Grown-up love stories, because we're never too old for a little sexy romance…

Nan Reinhardt

Hi, I’m Nan and I’m a USA Today bestselling author of sexy romance novels for older women. Yeah, women still have sex, even after 45! Imagine!  I’m also a wife, a mom, a mother-in-law, and grandmother to an active little boy and a sweet golden retriever. I’ve been an antiques dealer, a bank teller, a stay-at-home mom, a secretary, and for the last fifteen years, I’ve earned my living as a freelance copyeditor 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, menopausal woman instead of a starry-eyed preteen.

I’ve completed five novels; Rule Number One is published and available at and Barnes& The other three, which are part of the Women of Willow Bay series, Once More From the Top ( and Barnes&, Sex and the Widow Miles ( and Barnes&, and The Summer of Second Chances ( and Barnes& are also available. My newest book, Saving Sarah ( and Barnes& is the fourth book in the Women of Willow Bay series. Like Jo March (Little Women), I write late at night, after the editing gig work is finished for the day and my household is asleep.
