Romance set against the backdrop of Regency England were the first Stephanie Laurens ever read, and they continue to exert a special attraction. On escaping from the dry world of professional science to carve out a career as a writer, Stephanie published either Regency romances, then turned to longer, historical romances set in the Regency period. Her first -- Captain Jack's Woman -- was published by Avon Books in 1977. Subsequent books from Avon have told the tales of the Bar Cynster -- a group of masterful, arrogant cousins of the ducal Cynster dynasty. Devils' Bride, A Rake's Vow, Scandal's Bride, A Rouge's Proposal and A Secret Love have documented handsome Cynsters. All About Love continues the series.
Residing in a leafy bayside suburb of Melbourne, Australia, Stephanie divides her free time between her husband, two teenaged daughters, and two cats, Shakespeare and Marlowe.
