Meet Tara Lain

Author of the Beautiful Boys of Romance, contemporary and paranormal romance novels that star unique, charismatic heroes

I believe in happy ever afters – and magic. Same thing. And I’ve been blessed in my life to know this is true. I love sharing this passion in stories that star my Beautiful Boys of Romance — unique, charismatic heroes —  and an adventurous heroine or two. I write serious themes with a light touch and readers often call my books “sweet” no matter how spicy they get. Quarterbacks and cops, werewolves and witches, blue collar or billionaires, I want my characters to love deeply, resolve seemingly insurmountable differences, and ultimately live their lives authentically.

Tara Lain, like so many novelists, wrote her first book at five. Writing ability got her through college when there wasn’t enough time in the day, and, shortly thereafter, it became a marketable skill. Very early in life, people started paying her to write — scripts for industrial films, brochures, magazine articles on semiconductors. She became a really successful non-fiction “ghost-writer” and marketing expert.

But then Tara found romance. Always a lover of fantasy, she got hooked on the beauty, emotion, and happy-ever-after of these books (to say nothing of the great sex) and was finally inspired to write one of her own. Her very first book was accepted by a wonderful publisher and that was 45 books ago!

While Tara is closely associated with southern California where she’s set many of her books, she recently changed that. Together with her soulmate husband and her soulmate Dog, she realized a vision to live where there were a lot more trees and a lot fewer cars by moving to Ashland, Oregon. Today, happily ensconced near the woods at the top of a steep hill with deer in her yard, she loves living in a small town with big culture. Likely a Gryffindor but possessed of Parseltongue, Tara loves animals of all kinds, diversity, open minds, coconut crunch ice cream from Zoeys, and her readers.
