Member Since
May 2009

Courtney Milan’s books have received starred reviews in Publishers Weekly and Booklist. She is a New York Times and a USA Today Bestseller and a RITA® winner.

Courtney lives in the Rocky Mountains with her husband, an exceptionally perfect dog, and an attack cat.

Before she started writing historical romance, Courtney got a graduate degree in theoretical physical chemistry from UC Berkeley. After that, just to shake things up, she went to law school at the University of Michigan and graduated summa cum laude. Then she did a handful of clerkships with some really important people who are way too dignified to be named here. She was a law professor for a while. She now writes full-time.

I just want to make things clear right off the bat.

This is not a traditional romance, and most people would probably say that this is not a romance at all. There is so much in this book that just blows past my comfort zones. If I were grading this bo

Rose Your books keep getting better and better. You manage to write human interaction so poignantly with such realism.

I was introduced to your books with Unclaimed. I had never ever read a book with a virgin hero... and found him attractive. It was a revelation.

Anyway, I checked your website every few weeks to see if The Duchess war was out. Finally signing up for your mailing list (no filler e-mails, hooray!)Regardless of the fact I was in my last semester of grad school, and I was getting married in November. It was so worth the wait... and then to have the novella come out so soon after!

Thank you. I look forward to reading your books for a very long time!

Carol *Young at Heart Oldie* Thank you for accepting my friend invite, Courtney!

Courtney Milan Thank you, Chryssa! Hope that you enjoy THE DUCHESS WAR when it's out!

Chryssa Thank you for accepting my friend request! I have started getting acquainted with the Turner brothers and I am so very pleased with them!
I cant wait for the first book of Brothers Sinister to come out! Loved Hugo and Serena's story! :O)

Veronica Thanks for the friendship...nice to meet you.

Sangria Thanks for your friendship, Courtney! :D

Courtney Milan Thanks, Kara! It really tickles me pink that you enjoyed Jenny & Gareth's interaction. :)

Kara Morgan Hi,
I just finished reading "Proof by Seduction" and it was great I love the way that the characters were brought to life in the book. Especially the character of Jenny Keeble A.K.A. Madame Esmerelda how although she puts up a confident front as a woman you can still see the vulnerability in her attitude as well as in Gareth's stern demeanor. I also love the way you incorporated Gareth being a scientist which I seldom see in Historical Romance, I thought it was very original. So from me I say 10 stars and I recommend "Proof By Seduction" by Courtney Milan to all my friends. :0)
