On her fortieth birthday, Robin Covington decided that having a mid-life crisis and finding a boy-toy were far too tacky, so she delved a little deeper into the “bucket list” and pulled out the long-shelved dream of becoming an author. Now, she spends her time writing sizzling romance where the hero and heroine can’t keep their hands off each other. She doesn’t miss the boy-toy at all. Happily exploring the theme of fooling around and falling in love, her stories burn up the sheets . . . one page at a time.

Robin lives in Maryland with her hilarious husband, brilliant children, and ginormous puppy. You can find Robin on her blog, Burning Up the Sheets, on Facebook and Twitter (@RobinCovington).
