Meet the Author

Born in Visalia, California, Jane Porter is a small-town girl at heart. She loves central California's golden foothills, oak trees and the miles of farmland, rich with the sweet and heady fragrance of orange blossoms.

As a little girl Jane spent hours on her bed, staring out the window, dreaming of far-off places, fearless knights, princesses and happy-ever-after endings. Her parents fed her imagination by taking her family to Europe for a year when she was thirteen. That incredible year in Europe changed Jane's life, and overseas she discovered a huge and wonderful world with different cultures and customs. She spent much of her high school and college years abroad, studying in South Africa, Japan and Ireland. South Africa remains a country of her heart, the people, the land and politics complex and heart-wrenching. Jane loved everything about Europe, as well, but felt especially passionate about Italy and those gorgeous Italian men (no wonder her very first Presents hero was Italian).

With her bachelors degree from UCLA in American Studies, a program that combines American literature and American history, she's worked in sales and marketing. Later Jane earned her masters in writing from the University of San Francisco and taught junior high and high school English. She now lives in rugged Seattle, Washington, with her two young sons. She never minds a rainy day, either, because that's when she sits at her desk and writes stories about far-away places, fascinating people, and most important of all, love. Jane likes a story with a happy ending. But then, she believes we all do.

Disobedient doesn¿t begin to describe Tally who is on a photo assignment in a wild and dangerous desert city. When she is involved in a cross fire and rescued or should I say kidnapped by the handsome sheikh Tair, the war of the sexes begins! Tally and Tair¿s love story is full of passion, heat, disagreements and misunderstandings. Tally in Tair¿s eyes is disobedient and Tally to prove the point keeps trying to runaway. As this couple gets to know each other, the reader is led on an incredible journey right along with them. When Tair takes Tally to his palace, fires like you won¿t believe ignite. In the past both characters have been through so much. Tally had to abandon her life¿s dreams to stay at home and take care of her siblings as her mother needed to work to support the family. Tally goes through a lot of self-discovery and realizes she has fallen in-love with this incredible sheikh. Tair not only lost his father but also his wife and son due to desert wars. He is afraid to let Tally but she slips right into his heart. They marry, because Tair demands they do so but Tally is kidnapped. When he realizes she might suffer further danger, he sends her away. Again Jane Porter has given her readers not just another adventure but an incredible love story, one I will personally long remember.
