Who is Anya Richards?
I often wonder the same thing myself! If you’d like labels I’d say I’m a Jamaican transplanted to Canada, a wife, mother, author, editor, crafter, law clerk, animal lover and nutcase—usually with one of the former list taking precedent, but occasionally with a few battling for supremacy. I’m also a history buff, intensely curious, and I love to cook (and eat). Beyond that, I’m just a person with the luck to have a knack for writing.
Who is your favourite author?
Is this a trick question? LOL! I really can’t answer this without a lot more space than a blog post would allow. I read widely, so I have favorites in various genres!
Do you listen to music while you write?
Usually yes. Occasionally I’ll have something, like football or a true crime show, playing on the TV instead.
What type of music?
It very much depends on what I’m writing. I like reggae, country, classical/Baroque and pop mostly, but the music needs to fit the mood I’m in or the atmosphere of the book.
What do you do to relax?
I love to cook, so I find that relaxing, but usually I craft. I’m the kind of person who likes to have something to do with my hands, so when I’m not typing I crochet, or sculpt or do whatever other craft has caught my fancy at that particular time!
Tell us about your book...
Jane Rollins is anything but plain, but to keep her position as housekeeper to a wealthy family, she is content to hide her beauty behind a dull façade. This deception has become second-nature to her—until dance master Sergio Fontini waltzes into her life.
While the other inhabitants of the house see him as a foreigner and beneath their notice, Jane sees strength, barely leashed power, and an aura of iron control—an irresistible, arousing combination.
Sergio sees through Jane’s disguise to the woman beneath, and the desires in her veiled gaze call to him like the utterly irresistible strains of a beautiful symphony. The circumstances couldn’t be worse, for seducing her will endanger both their livelihoods.
Yet there are lessons he cannot resist teaching her, steps of a dance that crescendos to her final surrender…
