Sandy Loyd
Romances With Twists

Sandy Loyd is a Western girl through and through. Born and raised in Salt Lake City, she's worked and lived in some fabulous places in the US, including South Florida. An empty nester, she now resides in Kentucky and writes full time in several romance genres, contemporary romance, romantic suspense, & historical romance. As much as she loves her current hometown, she misses the mountains and has to go back to her roots to get her mountain fix at least once a year. Otherwise her muse suffers.

She spent her single years in San Francisco and considers that city one of America's treasures, comparable to no other city in the world. Her California Series, starting out with Winter Interlude, are all set in the Bay Area. Her series consists of fun, heartwarming stories about crazy friends who, like single people everywhere, are seeking that someone special to share their lives with among thousands of eligible candidates.

Sandy's first published first romantic suspense novel, The Sin Factor, book one in the DC Badboys Series, is set in another wonderful US city, Washington, DC. Raising the Stakes, book two takes place in Las Vegas.

She has since published two more romantic suspense novels set in fictional towns in Kentucky to give a reader a feel for small-town living. Running From Love's setting showcases the state's caves and lakes.

In total, Sandy has published close to two dozen novels, all with heart-stopping suspense and full of the twists and turns she loves, plus the romance that makes the world go 'round.

Do you remember your mother telling you when you were little that you’d never meet Mr. Right if you were spending all your time and energy with Mr. Wrong? And what about the book out a few years ago that created such a hoopla with the single crowd - He’s Just Not That Into You? The two main characters in Winter Interlude either didn’t heed their mother’s advice or haven’t read the book. Now, add into the plot that the two in question are enemies who regularly run into each other, given their current relationships. Paul Morrison, a hunky, blond, financial planner, has been putting time and energy into winning the heart of Kate Winter’s best friend for almost as long as Kate, a strong willed antiques dealer, has been dating James Morrison, Paul’s brother. The sparks start to fly when the two get stuck together for a three-hour drive to the mountains and years of misconceptions about each other are slowly being wiped out. It is in the confines of the BMW that the two begin their journey, taking them from being mortal enemies to lovers.

Winter Interlude tells the story of their adventure - of how they finally find love. Kate and Paul’s story is the first one in a series of four friends caught in a time warp. They can’t move on because they are stuck on their idea of their perfect dreams. But sometimes life works in mysterious ways and they are all forced by circumstances to change.
