An unwanted desire…

With the death of his wife still raw, Jack Connolly’s mood is dark and dangerous. He’s not looking for a woman, until he meets buttoned-up but beautiful Grace Spencer, who stirs his senses back to life. Yet Jack cannot act on his feelings, as Grace belongs to another!

An impossible affair…

Trapped in a fake relationship to safeguard her family, Grace knows crossing the line with Jack would risk everything she holds dear. Beneath the hunger she sees in Jack’s eyes is the promise of something more…but is it enough for her to surrender to a taste of the forbidden?

Anne Mather is here today with a quick Q&A to promote her book The Forbidden Temptation. Check it out!

Q&A with Anne Mather – A Forbidden Temptation

1) What’s your favorite love story? Fiction or non-fiction. I have dozens of favourite love stories, but GREEN DARKNESS and KATHERINE by Anya Seton are high on my list.

2) Is anything in A Forbidden Temptation based on real life experiences or purely all imagination? No, A FORBIDDEN TEMPTATION is not based on any real life experiences, but I can say that the Northumbrian Coast is one of the most beautiful coastlines in the UK and incidentally, I do believe in ghosts.

3) You get a brilliant phrase/idea/thought at an inappropriate time (while driving, drifting off to sleep/in the shower). What do you do? I always make a note of any ideas I have, and in consequence I have a notebook full of them!

4) What’s your favorite line from any movie? I love the film, DIRTY DANCING, and there are many lines from that script I could nominate, not least the most famous ‘nobody puts Baby in the corner.’

5) If you were to create a slogan for your life, what would it be? The only slogan for life I believe is Charles Darwin’s ‘IT IS NOT THE STRONGEST OF THE SPECIES THAT SURVIVES, NOR THE MOST INTELLIGENT, BUT THE ONE MOST RESPONSIVE TO CHANGE’.

6) If you could live anywhere on this planet, and take everything that you love with you, where would you choose to live? Tell us about your choice. I love where I live now, and although I enjoy travelling and seeing different places, I wouldn’t choose to live anywhere else.

7) What was your favorite scene to write in A Forbidden Temptation? Why? I think one of my favourite scenes was when Sean was confronted by Lisa’s ghost. I really wanted Sean to meet his match.

8) What did you find most useful in learning to write? What was least useful or most destructive? I don’t remember having to learn to write. I started scribbling in exercise books as soon as I could write and my stories grew as I did. There’s nothing destructive about writing. It’s the best job in the world.

9) What are five words that describe your writing process? Time, time, discipline, discipline, satisfaction.

10) What are you working on now? What is your next project? I’m in the process of writing my next book for Harlequin Presents. I’m also working on an ebook, SILENT ECHO, that is coming out with Kindle later this year.

About the Author

Anne Mather

Anne Mather is the pseudonym used by Mildred Grieveson, a popular British author of over 160 romance novels. She also signed novels as Caroline Fleming and Cardine Fleming. Mildred Grieveson began to write down stories in her childhood years.

Mildred Grieveson was born on October 10, 1946 in England. She had writtenall through her infant and junior years and on into her teens, the storieschanging from children’s adventures to torrid gypsy passions. Her motherused to gather these up from time to time, when her bedroom became toountidy, and dispose of them!

Mildred has always wanted to write – which is not to say she has alwayswanted to be a professional writer. One the contrary, for years She wroteonly for her own pleasure, and it wasn’t until her husband suggested thatShe ought to send one of her stories to a publisher that they put severalpublishers names into a hat and pulled one out. The trouble was, She neverused to finish any of the stories, and Caroline, her first published book as Anne Mather, was the first book she’d actually completed. She was newlymarried then, and her daughter was just a baby, and it was quite a jobjuggling her household chores and scribbling away in exercise books everychance She got. Not very professional, as you can see, but that’s the way itwas. The rest as they say in history. And now, more than 160 books later,She’s literally – excuse the pun – staggered by what happened. She alsopublished books as Caroline Fleming or Cardine Fleming. Her Anne Mather’snovel, Leopard in the Snow, was developed into a 1978 movie.

Mildred now has two grown-up children, a son and daughter, and two adorablegrandchildren, Abigail and Ben.

    Thanks for this interview. I used to read Anne Mather books many moons ago. I’m trying now to recall the title of one of my favorites. The only thing I seem to recall is a secondary character named Bolt.
