Georgina Penney first discovered romance novels when she was eleven and has been a fan of the genre ever since. It took her another eighteen years to finally sit in front of a keyboard and get something down on the page but that's alright, she was busy doing other things until then. Some of those things included living in a ridiculous number of towns and cities in Australia before relocating overseas to Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Brunei Darussalam and currently, Scotland. In between all these travels, Georgina managed to learn to paint, get herself a Communication and Cultural Studies degree, study Psychotherapy and learn all about Hypnotherapy. In the early days she even managed to get on the IT roller coaster during the early noughties boom, inexplicably ending the ride by becoming the registrar of a massage and naturopathy college. There was also a PhD in the mix there somewhere but moving to Saudi Arabia and rediscovering the bodice ripper fixed all that. Today she lives with her wonderful husband, Tony in a cozy steading in the Scottish countryside. When she's not swearing at her characters and trying to cram them into her plot, she can be found traipsing over fields, gazing and hairy coos and imagining buff medieval Scotsmen in kilts (who have access to shower facilities and deodorant) living behind every bramble hedge.
Katie Spain is a journalist and features writer for News Corp’s SA Weekend Magazine and lifestyle reporter for The Advertiser newspaper. She grew up on a dairy farm in South Australia but found her writing groove (and a serious shoe addiction) in London where she worked in digital music and West End theatre journalism. She dabbled in Sydney’s world of commercial radio before heading back to Adelaide to concentrate on cumulating keyboard strokes. Mostly, she writes about local treasures and ordinary folk with extraordinary lives but also has a thing for food, wine, good times and the odd creative side project involving wet paint. A travel bug at heart, she scours the globe for ultimate writer’s retreats and her very own bestseller. She likes wearing glitter, strange hats and ridiculously bright clothes and will continue to do so until she’s old and grey. She also has a thing for social media and manages all things Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest for SA Weekend Magazine.
I'm a motorbike-riding daredevil who isn’t content with a story unless there’s a courageous heroine and a dead body. I’m a voracious reader who loves speed and adventure. Home is amongst the vineyards in South Australia with my family and a rambunctious Hungarian Vizsla dog. By day I'm a quality coordinator (read list making word nerd) and in my spare time I enjoy motorbike riding, cooking (read eating) decadent desserts, and devising horrible things to do to my fictional characters.

Antology of Short Stories,nice cover, well written stories. Liked "Run to You" and "Deluge" best. I would have started the book off with a different story. "Leaving Princess Kate" didn't make me want to read the rest of the book.Good story but negative undertones.
