Katherine Bone

In the author's own words: "I'm addicted to history and romance! Raised an Army brat, I had the great fortune to marry an officer and travel the world. After raising four children and putting down roots, the muse came calling with abandon, complete with swashbuckling adventure and mayhem. And as I anticipate my debut release, my greatest hope is that my stories resonate with you, dear reader." Read more about Cupid's Café: Katherine Bone

Allison Brennan

New York Times and USA Today bestseller Allison Brennan is the author of twenty novels and several short stories. A former consultant in the California State Legislature, she lives in Northern California with her husband Dan and their five children.

Crime fiction, mysteries, and romantic suspense have always been Allison's favorites, so it's no surprise that her romantic thrillers have a dark suspense edge. Reviewers have called her books "terrifying," "mesmerizing," "fast-paced," "pulse-pounding," "wonderfully complex," "layered," and "a master of suspense - tops in the genre." Lee Child called LOVE ME TO DEATH, "A world-class nail-biter" and Lisa Gardner says, "Brennan knows how to deliver." Read more about Cupid's Café: Allison Brennan

Christy Reece

Growing up in a tiny community in Alabama boasting only one stop sign and a gas station gave Christy ample opportunity to create daring adventures in her head. When she wasn't thinking of her story characters, Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys kept her entertained and out of trouble. Later came the chills of Stephen King and the thrills of John Grisham, but the romance genre always held a strong place in her heart.

Christy's award winning Last Chance Rescue series consists of nine books and features strong, alpha males, smart, courageous women, plenty of steam, action adventure, and always a happy ending. Christy is currently writing an LCR novella, CHANCES ARE, that she plans to release at the end of 2012.

A member of Romance Writers of America and International Thriller Writers, Christy lives in Alabama with her husband and pets. Read more about Cupid's Café: Christy Reece

Kat Martin

Currently living in Missoula, Montana, Kat is the New York Times bestselling author of over fifty Historical and Contemporary Romance Suspense novels.  Before she started writing in 1985, Kat was a real estate broker.  During that time, she met her husband, Larry Jay Martin, author of more than twenty books, both westerns and mysteries.  Kat is a graduate of the University of California at Santa Barbara, where she majored in Anthropology and also studied History. 

"I've always loved books.  I was an avid reader, with any number of my own stories rolling around in my head.  Writing them down seemed a logical step."

"I love anything old," Kat says.  "I love to travel and especially like to visit the places where my books are set.  My husband and I often stay in out-of-the-way inns and houses built in times past.  It's fun and it gives a wonderful sense of a by-gone era."

 Kat began with historical romance and is currently writing romantic suspense.   She is published in twenty foreign countries. Read more about Cupid's Café: Kat Martin
