Her mother lived a lie. Now with her very public mother dead, Kit has to deal with her younger half-brothers who believe she's their aunt, with her mother's self-righteous family who are trying to blackmail her, and with her own ex-husband whom she still loves but knows she cannot trust.
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.
