Test Isabel Sharpe started reading romance in high school, back when it should have been called, “Men who plunder honeyed depths and the women who let them.”

After she quit work eight years ago to be with her first-born son and nearly went out of her mind with boredom, she started writing. Yes, she was the clichéd bored housewife writing romance, but it was either that cliché or seduce the mailman, and her mailman was unattractive.

14 sales later, to Duets, Temptation and Blaze as well as 3 Harlequin special projects, the mailman is still ugly and Isabel can safely say she made the better choice.
