About the series:
Gideon Cross came into my life like lightning in the darkness - beautiful and brilliant, jagged and white hot. I was drawn to him as I'd never been to anything or anyone in my life. The bonds of his love transformed me, even as I prayed that the torment of our pasts didn't tear us apart...
Gideon Cross was a bright, scorching flame that singed me with the darkest of pleasures. I couldn't stay away. He was my addiction, my every desire. We were bound by our need. And our passion would take us beyond our limits to the sweetest, sharpest edge of obsession.
No one knows how much Gideon risked for me. How much I'd been threatened, or just how dark and desperate the shadow of our pasts would become. Entwined by our secrets, we tried to defy the odds. We made our own rules and surrendered completely to the exquisite power of possession...
Gideon calls me his angel, but he's the miracle in my life. The vows we'd exchanged should have bound us tighter than blood and flesh. Instead they opened up old wounds, exposed pain and insecurities, and lured bitter enemies out of the shadows. We faced a terrible choice: the familiar safety of the lives we'd had before each other or the fight for a future that suddenly seemed an impossible and hopeless dream…
Gideon Cross. Falling in love with him was the easiest thing I've ever done. It happened instantly. Completely. Irrevocably.
Marrying him was a dream come true. Staying married to him is the fight of my life. Love transforms. Ours is both a refuge from the storm and the most violent of tempests. Two damaged souls entwined as one.
Now, I must be the rock, the shelter for him that he is for me. Together, we could stand against those who work so viciously to come between us. But our greatest battle may lie within the very vows that give us strength.
The highly awaited One with You is the heart-breaking and seductively poignant finale to this searing love story which has captivated readers worldwide.
Meet the author: Sylvia Day
What are you reading now?
The Bestseller Code by Jodie Archer and Matthew L Jockers.
What is the last book you bought someone as a gift?
When Someone You Love Has Cancer, for a friend whose family was facing a difficult time.
Is research a big part of your writing process?
It can be, depending on the story I’m telling. Every story requires some research, but certainly some involve more than others.
Do you have any peculiar writing rituals or habits?
No. I have to write when I can, where I can, so anything too peculiar would limit me too greatly.
What advice would you offer to aspiring writers?
Don't be in a rush to publish. Discover your style and voice first, learn what your strengths are, your weaknesses. I urge aspiring writers to write three full-length novels before contemplating publication.
Could you describe the room that you write in?
At home, I have a sprawling master suite, with two distinct living areas divided by a three-sided fireplace. I use one side for my bedroom and the other as my office. I have a large window at my back that lets in a lot of natural light, and another large window to my left that overlooks the pool. Directly across from me are French doors that lead to the veranda. The ceiling is high and framed with wide crown molding. A ceiling fan above my desk helps to keep things cool in the heat of Las Vegas summers. Cherry plantation shutters make me feel like I’m on vacation and the dog bed (and dogs!) to my right make it feel like home. On the road, I write wherever I can.
My most recent release is One with You, which concludes the story of Gideon and Eva Cross, a young couple struggling to make their marriage work despite mutually traumatic histories. We’ve watched these two damaged people meet, fall in love, and marry, but exchanging vows brought them a new set of struggles. Their story is both hopeful and heartbreaking. Next up is So Close, the first book in my Blacklist series, which will release next year.
