A New York Times and USA Today best-selling author of over 20 humorous historical and contemporary romance novels, Karen doesn’t have time for ‘friends’, although she’s been known to haunt the yards of a few, select well known actors, particularly a sexy Australian with the initials H.J. Fortunately, the two actors who filed injunctions against Karen don’t live in her home state so she’s free to travel within the borders of Florida and can, with permission of the court, even visit Southern Georgia and 3/4ths of the state of Tennessee.
Several years ago, Karen married a handsome cop she met while researching her first contemporary romance novel, Talk of the Town. Her husband, aka Hot Cop, has turned into an exemplary Writer’s Husband. He has learned to ‘talk writing,’ knows the fastest routes to all of the major mail carriers, and can tell the difference between an erasable colored pencil and a regular one. He also knows not to ask for meals during Deadline Dementia Week.
When Holly Crawford isn't writing Regency Romps, dark historicals or fantasy worlds, she teaches history and Asian philosophy at a local college. She lives in the South with her family and rescued Golden Retriever who runs everything.

He's made a vow . . .
Eight months ago, noted physician Sir Richard Thornton was called to attend the final days of young Baron Kilkenny. It was a sad, tragic case, made more so by the hauntingly beautiful Baroness Kilkenny, Jane Doherty, who had tried desperately to save her own husband. Having witnessed so many of life's worst tragedies, Richard believes himself safe from distracting attachments, but Jane's haunting beauty has lingered . . .
She refuses to accept the conventional . . .
The daughter of a prominent physician who trained her in the healing arts, Jane believes she could have saved her husband if only taciturn, over-bearing Sir Richard hadn't interfered. Jane vows to have nothing more to do with the abrupt, rude doctor and works hard to establish a thriving practice of her own for those in need. But society isn't happy with her attempt to move in a man's world, and the scandal sheets spread scurrilous rumors and label her the 'Wicked Widow.'
But who is really 'wicked' . . .
Richard is fascinated by the thought of the angelic, delicate Jane as a wanton and wild 'Wicked Widow,' which is why he's spent a considerable amount of time making certain their paths would never again cross. But fate has other plans and soon Jane and Richard find themselves sharing a patient while heated tempers - and even hotter passion - flares once again.
