USA Today bestseller, Lucy Monroe happily lives in the gorgeous Pacific Northwest where green isn't just the predominant color of nature, but a lifestyle choice for many. She thinks it all ties into the same hopeful attitude she finds in romance: the belief that happy endings are as real as tragedy and love carries more power than any other emotion. Sure it takes work and dedicated commitment, but that's what real romance is all about and she believes in it. Hot, gut-wrenching romance with alpha heroes and strong heroines that readers want to love and identify with. She finds inspiration everywhere, but nowhere more consistently than in her own life-long passionate, but never boring love affair. Her own personal hero has proven time and again that alpha men know how to love and even a lifetime isn't long enough to enjoy that love when it's real. Devoted to her family, she loves to spend time with them - her sisters and her daughters are her BFFs and always will be. Now that the fitness bug has hit them all, they're as likely to be found going for a power walk together as getting mani-pedis at her favorite salon. She's as much a reader as an author and chances are your faves are in her TBR pile too. She's always delighted to meet and talk with other readers and hopes you'll stop by one of her social pages to chat.
