The Bishop's Daughter

by Karen Woods
 

When George Keppel, the Earl of Newport, broke off their romance, and married another woman, in 1809, Jane Sommersby was devastated. When his twins were born less than five months after that wedding, Jane swore she’d had a lucky escape; that she had been spared great misery.

Now, it's 1812, and Newport’s a widower who is pursuing her, once more.

Meet the Author

I'm Karen Woods.

I write romantic intrigue, historical romance, futuristic romance, gothics, inspirational novels, and nonfiction.

When I was a young college instructor, if anyone had told me that I would be making my living as a writer, I would have told him that he had the wrong woman. Oh, I had stories and characters dancing in my head, clamoring to get out. Writing, however, was something I did strictly for my own amusement, as I had done since I had written my first short story at the age of five. I simply had plans for my life other than writing. I was quite happy teaching undergraduates. Hey, I had to use my degrees for something, didn't I? I do quite enjoy teaching. But, it dawned on me that I could and did write tales that were as good or better than the ones I read in my leisure time.

As for me at this stage of my life, I tease that I live a quiet life. Well, maybe it's quiet in comparison to a Category Four hurricane. I've been married to my best friend since 1979. Often, my house is filled with the sounds of young people, friends of my youngest child who is now almost an adult. My firstborn is a college graduate, working in her field, entirely an adult. I'm exceptionally proud of both of my children.

It's fun to make a living at what I'd do for amusement, anyway.

When I'm not writing, reading, promoting my books, or tutoring children, I like to paint icons.
