Author: Kiru Taye

As a teenager and young adult, I read a lot of books. Mostly, I loved the romantic fantasies of being swept away by dashing heroes to exotic locations. Though my reading tastes have matured since then, I still love reading romance novels. Having always dreamt of writing novels, I finally 'bit the bullet' in 2010. I wrote my first contemporary romance novel and submitted the first chapter as an entry to New Voices writing contest in September 2010. It was shortlisted for ‘call-back’. Since then, I’ve completed two other contemporary romance novels. I’ve also completed two books in a 3-book series of historical romance novellas. The first book in the series His Treasure is due out in December 2011 published by Breathless Press. My works-in-progress include a paranormal novel - book 1 of a paranormal series, a romantic suspense novel, a contemporary romance novel and a paranormal novella for an anthology, all at different stages. My stories feature dark, sexy, tortured heroes and smart, sassy, rebellious heroines that claim their hearts, with passions unleashed in hot exotic Africa. I was born in Nigeria, but currently live in the UK with my very own alpha-hero husband and two young children
