Early years[ edit ] Karen Robards sold her first story in As a teenager working part-time for her orthodontist father, Robards saw a Readers Digest solicitation for funny anecdotes. She quickly penned and submitted a two-paragraph story. After researching what types of books were selling well, Robards chose to write a historical romance, not realizing that she would be required to read her work aloud to the class. Although her professor and classmates laughed at her choice of subject matter, those 50 pages became the basis for her first book, Island Flame.

This is a blog for avid readers and authors of historical romance. I started it to help other readers find the good ones Come join us! March is Irish month on the blog… Irish heroes and heroines in various settings and eras as well as stories set in Ireland. Seduced by her guardian, Justin, Earl of Weston, at his estate in Ireland when she was 17, Megan Kindead is made to pay the price.
And oh, how she pays. In return, the young innocent fell in love. Of course, he forgot to tell her one thing: he could not marry her as he was already married. Finding she is pregnant, Megan knows to give her child a name, she must wed and soon. Megan is a high-spirited young woman with courage and convictions. I loved her. Justin was an otherwise honorable nobleman who was obsessed with his ward. He would have her no matter the consequences, even making her his whore when he could not make her his wife.
Originally published in the original cover which has so much more emotion , it is just as good today. The emotions are at times subtle, at times violent, but in all, believable. And the tension is non-stop. Robards is simply a master of this sort of romance and I count myself among her many fans. She always tells a great, lusty story. This book grabbed my attention and would not let me go.
Stop by and say hey. You should probably know going in that things happen within this book that are not okay by me. There is some dubious consent, some unfair and ugly name calling, and some unpleasant slapping of all the cheeks. The hero is also a classic alpha-hole and the virginal heroine sees him as a stand-in daddy figure.
