Meet the Author

Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve loved to write. My first book was a ten-page effort written at age five for my grandmother. Throughout grade school, high school and college I wrote for various school publications. When I was eighteen, my first professionally published piece—a humorous anecdote—appeared in Reader’s Digest. Still, it never occurred to me that I might become a professional writer. I aimed for a career as a lawyer and was actually in law school when I sold my first book. When that happened, the world lost a would-be lawyer and gained a writer. That book, which is still in print, is Island Flame, and it was published when I was twenty-four. Since then, I’ve written over forty books, which regularly appear on the New York Times, USA Today, and Publisher’s Weekly bestseller lists, among others. The mother of three sons, I read, I write, and I chauffeur children. That’s my life.

Set in 1842, England & New Orleans. Very passionae & exciting. You'll not want to put the book down. I must admit I was a little annoyed with Matt, when he believed that Amanda betrayed him. He just kept on and on and on about it. But he soon realizes his mistake. I enjoyed it very much. I wonder if Zeke will get his own story?

This is a reissue of an early novel by Karen Robards, and the plot and characters definitely reflect this. The first third of the book was OK, but when the so-called hero forced himself on the heroine, (who, of course, is almost half his age!), that ruined the rest of the book for me. I realize that the book is 30 years old, but even in the eighties, when a woman said "no", and a man forced himself on her, that was still rape! Just like her first two novels, "Sea Fire" and "Island Flame", this early Robards novel gives a bad name to historical romance fiction!

Save your money! It started out with some promise, but was just stupid...the characters (Matt especially)...the plot...i could not even finish it.

This is a classic pirate romance. Enough said!
