zz-madelineMadeline Iva got through a particularly gruesome adolescence with the help of romances that not only swept her away, but gave her hope for a better future and true love.  Now she writes about smart women, the brooding heroes who are drawn to them, and the hot sex that follows.

Madeline started Lady Smut.com with a few romance buddies and blogs there every Tuesday.  An MFA graduate in creative writing, Madeline lives with her one true love and very weedy garden in the Blue Ridge hills of Virginia.
