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.

I absolutely LOVED The Wedding Promise! Karen Rose Smith definitely has a powerful gift, which she lovingly shares with her readers. I was already hooked on some of her other series, but this one I could not put down!

As a beta reader, I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an unbiased review. I can honestly say that I would have gladly paid for the opportunity to read and review another of Karen Rose Smith's books. She continues to hold my attention and interest, book after book after book.
In The Wedding Promise, the story continues with Beth Crandall, who has recently discovered that her life as she knew it - as the adopted daughter in the Crandall family - has many secrets that she still needs to discover and deal with. She's recently moved to be near to her biological family, the one she was stolen from when she was only three years old. Beth continues to grow closer to her sister, Clare, her niece, and her parents (Max and Amanda) as she deals with the emotional ups and downs she experiences.
In addition, Beth has begun to develop feelings for a prominent plastic surgeon, who has things in his own past that he hasn't quite resolved. Together, can they overcome the obstacles in their way? Read the book to find out all the details!
