I don't get much reading right now because I'm so focused on writing. Too many stories in my mind keep me up at night. lol
I'm a mother of three and a grandmother of four, happily married to the greatest guy.
I've written since I was a child, creating plays to act out in the garage for the local kids.
In 2002 I had a severe breakdown and ended up writing because I couldn't do anything else for years.
I've published 14 books, 10 of which are now out of contract. I hope to have them up again soon. Creative writing is a big part of my life now because I LOVE writing!
I look forward to meeting many new friends at CTR.

My name is Nancy Adams. I am a full-blooded Canadian, right down to the maple syrup running through my veins. I enjoy watching hockey and eating Poutine, usually at the same time. I have no problem driving for 6 hours for a weekend trip and I will throw in the occasional French swear word into a conversation. I have a three small addictions, bed lines, lavender, and books. All of which, is replenished on a regular basis. Reading into the wee hours of the morning, is one of many bad habits, next to spontaneously rearranging furniture and randomly painting rooms in my house.
Writing is a new passion for me, which began with ‘Hobby’ writing courses dating back to 2008. I don’t show favoritism against any genre, and when writing I just go with the flow and write what I want to write. Although, you will find that my books are a combination of many different genres and all have a hefty dose of erotic romance and usually a laugh thrown in for good measure.
I have two books published with erotic romance publisher Total-E-Bound, No Matter When is a Historical/Futuristic/Time Travel romance, and The Soul Within is a Contemporary/Paranormal romance. My next book The Bannockburn Spell is due for released with TEB in Nov/Dec this year.
I am currently working on a Paranormal/Shaper-Shifters Romance set on the coast of Vancouver Island, British Colombia.
Welcome to my corner of the coffee shop. I like my coffee with a dash of cream and shot of Irish Whiskey…Tullemore Dew is my favorite…when I can’t have Irish Coffee, I prefer Earl Grey tea.
I write Irish Westerns, Medievals…and more. I published my first book, THE MARSHAL’S DESTINY (bk 1 in my Irish Western Series) with Avalon Books in 2001 and my tenth book, TYLER, released from Sourcebooks on March 1st. Both are Irish Westerns (I like to take my Irishmen out west and get them into trouble). I have a Medieval Trilogy with DCL Publications, the third book in the trilogy will be going into print this year. For my full book list, check out my website
About me…as a romance author, I've finally found a way to keep the voices from driving me insane...I put them in my stories. Now when the people in my head argue and wake me up, I'm not worried because I know they are characters from my current works-in-progress...and if not, they soon will be! I like to use family names in all of my stories. The castle on my home page is the ancestral home of my Purcell relatives in Tipperary, Ireland. All of my heroes have some of my husband’s best qualities: his honesty, his shoulders, integrity, his compassion for those in need, and his killer broad shoulders. I’m a sucker for a man with broad shoulders.
Unstoppable heros, Uncompromising love, Unforgettable passion.
Science Fiction Romance author Kayelle Allen spent years developing the universe for her books. Her debut novel was so spicy it made seasoned Romance readers blush. Appealing to every gender and sexual orientation, her command of the romantic language evokes passion in all its forms. Her offbeat humor and surprising twists generated the motto, "Think you know what'll happen next? No way! It's by Kayelle...
Having written as Amy Gallow for over ten years, a reasonable question is why I would choose to change, especially as I will continue to write romance under her name (with at least one book contracted and another in preparation)?
The answer is that I want to go places where Amy’s friends might feel uncomfortable, even though a strong romantic thread runs through all my stories. Places like the mind of a veteran of WWI, the French Foreign Legion, WWII and Korea, or that of the longest serving Chinese detective in the Victoria Police on the eve of the execution of a Chinese miner convicted largely on his investigation and information gained while he and the miner shared a pipe of opium in July 1875, and that of a British Naval officer convicted of sodomy in 1815, but hung because he knew too many things embarrassing to those in power at the time. They are works in progress and one is already contracted to Eternal Press, another is in the submission process and I am deep in research for the third. There are others in the pipeline, waiting their turn. All a little different from anything Amy might write, even though she has my gratitude for giving me the services of editors, publishers and reviewers as I learnt my craft.
Do you need to turn up the heat? Not anymore when you read these paranormal romances! Tales of psychics who use their unique skills to save the day, whether deep in the jungle, or running through the city. It’s a race against the clock where you don’t know until the last minute if they'll be able to save the day. Franny Armstrong became a professional writer after suffering a severe breakdown. Part of her healing process was to write. Now she writes full time and loves every minute of it, sinking herself into the character’s lives. What’s the best part of writing in her viewpoint? She can take them anywhere in the world and pit them against all odds. A sucker for a happily ever after, Franny gives the heroes and heroines a run for their money. Check out Breathless Publishing or go to her site, and you’ll find what you’re looking for. Enjoy...
I started writing when I was about twelve. I'd just read one of Elaine Mitchell's brumby books (not the silver brumby series, one of the others) and I hated the ending. So I did what seemed the most natural thing to do--I rewrote it <g>.
I haven't stopped writing since--though I have to admit, it's only in the last fifteen years that I've seriously thought about getting published.
To date, I've completed a total of seventeen novels, (not counting the rewrite of Elaine Mitchell's!) although the first three will probably never see the light of day. I thought they were brilliant at the time, but looking at them now, I can only shudder. I still think the ideas are great, but basically, all three books would need to be entirely rewritten. Maybe I'll get back to them one day, when I have the time and nothing else to write. I'm a member of RWAustralia, the Princess Lulu Regrets crit group (don't ask about the name, because it's just unexplainable <g>), the Sock Monkeys, and the Monkeylint support group.

I've been writing many, many years, but didn't get published until 2003. I love books that ground you in a familiar world, but still offer elements of the paranormal (vampires, wizards, shape-shifters cursed dukes, etc.). My heroes all tend to be Alpha males who strongly believe they need to protect the women who enter their lives. Though they may admire the heroine's courage and even understand her need to be strong and independent, they always think they know what is best for her. More often than not, they are wrong, and it is up to the heroine to help them recognize their mistake and slowly change their attitudes. In the end, the hero will usually be willing to compromise, to an extent, and may even admit he is overly protective, but he can never really change his attitude since his need to protect is so deeply engrained in him. The heroine comes to understand her hero's faults, and even grows to love him more for having them. She learns the best way to get around her domineering partner is simply to love him and offer her love back freely in return.

