When we hear the word SIREN, the first book we think of is THE SIREN by Tiffany Reisz. Why? Because Nora is the ultimate siren. She's the perfect combination of sexy, confident, dominant, submissive with a hint of sweet, you just have to dig deep ;)

Cheryl Holt is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of thirty-one novels.
She's also a lawyer and mom, and at age 40, with two babies at home, she started a new career as a commercial fiction writer. She'd hoped to be a suspense novelist, but couldn't sell any of her manuscripts, so she ended up taking a detour into romance, where she was stunned to discover that she has an incredible knack for writing some of the world's greatest love stories.
Her books have been released to wide acclaim, and she has won or been nominated for many national awards. She is particularly proud to have been named "Best Storyteller of the Year," by the trade magazine, Romantic Times BOOK Reviews.
Her hot, sexy, dramatic stories of passion and illicit love have captivated fans around the world, and she's celebrated as the Queen of Erotic Romance, which is currently the fastest selling subgenre of women's fiction. Due to the ferociousness of some of her characters, she's also known as the International Queen of Villains.
She received degrees in music, languages, and education, from South Dakota State University, and her juris doctorate was obtained at the University of Wyoming. Her colorful and chaotic employment history includes such variety as public school teacher, cook, bartender, lobbyist, and political activist. She also did brief stints in metro-Denver as a deputy district attorney and administrative law judge.

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 her 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 herself some kickass critique partners, honed her craft, and continued submitting.
And eventually sold a short story, then a novella, then a novel, and now a series.
Today, she juggles work, home life, and writing. It's not always easy, but hey, who said life was easy?
In her downtime, which isn't often, you can find her playing 'Just Dance' with her kids or trying to catch up on her never-ending to-be-read list. She also loves Zumba, and refuses to admit she looks more like Animal doing his Muppet flail than a sensual Latin dancer.

Amara’s first foray into writing romance was in high school, when she wrote a variety of “meet-cute” scenarios about her best friends. One would run into her true love while horseback riding through the French countryside. Another would meet her match auditioning on Broadway.
It’s been a long time since those little snippets, which have probably disintegrated in a landfill somewhere, but Amara has never stopped believing in true love, first kisses, and happily ever afters.
And so, when she’s not grading papers and teaching classes on literature and composition, she delves into Victorian history to weave stories of love and trust set in a world that faced tremendous shifts in men’s and women’s roles, economics, science, medicine, law, politics, technology...you name it, it was changing…yet love was, and is, a human constant. And love is always worth celebrating.

Now, living in northwest Arkansas, she’s given up wrangling cattle and exotic birds to wrangle her muses, a malti-poo and a yorkie. When she’s not at her computer, she’s traveling, out snow skiing, boating, or riding her four-wheeler, dreaming up new stories.
