Earlier this year, Headline Books (U.K.) and Simon & Schuster (U.S.) were among the publishing houses, worldwide, that announced their plans to publish A Pound of Flesh by Sophie Jackson. This week, we learned new details about the series: Publisher’s Weekly and MStars News are reporting that the novels will form a trilogy! The first book, A Pound of Flesh, comes out summer 2015, and will be followed by Ounce of Pain, and A World Of Pleasure. If you’ll recall, the series follows a headstrong female prison tutor who finds out that her handsome student is “more than he appears to be.”
Publishers speak very highly of the series. According to Kate Byrne from Headline Books:
A Pound of Flesh is an extraordinary book, packing an emotional punch on so many levels, beginning as the ultimate forbidden love story with an irresistible bad boy hero and a feisty, complex heroine, drawn together by a secret which connects them in way they cannot foresee. I, and the whole Headline Eternal team, were blown away by Sophie’s innate storytelling ability, her remarkable authentic American voice and the intensity of emotion, passion and true love she brings so vividly to life.
I couldn’t agree more! PoF still evokes so many strong feelings and memories for me. It’s a story that’s epic in the truest sense of the word, and I’m extremely excited to be able to hold my copy in my hands next summer!
