Review

"Popular Harlequin/Silhouette romance author Karen Rose Smith adds a bit of a mystery to contemporary romance in ALWAYS DEVOTED, but she continues to delve into the hearts of her characters and includes her trademark heartwarming passages between an alpha man and a child." Jane Bowers, Romance Reviews Today

From the Author

         ALWAYS DEVOTED is Book 3 in my Search For Love series.  It is a never-before-published novel. In the first book of the series, Nathan's Vow, I introduce Linc Granger as Nathan's best friend.  He was definitely hero material and I had to write a book just for him!  
          I have branched out from romance into mystery and decided to add the mystery complication to ALWAYS DEVOTED. I think you'll fall in love with Linc and feel deeply for Emma and her daughter.  But I also believe you'll want to find the answer to--What happened to Emma's sister?
          Throughout all my books (over 85 now) , I attempt to keep the emotion of my characters as the focus. My intention is always to touch my readers' hearts and urge them to believe in happily-ever-after.  Living in Pennsylvania with my college sweetheart and three rescued cats, I spend most days writing, editing, cooking and gardening. I draw inspiration from music, the farm in my back yard, and my hummingbird garden. Relationships have always fascinated me and I look forward to writing about them for a long time to come whether in romance or mystery. For more about me and my latest releases, including excerpts, photos and short stories, please visit my websites at karenrosesmithmystery.com and karenrosesmith.com.  To keep in touch day to day, follow me at Facebook, on Twitter and on my Karen Rose Smith blog--Cats, Roses...and Books! listed on my Amazon Author Central page. Look for more of my books on Amazon Kindle.  Most of all I hope the novels you read give you entertainment, deep enjoyment and hope.

More About the Author

Biography

Karen Rose Smith is writing mysteries as well as romances now! Her plots, whether in mystery or romance, are all about relationships.

She began writing in her early teens when she listened to music and created stories to accompany the songs. After expressing feelings in poetry, earning a degree in English and French, completing short stories that became too long to find a market, she turned to her fascination with relationships to writing romances and now mysteries. This award-winning best-selling author (USA Today List, Borders Bestseller List, Amazon Romance Bestseller lists, Barnes and Noble Bestseller list) will see her 84th novel released in 2014. She has published with Silhouette, Harlequin, Kensington and Meteor/Kismet. Her awards include two Golden Leaf awards in short contemporary romance, the Golden Quill in traditional romance, two cataromance.com's awards for Best Special Editions and Romance Review's Today's Best series romance award. Jane Bowers of Romance Reviews Today states: "Karen Rose Smith's storyworlds are complete and realistic and lovely places to visit and revisit. She excels at stories that feature couples brought together by infants and children, and she handles her plots and characters with sublime sensitivity."

Karen is well-known for writing emotion-packed novels. An only child, she spent a lot of time in her imagination and with books--Nancy Drew, Zane Gray, The Black Stallion and Anne of Green Gables. She dreamt of brothers and sisters and a big family like her mother and father came from--seven children in her mom's family and ten in her dad's. On weekends she was often surrounded by aunts, uncles and cousins. This is the root of her plotlines that include small communities and family relationships as integral to everyday living. She believes universal emotions unite us all and that is the reason she employs them to propel her plots.

It is no secret that Karen married her college sweetheart and they have been married for over forty years. She believes in the power of commitment and the hope that goes along with the promise of everlasting love. Along with enjoying time with her husband, Karen enjoys cooking, gardening, shopping, listening to music and keeping her three rescued cats company or vice versa.

She has been busy indie publishing her SEARCH FOR LOVE series. In addition, she is writing her Caprice De Luca mystery series for Kensington as well as romances for Harlequin Special Edition. Readers can follow her on Facebook (Search--Karen Rose Smith) or on Twitter @karenrosesmith. Contact her through her website www.karenrosesmith.com if you'd like to belong to her street team or her readers group on Facebook. She welcomes interaction with her readers on Facebook and Twitter, and would love to chat about plotlines, titles, emotions, heroes, heroines, music, books, gardening, cooking, or anything else readers deem noteworthy!

