CHRISTI CALDWELL blames Judith McNaught’s “Whitney, My Love!” for luring her into the enchanting world of historical romance. And she has never looked back. While sitting in her apartment in graduate school at the University of Connecticut, Christi decided to set aside her notes and pick up her laptop to try her hand at romance. She believes the most perfect heroes and heroines have imperfections, and she rather enjoys torturing them before crafting them a well deserved happily ever after! Christi divides her time between Connecticut and North Carolina where she spends her time writing her own enchanting historical romances, teaching history, and being a full-time wife and mother!



As a child, JANE CHARLES would more likely be found outside with a baseball than a book in her hand. In fact, Jane hated reading until she was sixteen. Out of boredom on a long road trip she borrowed her older sister’s historical romance and fell in love with reading and her love for them never died. Writing romance soon became a passion as well, which has been fully supported by her awesome husband, children and three cats.




AMY DE TREMPE still believes in magic. The magic of love, the magic of fairytales, the magic of make-believe, the magic of childhood and the magic of faith. When she was a little girl she loved to play make-believe. Into adulthood this continued except the stories remained in her mind until one day she decided to put them to paper. She is lucky enough to be married to a wonderfully supportive man and has been blessed the three fantastic children.



SAMANTHA GRACE is the author of several Regency romance novels. Publisher's Weekly describes her stories as "fresh and romantic" with subtle humor and charm. She writes what she enjoys reading: romantic comedies about family, friendship, and flawed characters who learn how to love deeply.

Samantha is a part-time hospice social worker, moonlighting author, and full time wife and mom. She enjoys life in the Midwest with her husband, two witty kids, and a multitude of characters that spring from her imagination.




SUZANNE JOHNSON has lived in five states, but still calls New Orleans home. She currently lives in Alabama with two aging dogs named after professional wrestlers (it was a phase), and has a no-longer-secret passion for reality TV. (Wanted: One ice road trucker who also rescues gators.) She writes the Sentinels of New Orleans urban fantasy series for Tor Books and, as Susannah Sandlin, the Penton Legacy / Omega Force paranormal romantic thrillers for Montlake Romance.



JULIE JOHNSTONE is a published author of contemporary short stories and writer of unconventional Regency romances where the rule is—there are no rules. Julie spends her days juggling her love of writing with her love of her two precious children, her overworked lawyer husband and her wandering cat.

KAT LATHAM is best known for her London Legends series about the world's hottest rugby team. She’s a California girl who moved to Europe the day after graduating from UCLA, ditching her tank tops for raincoats. She taught English in Prague and worked as an editor in London before she and her British husband moved to the Netherlands. They now have a baby, who will probably speak Dutch before Kat does.

Kat’s other career involves writing and editing for charities, and she’s traveled to Kenya, Ethiopia and India to meet heroic people helping their communities survive disasters. You can usually find Kat on her blog, Twitter, Facebook and Goodreads. She hopes you’ll hang out with her there!


JENNIFER LOHMANN is a Rocky Mountain girl at heart, having grown up in southern Idaho and Salt Lake City. When she’s not writing or working as a public librarian, she wrangles two cats and a flock of backyard chickens; the dog is better behaved. She lives in Durham, North Carolina.