I’m a YA lit addict and I cannot lie. I think that some of the best fiction today is young adult. Though I’ve traditionally written horror novels, my latest book is about gender identity. The title is Cevin’s Deadly Sin. It’s the story of a hetero, teen cross-dresser: his struggles with first love, self-identity and bullying during his senior year in a small, Florida town. Cevin thinks that moving to Tilapia, Florida town is the worst thing that ever happened to him…until he falls for Tessa. She may be the one person who can accept his cross-dressing, but her brother Hunt’s goal is to make Cevin’s life a living hell. When Hunt “outs” him at school, Cevin has to figure out how to come to terms with his own identity in order to keep Tessa and quite possibly save his own life. Stop by and have a latté with me, and we can chat about YA.

enchanting forests, mystic mountains and golden plains of promise.

sitting in picture perfect view from her windows, Maya can be found relaxing in the recesses of her comfy couch, sinking her teeth into crafting and weaving seducing and erotic tales of vampires that may or may not roam her beloved town.
One read and you'll be hooked.

I live in Toledo, Ohio, but have recently begun spending the nasty winters in Florida with my folks. I have a sister with eleven children. I speak French and Spanish and have traveled widely.

I'm getting a new shed with blue vinyl siding (and a window!) in my backyard soon. What else can I say? Oh, I have another sister who is a cat-lady, and a brother who is an organic farmer. I'm sure there are plenty of other things we can talk about, but I'd better get back to work on my latest project. Ciao for now!
Although I long ago left the farm for the glamour of the big town, I still draw a lot from my experiences growing up on a small farm in West Central Pennsylvania to write my stories. I love stories with a real characters living real lives and try to write those same kind of stories. I've been married for 20 years and have a teenage son and daughter who are as different as summer and winter. And we are all at the mercy of Penny, one very spoiled rescue cat who thinks she needs to eat breakfast at 1 AM and is scared of the dark. I would love to live in the places I write about and tell everyone I'm a cowgirl at heart stuck in Pennsylvania suburbia. Because I love vampires almost as much as I do cowboys, I also have paranormal romantic suspense published under the pen name Cera duBois. Vist my Website

Born and raised in Manhattan, I have lived in the Boston area since just after the blizzard of 1978, thus missing the opportunity to abandon my car in a snowbank and walk home. I am the daughter of a painter and the mother of three grown sons. An avid science fiction fan, I selected Robert A. Heinlein's "Farmer in the Sky" for my tenth birthday, now long past. I live outside of Boston with my partner and a large number of dogs.
In spite of earning my living as a computer software engineer, I turned to one of my sons to put up the first version of my website, a clear illustration of the computer generation gap. An accomplished flute and piccolo player, I can also write backwards and wiggle my ears. Thanks to my father's relentless hounding, I can still recite the rules for pronoun agreement in both English and French. My articles, poems, and stories have appeared in anthologies and journals such as Melusine, Front Range Review, and All Rights Reserved. My 2010 NaNo novel, Relocated was published by MuseItUp Publishing in July, 2012. and the second Aleyne novel, Broken Bonds in July, 2013. A third novel, Geek Games, came out in November, 2013. I published the book of poems that goes with the Relocated through CreateSpace. My book, The Angry Little Boy will be published by 4RV publishing sometime this year.. I am one of six authors of the poetry anthology, "Lifelines."
I play the flute and the piccolo, but am quite rusty. I recently completed Pat Pattison's songwriting course. One of reasons I took it was because one of the characters in "Broken Bonds" is a musician -- she plays an string instrument called a rill, which I imagine is something like an autoharp. I've written lyrics to songs she's supposed to be singing but not the music. I am presently working on finishing up a fourth Aleyne novel and have started work on a fantasy.
If steamy, sensual romance is your thing, then Sandra Fowke is an author you must meet.
From the moment Sandra Fowke discovered erotic romance she just had to write it. Unsatisfied with category romance and slightly repulsed by erotica and porn, this genre opened up a whole new world to the mousy girl from Brisbane, Australia.

For as long as she can remember, Amielise Gable has been a fan of books, writing her first book on fruits and vegetables at age seven. Ever since, she has remained a voracious reader, and later, a book reviewer.
THE GOOD SISTER, a contemporary romance, is her first full length release.
In her spare time, Amie enjoys gardening, photography, and old black and white movies where the hero always gets the heroine.
Sydney-born Donna Gallagher decided at an early age that life needed be tackled head on. Leaving home at 15 she supported herself through her teen years. In her twenties she married a professional sportsman, her love of sport -- especially rugby league -- probably overriding her good sense.
The seven-year marriage was an adventure. There were the emotional ups and downs of having a husband with a public profile in a sometimes glamorous but always high-pressure field. There were always interesting characters to meet and observe and even the opportunity to live for a time in the UK.
Eventually Donna returned home a single woman, but she never lost her passion for watching sport, as well as the people in and around it.
Now happily re-married and with three sons Donna loves coffee mornings with her female friends, sorting through problems from the personal to the international. But she's on even footing with the keenest man when it comes to watching and talking rugby league.
Donna considers herself something of a black sheep in a family of high achievers. Her brother has a doctorate in mathematics and her sister is a well-known sports journalist.
An avid reader, especially of romance, Donna finally found she couldn't stop the characters residing in her imagination from spilling onto paper. Naturally rugby league is the backdrop to her League of Love Series, published through UK publisher Total-E-Bound, spicy tales of hunky heroes and spunky heroines overcoming adversity to eventually find true love.
I began writing romance as a relaxation from a 24/7 career and found it an enjoyable escape, especially after winning first prize in two national competitions and a five book contract with an Australian publisher. Life beyond a professional career suddenly seemed possible, even when the publisher insisted I become Amy Gallow. Fourteen published stories later, Amy has written paranormal, historical and contemporary romance, plus magazine stories without me losing one iota of the zest that triggered the end of a professional career. A film rights contract for The Widow-Maker has grown into the shooting of a promotional trailer for the full length feature film and introduced me to both, the uncertainties of the Australian Film industry and a writer’s responsibilities to produce character breakdowns for casting of the actors. It is fascinating to see figments of imagination become living, breathing individuals—even if they look nothing like the mind pictures that drove their creation. It’s doing the rounds now, trying to drum up enough finance to shoot the whole film.
I signed the contract for my fifteenth story at the end of May and it will be the first one under my own name, opening up a whole new chapter in my writing.

