Colleen Collins tried (survived?) a variety of careers (including potato chip inspector, AI laboratory manager, Hollywood script girl) before finally discovering what she loves: writing romance novels. She sold her first book RIGHT CHEST, WRONG NAME to Harlequin in '97 for their (then) Love & Laughter line. Since then, she's had over a dozen more novels published for Harlequin's Duets, Temptation, and Flipside lines (plus one book, a paranormal romance thriller for Dorchester, w/a Cassandra Collins). Colleen lives in Denver with a growing menagerie of animals and is currently working on her next book. To read more about her upcoming releases, and to enter her contests, go to

Sylvia Day is a wife and mother of two from Southern California. She is a former Russian linguist for the U.S. Army Military Intelligence. After deciding at the age of twelve that she wanted to be a romance novelist, she waited until years later to begin her first novel. Sylvia believes a great love story knows no time or location boundaries. She writes romances in all sub-genres: historical, Regency, romantica, paranormal, and contemporary. Visit Sylvia and check out her new website at

Growing up Claudia Dain would often escape to her ivory tower, what her father called it, and lose herself in words. In reality it was her bedroom where she was transported to other worlds. Her love of reading gave Claudia a desire to put pen to paper herself. Thinking she could never make it in the world of writing Claudia took up another profession only to be reminded by her husband years later how she loved to write. She's now glad he was persistant and kept reminding her of her dream. It paid off. Visit Claudia at her new website at
