Q&A with Lynne Graham

author of

THE SHEIKH’S SECRET BABIES

 

  1. Tell us a bit more about the relationship between Prince Jaul and Chrissie Whitaker.

It’s such a shock for Chrissie when her husband – a Prince no less – returns to claim her and his heirs after the awful way her father – and in her mind initially – he treated her. And they both have to learn that the people who were married two years ago are not necessarily the people they are today. But the one thing that binds them together, stronger even than their children, is that the love they once had for each other is still there.

 

  1. What are the three ingredients for the perfect romance novel?

Passion, commitment, and love.

 

  1. What was the moment when you realized you wanted to be a writer?

I realized that I wanted to be a writer at the age of 5. I was hidden away, writing stories about cats and dogs. The stories had become about people by the time I was a teenager. But I was a great reader of fairytales when I was a child. For me they were the first—and some of the best—romances.

 

  1. Who would you cast as Prince Jaul and Chrissie if the book were to be made into a movie? Why?

For Chrissie it would have to be Emilia Clarke who plays Daenerys Targaryen in Game of Thrones. Her white blonde hair makes her perfect for Chrissie. And for Jaul, it would have to be Joe Manganiello. Surely there is no explanation needed for that!

 

  1. You have sold more than 26 million books worldwide. What do you think is the secret to your success?

Passionate heroes and heroines that you can recognize, that you can identify with. But above all that, I just try to tell a good story with a happy ending.
