What made you tell this story and why write this book?

One of my favourite things for a bit of down time is watching documentary programmes and I often record them to watch whilst having a coffee. It was one such programme which sparked the initial idea for A Child Claimed by Gold. The presenter, Joanna Lumley was on a trans-Siberian adventure, which ended in Moscow and the scenes where she met with a Russian Oligarch’s son settled in my imagination and transformed into the story of Nikolai and Emma.

How did you come up with the title?

I’m afraid I can’t take the credit for that. The wonderful team of editors at Mills and Boon in London have that honour.

What is your favourite scene?

I particularly enjoyed writing the scene at Bow Bridge in Central Park, New York, when Nikolai has to confess how he feels or lose Emma forever. The physical distance between them at that point is small, but emotionally he has a world to cross before he can convince Emma he loves her.

Tell us a little about the book...

Emma is desperate to land a full-time job as a photographer so is determined to go all out when she is sent on an assignment in Russia. Nikolai, whose family history she is to uncover, has other ideas. As far as he’s concerned, his past has to stay in the past, but it is the undeniable attraction between them which causes a much more long-term problem. A baby. When Emma arrives at his home in New York to tell him he is to be a father, he knows instantly there is only one solution to the problem – marriage, even though he has never wanted to be a husband or father, but convincing Emma isn’t that easy.