Hi. Welcome to the Coffee Corner of award winning, best selling (USA Today Bestseller List among others) author Samantha Gentry. Come on in, grab a cup, kick off your shoes, and relax. We can talk about whatever you'd like.
My reading tastes are eclectic. I enjoy all sorts of books, both fiction and non-fiction. However, I have to admit that once I started writing I found myself reading more non-fiction than fiction because of my research into various subjects.
My writing is a little more focused—erotic romance (contemporary and suspense), contemporary romance, romantic suspense, and mystery. As time permits, I'm trying something new by working on a couple of paranormal stories. In addition to my ebook releases written as Samantha Gentry, I also have a backlist of 21 novels published with Harlequin Intrigue and Silhouette Desire under my other pseudonym. You'll find the list on my website.
On Sunday mornings I post a new blog and have several contests each year on my website (usually something to do with movie trivia). Stop by and leave a comment on my blog about the current weekly subject and don't forget to enter my website contest.

Hello. I have always had a passion for writing—and reading. My writing genre ..is like my life…it’s taken me several different directions…I have two books currently out in paperback and e book- One Step Ahead Of Danger ..which is a suspense w/ romance and Life Choices which is a women’s/ contemporary novel. I have a paranormal- not romance- Dark Side Of Purgatory- about a drug addict- dead..in Purgatory (duh!) The book is about addiction, recovery and hope. This is in the final ( breathe..) editing stage at Wildchild Publishing. My latest book has been accepted at Whiskey Creek Press, (Don’t Mess With) Clear Lake Women. It’s about a group of women ( 3 straight, one lesbian), their challenges in life and romance, ( a lot of humor and a slice of sweet revenge).
I’ve learned how to make my own book trailers and love the creativity aspect of it.

What do trips around the world, endless nights of breathtaking sex, and a muscular, 6-foot 3-inch, brown-haired, blue-eyed significant other have to do with Kate Hill? Absolutely nothing, but she can dream, can't she? In reality Kate is a single, thirty-something vegetarian New Englander who loves writing romantic fantasies.
Currently, she might not be traveling around the world, but Kate has visited Europe and Africa and those beautiful places have been wonderful inspiration for her writing.

In 1996 her first short story was accepted for publication and since then she has sold over ninety short stories, novellas and novels.

When she's not working on her books, Kate enjoys reading, working out, and researching vampires and Viking history. You can visit her online here.
Anne Hope is the author of emotionally intense romances with a twist—a twist of humor, a twist of suspense, a twist of magic.
As a child, Anne had the nasty habit of scaring her friends and little cousins with stories of witches and vampires. Eventually, she realized that at the heart of every dark tale a compelling romance waits to be told. Now, all her stories are about the redeeming power of love and the heart’s incredible ability to heal…with a scare or two thrown in for good measure.
Her paranormal romantic thriller Soul Bound, Book One in her Dark Souls series, received a Top Pick from RT and was selected as a 2012 RT Reviewers’ Choice Award nominee. She lives in Montreal, Canada, with her husband, her two kids, a well-fed cat and a rambunctious Australian Kelpie.

Rhonda Jackson Joseph has always been an avid, equal opportunity reader. One of her early forays into writing was during junior high school when she produced numerous romance short stories in which she and her best girlfriends were the heroines. The stories were circulated and garnered quite a following. Thus, she found that romance writing came rather natural to her.
Her focus shifted toward horror writing when the elevated hormone levels in her body during pregnancy brought on terrifying nightmares during the scant hours she could find sleep. The dreams demanded to be placed on paper, and she hoped they would then be exorcised. To no avail, as they never completely disappeared. In fact, they multiplied.
Cozy mysteries with a blend of romantic suspense - Stacy Juba had her first book published at age 18 and never stopped writing. Readers and reviewers have referred to her novels as "emotional," "intriguing," "page turners" and "captivating." Her titles include Twenty-Five Years Ago Today and Sink or Swim. She is also the author of children's picture books and young adult novels. Stacy loves chatting with authors and readers, and can't make it through a day without reading a couple of chapters from the books in her large to-read pile. She welcomes fellow book lovers to stop by and chat. Visit her web site for more information about her books and to follow her blog, which features frequent contests and guest posts from other authors.
My name is AC Katt and I write m/m and m/m/f romance. I have two series of book right now. One is Indiscreet about a gay BDSM club located in the Mercer and Monmouth County areas of New Jersey. The current book in the series, Bull’s Whip, was released on January 31st by MLR Press. I also have a stand alone short, Flowers and Chocolates which will be released on February 14th , also from MLR.
My second series is a scifi ménage called The Sarrans, the second of the books, Living With Syn, is being released by JMS Books toward the end of February.
I favor water more than coffee, but chocolate is always at the top of my caffeine list. I'd love to sit back and chat with you about any topic you choose. I write romantic suspense, paranormal, urban fantasy, contemporary romances containing spice and humor. I'm multipublished and my mind continues to click off new ideas, fantasies to pursue.
Please feel free to visit my website, or MySpace page, or FaceBook.
My novels are heavy in fantasy, heart squeezing, thigh-clenching romance, and even give a good chuckle every now and again. I’m not a planner. I don’t write with a set idea because no matter what I plan, the characters’ voices always come through and demand I listen to them. So, I gave up trying to fight it!
The journey as a writer all began when I was a teen and wrote poetry, which still to this day I pull out to have a good laugh. Later on, I tried a couple of times to put a book together with no such luck. Couldn’t ever get past the first few chapters. But once I was exposed to the paranormal world, ideas came quickly.
At first, it was a way to keep my brain alive since being a stay at home mom can be a little let’s say―numbing. It was an escape from screaming kids, dirty diapers and plain old mom duty. It started as a hobby, but as the stories progressed it became a passion. Now, I indulge at nap time, especially the juicy bits! Every mom needs a good thrill!
So here in Kitchener, Ontario, I am a thirty one year old wife, mom, house cleaner, cook, teacher, play-doh extraordinaire, swing pusher, toddler chaser after – who loves the outdoors, curling up with the latest flick, and if I’m not plugging away at a new novel, I’ve got my nose buried deep in a good book. So there it is―my life!

Tambra loves to read paranormal, romantic suspense, Mediaeval and Scottish romances. Some of her favorite authors are Sherrilyn Kenyon, Kerrelyn Sparks, Kresley Cole, JR Ward, Michelle Hasker and Rita Thedford.

