Karen Rose - Kill For Me, It's Here and You can Win It

Karen Rose has done it again. Yep, her world is amazing and although it doesn't, there might should be a keep the light on sign with her books.

She keeps you turning pages, staying up late, and perhaps sleeping with one eye open.

Here's the inside jacket blurb:

Six teenage girls have been kidnapped. Five have been murdered. One survived. Only she can reveal the secrets of a disturbing ring of people who kidnap and sell teenage girls on the black market. But those responsible for the crimes will do whatever it takes to maintain her silence.

Susannah Vartanian and Luke Papadopoulos have both sworn to stop the murderers for their own personal reasons. The investigation will lead them to the shady realm of Internet chat rooms, where anyone can mask their identity. They soon discover a chain of deception so intricate they don't know who to trust. Finding comfort in each other's arms, they begin to unravel the intricately knotted threads, but the killers are ruthless and determined, and won't hesitate to take extreme measures to insure their anonymity and keep their business intact. When Susannah discovers an unexpected link to the girl she is trying to save, her life is soon in danger and Luke will do everything he can to save the woman he loves.

Karen may stop by this week, so if you have any questions leave them with your comments. I'm hoping to have an interview with her on Wednesday.

As always your comments can be anytime during the week, leave one each day to be entered more often.

Writing Wishes and Plotting Dreams,

I keep hearing good things about Karen but haven't ever read her. I may have to fix that.

CrystalGB said...

Kill For Me sounds great. :)

lastnerve said...

Holy Moly, that sounds like an awesome book! Please throw my name in the hat!

Judy said...

I have read several of Karen's books and I really enjoy them. I really enjoy the titles she picks.

Karen, do you name your own books or does someone else do this?

donnas said...

I have not had a chance to read one of Karen's books yet but Kill for Me sounds excellant and looks like a good one to start with.

Jill James said...

I love Karen, she is my hero. I want to write like Karen when I grow up. LOL

I feel like I've been waiting forever for this book.

Vicki said...

Brandy - you will love Karen's books, you'll tremble under the covers and want the lights on, but wow, she is amazing!

CrystalGB - Hey girl, glad to see you.

lasstnerve - You're thrown in and yeah, holy moly is right.

Judy - thanks for coming by and it's true, her title are great.

donnas - All of them are great and this one doesn't disapoint. Heck, what am I saying, nothing Karen writes disapoints. Well, other than having to wait for the next one. heehee

Jill - LOL, she's mine too.

LKap said...

Amazing writer - good luck everyone - **me shivering under my covers**....LOL

Brandy W said...

I guess I'll have to sleep with the kids then so I don't get scared and lonely.

TamiC said...

Oh my goodness I have the first 2 in this series that would be awesome if I could win the 3rd!


Anne-Marie said...

Hi Vicki and Laurie. I agree, Karen is an awesome writer and stories that you'll want to read in broad daylight -- with one eye open. lol I love your new look.

Vicki said...

Hey TamiC - thanks for coming by and hope you come back.

AM - thanks on the new look, I love it. And oh yeah, the one eye open thing...heehee

Karen Rose said...

Hi everyone, thanks for the lovely welcome, Vicki!

Judy, thank you :-) Actually, KILL FOR ME is my 9th book and I've named 2.5 of them. My editor named the rest - she is a very skilled title creator.

I named COUNT TO TEN, KILL FOR ME and SCREAM FOR ME, kind of (SFM is the 0.5 name). I'd wanted to name Vito and Sophie's book SCREAM FOR ME, but at the time everyone at my house liked DIE FOR ME instead. They decided to name Daniel and Alex's book SCREAM FOR ME, but because I'd thought of it first, I take half credit!

Karen Rose said...

Donna, if you're going to start with a book, you should either start with book 1, DON'T TELL, or with book 7 DIE FOR ME. DIE FOR ME, SCREAM FOR ME and KILL FOR ME are a trilogy. The other 6 books stand alone, but have connecting characters.

You don't have to read any of them in order, but it's more fun when you do.

Karen Rose said...

Jill, that is so sweet :-) Thank you!

Karen Rose said...

Laurie and Anne-Marie, Thanks girls!

Vicki - I agree on your new do. Very "Rogue-ish."

Good luck to everybody on the drawing!
