Janine Kane was born and raised around the arctic plains of northern Minnesota. As a child she dreamed of becoming an archaeologist, but her plan changed a few years later when, during an excavation of her sister’s belongings, she uncovered a treasure of Harlequin Romance books and found her true calling.
She spent almost a decade in the medical field, but her heart ached to write. She finally surrendered and several years later, she has carved a niche for herself in her favorite genre. Janine’s passion for depicting strong and capable heroines is evident in the novels she has published. Her most recent release is the first installment in the Hard to Handle trilogy, “Fierce Protector”. Look for the second installment, “Fierce Defender,” late 2014.
Janine makes her home in Minnesota with her husband and two furry feline friends; Mish and Mash. When Janine isn’t breathing life into her characters, she is reading her favorite author’s newest release, cheering for her beloved Minnesota Twins, or hiking the nature trails along the shores of gorgeous Lake Superior.
