Charlene Sands is a USA Today Bestselling author of thirty-five romance novels, writing sexy contemporary romances and the historical Old West. Her stories have been honored with the National Readers Choice Award, the Cataromance Reviewer’s Choice Award and she’s a double recipient of the Booksellers’ Best Award. She belongs to the Orange County Chapter and the Los Angeles Chapter of RWA.
Charlene knows a little something about true romance--she married her high school sweetheart! When she’s not writing, she enjoys sunny Pacific beaches, great coffee, reading books from her favorite authors and spoiling her two baby granddaughters. In January 2013 Charlene’s Harlequin Desire Sunset Surrender will launch Harlequin’s new Rich, Rugged Rancher monthly series and will be the first book in The Slades of Sunset Ranch trilogy.
