More About the Author

Join New York Times best selling author Christina Dodd's mailing list to have her news delivered right to your inbox! http://christinadodd.com

In 2014, Christina is publishing the Lost Hearts series in e-book, all enhanced with extra material:
And Christina's all-new series, Virtue Falls, starts with:
-- THE LISTENER: A Virtue Falls e-Short Story (July 1)
-- VIRTUE FALLS: A Full-Length Suspense (Sept 9)

Readers become writers, and Christina Dodd has always been a reader. She reads everything, but because she loves humor, she likes romance best. A woman wants things like world peace, a clean house, and a deep and meaningful relationship based on mutual understanding and love. A man wants things like a Craftsman router with attachments, undisputed control of the TV remote, and a red Corvette which will miraculously make his bald spot disappear. When Christina's first daughter was born, she told her husband she was going to quit work and write a book. It was a good time to start a new career, because how much trouble could one little infant be?

Ha! It took ten years, two children and three completed manuscripts before her first novel, CANDLE IN THE WINDOW, was published to great acclaim. In the years since, she has enjoyed writing witty, emotional novels for every reader: suspense, historical romances, paranormal romances, romantic suspense. Her stories have been translated into 25 languages, won the prestigious Golden Heart and RITA Awards and been called the year's best by Library Journal. Christina Dodd herself has been a clue in the Los Angeles Times crossword puzzle (11/18/05, # 13 Down: Romance Novelist named Christina.) Publishers Weekly praises her style that 'showcases Dodd's easy, addictive charm and steamy storytelling.' With more than fifteen million of her books in print, her legions of fans always know that when they pick up a Christina Dodd book, they know they've found a story "For the wild at heart!"

Christina Dodd is married to a man with all his hair and no Corvette, but many Craftsman tools.

"Rules of Attraction" is book three in the popular Governess Brides series set in Victorian England and it is as good as the previous two. Miss Hannah Setterington, the third co-founder ot The Distinguished Academy of Governesses decides to sell up and go in search of her mysterious past.She accepts a position as a companion to Lord Raeburn's elderly aunt in a remote old castle.Hannah is an attractive young woman who has come far and who has accomplished a lot during the past few years of her life. Dougald Pippard, Lord Raeburn is a darkly handsome man who is full of bitterness and a thirst for revenge. Rumour says that he murdered his wife and he never publicly denied it. Their first encounter is a deep shock for Hannah but she reminds herself that she is a strong-minded woman and she shows Dougald her depth and strength. Their attraction is undeniable and their strong efforts to fight it are useless. I admire the author's rich resources in characters. The leading female and male representatives are very similar in all three books but at the same time they are all unique. They all have their own characteristic features and they are perfectly introduced to the reader. It is very fascinating to watch them develop, react and grow in front of us. I find this last book probably the most mysterious and most serious of the three. Still, the storyline is very interesting, full of unexpected turns and even a pinch of warm humour. Hannah and Dougald are a matching pair and their passionate battle of the sexes keeps our attention engaged until the end. The supporting characters are delightful and I found the bunch of elderly ladies refreshing and their antics heartwarming.
RULES OF ATTRACTION is a worthy conclusion of the story of the three governess friends. The author's writing style is very enjoyable and she has written another high standard historical romance.

Hate vs Love: 1-99
great story, however, the ending was rushed and that set me a bit back. The reason of the murders of the previous Lords are kind of stupid.
BUT the attraction and love between Hannah and Dougald... just overwhelming!

for all fans of christina dodd...an interesting resolution to her "3 governesses" cast of loveable & dynamic ladies... though i must admit to not having expected the twist in the tale & was surprised at what an enjoyable story it made...of course Hannah's character is much more clearly defined than in the last 2 bks...where she had a small tho' pivotal role... she sets off to a new post as companion to some of the wackiest old ladies you'll have the pleasure of meeting...a young Queen Victoria w/entourage makes a cameo appearance...and the mysterious nobleman is classic!!!...we also meet Pamela & Charlotte again...a MUST BUY....
