The Princess and the Wolf
The Clan of the Wolf Book 1
by Karen Kay
Genre: Historical Romance
TWO HEARTS BETRAYED
Refusing to believe the rumors that the European prince she was forced to marry had died in a far-off land, the princess, Sierra, sets sail to America, bent on revenge and determined to learn the truth. Because she will require a scout to guide her through the wilderness, she calls in a favor from the man who had betrayed her long ago, the man she had once loved deeply and had hoped to wed, the noble Cheyenne scout, High Wolf.
Many years before, a European prince had invited High Wolf to travel an ocean and as a brother, to live as a member of the royal family. There High Wolf had fallen in love with the princess, Sierra. But instead of an engagement and the planned wedding, the princess had treacherously married his friend, the prince. Betrayed and broken-hearted, High Wolf sailed back to America, determined to forget the princess. But a promise given to her years earlier brings her back into his life, igniting a desire he must resist, for to surrender to her again is unthinkable.
Forced into one another’s company, with the threat of life or death around every corner, overcoming their prejudice might be their only means of survival. But can either of them trust in a love, once betrayed? Or will their past force them apart again, this time forever?...
This book has been previously published.
Warning: A sensuous romance that might fan the flames of desire. Be warned. You might fall in love all over again.
Brave Wolf and the Lady
The Clan of the Wolf Book 2
He saved her life, then stole her heart….
To escape an arranged marriage, Mia Carlson, daughter of a U.S. senator, instead elopes with the man she loves. As they are escaping from her Virginia home, heading west, their wagon train is brutally attacked, leaving Mia alone and in grave danger. Rescue comes from a most unlikely source, a passing Lakota scouting party, led by the darkly handsome Indian, Brave Wolf.
Although Brave Wolf has consented to guide Mia to the nearest trading post, he holds himself apart from her, for his commitments lie elsewhere. But long days on the trail lead to a deep connection with the red-haired beauty. Yet, he can’t stop wondering why death and danger stalk this beautiful woman, forcing him to rescue her time and again. Who is doing this, and why?
One thing is clear, however: Amid the flurry of dodging assassin bullets, Brave Wolf and Mia come into possession of a powerful love. But is it all for naught? Will Brave Wolf’s obligations and Mia’s secret enemy from the past finally succeed in the sinister plot to destroy their love forever?

Thank you so much for hostessing the blog today. So nice to see such a beautiful blog site.ReplyDelete
Sounds interesting. Thanks for the opportunityReplyDelete
It looks like a very romantic cover. My question is where do you get your ideas for your books.ReplyDelete
Love it! The cover intrigues me! What inspires you?ReplyDelete
Thank you so much for your post. Appreciate it.
Very good question. Ideas come from life and also from research. Usually the idea for the story comes from some sort of historical event or from life itself. Scenes come from the characters as they become more and more alive for me, and also from research. But many of my scenes are from the characters coming alive and they then run the show, so to speak, if that makes sense.

Another really good question. The Native American culture in general inspires me -- mostly because they have gotten a rather bad rap from several Hollywood pictures -- particularly those of the 50's and 60's. In doing research, I am struck over and over again of the ideals that were embodied in their cultures, and it's that which I like to write about. Like all peoples in all places there are those who do good and those who do bad. Unfortunately the "bad" have been characterized in several movies, and so I like to take a different look and write about the very real traits that are so inspiring; i.e. honesty, keeping one's word once given, being in tune with the environment, etc.
