Meet the Author

Catherine  Coulter
Catherine Coulter is the author of sixty-five novels, almost all of them New York Times bestsellers. She earned her reputation writing historical romances, but in recent years turned her hand to penningwith great successcontemporary suspense novels. The Cove spent nine weeks on The New York Times paperback bestseller list and sold more than one million copies. The Maze was Coulter's first book to land on The New York Times hardcover bestseller list.A review of The Maze in Publisher's Weekly stated that it "was gripping enough to establish Coulter firmly in this genre." Coulter continues to live up to that promise with twelve more New York Times bestselling FBI thrillers, including her most recent title Whiplash. Coulter's 15th FBI thriller Split Second will be released in 2011.



Catherine Coulter's first novel, The Autumn Countess, was published at the end of 1978 when she had just reached puberty. It was a Regency romance because, as she says, "as any publisher will tell you, it's best to limit the unknowns in a first book, and not only had I grown up reading Georgette Heyer, but I earned my M.A. degree in 19th century European history."



Following The Autumn Countess (a Gothic masquerading as a Regency, she says), Catherine wrote six more Regency romances. In 1982, she published her first long historical, Devil's Embrace. She has continued to write long historicals, interspersing them with hardcover contemporary novels, beginning with False Pretenses in 1988.



She pioneered the trilogy in historical romance, each of them very popular. They include: Song, Star, Magic, Night, Bride, Viking, and Legacy trilogies. She enjoys trilogies because she doesn't have to say good-bye to the characters and neither do the readers.



Catherine grew up on a horse ranch in Texas. She graduated from the University of Texas and received her masters at Boston College. Prior to becoming a full-time writer, she worked on Wall Street as a speechwriter for a company president. She loves to travel and ski, reads voraciously, and has a reputation for telling jokesbelieving the publishing business is too crazy not to laugh. Catherine lives in Marin County, California with her physician husband and her three cats.

Biography

The author of dozens of bestsellers, Catherine Coulter made her Romance debut with 1978's The Autumn Countess, a fast-moving story she describes as "a Gothic masquerading as a Regency." Six more Regency romances followed in quick succession; then, in 1982, she penned her first full-length historical novel, Devil's Embrace. She counts several trilogies among her most popular historicals, notably the Bride Trilogy -- which, in turn, spawned an ongoing story sequence featuring the beloved Sherbrooke family of Regency-era England.

In 1988, Coulter tried her hand at contemporary romance with a twisty little page-turner called False Pretenses. Her fans ate it up and begged for more. Since then, she has interspersed historicals with contemporary romantic thrillers (like the novels in her bestselling FBI series) in one of the most successful change-ups in the history of romance publishing.

    Horrible

    This book was trite and predictable. Eden's relationship with Taylor is completely unbelievable, her family (the bad guys) are hate-able without being realistic, and the entire book focuses more on Eden's two month romance with a man she just met and then marries. The 'plot' has nothing to do with the story until the last 50 pages. The dialogue was even atrocious. The way the characters spoke to one another made me feel the author was trying entirely too hard to make everyone fit the roles she'd drawn for them, without considering that people don't talk the way her characters spoke. The entire book was badly written. Don't waste your time or money.

    A great read with a fast pace!

    This is a typical Catherine Coulter modern romance. The reader will easily relate to Eden, and applaud her growth as the book continues!

    Stunning. Amazing. A Masterpiece

    I can not begin to tell you how much I absolutely love this book. I read it when it was originally published and bought it again when it was re-issued. This book is so gripping that I could not put it down for a second. The plot and the storylines were truly mesmerizing, and the love that the two main characters had for each other was truly amazing and inspiring. I wish that there were more men in the world like S.C. There are two things that I wished would have happened but didn't. I wish was that some of the villians were punished a little more than they were and secondly I wish that they could have set up a epilogue that might have been open to a sequel. Overall this was a masterpiece in my opinion and if I could have given it more than 5 stars I would've.

    Inviting Story, Interesting Plot

    The story was quite gripping. I was always reaching for it in whatever free time I had because I always wanted to know what would happen next. I even had my own suspicions that turned out to be wrong. And for an author to sway you into another direction from the real criminal has to receive some acclaim.Catherine Coulter is witty and good, but sometimes I could not follow her dialogue which iam sure was due to her sense of wit that I might not be able to comprehend. And sometimes I had to read the sentences twice just to understand it. Maybe what Miss Coulter should do is improve on her construction of sentences so that it would be more unambiguous. A fairly good book, I would recommend it to anyone who would like to have some mystery and romance to entertain them.

    I LOVE this book! The characters of Sydney and the Prince are brilliantly written!

    I loved the story line, how the past worked up to the present. Ingenious structure! It kept me reading until 2 AM, when I finished the book. Everyone should read this story about perseverance and true love!
