Today I’m having tea and wine with the gorgeous Lee Christine. We’ll probably start with the wine and see whether we get to the cup of tea 🙂
Before we talk about her new release from Escape Pulblishing, A dangerous arrangement, let’s get to know her a little better!
- Tea or wine?

Dogs, although I don’t have one at the moment.
- Heels or flats?
Heels, but it depends on the occasion.
- Boxers or briefs?

B. Five likes and five dislikes
I dislike Bluebottles, bad wine, shoes that rub and give you blisters,reality TV and techno music
I like watching cricket and tennis. I love perfume, good books, good shoes and good company.
C. Three things on your bucket list
Visit the Galapagos, Iceland and South America
I read an article about the growing problem of intellectual property theft. I began developing an idea where a company owned by my hero suffers a cybercrime so devastating it could ruin his company. I was travelling throughout Europe at the time and part of the holiday was a sixteen day cruise around Italy which began in Venice and ended in Rome. A visit to the Conservatorium of Music in Venice inspired me to make my heroine a violinist. I studied the alto saxophone for fourteen years at the Newcastle Conservatorium so I felt able to write from the heroine’s perspective. I began with a crime, threw two very different characters together and created a new romantic suspense!
When violinist Marina Wentworth arrives in Venice en route to a cruise ship for a short working holiday, the last thing she expects is to be confronted by a handsome stranger demanding answers. After going to great lengths to keep her real reasons for the trip a secret, Marina refuses to let her immediate attraction to Dean Logan derail her plans.
Desperate to recover his latest super yacht designs, Dean doesn’t want to believe the lovely violinist is involved in the devastating cyber-attack that threatens to destroy his yacht building empire. However his growing feelings for Marina fail to extinguish the nagging suspicion that she is hiding something.
Set against the backdrop of Italy’s Amalfi Coast, Dean and Marina must navigate the dangerous waters of secrecy, attraction, and the fusion of two very different worlds. Will their lives remain discordant, or will they take the chance at true harmony?