I write 'dead romantic' fiction, ranging from paranormals to retro-- as an ex-ghost tour guide with her head stuck in the 80s/90s, I've got lots of material to work with. I've lived in five different countries, and moved far too many times to mention. I grew up in a small sea-side town on the coast of North Wales, and lived in a house that backs onto a graveyard (yes, I've got stories to share about that) Perhaps that is why I'm fascinated with all things dark and macabre.
Currently, I live in North Carolina And when I'm not writing, I can be found reading/watching anything vampire related or cooking up a British storm in my kitchen. I've left a clear trail so you can stalk me all over the web, start here: www.joannekenrick !
So, come on in... let's talk books, writing, vampires, ghosts and food! Clotted Cream scones are at the door, along with the PG Tips! :)

I'm a multi-published author of sensuous historical romance and erotic romance. I'm particularly fond of seductively wicked alpha heroes with a taste for spirited, intelligent heroines. My stories are sizzling romances that capture the rich array of emotions that accompany that most fabulous human phenomena – falling in love.
When I'm not writing or researching my next story, I enjoy spending time with my own hero hiking, biking, reading romances and biographies, visiting wineries, or relaxing on the Outer Banks’ beautiful beaches.
As you might guess, I'm a born romantic. I adore a sensuous, passionate love story of desire's transformation to love. Hope you'll check out my releases at my website.

I have always wanted to be a writer but didn't actually pursue that dream until a few years ago. My main goal is to put feelings into words. I want people to feel something when they read my books. I write paranormal, sci-fi, and fantasy romance.
On a more personal note I enjoy hairy chests, fangs and walks in the moonlight. HA. HA.
I write what I enjoy in the hopes that others will enjoy my stories as well.

I write erotic romance for the mature adult and strive to write so the reader is pulled into my stories as a silent character to participate in my world. I hope you're able to feel a part of the story and experience, as best you can, what my characters experience. I'd love to hear your thoughts so feel free to email me or visit my blog and leave your comments. You can also find my books at Smashwords Below are also a few links for us to chat with each other so please click and comment!
I write fast paced, fun, laugh out loud science fiction/romance and paranormal romances. Stressed out? Ready to kill someone? Sit down, get some chocolate and read one of my books. They're guaranteed to make you forget the world for a hour or two. Hey, it's easier than going to jail.
My science fiction/romance books are Just My Luck and The Warlord's Comeuppance.
The Nasty Vamp is a paranormal/romance. Bunny just found out her perfect Prince Charming is a vampire.
I'm currently working on I Hear Voices. Our heroine uses her psychic abilities to search for Montezuma's lost treasure while trying to ditch an Indiana Jones wannabe hot on her trail.

Anyone who talks to me long enough notices I'm a bit on the quirky side.
My husband says it’s because I’m a crazy writer, and I tend to agree with him. When I look at the world around me, I see people and places that take on fantastical attributes. A man walking across the street just isn't a man, he's a troll, on the hunt for the blue fairy. A women speeding down my
street is being chased by steam punk elves, because she stole their aether
Luckily, for me, my family loves and accepts my unique
brand of crazy. They even encourage me to write down my silly notions. Although
my son will tell you there is far too much kissing in my stories!
Welcome! I write sexy, sensual and erotic contemporary romance. I didn’t start out to write erotic romance, but I had this idea….Well, the rest is history. I found I had a talent for writing steamy scenes – who knew?, and I’ve never looked back. If you like alpha heroes and heroines strong enough to take them on, then we’ll get along just fine. Grab a chair. I’ll pass the tea (you can have coffee if you want) and cookies and we’ll chat for a while about love, passion and romance, or anything else that suits our fancy. Chocolate chip, or Snickerdoodle? You choose.
Eva Lefoy writes and reads all kinds of romance, and is a certified Trekkie. She’s also terribly addicted to chocolate, tea, and hiking. One of these days, she’ll figure out the meaning of life, quit her job, and go travel the galaxy. Until then, she’s writing down all her dirty thoughts for the sake of future explorers.
I've always had a soft spot for cowboys, horses, romance and the 'old west', but never gave much thought to penning my own stories until I came across the phenomenal Judith McNaught and Johanna Lindsey. Both women created memorable characters and storylines that inspired me to combine my passions and pursue a career in writing romance. To date, I have two western historicals published through Asylett Press, with a third one due out soon. I enjoy meeting fans of the western romance genre and talking about all things western and romance related. Stop by my forum to say hello and gab about cowboys and the grit of the 'old west'.

I am a multi published author and I write mainly erotic, paranormal romance. Although, really, I just write whatever my characters tell me to. I live in Northern Ireland, where although the scenery is fantastic, our weather leaves a lot to be desired. My natural habitat is the bedroom with a notebook, a cup of tea and copious amounts of chocolate. I'm scatty, disorganised, and easily distracted, so come say hi!
Hello, I’m Hywela Lyn, although I’ve always been called Lyn and am quite happy to answer to that – it’s easier to pronounce than ‘Hywela’! I lived most of my life in Wales, where I was born and raised, and Welsh myths and legends inspired much of my writing. My stories usually take place in that ‘other world’ of fantasy which might be in the far past or the far future but which relies on the heroes and heroine's courage and quick wits to survive the trials before them.
From an early age I had two great loves – books and horses. Nothing has changed, only now I write the stories I love to read and have two real horses of my own, rather than the imaginary ones I had as a child. I love the idea of space travel and starships, but I also like the idea of a tranquil world with little technology and a simple lifestyle. By writing science fantasy I can have it both ways! Come join me for romance that’s ‘out of this world’.

Writes historical western romances. Her first novel, The Wren, was a CAPA winner for best new author traditional, a Texas Gold finalist, and a HOLT Medallion finalist for best first book. Visit her online here.
Kristy has been writing since she was very young, but it wasn’t until she was a stay-at-home mom that she considered becoming published. A fascination with science led her to earn two engineering degrees—she did her undergraduate work at Arizona State University and her graduate studies at the University of Pittsburgh—but storytelling was always her favorite hobby. Born and raised in Arizona, and recently returned after a 20 year absence in Pittsburgh, she writes Old West romances to capture the landscapes that were such a big part of her childhood.

