Tote Bag of Books Presents Special - Margaret Mayo

Today's author is another of those writers whose books I used to read when I was trying to learn how to write for Presents. Margaret Mayo's first book Destiny Paradise was published in 1976 and since then she has published . . .Oh - no I can't tell you that. You'll have to find out the answer for yourself so that you can answer her question as part of the Tote Bag Contest.

Welcome to my blog Margaret.

Where would we be without our monthly dose of Presents? It actually gives me as much pleasure to write these stories as it does to read them. We know what to expect when we pick up a Presents – strong alpha heroes to die for, spirited heroines and an intriguing, page-turning plot

Although each author has a different style each book has the same core ingredients that we’ve come to expect, and it is this that makes them such a joy to read. They pack a punch like no other line and we all have our favourite authors - me included.

I feel lucky and privileged to write these stories, to create new characters each time, to dream up believable plots. And I intend doing it for as long as I am able.

The book Margaret has donated to the Tote Bag is Bought For Marriage which appears in the Presents Extra schedule this month.

Bought bride, pregnant wife!
Dione Keristari will do anything to help her sick father when her family's business is on the rocks. But begging gorgeous Greek billionaire Theo Tsardikos for cash is more than she bargained for! Now he's demanding a marriage contract in return for the money!
She has no choice but to agree to wed the arrogant Greek. However, the sparks of attraction between them are hard for inexperienced Dione to handle, and she vows not to share Theo's bed.

But Theo's a master in the ways of loving, and soon he has his temporary bride at his bidding...and pregnant...
And the question you need to answer for a chance of the wonderful Tote Bag prize is this:
What 'landmark' book is Margaret celebrating with her next UK release

As always you can find the answer on Margaret's web site which you can find here

And don't forget - collect up all the answers to all the questions and send them to me with Tote Bag Presents Special in the subject line of your email.
