about me

Jane Austen's Sassy Black Friend

Nikki Payne is an anthropologist who can. not. turn. it. off. 
I love to force my characters into new environments  new cultures and in finding love, they change the way they see the world. Church, cemeteries and romance novels are still the most segregated places in America. My romances, inspired by the classics turn expectations on their head. It's cultural commentary, for the hopeless romantic.