Petie McCarty writes for Desert Breeze Publishing and pens suspenseful contemporary romances with an environmental flavor. Her debut novel Everglades featured a wild airboat ride though the famed River of Grass with a hunky Seminole guide. Catch of the Day paired a spunky redhead with a sexy Special Ops Coast Guardcaptain in the zany all-male Loon Lake Tournament. Both books combine sensually-charged romance with action-adventures in exciting natural settings.
Petie's new Rescue Angel romances will debut with the release of No Going Back in April2013, followed by Angel to the Rescue in December 2013. These romances will each have an angel hidden in the plot, and the angel's identity will not be revealed until the story's finale. The possibilities are endless.
In No Going Back, Kellen Brand's inheritance turns out to be a whopper -- one dilapidated farm in West Virginia and one guardian angel.
Petie loves to chat with readers about characters or writing or life after publication or anything having to do with books. Drop by her website
As a neighbor to Rhett Butler and Scarlett O'Hara, Miss Mae suggests you carry a ready fan in hand. Not to cool the blush of your cheeks as you devour her romance books, but to swat at those Jurassic Park blood-sucking mosquitoes when you’re fool enough to sit under the limbs of those Spanish-moss draped live oak trees!
Okay. Reality check. Maybe I used to live in the area of bygone southern plantation homes, but now I reside in northern Georgia where the Appalachian mountains stretch as far as the eye can see. In either locale, my laid-back country roots has shaped my way of thinking and instilled my Pure Southern Genteel style of writing.
There are a lot of romance books in the world and some really terrific romance authors. But I choose to be somewhat different. I situate my romances with a good mystery. It’s the circumstances of the mysteries that throw my hero and heroine together. Once ensnared in the evil plot I plunge them into (wicked laugh), they can’t help but see that by story’s end that…well, shucks, they actually like each other!

Nana’s love of all things romance and adventure started with a tattered romantic suspense she borrowed from her cousin on a sultry summer afternoon in Ghana at a precocious thirteen. She’s been in love with kick butt heroines ever since.
With her overactive imagination, and channeling her inner Buffy, it was only a matter a time before she started creating her own characters. Waiting for her chance at a job as a ninja assassin, Nana, meantime works out her drama, passion and sass with fictional characters every bit as sassy and kick butt as she thinks she is. Though, until that ninja job comes through, you’ll find her acting out scenes for hubby and puppy while catching up on her favorite reality television shows in sunny San Diego.

There are more things in heaven and earth Horatio then are dreamt of in your philosophy. (Shakespeare: Hamlet, Act 1, Scene 5)
While I’ll never be in Shakespeare’s league, I have to agree with the bard—or the ghost, if you’ve read the play—there are more things in heaven and earth than I can dream about, but that won’t stop me from trying to write them down and share them with whoever wants to read them.
Every book is a journey. Sometimes spooky, sexy, angst-y or thrilling, but I love to share the ride.

Cate Masters likes romance with a dash of magic and mayhem! Multipublished in contemporary to historical, sweet to erotic, fantasy/dark fantasy to speculative, she sometimes mashes genres. Reviewers have described her stories as “so compelling, I did not want to put it down,” and “such romantic tales that really touch your soul.”
When not spending time with her family, she can be found in her lair, concocting a magical brew of contemporary, historical, and fantasy/paranormal stories with her cat Chairman Maiow and dog Lily as company. Look for her here, and in strange nooks and far-flung corners of the web.
Cate loves to hear from readers! If you’re too shy to post here, friend her on Facebook or Goodreads, or email her

I’m a busy wife and mother by day and work full time in the corporate world, but after dark, the romance novelist comes out to play. I’ve written many short stories, novellas, and novels in genres ranging from YA to erotica. I write mostly paranormal and science fiction, but I do have a few contemporary works too. I love to talk to readers, writers, and aspiring writers. I’ve been writing since my teens but only recently decided it was time to pursue a career doing what I love. I also host the Blog Talk Radio show Must Love Books. Visit my website
Humorous romantic comedy that skirts the cliff of sexual expression, but never takes the plunge. That would be my writing “style”. My contemporary romances are not “sweet” but they aren’t “dirty” either. What would be the middle ground? SUMMERLAND, my debut novel released through Noble Romance has a bit of sweet, a touch of steam and a lot of laughter.
My name is Desi (D.B.) Moon. I have been a freelance (content) writer for four years, but a fiction writer since I could hold a pencil. My first short story (at the age of seven) was deemed morbid by my parents. I have been pushing the envelope ever since.
I reside in beautiful Boulder, Colorado with my enchanting husband, two irritatingly charming children, three very entitled cats and one hopelessly neurotic, but none the less lovable Beagler.
When not corralling or arguing with the voices in my head (ie. my characters) I work as a dog trainer, am a vet tech student, and am an all around coffee snob. Seeking out of the way coffeehouses to find that elusive of all drinks, the perfect caramel latte

She now spends her days writing hot and spicy paranormal and contemporary tales for Ellora’s Cave and Cerridwen Press, some of which contain the odd body or two.

I write sensual and erotic tales of romance with lashings of treachery and intrigue. There’s often a villain you’ll love to hate but there’s always a super hot hero and a well-matched, deserving heroine. I love the Regency but also set my stories during times of great historical upheaval. I love chatting with readers and other authors and would love you to stop by to say hello or share some interesting historical fact. Who knows, it could trigger a whole new story idea!

I think I’d be in the majority if I said I like to see the good guys or girls come out on top, when I read a book or see a movie. Very few of us want to see the bully, the cheater, or the manipulator win. That’s one reason I love to read about people of faith who find the strength to overcome obstacles and defeat the odds against them. Sure, villains make the story more interesting, but should they win -- naw, not in my book. Speaking of books, I wanted my first romance to be in a romantic setting with a bit of suspense with a handsome, strong hero who wins over a headstrong woman who said she’d never date again after her fiancé, a no-good louse, broke her heart.
When I’m not writing or reading I like to swim, walk on the beach and visit with my friends and family. People watching can be fun too.

Mysti Parker (pseudonym) is a full time wife, mother, writer, and chocoholic. Her first novel, A Ranger's Tale was published in January, 2011 by Melange Books, and the second in the fantasy romance series, Serenya's Song, was published in April 2012. The highly anticipated third book, Hearts in Exile, has already received some great reviews. The Tallenmere series has been likened to Terry Goodkind's 'Sword of Truth' series, but is probably closer to a spicy cross between Tolkien and Mercedes Lackey. She resides in Buckner, KY with her husband, three children, three cats, one dog, three hermit crabs, and a huge aquarium full of mutt fish.
Tami Parrington (Tammy Lee) is a writer whose personal life is as eclectic as her writing. The author of three novels, numerous articles and short stories, as well as several screenplays, she is a loving mother of two grown children, and devoted grandmother of two. She has been married to her soul mate for twenty-five years and lives on a farm in central Illinois where she raises just about every farm animal possible, and has successfully shown everything from rabbits to horses.
People and places lost in time, restless spirits, haunting melodies, spine tingling suspense, sizzling romance, both contemporary and historical--these are my stories. I don't believe in following trends. I prefer originality in both my reading and in what I write. If you enjoy mystery, suspense and the not so normal paranormal romance, you've come to the right place. You'll find book promos here and lively reader - writer discussions.

