Zoe Archer is an award-winning romance author who thinks there's nothing sexier than a man in tall boots and a waistcoat. As a child, she never dreamed about being the rescued princess, but wanted to kick butt right beside the hero. She now applies her master's degrees in Literature and Fiction to creating butt-kicking heroines and heroes in tall boots. She is the author of the acclaimed Blades of the Rose, The Hellraisers and Nemesis, Unlimited series. Zoe and her husband, fellow romance author Nico Rosso, trade off writing the books in the steampunk romance series The Ether Chronicles, and live in Los Angeles. Zoe also writes historical romance as Eva Leigh.
