Sarah Morgan on "Sold to the Enemy"

by Sarah Morgan, author of Sold to the Enemy (Harlequin Presents, February 2013)

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.

 Trapped on a remote Greek island with her abusive billionaire father and her terrified mother, she really is between the devil and the deep blue sea.

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?

    Anywhere for a week. I would be on the next jet that would let me meet my all time favorite author.
    You 🙂

    I would start with Britain. That would keep me pretty occupied for quite a while.

    Middle East I would say Cairo but bit of a mess at the moment for the pyramids and sphinx however now it would be Dubai desert, oasis, camels and of course Sheikhs…sighs yes that is one place I would love to go and I hate the heat..still the romance of it sand-dunes, sunsets and oasis riding off into the sunset can’t beat it 🙂 one can’t beat those Sheikhs.

    Your story set me dreaming of sun and warmth and a slow, Mediterranean pace to life. I’d go to North Cyprus, where things are still old-world. There may be millionaires… but unlike your Selene, I wouldn’t be desperate to get away.

    I would go to Ireland. Have always wanted to go.

    Deb, thank you for that lovely compliment – I’d love to meet you too! I can just imagine what fun we’d have 😀

    Fiona, some of my favourite places are in Britain – I love the wild Cornish coastline and the mountains of the Lake District (although lovely author Kate Hewitt who now lives there will point out that it rains most of the time!!). If you come, I’m sure we can all find plenty to occupy you 😀

    Jan, the Middle East would be exciting. Author Trish Morey is there at the moment and I’ve been following her Facebook posts and drooling with envy while watching snow and rain alternate outside my window. Jealous? Me? Hardly at all 😀

    LOL Beth if I were in Cyprus I wouldn’t be in a hurry to get away either, that’s for sure!

    Renee, Ireland is so beautiful. I’ve only been a few times and not for many years (I keep telling author Abby Green to brace herself for a visit!). Some of the authors went there on a writer’s retreat (which is another phrase for a holiday where you don’t get any work done) early in January. Caitlin Crews/Megan Crane posted some wonderful photos on her Facebook page.

    Sarah, I adore the sound of this new story. I’ve just enjoyed your ‘Woman in a Sheikh’s World’ and am all set to move on to Corfu. I can’t wait to read the scene you mentioned.

    Where would I go? Almost anywhere. Morocco and Cyprus are places I’ve always wanted to visit, and Petra and central America. Interestingly, I was hoping to take a holiday in Europe this year but sadly it’s not happening (never mind, the planning will come in handy) and one of the places I’d had in mind was Corfu!

    Hi Annie, Petra and central America sound amazing. Sorry you won’t be coming to Europe 🙁 Corfu is beautiful, I recommend it!
    Glad you enjoyed Woman in a Sheikh’s World

    Hi Sarah!
    My dream place to visit is Corfu. I have it on my to do list so here’s hoping it won’t be too long before I get there. It’s research, right?!
    Can’t wait to read this book. I’m sure it will be as brilliant and sexy and sizzling as your others.

    Mel, it is definitely research! Some parts of the island are quieter than others and unlike many other Greek islands it is very green. It is a giant olive grove 🙂 I hope you make it there one day x

    Love the cat picture! There were certainly a lot of cats around when we were in Greece, way back when. An all expense paid trip to New Zealand would top my list right now.

    Hi Kaelee, there are certainly plenty of cats and this one was particularly cute 😀 A trip to New Zealand would be wonderful, I agree. Dream, dream…… (for me it’s a dream, but I hope you make it there!!)
