Scribbling Women and the Real-Life Romance Heroes Who Love Them

A “Killer” Wedding by J. Kenner

In Scribbling Women and the Real-Life Romance Heroes Who Love Them, twenty-eight romance fiction writers reveal their real-life stories of how they met, wed and love—and are loved and supported by—their spouses and life partners. At times whimsical and laugh-out-loud funny (Jacquie D’Alessandro’s “Donny & Me?”, Nikoo and Jim McGoldrick’s “Soul Mates for a Thousand Lifetimes”), at others poignant and bittersweet (Elf Ahearn’s “A Lost Friend, A Movie Star, A Man to Love Forever”), all unfailingly inspiring (Lisa Renée Jones’s “Unexpected Treasures”; Deanna Raybourn’s “Once in a Blue Moon”), each essay celebrates that most powerful and sacred of human bonds.


Happily Ever After isn’t only the stuff of romance novels and fairy tales. It is every woman’s birthright.

All net proceeds from sales of the book benefit Win, a NYC charity that transforms the lives of homeless women and their children.
