About the author (1993)

Stella Cameron was born and raised on the southern coast of England where she met her American husband at a party in London. After their marriage, she left England and went with husband Jerry to Washington State to make a home and raise a family. Like many authors, Stella began her literary career as a reader. As a young girl, Stella was a self-professed reading "addict", devouring all types of literature. She learned very early to retreat from the demands of others into a gentler world -- her own. As a child and a young adult, books saved her because they helped free her while they entertained her. Her love of reading always went side-by-side with her love of writing. Nineteenth-century author Jane Austen was a particular favorite, and Stella admits that she particularly enjoys reading and writing books set in the 1800s, as well as contemporary novels. In 1980, Stella decided she wanted to write professionally. She attended writing classes and wrote short literary fiction for a year. It was during this period that Stella discovered how well-written and intense romantic fiction could be. Using her newly acquired writing skills, she began to write contemporary romantic fiction for Harlequin Americans and Intrigues. After several years, she moved up to Harlequin SuperRomances. In 1992, she made the switch to single titles with her first historical, Only By Your Touch. She has also authored a series entitled Rossmara Quartet along with several other romance titles. Stella Cameron sees herself as an entertainer and historian who adds her perspective to contemporary values through writing.

Judith E. French lives with her husband in a restored eighteenth-century farmhouse in rural Delaware. Her oldest daughter, Colleen Faulkner, is also a bestselling romance author, continuing the strong tradition of storytelling that has been shared by her family for many generations.

Linda Lael Miller began her writing career in 1983 with "Fletcher's Woman." Named "The Most Outstanding Writer of Sensual Romance" by "Romantic Times, " Ms. Miller was nominated by the Romance Writers of America for an award for her thrilling "Wanton Angel." The bestselling author's delightful novels include the exciting Corbin series, "Banner O'Brien, Corbin's Fancy, Memory's Embrace, " and "My Darling Melissa;" plus two romances set amidst the lush, rugged beauty of New Zealand and Australia, "Angelfire" and "Moonfire." A heart-stirring trilogy features the adventures of the Chalmers sisters, "Lily and the Major, Emma and the Outlaw, " and "Caroline and the Raider" -- and a wonderful homespun romance, "Daniel's Bride, " once again skyrocketed her onto the bestsellers list. Another series about the magnificent Quade family began with "Yankee Wife, " and continued with the intriguing "Taming Charlotte." Now, "Princess Annie" adds to the fun with more high spirits and sparkling sensuality. Ms. Miller has also penned an enchanting contemporary romance, "The Legacy." Linda Lael Miller lives near Seattle, Washington, with her family.

Author Anne Stuart was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1949 and grew up in Princeton, New Jersey. She had just turned 25 when her first novel, Barrett's Hill, was published in 1974. She has won numerous awards including the Romance Writers of America's Lifetime Achievement Award. She currently lives in Vermont with her husband.
