"I loved joining Rose and Noah during their journey in the Temptation series by Karen Hopkins."-Katie McGarry, acclaimed YA author

Karen Ann Hopkins resides in northern Kentucky with her family on a farm that boasts a menagerie of horses, goats, sheep, peacocks, chickens, ducks, rabbits, pigs, dogs, and cats. Karen rescues and fosters a variety of pets and farm animals, but she also finds time to give riding lessons, coach a youth equestrian drill team, and of course, write. She was inspired to create her first book, Temptation, by the Amish community she lives in. The experiential knowledge she gained through her interactions with her neighbors drove the story o

I gave horse-back riding lessons on my farm and both Amish and non-Amish teens hung around together in the arena. I saw a lot of friendships forged and flirting going on and the idea of Rose and Noah's forbidden love story blossomed in my mind.(less)

Free From Sin by Karen Ann Hopkins
"I absolutely love a good thriller and this book had me on the edge of my seat! About halfway through the book, I thought I solved 1 of the crimes. Then Mrs. Hopkins, gives another intriguing clue and I find out I am wrong. A really enjoyable read!"
Free From Sin by Karen Ann Hopkins
"5 star+

Karen Ann Hopkins has always been one of my favorite Authors. There's never once been a book I've read by her that I didn't absolutely love. Looking forward to continuing on with this series."
Free From Sin by Karen Ann Hopkins
"This book kept me guessing. I’d say it was medium paced. Not quite a page turner, but a good read overall."
Karen Hopkins answered Natalie's question: Karen Ann Hopkins
Hi Natalie. This one has been delayed until 2023 unfortunately. Sorry! You might want to check out Willow Creek, which is an Amish themed forbidden love story for new adults. Happy reading!

Quotes by Karen Ann Hopkins  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“It was strange how in that moment of tragedy, it had seemed so unreal, like an old-fashioned movie reel playing on a screen for my eyes only. The pain and broken heart were blocked off for a little while, leaving me numb with disbelief. Shock is what Dad called it. But after a while, the cruel reality started to seep into my tissues, and my body became a sponge, just sucking it all up until, finally, there was so much grief inside, I couldn't help feeling it.
That's how it happened for me. First, the numbness right after she died, next the agonising pain and then the place I was at now—the land of perpetual depression.”
Karen Ann Hopkins, Temptation

“Pressing my head to his heart, I listened hard, straining to hear any gurgle or murmur of life. Hearing nothing, I felt the shock settle into my mind, slowing it down and then turning it off.
"Don't leave me, Noah. Please, don't go," I whispered into the darkness as the light spray of rain touched my face.
If only I could turn back time.
I would tell him yes.”
Karen Ann Hopkins, Temptation

“I'd never reacted to a girl this way before. My body was on fire when I was around Rose, and when I wasn't with her, all I did was think about her. Today had been the longest day of my life, dragging on forever until it was finally time to go meet her in the field.”
Karen Ann Hopkins, Temptation

“Success is sweeter and sweeter if long delayed and gotten through many struggles and defeats.”
Amos Bronson Alcott

“There can be no assumption that today's majority is 'right' and the Amish and others like them are 'wrong.' A way of life that is odd or even erratic, but interferes with no rights or interest of others is not to be condemned because it is different.”
Warren E. Burger Spupreme Court Justice
