About Kieran Kramer:
Double Rita®-finalist and USA Today bestseller Kieran Kramer writes Regency historical romances and now contemporary romance for St. Martin’s Press. The Earl is Mine, the second in her House of Brady series, is her latest release. Say Yes to the Duke premiers in August 2013. Sweet Talk Me, set in present-day South Carolina, comes out in March 2014.
A former CIA employee, journalist, and English teacher, Kieran’s also a game show veteran, karaoke enthusiast, and general adventurer. She lives where she grew up—in the Lowcountry of South Carolina—with her Naval Reserve commander husband and their three children.
About Miranda Neville:
Miranda grew up in southwest England. During her misspent youth she devoured the works of Georgette Heyer, Jean Plaidy and any other historical novels she could lay hands on. As a result she attended the University of Oxford to study history, ignoring all hints that economics might be a more practical subject. Miranda spent several years writing catalogues of rare books and original letters and manuscripts for Sotheby’s auction house in London and New York.
Miranda now lives in Vermont where she enjoys skiing and writing romances set in Regency England where it hardly ever snows.
About Katharine Ashe:
Katharine Ashe is the award-winning, best-selling author of nine lush, sweeping historical romances set in the English Regency era. Her latest novel, I Married the Duke, is the first in her new Prince Catchers series and features—you guessed it—a true hero.
About Theresa Romain:
Historical romance author Theresa Romain pursued an impractical education that allowed her to read everything she could get her hands on. She then worked for universities and libraries, where she got to read even more. Eventually she started writing, too. She lives with her family in the Midwest.
About Erin Knightley:
Despite being an avid reader and closet writer her whole life, Erin Knightley decided to pursue a sensible career in science. It was only after earning her B.S. and working in the field for years that she realized doing the sensible thing wasn't any fun at all. Following her dreams, Erin left her practical side behind and now spends her days writing. Together with her tall, dark, and handsome husband and their three spoiled mutts, she is living her own Happily Ever After in North Carolina.
About Shana Galen:
Shana Galen is the bestselling author of fast-paced adventurous Regency historicals, including the RT Reviewers’ Choice The Making of a Gentleman. Her books are published all over the world and have been featured in the Rhapsody and Doubleday Book Clubs. She taught English at the middle and high school level off and on for eleven years. Most of those years were spent working in Houston's inner city. Now she writes full time. She’s happily married and has a daughter who is most definitely a romance heroine in the making.
