TRP is proud to announce our newest author...
Madeline Iva grew up in a family of women who regularly traded brown grocery bags full of all kinds of romance. As a way of enduring the incivilities of high school, Madeline switched to reading elegant and refined regency romances, which is how she developed her fanatical love for Georgette Heyer. As an adult, Madeline discovered erotic romance and began writing them in 2010.
Now Madeline writes about smart, outspoken women, the brooding heroes who are drawn to them, and the feisty sex that follows. She writes paranormal, fantasy, and contemporary erotic romance—and sometimes a blend of all three.
Madeline’s first story “Sexsomnia” is included in THE LADY SMUT BOOK OF DARK DESIRES, published by Harper Impulse in 2014. Madeline also started Love Fest, a day of romance panels at Virginia Festival of the Book. In 2013, Madeline and two friends co-founded LadySmut.com, a romance blog devoted to all things intelligent and sexy. She still posts about romance and men every Thursday. In the summer of 2015 she taught at the Mid-Atlantic Fiction Writer’s Institute.
Madeline adores not only her husband of thirty years, but foodie culture, movies, gardening, and all things chocolate. You can check out her inspirational Pinterest boards here:

The TRP Author Interview
After watching too many seasons of the Bachelor, I’m also drawn to exploring how women go after the men they want. Often these same women are a little squirmier when it comes to being on the receiving end of love. I relish those uncomfortable moments where an independent, strong woman has to accept someone looking after her for a change.
Finally, is there anything better than the physical bond great sex can bring? When a couple starts feeling like two parts of a whole, when they’re intellectual and intimate emotional partners—it’s perfection.
Thank you Madeline!! Her first release with TRP will be available for pre-order October 1st, 2016. Check back for blog opportunities and the R4R event.
