Summer Devon aka Kate Rothwell (born September 25)

Summer Devon is the alter ego Kate Rothwell who invented Summer's name in the middle of a nasty blizzard. At the time she was talking to her sister who longed to visit some friends in Devon, England--so the name Summer Devon is all about desire. Between them Kate and Summer have written books that have been a Romantic Time's Reviewer's Choice Nominee and a two time finalist in the Passionate Plume Award as well as other awards.

Kate Rothwell grew up in Washington, D.C. She went to art school in Boston, where she met her husband who is a scientist.

Kate has worked as a service manager/parts runner in a Saab garage, an artists' model, a day care center child care provider, a sales clerk, a bartender in an Irish bar in Boston (green beer on St. Patrick's day), a reporter, a feature writer, a food prep chef (3 days), a cross-stitch kit instructions writer, a publisher and editor of a newspaper for children, a substitute teacher (for about a month). She has two undergraduate degrees from two colleges.

She and her husband and three kids live in Connecticut.

She is published with Kensington, Samhain, Simon and Schuster, Ellora's Cave, Total-e-bound, Liquid Silver, Loose Id, Carina Publishing and on her own.

The Nobleman and the Spy by Bonnie Dee & Summer Devon won a 2011 Rainbow Award, 3rd place, as Best LGBT Historical.

They once faced each other on a battlefield. Now soldier-turned-spy Jonathan Reese must keep watch over the man he's never forgotten. A close encounter reveals Karl von Binder, the count's son, also recalls the day he spared Jonathan's life.

Sparks fly between the former enemies and Jonathan begins to lose perspective on his mission. He knows he must maintain distance because the heat he encounters in Karl's touch stirs him far too deeply for his own good. He can't keep away -- especially when he suspects someone is trying to kill the nobleman.

The spy becomes a protector as Jonathan guards the man he's begun to care for. Together the men try to puzzle out who would benefit from Karl's death -- and how much they're willing to trust each other when a torrid sexual fling threatens to become an affair of the heart.
