BIO

Sari Robins was born and raised in New York, married a Southern gentleman, and lives with her family in Georgia. She is a tax attorney with a Masters at Laws in Taxation. Before changing careers, Sari worked for Delta Air Lines and a premiere tax advocacy trade association.

In 2000 Sari realized that deep inside her beat the heart of an author. Now, while using her legal skills to navigate the business of publishing, she also gets to be more creative than she ever could have been with a legal brief. She loves writing fiction, particularly narratives set in the era Jane Austen made famous, England's Regency period (1811-1820).

Sari's newest book, THE GOVERNESS WEARS SCARLET, is the latest installment in her Andersen Hall series which began with ONE WICKED NIGHT (July 2004) and MORE THAN A SCANDAL (July 2005). All of her books can be read on their own or as part of the series. Prior to those publications, Sari wrote her debut novel, HER SCANDALOUS INTENTIONS (12/02) followed by ALL MEN ARE ROGUES (8/03). Her other recent books include books in the Andersen Hall series, WHEN SEDUCING A SPY and WHAT TO WEAR TO A SEDUCTION.

In addition to appearing on CBS Sunday Morning nationally, some of the media that Sari has been in includes: SEASON Magazine; Atlanta Journal Constitution's Peach Buzz column; Atlanta Woman Magazine; CHAI Magazine; POINTS NORTH Magazine; The Jewish Times; LILITH Magazine; The Northside Neighbor; Atlanta Journal Constitution; Associated Press; and others.

Sari believes in supporting worthwhile causes. Some examples of her efforts include: donating autographed copies of her books as part of a special kickoff brunch for champions for charity for The Lymphatic Research Foundation; helping to raise money to support victims of Katrina; donating books to ART Station for its annual fundraiser--The Raising of the Green; donating autographed copies of her books for a books basket raffle and auction in support of the Kalamazoo YWCA's Domestic Violence Program with 100% of the proceeds going directly to the shelter; participating in Chapter 11's Books to Baghdad program; and participating in the annual "Readers For Life" Literacy Autographing hosted by the Romance Writers of America with the proceeds of all sales going to literacy charities.

THE NEWEST INSTALLMENT IN THE ANDERSEN HALL SERIES

THE GOVERNESS WEARS SCARLET

A passion like theirs won't stay secret for long

Haunted by a terrible tragedy, Viscount Jason Steele roams the streets of London as a masked vigilante. One starlit night, he rescues a veiled young woman. . . and she unleashes a fiery passion he'd thought long dead. Though they explore every inch of each other's bodies, they must keep their faces hidden, for an illicit affair could have dangerous consequences for them both . . .

In the harsh light of day, Jason's primary concern is hiring a governess to care for his two young nephews. He has no idea that Abigail West is the tantalizing woman he meets under the cover of darkness each night. But when they discover a kidnapping plot that could plunge them all into mortal danger, Jason and Abigail will be forced to reveal themselves . . . and lay bare their incredible, explosive attraction for all the world to see.

WHEN SEDUCING A SPY

The A B C's of Seducing A Spy:
Acquire a connection
Beg an introduction
Charm and Disarm
Egage the senses
Flirt for all you are worth

WHEN SEDUCING A SPY

Heath Bartlett doesn't want to believe that his childhood friend had any part in the dastardly crime he's investigating--but the bewitching, intoxicating beauty is certainly hiding something. And he will do whatever necessary to uncover the truth.

The ton sees her merely as the castoff of a disreputable rake. In truth, Lady Tessa Golding is protecting her own secret, so she dares not surrender to Heath's intimate temptations - despite that when Heath comes within arm's reach of Tessa, passions flare. Though the danger to the Crown is too great, and the threat to their vulnerable hearts even greater . . . when a passion this heated is unleashed, sometimes even the strongest must submit.

WHAT TO WEAR TO A SEDUCTION

"What does one wear to a proper seduction?"

Edwina groaned as she stared at her reflection in the tall gilded mirror. "And what now? I'm putting on the clothing simply to have it taken off."

And why would proper Lady Edwina Ross dress to seduce "London's Perfect Lover"? Because Prescott Devane, the notorious rogue, is the only one who can help the desperate lady with her scheme to catch a blackmailing fiend. Because no one else could play the role of a love-struck fiancé so convincingly. Because a faux engagement, secrets, the threat of scandal, and the promise of untapped passions are too tantalizing to ignore. Because, if the need arises, every woman should know what to wear to a seduction . . .



MORE THAN A SCANDAL

A passion that is less than lawful and

MORE THAN A SCANDAL

Lovely Catherine Miller has always been timid--until the treachery of unscrupulous cousins threatens her childhood home. But her discovery of the journal of the notorious "Thief of Robinson Square" has given the resourceful lady a plan. To exact a righteous vengeance, she will don the mantle of this "Robin Hood" who, years ago, preyed on pompous Society. She doesn't realize, however, that the one man in London who has sworn to stop her is the man she has loved in secret since she was twelve!

An important mission to unmask a traitor has brought Major Marcus Dunn back to Catherine Miller, only to find that the shy, awkward girl he remembers is now an enticing young woman with a spirit as strong as his. But the tempting enchantress guards a secret, and Marcus fears his desire for her could expose his own--and send them both careening recklessly toward a passionate love far more perilous than mere scandal.
