MADELINE IVA I write fantasy, paranormal, and contemporary romances about brooding heroes, smart women, and feisty sex. Check out my novella ‘Sexsomnia‘ in our anthology, THE LADY SMUT BOOK OF DARK DESIRES. I’m a member of RWA, and Washington Romance Writers. I started a day of romance panels at Virginia Festival of the Book. Find out more about me by visiting my website, or following me on Twitter @madelineiva and friending me on facebook.
ELIZABETH SHORE I’ve always loved erotic contemporary and historical romance. The strong-willed ladies who defy conventional restrictions and have the kind of sex and relationships they want (rather than what society/family dictates) are endlessly appealing to read — and to write. I’ve written several historicals and have had two published with Kensington (under the pen name Liz Madison) and one soon to be released from the Wild Rose Press called Desire Rising. I’ve also taken the contemporary erotic romance world for a spin. Hot Bayou Nights published by the Wild Rose Press is set in the Louisiana bayou at a king cobra research facility. It’s a m/f sizzler chock full of sultry, steamy deliciousness. I’m a member of RWA and the President of my local chapter, Hudson Valley Romance.

KIERSTEN HALLIE KRUM writes romantic suspense stories about quick-witted, self-rescuing heroines and the clever, capable heroes who fall for them. OK, actually, she writes about deeply flawed women with massive trust issues who have a thing for bad boys and a knack for getting into trouble. Commune with her on Facebook. Obsess with her on Twitter. Check out her author blog here.
ALEXA DAY writes interracial erotica and erotic romance with heroines who are anything but innocent. A former bartender and recovering attorney, she was born in Brooklyn and raised in the New South. She likes her romances with just a touch of the inappropriate, and she hesitates to admit that she hasn’t read that much Jane Austen. Her literary mission is to stimulate the intellect and libido of her readers with interracial romances set in each of romance subgenres. You can keep up with her on Facebook, watch TV with her via Twitter and follow her blog at www.alexajday.com.
ELIZABETH SAFLEUR writes erotic romance author and dreams of dumping her public relations career. In the meantime, she writes, tweets and posts under a pseudonym since her business clients might be shocked at her new career choice – or fear they provide inspiration. (She has sworn secrecy.) She wrote the Elite Doms of Washington contemporary erotic romance series after a thirty-year career serving D.C. clients. Today Elizabeth shares twenty-eight, wildlife-filled acres in Virginia with her husband and furry child, the real Dom in the family. Find her daily hunk-a-luscious-ness pictures on Facebook. Or, dream with her on Pinterest.

ISABELLE DRAKE got her start writing confession stories for pulp magazines like True Confessions and True Love. Since publishing those first few stories she has written in many genres, but tends to write about everyday people in extraordinary situations. When away from her keyboard, she likes watching classic horror films, especially Hammer films such as the Karnstein Trilogy, and reading (of course). An avid traveler, she’ll go just about anywhere–at least once–to meet people and get story ideas.
