More About the Author

Maisey Yates started writing stories from the moment she first learned how to form words with a pen. But she never had any idea what to write, and most stories sat started, half formed and half finished, but never completed.
During her high school and college years she spent a lot of time dreaming about holding a book in her hands that had her name emblazoned across the front, but she did a lot more dreaming than actual writing.
At her very first job she was fortunate enough to meet her very own tall, dark and handsome hero, who happened to be her boss, and promptly married him and started a family. It wasn't until she was pregnant with her second child that she found her very first Harlequin Presents in a local thrift store. She'd never read a Harlequin romance before, and by the time she'd reached the happily ever after she had fallen in love. She devoured as many as she could get her hands on after that, and she knew that these were the books she wanted to write!
Soon after that she saw online that Harlequin was running a competition to win an editor for a year. She decided that was her sign to get in gear and start writing again. So she wrote her chapter and synopsis and hit send with trembling hands. She didn't get any feedback from the contest, but it was the boost she needed to get her first full manuscript finished and submitted to Presents.
Nearly two years later, while pregnant with her third child, she received The Call from her editor, informing her they wanted to buy that manuscript. She was very glad that the good news didn't send her promptly into labor!
She still can't quite believe she's blessed enough to see her name on, not just any book, but her favorite books.
Maisey lives with her supportive, wonderful, diaper-changing husband and three small children across the street from her parents, and the home she grew up in, in the wilds of Southern Oregon.
She enjoys the contrast of living in a place where you might wake up to find a bear on your back porch and then heading into the home office to write stories that take place in exotic, urban locales.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK 14 Oct 2010
By Laura TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
Have read M&B for years. Don't read as many as I used to as they are becoming a bit "samey". However, bought this one as it was a new author and had read the reviews but would say it was just OK. Worth a read but nothing spectacular.

3.0 out of 5 stars Pleasantly surprised 5 Oct 2010
By Damaskcat HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
It must be at least twenty years since I last read a Mills & Boon romance so I thought I'd give this one a try to see if they've changed. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of this publication and the seriousness of the issues covered. In this book Alison decides to have a baby by artificial insemination.

Unfortunately in a clinic mix up her baby is fathered by someone who isn't the donor she selected. The father is Prince Maximo - the future ruler of a small Italian kingdom. What happens when Alison visits Max shows how emotions are scrambles by such a mix up and what two intelligent people can do about the complex situation they're faced with.

The book was more explicit than the stories were a quarter of a century ago and therefore more realistic. The background of wealth and luxury is fantasy of course but this Prince is far from being a playboy and is actively involved in managing the economy of his country as well as being an artist in his leisure hours.

I thought the relationship between the two main characters was well drawn as is the way Alison - a twentyfirst century independent American woman - reacts to having her life controlled for her. Overall I was impressed with this modern day Mills & Boon romance and while they are not really my thing these days I may be dipping into the odd one or two if I want something escapist with which to relax.

2.0 out of 5 stars mediocre at best 4 Nov 2010
By Mrs. A. Wright VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Because of a mistake at an IVF Clinic Alison is carrying the baby of Maximo the Prince of Turan. Alison wants a baby but not a husband Maximo desperately wanted a child but not a wife. He cannot however countenance an illegitimate heir. The story tells how they resolve their problems. the plot is rather weak and the characters weaker. The author tries to arouse sympathy for both Alison and Maximo but I never quite believed or liked the characters. The appearance of the King and Queen and the Princess Isabella aroused a spark of interest but sadly their appearance was too brief to lift the story from the realms of boredom. Even the balcony scene where they meet their subjects and the world press and the chase of Isabella and Allison by the press failed to grab my interest. I did not like this book. I have not read any others by Maisey Yates but I doubt very much if I search for any.

5.0 out of 5 stars An entertaining and fun romance 6 Oct 2010
By Voracious for Books VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
What are the chances of an I.V.F. mix up making two perfect strangers parents? Well according to all those tabloid stories, and despite the risks of clinics being sued, just about anything's possible. So I didn't have to suspend my belief while reading this very enjoyable romance by Maisey Yates. Alison Whitman is a young lawyer determined to not rely emotionally on any man, so she isn't interested in getting married or ever being anything other than independent. She likes to be in control of her life, so she works hard, saves up and puts money aside, because she plans to become a single mother. She plans to take time off work so that she can be there for her much anticipated, precious baby. First, when the insemination is successful, she's overjoyed, and then she gets a call from the clinic telling her there has been a mix up. Instead of an anymous sperm donor, they accidentally used the wrong sample.

Weirdly Alison has a friend who works at the I.V.F. clinic and gives her the address and name of the man whose sample she was mistakenly impregnated with (surely giving out that kind of confidential info is a sackable offence?). She decides to tell him in person that he is going to become a father. Two years before Maximo Rossi and his wife were having fertility treatment for his wife, Selena's infertility. As his wife has since been killed in a car accident, he was too grief stricken to think of asking the fertility clinic to destroy his samples.

When Alison arrives at his address she relalises that he must be wealthy, and when she is greeted by security staff she assumes he must be a pretty important man. On finding out that he is foreign royalty, the prince to a Monaco-like Italian speaking principality; she is thrown for a loop.

1.0 out of 5 stars A bit dated 8 Dec 2010
By I. H. C. Mellor VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The story of a girl who is carrying a baby courtesy of an IVF clinic but the father turns out (following a mistake) to be a royal prince, who is not looking for a wife, but would eventually like a child. The story interweaves the two characters together in a rather sloppy romance that is the standard for this type of book. Niether character is very likable and the story, while trying to gain the reader's sympathy for them, is a little lackustre. This book does not really interest me, there are no real points of surprise and it is all rather too tedious and unlikely, not my cup of tea I'm afraid.

2.0 out of 5 stars Typical storyline - not original 7 Nov 2010
By Clare VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The storyline is very generic - a mix up at the IVF clinic results in Alison being pregnant with the wrong persons baby...and the father is a prince. He wants to get married to make the baby legitimate, she doesn't. I really like romance stories and whilst the storylines can be very similar there was nothing in this story to raise it above others and make it unique. The interaction between Alison and Max's parents (the King and Queen) was brief and had no real depth to it or time invested in expanding it and whilst I really liked Max's little sister I felt a bit like the info I was given was just setting the scene for her own book (which I'd probably read as I liked the character.)

I found after a while I was skim reading to get to 'good' parts. It was an enjoyable enough read but this book didn't stand out for me or make me feel invested in what was happening to the characters. It won't be one for keeping on the shelf.
