Courtney Milan burst onto the romance writing scene a few years ago – and has taken historical romance by storm.  Milan writes strong female characters, flawed male heroes, and compelling story lines.  She is often compared to Eloisa James and Lisa Kleypas.

You can check out her website here.

Alameda County Library has Milan’s books available through Overdrive, so you can read them online.  Overdrive is available here, and the directions to use it are available here.
