Meet the Author

Catherine  Coulter
Catherine Coulter is the author of sixty-five novels, almost all of them New York Times bestsellers. She earned her reputation writing historical romances, but in recent years turned her hand to penningwith great successcontemporary suspense novels. The Cove spent nine weeks on The New York Times paperback bestseller list and sold more than one million copies. The Maze was Coulter's first book to land on The New York Times hardcover bestseller list.A review of The Maze in Publisher's Weekly stated that it "was gripping enough to establish Coulter firmly in this genre." Coulter continues to live up to that promise with twelve more New York Times bestselling FBI thrillers, including her most recent title Whiplash. Coulter's 15th FBI thriller Split Second will be released in 2011.



Catherine Coulter's first novel, The Autumn Countess, was published at the end of 1978 when she had just reached puberty. It was a Regency romance because, as she says, "as any publisher will tell you, it's best to limit the unknowns in a first book, and not only had I grown up reading Georgette Heyer, but I earned my M.A. degree in 19th century European history."



Following The Autumn Countess (a Gothic masquerading as a Regency, she says), Catherine wrote six more Regency romances. In 1982, she published her first long historical, Devil's Embrace. She has continued to write long historicals, interspersing them with hardcover contemporary novels, beginning with False Pretenses in 1988.



She pioneered the trilogy in historical romance, each of them very popular. They include: Song, Star, Magic, Night, Bride, Viking, and Legacy trilogies. She enjoys trilogies because she doesn't have to say good-bye to the characters and neither do the readers.



Catherine grew up on a horse ranch in Texas. She graduated from the University of Texas and received her masters at Boston College. Prior to becoming a full-time writer, she worked on Wall Street as a speechwriter for a company president. She loves to travel and ski, reads voraciously, and has a reputation for telling jokesbelieving the publishing business is too crazy not to laugh. Catherine lives in Marin County, California with her physician husband and her three cats.

Biography

The author of dozens of bestsellers, Catherine Coulter made her Romance debut with 1978's The Autumn Countess, a fast-moving story she describes as "a Gothic masquerading as a Regency." Six more Regency romances followed in quick succession; then, in 1982, she penned her first full-length historical novel, Devil's Embrace. She counts several trilogies among her most popular historicals, notably the Bride Trilogy -- which, in turn, spawned an ongoing story sequence featuring the beloved Sherbrooke family of Regency-era England.

In 1988, Coulter tried her hand at contemporary romance with a twisty little page-turner called False Pretenses. Her fans ate it up and begged for more. Since then, she has interspersed historicals with contemporary romantic thrillers (like the novels in her bestselling FBI series) in one of the most successful change-ups in the history of romance publishing.

    Book very well written as Coulter always is, but found little love and less romance in this story...

    This is the only book of Catherine Coulter's that I have not praised. I own and have read very nearly every one of her novels, I collect her works. I loved Byrony, her character shined. I despised Brent, he made a bad character(a first class rotter), and all through the book I thought, if he were real, I'd turn away and never look back. I read this book quickly, waiting for the moment I would change my mind and declare this the best book yet, but I ended up finishing the book feeling like I have been left hanging and just plain disappointed that he couldn't have been redeemed sooner in the story. I only have six books left before my collection of her novels is complete. This is the only one to my point of reading that has not met my satisfaction. Indeed, if this had been my first Coulter novel, I would have hesitated much in concidering to buy another. If you are a collector of Coulter or have begun this Quadruplet star series, it is worth space in your collection, or it is worth reading if only for the additional information in filling out the fourth star novel, but if you are just someone looking for a good read, with no particular connection with Coulter, then I would definately pass this book by.

    Beautiful

    Wild Star was one of the first romance novels I read -about 20 years ago. I loved this book. Not a single romance since has compared to the love/hate relationship that Brent and Byrony began with. Their passion has not been matched. The storyline has not been matched. Ms. Coulter has outdone herself with this book. Outstanding!!! The journey that I took with the characters has stayed with me these 2 decades.

    Great Book

    I found the book 'Wild Star' in a box in my basement, and I fell in love with it only a couple chapters in. I instantly fell in love with the stuborn, but sexy, Brent Hammond. He's just so wild and free. I haven't read the other books of the Star series, but I'm looking forward to it. I recommend it to everybody who loves romance. Catherine Coulter is so talented, and the book is very thrilling and sexy.
