About the Author: Mary Jo Putney

She writes young adult fiction as M.J. Putney.

Mary Jo Putney was born in Upstate New York with a reading addiction, a condition for which there is no known cure. After earning degrees in English Literature and Industrial Design at Syracuse University, she did various forms of design work in California and England before inertia took over in Baltimore, Maryland, where she has lived very comfortably ever since.

While becoming a novelist was her ultimate fantasy, it never occurred to her that writing was an achievable goal until she acquired a computer for other purposes. When the realization hit that a computer was the ultimate writing tool, she charged merrily into her first book with an ignorance that illustrates the adage that fools rush in where angels fear to tread.

Fortune sometimes favors the foolish and her first book sold quickly, thereby changing her life forever, in most ways for the better. (“But why didn't anyone tell me that writing would change the way one reads?”) Like a lemming over a cliff, she gave up her freelance graphic design business to become a full-time writer as soon as possible.

Since 1987, Ms. Putney has published twenty-nine books and counting. Her stories are noted for psychological depth and unusual subject matter such as alcoholism, death and dying, and domestic abuse. She has made all of the national bestseller lists including the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, USAToday, and Publishers Weekly. Five of her books have been named among the year’s top five romances by The Library Journal. The Spiral Path and Stolen Magic were chosen as one of Top Ten romances of their years by Booklist, published by the American Library Association.

A nine-time finalist for the Romance Writers of America RITA, she has won RITAs for Dancing on the Wind and The Rake and the Reformer and is on the RWA Honor Roll for bestselling authors. She has been awarded two Romantic Times Career Achievement Awards, four NJRW Golden Leaf awards, plus the NJRW career achievement award for historical romance. Though most of her books have been historical, she has also published three contemporary romances. The Marriage Spell will be out in June 2006 in hardcover, and Stolen Magic (written as M. J. Putney) will be released in July 2006.

Ms. Putney says that not least among the blessings of a full-time writing career is that one almost never has to wear pantyhose.

Gwynne pertenece al linaje de los Guardianes, familias poseedoras de poderes mágicos que velan desde hace siglos por la paz en Gran Bretaña. A pesar de eso aún no ha desarrollado ningún poder propio, y se contenta con su tranquila y apartada vida de bibliotecaria. Cuando entra en su vida Duncan McCrae, poderoso Guardián escocés, se siente arrollada por su tremenda pasión y fuerza desmedida. No hace falta magia alguna para que ambos jóvenes se sientan irremediablemente atraídos el uno por el otro, pero no desea atarse a alguien tan poderoso. Sin embargo, el Consejo de los Guardianes decide por ella: ha de acceder a ser la esposa de Duncan, puesto que las visiones anuncian que sólo ella podrá evitar que el escocés lleve a todo el país a una guerra catastrófica. La joven se ve obligada a aceptar un plan que la llevará a traicionar a su amor. Atrapada entre el deber y el corazón ¿Será capaz?.
