Shannon Gilmore

Shannon, a multi award-winning author of historical romance, is a California native who developed a passion for romance after reading her first book by Johanna Lindsey. Her second book in the Ruined Rakes series earned the favor of FAB five judges to win the Silver Quill® award. Every Time You’re Near was also notably nominated for the coveted Golden Heart®.

In her books readers are likely to find an unchaperoned heroine and a hero who thinks he knows what he wants.

And when she’s not doing writerly things like drinking coffee heavily laced with chocolate, she’s crafting, quilting, crocheting, and listening to the ambient sounds of ice-hockey with her real life happily-ever-after husband.
