What would you do if you were desperate and the only person who could help you was your father’s greatest enemy? That’s the dilemma facing my heroine Selene in my latest release, Sold to the Enemy.
But Selene has enough fight in her for two people and she plans to use it to build a new life for herself and her mother. To achieve her goal she needs help from the only man
who isn’t afraid of her father, Stefanos Ziakas. To reach him she must first disguise herself and escape from the island. Then she needs to ask a favor of a man known never to do people favors.
I had so much fun writing the character of Selene and watching her slowly charm tough, cynical Stefan. She brings out a protective side to him and one of my favorite scenes in this book is the sex scene where she is trying to seduce him (she is longing to lose her virginity!) and he is trying to do the right thing.
Selene is both strong and vulnerable, but above all she has an absolute belief that the responsibility for improving her life is in her hands. Having been trapped on an island for most of her life, she is excited to see the world.
Right now, with everything covered in snow around me, I wouldn’t mind a trip to the Greek Islands myself. For those of us who want to look at something other than a winter wonderland, my pictures today are of the Greek island of Corfu (and include a cute Greek cat, whose
picture I’ve been longing to post somewhere for ages because she’s so pretty). I’d love to be there right now — although they have been known to have snow in Corfu!
If you could go anywhere in the world for an all expenses paid week away tomorrow, where would you go?
