Award-winning author JENNIFER HAYWARD has been a fan of
romance and adventure since filching her sister’s
Harlequin Presents novels to escape her teenaged angst.
Jennifer penned her first romance at nineteen. When it was
rejected, she bristled at her mother’s suggestion that
she needed more life experience. She went on to complete a
journalism degree and intern as a sports broadcaster before
settling into a career in public relations. Years of working
alongside powerful, charismatic CEOs and traveling the world
provided perfect fodder for the arrogant alpha males she
loves to write, and free research on some of the
world’s most glamorous locales.
A suitable amount of life experience under her belt, she sat

Jennifer is the Romantic Times Magazine Reviewer’s Choice Best Harlequin Presents for 2014

which also received a Harlequin Junkie Top Pick award for
2014. She is also a New Jersey Romance Writers of America
Golden Leaf Contest finalist in the 2014 Short Contemporary
