Meet the Author

Award-winning author Karen Rose Smith was born in Pennsylvania. Although she was an only child, she remembers the bonds of an extended family. She and her parents lived with her grandfather and aunt until she was five when her parents built a house next door. Since her father came from a family of ten and her mother, a family of seven, there were always aunts, uncles and cousins visiting on weekends. Family is a strong theme in her books and she suspects her childhood memories are the reason.

As a teenager, music became as important to Karen Rose as reading. The Beatles were her favorite group. But she and her cousin took their first sojourn into writing by collaborating on a script for the television show The Monkees. They sent that script to every concert venue where the group appeared that summer!

In college, Karen Rose began writing poetry and also met her husband to be. They both began married life as teachers, but when their son was born, Karen decided to try her hand at a home-decorating business.

She returned to teaching for a while but changes in her life led her to writing romance fiction. Now she writes full-time. Her first romance was published in 1992; her 70th romance will be published in 2010. A winner of New Jersey's Golden Leaf Award for Short Contemporary Romance, Colorado Romance Writers Award of Excellence for Short Contemporary, as well as the Phoenix Desert Rose Chapter's Golden Quill for Traditional Romance. She has also been honored with Cataromance.com's award for Best Special Edition. Her romances have made both the USA TODAY list and the Waldenbooks bestseller list for Series Romance.

Recently she has been hard at work on a six-book series for Silhouette Special Edition--The Baby Experts--as well as taking part in continuity series such as The Montana Mavericks.

Married to her college sweetheart since 1971, believing in the power of love and commitment, she envisions herself writing romance for a long time to come! Readers can e-mail Karen through her Web site. She posts excerpts there and info about upcoming titles.

    A character driven romance

    In Portland, Oregon, former model Carrie and land developer Brian Summers are considering adoption with the wife pushing it hard while her spouse reliantly goes along with her. Already filled with doubts, Brian has greater doubts when case worker Trina Bentley from Children¿s Connection offers an opportunity that he wants to refuse. Eight months pregnant eighteen year old unwed homeless Lisa Sanders knows she must give up her baby. Carrie takes Lisa into her home over the objection of her workaholic husband............................ As Carrie observes Brian ignore Lisa and her elation of having a child, she realizes that their relationship has been built on falsehoods. She takes much of the blame hiding from him an odious violent episode from before meeting Brian, which is why she cannot conceive and worse unable to tell him. His family problems lie with the desertion by his mother years ago. Can Lisa with her own demons innocently bring two scarred souls obviously in love back together or will she serve as the final straw that piled on the deceptions break the marriage?........................ This is a terrific contemporary romance starring two fabulous likable protagonists whose respective pre-marriage traumas surface when they differ on adoption. The story line will have readers in tears hoping for the best for all concerned as these are nice people who deserve good things and times, but not expecting anything near that to occur. Fans fortunate to read A PRECIOUS GIFT will seek out Karen Rose Smith¿s back list (see TAKE A CHANCE ON ME) and the previous five Logan's Legacy tales by other authors.........................
