DawnMarie Richards’ grandmother introduced her to the romance novel, providing a seemingly endless supply of dog-eared Harlequins from a stash kept in a large paper grocery bag. A life-long fan of the genre, DawnMarie decided to try her hand at writing what she most enjoys reading: intense love stories with a whole lot of spicy in all the right places. She delights in doing that very thing from her home in southern Arizona, which she shares with her husband and their crazy dog, Rand.
