Karen Chance Yep, absolutely. Should be one out next year. :-)
Karen Chance Not to sound flippant, but as many as it takes to finish the story. But you will see a lot of forward momentum in this one. Thanks for your question.…moreNot to sound flippant, but as many as it takes to finish the story. But you will see a lot of forward momentum in this one. Thanks for your question. :-)(less)

Norwegian Midnight's Daughter


The Norwegian version of Midnight’s Daughter just arrived. I wish you could see it in person, because the eyes and lips were made super, super shiny! It’s really sort of hysterical. Like when Dory gets mad and her . . . lips glow? Lol, I don’t know. But anyway, I have five to give away. If you read Norwegian and want one, send an email to KarenChance@hotmail.com. First come, first served.

“He smiled at that, and then his gaze shifted to a spot over my shoulder and it faded. 'These doubts wouldn’t have anything to do with the company you’re keeping of late, would they?'
I didn’t get a chance to answer before the shop door was thrown open and a furious war mage stomped in. Pritkin spotted me and his eyes narrowed.
'You shaved my legs?!'
Mircea looked at me and folded his arms across his chest. I looked from one unhappy face to the other and suddenly remembered that I had somewhere else to be.”
Karen Chance, Curse the Dawn

“And I just couldn't take it anymore. I closed the distance between us, slammed him back against the chair and kissed him, holding his head still with both my hands buried in that stupid, stupid hair. I half expected more resistance, because Pritkin had never met an argument he didn't like. So it was a shock when he ran his hands down my sides, cupped my hips and slid us both to the floor.
"I'm going straight to hell for this," he muttered.
"At least you'll know a lot of people," I said breathlessly. ”
Karen Chance, Curse the Dawn

“My lord...I can explain-," Louis-Cesare began, looking less than certain that he could do anything of the kind.
Radu held up a hand. "I am sure there is a perfectly good reason why my niece is naked and tied to her bed. I am also equally certain that I do not wish to hear it".”
Karen Chance, Midnight's Daughter
