Bio for Regina Scott:

Regina Scott started writing novels in the third grade.  Thankfully for literature as we know it, she didn’t actually sell her first novel until she had learned a bit more about writing.  Since her first book was published in 1998, her stories have traveled the globe, with translations in many languages including Dutch, German, Italian, and Portuguese. She and her husband of over 20 years reside in southeast Washington State.

Blurb to The Irresistible Earl:

If Chase Dearborn, the powerful Earl of Allyndale, found Meredee Price’s family in Scarborough, surely he’d continue his quest to challenge Meredee’s stepbrother to a duel. Meredee is determined to avoid the earl at all costs. But saving a drowning young lady thwarts Meredee’s plans when her act of heroism nets her the attention of the lady’s brother and guardian — none other than Chase himself.

Meredee’s gentle ways and tranquil beauty touch Chase’s guarded heart from the moment he meets her. He’s waited a lifetime for a worthy companion — someone he can trust with his deepest secrets. But then he discovers that Meredee has harbored a secret of her own — one that love may not overcome.

Fudge-Laced FeloniesBio for Cynthia Hickey:

Cynthia Hickey has been making up stories since she was a child. How fortunate that she finally found an outlet for her, uh, fictional tellings. She lives in Arizona with her husband and two of their seven children plus a dog, two cats, two birds, and a snake named Flash.

Blurb for Fudge-Laced Felonies:

While transplanting the rosebush her church’s handsome greeter, Ethan Banning, inadvertently killed, Summer and Ethan discover a hidden stash of diamonds, a rusty can full of cash, and a bloody gardening glove. This discovery sets Summer and her candy-making aunt on a search for a killer.

As Summer gets closer to the truth—not only of the theft but of her true feelings for Ethan—the diamond thief hatches a plan to hush the feisty sleuth.

Ethan’s love for Summer stays buried beneath his teasing, especially when she appears to be attracted to someone else. Summer’s quirky and daring resolve to crack the case has him acting heavy-handedly in order to protect her—but will it push her away for good?

She Makes It Look EasyBio for Marybeth Whalen:

Marybeth Whalen is the wife of Curt and mom of six children. The family lives outside Charlotte, NC. Marybeth is a member of the Proverbs 31 Ministries writing team and a regular contributor to their daily devotions. Her first novel,*The Mailbox*  was released in June 2010. Her next novel, *She Makes It Look Easy*, will be released in June 2011. Additionally, she serves as director of She Reads, Proverbs 31 Ministries’ fiction division. You can find her online at www.marybethwhalen.com or www.southernbelleview.com.

Blurb for She Makes It Look Easy:

Ariel Baxter has just moved into the neighborhood of her dreams. The chaos of domestic life and the loneliness of motherhood, however, moved with her. Then she meets her neighbor, Justine Miller. Justine ushers Ariel into a world of clutter-free houses, fresh-baked bread, homemade crafts, neighborhood playdates, and organization techniques designed to make marriage better and parenting manageable.
Soon Ariel realizes there is hope for peace, friendship, and clean kitchen counters. But when rumors start to circulate about Justine’s real home life, Ariel must choose whether to believe the best about the friend she admires or consider the possibility that “perfection” isn’t always what it seems to be.
A novel for every woman who has looked at another woman’s life and said, “I want what she has,” She Makes It Look Easy reminds us of the danger of pedestals and the beauty of authentic friendship.
