Welcome to the online home for author Lisa Rayne!
Author Lisa Rayne . . . in short
Lisa is an award-winning author, a speaker, and an advocate for mainstream distribution of fiction featuring multicultural protagonists. An avid reader, the only thing she likes more than curling up with a good book is writing one. She provides readers with romantic fiction and edgy thrillers featuring smart, sexy characters of diverse backgrounds.
Lisa’s stories offer more than just romance. You’ll find a mystery or suspense, a personal challenge, or perhaps some family drama the characters must overcome. While she includes plenty of sexual tension, and a sexy love scene or two, her characters develop meaningful relationships and intimacy beyond the bedroom.
So, if you’re looking for love stories where romance isn’t simply spelled s-e-x, you’ve come to the right place!

Join Lisa June 14-16, 2018 in her hometown of Kansas City, MO
as she hosts the RSJ Book Lover Convention.
What’s the RSJ Convention you ask?
We think the folks over at Everfest sum it up best:
“If you’re a sucker for steamy romance tales, follow your love-stricken heart to the RSJ Convention in Kansas City. With an emphasis on black love stories penned by black authors, you’ll encounter an abundance of page-turners looking to sneak their way to the top of your reading list. Readers can meet authors and even attend a series of workshops to test their writing chops. Those who write or read multicultural characters are encouraged to attend the conference full of adventures, exploits, industry forums, workshops and more.” ~Everfest, Bringing People Together Offline In Celebration
