many ways. Like my books I fall into different genres, all of which depend on my mood and inspiration at the time. I am a writer, submissive, orphan, widow, sister, aunt, friend and sometimes, a wild child.
My writing currently falls under a variety of genres including BDSM, contemporary romance and romantic suspense but who knows where my literary future will lead. That’s going to be the next exciting chapter.
