Overview

Search For Love series, Book 2
Could Jake ever trust Sara again?
Sara Standish knew private investigator Jake Donovan didn't want children. He'd lost his wife and child and his anguish was obvious. With their wedding only days away, she discovered she was pregnant. Should she marry Jake and trap him with a child he might not want? She loved him too much to do that so she called off their wedding and left Los Angeles without telling him about her pregnancy. Now four years later, a letter from her mother helps her realize she made a terrible mistake. Jake deserves to know he has a son.
When Sara tells Jake the truth, she sees the sense of betrayal in his eyes. He will never be able to trust her again. But when he asks her to marry him for the sake of their son, she hopes her love can heal them both.
Although Jake has hardened his heart against Sara's beauty and gentle nature, he knows he wants to be a father to his son. The only way to do that? Marriage. But he doesn't expect to be caught in the web of loving Sara again. With Christmas near, can they really become a family? Only if he can leave the past behind.
Can the traditions of Christmas make Jake whole? No, but maybe love can.
(Previously published with Silhouette Books as Shane's Bride.)

Meet the Author

Karen Rose Smith's plots are all about emotion. She began writing in her early teens when she listened to music and created stories to accompany the songs. After expressing feelings in poetry, earning a degree in English and French, completing short stories that became too long to find a market, she turned to her love of relationships in romance. This award-winning best-selling author (USA Today List, Borders Bestseller List) has sold 79 books since 1991 and has published with Silhouette, Harlequin, Kensington and Meteor/Kismet. Her awards include two Golden Leaf awards in short contemporary romance, the Golden Quill in traditional romance, two cataromance.com's awards for Best Special Editions and Romance Review's Today's Best series romance award. Jane Bowers of Romance Reviews Today states: "Karen Rose Smith's storyworlds are complete and realistic and lovely places to visit and revisit."
Karen is well-known for writing emotion. An only child, she spent a lot of time in her imagination and with books Nancy Drew, Zane Gray, The Black Stallion and Anne of Green Gables. She dreamed of brothers and sisters and a big family like her mother and father came from. On weekends she was often surrounded by aunts, uncles and cousins. This is the root of her plotlines that include small communities and family relationships as part of everyday living. She believes universal emotions unite us all and that is the reason she employs them to propel her plots.
It is no secret that Karen married her college sweetheart and they have been married for over 40 years. She believes in the power of commitment and the hope that goes along with the promise of everlasting love. Along with enjoying time with her husband, Karen enjoys cooking, gardening, shopping, listening to music and keeping her three cats company or vice versa.
She has been busy reformatting her backlist as ebooks. In addition, she writes Harlequin Special Editions. Her new series REUNION BRIDES began in February 2011 with HIS DAUGHTER...THEIR CHILD and will continue in August 2012 with RILEY'S BABY BOY. Her mystery series with a home-stager sleuth will begin in 2013.
Readers can follow her on Facebook (Search--Karen Rose Smith) or on Twitter @karenrosesmith. She welcomes interaction on either social network and would love to chat about plotlines, heroes, heroines, music, books, gardening, cooking, or anything else readers deem noteworthy!
