Welcome to Piatkus, Lia Riley!
This Summer, Autumn and Winter we are publishing the fantastic debut New Adult series, Off the Map, written by Lia Riley! Starting off on the sandy beaches of Santa Cruz, California, this series follows Natalia on her study abroad year in Australia and what happens when she meets the activist, surfer and fellow run-away Bran. Read on for more on the first in the series, Upside Down . . .
If you never get lost, you’ll never be found . . .
Twenty-one-year-old Natalia Stolfi is saying goodbye to painful memories—and turning her life upside down with a trip to the land down under. For the next six months, she’ll pretend to be a carefree exchange student. Everything is going to plan until she meets a surly surfer with hypnotic green eyes, and the troubling ability to see straight through her act.
Bran Lockhart is having the worst year on record. After the girl of his dreams turned into a nightmare, he slunk back to Melbourne to piece his life together. Yet no amount of disappointment could blind him to the pretty California girl who gets past all his defenses. He’s never wanted anyone the way he wants Talia. A single semester abroad won’t cover something this serious. But when Bran gets a stark reminder of why he stopped believing in love, he and Talia must decide if what they have is once in a lifetime . . . or if they were meant to live a world apart.
‘Upside Down gave me all the feels. Romantic and poignant, the journey of love and acceptance lingers long after the book is closed’
– Jennifer L. Armentrout/J. Lynn, # 1 New York Times bestselling author
Upside Down is published August 5th 2014, followed by Sideswiped on October 7th and Inside Out on December 5th! Paperbacks follow in 2015!
