          Romance For All Seasons/Too Hot to Handle

I've always been intrigued by the emotions and power of love. "Happily Ever After" endings of songs and movies inspired the romantic in me. In October 2006, I received my first romance book contract from Ellora's Cave and continue to sell sensual mainstream (paranormal and contemporary) romance stories. Humor is fun to incorporate in my stories, although some of them contain a more serious tone.

I've ghostwritten nonfiction books. In 1999, I published an autobiographical e-book based on the life of a speaker from a women's shelter. In 2010, I published a book about a woman's struggle to survive while living in Sarajevo during the 1992-1995 Bosnian War. And, in 2013, I published a nonfiction book about a dog who gets lost, is hit by a car, and struggles to survive with a new quality of life.

Marianne writes mainstream romance; April writes erotic romance.
