Patricia Paris is a best-selling, multi-award-winning author of six contemporary romance novels, including her newest release, Lucia, the first title in the Bonavera series.


Known for creating memorable characters in both her small-town contemporary novels and romantic suspense novels alike, and for writing warm, sexy stories with a touch of humor, she has taken home honors for Lucia (East Texas Writers' Guild), Run Rachael Run (USA Best Book News and The Kindle Book Review), and This Time Forever (The Kindle Book Review).


Patricia lives in the Chesapeake Bay area of Maryland with her husband John, a very lazy but lovable cat named Shiloh, and James Brown, aka JB, the baddest (but also lovable) dog in town. When not writing you'll most likely find her exploring the bay, battling the weeds that insist on invading her gardens, or experimenting with a new recipe in her kitchen.


Patricia admits to being an unapologetic romantic, who loves to give her readers that happily ever after, every time. She is currently busy at work on the next Bonavera novel, Caterina, coming soon.


  • The writing was simply gripping. I couldn't put the book down. ~ Readers' Favorite (Run Rachael Run)


  • …her story feeds the imagination of sisterly love and support. I would recommend you enjoy Lucia for a good read and don't be surprised if you find yourself going to a vineyard for a tasting.   ~ Charlene Ossman (Lucia)


  • Return to Glebe Point is one of those books to curl up and read in front of a warm fire or when sitting in the sunshine on vacation. ~ In D'tale Magazine (Return to Glebe Point)


  • Patricia Paris has written a delightful cast of characters that have good times, bad times, and some real punches to the gut that will have readers holding back tears. This is a great read for those looking for a contemporary romance with a healthy dose of depth.  ~ The San Francisco Book Review (This Time Forever)
