About this author

Kathleen Kelly Martin (aka Kathy Lawrence, Kasey Mars)

Kathleen Kelly was born on 14 July 1947 in the Central Valley of California, USA. She obtained a degree in Anthropology and also studied History at the University of California in Santa Barbara. She was a real estate broker, when she met her future husband, Larry Jay Martin. A short time after the two became acquainted, Larry asked her to read an unpublished manuscript of an historical western he'd written. Kat fell in love with both the book and the author!

We stayed in the back of a pickup camper--not for the faint-hearted. A tough trip, but I would go again in a heartbeat. I fell in love with Alaska, knew I wanted to write stories set up there. For me, Alaska is the most romantic place on earth, in a tough, challenging way. I wanted to write about the men who live there, give them the ultimate adventure and reward them with the love of their lives. (less)

“Another hour of strained silence passed. Hawk left to speak with an aquaintance in another car.
"Would you like to tell me about it?" James offered as soon as his friend was out of earshot.
Mandy looked out the window, shamefaced. "I'd really rather not discuss it, if you don't mind."
"You know, even if he is a friend, I'd be happy to black his eye if-"
"No!"
"Whatever you say." He sighed resignedly, leaning back against the tapestry seats.”

“Precisely who are you,Captain Sharpe?"
He looked into that beautiful, treacherous face and a sweep of lust rushed through him. "You want to know who I am? Well, I am the devil incarnate and you,my sweet, are about to pay the devil's due.”
Kat Martin, The Devil's Necklace

“I didn't think you would be able to find me.I was so frightened..."
He took hold of her hand, brought it to his lips. "I would have looked forever if I'd had to.”
