SHARON MICHALOVE

Romance—Suspense—Mystery
I create stories full of romance, suspense, and mystery. Seasoned romance where love has no age limit. Stories that prove second chances happen, enemies become friends, and friends become lovers. Stories that show no two happy endings are the same. At the core of every story is love.

ABOUT SHARON MICHALOVE

Sharon grew up in suburban Chicago. She received four degrees from the University of Illinois because she didn't have the gumption to go anywhere else, and spent most of her career at the university, eventually earning a PhD, working in departmental administration, publishing, and libraries as well as teaching. Her specialties are 15th-16th century European history, polar exploration, and food history.


Having originally published nonfiction, she has a chapter, “Sylvie Green” in A Reason to Be Here, a collaborative novel. She also has the story “Hockey on the Moon” in the anthology Sci-Fi Stepdad. Her manuscript, At First Sight, was selected as a semifinalist for the 2021 Soon to Be Famous Illinois Author manuscript competition sponsored by the Illinois Library Association.


Sharon loves music, theater, travel, and cats, and less elevated activities like eating doughnuts and sampling gins and single malts. After spending most of her life in a medium-sized university town she moved back to Chicago in 2017 so she could go to more Blackhawks games and spend quality time at Eataly.


Unfortunately her lifetime goal, to be English, is likely to remain unfulfilled.

AT FIRST SIGHT

Oxford, England 1993. An awkward American grad student runs into a gorgeous English undergrad with her bicycle. She’s embarrassed. He’s intrigued. They go their separate ways, but neither forgets.


Chicago, Illinois 2013. When Cress Taylor starts receiving anonymous threats, the successful novelist feels her world crashing down. Max Grant turns up at a book signing and wants to renew their fleeting acquaintance. Is the timing coincidental or suspicious? Should she fall into his arms or run like hell? Then the plagiarism accusations start. 


A former spy now working for a global security company, Max Grant has always steered clear of relationships—until now. When he sees Cress in a TV interview, his curiosity ignites. Will the spark he felt twenty years ago burst into flame? Cress is a magnet he can’t resist. As threats escalate to physical danger, Max feels driven to protect Cress. They must learn to work together if they want to stop her nemesis and find their happy ending.
