Meet the Author

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.

At first, I wondered if this was going to be a romance at all, but then the story took delightful twists and turns, making it a wonderful book and one that I would recommend.

This book surpassed my expectations. It was very entertaining. It tugged on the heart chords. Yes, it does have steamy love scenes for those curious. Overall, a good story with romance.

Oh, this is a ' rewrite' of her 1984 'SWEET SURRENDER' I didn't know that... til I read some previous comments... I am still looking to obtain the book for a reread... I have greatly enjoyed most of Coulter's books, and I am a fan of Historical Romance, and her FBI series as well... I love anything by Jude Deveraux, Julie Garwood, Judith McNaught and Johanna Lindsey,

ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS THAT I HAVE EVER READ. I AM NORMALLY A THRILLER/MYSTERY READER, BUT A FRIEND OF MINE READ THIS AND SAID IT WAS A MUST READ. WOW WAS SHE RIGHT. I STARTED IT ON A MONDAY AND BY TUESDAY, I WAS READY TO READ IT AGAIN. THE AUTHOR DOES A TERRIFIC JOB AT MAKING YOU FEEL LIKE YOU ARE RIGHT THERE WITH THE CHARACTERS. BY THE END, I WANTED ALEX FOR MYSELF.
