Ghost of a Chance reissue

Twenty years ago, if anyone had told Karen Woods that she'd be making her living as a fiction writer, she would have said they had the wrong woman. Now she considers it fun to make a living at what she'd do for amusement anyway. Karen writes romantic intrigue, historical romance, futuristic romance, and gothics. Karen was presented with the 2007 Patricia Lucas White Service Award given to honor her exemplary service to EPIC.

Karen's thrillers MAGGIE'S HUNT and STALKING THE PHOENIX are available from The Fiction Works. Look for her new action/adventure/romantic suspense Subrosa Series, including NO DEFENSE, Book 1 (available now); HIDING IN THE SPOTLIGHT, Book 2 (available now); and MEXICAN STANDOFF, Book 3.

Karen's regency romances RELUCTANT COUNTESS and SUITORS AND SCOUNDRELS are available from Awe-Struck eBooks. Her newest releases are: the reissue of Ghost of a Chance, originally published in Jewels of the Quill’s first Halloween anthology; LIAR’S CHANCE; A MOTHER’S EYES (historical inspirational fiction), a 2012 EPIC Award winner (Spiritual/Metaphysical category); THE BISHOP'S DAUGHTER (inspirational Regency romance); and GET GERI (inspirational romantic suspense), available from Sleeping Beagle Books. Her futuristic romance, THE ONLY ONE, will be revised and reissued as LARA’S LEGACY soon by Sleeping Beagle Books.
