About the author (2011)

Author of over thirty popular books and novellas in paranormal, historical, and contemporary romance, Cindy Spencer Pape is an avid reader of romance, fantasy, mystery, and even more romance. According to The Romance Studio, her plots are full of twist and turns that keep the reader poised at the edge of their seat. Joyfully Reviewed said, her colorful characters and plot building surprises kept me spellbound, and Romantic Times Magazine says her characters are appealing, and passionate sex leads to a satisfying romance. Cindy firmly believes in happily-ever-after. Married for more than twenty years to her own, sometimes-kilted hero, she lives in southern Michigan with him and two teenage sons, along with an ever-changing menagerie of pets. Cindy has been, among other things, a banker, a teacher, and an elected politician, but mostly an environmental educator, though now she is lucky enough to write full-time. Her degrees in zoology and animal behavior almost help her comprehend the three male humans who share her household. For more about Cindy and her books, you can find her on her website, or her blog.
