Though Elizabeth McKenna's love of books reaches back to her childhood, she had never read a romance novel until one Christmas when her sister gave her the latest bestseller by Nora Roberts. She was hooked from page one (actually, she admits it was the first love scene).

Her short story, The Gypsy Casts a Spell, is available for free on her website http://elizabethmckenna.com/. She hopes you will enjoy her first contemporary romance novel, First Crush Last Love, as much as others have enjoyed her historical romances.

Then I was watching one of my favorite movies, BBC's version of And Then There Was None, and something just clicked. The story will be a departure from my other books, as it will be more murder mystery than romance, but there will definitely be romance and a satisfying ending.(less)

First Crush, Last Love by Elizabeth McKenna
