Anytime, Anywhere Shannon McKenna

For years, Robin MacNamara has been secretly in love with her big brother’s friend Jon Amendola, but the sexy cop has never seen her as anything but a kid. Until Robin follows him to an isolated cabin to prove she’s all grown up. Unfortunately, Jon’s last case isn’t quite closed—and someone wants payback…

After The Lovin’ E.C. Sheedy

In need of a place to hide, Tommi Smith finds herself on the doorstep of a high school classmate’s remote fishing lodge. Though Mac Fleming never trusted this knockout’s reputation for breaking hearts, nothing’s going to stop him from seducing her into his bed now. Until Tommi’s past comes back to haunt them…

Deal With The Devil Cate Noble

All Ellie McMann DeLuca wants is one night with the only man she’s ever truly loved—Max DeLuca, dubbed the Devil by the Italian paparazzi. Max agrees on one condition: they extend it to seven nights of sensual pleasure on a private island. But after a whole week of fulfilling each other’s deepest desires, how will they go back to the way things were?

About Cate Noble:

Cate Noble likes trouble. Her specialty: high intensity romantic thrillers that never let up—with tall, dark and devilish heroes who never let you down. A former accountant, she now enjoys making sure danger, intrigue, and drop-dead romance add up to an adrenaline rush her readers won’t soon forget. Cate and her vivid imagination live in Florida with her real-life hero.

About E. C. Sheedy:

E. C. Sheedy lives on an island and writes to the sound of the ocean nudging the shore a few feet from her door. She avoids dust bunnies, cooking, and large parties at all costs and is happiest sitting by a winter fire with a good book, or better yet, a good friend.

She loves her husband because he humors her addiction to movies and tolerates her aversion to pots and pans, and she is dog-gone crazy about her hundred-pound Rhodesian Ridgeback, Roan, who loves every word she writes—or at least has the commonsense to look as though he does.

In her stories, EC likes her heroines smart, her heroes strong—and lots of anticipation. She gets both scared spitless and wild with delight when she sees someone reading her work.

And she salutes the readers of romance who, in a too often loveless world, continue to support books that acknowledge the glory in human bonding and the eternal power of love.


About Shannon McKenna:

I started writing my first romance novel in secret. I was working a temp job in an insurance office in Manhattan at the time, and the office manager had made it clear that even if there was nothing to do, I still had to look busy-- never one of my big talents. I felt bad about the wasted time, though, and I needed something to round out my other chosen career, which was singing. Yeah, that's right. Most artists choose a more practical Plan B to back up their improbable Plan A. Me? No way. "Long Shot" is my middle name.

So I sneakily set up a Document 1 and a Document 2 with a spreadsheet on it. If my Boss du Jour walked by I could quick-like-a-bunny switch screens, and whenever the coast was clear, I went back to my story. Not that I was slacking, mind you. If there was work to be done, I did it. The sneakiness felt familiar, though, because I've been teased about reading romances since I was a kid. I think the day I finally grew up was the day I stopped trying to cover up what I was reading on the bus, train or subway. Let people think whatever they like.

It wasn't until I moved to Italy that I got serious about writing, though. I found myself with many long, quiet days alone with nothing to do, so I slogged my way bravely to the end of the manuscript and sent it out. Everybody rejected it-except for Kensington. I wrote for them for a few years, and then made a bid for an erotic novella for the new Brava imprint, and oh joy, they accepted it. Then I wrote BEHIND CLOSED DOORS. And so on, and so forth.

That's how I started. I can't think of anything I'd rather do. I never knew it would be so scary, and so hard . . . all that solitude and silence, a blank computer screen, and no one to blame. But still. It's worth it. It's great.
