About the Author
Megan Hart has been writing since she could grip a pencil in her fist. Published in nearly all genres of romance, perhaps most notably erotic, she intends to keep writing stories that make her happy. She lives in the deep, dark woods of Pennsylvania with Superman and two monsters . . . er . . . children.

Lauren Hawkeye is a writer, yoga newbie, knitting aficionado, and animal lover who lives in the shadows of the great Rocky Mountains of Alberta, Canada. She's older than she looks (really!) and younger than she feels (most of the time), and she loves to explore the journeys that take women through life in her stories.

Saranna DeWylde has always been fascinated by things better left in the dark. She wrote her first story after watching The Exorcist at a slumber party. Like all writers, Saranna has held a variety of jobs, from operations supervisor for an airline to call girl's assistant to corrections officer. But, like Hemingway said, "Once writing has become your major vice and greatest pleasure, only death can stop it." So she traded in her cuffs for a full-time keyboard and lives in the Midwest with her very own Prince Charming.
