How do you keep coming up with fresh characters and stories?
Inspiration is everywhere and each time I have an idea for a hero or heroine or even ‘see’ a scene in my mind, I make notes and then file it away on my computer to bring out another day.
Who do you like to read?
I have always loved to read romance, but I am also partial to historical fiction and am particularly intrigued by the Tudor period of British history.
What’s your favorite place to read?
My favorite place to read it snuggled down in bed, but if I’m completely immersed by a book I will read wherever and whenever I can.
What are some of your reading pet peeves?
An unsatisfying ending!
Tell us a little about your book…
Emma Sanders has been given a contract which could get her photography career started and it’s in Russia, where her sister is studying ballet. Nikolai Cunningham is outraged when he discovers his grandmother is prepared to reveal the tainted secrets of his family’s past and travels from his New York home to Russia to meet the photographer before she can talk to his grandmother. Neither of them anticipated the sexual chemistry which leaps to life between them – or the consequences of one passionate night.
