We are thrilled to announce that Gia de Cadenet’s, author of NOT THE PLAN and GETTING HIS GAME BACK, two untitled romance novels completing the Sarda Brothers series; have been sold to Anne Speyer at Bantam Dell, with Mae Martinez editing, in a two-book deal (World English)!

The two untitled romance novels will follow the reclusive eldest brother of the Sarda Brothers in a heartwarming and spicy grumpy-grumpy romance, and the final installment about Darius, Khalil’s best friend, who struggles to find love while being the primary caregiver to a parent.

A native Floridian, Gia de Cadenet dreamed of living in France when she was a child. In 2006, she put her promising career on hold for two years to get a master’s degree in Paris. But a few short weeks after arriving, she bumped into a red-headed Frenchman and her fate was sealed. A decade later, she got serious about her second big dream: becoming a published author. Her first manuscript, Not The Plan, was showcased in the 2017 PitchWars mentorship program. It went on to become a finalist in both the Maggie Award for Excellence Contest of the Georgia Romance Writers Association, and the Elevation of Love Contest of the Cultural, Interracial, Multicultural chapter of the Romance Writers of America Association. A Twitter pitch contest in 2018 led to a contract with Transatlantic Literary Agency, and a two-book deal with Penguin Random House in 2020.

Deal arranged by Leonicka Valcius

Congratulations Gia!
