About this author

Having a rich English ancestry that can be traced back to the 1500s, BARBARA PIERCE credits her grandmother and the romantic family tales she was told as a child for inspiring her early fascination with English history.

Striving to balance her love of history with the need to tell a compelling story, she debuted in 2000 with A Desperate Game. Since then, she has created two successful family series, the Bedegraynes and the Carlisles.

In 2006, the first book in the Carlisle series, Wicked Under the Covers was nominated by Romantic Times for their prestigious Reviewer's Choice Award for Most Sensual Historical. In 2007, Sinful Between the Sheets received the same nomination, and went on to win the award.

Jeannie Faulkner Barber Hi Barbara and thanks for adding me as a friend. I love this website! I know you're a busy lady, but if you have the time, I'd love for you to visit my web site, jeanniebarber.com. I'm a novice writer so feel free to make any kind of suggestions, ideas or thoughts to correct it. I’m co-authoring a novel with Patty Wiseman, another friend on Goodreads. We’ve known each other for over 30 years. While you're there, please sign the guestbook, too! There’s also a link to our book you can click on…clairkelley@synthasite.com. This site is brand new and in the editing stage as is our story. Please visit it as well. We’re both very green, but we’ve met so many people on this site willing to reach out and offer advice or a guiding hand, we feel very blessed.
Thanks,
Jeannie

Brandilyn Romance is completely addictive! I starting reading them while in portland on spring break of my junior year in high school. My dad was having cancer treatments then, and i walked across the hall to see what was in the entertainment room, we had left the backpack with my books sitting on the couch so i picked up a few novels. Wasn't thrilled about it, i had read mostly non fiction up until then, but I absolutely got swept away. I read Lisa Kleypas' "Midnight Angel" In a matter of several hours. After that I was hooked!

Liz Helllooooo, Barbara,

Thanks for the invitation to add you as a friend. I read your profile. Your titles sound torrid and out of my grandmotherly league, but I'm right with you there on English history. Love it! Love your picture, too. You're a beautiful lady.

Nita Hey, lady! Fancy meeting you here. :)

I've been so busy with writing and promo lately. No time to read. My TBR pile keeps growing. I think I have two of yours in that pile now. I'm looking forward to them.

I've got to finish two more WIPs before I can take time off and read some, though. And edits will start soon on my western.

No rest for the weary. :)
