Read full description of the books:I really really enjoyed this book. The author was able to create such tension without relying on the typical "Hero/jerk" complex. Though Andreas, was one healthy, sexy, arrogant leading man...he was not cruel, abusive or vindictive. In fact, he was the exact opposite! He was a man on a mission....focused on wooing the heroine in his totally Greek macho way! I appreciate when an author can build tremendous tension, drama, sexual chemistry and passion without having to rely on the standard "formula". This was a wonderful change of pace.
The only negative that I could find with this novel, is that the author did not really understand the Greek culture and made some very bad mistakes in her writing. One example is at the end, the wedding she described was not a Greek wedding and it would have been very unlikely to find an Anglican Church on a Greek island. I feel if you are going to write about exotic locales with exotic characters, you should make an effort to better understand the culture and accurately represent it to your readers. However, I could look past that because the rest of the story was so wonderful!
Read information about the authorRita Bradshaw was born on 1950 in Northampton, England, where she was educated as a good Christian. She met Clive, her husband, at the age of 16 andnow the magic is still there. They have three lovely children, Cara, Faye, and Benjamin, and have always had a menagerie of animals in the house, whichat the present is confined to two endearing and very comical dogs who wouldmake a great double act on TV! The children, friends, and pets all keep thehouse buzzing and the food cupboards empty but Helen wouldn't have it anyother way. She still lives today in Northampton with her family. Althoughhaving enjoyed some wonderful holidays abroad she has never been tempted tolive anywhere else, although she rather likes the idea of a holiday homeclose to the sea one day.
Being a committed Christian and fervent animal lover she finds spare time is always at a premium, but long walks in the countryside with her husband and dogs, meals out followed by the cinema or theatre, reading, swimming,and having friends over for dinner are all fitted in somehow. She also enjoys sitting in her wonderfully therapeutic, rambling old garden in thesun with a glass of red wine, (under the guise of resting while thinking ofcourse!)
For years, she was a secretary. She began writing in 1990 as sheapproached that milestone of a birthday 40! She realized her two teenage ambitions (writing a novel and learning to drive) had been lost amid babiesand hectic family life, so set about resurrecting them.
Her first novel was for Mills and Boon and was accepted after one rewrite in 1992 as Helen Brooks, and she passed her driving test (the former was a joy and the latteran unmitigated nightmare!) She has written 50 novels as well as several sagas as Rita Bradshaw.
Since becoming a full-time writer she has found her occupation one of purejoy and often surprised when her characters develop a mind of their own bu tshe loves exploring what makes people tick and finds the old adage "truth isstranger than fiction" to be absolutely true. She would love to hear from any readers care of Mills & Boon.
