ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Writing Illicit Passion was an incredible experience for Sarah Stuart. The majority of the characters had already made an appearance in Dangerous Liaisons, Book 1 of the Royal Command series, but a discussion on Goodreads had shown which of “the cast” were the most popular, and which minor characters readers wanted to know more about. James, who had appeared as a troubled teenager, intrigued so many he enters Illicit Passion as the new Laird of Kinloch.
The same thing happened in a Goodreads discussion of Illicit Passion. Michael polled the most votes as the favourite character, but there was enormous interest in the ongoing relationship between “the twins”, Harriet and Kit, and in young Greta. Their stories continue in Dynasty of Deceit, and Sweet Temptation.
Margaret Tudor’s Book of Hours continues to hold interest, which is a treat for me as I love history almost as much as showbiz and the research into life in the 16th century is fascinating. My other passion, the protection of wildlife, and concern for unwanted pets, means the royalties from every sale of my books goes to animal charities.
