Alleigh Burrows loves romance novels. For years she tore through anything she could find—mainly regency romances, but would never pass up a hot Navy SEAL, an overbearing Scotsman, or shape shifting feline.

After reading a particularly intriguing series, she decided she, too, could write a romance novel. How hard could it be? She had worked in communications for years.

So, she started writing Dare to Love while working full-time and raising two teenagers. Not surprising, it was slow going.

Fast forward five years. The kids go off to college, and she was finally able to dedicate time to her husband, her cat, and her writing.

Dare to Love is Alleigh’s first novel, but it won’t be her last. Be sure to visit alleighburrows.com or @alleighburrows to see what her next project will be.
