Lacey Dancer is an American author of contemporary romance novels. She won the Romantic Times Career Achievement Award in 1991-1992 for Series Romance Love and Laughter. Romantic Times awarded her a second Career Achievement Award in 1996 for Series Romantic Adventure. Romantic Times described Dancer's novel Silke as "a dazzling, richly intense love story brimming with fascinating characters, sharply imaginative plotting and irresistible romantic suspense".
Many of her early books were published by Meteor in their Kismet line of category romances. The final title in her Pippa series was ready to be shipped to bookstores when Meteor suddenly folded. The orphaned novel, Many Faces of Love, had difficulty finding a new home, partly because the heroine was over 40, which was rare in the romance novel genre. Dancer finally created her own publishing company, Clear Ice Publishing, to release the novel in mass market paperback form.
