Amity Lassiter

Sweet Western Heat


Amity Lassiter lives in Eastern Canada with her herding dog, her barn cat, two horses and her Mister. She has loved telling stories her entire life and even before she could write could be found in her grandmother’s basement, reciting fiction into an ancient cassette recorder.


The most influential author in Amity’s life would be Peter S. Beagle, the author of The Last Unicorn, who introduced her to her first achingly impossible love story and made her believe in magic. She met, and shared the most surreal small talk with Beagle in May 2014.


She loves critters, coffee, and cowboys – and she still believes in unicorns.

Suzie O'Connell

Small Towns and Big Hearts


Suzie is the USA Today bestselling the author of thirteen novels (and counting), including the Northstar romances, which are the products of a love affair with Montana that began in her teens with a two-week vacation to her step-sister's rustic cabin. She writes contemporary small town and Western romances, the kind with strong women and big-hearted men helping each other heal—stories that'll grab you by the heart and hold on tight long after the last page.


When she isn’t writing, you’ll probably find Suzie in the mountains with a camera in hand, enjoying the beauty of Montana with her husband Mark, their daughter Maddie, and their golden retriever Reilly.
