Search For Love, Book 4. A sweetly sexy contemporary ranch romance by Karen Rose Smith with an old-fashioned flavor but a modern twist.
Dr. Zackary Burke lost his wife and unborn child. Leaving tragedy behind, he heads for a different life, taking temporary jobs. When he arrives at the Rising Star ranch, he meets Lucy McIntyre who soon discovers Zack is a loner who doesn't intend to stay. Yet she is undeniably drawn to him.
Adopted, always grateful for the McIntyres' love, Lucy comes into possession of an old photograph that could lead to finding her twin sister. As the McIntyres accept Zack into their fold, he suggests an unorthodox means of searching for her twin that sets them both on a journey they never expect. Lucy searches for bonds that can last forever, both with her sister...and with him. With her caring determination, Lucy thaws Zack's heart and coaxes him to open it again. Accepting Lucy's love enables him to give the McIntyres an irreplaceable gift...and teaches him how to find happily-ever-after.

Karen Rose Smith's plots are all about emotion. She began writing in her early teens when she listened to music and created stories to accompany the songs. After expressing feelings in poetry, earning a degree in English and French, completing short stories that became too long to find a market, she turned to her love of relationships in romance. This award-winning best-selling author (USA Today List, Borders Bestseller List) has sold over 80 books since 1991 and has published with Silhouette, Harlequin, Kensington and Meteor/Kismet.

Jane Bowers of Romance Reviews Today states: "Karen Rose Smith's storyworlds are complete and realistic and lovely places to visit and revisit."
Karen is well-known for writing emotion. An only child, she spent a lot of time in her imagination and with books Nancy Drew, Zane Gray, The Black Stallion and Anne of Green Gables. She dreamed of brothers and sisters and a big family like her mother and father came from. On weekends she was often surrounded by aunts, uncles and cousins. This is the root of her plotlines that include small communities and family relationships as part of everyday living. She believes universal emotions unite us all and that is the reason she employs them to propel her plots.
It is no secret that Karen married her college sweetheart and they have been married for over 42 years. She believes in the power of commitment and the hope that goes along with the promise of everlasting love. Along with enjoying time with her husband, Karen enjoys cooking, gardening, shopping, listening to music and keeping her three cats company or vice versa.
