From the Publisher:
Three tales of happily-ever-after include Susan Wiggs's ?The Borrowed Bride,? in which Isabel Wharton, during her own bridal shower, is whisked away by past love Dan Black Horse who takes her back to her Native roots. Original.
Since her first book, TEXAS WILDFLOWER, was published in 1987, Susan Wiggs has written dozens of historical and contemporary romances, and she has been particularly praised for the wide variety of time periods and geographic settings she employs. "When I write, I research deeply but not obsessively," she has said. "I adore accurate research, but honestly, I am not an authority on medieval warfare, organ transplantation, [or] Regency style. . . . You name it. I am not an authority [on it]." Wiggs attended Harvard University, where she sometimes hid romance novels between the pages of her textbooks. Upon graduating, she became a math teacher but began writing in her spare time, inspired by the work of Kathleen Woodiwiss, Bertrice Small, and other novelists she admired. By 1992 she had found enough success as an author to give up her teaching job. Among her most popular books are those in the contemporary Lakeshore Chronicles series, set in the Catskill Mountains. Her work now appears frequently on major bestseller lists, and she has won RITA Awards from the Romance Writers of America numerous times. In addition to her fiction, Wiggs collaborated with her daughter, Elizabeth, on the guidebook/memoir HOW I PLANNED YOUR WEDDING: THE ALL-TRUE STORY OF A MOTHER AND DAUGHTER SURVIVING THE BEST DAY OF THEIR LIVES (2011).Susan Mallery is the author of more than 100 novels and has been the recipient of a Career Achievement Award from Romantic Times magazine. Raised in Los Angeles, California, she read her first romance novel at the age of 13. "I was hooked," she told one interviewer. "I still get that heart-singing feeling when reading a well-written romance." Still, she never even considered becoming a writer herself, naively believing that anyone whose name appeared on the cover of a book must be a glamorous creature given to wearing designer clothing and frequenting chic cafes. Instead, she studied accounting. "Columns of numbers are tedious--but the theory behind the columns of numbers? Just shoot me now," she once quipped. Although she had been offered a job at a large firm, she took an evening course in creative writing and decided to give herself one year to become an author. Writing under her maiden name, Susan Macias, she published FRONTIER FLAME in 1992, and that same year TENDER LOVING CARE, her first novel as Susan Mallery, also appeared in bookstores. Starting with category romances for Silhouette, she later branched out into historical and contemporary titles. Among Mallery's most popular books are those that take place in Fool's Gold, a fictional town in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada. "The thing I love best about small towns . . . is the strong sense of community," she has said. "When you see the same people at the grocery store and the soccer field and the dentist's office, you get to know them a lot better. Readers [can] enjoy the same feeling with the people of Fool's Gold." Thanks to her many fans, she has never had to hold an accounting job.Sherryl Woods is the author of more than 100 novels, most categorized as romance or women's fiction, although she writes an occasional mystery as well. She is particularly beloved for such series as the Trinity Harbor books (which take place in a fictional version of Colonial Beach, Virginia, the small town where she spent childhood summers), the Sweet Magnolias tales (which celebrate female friendship), and the Chesapeake Shores novels (which focus on a large family named the O'Briens). She grew up in Virginia, and after graduating from the Ohio State University School of Journalism, she spent more than a decade as a reporter and TV critic at papers in Ohio and Florida. "I'd never actually considered writing fiction, but one day I realized that I was no longer having as much fun as a journalist as I thought I ought to be," Woods once told an interviewer. Because she loved reading romance novels, she tried her hand at the genre. Unlike many novelists, she received no long string of rejection letters, selling several books in quick succession. Her first, RESTORING LOVE (1982), was published under the pseudonym Suzanne Sherrill. Her second, SAND CASTLES, came out later the same year under the pseudonym Alexandra Kirk. Woods began using her own name soon after that, and in 1986, she began writing fiction full-time. She has said, "Not only am I a firm believer in happily-ever-after, but I like writing stories that are relevant to women's lives."
