Author Spotlight on Savanna Fox

 Or author spotlight is on Savanna Fox this week. Let's give her a Much Cheaper Than Therapy welcome.


Don’t you wish your book club read “dirty” books? That’s the premise that led Savanna Fox to write The Dirty Girls Book Club (published by Berkley Heat).

When Georgia Malone’s book club makes their first erotic selection, The Sexual Education of Lady Emma Whitehead, the marketing executive is surprised to find herself identifying with the main character. Like Emma, Georgia is a widow who has never truly experienced the joys of sex. When she meets the spokesman for her newest campaign, Georgia’s long-buried libido is awakened. Hockey star Woody Hanrahan is supremely masculine, with rough edges and cocky charm—exactly the sort of man she usually avoids. But while her mind says stay away, Georgia’s body tells her to give in.

As the book club explores the tantalizing extremes of fiction, Georgia experiences first hand, and for the first time, the real pleasures of the flesh, and fulfills the desires that—chapter by chapter—are getting delightfully dirty. Woody is hers to command in a hundred deliciously wicked ways, but an a newly minted dirty girl write her own happy ending—and win not just Woody’s body, but his heart?

This is the first book in a series, which will feature other members of the book club. The Dirty Girls Book Club has also been published in the UK by Penguin. Take a look at the UK cover compared to the American one!

What a fascinating concept. I'm not really much into erotic fiction but I can't wait to read your book because your approach is so fresh and new. Thanks for stopping at "Therapy."

Thank you so much, Connie! I actually don't read much erotica either. Mine is definitely on the "light" side. My books are way more about the development of the romance, the characters exploring their issues, the women discussing relationships and other things that interest them and becoming friends along the way. But yes, there is also definitely sex in there!! I loved the old "Sex And The City" TV show and think of my writing as a lot like that. I hope you enjoy the book. When you've read it, I'd love it if you dropped by my website and sent me a note telling me what you thought.
