Calisa Rhose invites Eve Rabi to Friday Fanfare #mfrwauthor #scandalous #suspense
THE OTHER WOMAN – a betrayed wife takes on the other woman with scandalous results. By Eve Rabi
My writing career began with a nightmare. Okay, I know this sounds cliched, and you’ve heard this before, but it’s true. I had a nightmare, and I was so terrified, I couldn’t fall asleep again. I didn’t want to fall asleep again. I started writing Beast of Mexico – Gringa, then went on to write 27 other books, including The Other Woman. Bad dreams, I realize, can be handy to creative people. These days, I’m no longer afraid of bad dreams. I say bring it on.
Tell us three things about you-the writer-readers wouldn’t typically know.
- I like to dance like no one is watching. I dance often, almost every week.
- I like to eat like no one is watching – I’m a foodie, what can I say! My idea of good food is a chocolate burger for breakfast.
- I hate housework. Despise it. I am a widow, but I reckon I could do with a wife in the future, not a husband. Then, I’ll have so much more time to write!
Chocolate Burger *snort* Love it!
Where did you get the premise for this book?
With The Other Woman, I was inspired by life. We all know of a woman who has stolen someone else’s husband, destroyed a family, shattered dreams and went on to live happily ever after. It’s hurtful, and often the poor wife is left behind with little, while the new wife replaces her with ease and lives happily ever after. The wronged wife is supposed to quietly move on, despite being gutted and robbed by another woman. It’s downright unfair, isn’t it? Well, I wondered what would happen if the wronged wife fought back, took revenge? As I started writing, the story flowed and it became a hit with my readers. If you enjoy a good revenge romance, then this is the book for you. It’s a fast-paced, gripping, sexy, romantic suspense read.
What stands out about this story that made writing it different for you?
It was fun to unleash a wronged wife with nothing to lose, on a woman who has everything to lose. Unleash her on a sultry seductress who can turn any man’s head and who is not used to losing. In The Other Woman, the wronged wife does not pull back. She goes there, and does things we wouldn’t dream of doing. She is reckless and the destruction she wreaks on the other woman is mammoth and stressful. Stress can seriously affect a marriage, but can it also affect a lover’s illicit romance? See for yourself when you read The Other Woman.
What about this book would make us want to read it more than others of similar taste?
Well, if you’re bored of the everyday same ol’, same ol’ boring romance, or if you aren’t into just erotica, if you enjoy reading on the edge of your seat, you should read The Other Woman. If you enjoy laughing and crying while falling in love, then you should read The Other Woman.
Here’s what an Amazon reader had to say, “I could not put this book down, I finished it at 2:30 in the morning and I had to get up for work @ 6:30. However, it was worth every yawn I had during the day @ work. Read it and you will see why.”
What do you want readers to take away from this book?
Revenge is a cool fantasy. However, sometimes, on the road to revenge, you can pass a field of daisies. Stop, take a moment and run through the field. It may change your life. Change your path for the better.
Tell us about the finished book. Is there anything special we might not know after reading it?
The story was so popular with my readers, I went on to write a few sequels to it. I promise, you will enjoy them. In fact, The Other Woman, as well as the sequels have an overall five-star rating on Amazon U.K. and Amazon AUS. I’ve had several book clubs read it and tell me how enjoyable it was. It’s a topic for debate as well – was the wronged wife justified in what she did?
Shouldn’t she just have walked away with her head held high? A debate best carried out after a few glasses of wine.
Question: A seductress steals your husband, rips apart your family and shatters your dreams.
a) Wish them luck, and walk away with your head held high (because that’s what society expects you to do)?
b) Quietly seethe, but accept that there is just nothing you can do about it (because it easier for everyone if you do nothing)?
c) Dig up dirt on the bitch (because someone like this would undoubtedly have dirt), use it to sabotage their relationship, then sit back with a glass of Pinot Grigio and watch them burn?
Answer: C. Oh, totally C.
Meet Scarlett Smyth. She’s drop-dead gorgeous, has a rocking body and has an above average IQ. She brags that she can ensnare any husband or taken male, and …she often does. She also is ambitious and has a penchant for anything expensive.
When the shrewd and ambitious temptress lays eyes on Bradley Murdoch, she believes she has found her dream man and a ticket to the high life she’s entitled to. There are just two problems:
1) Bradley is married to Rival. Happily at that.
2) They have children. Adorable little girls.
Do those facts deter Scarlett in any way? No, not at all. She is determined to steal Bradley, smoothly replace Rival in his life and show him how to really live life.
In a calculating move, the seductress (she is so good at seduction, she is even penning a book on it) befriends the quiet and unassuming Rival and worms her way into Bradley’s life.
There’s more: To expedite things, Scarlett the mistress, engineers a way to wipe Rival out of the picture – sends the clueless wife on a “vacation”.
But Scarlett may have underestimated her opponent. When Rival realizes the extent of the betrayal, she decides, even though she lacks Scarlett’s genius IQ, not to turn the other cheek. In fact, she is determined to win back her husband, believing that he is a good man who is simply mistaking lust for love. She believes that someone like Scarlett has to have skeletons in her cupboards and she begins to snoop around, anything she can use against the other woman, anything that can help her exact revenge.
What Rival doesn’t realize is: no one crosses Scarlett and gets away with it.
Now, the betrayed wife and the other woman collide.
The result is another gripping suspense thriller from bestselling author Eve Rabi. This suspense mystery & psychological thriller is #FreeOnKindleUnlimited.
Sounds scandalous and delicious!
