Speaker Bios
Stoni Alexander writes erotic romance about tortured alpha males and independent, strong-willed females. Her passion is creating love stories where the hero and heroine help each other through a crisis so that, in the end, they’re equal partners in more ways than love alone. Sign up for Stoni’s monthly newsletter and she’ll gift you a free erotic short available only to her Inner Circle members.

J.L. Lora is a Dominican-American author. Her stories explore the dark side of good characters, people living in the gray areas of life while playing the cards life has dealt them. She lives in Maryland, pursuing her dream of writing compelling, sexy, can’t-put-down stories about empowered, badass alpha heroines and take-your-breath-away alpha heroes.

L. Penelope has been writing since she could hold a pen and loves getting lost in the worlds in her head. She is an award-winning fantasy and paranormal romance author. She lives in Maryland with her husband and their furry dependents.

USA TODAY bestselling author Anne Renwick writes steampunk romance, placing a new kind of biotech in the hands of mad scientists, proper young ladies and determined villains.

USA Today bestselling author Rebecca Rivard read way too many romances as a teenager, little realizing she was actually preparing for a career. She now spends her days with dark shifters, sexy fae and other magical creatures—which has to be the best job ever. Her Fada Shapeshifter Series was recently voted Best Shifter Series in the 2018 Paranormal Romance Guild Reviewer’s Choice Awards. Rivard is also a two-time finalist in the RONE Award (including a silver medal for Saving Jace), and her books have finaled in the EPIC, the HOLT Medallion and the PRISM Awards as well.
