    Alyssa Cole is the featured author for Knitted Wit's August HerStory yarn and book club.  Considered a Jacqueline-of-all-trades as far as romance writers are concerned, she's written historical romance, speculative romance, royal romance and even non-romance thrillers and graphic novels.  Her books don't shy away from addressing the very real issues and concerns of a Black woman in the era in which the book is written, but have no fear, each of her stories is suffused with a beautiful optimism.  Because these are, after all, romance books, and the very definition of
    romance means that they must end with an HEA (Happily Ever After).

    Alyssa Cole is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of romance and thrillers.  She has been honored with the 2021 Edgar Allen Poe Award for Best Paperback Original and the Strand Critics Award for Best Debut.  Her Civil War-set espionage romance, An Extraordinary Union, was the American Library Assoc. RUSA Best Romance for 2018.  In addition, her contemporary royal romcom, A Princess in Theory, was one of the New York Times' 100 Notable Books of 2018.  It is the Reluctant Royals series that inspired this month's colorway.  So throw caution to the wind and create a lovely shawl that will wrap you in romance!