Greetings...I'm Eva Pasco, the Chick Lit Queen for Boomer Babes, confirming that love, passion, and adventure remain integral parts of a woman's life at any age. Tired of reading stories exonerating women of financial means who forsook it all in the Second Act of Life to take up sky diving, mountain climbing, or seeking mysticism in Tibet, I took a look around. The women in my circle have commitments, obligations, and reservations about jumping outside the box. Instead, we scrabble up the sides to peer over the edges. That's when Carla Matteo stepped into my field of vision with all of her quirks, inhibitions, anxieties, and fears. The seeds for my Romance/Women's Fiction novel, UNDERLYING NOTES, were sown.
More than a cocktail for hot flashes and fluctuating libido, UNDERLYING NOTES is grounded in reality, littered with debris from the Sixties, and driven by Carla's fragrance addiction. The "juice" offers incentive for her to find her own niche during a midlife renaissance, while the ominous rose note in Paloma Picasso forces her to confront a troubled past.

If you like ‘Sweet’ Edge of Your Seat Romantic Suspense/Mysteries you’ve come to the right place. Don’t let the ‘Sweet’ fool you, my books are far from boring. My heroines are strong-willed, often very opinionated, ladies who usually wind up in a big mess of trouble and need a handsome man to come along and bail them out—though they’d never admit to needing the help. As suspense junkie, my ultimate goal in every story is to have the reader so engrossed they're up all night reading.

Seers, Seraphs, Immortals and more! Urban fantasy meets paranormal romance in the Emerald Seer Series.
I focused primarily on epic fantasy works (under another pen name) until the idea for Storm popped in my head one day. She proved quite stubborn and I simply could not shake her (I think that comes out some in her debut) so Ryder on the Storm was born. I find this series to be a much needed hiatus from my fantasy series and truly enjoy each new development.

Making Love from Payne... because, sometimes...Love Hurts.
"Maria-Claire Payne" is my alter-ego who writes erotic romance. I especially enjoy writing stories that are a mash-up of genres, and I refuse to stay put in any one genre! Where's the fun in that?
That other Claire? Well, she holds multiple professional credentials related to the field of radiation oncology and a graduate degree in psychology. Both personalities share a love of taking classes in English literature and reading in many genres as well as getting inked and admiring biker dudes from afar. When no new reading material is readily at hand for whatever reason, my children have caught me reading cereal box-tops to fill the void. I live in Southern Florida with my two rather conservative (how did that happen?) teenagers, the ghost of my soul-mate (my muse), and a crew of Himalayan and Persian cats affectionately referred to as the “Pussy Posse.”
Drop on by and chat here at my table in the Coffee Corner and drop me a line at my website --I'd love to hear from you!

I was raised in Europe and moved to the Southwest a while back, where the romance of the desert called and keep me tight in it's embrace.
I write Paranormal romances that are steeped with European fantasy and ancient fairytale realms and modern times, just enough to make anyone wonder what lurks beyond the realm of our own sanity. Who would ever consider crossing paths with a vampire harboring a secret yearning for redemption? What of a ghost hunter that harbors a secret so deep and dark that even his television viewers haven't realized he's a centuries old gatherer of souls?
If paranormal isn't quite your thing, there's always the enchanting Dante, from My Lord Raven. Can a man be haunted by dreams of a true love he's never met?

Writing is my passion. Since I like a variety of books, I write a variety. I have time-travel romances, historical romances and fantasy romances that are mostly historical. One of my time-travels is a contemporary with an 1886 gun-slinging heroine thrown into the present day. I also have a contemporary romantic suspense that received a highly sensual rating that thrilled me. I write romances that anyone can read and are not x-rated.
When I’m not writing romances, I write fantasy short stories that are set in the world of Augeas which is filled with magic and intrigue. I love the idea of magic and use it whenever I can. My newest release is a historical mystery. There is a romance in it, but the Dressed for Dying is more about the catching the killer.
If you like a story with love, suspense and maybe some paranormal aspects, drop by and check-out my stories.

My name is Jerry Race. I'm a writer as well as a reader.
In 2000 I became serious about writing and became a member of an online writers workshop & I'm still there. Each member helps the other to better their writing and I've learned a great deal from that workshop. I also belong to a couple of wonder yahoo groups. All members in each group help each other.
Anyway, I've gotten a couple of horror short stories sold. Plus I've completed my 1st novel MS and have an agent waiting for it. Plus I'm writing my 1st MM romantic erotica novel MS. Since I like a lot of genre I'm dabbling in: horror, suspense, romantic suspense and maybe one day a comedy or even a mystery or two.
So, if you like what you see in my forum please let me know. I like good feedback. Don't we all..

Hello readers! I write erotic romance, often paranormal, although I throw in some contemporary as well. I’ve been writing as long as I can remember, and I’ve been a full time writer for the last few years. My books are red hot, and often include ménages. Expect some kink, some male/male sex in the context of the ménage, frank language, and a whole lot of sizzling sex. I love to include elements of magic in my stories, and my characters are often witches.

With homage to our favourite romantic comedies of the 90s, Keshia Robertson writes fresh sensual to erotic contemporary romance with a multicultural twist. When she isn't crafting stories of sexy heroes and witty heroines you can find her on twitter @startswithakesh or on her website discussing her preferred writing techniques or the latest episode of a Korean drama.
Judith Rochelle writes contemporary romance, mostly romantic suspense. I live in the Texas Hill Country, surrounded by hunky cowboys, gorgeous landscapes and an oversupply of alpha males. I live with my three cats, a herd of deer, a raccoon named Ralph and a pair of roadrunners named Katherine and Eugene. When I’m not writing I read, watch football and collect wine. My imagination never shuts off so if you see me out and about I’m usually being nosy about the people around me and scribbling in a journal I carry with me. Also, my friends laugh because a lot of my ideas come to me in the shower. I should probably spend more time in there.
I was born and raised in the suburbs of D.C, and now reside in the south with (sometimes) Prince Charming and my overly large (and way too hyper) nutty family. I'm a Walking Dead, True Blood and Lost Girl nut. My fix is coffee and reading.
Little known facts: I've been on the Gordon Elliot Show and have owned ferrets, crawdads, rats, flying squirrels and a barnyard of other animals/critters. No, I did not get any of them. They came to me. Yes, including the crawdads. Did you know they do it missionary? I didn't either but have pictures to prove it.
Truthfully I write all over the board. When I sit to pen a tale, I never truly know what it will be or where it will go. I'm as much along for the ride as anyone else. I can promise there will be quirk, heat and a Happily Ever After.
I'm a member of RomCom Critters on Yahoo, RWA, RWA Chapter Group #213 member and Treasurer 2010, President 2011, Education Chair 2013.
I love to make up stories about badass alpha heroes and the women who love them and keep them guessing. I've been reading romances for over thirty years and I'm never without a paperback or my Kindle.
I'm drawn to reading interesting plots and bad-boy sexy heroes, so you’ll find those in the stories I write as well. My other interests include playing the cello and collecting antique pottery.
In real life I work at a large US insurance company, but at home I'm either writing, reading, or spending time with my husband – my real life hero. We have a daughter in college and a cat who loves to watch me type.

