At the April 2009 Romantic Times Book Lovers Convention in Orlando, FL, Allison was thrilled to receive a Reviewer’s Choice Award for Best Historical Romantic Mystery of 2008, for Dark Temptation.
Her current release, MOST EAGERLY YOURS (March 2010), debuts her new Victorian series, Her Majesty’s Secret Servants, featuring four sisters who risk their lives, hearts, and occasionally their virtue in the service of their new young queen. Book 2, OUTRAGEOUSLY YOURS, will hit the book stores Dec. 7, 2010.
Allison lives with her husband and daughters in South Florida and is a member of the Florida Romance Writers. She and her family love to travel, especially throughout Great Britain and Ireland, and she’s never happier than when exploring castle ruins, ancient abbeys, or the rambling gardens of old country manors.
FAVORITE QUOTE ON THE NATURE OF LOVE:
Ronnie, from the movie Moonstruck: “…Love don’t make things nice – it ruins everything. It breaks your heart. It makes things a mess. We aren’t here to make things perfect. The snowflakes are perfect. The stars are perfect. Not us. Not us! We are here to ruin ourselves and to break our hearts and love the wrong people and die.”
