Kate Bateman

KATE BATEMAN (also writing as K.C. Bateman) wrote her first historical romance in response to a $1 bet with her husband who rashly claimed she’d ‘never finish the thing.’ She gleefully proved him wrong with a historical set in the Italian Renaissance. Since then, her Bow Street Bachelors, Ruthless Rivals, and Her Majesty’s Rebels trilogies (St. Martin’s Press) have continued her trademark of feisty, intelligent heroines, wickedly inappropriate banter, and heroes you want to alternately strangle and kiss.

When not traveling to exotic locations ‘for research’, Kate leads a double life as a fine art appraiser and on-screen antiques ‘expert’ for several TV shows in the UK. She splits her time between Illinois and her native England and writes despite three inexhaustible children and a husband who has flatly refused to read any of her books ‘unless she hits the NY Times Bestseller list.’ It is – naturally – her fervent desire to force the semi-illiterate, number-loving cynic to do so. He still owes her that dollar.

Kate loves to hear from readers and writers alike. Contact her on Twitter @katebateman, Facebook, and even via her website at

Lynne Connolly

LYNNE CONNOLLY grew up in England and fell in love with history at an early age. She got her degrees at Manchester University before going to work as a market research manager. Such fun. History has been a constant. Stately homes, museums, art galleries – she’s there five minutes before they open. She adores travelling, and there’s still a lot of world to see.

None of this qualified her to write, although she did write stories for her own amusement. In fact she’s always written, and her first story was a continuation of Sir Gawain And The Green Knight at the age of seven!  She married a special needs teacher who she’s very proud of, and became a stay at home mum. While she loves her kids, overdosing on Thomas the Tank Engine stories drove her to create a series of stories of her own. When she submitted them to a publisher, to her shock, they liked them and a new career was born. That series became the Richard and Rose series. Since then, she’s written historical romance series set in her beloved Georgian era, some contemporaries and some paranormal romances. The Emperors of London did really well, and after a spin-off series, she’s writing a whole new romance series about detectives in Georgian England. They’re all pretty steamy. She’s helped in her endeavours by a series of muses, or rather, mewses. The current mews is a daft ragdoll called Frankie.

Renee Ann Miller

USA Today bestselling author RENEE ANN MILLER writes sexy, humorous, and sometimes dark, historical romances. She penned her first book at the tender age of seven and even drew the impressive stick figures—though clearly those characters weren’t as spicy as the ones she writes now. Her debut novel, Never Dare a Wicked Earl, was a 2015 finalist in the Golden Heart Contest® from Romance Writers of America®, and The Impetuous Miss Milton was also a Golden Heart finalist® the following year.

Renee loves romantic stories, excessive amounts of chocolate, and gardening. She lives in the Northeast with her wonderful husband. Though she grew up in a household of hockey fans, her favorite sport is football. Renee swears it has nothing to do with watching muscled men run around in tight pants, but that’s debatable. You can find out more about Renee and the stories she’s working on at

Danica Winters

DANICA WINTERS is a Publishers Weekly, Walmart, and Amazon bestselling author who has won multiple awards for writing books that grip readers with their ability to drive emotion through suspense and occasionally a touch of magic. Her books have won numerous awards, but she says that her greatest joy is hearing that the worlds she creates have helped to provide escapes for those who need it most.

In addition to her writing, she spends a great deal of her time mentoring up-and-coming authors in every genre from children’s fiction to science fiction. Books are her passion and her life.  When she’s not working, she can be found in the wilds of Montana with her husband and two young children (who love books just as much as her). Her daughter often helps her handle her fan mail.

When Danica isn’t reading, writing, or mentoring, she tries to master crafts that seem easy to others but often become the bane of her existence. (She swears she will never again pick up a knitting needle.) Currently, she is crocheting one lop-sided blanket. Please send help.
