Their Engagement is Announced

Griffin Sinclair had announced that he and Dora Baxter were going to get married. This was a complete shock to Dora–he hadn't even asked her!Griffin had created the fictitious engagement to avoid his mother's matchmaking–and it seemed Dora had no choice but to go along with it. Now she had to spend all her time with the gorgeous Adonis…. But it wasn't going to be that easy–because secretly, Dora had been in love with Griffin for years, and there was nothing she wanted more than his genuine proposal!

Carole Mortimer (b. England) is a popular British writer of over 140 romance novels. She is one of Mills & Boon's most popular and prolific authors. Since her first novel, published in 1978, this writer has shown no signs of slowing her pace.

Biography

Personal life

Carole Mortimer was born in a village in England. 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.Citation| title = Mills & Boon's Biography| url = http://www.millsandboon.co.uk/cgi-bin/millsandboon.storefront/46b787ee00311f36273f58d0dc9e06b4/Export/products/AUTH-2D000379?Display=Biography| accessdate = 2007-08-06]

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.

She enjoys reading Anne Mather's books and one of her all-time favourite books is the "Outlander Series" by Diana Gabaldon.Citation| title = Mills & Boon's Interview| url = http://www.millsandboon.co.uk/cgi-bin/millsandboon.storefront/46b78eea002d4c20274058d0dc9e06b0/Export/products/AUTH-2D000379?Display=Interview| accessdate = 2007-08-06]

Carole lives with her husband, and their six children (with 22 years of difference between the first-born and the unexpected youngest child.), and menagerie of pets, including a dog acquired several years ago in Canada, which is actually half-coyote.

Writing career

Her first manuscript was far too short and the plotline not up to standard, and it was rejected. But her second manuscript "The passionate Winter", was accepted and since its publication in 1978, this writer has shown no signs of slowing her pace.

Carole creates the characters for the heroine and hero, and then she letting them tell their own story. They become real to her and she hate to let them go.

Her strong, traditional romances, with their distinct style, brilliantly developed characters and romantic plot twists, have earned her an enthusiastic audience worldwide.
