Author Krissie Fortune joins me today to talk about the background for her brand new book, Desire, Deceit, and the Doctor.
Gypsies, Tramps, and Thieves
Some of Hollywood’s silent stars achieved an immortality that modern actors can only dream of.
Hollywood invited the wonderful Pola Negri to Hollywood. She left her native Poland and became one of the richest movie stars in the USA. She’s shown below with an almost unrecognizable Chaplin. Her most famous film was The Gypsy.
Everyone knows Charlie Chaplin and his little tramp.
Valentino’s eyes still smolder with passion. The archetypal, Latin lover, he stole ladies’ hearts. Okay, that’s a stretch to make him a thief, but in his most famous film, The Sheik he steals Lady Diana and carries her off to his camp.
Then there’s Amy Montgomery. Never heard of her? Not surprising since I made her up. She’s pivotal to my Heroes of Westhorpe Ridge trilogy since her star shone brighter than any other movie star.
Amy was as famous for her lovers as her acting roles. Her sex appeal and avarice, plus her eye for a good deal, made her millions. Sadly, her daughter wanted to move in polite circles. Her mother’s lifestyle made that impossible.
Although Amy’s daughter married, she raised her own daughter so prim and proper she made sucking lemons sound like a treat. Edith Montgomery holds the purse strings for her family, but had no time for girls. She left the bulk of her estate, property and over £15 million in stocks and shares to her great nephew, Army doctor, Adam Montgomery – as long as he marries within a year of her death.
When Adam is wounded he returns to Westhorpe to find a wife. Then his first love moves back into town with her ten-year-old son and turns his world on its head.
Desire, Deceit, and the Doctor
After Adam Montgomery walked away and left her pregnant, dare Mandy trust him with her heart again?
Twelve years ago, Mandy Devlin moved away from her friends and family–under threat. If she returned in the next ten years or told anyone who fathered her baby, her boyfriend’s great-aunt would bankrupt her family. She’s a single mom who dreams of her lost love and a good spanking. When she’s finally free to return to Westhorpe Ridge, the last person she expects to see is Adam—the man she loved and lost so long ago.
Dr. Adam Montgomery doesn’t know he has a son. Thanks to his great-aunt’s will, he has nine months to find a bride or he loses Montgomery Hall and the fifteen million dollars she left him. Although he seduces Mandy on his first night home, he still believes she betrayed him twelve years ago. No way would he marry a woman like her.
As Valentine’s Day looms, someone tries to kill Mandy. Is Adam trying to get rid of her? Or can Mandy trust him to protect them?
