Katerina Simms is a contemporary romance author and RWA Emerald Award Finalist; originally born on a sunny Mediterranean island, only to move to the weather-challenged suburbs of Melbourne, Australia. Tea addict, nature lover, and sloppy speaker of Russian, Katerina’s novels feature vivid modern settings and heart-stirring characters, punctuated with the occasional good laugh. Her romances skirt the edges of women’s fiction, and her favorite troupes are opposites attract, slow burn, and heat with heart. Two of her author idols are the legendary Nora Roberts and Susan Elizabeth Phillips, though she doesn’t suppose they know who she is.
