More About the Author

I can't remember a time when I didn't want to be a writer when I grew up, but there were plenty of times when I wasn't sure I ever would be. As it turns out, it just took me about twenty years longer to grow up than I expected!

On the road to publication, I took a few detours, including a stint in academia (I hold an MA in Classics from the University of Chicago and was a recipient of a Mellon Fellowship in the Humanities) and many years as a technical writer/instructional designer for a data processing company. I still hold my day job in instructional design, but my true passion is writing steamy romances-both historical and contemporary.

I learned to believe in love at first sight when I met the man of my dreams twenty years ago and to believe in happily ever after when I married him. I live in Southern California with my husband, our three children, and an ever-changing menagerie of pets.

Customer Reviews

Could have put a little more effort into the stories to make them better.

If you like sensual, satisfying historical romances with a nice, amusing voice, this is definitely an anthology you will enjoy.
Carrie E. Hembree
I liked how each of her characters were very distinct people with unique problems.

Format: Paperback
BEHIND THE RED DOOR is a volume of erotic romance novellas set in
Regency England that have several connecting factors. The most
significant factor is that each novella has scenes that take place in
a high-class brothel that has, you guessed it, a red door. The overall
tone of all three novellas is light and mostly sweet, sort of an
erotic throwback to the traditional Regencies that don't seem to get
published much anymore. All three stories are plotted appropriately
for their wordcount restrictions, without the "whole book crammed into
a tiny space" feel that shorter works by novelists tend to have. The
author interweaves characters in the three stories without it seeming
forced, and each story escalates in level of erotic content in a way
that makes the stories flow together as a harmonious whole.

In "Wickedly Ever After", the author pairs a sexually experienced hero
with a bad reputation and a bluestocking heroine with combustible
results. The story begins with a naughty dare and continues in the
same vein. The hero teases and coaxes the heroine into bed with a
sense of fun that is far too rare in the subgenre of erotic romance.

"Scandalously Ever After" is a touch more serious. Both the hero and
heroine are in need of some sexual healing, which they gladly find in
one another. This unconventional romance between a war veteran and a
courtesan is tender and seductive. It gets wrapped up with a less
believable happy ending than the other two stories, but it is still a
solid, enjoyable entry in this trilogy.

Format: Paperback
"Wickedly Ever After". Lord Grenville maintains his image as a wastrel while hiding his fondness for translating Roman poetry from the Ton; that is until he meets and kisses Eleanor Palmer BEHIND THE RED DOOR as she loves poetry and the Marquess.

"Sinfully Ever After". Captain Jack Prescott has been haunted by horrific memories until he meets courtesan Calliope whose erotic treatment BEHIND THE RED DOOR gives him new memories and hopes for future memories.

"Scandalously Ever After". Lady Jane St. Clair accepts the proposal from the rake Lord Chester, Gerard Nash, as she has loved him forever, but decides to go BEHIND THE RED DOOR to fulfill their fantasies before and after the wedding.

These are three exciting erotic Regency romances starring fully developed lead protagonists who take readers to the chambers BEHIND THE RED DOOR.

I'm a big fan of historical romance, but I'm also a very picky reader. I like my historical romances to be rich, real, descriptive, and, of course, HOT. This trio of novellas by newcomer Jackie Barbosa hit on every thing I love about the genre. What a pleasant surprise!

Each novella is tied to the Red Door brothel in London. I liked how each of her characters were very distinct people with unique problems. These are stories with depth and feeling. The characters had to work for their happy endings, and I appreciate the intelligence within these 304 pages.

Ms. Barbosa is headed for bigger things, I'm sure. I can't wait for her to come out with a full-length book.

"Wickedly Ever After"

Eleanor Palmer has no intentions of marrying the wicked and lusty Nathaniel St. Clair, the Marquess of Grenville. Going to his home to tell him just that, Eleanor is taken aback by the raw sensuality and passion she finds in Nathaniel's eyes while she is trying to convince him that they would never make a good couple. Eleanor has no idea the feelings that Nathaniel harbors for her, but she does understand the attraction that is seemingly mutual between them. Nathaniel, however, is holding on tightly to a well kept secret - a secret that could end his new relationship with Eleanor immediately.

"Wickedly Ever After" starts out with a bang and ends with a bang. With nothing taboo, Jackie Barbosa's first novella is sensual, passionate, naughty - I could keep going on and on. Nathaniel is one man that knows what he wants and is willing to use what resources he can to get what he wants. And he wants Miss Eleanor Palmer. Grab a cold drink with this novella - you will sweat.

"Scandalously Ever After"

Captain Jack Prescott is a man tormented by dreams and nightmares. Newly returned from service to his country, Jack is unable to rest because of his emotional trauma. At his wit's end, he goes to the Red Door brothel with the hopes of finding a good night's rest. Paying a prostitute to sleep with him is new to Jack, but when he sees Calliope he wants no one's services but hers. Asking for and ultimately paying for a week of her time, Jack figures he will catch up on the sleep he hasn't been able to do except Calliope has other plans. Neither Jack nor Calliope meant to fall in love with the other - especially Calliope, a woman who knows the score.

I fell in love with Jack immediately.
