Marilyn Pappano

USA flag

aka Rachel Butler

With more than two dozen books and nearly four million copies of her romances in print, Marilyn Pappano is well known for her intensely emotional, sensual stories. She has made regular appearances on bestseller lists and has received recognition for her work with several awards, including the prestigious Maggie Award, Romantic Times magazine's Career Achievement Award, and numerous Reviewer's Choice Awards. Her husband's navy career led to six moves over sixteen years, but now, following his retirement, they've made their final move back to their home state of Oklahoma. When not writing, Marilyn enjoys cross-stitching, working in the garden, and the view from the back porch of the hilltop home she shares with her husband and son.
