Alison KentAlison Kent is the author of more than fifty published works, including her debut novel, Call Me, which she sold live on the “Isn’t It Romantic?” episode of CBS’s 48 Hours. Her novels A Long, Hard Ride and Striptease were both finalists for Romantic Times Reviewer’s Choice Awards, while The Beach Alibi was honored by the national Quill Awards and No Limits was selected as a Cosmopolitan Magazine Red Hot Read. The author of The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Writing Erotic Romance and a veteran blogger, Alison decided long ago that if there’s a better career than writing, she doesn’t want to know. She lives in her native Texas with her petroleum geologist husband, three rescue dogs, one a Hurricane Katrina survivor, and a colony of semi-feral cats, one of whom has learned to use the dog door and comes and goes at will. She also fights the region’s heat to grow tomatoes and jalapeños, as those edibles pretty much take care of themselves, giving her more time to play on Twitter, and write.
