Aftermath - Karen L. Abrahamson
After surviving the attempted destruction of the American Midwest, Vallon and her allies face an even greater danger: Homeland Security’s decision to destroy all Gifted – those people who can rewrite the landscape using only their minds. In a breakneck race to save her kind, Vallon rushes back to Seattle, only to find that friends are not really friends and nothing is what it seems. Will circumstances force her to break every moral code to stop an imminent war between Gifted and unGifted?
Karen L. Abrahamson establishes the American Geological Survey series as a thriller roller coaster of a ride within the urban fantasy genre. A fantastic story of cartographic magic, danger and betrayal, Aftermath will grab readers by the throat and drag them through to the end. Unputdownable.

When star investigative reporter Kaitlin ‘Seattle’ Blackwood arrives in Cambodia to look for her missing father, she drops right into the middle of the mystery her father left behind. To make matters worse, two strangers try to abduct her and the one man she had hoped never to see again rescues her. B.J. McCallum¾ ex-lover, ex-man of her dreams, ex-photojournalist¾ almost ruined her career when his exploded. He comes complete with his own heap of troubles: a murdered monk, stolen rubies and missing orphans, all might be linked to her father’s disappearance. Can Kaitlin and B.J. quit fighting long enough to solve the case and survive in a country where people have a habit of disappearing?
Once again, Karen L. McKee hits just the right note of humor as she leads readers on a romantic adventure, this time through the exotic, flooded landscapes of Cambodia during monsoon season. Shadow Play is a cross between Romancing the Stone and Raiders of the Lost Ark, a fantastic romp with wonderful characters and an authentic setting.

Terra Incognita is being promoted through BookBlast today (Here) and is available for $0.99 on Amazon through this weekend.
Here’s the blurb:
Terra Vargas lives on an Earth shattered by climate change in a city threatened by fierce marauders—the deepee—who destroyed her family. When a young man, Ravi Sanghera, arrives with a destiny of his own—to rid the earth of the “Destroyer of World”, Terra learns she inherited powers she neither understands nor wants—powers that might contain the secret to preserving or destroying the only home she knows.
Now Ravi faces a terrible choice, follow his vision and kill Terra… Or abandon the reason he traveled halfway around the shattered planet, and help her stop the deepee.
The answer lies in their future, but first they must survive.
At long last I can announce the publication of book two in my American Geological Survey series!

Aftershock returns readers to the world of Afterburn, where those with the Gift can rewrite the landscape with the stroke of a pen—literally.
Only the secret agents of the American Geological Survey preserve America from a massive Gift-induced quake that threatens the country’s heartland. But when problem-child agent Vallon Drake inherits the job, it can only mean trouble. In a tale as steamy as the sultry heat of the Mississippi Valley, can Vallon deal with the Gifted culprit and stop the destruction?
Readers looking for more of Vallon and her mysterious lover are going to love it!

And coming this month in print.
I’m thrilled to announce the latest Karen L. McKee equestrian-based romance novel, A Different Nightmusic.
For Oklahoma girl Trisha ‘Monty’ Montgomery, going to Lake Farm to escape her past and to breed a top jumping horse might be her one chance at a new life. But the shame of poverty and a past with men she isn’t proud of taints her attraction to the taciturn Jack Lake, the mysterious owner of Lake Farm.
When a flaming white horse gallops across her path and causes her to crash her truck, Monty ends up stranded at Lake Farm. Trapped as much by her pride as by lack of money, she soon finds herself entangled in mysterious goings-on: Is the flaming horse real? What is making the stable’s stallion go mad in the middle of the night?
And most of all, is Jack her enemy or her fate—the man who will send her stumbling back to a life of shame, or the man who will help her move on to a new life?
Available for sale on Amazon, Smashwords and Kobo.
I’m pleased to announce the publication of a romance novella called ‘The Rescue’. The story is based loosely on the fact that I broke my leg in January just like Amanda did in the story. The difference was, I fell on ice, not wet wood and I never had a handsome search and rescue man come and rescue me. Sigh.
I had to walk out.
I hope you enjoy the story. Here is the blurb:
The Rescue, by Karen L. McKee
Amanda Ripper escaped a controlling husband who convinced her that she was weak and an invalid. To convince herself that it wasn’t true, she fills her life with friends and hiking and refuses to become involved with anyone again. Then she falls and breaks her leg, reigniting the specter of her old life. Can a handsome man from search and rescue to give Amanda a chance at life again?

I’m thrilled that Twisted Root Publishing has just released two Karen L. McKee e-book romantic short stories at Amazon and other on-line retailers.
As a gift to my readers, this short story is for free from now until January 1st. I’m thrilled to provide another wintry tale (maybe it’s because we just got our first good snowfall of the year and the entire city is shut down). This one takes us back to medieval times and a small clearing in a forest. And of course it’s a romance with horses.
Click here. Sorry the Freebie has come down. Watch for a new one this month.
It must be the season but I’ve found myself writing romances and family stories over the past month. As a result a number of new Karen L. McKee stories have gone up on line.
In addition, Karen L. Abrahamson published two stories set in the far east. One involves romance gone wrong and the other focuses on growing up and family–in a not so nice situation.
