Award-winning author Karen Rose Smith was born in Pennsylvania. Although she was an only child, she remembers the bonds of an extended family. She and her parents lived with her grandfather and aunt until she was five when her parents built a house next door. Since her father came from a family of ten and her mother, a family of seven, there were always aunts, uncles and cousins visiting on weekends. Family is a strong theme in her books and she suspects her childhood memories are the reason.
As a teenager, music became as important to Karen as reading. The Beatles were her favorite group. But she and her cousin took their first sojourn into writing by collaborating on a script for the MONKEES television program. They sent that script to every concert venue where the group appeared that summer!
In college, Karen began writing poetry and also met her husband to be. They both began married life as teachers, but when their son was born, Karen decided to try her hand at a home-decorating business. She returned to teaching for a while but changes in her life led her to writing romance fiction. Now she writes full time.
Her first romance was published in 1992; her 80th romance will be published in 2013. A winner of New Jersey's Golden Leaf Award in Short Contemporary Romance, Colorado Romance Writers Award Of Excellence for short contemporary, as well as the Phoenix Desert Rose Chapter's Golden Quill for Traditional Romance, she has also been honored with Cataromance.com's award for Best Special Edition. Her romances have made both the USA TODAY list, and the Amazon Romance and Contemporary Romance Bestseller lists.
Karen's SEARCH FOR LOVE ebook series will soon be available in audiobooks as well as ebooks. She has added book 7, HER SISTER, a contemporary women's fiction novel to the series. As well as indie publishing, she writes Harlequin Special Editions and will see the debut of a mystery series for Kensington in December 2013. Readers can follow her on Facebook (Search--Karen Rose Smith)or on Twitter @karenrosesmith. They can also contact her through her websites at www.karenrosesmith.com and www.karenrosesmithmysteries.com. She welcomes interaction with her readers and would love to chat about plotlines, titles, emotions, heroes, heroines, music, books, gardening, cooking, or anything else readers deem noteworthy!

This was a great sneak up on you out of left field romance. Something that you just didn't expect to work, and it managed to work out great. After reading this book I bought several others written by the author, and love her writing.

Having just read KRS's MOM MEETS DAD, I absolutely couldn't wait to start on KIT AND KISSES. KRS's captivating talent is once again portrayed in this AWESOME book and hooks me from the start. By the end of her book, I was saddened because I want them to go on and on! But, they must end, and, thankfully, there is another of her sweet books waiting to be read!
KIT AND KISSES is a sweet, emotion filled story about letting go,trusting, and moving on. From the start, Kit Saunders and Greyson "Grey" Corey couldn't stop the passionate sparks and kisses that flew every time they were near each other. Through lots (and I do mean LOTS!) of electrifying kisses, Kit and Grey learn about themselves, and each other, and what it means to truly, truly trust someone enough to find that happy life.
Another humor filled, emotionally touching 5 star story. Each Karen Rose Smith book I read now, is another fantastic winner, reminding me again why I am happy to be a new fan of Karen Rose Smith. Already, I am anxious to try her book, LOVE IN BLOOM (it's sitting on my Nook, calling my name). So, if you're new to Karen Rose Smith and her sweet stories, why not start with KIT AND KISSES? You'll LOVE it!
