Editor’s Note: RECKLESS NIGHTS IN ROME is a flirty, romantic love story with two strong leading characters.
Book Description: After the death of her parents, the loss of her home and her fiancé’s betrayal, Bronte wasn’t looking for love…but when a charismatic Italian enters her life, will she be able to resist sweet temptation? Or is the pastry chef about to get burned…
Author’s Inspiration: This book is the product of my love for romantic novels which have inspired me over the years and my desire to become a writer.
I have wanted to become a writer since I was in school. Pursuing careers in finance, fitness and interior design together with marriage and having children, the time available for writing was difficult and opportunities scarce. After an illness five years ago, there was spare time, while recuperating and I lost any ‘fear of failure’ . Over the next few years I entered writing competitions and acted on advice and feedback. The result was ‘Reckless Nights in Rome’ and four other books in the series with more on the way.
Editor’s Note: Desperate for passion, a woman takes a walk on the wild side in INVITATION TO SEDUCTION.
The author did a great job with the steamy scenes and their dialogue.
Book Description: Invitation to Seduction is the first book in the Open Invitation 3-book series about “The Club.” Debbie’s learned the hard way that she isn’t desirable. So when she flirts with a man at The Club, she gets more than she’s ever dreamed, and the game she plays soon turns to obsession for the fire in one man’s touch. Stephen wants far more from Debbie than a few nights of seduction, but can he make her believe in forever?
Author’s Inspiration: I want readers to know that passionate sex isn’t just for the young. Older can be a whole lot better.

Editor’s Note: Live And Let Lie is a humorous mystery short story.
Book Description: It’s the prequel to the Cat Sinclair mystery novels and stars Cat, a wannabe actress with too much attitude and not enough butt-kissing skills to get the good roles. While serving drinks at a party for a big-time Hollywood producer, she finds herself surrounded by scandal and accomplished liars. With nobody to trust, it’s up to Cat to untangle the lies from the truth without sinking her career.
Author’s Inspiration: The Cat Sinclair mystery series is my signature series and feature Cat, ex-actress and wannabe P.I. The character of Cat came to me at a low point in my life. I hated my job. I was so bored. I used to write stories when the boss wasn’t looking even though I was supposed to be working. Cat is the same. She usually falls asleep or surfs the net to escape the mind-numbing boredom of her office job. I like to think the Cat Sinclair series is for everyone who has ever felt stuck in a rut and dreamed of a more interesting career.

I write stories about my own fantasies. They’re not to everyone’s taste but I’m a real person, a nice girl, and I’m honest about my sexual inclinations. I’m thirty-two years old and live in a small town in beautiful Ontario with my two dogs. I was born and raised here. I took creative writing classes in school but it wasn’t till I got back to my hometown and was working as a waitress that I really started writing. I like to write about strong, adventurous women. They are the kinds of women I like to imagine I am, or at least would be if I had the courage.
Editor’s Note: TIES THAT BIND is a murder mystery that the whole family will love!
Book Description: Detective Madison Knight and her partner must pull together to stop a potential serial killer. But when the Sergeant starts pressuring her to just put someone behind bars and close the case and her partner starts worrying more about saving his marriage than catching the killer, Madison is left to her own devices to catch the culprit.
Author’s Inspiration: I love the crime genre so it seemed like a natural fit. I wanted a strong female lead instead of the woman being led about by her male partner. Readers have described Madison Knight as “a sharp, insightful protagonist.” Of course, she can’t be all tough. She has an aversion to blood and she does have a chocolate addiction.
Carolyn Arnold published her first book, TIES THAT BIND, the first in her Madison Knight Series, in 2011 and it became a Kindle Best Seller, reaching the top 100 in Police Procedurals in the US and in the UK. Her writing has been compared to New York Times Bestsellers such as JD Robb, Mary Higgins Clark, Sue Grafton, Michael Connelly, Tess Gerritsen, and more. Carolyn was born in 1976 in a rural town of Ontario, Canada. She is a member of Crime Writers of Canada and lives with her husband, and two beagles in a city near Toronto.
