New Zealander Karina Bliss has written a biography for a rock star, swapped identities with her twin, raised three orphaned children with her ex husband, worn a cow costume to a Bachelor and Spinster ball, considered marriage for the sake of a baby, and been mayor of a small town.

Oh wait, that’s her characters.

Outside her imagination, she’s always been a professional writer, first as a travel journalist and then as a romance author. Her deeply held convictions include: love conquers all; yoga pants are daywear; and what a woman really wants is a man who cleans. Unfortunately, she does not live with one, (nor indeed has raised one). Please buy her books so she can pay for one.

She has also swum with sharks. They were very small.

I'm working on the next book in the Rock Solid series, Resurrection (Moss and Stormy's story) which should release on August 31.
So far we have: Rise, Fall (Dimity and Seth's story), and Play (Jared and Kayla's story, a novella). It's currently in the anthology, You Had Me At Christmas, with Molly O'Keefe, Stephanie Doyle, Laura Florand and Jennifer Lohmann. You can buy You Had Me At Christmas as an ebook on Amazon. Late February, I'll release it as a standalone through all retailers.
In the imagination pipeline is another book for Zander and Elizabeth and a novella for Zander's bodyguard, Luther.(less)
Karina Bliss I only need one. George R. R. Martin never publishes the next Game of Thrones book.

“I'm a very truthful person, but if the greater good is best served by a lie then I'll tell it.”
Karina Bliss, Stand-In Wife

“Her expression shut faster than a poked clam. 'I'll just get a cardigan.'
He might not be a hellraiser anymore but Devin valued his reputation. 'Haven't you got anything sexy?'
'Yes,' said Rachel, 'my mind.”
Karina Bliss, What the Librarian Did

“You know what I wish for?” she said through a tight throat. “What I
really need? A man who loves me enough to stay.”

“Liar,' he said in disgust. 'You're still playing doctors and nurses with the guy you screwed Charlie over with.' Her mouth fell open. 'Don't worry, I won't tell my brother. He's got enough to deal with.'
'I would never have an affair.'
'See here's where you and I part ways on our definition of fidelity,' he said. 'I think tonsil hockey with another man is off the agenda for a married woman. Call me old-fashioned.'
Her fury was unexpected. 'Who started that rumor...who!'
'What are you talking about? You admitted it.”
Karina Bliss, Stand-In Wife

“Everyone knows marriage is hard work. So if you've chosen the shackles, quit whining and get on with it.”
Karina Bliss, Stand-In Wife

“I'm a very truthful person, but if the greater good is best served by a lie then I'll tell it.”
Karina Bliss, Stand-In Wife

“We've had fifteen years of being grown-ups when we could have got together and we never have. Doesn't that tell you something?'
'Yeah, that timing is everything. Hit on me again now.”
