Meet the Author. . .


Cecelia Mecca is the bestselling author of steamy historical romance and also writes PNR as C.L. Mecca and contemporary romance as Bella Michaels. Armed with a Ph.D. and lots of chai, she spends her days weaving tales which whisk readers to another time and place.

With over twenty-five published historical romance novels which take readers to an admittedly romanticized time of knights and castles and to small towns in her contemporary and paranormal series, Cecelia is always thinking up new ways to tame both medieval and contemporary and bad boys.

Our Highlander-loving author, who is firmly House Stark and Gryffindor, can be found in Northeast, Pennsylvania with her husband and two tweens.
