~Awarded 2018 Writer of the Year by Akron University's Wayne College~
Chloe Flowers writes American historical women's action and adventure romance novels about scoundrels, pirates, and spunky, independent heroines. She likes to challenge her characters by tossing them the middle of actual historical events, or with real historical characters.
Chloe supports the NATIONAL BREAST CANCER FOUNDATION.
On average, over 80% of their funds go to programs that directly support women through every step of the breast cancer journey.
She's currently working on a new contemporary series based on her quirky hometown and the eccentric people she meets when touring with her dog, Indiana Jones.
Chloe is a member of the Romance Writers of America, Northeast Ohio Romance Writers and The Beau Monde Romance Writers group, where she serves as secretary. In 2011, she formed the Sunshine Critique Group so that she and other aspiring authors could motivate and challenge each other to become better writers. Six members have been published.
She has given workshops and presentations on creating a critique group, how to provide effective critiques, story structure, and self-publishing lessons to writers groups, library patrons and children.
In 2014, she started her own small publishing company, Flowers & Fullerton. Currently, she's the publisher of record for authors Sheridan Jeane, H.O. Knight as well as herself.
Whether it's dancing in a downpour at 3AM, whitewater rafting, or racing ponies, Chloe's always looking for the next adventure.
Chloe's pets have always been named after favorite characters or action heroes: Indiana, Luke, Gimli, Thelma, Rocket, Forrest, Al Giordino, Severus, Mushu, Mérida, Gibbs, Jack and Dead Pool (he's a goldfish).
Chloe's biggest fault is her apparent inability to say "no" whether it's in response to a call for aid or a double-dog-dare to hike home through 30 acres of a snow-covered forest at midnight...during a full moon. It was early morning during said adventure when she came upon a group of sheriff's deputies searching for a lost girl. So, of course she offered to help. Turns out, they were searching for her.
In addition to her addiction to adrenaline, she has a weakness for good red wine, dark chocolate and brown-eyed guys with beards, which is probably why she digs pirates and treasure hunters and writes about action and adventure, pirates and romance (which is the greatest adventure of all).

Books 1-3: The Hart Trilogy:
A smuggler. A temptress in distress. The only one who can help her is the man she must avoid at all costs.
"A thrilling American historical romance!"
Rakishly handsome and equally exasperating Landon Hart is not only a wealthy merchant ship's captain but also carefully protects his own dangerous secrets. When he discovers a sword-wielding, fiery-haired temptress named Keelan, he isn't prepared for the impact she has on his tightly guarded heart...nor the trouble she manages to attract.
Fiercely independent and equally impetuous Keelan Grey is busy avoiding a marriage of "inconvenience" when a deathbed confession from a loved one plunges her into a dark plot of deception and revenge. Desperate for help, Keelan finds an unlikely ally in an antagonistic but irresistible smuggler, Landon Hart.
Landon and Keelan's adventure continues.
Keelan Grey is running away from an arranged marriage and Captain Landon Hart doesn't know it yet, but she's just been hired as the new cook's helper on his ship.
When pirates kidnap her first, the fiery vixen ends up neck-deep in trouble. To make matters worse, if certain people find out what Landon's smuggling in the walls of his hold, all hell will break loose.
Keelan is forced to act a charade and soon her life depends on her playing the part. With the mystery of her true identity yet to be solved, and enemies closing in, she must rely both on her wits and skill with a blade to survive.
One thing is certain; the pirates suspect she's hidden aboard Landon's ship, and it's not long before their schooner is spotted on the horizon.
An accident robs Landon of the last five years of his life, turning his new wife, Keelan into a stranger aboard his ship.
Worse, a series of events putting members of the Freedom Runners in jeopardy has Landon accusing Keelan of conspiracy and betrayal. When each explanation sounds more outlandish than the last, her hope for Landon to fall in love with her again becomes more and more futile. Bounty hunters close in, setting a trap for Landon. To save him, Keelan must persuade him to trust her. Her fight for Landon's love soon turns into a fight for his life.
PIRATE HEIRESS (Book 4, a standalone)
She's not really a pirate, but the captain doesn't need to know it.
Her sister's life depends on her acting the part.
Reluctant pirate Stevie Sauvage is on a quest with her family to find a secret treasure when her eight-year-old twin siblings are kidnapped and the ransom demand is a merchant ship called the Seeker. Stevie must find the courage to conquer her fears and fight for those she loves.
Italian-born, French privateer Drago Viteri Gamponetti (Gampo to his men) has coveted the Ahern merchant fleet for years, and sets a trap in Jamaica. Unfortunately, he has two small rascals aboard; a boy who wants to be just like him, and a girl that will either steal him blind or turn his black heart.
When Captain Conal O'Brien discovers that the pirates work for his sworn enemy, he doesn't resist capture. But these nutty brigands aren't who they seem to be, and if Conal's not careful, he's going to lose his heart as well as his ship to the woman determined to steal both.
Pirate Heiress is a high seas, historical, pirate romance filled with action and adventure, mystery and intrigue, and a quest for hidden treasure!
"This storyline itself was well thought out and engaging. I have read a fair few "pirate romances," and I have to say that Pirate Heiress is up there with the best. FANTASTIC READ!!" - Net Galley Reviewer
REDEEMING THE PIRATE
He steals for the French crown.
She heals for the Catholic church.
He will heal her heart.
She will steal his.
To complete a mission for the French crown, a former pirate must either commit treason or betray the woman he secretly loves. One sends him to the guillotine, the other straight to hell.
French Privateer, Captain Drago Gamponetti is given one final mission from his employer, the king of France: reclaim religious relics from a New Orleans. Trouble begins when he's forced by a mysterious, veiled, novitiate nun to swear on the Bible to protect the very items he was instructed to steal.
Novitiate nun and healer, Eva Trudeau hides more than her face behind the veil. The convent has been her safe haven since she crawled, beaten and bloody, to its door nine years ago. When an old enemy re-surfaces and threatens to drag her back into the dark underworld from where she'd escaped, both she and her dark pirate captain stand to lose everything they've fought so hard to protect...including each other.
"Brilliantly funny and full of action this book is very entertaining. The characters are interesting and likable, even the bad guy, and the storyline is exciting. I couldn't put this down and I couldn't stop laughing."
