Wild Card Weekend - Karen Rose Smith
Hi, everyone. I'm so glad to be here blogging with you. My 70th romance will be released this year and I'm excited about that.
Whenever I write a blog, I like to give a few details about myself. I live in Pennsylvania but the Southwest is my favorite place on the planet. The scenery fills me up creatively and spiritually the way nothing else can. Cooking is my favorite hobby and I once won second place in a national Bisquick contest! I find recipes can be as interesting to put together as plots. Early on—in my teens—I wrote poetry and began a book manuscript. Music fed my creative bent then and still does today. Favorite singers? Taylor Swift, Adam Lambert and Josh Groban. What can I say? My tastes are eclectic.
I'd love to discuss my Baby Experts series with you. The fifth book in the series, THE TEXAS BILLIONAIRE'S BABY, will be released at the end of February with Silhouette Special Edition.
In THE TEXAS BILLIONAIRE'S BABY, my hero, Logan Barnes, is worried about his toddler son who isn't yet walking. Daniel was a preemie and his mother died to save him. My heroine Gina Rigoletti has returned to Sagebrush, Texas after years away to make peace with her past...as well as with Logan. When she was eighteen she fell in love with him but left him because of a threat from his father and for the dream of a future for herself and her sister. A developmental baby expert now, Logan hires Gina to help Daniel learn to walk. Old feelings come rushing back for both of them.
Gina once left Logan and he can't forget that betrayal. On Gina's part... She holds more than one secret that could destroy the new bond they forge while working with Daniel. After Gina left Sagebrush for college—Logan never knew his father threatened her—she was date-raped.
This romance is about healing the past but also healing a trauma that has never seen the full light of the sun. Gina's love for Logan and his for her becomes the sun Gina needs to let fourteen-year-old wounds heal.
I'm ready to discuss any aspects of my blog. I want to thank all my readers for your support during my career. If you are a new reader, I hope you enjoy the plunge into my booklist and find reading each book a pleasure and an emotional experience.
Have a great day.
