Sara Whitney writes sassy, sexy contemporary romance novels packed with wit, heat, and heart. A 2019 Romance Writers of America Golden Heart award finalist, Sara worked as a newspaper reporter and film critic before she earned her Ph.D. and landed in academia. She’s a great baker, a so-so karaoke singer, and an expert TV opinion-haver.

Sara and her divorce-attorney husband are lifelong Midwesterners who live in a house full of books, cats, and pinball machines. And yes, she likes to think that her fictional happily-ever-afters help keep their karmic scale in balance. Keep up with Sara by subscribing to her mailing list at

Fantastic start to a new series that gripped me from page 1. The scope of the world-building is impressive, and I loved watching Raven and Gabriel's relationship unfold. Bring on book 2!
