Yes, I'm in there! Where else would I be with a title like that? ^_^ Here's a little more about each of us.
Cassandra Carr is a multi-published, award-winning erotic romance writer with Ellora's Cave, Siren, Sybarite Seductions, and Loose Id who lives in Western New York with her husband, Inspiration, and her daughter, Too Cute for Words. When not writing she enjoys watching hockey and hanging out on Twitter. Cassandra's book Caught was recently named Best BDSM Book 2011 by LoveRomancesCafe and Impact was named BDSM Book of the Month for May 2012 by BDSM Book Reviews.
Cynnara Tregarth is currently living in the state that resembles one of her favourite male body parts (otherwise known as Florida). She learned early how to read, write and entertain. Due to her mother, Cynnara spent way too much on books, but then again, it sent her on the quest for immortality. (She’s still looking for that.)
Early in 2003, she found that route by getting her books published. Since then, she’s learned even more about love, life, sexuality, and how to annoy gods, goddesses, and siblings of all kinds. After her mom’s death in 2008, she spent time taking care of her health and relearning her craft. Now, in 2013, she’s expanding herself beyond romance into both nonfiction and mysteries. She’s not sure where it will lead; Cynnara is excited about turning the corner and allowing her life to be led to the fullest both professionally and personally.
Dawn Montgomery was introduced to reading by a grandfather with great character voices and a grandmother who showed her there were no limits to the imagination. Since then she was rarely without a book in hand. It wasn’t until she was stuck in a rut and unable to find anything she enjoyed reading that she decided to take a hand at writing. Since then she’s penned books she loves to read with characters who spark her imagination.
Diana Castilleja has more than a dozen ebooks currently to her credit. Her first print book released in 2008, and she has kept busy. She currently resides in central Texas with her husband and son. When not focusing her energy on her family and writing, she loves to travel and haunt bookstores. She's lived in several states across the south and midwest, as well as traveling to Mexico. Moving every year or changing schools from the fourth grade through her sophomore year taught her that reading was a fast escape. The freedom to read about anything and everything has since fueled her adult imagination. She also enjoys romance, horses, and yes, still loves to read. Right now, she's probably attacking her keyboard writing her next book. If she's not, she should be!
Jessica Freely writes passionate m/m romance with a dangerous edge. Her titles range from contemporary to paranormal to science fiction, but one thing they all have in common is the length to which her heroes will go to be together. An instructor in Seton Hill University's Writing Popular Fiction program, Jessica has also published science fiction and young adult titles under other pen names.
Jianne Carlo invites you to journey with her to meet alpha men and resilient women in exotic locales from every corner of the planet, and different periods. She has written and published more than twenty books, and the ideas keep-a-comin' fast and furious.
Kayelle Allen is the author of unstoppable heroes, Science Fiction Romance, and Fantasy. She's also the owner of The Author's Secret, a graphic design company helping authors promote books, the founder of Marketing for Romance Writers, and a blogging professional on Romance Lives Forever. She's a member of the Erotic Authors Association, and Banned Writers. Though busy, she says she still has time to eat and sleep, and no -- she doesn't do them at the same time. Usually.
Louisa Bacio is the author of five erotic novels, including the paranormal series The Vampire, The Witch and The Werewolf, the 1Night Stand A Date with Death and numerous steamy short stories, Louise Bacio enjoys soaking up the sun in Southern California, and spending time with her family. In addition to writing and editing, she teaches college courses in English, journalism, film studies and popular culture. She also volunteers with her local chapter, OCC/RWA.
Lynn Lorenz lives in Texas, where she’s a fan of all things Texan, like long horns, big hair, and cowboys in tight jeans. She’s never met a comma she didn’t like, and enjoys editing and brainstorming with other writers. Lynn spends most of her time writing about hot sex with even hotter heroes, plot twists, werewolves, and medieval swashbucklers. She’s currently at work on her latest book, making herself giggle and blush, and avoiding all the housework.
Savannah Chase writes erotica, and she writes romance. Whether you want sweaty sex or sweet romance, she’s written just the thing for you. She started putting pen to paper as a young schoolgirl. Music inspired her to write lyrics, which eventually turned into stories. Her stories have gotten better, longer, and so much more erotic as the years passed. She’s a hopeless romantic who believes that everyone has a soul mate. Savannah is a member of the Romance Writers of America, Toronto Romance Writers, and Erotic Authors Association. She’s currently published with multiple houses, and has won numerous awards for her books. Her current residence is in Canada.
Selena Illyria is author, part vampire, part pixie, and was born with a need to write and enable. Her imagination takes her into the paranormal, sci-fi and fantasy genres and all sorts of mischief. When not writing she enjoys catching up on her TBR pile, watching some of her favorite programs and listening to her favorite music as well as teasing people with posts on decadent food and plot bunnies.
Stephanie Haefner is a wife, mother of two, and contemporary romance novelist from Buffalo, NY. A member of Romance Writers of America and the Western New York Romance Writers subchapter, she loves creating sassy heroines and tossing them into sexy circumstances. When not writing, she celebrates her sassiness with dance and zumba classes, and her nerdiness with boybands and Disney World.
Tara Lain’s first erotic romance novel was published in January of 2011. She’s now on book 16. Her novels have garnered awards for Best Series of 2011, Best Contemporary Romance, and Tara has been named Best Writer of the Year in the LRC Awards. In her other job, Tara owns an advertising and public relations firm, and she carries her promotional instincts into her writing career as well. She lives with her soul-mate husband in Laguna Beach, California, a pretty seaside town where she sets a lot of her books. Passionate about diversity, justice, and new experiences, Tara says on her tombstone it will say “Yes!"
