Joanna Bourne is the award-winning author of Rogue Spy, The Black Hawk, The Forbidden Rose, My Lord and Spymaster, and The Spymaster's Lady. She has always loved reading and writing romance. She's drawn to Revolutionary and Napoleonic France and Regency England because, as she puts it, "It was a time of love and sacrifice, daring deeds, clashing ideals, and really cool clothing." She's lived in seven different countries, including England and France, the settings of the Spymaster series. Joanna lives on a mountaintop in the Appalachians with her family, a peculiar cat, and an old brown country dog.
Praise for Joanna Bourne and My Lord and Spymaster "Joanna Bourne's voice is distinct, fresh, and engaging."--Madeline Hunter, New York Times bestselling author "Bourne is a magnificent writer. If she were a chef, you'd eat slowly to enjoy each bite. With her books, you savor every word."--Salon.com "A very, very good historical romance featuring complex and flawed characters far out of the typical wallpaper mode...Bourne is an undeniably powerful new voice in historical romance."--All About Romance "Ms. Bourne proves to be an excellent storyteller. [Jess is] one of the most complex and interesting heroines I've seen in a long time."--Fresh Fiction "A fantastically clever tale with twists and turns aplenty. The setting and characters will have you quickly entrenched in the time period, and the witty dialogue and steaming sexual tension will keep you happily wrapped in Ms. Bourne's world."--Romance Junkies "This tale drenches itself in sexual tension so taut that there are times you can hardly catch your breath...Steeped in rich historical atmosphere and superbly written."--Romance Reader at Heart "Another notch in Joanna Bourne's belt for a job well done. No, not just well--but excellently well."--Romance Reviews Today
