Both a USA Today best-selling author and New York Times Best Seller, Stacey’s sub-genres include contemporary romance, erotic romance and historical romance. Not only does she enjoy writing novels, and feels fortunate that she has become an author, but she loves penning “happily ever after tales” like the ones she has written.
She currently resides in New England with her two sons and her husband. As Stacey’s official biography sates, her second favorite hobby is riding four wheelers.

The Devlin Group Series
One of Stacey’s earlier works, the series revolves around the adventures of a privately owned rogue agency. The individuals who are a part of the “Devlin Group” take on perilous missions that may cost them their lives. However, they find themselves in equally daunting tasks when it comes to their romantic lives. Each novel, while keeping its focus on the Devlin Groups, centers around a different couple and their respective story.
72 Hours (reprinted as a part of the Adrenaline Anthology)
The first novel of The Devlin Group Series revolves around Grace Nolan and Alex Rossi. Grace quit the Devlin group years ago as a result of two things: not only was she burnt out by her job, but she discovered that she was pregnant with Alex’s child. Alex, however, is unaware of this. Although she leaves the group behind, she is called back in order to help them with hacking. What ultimately throws her into a spiral when her son, Danny, is kidnapped. The ransom for her son’s life is Alex Rossi. Grace finds herself in a desperate situation: in order to save him, she has to return to her old life, as well as be honest to Alex about his son. Meanwhile, Alex himself has his own pressing issues, including avenging his mother’s murder. But he has one secret that he has hidden from Grace that might prove to be the ultimate betrayal. With only seventy-two hours to defeat the villain and rescue Danny, the stakes are higher than ever in the first novel of the series.
72 Hours has been highly praised by various reviewers, ranging from “Romance Junkies”, “The Romance Studio” and “Romance Diva.” The novel has been regarded as fast-paced, gripping, many commenting on the ability that Stacey has to keep her readers on the edge of their seats. Moreover, the romance itself has been described as heated and intense. To attest to these reviews, the novel has been nominated for the Reviewers International Organization’s Award of Excellence in 2006, as well as TRS’ 2006 award. With its scalding romance and suspenseful plot, the novel marks the debut of an equally thrilling series
On The Edge (reprinted as a part of the Adrenaline Anthology)
The following novel turns to Tony Casavetti and Charlotte Rhames. After a stressful undercover mission, Tony is pulled out of an undercover investigation in New York by Charlotte, the Devlin Group’s executive administrator. For eight years, Tony has hear Charlotte’s voice through open comm, but has never seen her in person. The opportunity comes when all members of the Devlin group are required to join up. The two immediately hit it off, but disaster strikes at the meeting. There is a traitor amongst the Devlin group and it is up to Tony, Charlotte and Gallagher to bring him to justice. There, Charlotte must return to her old tactics with Tony as her bodyguard. With the group at risk, these agents find themselves in a dangerous journey that might result in their deaths.
The continuation of “The Devlin Group” has been met with favorable reviews from “The Romance Studio” and “Romance Reviews.” Like its predecessor, it brings back the same thrills and suspense that made the first novel an enjoyment for its readers. Similarly, the erotic aspects of the novel have been met with enthusiasm by readers and reviewers alike. Apart from the sexual tension between the protagonist, their respective characters were applauded for being well-developed and three dimensional. One reviewer even notes that the secondary characters are also as fleshed out as the leads. The Fallen Angel Reviews cites this novel as one of their recommended reads and certainly, to fans of Stacey, this is a powerful continuation to her series.
The Kowalski Family Series
As Stacey Shannon explains, the first book of the series began as a project that was “just for fun.” Since then, “The Kowalski Family” has had a total of nine books. The series is about various members of the Kowalski family and their love lives. However, the series quickly expanded to include not only the romance of the Kowalski family, but their friends. Like “The Devlin Group” series, each novel focuses on a different couple.
The debut of the series centers around Keri Daniels and Joe Kowalski. Years ago, Keri left Joe to pursue her dreams and live her own life. However, the lovers are fated to meet once more. Since they split, Joe has become an estranged best-selling horror novelist. Keri, who works for a celebrity tabloid called “The Spotlight”, has gradually managed to secure her position at the magazine. Keri’s luck soon changes for potentially the worst. Once a photo of her and Joe surfaces, Keri, under the duress of her of her boss, is forced to conduct an interview with Joe or lose her job. For his part, Joe cuts Keri a deal: for each day that she survives on his family’s annual camping trip, she can ask one question. Amidst the plans of a revengeful sister, family fun and some steamy moments, the possibility of the two lasting forever becomes less of a probability and more of a reality.
One reviewer has claimed that the novel exemplifies one of the reasons she reads romances. To paraphrase RT Book reviews, the novel is filled with moments of tenderness and heartache. Others have praised it for its humor and lightheartedness. The novel has proved an all in all enjoyable read for those who are looking for a contemporary romance novel.
After developing a reputation for becoming something of a playboy after his divorce from his ex-wife, Kevin Kowalski finds himself potentially smitten by a woman who walks into his bar. Intrigued by Beth Hansen, the two share rocky first meeting. Despite this rough start, Kevin and Beth meet once more at a wedding where Beth is bar-tending. After a passionate night gone sour, Beth becomes pregnant with Kevin’s child. Kevin graciously accepts these news and becomes convinced that he and Beth could have a future together. Beth, however, does not seem so moved by this, that is, despite their attraction to each other.
Not unlike the first book, the novel received high praise from RT Book reviews as being the “perfect contemporary romance novel.” The drama in the novel, the reviewer claims, is highly enjoyable, and its subplot is equally as intriguing.Book Series In Order » Authors » Shannon Stacey
