Award-Winning Romance from USA Today Bestselling Author Dani Collins!
Winner of 2013 Reviewer's Choice Award from Romantic Times Book Reviews
Before making my first sale to Harlequin Mills & Boon in 2012, I spent two decades writing and submitting to every publisher with a transom while holding down a day job and raising a family with my high school sweet heart. Since then, I've gone to contract on over thirty books.
While Harlequin Presents remains my first love, I also write romantic comedy, medieval fantasy romance, erotic romance, and small town contemporary romance for Tule Publishing's Montana Born. In fact, I write just about anything, so long as it's romance. P.S. I'm also Canadian.

Mary E. Thompson grew up loving to read, like a good little girl. Many nights she would fall asleep with the flashlight still turned on as she hid under the covers trying to finish the last few pages of a book. As an adult, the light from her ereader means she doesn't need a flashlight, but she still stays up way too late to finish a book.
When Mary's not reading she's playing with her two kids or living out her own romance novel with her hubby. She has a weakness for chocolate, especially when it's paired with peanut butter, and has been known to have a bad day just because there's no chocolate in the house.
Mary grew up in Buffalo, New York and swears she's the only local to never ski or snowboard. Soccer was always her sport, with a couple adventures white water rafting and skydiving to keep things interesting. Mary moved to South Carolina for college but missed Buffalo every day. Yeah she thinks she's crazy, too. She somehow convinced her South Carolina born and bred hubby to return to Buffalo to raise the kids and live out their lives. He’s still not sure what he was thinking.
Alyssa Wright has one goal before she leaves for college. She refuses to go carrying her v-card. She just has to find someone to give it to in the next six weeks.
When she runs into Jake Monroe, almost literally, she knows he's different. She thinks about him constantly, and not in the way she's thought about any other guy.
Between his new job and helping his best friend's widow, Jake doesn't have time for romance. But there's something about Alyssa he can't resist. He's torn between the light Alyssa brings to his world and the promise he made to his best friend.
What they want doesn't matter. There's a ticking clock, counting down the days until Alyssa leaves. Maybe for good.
She never thought she'd go back...
Fifteen years was a long time to be away, but not nearly long enough when Alyssa Morgan had nothing to show for her time. Unless you'd count three failed marriages, two parents she barely spoke to, one disastrous attempt at a college degree, and zero friends to count on.
He found himself at Amavita...
Jake Monroe thought about leaving Amavita Estates many times after Alyssa left him. Over the years, her family became his family. They accepted him. Loved him. Healed him. Her family was the family he never had, and without her around to remind him otherwise, he could pretend he was one of them.
Until she walked back into his world looking nothing like the girl he used to know.
Can their differences bring them together again?
Alyssa knows she needs to stay away from Jake. Jake wants nothing to do with her. But the chemistry that drew them together fifteen years ago is stronger than they are.
She has a secret...
Andie Young has always been good at hiding who she really is. Her emotions and truths have stayed buried beneath the sexy clothes, makeup, and endless amber waves that are her signature look. She had to do something to get attention. Between her three brothers and five cousins, she grew up feeling like the invisible one. So she changed that.
He's loved her forever...
Cody Powell has been attracted to Andie since the summer she turned seventeen. Off limits back then, and involved with one guy or another since, Cody has kept his adoration secret from her. He spent fifteen years avoiding Andie, and stammering like a fool when he was face to face with her.
Cody spends weeks fixing up her house and falling harder for her with each passing day. He knows she'd never be interested in a country boy like him, but seeing her dating other guys has finally taken its toll. Cody doesn't think he can handle it any longer.
They both want someone to share their lives with...
Is she strong enough to take a chance with Cody? Or will he finish her house and leave before she gets the chance to tell him how she feels?
When tragedy strikes...
Henry Wilson has been a strong and steady force for his family for years. When death steals one of them, Henry's ability to keep himself together is tested. Even surrounded by people, he's never had anyone to lean on. Not since he made the biggest mistake of his life and told his best friend he was in love with her.
Right before she disappeared from his life for good.
And the chips are down...
Cynthia Hill is inching closer and closer to the life she always feared. Still single, and now jobless, she's living back at home with her mom. It isn't as bad as she thought it would be, which scares her more than the way she thinks about her former best friend.
All they have is each other...
Henry knows getting involved with Cynthia won't lead to anything but pain. She'll go back to her life, and he'll be left to deal with one more heartbreak. One he isn't sure he'll survive.
His life was good...
Zach Bennett was content to go to work, hang out with his family and friends, and entertain a woman once in a while. As his family found love all around him, he was content to stay single. Unattached. Happy.
Besides, he had enough to worry about with a new chef breathing down his neck for his job.
She faced the truth every day...
Gianna Brooks always wanted to work with people. She saw enough growing up to know kids need all the help they can get. They deserved to be safe. Loved. Happy.
Which is why she's determined to get her new client into a forever home.
But the truth isn't always good...
The last thing Zach needs is a little girl showing up on his doorstep claiming she's his. Her social worker hot on her heels, and demanding a place to stay, definitely doesn't make it any better. Especially with Gianna's curvy body and bedroom eyes, and his daughter's sad sweetness, making him consider keeping both of them.
Gianna knows she should run. Zach knows he should send them away. But neither of them can resist the pull toward the other.
One night with a stranger...
Kicking herself for letting her guard down and actually connecting with the sexy man whose name she doesn't even know, Katherine misses the news that her toxic ex is back, and looking for her. She can't let him find her, so she doesn't think, she just runs.
He never thought he'd see her again...
Dillon doesn't know what to think when his one night stand shows up on his doorstep. He starts to turn her away, but the terrified look in her eyes triggers all his protective instincts, and he knows he can't let her leave.
Time is against them...
Dillon and Katherine grow closer every day. As her real life calls, they both know what's happening won't last, but that doesn't stop them from wanting it to.

