Stephanie Bond was several years into a corporate computer programming career when an instructor in her night school MBA program remarked that she had a flair for writing and encouraged her to submit one of her projects to academic journals. "But," Stephanie says, "all I could think was 'I wonder if I could write a romance novel?'" Bond grew up on a farm in eastern Kentucky where the entertainment choices were few. Luckily, she had a beloved aunt who shared her passion for reading. "When she visited once a year, she brought boxes and boxes of gothic novels by Victoria Holt and Phyllis Whitney and lush historical romances--I was in heaven! So suddenly thinking about writing in the genre of the books I loved was very exciting." After writing every spare moment for two years, Stephanie sold her first romantic comedy manuscript, IRRESISTIBLE? to Harlequin books. Two years later, she walked away from her corporate career to write commercial fiction full time. To date, she's published over 60 romance and mystery projects with Random House, St. Martin's Press, HarperCollins, and Mira Books, and is most well-known for her BODY MOVERS humorous mystery series. Her newest series is TWO GUYS DETECTIVE AGENCY (about two sisters whose last name is Guy). Stephanie lives in midtown Atlanta and is probably working on a story at this very moment.
Fortyish Gabrielle Pope created the Red Tote Book Club so that members can enjoy quality passionate novels. She dares the others to re-read their favorite book and use it as a guide to seduce the star of their hottest fantasies. Although each is timid, they all agree to try except Carol Snow.
Architect Cassie Goodwin picks Lady Chatterley's Lover to go after her ex. Reticent administrative assistant Page Sharpe selects Venus in Furs to win the affection and adulation of her boss. Party planner Wendy Trainer chooses as her woman of pleasure Fanny Hill to persuade her best friend she is serious in her desire for him. Auditor Jacqueline Mays cherishes being the submissive slave to her client.
With an erotic nod to Karen Joy Fowler's Jane Austen Book Club, SEDUCTION BY THE BOOK is an engaging thematic anthology as each of the women star in her personalized tale of passion. Although none of the women except Gabrielle are fully developed, fans will enjoy each member's effort to apply the lessons of their book choice to their chosen seduced one.
