Pay It Forward Friday is my way of thanking authors who have done something that has helped me either personally or professionally in some way in the past years. Some I’ve only met online, some at conferences, and some have become long-term friends. Others may not even know what they did, or even who I am, but at some point they said or posted something that helped me or inspired me in some way.

They have no idea they are being featured here; I’ve secretly gone to their website and gathered their information. I hope you’ll look up their books and support them by buying a book (or a whole series) because they’re not only great authors but great people too!


Amy is the first person I met when I attended my very first Toronto Romance Writers’ meeting. I’m blanking on what to say about her because she’s just always been there — she’s been so supportive. Both by email and in person. We drove together on a long road trip to New Orleans last year for the RT Booklovers’ convention, toured the French Quarter together, stopped off in Memphis and had dinner on Beale Street, toured Graceland…and toasted her grandmother when we stayed a hotel her grandmother had always wanted to visit when we stopped off in Nashville. She’s just a fantastic person who has supported me every step of the way…

Amy-Ruttan-RT2014Amy discovered her love of the written word when she realized that she could no longer act out the fantastical romances in her head with her dolls. Writing about delicious heroes was much more fun than playing with plastic men dolls with the inevitable flesh-colored “tighty whities”.

She loves history, the paranormal, and will spew out historical facts like a volcano, much to her dearest hubby’s chagrin.

When she’s not thinking about the next sensual romp, she’s chasing after three rug rats and reading anything spicy that she can get her hands on.

She writes sensuous passionate romance whether it’s a little bit on the steamy side or a little bit spicier; her romances are always timeless and full of passion.

What Amy loves most about writing, especially in the historical genre, is the research that goes into her fiction. She loves to learn about new places and new things. She travels the world in her living room through her characters.




IHIV_RuttanThe hero she never forgot…

Keeping out of the spotlight isn’t easy for senator’s daughter Dr. Jennifer Mills…especially after being jilted at the altar by her ex-fiancé! Arriving in Las Vegas, she’s just hoping to blend in… But then she meets ER surgeon Nick Rousseau—the same man she spent an unforgettable night with three years earlier!

Now returned from Afghanistan, ex-army medic Nick is struggling to come to terms with his time on the front line. Rekindling his romance with Jennifer reminds this brooding doctor that some things in life are still worth fighting for…

    I love Amy. She is just the sweetest lady and always has a good word to say about everyone. I first met her at Romanticon. And it only took me a year. Huh, you say? I missed her the first time around but was sure to find her and meet her the next time. I have a number of her books – great stuff.
