A day in the life of Romance Author Maya Rodale
I spend my days writing historical and contemporary romance novels—and taking breaks from fictional worlds to peruse the internet and chat with readers. You can find me on Twitter, Facebook or right here!
I am a morning person, which means I rise early, drink a cup of strong tea, read the news and make a to-do list for my day.
I also do yoga in the morning. This picture is not me and not something I can do...yet!
Then I go write in a café (but only if it’s nice out). Otherwise, I write in bed or at my desk. I usually take my laptop, rather than pen and paper as the heroines of my historical Wallflower novels would do.
I take breaks to walk my dog, @LadyMissPenny
In the evenings, I go out on the town in New York City! My adventures out on the town inspired my Bad Boy Billionaire romances. However, I don’t stay out too late—see above about being a morning person!
The third installment of a sexy, whirlwind romance about a modern day heroine writing historical romance novels based on her romantic misadventures with the bad boy billionaire.
Jane Sparks had it all…almost.
Everyone knew that Jane Sparks had been dumped by her high school sweetheart and fired from her job, which is why she was really looking forward to attending her high school reunion as a successful romance novelist with her hot billionaire boyfriend as her date. But a violent encounter with her ex-boyfriend changes everything.
Duke Austen was the luckiest guy in town…almost
Duke Austen is a blue-eyed charmer with a bad boy reputation and ambitious plans for his future—after two failed startups, this tech entrepreneur is about to celebrate the $20 billion IPO of his company—but it no longer matters when the woman he loves has been hurt. Stranded in his apartment during a hurricane without electricity, they must rebuild their trust…and fall in love all over again.
Just when they have it all figured out, Jane and Duke are forced to decide what matters more: facing her past or celebrating his successful future.

When he cowardly pushes her out of their stagecoach to divert a highwayman, she vows never to trust another man again.

When he finds himself stranded at a country inn with a captivating young woman, a delicate dance of seduction ensues. He knows he should keep his distance. He definitely shouldn’t start falling in love with her.
When Prudence’s dark past comes back to haunt her, John must protect her—even though in doing so, he risks revealing his own secrets that could destroy his future.
