Willa Lambert

WILLA LAMBERT began writing romances back in 1979 when she was contracted by American Art Enterprises to do three books, now considered classics and pulp-book "collector" editions - LOVE'S COURAGE, HOUSE OF THE BRAVE BULLS, and VANESSA IN WHITE MARBLE - for its Carousel Romances imprint.

In 1980, when Harlequin® was looking for published authors to launch its new SuperRomance®, in an effort to increase the "heat" level above and beyond that achieved by any of its previously released books, its Senior Editor George Glay brought in Willa to provide the new imprint with its all-important steamy second book, LOVE'S EMERALD FLAME, which became an international best-seller in over ten foreign-languages ... soon followed by Willa's FROM THIS BELOVED HOUR and LOVE'S GOLDEN SPELL.

Since then, Willa has published five additional romances - EMERALD-SILK INTRIGUE, JUNGLE-QUEST INTRIGUE, MOON-STONE INTRIGUE (for Heritage), HEART ON FIRE (for Wildside/Borgo), DARE TO LOVE IN OZ (for Savant).

This book, AFRICA: SPICE ISLAND LOVE, launches Willa's contracted Seven-Continent series of romances exclusively for Passion in Print which she hopes to supplement, along the way, with other PIPP romances written by her that will stand independently from this particular series.

Always open to her fans, they can usually reach Willa at:
