More About the Author

Best selling author Christina Hollis was born in Somerset, England and was the elder of two children. The Careers department at school gave her the stark choice between nursing and teaching, but both options called for more years of study. All she wanted to do was use her imagination and write, so she escaped from school to get a job - in the financial sector, naturally!
She worked briefly in Marketing, but 'Numbers tend to dance in my head, but not exactly like sugar plums. My job was all about figures, and used more spreadsheets than I felt happy with,' she says now. Around this time, she met her husband on a blind date. They lived in the city for convenience, but both wanted to get away to the peace and quiet of the countryside. After they moved out to rural Gloucestershire, Christina began writing full time about their life in the country. Producing articles and photographs for national magazines by day about their exploits keeping chickens, geese, pigs and growing their own fruit and vegetables, by night she was working on full-length fiction.
Christina has been writing since she was old enough to hold a pencil, and reading for almost as long. Her grandfather and father were both avid readers. Her husband is too, so she has always been surrounded by books. Writing fiction was a natural progression from her magazine work. In 1990 her first full length novel, Knight's Pawn, was published by Harlequin Mills and Boon under the pen name Polly Forrester. After a career break to devote time to raising a family, she joined respected poet Paul Groves' creative writing course to explore other avenues. Here she discovered the art of the short story, and was encouraged to try writing contemporary romance. After several drafts and revisions, her first Mills and Boon Modern Romance, 'The Italian Billionaire's Virgin' was published in 2007. Her books have appeared in lists of best sellers all over the world.
'As well as romantic conflict, I like my books to capture the countryside in all its moods,' she says. 'Reading can take you to a completely different place and time. That's my idea of luxury - the chance to escape from the pressures of everyday life.'

Format: Kindle Edition
I found this story all a bit ridiculous to be honest which constantly contradicted its self. The main female character seemed to bounce from a pathetic defiance to an unhappiness. Some brief un needed bit added about step parents expecting her to fund them and their lifestyle - why???? she was a gardener?? It was all a bit boring to be honest.

And what man creeps up on a woman he has never met and wraps his arms around her without the woman screaming the place down??? Again, ridiculous!

This story was all over the place and quite annoying.

The only redeeming feature of this story was the descriptions of the gardening work!! (not very romantic though).

Very sorry Ms Hollis.
