Sophie Jordan grew up on a pecan farm in the Texas hill country, where she wove fantasies of dragons, warriors, and princesses. A former high school English teacher, she's also the New York Times bestselling author of Avon historical romances and the Firelight series. She now lives in Houston with her family. When she's not writing, she spends her time overloading on caffeine (lattes and Diet cherry Coke preferred), talking plotlines with anyone who will listen (including her kids), and cramming her DVR with true-crime and reality-TV shows.
Jordan is brilliant at creating vivid descriptions and using flashbacks to connect the lovers. Cruz and Gabby are tremendously likable, together and separately, and their unknowingly mutual crush and deep emotional bond will place this masterpiece at the top of any romance reader's list. -- Publishers Weekly <strong>(starred review)</strong> The would-be high school sweethearts prove that being locked up is much hotter when you're with the one you love-a bold and lusty installment in the series. -- Kirkus Reviews BEAUTIFUL SINNER is a tale about redemption and arising from the ashes. ... a beautiful tale of sweet love. -- Romance Reviews Today
