About the author

C.K. O'Connor is a born and raised Floridian who loves to travel but never forgets where her roots are. She married her high school sweetheart and has three kids and one rescue dog she probably loves more than her kids. She love's all things Ireland and has been lucky enough to visit twice. Her dream is to watch a baseball game in every MLB stadium in the country.

Basking along the beaches of Central Florida, R. C. Wynne is a romantic at heart.  R.C. loves writing heart-throbbing stories with strong, but sassy heroines, hunky heroes who love their women to have an inner fire, plenty of sexy times to melt your panties and keep your heart racing, romantic happily-ever-afters, and an abundance of emotions to keep you laughing, crying, and even sometimes screaming.

In 2008, Lia Davis ventured into the world of writing and publishing and never looked back. She has published more than twenty books, including the bestselling A Tiger’s Claim, book one in her fan favorite Ashwood Falls series. Her novels feature compassionate yet strong alpha heroes who know how to please their women and her leading ladies are each strong in their own way. No matter what obstacle she throws at them, they come out better in the end.

USA Today bestselling author Kerry Adrienne loves history, science, music and art. She’s a mom to three daughters and many cats. She loves live music and traveling most anywhere.

Born in Ontario, Canada, Mireille Chester now resides in the beautiful province of Saskatchewan. Wife, mother, author, woods sprite, food lover; she has many hats she loves to fill. A trucker’s wife, she is mom to an emo skater princess, a gaming enthusiast, and a fisherman with cerebral palsy, epilepsy, and autism.

Born and raised a Jersey girl with easy access to NYC, I was never short on ideas for stories. I started writing when I was 11, and my passion for creating worlds exploded from that point on. Romance writing came later, since kissing gave you cooties at 11, but when it did, I embraced it. Since then, all of my heroes and heroines find their happily ever after, even if it takes a good fight, or ten, to get there.

Linzi Baxter lives in Orlando, Florida with her husband and lazy basset hound. She started writing when voices inside her head wouldn’t stop talking until the story was told. When not at work as an IT Manager, Linzi enjoys writing action-packed romances that will take you to the edge of your seat.

Author of Dark Romance and Paranormal Romance! Ashley married her high school sweetheart. She's the Mama of two children, one pitbull, and a turtle. In her spare time, she loves to read, enjoy a cocktail, and watch horror movies. She lives in a small town in South Carolina.

Lori Joseph is a proud Hufflepuff, a ferocious book dragon, and an admitted candy addict. She has always been an avid reader with a wild imagination but it wasn't until she started attending book conventions that she caught the writing bug. And what a bug it is!

Urban fantasy and paranormal romance author Mia Ellas was always accused of living in her own world so she decided to put it to paper. She loves things that go bump in the night so she decided to share her love with her readers.

Currently living in South Carolina, Roxanne enjoys spending time with her family. Books are her escape from a house full of boys. When nerf wars are at a high she can escape into her own little corner to create an escape for others.

Marissa discovered her love for reading and writing at a young age. She distinctly recalls her third-grade teacher refusing to acknowledge “what if” questions and unintentionally inspiring her to always ask them anyways. Marissa is particularly fond of speculative fiction and exploring unique character perspectives.

Kerry Evelyn is the author of the Crane’s Cove series, #sweetresortromance set in Coastal Maine, a Guest Author for the Cat's Paw Cove series, and several short stories that span multiple genres. A native of the Massachusetts SouthCoast, she changed her latitude and now calls the Orlando area home. Kerry loves God, books, cats, traveling, taking selfies, sweet drinks, and escaping into her imagination.

Time traveling adventurer, award-winning multi-genre author, Pamela Ackerson was born and raised in Newport, RI where history is a way of life. She lives on the Space Coast of Florida where everyone is encouraged to reach for the stars! When it's time to runaway, she's a hop, skip, and jump from Disney World and fun-filled imagination and fantasy

Cherron Riser is a multi-genre author that writes in romance, paranormal, fantasy, and sci-fi for both adults and young adults. When not hard at work on her next novel, she can be found with a good read in hand or trying to convince her puppy that she is in fact a dog and not a person. She is a wife and mother to two girls. Her family is unabashedly geeky and enjoys sharing a good board game or role-playing game.

Amy Stephens is a new adult/contemporary romance author. Born and raised in Alabama, she lives just minutes from the beautiful gulf coast beaches.

When she’s not busy writing, you’ll find her reading, going on cruises with her husband, or taking a road trip for a girl’s weekend getaway. She’s a huge sports fan, but she prefers watching the games at home where she can curl up on the couch with her three cats.

Jennifer Wedmore is a native of Florida, a wife, mom of three and now an author. Her journey in writing started with a bit of good-natured peer pressure. Growing up her goal was to be known as eccentric and she hopes that is evident in her stories. Why choose one genre when she can play in several?

I never planned on being a writer, as a child my dream was to grow up and be an eccentric recluse. (If I'm honest, that's still my goal.) I write the stories that I need to write to help exercise my personal demons, to do something different and to have fun. If people can relate to them, it makes everything worth it.

JC Layne is an avid music fan, reader and geek. JC combines her love and knowledge of music with her love of fiction in her novels. By day, JC holds a technical job in a large company. Writing is the outlet that balances out her techie left side brain and creative right side brain...and hopefully keeps her sane.

I write steamy contemporary romance novels, novellas, and short stories. My female leads are sassy and strong with a lot of spunk and drive for success. Their sensitive alpha male counterparts better be up to the challenge if they want to win their hearts.

Laynie Bynum is a Young Adult author from Birmingham, Alabama who writes everything from Contemporary Romance to Urban Fantasy. She is inspired by the works of her favorite authors including Sarah Dessen, John Green, Cassandra Clare, and Neil Gaiman.

When she isn't crafting characters who reflect her never-ending wanderlust and love of music, she is the one of the co-founders of Sword and Silk Books and the Vice President of Communications for the Young Adult chapter of Romance Writers of America

Lynne St. James is an Amazon bestselling author. She’s a member of NINC! and the Florida Star Fiction Writers. From the moment she wrote her first story and read it to the neighborhood kids, she was hooked on writing. Lynne’s dream of being published came true in 2012.

Kimberley O’Malley is a transplant to Charlotte, North Carolina from the frozen North. She is learning to say y’all but draws the line at sweet tea. Sarcasm is an art form in her world. When not writing, she is a full-time nurse and part-time soccer Mom, but not necessarily in that order. She shares her life with an amazing husband of more than twenty-five years, two teenagers, and two very sweet Shetland Sheepdogs, Molly and Callie.

International bestselling author, Anna Kristell, is a small town gal from southern Indiana with a passion for romance. She has lived in Ohio, Oklahoma, Texas, and now resides in Florida with her husband, where she enjoys sunshine and beaches.

An avid romance reader since her teen years, it has always been her dream to create love stories of her own.

I’m a Southern princess--haha--nah! I am Southern, but I came from the wrong side of the tracks in a small Alabama town, just 30 minutes from the Florida state line. I have a dirty mind and I’m not afraid to use it.
