Hello! Iâ€™m really excited to be here at Coffee Time Romance today!Â
My name is Karin Harlow and I write romance!Â I always get a kick out of saying that, as if Iâ€™m some kind of addict at an AA meeting.Â I guess you could call me an addict.Â Iâ€™m addicted to reading and writing romance.Â My debut paranormal romantic suspense- -action adventure thriller [those last three add-ons came by way of several reviewers] ENEMY LOVER, Pocket Star, releases Tuesday the 25th.Â To say Iâ€™m excited is an understatement.Â I mean the cover alone is drool-worthy, and my publisher has backed me 100% on this book.Â ENEMY LOVER is book one in the L.O.S.T. Last Option Special Team series.
But honestly, no one has worked harder on this book than me.Â It took a lot out of me.Â It took a lot out of my family and it took a lot out of Jax and Marcus, the two most important people in ENEMY LOVER.Â Talk about fitting a square peg into a circle! L.O.S.T. operative, Jax Cassidy, is a human on a mission to destroy Marcus Cross and his boss who has his eye on the white house.Â She is instructed to use whatever means necessary to achieve mission success.Â Exceptâ€¦
Houston we have a problem.
Cross is a vampire who owns the term, who likes what he is, an assassin, and who also lives for the thrill of the hunt, and the ultimate culmination: the kill. But that doesnâ€™t stop Jax.Â As one reviewer said, â€œJax puts the kick in the kickass heroine.â€Â Â I loved writing Jax. She is the first person Iâ€™d call if I needed help. I fell in love with Marcus the minute she did.
ENEMY LOVER is not for the faint of heart.Â Jax and Marcus have serious issues, issues they donâ€™t sweep under the carpet.Â Issues that have defined them and made them who they are now.Â Yet, despite those deeply rooted issues, they find a way to fall in love.Â And, to ultimately find their HEA.Â Itâ€™s why I write romance.Â I canâ€™t go all that way, invest my heart and soul into a couple who have battled themselves, the elements and the wrath of a very bad person only to not end up together!Â Â Never.Â The perilous journey will always have a just reward in my books.Â Itâ€™s why I rarely stray outside of the romance genre.Â I want the chocolate at the end.Â 🙂
