Karen Docter


Karen's contemporaries are cute and spicy, romantic comedies. She loves writing about real men and women with dreams and goals that don't allow for a relationship just so she can throw them in each other's path...with a tickle and a smile. "Satin Pleasures", one of her four Romance Writers of America® Golden Heart® Best Short Contemporary finalist novels, debuted on Amazon February 2012.

Her romantic suspense novels are also filled with heat, although the dangers the hero and heroine face are intense, usually because a serial killer is bent on ending one or both of their lives before they can fall in love. These are psychological, woman-in-jeopardy stories. "Killing Secrets", the first of her Thorne's Thorns series about six brothers and the women they'd die to protect, will be released January 2013.

Karen enjoys writing both sides of the line between light and dark romance. When she's not saving her characters or helping them fall in love, she loves camping and fishing with her family, reading, gardening & cooking. If she can do most of those things over a campfire, all the better.

Barb, The Reading Cafe on Catch That Santa

“This book is GREAT!! Karen did a wonderful job establishing the characters at the beginning the the story. It is short enough that even the busiest person can sit down and read it in 1 to 2 days. It is long enough so that the reader doesn't feel cheated out of the story. You won't regret buying this book. It is a MUST read!!! - 5 stars”

Christina L. Milway - RomCon Review Team Leader on Satin Pleasures

“Short, sweet story about two people whose love for their grandparents bring them on a wild ride. Just in time for Christmas, this story is sure to delight while you're listening to Bing Crosby and sipping hot cocoa! - 5 stars”

J. Kline - Kindle reviewer on Catch That Santa

“Such a cute feel-good romance! It's fluffy, sexy, and I immensely enjoyed the time I spend with Dan and Tessa. No unnecessary or implausible drama - instead a blooming romance spiced up by a couple of obstacles the main characters had to overcome, and not to forget the lemony lemons. - 4 stars”
