About this author

Kara Thorpe started writing as a distraction in French class and never stopped (just don’t ask her to conjugate many verbs). Born and raised in Texas, she loves all things historical, scientific, and downright geeky. Though she prefers to write short, character-driven stories, she ventured into the world of the novel with the first book of the Family Lies series "Daughter of Deception."

I am an idiot.

Those of you who don't know me may think that's a harsh statement. Those of you who do know me may think that it's not harsh enough. Either way, it's true.

I'm busy. I like a little stress, so normally I don't mind being busy. During the fall I have: work, a full class schedule (business law isn't as scary as I thought it would be but statistics is killing me), normal family/house... Read more of this blog post »

Better than most of the vampire books flooding the shelves. The mystery portion was nice as was the romance.
A good book that could have had a stronger ending, but one that I enjoyed nonetheless. Perfect book for a rainy afternoon.

Audiobook didn't do anything for me. It is a standard NR book, so I knew what to expect, but the narrator made it hard to listen for more than half an hour at a time.
