Unapologetic Romances Because Love Needs No Excuses

Growing up in Germany, I've always had a passion for myths and fairytales. No surprise then that I married an Irishman and lived 6 years in Ireland, the country of Leipreachán, Sidhe, Púca and other fascinating creatures. There's nothing like walking at night through a deserted laneway, fog swirling around your feet, knowing that maybe, just maybe, on the other side of the hedge, there might be some old lady in a black cloak waiting for you...

If you got the shivers right now, you know why I feel compelled to write stories around the supernatural and paranormal. There's nothing like a delicious shudder making you enjoy life just a little more... Plus I'm a romantic.

So look forward to modern romantic stories set against the background of ancient myths and legends. Hope you enjoy reading them as much as I enjoy writing them!

~~As part of the Unapologetic Romances brand, I also write m/m romance as EJ Smyth. You can find me on and Love is love is love. And love needs no excuses.
