I’m not the only person who writes in the Sweet with Heat genre. Here’s a list of those that I know who do, with links to their books and their author profiles on Amazon. This isn’t a definitive list, so it will be edited and added to frequently. What these ladies and I write, is more traditional; think Nora Roberts, Jennifer Weiner (though we wish we were them!)
