#Win A Forbidden Temptation by Anne Mather (US)

MILDRED GRIEVENSON wrote only for her own pleasure, until her husband suggested that she send one of her stories to a publisher. The trouble was, she never used to finish any of the stories, and Caroline, her first published book as Anne Mather, was the first book she'd actually completed.


It  was quite a job juggling her household chores while scribbling away every chance she got. But now with more than 160 books to her name, she's staggered by what has happened. 







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'.

Anne was my first author and the one that topped all others through my teenage years and in young adulthood. I love her heroines, they are so strong and full of grace and class and of course her passionate heroes.

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.  There’s only one roadblock, he can’t act on his feelings because Grace belongs to someone else.
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?

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

7th Blogoversary! (#Giveaway)

Back in 2009, I decided to start this blog for book reviews. I had my other blog for photography, but didn't want to mix anything with it. So Freda's Voice was born.

I deleted the first post I ever wrote. It was just a bunch of blathering on about starting the blog. Much like the first paragraph here.


So let's get to the good stuff.
You know I can only celebrate how far Freda's Voice has come by giving back to you, the readers. Without you, this would be for me and me alone, and what would be the point in that?!

There will be one US and one Canadian winner. They can each choose a book from Amazon valued at $10 or less. 

Easy enough, right?!
