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.

I love Karen Robards, I think that her writing style is amazing. Desire in the Sun is a historical romanance, of all her books I think I enjoy her historical romances the most. Desire in the Sun is about two people who fall in love at first sight, they are challenged every step of the way when secrets come out. During a storm down the coast of North America the two are stranded on a deserted island, their passion and desire grow stronger as they struggle for survival as well as the survival of their love.

I loved this book so much. I think it's one of my all time favorite books. This is the first Karen Robards historical romance that I've read. I couldn't put it down. I really loved Lilah and Joss, their story made me cry a couple of times. My favorite part of the book was when they were on the deserted island. This book has a great plot, a lot of adventure and two great leading characters. I don't think I'll ever forget this story. I loved the ending! Such a perfect ending to a great story. I can't wait to read Ms. Robards' other romance novels.

I found the book really outstanding, but I nearly wept when she lost her child. There was no reason she should have lost it. I got the impression the reason is because she conceived it out of marriage.

Set in 1792, Colonial Virginia & Barbados. You will not want to put this book down. Excitement all the way!!!!! Very sensual & loving, it's love at first sight for the love birds. Very touching how Lilah gives up family, friends & home for the love of her man.

Where to begin? The story takes off so suddenly I couldn't put this book down. Talk about a turn of events for the main characters, how devestating. I love a story that grabs you and holds you until long after you've read the last page. This book is truely one. Very very good from beginning to end. Quite thrilling and romantic.
