Zo Archer is a bestselling romance author who believes that nothing is more seductive than a man dressed in tall boots and a waistcoat. She never imagined herself as the rescued princess as a youngster, preferring instead to kick butt right alongside the hero. Her master's degrees in literature and fiction are now put to work crafting butt-kicking heroines and tall-booted heroes. She is the bestselling author of the Blades of the Rose trilogy and the historical paranormal book The Hellraisers. Zo lives in Los Angeles with her husband, fellow romance author Nico Rosso.
