About the Author

Scarlet Hawthorne began writing short stories at the age of eight, poems at ten, and wrote her first novella - a romantic tragedy - at twelve. Today she enjoys creating characters who discover integrity and their authentic selves through their sexuality.

An award-winning and bestselling author in a variety of genres under other pen names, Scarlet was a featured author at the 2014 BDSM Writers Conference in New York City and contributed an excerpt from her upcoming romantic suspense RETROGRADE to the first BDSM Writers Con Anthology.

Scarlet has been a speaker at national conferences discussing how power exchange can enhance relationships, and she loves including elements of BDSM in her erotic romances because she hopes to reverse the misinformation and negative stereotypes promulgated in the media.

Always eager to challenge herself as a writer, Scarlet utilized a "panoramic point of view" narrative style, rarely found in fiction today, in her latest novel DEADLINE.

Scarlet lives with her two dogs and their Master in a lakeside community in the New Orleans area. When not devoting herself to writing or what Erica Jong refers to as the requisite "zitzfleisch," Scarlet spends her free time drinking wine and eating cheese, taking long candlelit bubble baths, and playing with her dogs around the lake.

Her next release is the contemporary male/male romance BETWEEN THE NOTES, expected in spring, 2015.

This is the story about Gillian, an author who has been in the business for a long time in one genre, who upon the advice of a good friend decides to try another. Her books sell like hot cakes and she's suddenly rich. However, as her finances go up, her life goes down. Her husband can't cope with her 'pen name' and so files for divorce but is very quickly with someone else. To top it off, she is getting crazy letters and emails from a religious hate group, although she doesn't take this seriously to start with. With the deadline for her third book due and not even an outline, she heads off to the Adirondacks to a cabin. There she meets the police chief, Sam Taylor, when he calls round to inform her about a break-in at her friend's house. Things very quickly move on between these two and this is where the book didn't work for me. I really, REALLY don't like insta-love and this book was full of it. Insta-lust to start with, admittedly, but then insta-love. Gillian even states herself that she has only known him for 5 (yes, that's FIVE) days. I just didn't get their relationship at all. The suspense side of the book was well done and I did enjoy that part although I did figure out whodunnit quite early on. It may have been a lucky guess. On the whole, an enjoyable book with only a couple of grammatical mistakes.
