Maya Banks, already an established author of the KGI and Sweet erotic fiction series, has her Breathless trilogy, which is sure to interest readers of E.L. James' Fifty Shades, due in 2013.
Penguin imprint Berkley Books snapped up the three novels for an undisclosed seven-figure sum, with the first book, Rush, due February 2013.
Each follows one of three men, all of whom are billionaires, best friends, and like to "dominate in both the boardroom and the bedroom."
The publishing house is evidently anticipating high demand for the Breathless trio, with Fever scheduled for April and Burn coming in August.
The new books mean that two other Banks titles are being pushed back, with Theirs to Keep and Colters' Gift given the nudge.
