I'm shocked to see this book for sale under the name of a beloved, best-selling, award-winning author of romance, romantic suspense, and mystery novels. The real Patricia Ryan has been writing wonderful books for twenty years. Her name, for the purposes of the genres she writes in, is trademarked through long use and reader recognition. It doesn't matter if the author if Windswept was born with the same name. If she writes the same genre of books that the original Patricia Ryan writes, it is illegal for her to use the same name on her books. She must change it somehow or be in violation of trademark law. The publisher should have known this and told her to alter her name before publication.
Bad, bad mistake on the publishers allowing someone to write romance under Patricia Ryan. A simple google search would have provided more than enough evidence that another Patricia Ryan has been writing and winning awards for over twenty years. It's the same as if I started writing horror stories under the name Stephen King. It's more than likely an unfortunate mistake on the publishers part, but it's illegal nonetheless.
