Lori Wilde can’t remember a time when she didn’t want to write. She even went to nursing school so she could have a schedule flexible enough to allow her to write on the side. She nursed for 20 years, working in a variety of settings from the newborn nursery to the recovery room, to dialysis. But she never lost her desire to write.

She sold her first book in 1994 to Silhouette Romance but later discovered she had a flair for comedy and branched out to Harlequin Duets and now, to Blaze.

Lori is an adventuresome soul who loves to travel. She’s taken flying lessons, completed two marathons, rode in a hot-air balloon, performed with a professional jazz band, traveled Europe as a teenager, hiked volcanoes in Hawaii, trod on glaciers in Alaska, sho

"I expected more but was left wishing for a lot of things. I know it's a romance novel but I want a certain level that's true to reality. I don't want to spoil anything so I can't write what I'm thinking of, unfortunately.

Thank you to the publisher a" Read more of this review »
The Moonglow Sisters by Lori Wilde
"This book is pretty much what you expect it to be. It's cute and sweet and it's the type of book that I can get into even if I know it's not the highest quality writing. And so for that it's just what I was looking for. I enjoyed it on a basic level " Read more of this review »

"I'm stingy with 5 star reviews but The Moonglow Sisters easily rated this one.

Wilde does a great job at creating complex, realistic and relatable characters and she weaves the story's many reveals perfectly and exposes them with masterful timing.

“Being loved is a good thing. A grand thing. The best damned thing of all.”
Lori Wilde, High Stakes Seduction

“Their tongues met, starving, two years without this delicious meal. They kissed and kissed and kissed. The joining of their mouths was more intense than that night on the ferry. This was a kiss of reunion.
Of forgiveness.
Of coming home.”
Lori Wilde, Once Smitten, Twice Shy

“Like a battalion of marines at roll call, her neck hairs marshaled to five-alarm status. She stumbled back to her desk, jerked open the botton drawer, retrieved a pair of Nighthawk binoculars, fixed the scopes on him, and fiddled with the focus. Gotcha. Hair the colour of coal. Chocolate brown eyes. A five-o'clock shadow ringing his craggy jawline. Handsome as the day was long...

He sauntered towards her, oozing charisma from every pore. Charlee forgot to breathe. And then he committed the gravest sin of all, knocking her world helter-skelter. The scoundrel smiled.”
Lori Wilde
