About Maddie

A USA Today and #1 International Bestselling Author, Maddie is a lifelong reader who became a romance junky as a teen with her first romance novel, The Wolf and the Dove by Kathleen Woodiwiss. From then on she was hooked and gobbled up everything she could get her hands on, whether contemporary romance, historical, paranormal, or sci-fi. If there was a romance to be found between a strong alpha male and a sassy, adventurous, and often defiant, yet loving woman, Maddie was all over it. As an author, she stays true to those themes writing steamy romance and adding elements of intrigue, danger, and suspense to her plots. 

Maddie started writing as a hobby. Her stories stayed private while she raised a family and worked full time as a registered nurse. It wasn't until 2012 that she decided to take the plunge and submit her first manuscript for publication, Captain My Captain. She went on to publish eleven novels the first year and will soon release her 50th book by the end of 2018.


Chicks Dig Tattoos


A study out of the Medical College

of Poland tells us what 

we've long suspected. 

Chicks dig tattoos!

I know I do... yum!

The men and women in the study were shown pictures of men with tattoos and asked to rate them (so this is a 'judging the book by the cover' only study) on the following factors:


Attractiveness to women




Potential as a good partner or parent


Here's what they found.


Women rated the tatted men healthier,

but not more or less attractive

than those without ink.




Men think guys with tattoos 

are more attractive to women,

and they see these men

as a threat to getting the girl. 


If this is true, it explains why displaying

ink has grown in popularity. 

Would you have coffee with him? Uh, yeah!!!




Both men and women thought ink represented

masculinity, dominance, and aggression.




Women saw men with tattoos as good partners,

but only for a short-term,

not particularly marriage

or father of the year candidates.



So, when you're looking for that hot and steamy one nighter, maybe you should let the tattoo be your guide. But remember, its all about perception and you can't necessarily judge what's inside by that gorgeous tatted up cover. 



Which would you choose?
