Nan Reinhardt

Hi, I’m Nan and I’m a USA Today bestselling author of sweet and sensual romance novels featuring women in their prime. I’m also a wife, a mom, a mother-in-law, and grandmother to an active little boy and two sweet dogs. I’ve been an antiques dealer, a bank teller, a stay-at-home mom, a secretary, and for the last 25 years, I’ve earned my living as a freelance copy editor and proofreader.

But writing is my first and most enduring passion. I can’t remember a time in my life when I wasn’t writing—I wrote my first romance novel at the age of ten. It involved a love story between the most sophisticated person I knew at the time, my older sister (who was in high school!), and a member of Herman’s Hermits. If you know who they are, you’re my audience! I’m still writing romance, but this time from the viewpoint of a wiser, slightly rumpled, woman in her prime instead of a starry-eyed preteen. I live in the Midwest with my husband of 50 years, where we divide our time between a house in the city and a cottage on a lake.

I’ve completed 15 novels; Rule Number One is published and available at and Barnes& The other four, which are part of the Women of Willow Bay series, Once More From the Top, Sex and the Widow MilesThe Summer of Second Chances, and Saving Sarah  are also available in e-book and print at all book retailers. My first River’s Edge series, The Four Irish Brothers Winery, from Tule Publishing, includes A Small Town Christmas, Meant to BeChristmas with You, and The Baby Contract, which are all currently available in e-book and print from all book retailers. The Lange Brothers series–The Valentine Wager, Falling for the Doctor, and The Fireman’s Christmas Wishall released in 2022 and are available in print and e-book from all book retailers. I am hard at work on The Walkers of River’s Edge, a new 4-book series for Tule Publishing, with the first book due out in 2024. In the meantime, watch for the third River’s Edge series, The Weaver Sisters trilogy. Book 1, Home to River’s Edge released April 2023; Meet Me in River’s Edge releases August 17, 2023; and Christmas in River’s Edge releases October 23, 2023–all in print or e-book.
