Lani Blake is a small town romance author, coffee addict and chocolate connoisseur (in that order). She's also known as Wendy Vella, a USA Today bestselling author of historical romances, a fact which still makes her head spin!

​She lives waaaay down at the bottom of the globe on an island filled with beautiful scenery, lakes, and close-knit communities. Her home has inspired her to write these stories of idyllic small towns, and the quirky but wonderful people who make up their communities.

She's a sucker for an alpha hero with a heart of gold, who works HARD to deserve the women he falls in love with.

When she's not writing, reading or spending time with her family you'll find her walking the beach with her pup Tilly.