ALWAYS DEVOTED - Karen Rose Smith
Search For Love Series, Book 3
Smashwords -(...)

Romantic Suspense E-Book Novella

California

Emma Henderson is a giver. She took care of her mother until she died, then continued to care for her younger sister, Paige, even after she married and had daughter Becky. And she owns and runs a gift basket shop. A year ago, an accident took her husband, and three months ago, Paige, now twenty, disappeared on the way to San Francisco. Her car was found abandoned on the side of the highway. The police have been unable to find Paige, so Emma takes part in a TV interview promoted by media producer Linc Granger. Even while nearly overwhelmed by life, Emma can't help feeling attracted to Linc.

Linc Granger is handsome, highly successful, and distrustful of women, but he's strangely moved by Emma Henderson and charmed by four-year-old Becky. He arranges a meeting between Emma and his friends, Gillian Bradley and Jake Donovan. Together, these two friends trace missing persons; Gillian has a "gift" that lets her make connections, and Jake is a former cop who deals with the mundane aspects of a search.

Popular Harlequin/Silhouette romance author Karen Rose smith adds a bit of a mystery to contemporary romance in ALWAYS DEVOTED, but she continues to delve into the hearts of her characters and includes her trademark heartwarming passages between an alpha man and a child.

ALWAYS DEVOTED is a brand new story that carries on the Search For Love series following earlier works now turned into E-books under the titles NATHAN'S VOW and JAKE'S BRIDE (excerpts are added after the novella). All three are available on line. For more info, you can check out Ms. Smith's website at (...).

Format: Kindle Edition
Emma Henderson is a natural nurturer who has taken care of her mom until her mother died and her teenage sister Paige; she continued to do so even after she married and had a child of her own. Last year Emma's husband died in a car accident; three months ago, twenty year old Paige vanished while driving to San Francisco. The police found her car but not Paige.

Media giant Linc Granger gets Emma air time to make a plea for information involving Paige. Afterward, Linc who likes the mother and four year old daughter introduces her to his friends Jake Donovan (see Jake's Bride) and Gillian Bradley (see Nathan's Vow) who find missing people as the latter has a special paranormal "gift". As Linc and Emma are attracted to one another, each struggles with their feelings as she feels guilt and he os drowning especially with the added pressure of Becky insisting he is her buddy.

The third Search for Love drama is somewhat different in tone than Karen Rose Smith's insightful Silhouette tales but contains the author's renowned deep look at people struggling with relationships. The mystery of what happened to Paige is cleverly handled while the touch of the paranormal enhances the exciting story line. However, it is the changing relationship between the cynic, the mom, and the child who affirm that Ms. Smith is one of the best contemporary family drama authors.

This was another winner by Karen Rose Smith. I enjoyed the story and the pace of the story. It was easy to get to know the characters and follow the story. I plan on reading all the books by this author, she does a really good job of entertaining us with a story that is believable and enjoyable to read.

Supplying readers with a complete, satisfying read in a novella length story is a tall order for any writer. Not only does Ms. Smith pull it off, she draws on characters from other stories in her series. Single mother Emma Henderson and sexy Linc Granger immediately connect via their mutual attraction, but that's only half of the story. There's also the heartbreak of a missing sister to deal with. Page turner is cliche but that's exactly what Always Devoted is.

I want be reading anymore of Ms. Smith's books. The story plots were Ok but the extreme detailing of the sex act goes beyond the norm. Both the male and female think of nothing but what the do to each other .it's described in their thoughts and when they get together. I want be paying for these books that are morn porno than story. It's getting harder and harder to find a good read that isn't all about the sex act.

I enjoyed this book from cover to cover! It is very worth your time to read this book! It had a little suspense mixed in with the romance, and it was very good!
