About Kaje Harper

I get asked about my name a lot. It's not something exotic, though. “Kaje” is pronounced just like “cage” – it’s an old nickname.

I was born in Montreal but I've lived for 30 years in Minnesota, where the two seasons are Snow-removal and Road-repair, where the mosquito is the state bird, and where winter can be breathtakingly beautiful. Minnesota’s a kind, quiet (if sometimes chilly) place and it’s home.

I’ve been writing far longer than I care to admit (*whispers – forty years*), mostly for my own entertainment, usually M/M romance (with added mystery, fantasy, historical, SciFi…) I also have a few Young Adult stories (some released under the pen name Kira Harp.)

My husband finally convinced me that after all the years of writing for fun, I really should submit something, somewhere. My first professionally published book, Life Lessons, came out from MLR Press in May 2011. I have a weakness for closeted cops with honest hearts, and teachers who speak their minds, and I had fun writing four novels and three freebie short stories in that series. I was delighted and encouraged by the reception Mac and Tony received.

I now have a good-sized backlist in ebooks and print, both free and professionally published, including Amazon bestseller "The Rebuilding Year" and Rainbow Award Best Mystery-Thriller "Tracefinder: Contact." A complete list with links can be found on my website "Books" page at

I can't describe how awesome this book is, so my only advice is to read it. It has everything - romance, suspense, action, adventure. It's pretty much the perfect book. On the edge of the seat reading! There should be many, many more books like this, preferably written by Kaje Harper!

I need more stars!
Lies and Consequences is one of those books that have been on my kindle for months, so when I started reading it I didn´t know what to expect or even what it was about.
After almost half of it, I went to check Mrs. Harper´s profile and found out more about the origins of L&C.
It´s been a while since a book consume every spare moment in my day.
I wanted to read, read & read some more.
I am in love with Ian, what an amazing character he is. He is not conflicted, very straight forward and OMG so hot and adorable.
Chris, what can I tell you about Chris? He has issues, he doesn´t trust people, he is a compulsive liar; somewhere along the line you learn to care about him and understands him.
The mix with plane crashes, kidnappings, crazy stalkers and other complications make the book interesting.
But it is all about Ian and Chris.
My words will not be enough, go read it!

Very interesting combination of elements make this a great story. You have pretending to be someone else, chance meetings, don't ask-don't tell, best friends, strange families, stalkers, the feds, and the mob. All that and a HEA, too. How can you not be on the edge of your seat.

Review by: Penelope Frost on July 21, 2011 :
I really really liked this! Very enjoyable and thrilling - found myself reading until 3 am last night.
I have to say that I don't mind the coincidences since it's what's gets the story rolling (even though they are highly unlikely to happen in real life but wth it's a great story!)!

I'm very much looking forward to Kaje Harper's next novel.

Review by: J. R. Tomlin on April 08, 2011 :
I agree with Ann Somerville that this was an enjoyable little romance. There were a couple of things that bothered me and I'll mention them to hopefully help the author. Yes, lose the "smaller man" thing. There is nothing wrong with calling a character by name. Try to depend less on coincidence or at least make the coincidence a bit less of a stretch. That they ended up on the same plane was a not so terrible, but next to each other just put it too far into the deus ex machina territory for me. EVERY single piece of dialogue doesn't need a dialogue tag and doing that gets old. Only use a tag if it is needed for the reader to tell who is speaking, which isn't that often if there are only two people in the conversation. And I needed a better reason for the character to be that good at combat than learning (from a frankly abusive father--this part needed some re-thinking) as a kid.

Nonetheless, I enjoyed the story and the storytelling. It was a very good first effort and I would pay for a the next one. The author has talent and just needs to learn some of the 'tricks' of the craft.
