Madelaide James is the women’s fiction pen name for bestselling romance author Maddie James.

While Maddie dabbles with cowboys and small town happily-ever-afters, Madelaide explores the complicated relationship journeys of women and their lives, loves, friends, and families, and tackles those problems through story. She figures she’s lived long enough to bring some of her own life experiences into the mix.

Maddie also writes mainstream romantic suspense as M.L. Jameson.

Maddie has published over 50 romance titles worldwide. Affaire de Coeur says, “James shows a special talent for traditional romance,” and RT Book Reviews claims, “James deftly combines romance and suspense, so hop on for an exhilarating ride.”
