One alluring French-Filipina beauty. One sexy US Air Force officer. One torrid weekend affair.

Maddie Duvall should be living it up at her challenging new job in glamorous Singapore. But two months after her wild weekend with Aidan Ryan, she’s still yearning for him. She craves the passion only he can ignite in her. 

Aidan’s job takes him around the world, yet he can’t get Maddie out of his mind. When he returns to his assignment in Singapore, he seeks her out with a proposition she can’t turn down.

Intensely enamored with one another, their relationship takes off. But when Aidan’s mission exposes treachery by someone close to Maddie, lines blur and wires get crossed. Can their growing love survive the intrigue?

Singapore Fling is Book 2 of Carpe Diem Chronicles, a series of multicultural contemporary romance novels. The stories celebrate the rich cultures of exotic Southeast Asian islands through languages, food, and festivals.

PRAISE FOR SINGAPORE FLING

“This second full-length volume in her Carpe Diem Chronicles is sexy, quick to read, and full of well-rounded, interesting characters. Family ties and female friendship add to the depth of the world and make you want more books.” ~ Catherine Stein, Award-winning Author of How to Seduce a Spy

“This book was great. Everything from the well-rounded characters to the interesting foods and exciting locale drew me in as a reader. I could clearly picture, hear, and smell/taste the story. The plot was perfect and the romance had just the right amount of intrigue and crisis. ~ Danielle Bellwood, Author of Daring (The Candomble Book 1)

“This book is a great deal of fun and the hero and heroine are both likable and realistic people. As usual, Malby’s writing shines best when writing about Singapore, particularly the culture and the FOOD!! ~ Gena Gilliam, Amazon Reviewer

MAIDA MALBY’S
SINGAPORE FLING SCRAPBOOK

I lived and worked in Singapore twice. The first time was from 2001-2002. I was an associate director for an American media communications company, handling a regional account. This is one of the reasons why I consider Singapore Fling an #ownvoice novel.  

Top - Me in front of Raffles Hotel, home of Singapore Sling, the inspiration for the title of the book. Bottom - Me in front and back of the Merlion in Sentosa Island. This inspired the cover.

From 2003 to 2005, I was a director for a business unit of a media communications company, leading a multicultural staff.


Left - Me in a Filipino barong blouse and sarong skirt, showing off a temporary henna tattoo on my ankle. Maddie has ankle tattoos of Scorpio symbols. Middle - Me in a cheongsam during a performance at a company event. Hand on hip is my signature pose as well as Maddie’s. Right - Me wearing an orchid garland at an event in Siloso Beach, Sentosa Island. Orchid is the prominent flower in Singapore Fling.

My last visit to Singapore was in 2012 to celebrate a milestone birthday.

Views of Chijmes, Marina Bay, and Singapore Botanic Gardens. These places are mentioned in the book.

  1. Cool! I had to look-up the merlion -- that's amazing! Looking at these pics ignites the wanderlust in me. So much to see. Thanks for the post!

  2. I had fun digging up these photos from the years I lived, worked, and visited Singapore. They were some of the happiest times of my life. One of the reasons why I set my book there is so that I can "visit" any time, any day.
