    Ai đã đọc 2 cuốn Wife by contract, Mistress by Demand và Untamed có trong thư viện dịch chắc không còn lạ với tác giả này nữa nhỉ. Mình muốn đưa Bộ sưu tập của mình của tác giả này lên để mọi người cùng thưởng thức nhé.


    Carole Mortimer was born in a village in England that she claims was so small that "if you blinked as you drove through it you could miss seeing it completely!" She adds that her parents still live in the house where she first came into the world, and her two brothers live very close by.

    Carole's early ambition to become a nurse came to an abrupt end after only one year of training due to a weakness in her back, suffered in the aftermath of a fall. Instead, she went on to work in the computer department of a well-known stationery company. During her time there, Carole made her first attempt at writing a novel for Mills and Boon. "The manuscript was far too short and the plotline not up to standard, so I naturally received a rejection slip," she says. "Not taking rejection well, I went off in a sulk for two years before deciding to 'have another go.'" Her second manuscript was accepted, beginning a long and fruitful career. Her strong, traditional romances, with their distinct style, brilliantly developed characters and romantic plot twists, have earned her an enthusiastic audience worldwide. Since the publication of her first novel in 1978, this British writer has shown no signs of slowing her pace. In fact, when over 20 years later she celebrated the publication of her 100th book She says: "I have enjoyed every moment of my career! I really do enjoy my writing, and have every intention of continuing to do so for another 20 years!"

    Carole lives "in a most beautiful part of Britain" with her husband, six children, including her unexpected last child who was 22 years younger than her first-born, and a menagerie of pets, including a dog acquired several years ago in Canada, which is actually half-coyote!​

    Untamed (1984) - Carole Mortimer

    Having her scathing letter condemning the film star Rod Bartlett's morals-or lack of! - published had stirred up far more controversy than Keily Granthad ever anticipated. One thing she certainly hadn't bargained for, though,was the disturbing passion the mysterious Rick Richards aroused in her whenhe suddenly turned up to delve into her reasons for writing a personalattack on a complete stranger in the first place. After all, Rod would neverbe anything to her - would he?
