Grayson Cole: The Delicious Dark Side of Love

About Grayson

Grayson Cole is an author obsessed with language, love and the fantastic. She is intrigued by the relationships people build and what makes them work. Grayson hopes to bring intense and engaging characters to life for her readers along with well-developed,  interesting stories.

Though a complete romantic at heart, Grayson's first major novel, Bright Star, flexed her fantasy/horror muscle and released to outstanding reviews with Lyrical Press, Inc in 2008. Reviews for this dark fantasy have been outstanding . The follow up, Domina, is much anticipated.

Expressing her softer, more romantic side, Grayson released The Builder and The Prescription Playboy, both of which are about strong women who recognize and welcome love, yet still have to struggle to acknowledge its place in their lives.

In June 2011, she polarized you with the intense interracial romance, Inside Out. In November she released her first romantic suspense, Caress.

She returns to the world of fantasy in her next novella The Lovers' Opalus: The Empire.