Endless Passion, Timeless Romance.
Amy discovered her love of the written word when she realized that she could no longer act out the fantastical romances in her head with her dolls. Writing about delicious heroes was much more fun than playing with plastic men dolls with the inevitable flesh-colored tighty-whities.
She loves history, the paranormal, science fiction, urban fantasy and will spew out historical facts like a volcano, much to her dearest hubby's chagrin.
When she's not thinking about the next sensual romp, she's chasing after three rug rats and reading anything spicy she can get her hands on.

Author of erotic romantic fiction and cover artist for Black Velvet Seductions. I have worked with BVS for some time and I enjoy the way things work there; there is very much a family feel. My writing is a bit on the steamy side but it is the emotional content that drives my characters. My aim is to get a deep point of view with my characters, let the readers really get inside the story and hopefully empathise with the people involved. I always value feedback from readers and other authors and I am always happy to chat and share thoughts on writing and art.

Hi Readers! Welcome to my Author’s Corner at Coffee Time Romance!
I’ve been writing romances for over twenty years. During that time, I’ve written and had published 13 historical romance novels. My stories have been set on ships during Viking times, ranches in the Old West, forts during Fur Trade times, villages in Indian territory, and in caves during prehistoric times.
I am very happy to announce that I’ve placed several of my historical romances (previously print published) with two highly respected epublishers: The Wild Rose Press and Red Rose Publishing Please watch this space for announcements of when my ebooks will be released at various times over the next year or so.
Lately, I’ve turned my hand to writing contemporary women’s stories and hope to release some of those stories soon as well. My foray into writing contemporaries has been surprising to say the least. Surprising because I didn’t realize how quickly things can change in a story. For example, I’d give a character a flip open cell phone and a year or two later I’d have to update it in the story just to keep up with our society’s changes in technology. Compare that to, say, Vikings who for centuries could only shout in the wind on the deck of a tossing ship to communicate with one another. Much simpler times! J
Because the book world is changing so quickly, I’m making changes as to how I connect with my readers. I am anticipating that Coffee Time Romance will be an important website for my blogging and for staying in touch with my readers. I also have a FB page, as well as a MySpace page. Besides Coffee Time Romance, the other best way to get hold of me is to contact me via Theresa Scott's Website
Let the reading begin!
Janice Seagraves grew up with a deep love of science fiction and adventure stories. Always the consummate artist, she traded in her paint brush for a laptop to write breathless life-affirming novels that celebrate enduring love.
She lives in a hundred year old haunted house (not kidding) with her husband of many years and their grown daughter. When not writing, you can find her in the yard either gardening or snapping a photo or two.
Otherworldly Tales. That's probably the best way to describe the stories I love to write. My muse doesn't like genre restrictions, but I mainly write urban fantasy, paranormal, and Sci-Fi tales with a dark edge. I also don't shy away from horror stories, because I love zombies.
I live in Sydney, Australia with my husband, daughter, and cat. I spend every available moment I have writing. And when I'm not writing, I'm usually thinking about it. Although, I do love to go for walks, enjoy watching good movies, and TV shows. I'm also a huge reader and love collecting books.
Oh, and I love to chat, so feel free to drop in any time!

Life is truly like a box of chocolates and sometimes filled with nuts. Forest Gump is my idol. Welcome to my table in the Coffee Corner. I've been writing for ten years now, and I have a large array of books available and more coming out this year. Yep, I'm a genre hopper. Recently blogged about the topic and found out I'm not alone. My books are all character driven, so like the readers, I never know the ending until I get there. When I stop having voices in my head, then I'll worry. I hope to attract some new friends, fans, and readers here, and also invite you to visit my website, where all my beautiful covers and several of my trailers are featured. Also, my blog, Dishin' It Out, has been well received and a popular gathering place for my fellow authors to promote their work. I believe we're all a team.

Although I’ve lately been enthralled by creating paranormal fiction with varying levels of sensuality, my work as a whole spans a wide range of genres. It's currently and/or soon to be published by Ellora's Cave, Cerridwen Press, Samhain Publishing, Double Dragon Publishing, and MojoCastle Press.
Some day, when I allow myself to take the time and make the effort, I'd like to secure an agent and break into the wild 'n' woolly world of "da big dogz" in New York. Right now, though, I'm just too focused on my writing.

Welcome to my little corner of cyberspace.
Creating characters and developing stories is something that I love to do. It brings me joy. Sharing those stories, knowing that my characters are capturing the imagination of others? Well, that's even a greater thrill.
I was first published in 2005 and in 2007 was able to leave what I used to call my “real life” job to pursue writing and working in the publishing industry full-time. The years that I spent working in the psychiatric field definitely influences my writing, allowing me to bring a unique perspective to my characters and their stories.
I currently live in Southern California with my husband of seventeen years, my fourteen-year-old son, and my cocker spaniel, Buck. My husband is a social worker who works with abused children. He’s an avid sailor who loves to surf, and you’ll find bits of him in every hero that I’ve ever written. My son is wonderfully sensitive, with a sarcastic sense of humor. He plays piano, composes his own music, is a competitive fencer, and worships video games.
I’ve written in a variety of romance sub-genres including romantic suspense, contemporary, historical, and paranormal. For the past two years I’ve been immersed in the writing of my Forbidden urban fantasy series, which USA Today Best Selling Author Kelley Armstrong says is, "A steamy romance with the perfect mix of drama and humor."
The series offers what I think of as a fresh new twist on the classic vampire tale of seduction. It has a heroine that you’ll envy and a hero that you’ll find yourself wanting to spend eternity with. Have I tempted you yet? Good. As my hero Byron Renfield would say, “Sometimes, temptation can be a good thing.”
Come step inside my imagination…

Recipe for a good romance: Dollop of humor, smidge of sarcasm, a dash of spice and turn up the heat!
Seems like I’ve been writing since forever. I penned my first book at the age of 10. It was an “epic fantasy” and included all the kids in the neighborhood as knights and ladies fair. Since that time, I haven’t stopped and I’m excited to be able to share my worlds and casts of characters with you.
Come in and talk books, writing, recipes and a little bit of everything with me!

