Meet the Author

Growing up in the pretty farmland of Ontario, Canada, then later the Alberta prairies, Kate Bridges developed a love for wide-open spaces, country sunshine and the Rocky Mountains.

Prior to being a full-time writer of historical romance novels—Canadian and American Westerns—Kate worked for years as a pediatric intensive-care nurse; she often includes medical adventure in her stories. Later she studied architecture and interior design, landing a job as a researcher for a television design program. Booking guests from around the world and coming up with topics of interest to viewers, Kate now uses those research skills to pen her own novels.

An award-winning and USA Today bestselling author, Kate Bridges has been published since 2002. Her first Mountie novel, The Surgeon, was nominated for Best Western of the Year by Romantic Times magazine, and The Engagement was short-listed for Best Hero of the Year. Several of her novels received the magazine's Best Hero of the Month honor, and others were chosen as Top Picks! and Buried Treasure of the Year on reader Web sites. Frontier Christmas hit the USA Today bestseller list. Her books have been translated into nine languages and are sold worldwide. In Canada, her novels are being studied in over a dozen colleges in commercial-fiction writing courses.

In her spare time, Kate enjoys going to movies, studying comedy, recreational flying with her husband and exploring the great Canadian wild. She's currently writing a series set during the Klondike Gold Rush, and visited the Yukon and Alaska for research. She had fun panning for gold.

    This is a superb Alaskan historical romance

    In 1899 Skagway in the District of Alaska, Quinn Rowlan needs a doctor for his injured brother Harrison who will die if not treated for a fever. Although it is difficult for an outlaw to come to town, Quinn does only to learn the two doctors were gone. However he learns of a nurse Victoria Windhaven and decides to take her as his only option. He with the help of his cronies abducts the woman.<BR/><BR/>However, Quinn kidnapped the wrong woman. Instead of Victoria he grabbed singer businesswoman Autumn MacNeil who at a masquerade party wore a nurse¿s uniform. She knows nothing about treating illnesses or knife wounds and besides she seems sick too. He finally believes her, but reluctantly escorts her back by canoe to Skagway. Making matters worse he is falling in love with his feisty prisoner and she is chagrined that she wants this wanted man.<BR/><BR/>This is a superb Alaskan historical romance with masquerades being the overarching theme. The story line is fast-paced whether readers kayak on a river, trek in woods, or walk the planks of Skagway. The lead couple is terrific pairing of love intruding at the wrong time with the wrong person. Once again this fabulous author provides fans with a vivid bridge into the past.<BR/><BR/>Harriet Klausner

    I donnu

    I did a state project on Alaska and I am wondering if this book is any good. Alaska was a very cool state to research. I recommend visiting there.

    Good reading

    Having taken a trip through the gold rush area in Alaska, I was very interested in reading these books written by Kate Bridges. They were very true to what took place during the turn of the 20th century.
