Monique DeVere grew up on a plantation on the
beautiful island of Barbados, where her childhood was all about exploring and
letting her imagination run free. She moved to the UK as a teen and soon fell
in love at first sight with her amazing, strong-silent-type husband. They have
four beautiful children and four incredible grandchildren.
Monique writes sweet ‘n’ spicy romance, and when she
isn’t working on the next novel or movie script, she can be found spending time
with hubby and family, armchair travelling, creating
recipes, reading about health and nutrition, or
working on her spiritual growth. She enjoys going for walks, gardening, or simply
crazy-dancing around the house. Monique loves to hear from her readers. You can

Beverley: What’s your name?
Beverley, I’m so happy to visit your blog today. For those of you who don’t
know me, I’m Sabrina Newton-Giordano, Matt’s Pregnant Runaway Wife, the heroine
from Monique DeVere’s new release.
Beverley: Where did you grow up?
Sabrina: I grew up in Somerset, England. I have a huge close-knit
family who mean the world to me.
Beverley: During what time period does your
story take place?
Sabrina: My story is contemporary romance. Monique doesn’t wish to
date my story, so COVID-19 doesn’t exist in my romance.
Beverley: What’s your story/back story? Why
would someone come up with a story about you?
Sabrina: I’m an award-winning pastry chef, and I worked in the
London branch of Giordano’s Sicily, one of my husband’s chains of restaurants.
I first met Matt when he visited the restaurant for a surprise inspection. When
I saw him, his presence blew me away, but I think I hid my reaction well. Our
romance was whirlwind, and I’m starting to wonder if we didn’t rush into
things. How is it possible to be so intimate with someone, and, yet so distant
at the same time? I know he doesn’t like to talk about his past, but I’m only
now realising how little I know about the man I married.
Beverley: What’s your goal in this story?
Sabrina: I need to meet Matt’s family and discover why he’s so angry
with them. What could they have done that was so terrible to keep him away for
so many years? I have to fine out.
Beverley: What conflicts are you facing?
Sabrina: Matt and I are going to have a baby. I want our little one
to know the kind of love I had growing up with two sets of adoring
grandparents. I want our children to know their Sicilian culture and to be able
to visit their grandparents in Sicily. But something happened in Matt’s past,
and he’s estranged from his parents. I’m so sad that he refuses to let me in
and wouldn’t talk about his past.
Beverley: Do you have a plan for resolving
Sabrina: I’ve decided to hide my true identity and find a way to
meet the in-laws without causing too many problems. My curious nature and my
own bad experience forces me to take action.
Beverley: Is there anything else you’d like us
to know about you?
Sabrina: Now that I’m pregnant, I’ve become super conscious of
health—eating right, drinking more water. I’m thinking of going vegan. As a
result, I’ve decided to look into the feasibility of vegan desserts. Matt
doesn’t know this, yet. J
Pregnant Runaway Wife:
This might be the biggest risk of her life.
When her whirlwind romance with gorgeous Sicilian-born
restaurateur Matteo Giordano culminates in marriage, award-winning pastry chef
Sabrina Newton-Giordano thinks she has it all...until Matt refuses to introduce
her to his family. Sabrina desires their baby to have the same love she knew
from her grandparents, but Matt’s outright rejection of his family could result
in their baby never knowing his or her paternal grandparents, something Sabrina
will not accept. Until that is, she hits on the perfect solution—run away to
Sicily to meet the in-laws!
Matt wants only one thing—to keep his wife and unborn
child safe. For a man intent on never allowing anything to stand in his way, it
should be an easy task. But Matt hasn’t bargained on how stubborn his
irresistible, runaway wife can be. Despite his stern objections, she’s
determined to form a relationship with his family. He knows, from past
experience, they’d never accept her or the baby. Now Matt is torn between the
urgent need to protect his wife and fear of causing her undue stress in her
Excerpt from Matt's Pregnant Runaway Wife
kept him on his toes, he’d give her that. From the moment he met her he’d known
she was unique to any other woman. The first hint was when he’d arrived
unexpectedly to check on his London restaurant. Everyone, except Sabrina, had
nervously tripped over themselves in his presence. She’d simply continued to
work as though his arrival was as insignificant as a dust mote drifting past
her head. The second hint had knocked him the moment she glanced up and locked
eyes with his. Something he’d never experienced before had happened. His body
had responded to the instant connection in a way that had been shocking and
potent. He’d decided right then to make her his. Even then, she hadn’t made it
easy for him. She’d resisted their attraction, had flat-out refused to have
drinks, dinner, or—her words—anything else with him. To say that
she’d become a challenge he’d fixated on was to understate the level of his
attraction for Sabrina.
one day, after weeks of him putting his best moves on her and about to admit
defeat, a delivery arrived at his office. It was a beautifully presented slice
of his favourite dessert along with a note that read: if you want more, come
and get it! He was pretty sure the soles of his handmade Italian shoes left
scorch marks on his office rug in his haste to get to Sabrina. The rest had
been white-hot sizzling sexy, whirlwind, and incredible. And now here he was,
fighting to keep his marriage from falling apart only after eleven-and-a-half
months of wedded bliss.
washed his hands at the kitchen sink, then rummaged in the under counter
chuckled. “Surprise, surprise, nothing but dessert and fruit.”
one thing he could be sure of was that he’d always find some sort of dessert in
their fridge at home, thanks to Sabrina’s never-ending effort to create new and
exciting after-dinner treats. And, oh look, she had his favourite dessert
sitting in a small yellow and white cake caddy, as though she’d somehow been
expecting him. When he grabbed the container his gaze landed on the four red
apples in a bowl on the shelf below, so he snagged one of those, too.
