Overview

Nonsense! Diane Fields, smart, practical, single mother of three, didn't believe in happily-ever-afters--even if her sister was married to the king of Elbia. But here was Earl Thomas Smythe, the rugged, debonair bodyguard to Diane's royal brother-in-law, standing in Diane's kitchen offering to whisk her away to Elbia's luxurious palace--and for a little rest and relaxation, no less! Why, Diane almost took the earl's suggestion as a joke--except there was no doubting the fiery ardor in the eyes of the king's emissary. And there was no doubting that Thomas was stirring up a very passionate response deep in Diane's soul....

Meet the Author

Kathryn Jensen lives in Maryland, happily sandwiched between two of the most exciting cities in North America - Washington, D.C., and Baltimore. But the Mid-Atlantic hasn't always been home. The many places in which she's lived - including Italy, Texas, Connecticut and Massachusetts - as well as others visited, have inspired over forty novels of adventure, romance and mystery beloved by readers of all ages.

Her books have hit the Waldenbooks Bestseller List, been nominated for the esteemed Agatha Christie Award and honored by the American Library Association as a Best Book for Reluctant Readers. She has served as a judge on the Edgar Allan Poe Award Committee and continues her advocacy for literacy among children and adults.

While living in Europe as a young military wife, Kathryn's appetite for exotic destinations was whetted, and she has ever since loved to travel with her characters to foreign lands. Before turning to writing full time, she worked as an elementary school teacher, a department store sales associate, a bank clerk and a dance teacher. She still teaches writing to adult students through Long Ridge Writers' Group and the Institute of Children's Literature, correspondence schools that instruct in the craft of fiction and nonfiction for publication. She loves to share her three decades of experience in publishing with new writers.

Today she lives with her husband, Roger, on the outskirts of the nation's capital and visits her grown children and granddaughter as often as she can. Kathryn and Roger spend most of the summers aboard Purr, their classic Pearson 32' sailboat, cruising the Chesapeake Bay. When book deadlines loom, she keeps on writing on her laptop while Roger trims the sails. Their two cats, Tempest and Miranda (named in honor of Shakespeare's final play and its heroine), generally prefer to remain on land, although their mistress can't understand why!

Kathryn is a member of the Romance Writers of America, Mystery Writers of America, Novelists Inc. and Sisters in Crime. Some of her favorite places to "get away from it all" are a guest house in Bermuda, called Granaway, once owned by a Russian Princess, and St. Thomas, in the gorgeous Virgin Islands. Ahhhh! Now if those aren't amazing backdrops for a romance, what is?
