The Amazing Angel Payne
USA Today bestselling romance author Angel Payne has been reading and writing her entire life, though her love for romances began in junior high, when writing with friends on "swap stories" they'd trade between classes. Needless to say, those stories involved lots of angst, groping, drama, and gooey kissing.
She began getting a paycheck for her writing in her twenties, writing record reviews for a Beverly Hills-based dance music magazine. Some years, various entertainment industry gigs, and a number of years in the hospitality industry later, Angel returned to the thing she loves the most: creating character-based romantic fiction. Along the way, she also graduated with two degrees from Chapman University in Southern California, taking departmental honors for English, before writing five historical romances for Kensington and Bantam/Doubleday/Dell.
Angel found a true home in writing contemporary-based romances that feature high heat and high concepts, focusing on memorable alpha men and the women who tame them. She has numerous book series to her credit, including the Kinky Truth series, the Secrets of Stone series (with Victoria Blue, to be re-released through Totally Bound Publishing starting late 2016!), the W.I.L.D. Boys of Special Forces series, and the acclaimed Cimarron and Temptation Court series.
Angel still lives in Southern California, where she is married to her soul mate and lives on a street that looks like Brigadoon, with their awesome daughter and Lady Claire, the dog with impeccable manners. When not writing, she enjoys reading, pop culture, alt rock, cute shoes, enjoying the outdoors, and being a gym rat.

Angel Payne is an astonishing writer. She is one of my top three favorite authors. Her novels are full of serious hotness (of course, it is Angel Payne after all), rip-your-heart-out angst, and pure fun. What I've discovered and thoroughly enjoyed is the fact that her work has opened my eyes to many different things and made me realize that I'm not the only one that thinks about them or are interested. I do almost daily book promos for her on my own and her appreciation is limitless! I love seeing her responses to the images I create and the blurbs I post! (Cue fangirl squeal!) If you haven't read any of Angel's work yet, you need to. I promise you won't regret it.
