I know I shouldn’t be surprised that it’s almost the end of the year. I mean, I had a few clues–summer is in the rear view mirror, Thanksgiving came and went, and Christmas gifts have been exchanged!

But I’m still surprised, ever year. What is it about the last part of the year that makes it go SO fast? (I don’t know the answer to that question, but if you do, let me know.)

Anyway, our close proximity to the end of December means that RANCHER AFTER MIDNIGHT has arrived! This book set around New Year’s Eve is all about fresh beginnings, redemption, and new love. Even though it’s Book 9 of 9 in the Texas Cattleman’s Club series, Ranchers and Rivals, you can 100% read this as a standalone. I absolutely love Heath and Ruby’s story and I think you will, too.

But don’t take my word for it, here are a few early reviews readers left on BookBub:

“This is a well-written, emotionally charged story with relatable characters and the issues they face.”

“Ms. Booth’s story is a lovely reminder that love changes us all for good.”

“If fun and sexy romance make you tingle, this is for you.” 

Let me know if you decide to read RANCHER AFTER MIDNIGHT. And Happy New Year! You all are the absolute best. I mean that!

It’s true. I really do love a Christmas romance. I guess it’s because it combines two of my favorite things–falling in love and Christmas. It’s twice as many cozy feel-good vibes! All of that makes me super excited to share that A CHRISTMAS NEGOTIATION is now out in the world! This is a re-release of A CHRISTMAS RENDEZVOUS, with a new title and cover, but all of the same holiday yumminess inside! You get a pajama-clad meet-cute, a one-night stand, rival lawyers fighting over the fate of a famous department store, all of the Christmas fun I could squeeze into one book, and kittens. So many kittens! Jeremy and Isabel are one of my all-time favorite couples, and I hope you feel the same way. So take a little “me” time, grab a copy of this book, curl up in your favorite chair and enjoy a holiday escape!

Well, let me tell you… The Problem with Playboys is my brand new release, Book 1 in the all-new trilogy, The Little Black Book of Secrets. This series follows three childhood best friends–Chloe, Taylor, and Alexandra–who all somehow end up in the crosshairs of an anonymous social media account called Little Black Book. LBB seems hellbent on taking down some very rich and powerful people, and in some instances, that includes my heroines and the people they love. Unmasking Little Black Book is going to take some serious work! (Three books, to be exact.)

In The Problem with Playboys, Parker is a sports agent whose star client is the very first target of Little Black Book. Chloe is a crisis PR expert. Seems like a perfect match, except for three things: Parker worries about almost nothing while Chloe worries about everything, Parker ridicules Chloe’s profession when they meet for the first time, and did I mention that Parker and Chloe’s parents were married briefly and now hate each other? It makes for quite an interesting and sexy situation! This book takes you from New York to Miami and back again, and is a real rollercoaster as Parker and Chloe try to navigate the existential threat of Little Black Book, competing family loyalties, and the biggest obstacle of all–their mutual agreement that romantic love never lasts. I loved watching these two figure it out! I hope you will, too! As always, if you have a chance to read, please drop me a line at karen [at] karenbooth [dot] net. I love hearing from you!

It’s always sad when a series is coming to an end, but in the case of the final book in the Never Too Late series, I’m comforted by the fact that all three covers have been absofreakinglutely stunning! The always amazing Leni Kauffman has done an incredible job on this entire series (in case you’re just discovering it, the first two books were Gray Hair Don’t Care and Brooklyn Monroe Wants It All) and the cover for It’s a Widow Thing does not disappoint! It’s a Widow Thing releases May 23 and is an Amazon exclusive, available for preorder HERE. While we wait for May, here’s the blurb. Enjoy!

He’s on the fast-track to serious, and she’s hitting the brakes.

When cosmetics entrepreneur Sabrina Kelly waited until she was thirty-eight to marry, she never thought she’d be widowed by forty. Now, two years later, she’s ready for a dip in the dating pool. And Michael, the merciless flirt who lives down the hall, seems like a fun way to get wet. He has “player” written all over him, but Sabrina’s not looking for a love connection. Her heart can’t take more than a fling.

Wall Street mogul Michael Wright has ignored his mom’s pressure to marry for years. But it’s not until he has a health scare that he finally takes stock of his life. If he’s going to settle down, only one woman comes to mind… his gorgeous, whip-smart neighbor, Sabrina. Their chemistry is off the charts. The banter? So. Hot. But while he’s working overtime to woo her, she’s holding back. Can two people running at different speeds get to happily-ever-after together?

It’s a Widow Thing is Book 3 in the Never Too Late series, arriving May 23, 2022. It will feature appearances by Lela and Brooklyn from the first two books in the trilogy. HEA guaranteed!


Ring the wedding bells! Best Laid Wedding Plans has arrived! It’s Book 2 in the Moonlight Ridge trilogy. This three-book collaboration with my author friends Joss Wood and Reese Ryan, is set in the beautiful mountains of Asheville, NC and centers around three foster brothers, and the luxury resort Moonlight Ridge, which is owned by their adoptive father, Jameson. After Jameson has a health scare, the three estranged brothers must all return home, but that means confronting everything that tore them apart years ago. It’s an emotional, sexy, and fun family drama that unfolds over the course of three books!

Can an unlucky-in-love wedding planner convince a grumpy billionaire that love is real and save her job?

“You could use a lesson in giving in to temptation.”

But who’s Autumn Kincaid to talk? Her reputation as a wedding planner is on the line after she’s left at the altar. So is her job at Moonlight Ridge—unless she proves herself to grumpy Grey Holloway, whose family owns the resort. Grey doesn’t even believe in true love. She has to convince him romance is real, that all he needs is to give in to the heat threatening to burn them both. Maybe this time Autumn will get her own happily-ever-after…or is this just another best-laid plan?

I hope you have a chance to check out all three books in the trilogy–Homecoming Heartbreaker by Joss Wood, Best Laid Wedding Plans by yours truly, and Just a Little Married by Reese Ryan.

You can find Best Laid Wedding Plans at book retailers everywhere.