In my books you will experience humor pathos and sometimes danger but always there is love. In my world of historical romanceI love to create characters my readers can truly care about. I started writing at the age of 15 (many many moons ago). I don't know what made me start to write only that it was a compulsion I couldn't ignore and that compulsion remains with me today. I hope you enjoy reading my books about these fascinating eras as much as I enjoy writing about them.

The idea of magical abilities had always fascinated me, starting with King Arthur and Merlin. Eight books in my Druid series deal with the fairly modern people who have inherited Druid powers, and how they use their powers to help the good guy (or gal) and defeat the villain. Have started a new series about Mages, hoping to title it the Magical Mages. Few know what a mage is, so I start the first book, Damien's Destiny, with an explanation of the word. Merlin was a mage. and the sexy cover and excerpt for Damien's Destiny is on my website.
The lure of magic is still strong. Love to answer questions or just chat about Druids and Mages. Let's chat!!!! Do you believe abilities can be inherited?

My debut novel, Turning the Tide, is published by Choc Lit, ‘where heroes are like chocolate – irresistible!’ Winning a tin of chocolate in a national essay competition at primary school inspired me to become a writer, so being published by Choc Lit is something of a dream come true!
Setting off, with my husband, from the east coast in a vintage wooden boat to sail halfway round Britain provided the initial inspiration for Turning the Tide. The sleepy backwaters, quiet anchorages and picturesque harbours, not to mention the characters we met along the way, gave me plenty more to write about!

I love writing romantic suspense because it throws the hunky hero and intrepid heroine together under extraordinary circumstances and pits them against a clever villain. Although some of my books are set in the state of Maine, where I live, I write about more exotic settings as well, such as a sultry Caribbean island and romantic Italy. Reviewers have called my stories fast-paced, thrilling, action-packed, sizzling, and highly emotional.
My books have received the Golden Leaf and Laurie awards and finaled in the Bookseller's Best and the Daphne. My most recent book, Deadly Memories, was a 2006 Romantic Times Magazine Top Pick and Reviewer's Choice Award nominee. I live with my husband on the coast of Maine. A former teacher, I enjoy curling up with a good book, gardening, walking the dog, sailing (if the day is sunny and the wind light), and hiking (if the trail is moderate). Look for my next release, Primal Obsession, due out in late 2008. Please visit my website to read excerpts and enter my contest.

When you need a little paranormal in your romance.
Welcome to my forum! Grab a latte and come chat a while. I write paranormal romantic suspense. There’s nothing I enjoy more then a good book filled witches, psychics, werewolves, or vampires facing a life or death situation. However, I also enjoy a good male/male erotic romance and I’m currently working on a m/m vampire story. If you enjoy these books too come on in and get comfortable. For more info visit my website.
If you like accurate historical romances without compromising steamy intimate scenes between vivid and addicting characters, then you've come to the right place. Renee Vincent is a highly energetic author, whose traits are naturally transformed into her writing of face-paced, action-filled, plot-twisting epics in the tumultuous time period of 10th Century.
Her passions include Norse and Irish history, horses, and irresistible, brawny warrior heroes. RÆLIKSEN, her first historical romance that debuted in Dec. 2008, is jam packed with those and more. The sequel, MAC LIAM, due to release in 2010, will not disappoints either, as a love triangle - initially mentioned in RÆLIKSEN - will unfold and completely tantalize.

Greetings from the Heart of Texas where I live with my journalist husband and two dogs—Jolie Blon, a spoiled Cajun poodle; and Mardi Gras, a retired pet therapy dog.

Born and raised in Arizona, my travels had been limited to California, Nevada, and New Mexico until I married a man doing a stint in the Army. If the Army offered nothing else, we at least had the opportunity to see a good part of the world. And we found we liked moving around. Our gypsy hearts have kept us on the move in civilian life but we think we've settled down at last on the prairie in northern Arizona. When I'm not at my laptop, I enjoy hiking, motorcycling, fishing, live theater, and baseball.
I’ve been writing most of my life, but didn’t take myself seriously as a writer. I was convinced I was meant to be an artist. Sometime after college, I found more satisfaction filling a blank page with words than an empty canvas with color. I left my paints behind.
I love connecting with readers so feel free to contact me: email@example.com
When she was little, Anita Whiting would spend hours reading. It didn’t matter whether it was in the bathtub, in a car or huddled under the covers with a nightlight after her mother thought she was in bed. By the time she was in the sixth grade, she was trying her hand at poetry and short stories some of which were published in the school newspapers. However, it was only after raising three children and working as an obstetrical nurse for years that she finally tried her hand at a full length novel. It went so well that she wrote another and another. Nothing pleases her more than reading a good book and she hopes you feel the same about hers.

I am a Nigerian author and blogger and will be sharing my romantic poems and stories of love set in Nigeria with coffeetime romance. I have self-published two novels, contemporary, and multicultural romances that confirm that love stories cut across race and geography, and showcase local characters in a loving relationship, something that is almost never seen in African books. My newly released novel, A LOVE REKINDLED, is set in the United States and Nigeria, and is a story that entertains, is emotionally engaging, and provides a window into Nigerian culture, places and people. This book was selected into the second round of the Amazon/Penguin Breakthrough Novel Awards 2011. I also plans to write more books and would make ALR the first of a series, which is always popular. My first novel, A Heart to Mend, was very well received, and has garnered a substantial following on blogger, Facebook and Twitter. It was also subsequently published in 2010, to good reviews, in Nigeria. Visit my website

Science Fiction Erotic Romance author and creator of the P.I.A.C.T Undercover agent series -- S.J's future worlds and societies are so real you'll forget, while reading, that interstellar space travel doesn't exist. S.J.'s character driven universe is as tough and variable as the people who inhabit it, characters who live and love as hard as the cold vacuum of the space which houses them.
The depth of descriptive detail and personality within the P.I.A.C.T. series has reviewers describing the novels as "emotionally intense and romantic" and to hail them as a "definite keeper." Searing novels that are "so sensual that your partner should be within reach," and so realistic they'd "have given Gene Roddenberry a run for his money."
If you like your romance to be an unforgettable adventure, full of new and strange worlds, then come along and see what P.I.A.C.T is all about. If you need your heroes and heroines to be gritty, real life people who deal with life's disasters and love so deeply they are willing to die for it, then S.J's novels should be more than enough to satisfy your desires -- completely.
