I’m Karen, a Midwestern girl transplanted in the South, raised on ’80s music and repeated readings of Forever by Judy Blume. An early preoccupation with Rock ‘n’ Roll led me to spend my twenties working my way from intern to executive in the music industry. Now I’m a married mom of two, and instead of staying up late in rock clubs, I get up before dawn and write sexy contemporary romance and women’s fiction.
It’s time for a Fall 2018 book preview! August is usually miserably hot in North Carolina, but we got a reprieve this year because it’s only been miserably humid. Seriously…it’s been raining for weeks and my skin is impossibly dewy (read: sweaty). The good news is that Fall is on the way. I know this because Thursday Night Football was on this week. The universe only torments me this way when crisp days, falling leaves, and apple cider season is on the horizon.
This fall I have two new releases, both of which I’m unbelievably excited about! The first is SECRETS OF A (SOMEWHAT) SUNNY GIRL, out October 16, in all eBook formats and paperback. The cover will be revealed Tuesday, August 21 on HEA USA Today. In the meantime, here’s a teaser! Secrets was a true labor of love for me and it has everything I love to write about–family dynamics, secrets, and a hero you will fall hard for. If you liked BRING ME BACK, you’ll love this one! It’s available to preorder now!
Hot on the heels of Sunny Girl comes A CHRISTMAS TEMPTATION, Book One in the Eden Empire, a series featuring three headstrong heiresses and three heartthrob heroes, all set against the backdrop of the largest department store in Manhattan, Eden’s. This first installment stars Sophie, whose greatest aspiration has always been to run Eden’s with her grandmother. But Gram has passed away, Christmas is coming, and Jake, the guy she could never forget, is desperate to buy Eden’s and turn it into something else. There’s a mountain of money on the table, but temptation makes it so much more complicated. Sophie’s book will be out November 1 in all eBook formats and November 6 in paperback. It’s available to preorder now!
What’s on the way in 2019? A CINDERELLA SEDUCTION (Book Two, Eden Empire) in February, SINS OF THE FATHER in May, and A BET WITH BENEFITS (Book Three, Eden Empire) in August. Plus other surprises!
