Shame on You
Author:Tara Sivec

First and foremost, I’d like to thank my agent Jane Dystel for her unwavering support and belief in what I do.

To my editor Krista Stroever, thank you for making my first experience in traditional publishing an easy one, and for totally getting my humor!

To Donna and Chas, thank you for all of your hard work trying to organize my chaotic life. Without you, my email would be filled with spam and I’d never know what day it is.

James, Madelyn, and Drew, you love me even when I forget what day it is and don’t shower or move from my spot on the front porch for days at a time. I love you more than anything else in this world, even if I call you by the wrong names.

A huge, heartfelt thank you to all of my fans will never suffice, but it’s the best I can do right now. Your e-mails, Facebook posts, and all-around awesomeness amaze me every single day. You are the reason that all of this is possible, and I will be forever grateful that you took a chance on me.

There are entirely too many blogs out there that I owe my thanks to, but just know that I love and appreciate all of you for your constant support.



Tara Sivec is a USA Today bestselling author, wife, mother, chauffeur, maid, short-order cook, baby-sitter, and sarcasm expert. She lives in Ohio with her husband and two children and looks forward to the day when all three of them become adults and move out.

After working in the brokerage business for fourteen years, Tara decided to pick up a pen and write instead of shoving it in her eye out of boredom. She is the author of the Playing with Fire series and the Chocolate Lovers series. Her novel Seduction and Snacks won first place in the Indie Romance Convention Reader’s Choice Awards 2013 for Best Indie First Book.

In her spare time, Tara loves to dream about all of the baking she’ll do and naps she’ll take when she ever gets spare time.
