About Averil Reisman
Averil Reisman enjoyed a long career as a journalist before turning her talent toward writing fiction. As a journalist, she has written for newspapers, computer industry trade journals, not-for-profits, magazines, and early internet and touchscreen ventures before finding her true writing passion--romance.
She turned her love of ferreting out a news story into a love of research, and often finds herself lost in books, the internet, and libraries before writing a single word.
She now considers writing romance her full time job, and is at her desk every day in a study filled with books. Had she known the joy of writing romance, she would have started earlier in her career.

A finalist in the Romance through the Ages contest, Memories and Moonbeams is a standalone love story in The Chessmen series--steamy, emotional stories of strong late Victorian heroines and the men who love them.
She came seeking a temporary husband, something no client had ever requested. But when an assassin set his sights on her, the job became more than just a case of smoke and mirrors. Now it was life or death.
Scientist Emmeline Griffith needed to be someone’s Mrs. just long enough to prevent the loss of her inheritance. The arrangement would be all business--a marriage in-name-only, a grand subterfuge lasting only a few months. But where would she find such an unusual husband? With the marriage deadline looming, she turned in desperation to the only man her beloved uncle trusted enough to recommend--private investigator Bartholomew Turner.
Bart Turner’s clients didn’t usually seek temporary husbands. So, when the mysterious Miss Griffith asked him to find her one, he naturally turned her down. But as she left his office, someone had the audacity to shoot her right on his own front steps. Now, not only did she need a temporary husband, but she needed a professional protector as well. And someone with the skills to discover who wanted her dead. In short, she needed him. And if he were to accomplish his mission, he must accept the contract she offered.
But odd as it seemed, the arrangement was perfect. Neither Emmie nor Bart wanted a real marriage. His demons still haunted his nightmares; his world of hunting murderers was far too dangerous for someone he might love. And for Emmie, a real husband would take away her freedom and squelch her pursuit of scientific endeavors, one of which was on the cusp of success.
But, as the embers of attraction unexpectedly burst into blazing passion, one insidious truth became evident. Someone had been slowly killing off Emmie’s family and close friends. And she was next on the killer’s list.
Heat level: Steamy.
