Kort biografi
Sheila Ann Mary Coates was born on 1937 in Essex, England, just before the Second World War in the East End of London. As a child, she was moved from relative to relative to escape the bombings of World War II. Sheila attended the Ursuline Convent for Girls. On leaving school at 16, the convent-educated author worked for the Bank of England as a clerk. Sheila continued her education by taking advantage of the B of E's enormous library during her lunch breaks and after work. She later worked as a secretary for the BBC. While there, she met and married Richard Holland, a political reporter. A voracious reader of romance novels, she began writing at her husband's suggestion. She wrote her first book in three days with three children underfoot! In between raising her five children (including a set of twins), Charlotte wrote several more novels. She used both her married and maiden names, Sheila Holland and Sheila Coates, before her first novel as Charlotte Lamb, Follow a Stranger, was published by Mills & Boon in 1973. She also used the pennames: Sheila Lancaster, Victoria Wolf and Laura Hardy. Sheila was a true revolutionary in the field of romance writing. One of the first writers to explore the boundaries of sexual desire, her novels often reflected the forefront of the "sexual revolution" of the 1970s. Her books touched on then-taboo subjects such as child abuse and rape, and she created sexually confident - even dominant - heroines. She was also one of the first to create a modern romantic heroine: independent, imperfect, and perfectly capable of initiating a sexual or romantic relationship. A prolific author, Sheila penned more than 160 novels, most of them for Mills & Boon. Known for her swiftness as well as for her skill in writing, Sheila typically wrote a minimum of two thousand words per day, working from 9:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. While she once finished a full-length novel in four days, she herself pegged her average speed at two weeks to complete a full novel. Since 1977, Sheila had been living on the Isle of Man as a tax exile with her husband and four of their five children: Michael Holland, Sarah Holland, Jane Holland, Charlotte Holland and David Holland. Sheila passed away on October 8, 2000 in her baronial-style home 'Crogga' on the Island. She is greatly missed by her many fans, and by the romance writing community.

Annie Lang is a famous TV actress and star of the police drama, "The Force". She has everything except love, which she has had to sacrifice for her career. A card from a secret admirer seems to answer her prayers, but the truth is far more sinister.[return]Reasonable, british based thriller, of Annie becoming a famous TV actress (On a show very similar to The Bill), but who is haunted by her past. Soon she realises she is the target of a sinister attack from person/persons unknown.[return][return]The identity of the secret admirer is not really that secret, and the story is a little formulaic, but is a decent enough way to pass an evening with a good bottle of wine… (mer)

I apparently read this before but I have zero recollection of it. It’s not really a misunderstanding so much as a total unwillingness to believe each other. Both of them were pretty insufferable.

Giving two stars for Clea. Some of her justification for forgiving the "hero" totally dismisses the fact that Ben is a rapist, but she does not shy away from making him feel like shit. The story is engaging in that this-is-an-eighties-Harlequin way, but Jesus, gross.

Let's not dance around it, ok? Even if you get physically aroused (if you get wet or get a boner, it's a physical reaction you HAVE NO CONTROL OVER) or even if you come, even if you love the person who is assaulting you, even if you've had sex with that person before, even if you change your mind in the middle, if you say NO or STOP or GET OFF ME and that person does not stop, IT'S RAPE, OK.

It's ok to say "yeah, maybe you turn me on but I still don't want to have sex with you" or "I love you but you aren't ready for or don't want a relationship that's more than just physical, so I don't want to have sex with you". It's also ok to say "I only want a physical relationship". But people who want the former and not the latter or people who want the latter and not the former ARE NOT COMPATIBLE. It sucks, but you have to accept it AND MOVE ON.

Cuando recibió la carta anónima, la primera reacción de Sancha fue quemarla. No podía ser verdad lo que decía:
¿Sabes dónde va a estar tu marido esta noche? ¿Y sabes con quién?
Sancha adoraba a Mark, nunca había dejado de quererlo, a pesar de que los tres hijos que tenían les impedían una relación tan íntima como en el pasado.
Jamás se le hubiera ocurrido pensar que su atractivo esposo pudiera acabar en los brazos de otra mujer...
