Lynne Graham on Cinderella Stories and &amp;quot;A Ring to Secure His Heir&amp;quot;
More than any other theme, I enjoy a Cinderella story in which the heroine comes from a poor and troubled background and the hero sweeps her off into his wealthy world. But please note that he doesn’t rescue her. My heroine may be poor but she’s strong and if my hero wants her it’s because he recognises her special qualities and appreciates them.
In A Ring to Secure his Heir, Rosie is a cleaner and Alexius Stavroulakis is merely checking her out on his godfather’s behalf. The power of attraction swiftly overturns Alex’s cool calculated
plans and a one
night-stand follows. Rosie initially assumes she has misinterpreted the depth of Alex’s interest but has she? And does even Alex know what he’s doing? From that point on, events snowball until Alex is no longer in control and Rosie’s defiance outrages his pride.
How Rosie tames her man lies at the heart of this story.
