Fluent in both sarcasm and cuss words, Tricia Lynne has little filter between her mouth and brain, and her over-active imagination can turn the simplest nursery rhymes into sexual innuendo––a talent that tends to embarrass her husband in public places.
A lover of hard rock and good Irish whiskey, Tricia raised hell, raced bicycles––including BMX––and will always be a tomboy who prefers her Vans to her heels.
Taking the practical road through college, she earned degrees in both sociology and accounting, but her heart was always in writing. When an unfortunate series of knee surgeries kept her from working, she finally had the time to chase her dream, and within half a heartbeat, story ideas started to swim in her head.
A voracious reader, Tricia devours at least two books a week, and there is no genre she loves to read more than romance. Be it erotic, paranormal, contemporary, sci-fi, young adult, mystery or suspense, she loves knowing the happy ending awaits.
When she’s not writing, Tricia spends time with her husband and their two goofy, but extremely cute, dogs. She participates in dog agility, loves to swim, and, of course, she reads. She also makes frequent trips back to her hometown in Illinois, where she has a huge extended family.

Moonlight & Whiskey
When life gives you curves, you gotta learn how to rock them.
Successful businesswoman Avery Barrows likes her dips and curves, but she’s sick of the haters telling her that she should be ashamed of her body instead of embracing it. Determined to send them a big f*** you, Avery resolves to cut loose during a girls’ trip, hightailing her quick-mouthed, plus-sized self to New Orleans. So, what’s a smart woman with a little extra gotta do to get laid in this town?
Not much if you ask Declan McGinn, the lead singer of BlackSmith. Tall, dark, and tattooed, with a body made for sin, Declan prefers his women as curvy as his guitars. Avery’s sharp tongue and keen mind makes him want her even more.
As they burn up the sheets, Avery and Declan realize this is no one-night (or even one-week) stand. But for all of her bluster, Avery isn’t sure she can handle any more rejection. Besides, Declan has demons of his own. Now Avery has a choice to make: play it safe, or place her trust in the hands of a man who’s as tempting as the devil himself.
“Super sexy! Against a sensual New Orleans backdrop, Moonlight & Whiskey follows a woman’s journey toward acceptance of her body and herself.”—Helen Hoang, author of The Kiss Quotient
