Synopsis: 
I didn’t mean to hurt anyone, especially him…
I was living the dream. I had a great career as a romance author, a successful boyfriend, and am the daughter to a New York power couple. With my standing, my family groomed me to be perfect. Despite having it all, something was still missing.
In an attempt to break away from my privileged, suffocating life, I was in pursuit of finding my own path to happiness. After my literary agent gave me a risky writing assignment, I set out to write a best-seller that took me completely out of my comfort zone and into the arms of another man. He was only supposed to be a research toy, falling in love wasn’t a part of the plan. As I become tangled into a huge web of lies, I quickly find out that I have a life changing decision to make. Do I choose to continue living a life of comfort, stability, and misery or do I take a chance on the unknown to preserve my happiness?







Author Bio:
Victoria Bright is from a small town in North Carolina and currently resides in Greenville, South Carolina. She has been writing since she was in the eighth grade, starting with small short stories. As her classmates began showing interest in her work, she began to write longer stories, filling multiple spiral notebooks with her thoughts. During her freshman year in high school, her English teacher encouraged her to enter a writing contest in which she won local, region and state levels. She has entered many writing contests since and have won a few. Figuring out she had a passion to share stories with anyone who would listen, she set out to write her first book Love Unbroken.

Victoria is very versatile in the genre of books she likes to read. Her bookchoice mostly varies on her mood, but she is particularly interested in crime stories, romance, teen fiction, sci-fi, and is now venturing a little in paranormal fiction. As for her own writing, she doesn't really put it into a category or genre. She just writes whatever is on her mind and lets it create itself!

Want to know more about Victoria Bright, read on for a recent interview:


1. What inspired The Daring Assignment?
I wasn’t technically “inspired” to write it. One of my best friends is a graphic designer and we talk a lot about the trends and such going on in the book world. She constantly pressed me about writing an erotica simply because it was “popular” thanks to FSoG. Being a prude, I dismissed the idea and refused to. She literally wouldn’t shut up about it, so I caved in and gave it a try. I figured that if I had to write it, I needed to write in a way that would relate to me in a way to make it a bit easier. Now that it’s written, I’m kind of glad I did it and am glad I stepped WAY out of my comfort zone to produce something like that.

2. Were the characters inspired by real people or purely your imagination?
Arianna was made in my image in a way (prude, romance author, which is what I am in real life) and Gia is a mix between my best friend and myself. Gia has my best friend’s perverted, sex-crazed side while having my sarcastic, witty, humorous side. Douchebag Julius, Arianna’s horrid parents, and delicious Zane were all from my imagination. I mean, does a man like Zane really even exist? If so, I call dibs on him!

3. There are a few sizzling scenes with Zane. Are you writing from experience?
Ha! I wish! If they did, I wouldn’t have lived to write about it because I probably wouldn’t die from embarrassment or something. But no, they are all fiction, but very good fiction if I must say so myself.

4. What plans do you have for the Curvy Assignments series?
I just finished Dangerous Concoctions, which picks up from Zane’s point of view. His book is the biggest book I’ve written to date, sitting at 100K words. His book is more of an erotic suspense, as you get a taste of his past and how it alters his life when it mixes with his current life. I’m also doing a book for Gia as well, but it’s untitled at the moment. After writing Zane’s book (which is full of sex, omg), I think I need to cleanse my writing palate and write something different before I settle down with Gia. I’m hoping to have Zane’s book published in June! It’s with my editor and publisher now, so the process has just started for it.

5. What are you currently working on?
I’m about to start a book that will shine light on Lupus, a disease that I battle every day. May is Lupus Awareness month and I would like to publish a book with a character battling the things I deal with on. I feel that since I have the platform to spread awareness about something that affects me greatly, it would be a cool idea to put my struggles into the form of a story.

6. How can readers keep up with updates about you and your books?
There are multiple ways! I post things to my blog on my author website (I’m a bit bad at that, but whatevs) at www.victoriabright.com. You can sign up for my newsletter and the bottom of the home page (you have to click on the home button
once you choose to either go to the erotica or romance side). You can also like my Facebook page at www.facebook.com/VictoriaBrightAuthor. If you have twitter, you should totally tweet me at www.twitter.com/authorvictoriab. It’ll definitely make me feel special!
