MK has always been a voracious reader. After hitting a dry spell of reading material, she decided to write the kind of book she'd like to read. This resulted in the creation of her debut novel, Intentional. (Award for Best Sweet Romance - eFestival of Words- August 2014)

Unintentional, her second book, is based on the life of one of the characters in Intentional. Unintentional was written as a stand-alone book.

Breaking Braydon and Taking Tiffany have both been released. Available on Amazon.

The Reader released August 2016.

Famous by Default is now live!

MK Is currently working on the follow up to The Reader - The Jack. (Due out late 2017)

When she's not writing novels, she likes to spend her free time traveling the world, splashing in mud puddle

The Reader by M.K. Harkins
"Spoilers ahead!

Okay, I don't know how to feel about this book.
For the first 10 or so chapters I was really enjoying the story and super into the concepts being revealed.
Then all of a sudden our heroine is a suspected murderer, but no, wait it's her" Read more of this review »
The Jack by M.K. Harkins
"I loved this story! Great continuation of characters and the pace was just right for all the action. Not steamy and not lame, I think I'm over the overly sexual books. I love her writing style and voice."

“He looks panicked for a moment. "You're not going to break my heart, are you?" I whisper, "Please don't make me.”
M.K. Harkins, Intentional

“Thank God.”
M.K. Harkins, Intentional

“Thank you God for letting me have Nancy while she was here I won’t forget I will always appreciate”
M.K. Harkins, Breaking Braydon

“Today, I saw a burst of color the same hues as the sunset: a bright orangey-pink, the train of a dress just floating there as that vision moved toward me … like a flower, when it opens, the petals begin in that deep rich color, then lighten, then darken again on the edges … it was like you’d been dipped into the horizon and given to me.”
J.B. Hartnett, Bride in Bloom

“Then let's be scared together, Anika. Let me love you the way you should be loved. We'll take each day as it comes, but we have to talk. You have to promise me that if you start to feel panicky at all, you'll tell me. Don't walk away. I want to help, I mean it.”
J.B. Hartnett, Inky

“He spoke rapidly in-between his tender kisses. "I love you. I'm sorry. I'm so sorry. The women...I was so scared to touch you. You didn't want me...I couldn't take the pain. I tried to get over you. Every time with them, I was with you. I'm so sorry...I love you.”
S.C. Stephens, Thoughtless

“So you keep your ocean, I'll take the Lake.”
Colleen Hoover, Slammed
