Adventure; romance; spunky, kick-ass heroines; hunky, take-charge heroes; a dash of humor… Elizabeth Allyn-Dean writes paranormal romance, urban fantasy, and fantasy stories that blend these elements to get to a happily ever after. From the first time she lost herself in a fantasy novel in her self-built treehouse, Elizabeth knew she wanted to be an author. After a detour into the world of archaeology, she returned to her true love--writing. Elizabeth still enjoys losing herself in a good book, as well as exploring her artistic side, gardening, beachcombing for interesting treasures, indulging her inner nerd, and playing with her two dogs and cats. For the last twenty years, she has called Alaska home, enjoying the adventures, gorgeous scenery, and fascinating people and places it offers. You can follow Elizabeth at:
Jennifer Bernard is a USA Today bestselling author of contemporary romance. Her books have been called “an irresistible reading experience” full of “quick wit and sizzling love scenes.” A graduate of Harvard and former news promo producer, she left big city life in Los Angeles for true love in Alaska, where she now lives with her husband and stepdaughters. She still hasn’t adjusted to the cold, so most often she can be found cuddling with her laptop and a cup of tea. No stranger to book success, she also writes erotic novellas under a naughty secret name that she’s happy to share with the curious.
Sara Blackard has been a writer since she was able to hold a pencil. When she’s not crafting wild adventures and sweet romances, she’s homeschooling her five children, keeping their off-grid house running, or enjoying the Alaskan lifestyle she and her husband love.

Cheryl is an International Beauty Queen, a former singer/songwriter, and one of Murfreesboro, Tennessee’s 15 Most Beautiful People (2009). She was raised in a suburb just outside Washington, D.C. She is the youngest of seventeen children and credits her artistic background to her sister Linda, who taught her to read at the age of three! Her sister was set to graduate from The Duke Ellington School For The Arts and began taking Cheryl with her during her final two months of school. Cheryl was immersed in artistic and academic activities every Friday and she was only four years old when she sat in on a senior English literature class with her sister. The teacher’s name was Ms. Brown and she changed Cheryl's life forever when she asked her to read aloud to the class, "The Road Not Taken", by Robert Frost. Ten years later, Cheryl attended Duke Ellington as a Violin Major/Piano Minor and Ms. Brown was her Freshman English teacher and Ms. Matthews was her violin teacher.
Now, after a long absence, Cheryl has finally returned to her true first love. The written word. She completed her first novel, a contemporary multi-cultural, in 2016. Cheryl now resides in majestic Alaska with her sexy husband. He is her knight in shining armor and the inspiration behind her novels! Their four children are in college.

Karen Kiely is a lifelong Alaskan who has never lived in an igloo and doesn’t know anyone who has. Her current project started out as a standalone contemporary romance but has become a series due to minor characters gone rogue. Once upon a time, Karen’s alter-ego was paid for the privilege of selecting all fiction for her public library. In her spare moments, she reads, travels, and hopes the Chicago White Sox will win another World Series in her lifetime.

Tamsin Ley builds worlds full of sexy heroes who don’t know they need a mate - that is, until they meet the woman they can’t resist. The romance is sizzling hot, a surprise twist waits around every corner, and the stories will never leave you hanging (although you may still crave more!).

Hi, my name is Maxine Mansfield and I write fantasy erotic romances for the scarlet line of THE WILD ROSE PRESS. I love this far northern state of Alaska where the summer days are long and the winter nights even longer. I have one very special man, his three equally special children, and our five delightful grandchildren in my life. Not to mention a very bossy African Grey parrot named Gabriel. Oh, and Gnomes! Many, many gnomes.
I was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, but knew Alaska would be my heart's home as soon as I stepped off the plane way back in the early 1980's. Living in Alaska is not for everyone, but it is definitely for me! A pilot myself, many of my stories involve aviation, strong female characters and the cultures and legends of my wild, untamed Alaska. I write romantic suspense, paranormal romance and historical romance and enjoy weaving intricate plots with current events or cultural legends or myths. When I'm not writing, I can be found teaching women's self-defense seminars and martial arts, scuba diving in tropical locales, flying around the country or just getting away to some unique paradise with my hubby. You can find my books at your favorite digital provider. Both digital downloads and, for the more traditional reader, hard copies are always available. Take a sneak peak, or read the first chapter of all of my novels on my website at:

I am an author of feel-good love stories that are full of sweet moments and happily-ever-afters. I believe the best time to fall in love is during the holidays, preferably over a cup of warm tea or a delicious Vegan pastry - two things I can't get enough of. A free spirit, I love to travel and have a soft spot for Bar Harbor, Maine, though I grew up at home in the South. I am married to my childhood sweetheart and bake as often as I can for my husband, son, and pets - especially my golden retriever, Finn, who has a tendency to show up in my stories (and her Instagram!) I am represented by Gandolfo Helin & Fountain Literary Management and supported by Smith Publicity. I am also a bestselling award-winning author and editor of dark fantasy and horror under the name Lindy Ryan. I am a member of the Romance Writers of America (RWA) and Romantic Novelist Association (RNA).
