Meet the Author



Alison Kent was a born reader, but it wasn't until the age of thirty that she decided she wanted to be a writer when she grew up. Five years and a mental library of industry knowledge later, she had the most basic grasp of "how-to" and her first book in print.

Three years after that, she found a permanent home at Harlequin, accepting an invitation issued by the senior editor of the Temptation series, live on the "Isn't It Romantic?" episode of CBS 48 Hours.

That book, Call Me, was a Romantic Times finalist for Best First Series Book in 1996.

With her first three Temptations in print, she took a break from writing romance novels and spent a few months living one, finding her own hero and practicing every technique she'd learned from a lifetime of reading the best "how-to" manuals around! She now writes for both the Harlequin Blaze and Kensington Brava lines, and is a partner in Access Romance and DreamForge Media.

And the rest, as they say, is history. With the encouragement of her new master, er, husband, Alison is now back at work writing the stories she loves to read—the fantasies that show readers the way love was meant to be. Alison lives in a Houston, Texas, suburb with her hero, four vagabond kids and a dog named Smith.

And she actually manages to write in the midst of all that madness. Readers can contact Alison through her web site at alisonkent.com.

    captivating contemporary romance

    Erin Thatcher loves her work as the owner-manager of the successful pub Paddington¿s On Main in downtown Houston. However, though her career provides much satisfaction, Erin feels it is time to open up her personal life that she kept on hold. She wants a fling before she settles on Mr. Right whomever that might be. Every time she sees her loft neighbor or hears him playing the blues, she dreams of a night of sex. She decides her neighbor Sebastian Gallo is the perfect romantic romp; Erin pursues making her fantasy starring him real. Sebastian shares her torrid reverie, but shies away from his desires as he fears if he went under the covers with her, she would uncover his dark secret that he is the author of the Slater best-selling horror novels under the name Falco. Still, neither can resist the lure of a one night-stand which can blossom into a life time of happiness if both parties cease running form commitment. THE SWEET TABOO is a captivating contemporary romance that works on several levels. Obviously being a Blaze imprint means torrid scenes. Those are well written and fit nicely into the story line. However, what turns on Alison Kent¿s novel is the amusing yet serious banter between the lead protagonists and the electronic dialogue amidst the females of the ¿man to do¿ crowd that is part humor, part compassionate, and totally on top.
