Stephanie Haddad

Biography

Stephanie Haddad's earliest works featured unicorns and talking pumpkins who overcame adversity, evil, and the threat of being baked into pies. With age, her writing has evolved to more grown-up topics, like love and the complicated relationships between people. As a life-long lover of cheerful fiction, she strives to tackle real-world issues with wit, hope, and lots of humor. Her short stories have spanned many genres, but her full-length novels stay firmly planted in happy endings, via both romance and women’s fiction.

In 2009, Stephanie joined the Romance Writers of America to celebrate her addiction to perfect plot resolutions with other writers just like her. Combining a passion for the human condition with a penchant for the romantic, Stephanie strives to write every story as though it is a conversation shared between friends.

As she balances new motherhood, a freelance writing workload, and an independent publishing career, Stephanie continues her work on a planned three-book women’s fiction series, a collection of romantic urban fantasy short stories, and several single-title romances. Her first novel, A Previous Engagement, was released in July 2011. She lives, loves, and writes near Boston, MA, the home of all of her novels.

  • The Bride Price on Aug. 09, 2011

    When I first read the summary of this book, I thought to myself, “Okay… how’s this going to work?” Time travel, Civil War battles, spouses reunited in another era… I was fascinated by the concept, but afraid it was all a gimmick. Luckily for me, Tracey Jane Jackson’s first novel in her Cival War Brides series delivers many more punches than just a time portal. Without revealing too much or spoiling it for potential readers, Jamie and Sophie’s story is a heart-warming tale of love overcoming challenges and even time. Their bond is strong and, although it is greatly tested in The Bride Price, it will renew your faith that love conquers all.

  • The Unwilling Bride on Sep. 01, 2011

    I'll start this review by saying that I've never read an inspirational romance before and I had some preconceived notions about the genre that kept me away from it. That said, Candy Little's debut novel, The Unwilling Bride, shattered all those notions and gave me a fresh perspective on how sweet, sultry, and truly romantic this sub-genre can really be. The spirituality of this story is not overwhelming, not unbelievable, and not in your face. It's a gentle thread woven throughout their story and helps them triumph some pretty tough obstacles. Without giving too much away, Caitlin and Dillon's story is the kind that warms your heart and gives you hope. Read the full review at http://loveonthebookshelf.wordpress.com
  • Sail Beyond Tomorrow on Sep. 17, 2011

    Modern but mystical, Sail Beyond Tomorrow tells the story of two parallel romances: professors Susan and Richard and their widowed parents, Nate and Kathy (respectively). Welch does an excellent job developing two very different relationships and balancing the attention between them. From the passionate love of Susan and Richard, the reader gets a deep, involved romance. And from the second-time-arounders Nate and Kathy, we see hope for the painful and challenging later years, when mortality seems to play a bigger role than discovering romance. Still, these four characters each have something to share with the reader and each has his or her own lesson to learn. Add to the mix a plot riddled with past demons coming back to haunt our heroes, plus an ancient foretelling that may (or may not?) come true… Sail Beyond Tomorrow gets you thinking and feeling all at once.

  • Double Occupancy on Dec. 27, 2011

    In Double Occupancy, Chase does well by her characters, giving them room in their close-quartered villa to really express themselves and draw the reader into their love story. Their witty banter will have you laughing but their hot and steamy moments will have you begging for more. By isolating her hero and heroine like this, Chase has given the reader the chance to indulge in a R&R too, focusing on the budding relationship between Travis and Casey. Get lost in this story as though you’re resting up in the villa for yourself… I found it pretty hard to put this one down and climb back into the real world, myself!

  • Love By Design on Jan. 11, 2012

    In Love by Design, Liz Matis tells the story of former party-girl turned successful interior designer Victoria Bryce. As the co-host of a design show (think Trading Spaces), she’s in need of a new partner… apparently on camera and off. Enter “saucy Aussie” Russ Rowland and the sparks are flying. But Victoria and Russ have both their egos and their pasts to get past in order for something like this to work. Before you know it, this sizzling pair have a laundry list of reasons not to be together. Although you may find yourself rolling your eyes at their transparent resistance from time to time, Matis’s characterizations never fail to be realistic. Don’t we all make excuses for ourselves not to do something we know is good for us from time to time? And given how much is at stake for these two, especially the stripper scandal (you’ll see), it’s no small wonder that they’ve got to think twice. But with all that chemistry Matis flawlessly cooks up between them, yikes! There are some truly spicy scenes in here that won’t leave you doubting the perfect pairing of these troubled characters.
