About the author:
Sandra writes her stories of love from a sweetheart-of-a-town in Colorado. With the majestic Rocky Mountains, family, and friends to inspire her she never lacks for ideas.
Born in upstate New York, she is officially the only Yankee in the family (and yes, a die-hard Yankees fan), as the rest were born in Kentucky. If you ever speak to her in person, don't be surprised when a "y'all" pops out.
Sandra has always loved words. By seventh grade she should have known she would be a writer, when much to the regret of her classmates, she chose idiosyncrasies as a spelling word. One of the high points of her life was the first time she beat her mother at Scrabble!
When asked why she started writing she will tell you it is because if she doesn't the characters running around in her head won't let her sleep. No, she's not crazy (though her two sons would debate that claim). The problem is, while she was busy during the day with her day job and family, the only time her characters had a chance to play and work through plot problems was when she got ready to sleep. To solve this dilemma, she would take some time before bed to let them play and get their issues on the page. Amazingly, it worked well for everyone involved.
Now her characters get plenty of attention as people who know her are constantly asking how her writing is going or what a certain character is doing. Never wanting to let anyone down, she writes whenever she has a spare few minutes. This has lead to fifteen manuscripts.
She belongs to Romance Writers of America and two of its chapters as well as Crested Butte Writers. She has won several writing awards. Her first contest win was for a short contemporary romance titled 24K Nanny. It was the first time she'd ever entered a contest. The thrill of having others enjoy her work that much insured that she continued to write. She has since placed and won in numerous contests.
Now she writes primarily Romantic Suspense with an occasional dabble in Futuristic/Fantasy Romance. Her favorite sister, okay, her only sister said of one of Sandra's manuscripts, "I knew there was a dark side to you." Don't worry. Though she can write some nasty villains, the romance is still, and always will be, primary for Sandra.
Rose of Steele
Sandra S Kerns
Garrett Steele is an undercover operative for Clandestine Operations. His assignment is to root out the discrepancies at Blackthorn Ltd. He's just finishing his assignment when everything falls apart. He barely escapes with his life and since it appears his cover is blown he is forced to take a vacation. Vacation isn't a word in Garrett's dictionary. His complicated past has made him focus on work and forget about relationships or life outside of work. With few friends and no idea of what to do with the forced time off, he gets in touch with his only real friend and co-worker and sets off to Colorado.
Unknown to Garrett he is about to run into the one person he would rather not see. Carly Rose. Carly Rose is the little sister of his best friend William and one of the reasons Garrett has never been able to commit to a relationship.
Carly Rose has grown up since she last saw Garrett at seventeen. She's no longer a teenager with a crush on her brother's college roommate; she's the owner of the Wild Rose bar.
When the two meet once again old sparks are ready to flame but a number of "accidents" involving both Garrett's last assignment and Carly's bar being threatened may douse them before they get a chance to ignite. It's a race against time that takes Garrett from New York to Colorado and back again in an effort to save his job and Carly's life.
