Chapter 1: Tanya Rock moves to Sunset Valley

Tanya Rock has arrived to Sunset Valley.  She's taken her life savings and purchased a lot of land in a nice neighborhood that hasn't been fully developed yet.  She has decided to build the house herself (with the help of a few contractors of course) instead of buying a pre-made home.

This unfortunately leaves her without a lot of necessities at first, and as such she immediately starts to go through her available funds buying the basics such as bedding, a few appliances and a computer.

After she gets settled in a bit, Tanya realizes that a great way to start earning some cash while her house is still being built would be to write a book or two using that computer she just bought.  She truly wants to become the next big rock star (a dream she's had since she was a little girl and she thought it would be cool since her last name is Rock), but knows that she will have to put that dream aside for the time being.  It just takes too long to get started and she needs money now.

She sits down at her desk and just starts writing, hoping to improve her skill enough to produce a decent book.  Tanya is shocked at how easily the words start to flow once she gets started and soon finds several chapters under her belt.  Before she knows it, the clock reads 3am and her stomach is growling so she decides to take a break and finish the book another day.

She does this for several days in a row and soon she has her first book finished and is so excited when her publishers tell her she'll be receiving several royalty checks over the next few weeks.  Tanya can breathe easier for a bit.

Her next plan is to go to the neighborhood park and meet some of her neighbors and is ecstatic when she runs into her first celebrity: Connor Frio.  Tanya takes a chance and goes over to introduce herself.  Of course at first he wants nothing to do with her, until he hears she is a published author.  This impresses him enough for them to start building a friendship.

Tanya immediately was attracted to Connor and wants to take him back to her place (she is a very flirtatious party-animal after all).  He however wants to take things much slower and declines the invitation for now.

Tanya is quite persistent though and after several invitations he agrees to come by.  The two hit it off over the course of the next few days, the only hiccup in the relationship is when Tanya insists on flirting.  Connor, you see, does not like to flirt.  In fact, he detests it.  It takes a few meetings for Tanya to find a way around this dislike but eventually he admits he is attracted to her as well and the two begin to have some serious chemistry.

A few days after Connor admits his feelings, Tanya invites him over with the sole intention of finally having her way with him.  He resists just enough to remain a gentleman, but does succumb to her advances and the two quickly find themselves woohooing the night away.

A couple days after their date, Tanya starts to feel a little sick to her stomach, but doesn't think much of it at first.  It takes several more days before it dawns on her that she is now going to be a mother, and her life has changed forever....
