Single mom, Emma Henderson’s worry about her missing sister threatens to overshadow her life. Media mogul Linc Granger offers Emma help, first by airing a nation-wide interview and then… By suggesting Emma consult with his friend Gillian Bradley who has a “gift” for finding missing persons.
As Emma and Linc walk the beach and she considers his unorthodox suggestion, Emma realizes she feels a sizzle of attraction to this man that she never felt with another–not even her late husband. Linc Granger is out of her league in so many ways. Yet her four-year-old daughter Becky believes he’s her new best friend!
Emma and Linc’s chemistry is impossible to deny as they consult with Gillian and follow leads to find Paige. What happens when their attraction explodes and they do find answers? Will Emma be able to leave the past behind to find a future with Linc?

Other friends of Linc’s are introduced–Zack Burke and Tessa Kahill. They have their own SEARCH FOR LOVE novels! Gillian also helps reunite another family in HER SISTER, Book 7 in the series.
“Karen Rose Smith always writes romances that touch the heart. They are quick reads with characters that we the readers can relate to.” Kathy Andrico, www.kathysreviewcorner.com
Karen Rose Smith’s plots are all about emotion. She began writing in her early teens when she listened to music and created stories to accompany the songs. After expressing feelings in poetry, earning a degree in English and French, completing short stories that became too long to find a market, she turned to her fascination with relationships, writing romances and now mysteries. This award-winning best-selling author (USA Today List, Borders Bestseller List, Amazon Romance Bestseller lists) will see her 80th novel released in 2013. She has published with Silhouette, Harlequin, Kensington and Meteor/Kismet. Her awards include two Golden Leaf awards in short contemporary romance, the Golden Quill in traditional romance, two cataromance.com’s awards for Best Special Editions and Romance Review’s Today’s Best series romance award. Jane Bowers of Romance Reviews Today states: “Karen Rose Smith’s storyworlds are complete and realistic and lovely places to visit and revisit. She excels at stories that feature couples brought together by infants and children, and she handles her plots and characters with sublime sensitivity.”
Karen is well-known for writing emotion. An only child, she spent a lot of time in her imagination and with books Nancy Drew, Zane Gray, The Black Stallion and Anne of Green Gables. She dreamed of brothers and sisters and a big family like her mother and father came from–seven children in her mom’s family and ten in her dad’s. On weekends she was often surrounded by aunts, uncles and cousins. This is the root of her plotlines that include small communities and family relationships as part of everyday living. She believes universal emotions unite us all and that is the reason she employs them to propel her plots.
It is no secret that Karen married her college sweetheart and they have been married for over thirty years. She believes in the power of commitment and the hope that goes along with the promise of everlasting love. Along with enjoying time with her husband, Karen enjoys cooking, gardening, shopping, listening to music and keeping her two cats company or vice versa.
She has been busy reformatting her backlist for sale on Kindle. In addition, she writes Harlequin Special Editions and will see the debut of a mystery series for Kensington soon. Readers can follow her on Facebook (Search–Karen Rose Smith)or on Twitter @karenrosesmith.
