Maya Cross is an Australian author of erotica and contemporary romance novels.
She loved reading from an early age, given that her mother worked in a bookstore.
As such, it wasn’t a surprise when she finally picked up a pen and paper and wrote stories of her own.
Although she has previously written across a number of genres such as horror, science fiction, and fantasy, she chose this pseudonym as her way of expressing her steamy and passionate thoughts.
Whenever she isn’t writing, Maya can be found playing tennis, searching for inspiration in her hometown of Sydney, and drinking more coffee than she should be.

Detailed book overview
Grace's life is crumbling to dust before her eyes. A tragic loss turned her world upside down, leaving her alone, unemployed and seeking solace at the bottom of a bottle. It feels like there is no coming back from this, until she meets Logan Anderson.
Built like a warrior, with ink-marked skin and sorrowful eyes, something about him calls to her. There is a darkness there, a darkness bred from years of fighting for his country. Now the king of a local MMA league, the ring is all that brings him joy anymore. Discipline and adrenaline get him through the day.
Logan understands what Grace is going through, and he's determined not to let her destroy herself. But to save her will require more than just friendly support. It will mean letting her in, and that will put both their hearts at risk. Logan's demons are buried, but they're far from gone, and it will only take the tiniest stumble to bring them roaring back to the surface.
Can two damaged people find the strength to save one another? Or will their love break them for good?
The Alpha Group Trilogy
“Who is Sebastian Lock?”
The bar Sophia Pearce is in doesn't look like much. The wine is bad and the decor worse. But when a sudden attack of curiosity leads her to sneak past security and into the back room, she discovers something unimaginable. The most lavish party she's ever laid eyes on, in the most unlikely of places.
But that's nothing compared to what comes next, to the man she meets back there. Sebastian Lock. Gorgeous, commanding, and radiating charm, he is exactly the sort of silver-tongued rake Sophia has sworn to avoid. Unfortunately, he doesn't care much for her promises.
Every instinct tells her to run, but the chemistry between them is as inescapable as gravity. Soon, he's opening her eyes to a whole new world of pleasures, pleasures she never thought she'd enjoy.
There's just one problem. Sebastian is more than he seems. Between the famous company he keeps and the almost paranoid secrecy of his employers, he's a puzzle Sophia can't quite solve, and his insistence on keeping things casual forces her to confront the demons of her past.
Can she learn to trust again? Or will Sebastian's privacy tear them apart?
Sophia had never felt attraction like that before. Raw. Electric. Irresistible. Swept off her feet by the dashing, enigmatic billionaire Sebastian Lock, she was taken on a journey of self-discovery, taken to places she never dreamed she'd go.
But things are never as simple as they appear. Sophia's trust is a fragile thing, and Sebastian seems intent on testing it. He has his own demons to battle, and nobody has brought them to the fore like she has.
As their relationship deepens, and Sophia begins to break down his walls, all that greets her are more questions. Why is Sebastian fighting so hard to keep her at a distance? Who is the girl on his phone? And why does the strange tattoo on his chest seem so familiar?
These puzzles plague her, but as Sebastian's mysteries begin to unravel, she must face an entirely different truth. Staying in the dark may be painful, but knowing the answers could be deadly.
The heart can lead you to dangerous places. Abandoned by the man she loves, with nothing more than sweet words and riddles for an explanation, Sophia Pearce felt like her life was crumbling before her eyes. And then they came for her. Now, things will never be the same.
Confronted with the truth about Sebastian's identity, she's thrust into a high stakes world beyond anything she could have imagined. A world that threatens much more than just her feelings. Sebastian's enemies will stop at nothing to get what they want, and they want her.
Their passion for one another consumes them, but as the danger mounts, and loyalties are tested, Sophia must answer one simple question. What is she willing to risk for love?
