More About the Author

USA Today bestselling author Stephanie Rowe is the author of more than 40 novels, including her popular Order of the Blade and NightHunter paranormal romance series, and her sizzling new Wyoming Rebels cowboy series about nine rugged brothers. Stephanie is a four-time nominee of the RITA® Award, the highest award in romance fiction. She has won many awards for her novels, including the prestigious Golden Heart® Award. She has received coveted starred reviews from Booklist, and Publishers Weekly has called her work "[a] genre-twister that will make readers...rabid for more."

In additional to her paranormal romances, Stephanie also writes a thrilling romantic suspense series set in Alaska. Publisher's Weekly praised the series debut, ICE, as a "thrilling entry into romantic suspense," and Fresh Fiction called ICE an "edgy, sexy and gripping thriller." Equally as intense and sexy are Stephanie's contemporary romance novels.

A life-long reader, Stephanie began crafting stories at age ten, but didn't realize it was her dream until she was an adult. Once the light dawned, she immediately left behind "work" as the world defines it and went to "work" as she defines it, which means getting up every morning with a smile in her heart so she can spend the day doing that which makes her spirit sing.

Stephanie believes in learning to listen to your heart in order to figure out what your dreams are, and then opening yourself to the inspiration that will direct you there. She believes we all deserve the right to enjoy life, and for the ride to be as easy as we want it to be, and that we all should accept nothing less than making our dreams come true.

Stephanie lives in New England, and spends every day doing her best to fill it with people, observations and activities that uplift her soul, which include writing, hiking with her rescue dog, friends, and her amazing family.

Read this book if you crave something different, crazy, amazing, funny and totally not your average stereotypical romance. Kiss at Your Own Risk simply blew my mind with its off the wall humor, bizarre and astounding world building and a pace that kept me goggle-eyed.

With this story, Ms. Rowe has fried my neurons because I have no clue how she kept such an intricate, diabolical and convoluted story thread from exploding into chaos. Where do I even start?

Trinity, the heroine, is the most likely place to start. Her life is complicated. I mean totally and completely off the scale complicated. The poor woman can't ever hope to have a normal married life because something happened to her when she was a baby that changed the course of her life. And oh, didn't I get a big shocker about that later in the book. Just wait until readers get a load of that revelation. In the meantime I got to meet Trinity's friend, Reina. She's a friend only a black widow could have and love. That kind of friendship was a stroke of genius on Ms. Rowe's part because it in itself is tricky. It's all in who you know and Trinity is surrounded by some really freaky characters that will a delight a reader who appreciates a vivid imagination. This author delivers that in spades.

Trinity has some well documented conflicts that absolutely keep a reader interested. How in the world can she possibly ever have a happily ever after if every guy meets his demise? Sure puts a damper on her love life and yet, Ms. Rowe found the answer. It's unconventional, a bit morbid and totally perfect for this story. It's so twisted, it's funny.

Blaine is one hot hunk of a guy. Until I read the book through, I didn't realize how true that dishy adjective would be.

Let me start by saying I have read a lot of paranormal romance. With this book I felt like the writing was all over the place and the plot was just plain stupid. One of the other reviews said the plot was so stupid it works....That should be your first sign. The story line is strange in too many ways to list and the writing is subpar. This is one paranormal romance I wish I would have skipped and I am glad it was free.

I didn't hate this book, but I didn't really like it either. With paranormal novels, as a reader you have to let go of the reality you know and trust in your author to weave a new world for you. This world, though different from the one we currently reside in, still needs to make sense for the reader to fully emerge themselves into the story and believe in the plot and the characters. The world in Kiss At Your Own Risk didn't make sense. Not at all.

I give Stephani Rowe credit for thinking creatively and coming up with some interesting characters, but the whole book was completely unbelievable and ridiculous to me. The basic plot was actually fine to me: Trinity, who is cursed as a black widow kills every man she falls in love with. If she kills five men, then she will remain a black widow forever. Four have been killed already, and she's got one week to go till the curse is up. Blaine has been a prisoner of the witch who cursed Trinity since he was four years old. When he and he two friends escape, they leave behind a fourth and Blaine vows to return and save him. Blaine finds and teams up with Trinity because he knows only she, as a black widow, will know how to kill the witch.

Basic plot line is fine and actually could have been very interesting. Except for everything else going on in this book that made it so hard to work my head around. Like Blaine, who is composed of fire apparently and shoots any color flames out of him. He can apparently fall off buildings but miraculously land fine if he creates an explosion and uses the back force to propel him in the opposite direction. Huh?

Devilishly divine. Kiss At Your Own Risk is brilliantly fun, fast-paced and delightful.

Stephanie Rowe is to paranormal what Janet Evanovich is to mystery; laugh-out-loud fun and a non-stop tilt-a-whirl ride of excitement. I cannot express how much enjoyment Kiss At Your Own Risk brought to me. I literally found myself laughing out loud in the nice quiet library, while I read. Yes, for me, it was that humorous. I do have to admit that when I began reading the first few pages, I was thinking to myself "What in the world is this?!" The idea of men obsessed with cross-stitching and all things girly was a bit out there, even for me. However, once I read a bit further, I had no doubts that I was going to love this book. So, be warned, the very beginning may make you step back, but hold on, it is awesome.

Men, sex slaves, torture, the goal to make every one of the male species perfect and worthy of a woman. Yes, that is the goal of Angelica (the wicked witch, if you will). This is what Blaine Underhill and his friends have had to endure for the past century and a half. After coming together with a plan to escape, they finally find themselves free from the torture chamber of hell. However one thing went terribly wrong, Blaine's best friend did not make it out and is still left enslaved by the diva witch of all things unholy. Blaine will stop at nothing until he is able to rescue his friend and set him free.

Trinity Harpswell has had to live with a curse her entire life - if she falls in love, she has to kill the man she loves. Not such a great thing for a long term relationship. Trinity is a Black Widow and will remain so permanently after her fifth kill.
