TASHA ALEXANDER attended the University of Notre Dame, where she signed on as an English major in order to have a legitimate excuse for spending all her time reading. She and her husband, novelist Andrew Grant, divide their time between Chicago and the UK. She is the author of the Lady Emily novels, a series of historical suspense, including Tears of Pearl and Dangerous to Know.
"Author Tasha Alexander is one to watch--and read. . . . despite her cliffhanger climaxes and witty repartee, there's a depth of sensitivity which sets her apart." --The Huffington Post on Dangerous to Know "With wisps of darkness, shadows of a ghost story and embers of heightened Freudian themes, Dangerous to Know is the perfect novel to curl up with and chase away the world." --Examiner.com "Infused with wit and charm, with just the right amounts of danger, romance and detection blended in." --Denver Post on Tears of Pearl "[Tears of Pearl] will please readers of Anne Perry, Laurie R. King, and Deanna Raybourn seeking a new fan-favorite author." --Library Journal on Tears of Pearl "A thoroughly enjoyable adventure with both historical texture and emotional depth." --Anne Perry, New York Times bestselling author on A Fatal Waltz "Alexander's sweetly choreographed plot dances between her wonderfully drawn sleuth, Lady Ashton, and Victorian high society." --Julie Spencer-Fleming, Edgar Award finalist and author of All Mortal Flesh on A Poisoned Season "Alexander excels in depicting the social mores of a society uncomfortable with the independence of women, and deftly allows the plot to develop in tandem with Emily's growth." --The Baltimore Sun on And Only to Deceive
