Author Biography

As an Award Winning and International Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Kobo Best Selling Author, I have always been an avid reader. I joke that I "cut my romance teeth" on the old historical romance books. I’ve written as a hobby for over 30 years. In 2014, I finally gave in to the characters in my head pleading for their story to be told. Thus, Emma's Home was created.

My first novel, Emma's Home became an Amazon Best Seller in 3 categories within the first month of publishing. Its success was followed by the rest of the Fairfield Series and then led into the Love's Series. From there I have continued with the romantic suspense Alvarez Security Series, the Saints Protection & Investigation Series, Letters From Home Series, and Baytown Boys series.

My books are filled with sweet romance and hot sex; mystery, suspense, real life characters and situations. My heroes are alphas, take charge men who love the strong, independent women they fall in love with.

I worked as a counselor in a high school and have been involved in education for the past 30 years. I recently retired and now can spend more time devoted to my writing.
I have been married to a wonderfully patient man for 36 years and have 2 adult, very supportive daughters.

Maryann Jordan’s book, Gabe, in her Alvarez Security Series is sexy and enticing. Yet she beautifully incorporates a truly compassionate addition to the storyline. Jordan’s lead female character, Jennifer, may be a very petite woman, but she is a powerhouse. When she meets alpha male, Gabe, her world begins to tilt sideways. They are both used to protecting and saving others, but they go about it from opposite ends of the spectrum. Will their vast differences help bring them together or force them apart? As intimidation, danger and the darker side of humanity move closer and closer to Jennifer in her efforts to save and protect, you can hardly wait to turn the page and discover just how Gabe will be able to help her.

Jordan’s excellent writing skills and outstanding descriptions of the scenes and characters within Gabe pull you in to the point where you almost feel like you are there too. Her ability to paint a clear picture without overdosing you on imagery allows you to easily open the door to your own imagination. The potential of a romantic relationship can kick-start your heart as Jordan leads you along Jennifer and Gabe’s journey. Even more, your stomach may jump, your curiosity will be piqued, and your heart will be full of hope for wonderful outcomes for those that need both Jennifer and Gabe’s protection. With an excellent plot and fascinating character intricacies, Gabe is a romantic fiction that will keep you turning page after page until the very end. Well done!
