Bestselling Silhouette Desire author and Rita finalist Emilie Rose has sold 27 projects to Harlequin/Silhouette since her first sale in 2001, and her books have been released in over 20 countries around the globe.Emilie lives in her native North Carolina with her four sons and two adopted mutts. Writing is her third (and hopefully her last) career. She’s managed a medical office and run a home day care, neither of which offers half as much satisfaction as plotting happy endings. Her hobbies include gardening and cooking (especially cheesecake).Her favorite TV shows include Grey’s Anatomy, ER, CSI, Dancing with the Stars, American Idol and Discovery Channel’s medical programs. Emilie’s a rabid country music fan because she can find an entire book in almost any song.
