Meet the Author

Born from the genetic mash-up of lesser royalty, storytellers, wanderers and dreamers, Karina Cooper was destined to be a creative genius. As a child, she moved all over the country like some kind of waifish blonde gypsy and learned how to adapt to the new cultures her family settled in. When she (finally) grew up, she skipped the whole genius part and fell in love with writing Paranormal Romance because, really, who doesn't love hot men and a happy ending?

When she isn't writing about things that go bump in the night, Karina designs Steampunk and neo-Victorian couture for gentleman hobbyists and ladies of questionable reputation. She lives in the beautiful Pacific Northwest with a husband, three cats, one rabbit and a passel of adopted gamer geeks.

    Spicy Hot Read

    Most people would be thrilled to be a part of a fancy spa. Especially when the spa is not coming out of their own pocket money-wise. But not Naomi. In fact, she'd almost have to say that's a worse fate than prison itself. It's part of her job, though, and she can't really refuse. So this not so ladylike woman gets all dolled up and enters the world of luxury and rich people. Totally not her thing!

    Naomi is the kind of woman you don't want to anger, or confront in a dark alley at night. She's a "kick butt and take names" kind of gal. She's sassy, snarky, and tough. But really, underneath the rough exterior she wears, there's a hurt woman deep inside....not that she's going to tell that to anyone, but as the book goes on, I noticed that. There's a bit of a soft spot underneath her sarcasm and sharp tongue, especially when it comes to Phinneas Clarke, the man whose family owns and runs Timeless.

    Phin is a phenomenal hero, one that matches Naomi's wits. There is so much he doesn't know about Naomi, yet he's completely smitten with her, despite the way she pushes him away and denies attraction to him. He also knows that she doesn't seem very comfortable or fit in at the spa. Talk about a woman that's all wound up!

    In this dazzling book from Karina Cooper, I found an absolute gem. This books has twists and turns that kept me reading late at night when I really should have been catching up on sleep. The world this author creates, blending the paranormal into a contemporary setting has me begging for more. It's hot, wit, and just full of fun. Keep your eye on this author, I have a feeling with books like this, she's going to be around for a long time!

    If you enjoy a paranormal romance with a heroine who won't soon be forgotten, a plot that's fresh and fun, and a thrill ride that may have you feeling just the way I did when I finished this book, then rush to get your own copy of Lure of the Wicked.

    The latest Dark Mission futuristic romantic urban fantasy is an exciting thriller

    In New Seattle Holy Order of St. Dominic witch hunter Naomi Ishikawa West reluctantly agrees to pretend to be an heiress at the luxurious Timeless spa. She hates her mission of surveillance of a man who murdered two church officials because to Naomi this assignment feels like the missionary prison the Church took her out of.

    At Timeless, Naomi rushes from the elevator into spa owner Phinneas Clarke's arms; where she almost ruined his family jewels with a knee lift. He conceals his family secrets and his witch rescuing underground activity behind the respectability of Timeless. However, naïve nice Naomi has him wondering if there is more to life under the church's tyranny.

    The latest Dark Mission futuristic romantic urban fantasy (see Blood of the Wicked) is an exciting thriller with a strong cast anchored by the lead couple. The story line is fast-paced from the moment Naomi knees Phinneas and never slows down until the final confrontation. Although the post apocalyptic world of Cooper is not further enhanced from the setting of Blood of the Wicked even with a stop in Old Seattle, sub-genre fans will appreciate this exhilarating tale.