I’m an author of spicy Regency romance with alpha heroes and independent heroines, layers of emotion, and lots of sizzle. I fell in love with historical romances and all things Regency—and especially all those dashing Regency heroes—while living in England, where I spent most of my time reading Jane Austen and getting lost in London (especially the getting lost part). I have traveled around the world, both as a tourist and as a volunteer with children's organizations in Peru, Ecuador, Thailand, and Mexico. I love to hike and fly airplanes, adore all things chocolate and coffee, and am a Doctor Who fanatic (everyone says my house *is* bigger on the inside!). I am a terrible cook who hopes to one day use my oven for something other than shoe storage. In my spare time, when I'm not writing or teaching, I enjoy tending the roses in my garden during the summer and reading historical romances during the winter. My fav authors are Elizabeth Hoyt (her Maiden Lane series is fantastic!), Sabrina Jeffries (fabulous emotion on every page), and Sylvia Day (who isn’t afraid to take historical romance in all kinds of new and hot directions).
I've been writing since 2015, when All About Romance named me Best Debut Historical Romance Author for my debut series, THE SECRET LIFE OF SCOUNDRELS. DUKES ARE FOREVER won the 2016 Maggie Award for Best Historical Romance, and HOW I MARRIED A MARQUESS was a 2017 RITA finalist. ALONG CAME A ROGUE broke through the usual Regency romance tropes by being about a woman who is nothing like other traditional Regency heroines. And in ONCE A SCOUNDREL, we’re taken twenty-five years into the future, to follow the loves and losses of the next generation of scoundrels.
I'm so excited this year to launch my new series, CAPTURING THE CARLISLES. When these heroes meet their heroines, they've met their matches--in more ways than one! IF THE DUKE DEMANDS, in which Sebastian’s desire to find the perfect duchess is turned upside down by Miranda Hodgkins, was named a TOP PICK by Night Owl Reviews. WHEN THE SCOUNDREL SINS is Quinton’s chance for love…if he can find a way to open his heart. (RT Reviews gave it a 4-1/2 stars TOP PICK rating.) Book 3, AS THE DEVIL DARES, to be released in March 2018, pits Robert Carlisle against his greatest adversary—Mariah Winslow, the woman standing between him and his business partnership. Stay tuned for more information about the Carlisle brothers and their equally rakish cousins!
If you love history and romance as much as I do, I'd love to hear from you.

The Carlisles are back…and England will never be the same! Known as the "Scourge of Mayfair," the infamous brothers enjoy nothing more than having a good time and striking fear into the hearts of marriage-minded mamas. But when the three brothers cross paths with three very special women, they've finally met their matches--in more ways than one.

She supports a street kids project in Recife, Brazil. When she visited Grupo Ruas e Pracas, she took part in a music and crafts workshop with the children. During her stay in Rio de Janeiro, STRAYS OF RIO, a social thriller set in this city of contrasts, took shape.
In 2008 she traveled through Chile, supposedly the safest country in South America. Stopped at a red light in their rented SUV, she and her partner were sandwiched between two trucks on the Pan-American highway. An unplanned excursion to the local hospital and the Carabineros de Chile allowed her insights she never meant to gain but wouldn't want to miss. A new story idea sparked: Crumple Zone.
Nowadays, she prefers to travel back in time to 16th century Nuremberg to spend time with the hangman Meister Frantz. This executioner of the free imperial city first caught her attention when she learned he convinced the city council to let him behead women. Intrigued? No? Well, the traditional punishment for women was drowning...

Through an illogical twist of fate, Caroline Clemmons was not born on a Texas ranch. To compensate for this inexplicable error, she writes about handsome cowboys, feisty ranch women, and scheming villains in a small office her family calls her pink cave. She and her Hero live in North Central Texas cowboy country where they ride herd on their rescued cats and dogs. The books she creates there have made her an Amazon bestselling author and won several awards.
Prior to writing full time, her jobs included stay-at-home mom (her favorite), secretary, newspaper reporter and featured columnist, assistant to the managing editor of a psychology journal, bookkeeper for the local tax assessor and--for a short and fun time--an antique dealer with her youngest daughter.
Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on your viewpoint), she and her daughter took the most interesting antiques home and didn't make much money selling what was left. They enjoyed themselves tremendously, though. If she ever wins the lottery, she'll go back into the antique business while continuing to write. When she's not indulging her passion for writing, Caroline enjoys reading, travel, browsing antiques, genealogy, painting, and getting together with friends.
She has written articles for several genealogy periodicals and has put together three family books: one for the family of her mother, one for her father, and one for her mother-in-law. She often uses family names in her historical novels for accuracy to the time period.
On her blog or her website you can sign up for her newsletter and receive a free novella, HAPPY IS THE BRIDE. Being on Caroline's mailing list will also keep you informed of new releases, contests, and giveaways. Don't worry, no salesman will call.
