About this author

Award-winning author Lex Valentine writes across genres from contemporary to urban fantasy in M/M, M/F and M/M/F. A native of California, Lex lives in a canyon in Orange County, with her long haired, tattooed husband Rott and a bunch of cats she collectively calls “babies.” She loves loud rock music, builds her own computers, and has a propensity for having very weird vivid dreams about Nikki Sixx, although he’s never naked in them to her great disappointment.

A member of the Romance Writers of America, Lex is active in the Rainbow Romance Writers, PASIC and Orange County chapters. Her publishers include Loose Id, Ellora's Cave and Jupiter Gardens Press. She's the author of the self-published ARe and Amazon best selling series Souls in Bond

The…moreI am currently working on three things at once! The sequel to Partners which is a collaboration between myself and the wonderful VJ Summers! The second thing I'm working on is the 3rd book in the Souls in Bondage series. And I'm working to revise the middle part of Out of the Pocket, my award winning manuscript and sequel to Scrambling. I may also have an idea for a short story that might fit the 2nd RWA anthology, if they'd have me again. ;)(less)

“The only ride I’m interested in is on you, cowboy, but I’m sure all the women say that.”
Lex Valentine, Christmas Hookup

“Micah snorted. “Yes. But I’m a growing boy. I’m always hungry.”

“You’re twenty-six years old. I think you’ve grown all you’re going to,” Nick said with a chuckle.

Micah walked over to the stove and looked down into the pot of stew Nick was stirring.

“There’s a part of me that always grows when I’m close to you, sir.”

Nick’s chuckles turned to a laugh. “You’re incorrigible!”
