Everything started in 2015 when Hanleigh wrote her first book, Broken Rules, a book about Aurora Stone and Landon Peters, two people living in the city of London. That very first book has taken Hanleigh on a crazy journey with hundreds of characters and places. This series was finally completed in 2018 when Hanleigh published A Secret Melody, a short stand-alone novella about Landon's deceased sister. Hanleigh chose to write the novella because countless readers had reached out to her to ask for her story. It was a strange story for Hanleigh to write as it didn't fall into her usual genre, Contemporary Romance.
