A New Release

by Karen Rose Smith

Along with my Kensington cozy mysteries, I also write romances for Harlequin.  I was so pleased when they asked me to participate in a new continuity series--Furever Yours.  The series centers around a pet rescue center in North Carolina.  My novel in the series is THE NANNY CLAUSE which will be released on March 19 in print and on April first as an e-book.  The hero and heroine's love story revolves around his three adorable daughters and a pregnant stray cat that becomes a part of his family.  

It was easy for me to write the feline birthing scenes because my husband and I had experienced the event with a pregnant stray cat we found in our backyard and took into our home.  She had her litter of kittens under the desk in my office.  It was awe-inspiring to watch the birth and the immediate bonding Halo developed with her three kittens.  

We found good homes for two of the kittens and kept Halo and her firstborn Miss Paddington.  Four years later, the two of them still have a special bond...they eat together and share the solitude of my office at night. 

Here is a preview for THE NANNY CLAUSE:

Three kids.  One pregnant cat.  And one perfect nanny…

When Daniel Sutton's daughters rescue an abandoned calico, the hardworking attorney doesn't expect to be sharing his home with a litter of newborns!  And the adorable kittens aren't his only house guests.  Animal shelter volunteer Emma Alvarez is transforming the lives of Daniel and his three girls.  The first-time nanny is a natural with kids and pets.  Will that extend to a single father ready to trust in love again?
