About the author

Robin Van Auken, writing as Madeline Sloane, is an author with more than a dozen published books, including several contemporary romance novels. Robin lives in the highlands of Northcentral Pennsylvania, along a peaceful river, with her husband, Lance Van Auken. She is a full-time writer and part-time college instructor.

She and her husband enjoy traveling to the United Kingdom and Europe, and spend much of their time abroad in ruins, castles, cathedrals and museums. She particularly enjoys crypts with mummies, musty libraries and authentic pubs. In the United States., they bounce along the East Coast, traveling from New England to Florida to visit family and friends.

Robin’s books include elements of her passions: travel, boating, scuba diving, history and archaeology. The characters are generally from idyllic Eaton, a fictitious town in Pennsylvania she has invented, although most of her books also feature exciting and exotic cities the heroines (and their lovers) visit during the course of their romantic journey. 

She invites you to travel with the women and men of Eaton as they explore the world, and themselves, in the When Love Speaks contemporary  romance series.

Book 1
Erin Andersen specializes in motivation. When Stephen Spence misses one too many deadlines, the publisher sends Erin to salvage the book.
He blames writer’s block, but Erin thinks he’s narcissistic, lazy, and spending too much time partying at his beach house.
When Spence sails to the Florida Keys for some undeserved R&R, Erin tags along as first mate to avoid losing the contract. After a week at sea, her disdain gives way to desire and she discovers sexy Stephen Spence can focus – when he wants to. Worse, she finds that distraction is contagious.
Fun in the sun is fine, but Erin has a job to do. Her new plan is to isolate Spence at her family’s farm in Eaton, where she grew up, and where she can control the situation on her terms.
Or can she?
Erin’s reckless compromises prove costly as the six-figure book deal slips through her fingers. She must choose between her career and her foolish heart.
Whatever she decides, she might lose both. 

The first in a wonderful romance series, Return to Eaton: WHEN LOVE SPEAKS,  “Distracted” by Robin Van Auken, writing as Madeline Sloane, introduces readers to Eaton, a fictional, idyllic town tucked away in the mountains of Pennsylvania. 

Other books in the series are “East of Eaton" and "West Wind." The second series, “Secrets of Eaton” contains the romantic suspense novels “Consequence,” “Incandescent” and “Dead Line.” Coming up in "Mysteries of Eaton" are "Charnel House," "Well of the Dead" and "Skinterns."

Here’s what reviewers said about Robin Van Auken’s Women of Eaton trilogy, containing the novels Distracted, East of Eaton and West Wind:

5 out of 5 stars ~ Distracted, East of Eaton and West Wind: The Trilogy

“Distracted, East of Eaton and West Wind are filled with independent, strong, wonderful women. This series shows women the way they should be. Able to cope and function on their own, but increased when they add the right man to their life. Doing their job and raising their family the way everyone should, when these men happen into their world. Love comes without them realizing it but with all the bells and whistles.
I very highly recommend this series to everyone!! It's romantic, sweet, funny and will cause butterflies in your stomach. This is romance the way it should be written. Not about some woman who can't live life without a man, but a strong woman made stronger when you add the man she loves. It's a terrific series that I've read 3 times already. You will enjoy this and end with a smile.
