Angel Payne knows how to write angst, passion, spice, romance, love, and any other emotion you can think of!
Her words bring you into the story – you’re there, in the moment, in all the moments and you just can’t put her books down. Seriously, you don’t want to stop reading – you want to know what happens next!!!
Naughty Little Gift is the first of a trio of stories, and what a way to start! I’m a total fan-girl of Angel and this new series pushes me farther and farther into her awesomeness! Her uncanny ability to open up new worlds for her readers is priceless – we get to live in another world where passion and love conquer all…. with a lot of twists and turns along the way – but what a Ride and what a Rush! I’ll say it again, Angel Payne ROCKS the world of words!
USA Today bestselling romance author Angel Payne has been reading and writing her entire life, though her love for romances began in junior high, when writing with friends on “swap stories” they’d trade between classes. Needless to say, those stories involved lots of angst, groping, drama, and French kissing.
She began getting a paycheck for her writing in her twenties, writing record reviews for a Beverly Hills-based dance music magazine. Some years, various entertainment industry gigs, and a number of years in the hospitality industry later, Angel returned to the thing she loves the most: creating character-based romantic fiction. Along the way, she also graduated with two degrees from Chapman University in Southern California, taking departmental honors for English, before writing five historical romances for Kensington and Bantam/Doubleday/Dell.
Angel found a true home in writing contemporary-based romances that feature high heat and high concepts, focusing on memorable alpha men and the women who tame them. She has numerous book series to her credit, including the Kinky Truth series, the Secrets of Stone series (with Victoria Blue), and the popular W.I.L.D. Boys of Special Forces series, as well as several stand-alone titles. The Cimarron series launched in 2015 and will continue in 2016.
Angel still lives in Southern California, where she is married to her soul mate and lives on a street that looks like Brigadoon, with their awesome daughter and Lady Claire, the dog with impeccable manners. When not writing, she enjoys reading, pop culture, alt rock, cute shoes, enjoying the outdoors, and gym-ratting (where her skin does NOT look as amazing as this airbrushed picture!).
