“Heart of the Storm”


“Heart of Fire”

Discussion, Book signing and reception with romance author, Karen Kinna

Synopsis of Book 1: "Heart of the Storm"

When zoologist Quinn Gallagher is sent into a Cat 3 hurricane to rescue the furred and feathered residents of a fledgling zoo on the wind-swept banks of Lake Charles, Louisiana, she isn't prepared for the stiff opposition of Head Curator and Veterinarian, Dan Taylor.  Stealing his coffee, his pride, and eventually his heart, Quinn is a force to be reckoned with in this madcap tale chock-full of zany characters and even crazier getaway vehicles.  Forging a shaky alliance based on sheer preservation, Quinn and Dan race against the clock and Mother Nature on a wild and wacky ride toward love and safety... not necessarily in that order.


Book 2: “Heart of Fire”

When beleaguered cattle rancher, Brody Gallagher, answers the door to pregnant dark-haired beauty, Tess Taylor, he is unable to send her packing and her arrival compounds the strange activities that have been plaguing the ranch.  An arsonist is on the loose and neither Brody nor the local police can get a lead on the culprit.

Worried about finances, cut fences and increasingly violent fires, Brody and Tess are thrown together in the fight of their lives, sparking a raging inferno of passion which threatens to consume them both.


Karen lives near Austin, Texas, on 14 wooded acres in the Texas Hill Country, with her family and  5 (extremely snorty) French Bulldogs. When she isn't writing, she worships the sun happily on the porch of her Canadian Pine log home.  Her hobbies include cycling, boating, reading voraciously, and crochet.  She is passionate about ethical dog breeding laws and owns an up-and-coming show kennel. She loves kids and is a girl scout trainer and a former nanny!


Since relocating from Canada to Texas in 2004, Karen has been a proud member of the Romance Writers of America and served one term as vice-president of the San Antonio Romance Authors.

Finally "Living The Dream" and writing full-time, Karen is focused on bringing romance fans pulse-racing contemporary love stories featuring real-life heroines and hunky heroes in a variety of modern settings.

This event is free and open to the public.
