WILLA LAMBERT began writing romances back in 1979 when she was contracted by American Art Enterprises to do three books, now considered classics and pulp-book "collector" editions - LOVE'S COURAGE, HOUSE OF THE BRAVE BULLS, and VANESSA IN WHITE MARBLE - for its Carousel Romances imprint.
In 1980, when Harlequin® was looking for published authors to launch its new SuperRomance®, in an effort to increase the "heat" level above and beyond that achieved by any of its previously released books, its Senior Editor George Glay brought in Willa to provide the new imprint with its all-important steamy second book, LOVE'S EMERALD FLAME, which became an international best-seller in over ten foreign-languages ... soon followed by Willa's FROM THIS BELOVED HOUR and LOVE'S GOLDEN SPELL.
Since then, Willa has published five additional romances - EMERALD-SILK INTRIGUE, JUNGLE-QUEST INTRIGUE, MOON-STONE INTRIGUE (for Heritage), HEART ON FIRE (for Wildside/Borgo), DARE TO LOVE IN OZ (for Savant).
This book, AFRICA: SPICE ISLAND LOVE, launches Willa's contracted Seven-Continent series of romances exclusively for Passion in Print which she hopes to supplement, along the way, with other PIPP romances written by her that will stand independently from this particular series.
Always open to her fans, they can usually reach Willa at: email@example.com

Bree Verity grew up on a diet of tea and crumpets, dancing, Regency novels, old movies and musicals. It's no wonder she has ended up writing love stories.
She lives in Perth Western Australia with her teenage son, her long-suffering, patient and wonderful partner, and her two writing buddies, Millie and Boofhead. She keeps it very quiet from them that she is equally a cat person.
She is horribly charmed by the tiny house movement and, although she realises she would very quickly go crazy in such a confined space, she will watch anything and everything about building tiny houses.
If there was a way to directly infuse tea into the veins, she would sign up for it immediately.
Bree loves to hear from her readers, and can be contacted on Facebook or Twitter, or at her website.
