by Rebecca Brooks I love taking characters out of their elements and throwing them into unfamiliar situations. It gives them the chance to experience something new and discover aspects of themselves they never knew existed. But then I inevitably wind up with a problem. If the hero and heroine have stepped out of their lives… Read More
Rebecca Brooks lives in New York City in an apartment filled
with books. She received a PhD in English but decided it was
more fun to write books than write about them. She has backpacked alone through India and Brazil, traveled
by cargo boat down the Amazon River, climbed Mt.
Kilimanjaro, explored ice caves in Peru, trekked to the
source of the Ganges, and sunbathed in Burma, but she always
likes coming home to a cold beer and her hot husband in the
Bronx. She likes outdoorsy guys with both muscle and heart and
independent women ready to try something new.
Celebrating the new release of Hidden Away with author Jennie Marts Everybody makes mistakes. We’ve all done it, and we’ve all had someone that made a mistake that may have hurt us. It’s what makes us human. That’s why I love second chance stories. Especially second chance romances. I love a good story where two… Read More

by Alyssa Goodnight My fourth book comes out this week, and this one, like the others, doesn’t take itself too seriously. Just to clarify, that was a conscious decision on my part and absolutely on purpose. I’ve gotten some early reviews on this book, and I’m already seeing signs that some will fall into a… Read More
Hello everyone! I’m Abby Niles. My book, WINNING LOVE, released last week with Entangled Select. The theme throughout the book is how two people deal with loss in two completely different ways. My hero, Mac “The Snake” Hannon, has closed himself off from the world. He beats the crap out of his opponents in the… Read More
Ever since Abby Niles picked up her first Sweet Valley High book in sixth grade and fell in love with Elizabeth and Todd, she’s been hooked on romance. By the time she reached high school, she was devouring meatier romances with pirates, cowboys and knights. She never imagined that those years of reading would one day lead to becoming a published author. In her late twenties, after having twins and becoming a stay-at-home mom, she started doodling stories to keep her sanity. Next thing she knew, she was actually submitting to publishing houses. And was immediately rejected. That didn’t stop her though. She found some kickass critique partners, honed her craft, and continued submitting. And eventually sold. Today, she is a full-time writer and lives with her two kids in North Carolina.
Abby is the author of the contemporary MMA romance series Love to the Extreme. The first two books, Extreme Love and Fighting Love, released in 2013. The third book, Winning Love, will release on August 26th, 2014. She is also the author of the dark paranormal romance series The Awakening: Aidan, The Awakening: Liam, and The Awakening: Britton. Both series are with Entangled Publishing. Defying Convention, with Carina Press, is a geeky romantic comedy held at a Sci-fi convention, where Live Action Role Players (LARPers) set out to teach their favorite author a lesson.
She is represented by Maureen Walters at Curtis Brown, LTD.
