Award-winning author Karen Rock is both sweet and spicy--at least when it comes to her writing! The author of both YA and adult contemporary books writes red-hot novels for Harlequin Blaze and small-town romances for Harlequin Heartwarming. A strong believer in Happily-Ever-After, Karen loves creating unforgettable stories that leave her readers with a smile. When she's not writing, Karen is an avid reader who's typically immersed in three different books at a time, all in different genres. She also loves cooking her grandmother's Italian recipes, baking, Christmas (no need to specify--she loves every bit of it), and having the Adirondack Park wilderness as her backyard, where she lives with her husband, daughter, dog and cat who keep her life interesting and complete.
