Meet the Author

A Cop's Wife, Writes a Cop's Life

Award winning author Karin Tabke isn't just another author with steamy stories to tell, but a cop's wife who has "seen it all and heard it all." Some of the hottest stories come from behind the blue wall of law enforcement rather than from in front. Married to a street cop, now retired, Karin is intimate with both and proves it with her sizzling tales of hot cops. Not only are her cops hot, but so are her sexy knights and bad boy lycans. Karin's Blood Sword Legacy series is a must read for anyone who loves tales of yore when men were men and women were women, and love did conqueror all. Her dark, erotic Blood Moon Rising paranormal trilogy is best described as "Sons of Anarchy meets Rise of Lycans." Her L.O.S.T. series (w/a Karin Harlow) is paranormal romantic suspense at its "chilling and sizzling" best. You don't want to miss any of Karin's deliciously edgy tales of danger and passion!

    Highly Recommended Hot Read

    Bring in the hoses ladies cause Ms. Tabke is burning up the pages with this one.


    Vaden and Olivia's chemistry is off the charts HOT. The opening scene proves this and it doesn't let up.


    Olivia is a widow who is still mourning the loss of her husband. She has been a "good girl" and has always followed the rules. Until she meets Vaden. He is a "bad boy" and just what Olivia needs but the problem is Vaden won't give all of himself to her. He has no problem giving his body but his heart is a whole other story.


    I really liked this story. Olivia is a strong confident character and does well with putting up with Vaden. He is a very alpha male. Strong, confident, protective, and gorgeous. *swoon* I sincerely enjoyed the relationship between the two characters. You can feel the connection and you find yourself rooting for them. The plot was amazing and very easy to follow. I really don't have to say much about Karin's writing style cause it always rocks and this story is not different. Ms Tabke has a way of putting steam, romance, emotion, and style into every book she writes. I would definitely recommend this wicked read to anyone who is looking for a hot sexy read.

    A wild and sexy romp

    Olivia Connor always plays it safe, but since her husband died she has been considering her options. She wants to explore her wild side in both her private and professional life. She finds the perfect lover, and she knows that with Vaden there are no strings attached. Is she ready to jump completely in? Is she capable of just having a little fun without her heart becoming involved? Vaden Holbrook lives on the wild side with no regrets. He pushes boundaries even in his job on the police force. He has quite a reputation for loving and leaving, but Olivia has him pausing. When he sees her with another man, he acts without thinking. Is he ready to jump into a relationship? Is it even possible for a woman to capture his heart? Karin Tabke sends libidos racing with her short sexy romance. Olivia needs to loosen up, and unbelievable sex with Vaden is heading her in the right direction, but she wants more. Vaden enjoys unleashing Olivia's passion, but for him it is just fun and games. Olivia and Vaden certainly make this a hot and steamy read. Ms. Tabke pens more than just a tantalizing tumble through the sheets. She offers her readers a glimpse into two lives that are on the verge of an important revelation. However, while basking in the afterglow of some sinfully savory scenes, I realized that not all of the loose ends had been tied up. Perhaps we will see these two again or perhaps not. BAD TO THE BONE delivers a short and sweet story spiced with undeniably hot sex and tempered with an emotional element that will leave you breathless.

    Needed more

    Story started pretty good but the ending kind of sucked. When it ended all i was thinking was "where is the rest of the book????"

    more from this reviewer

    Really enjoyed, Just needed a little more

    While I really enjoyed this book, I needed just a little more closure. I don't know if there is going to be a sequel with more of Olivia and Vaden's story but if not then there is one aspect that isn't closed leaving me a bit unfulfilled.

    If I could I would give this 3.5 stars. The story and characters were well written. This was a fast paced read..

    A wicked story!!

    Olivia is a lonely widow who lately has been spending some pretty steamy time with Police Officer Vaden Holbrook. Vaden takes "bad boy" to a whole new level, and it's wicked!! He is the perpetual bachelor, but lately incredible sex isn't enough for Olivia. And if anyone could inspire him to commit, it would be Olivia. But it takes something big to make Vaden realize just how much he would be losing if he didn't have Olivia.
    Wow! This story is HOT!! I absolutely ADORE Vaden - total yummy alpha. And chapter 1 - Oh.My.Gawd. be still my heart. I love all of Karin's stuff - she REALLY knows how to write sexy! And how wonderful to see her self-publishing - I love it that great stories like this are available for $2.99! Seriously, Bad To the Bone is WELL worth the couple bucks it costs. I've already read it like 3 or 4 times =D
