 I am not as active on certain social media sites any longer. I rarely go to Facebook or Instagram. I am on Twitter more ( and even then, not as much in the past). I have deactivated Pinterest. I do not go to Goodreads (haven't for years), so there will be no updates there. I opened an account at Threads as a backup if Twitter-X implodes. Links below.

Words of Praise for Karyn Gerrard's books:

5 STARS! Extremely well written, full of action, steam, romance, intrigue, adventures, surprises, villains, and history with lots of twists and turns. Definitely a page-turner. Great book to curl up and enjoy. Would strongly recommend it. ~Reviewer Rose The Viscount of Shadows

5 STARS! Very well done. Ms. Gerrard takes her readers on quite the adventure in this, plus weaves the intrigue and romance throughout. The character development in this book is huge. It captures your attention and holds it until the very end. I do highly recommend this book. ~JenReviews4U The Not So Perfect Duke

5 STARS! This is an exceptionally written story that deals with many issues of the times. The entire cast of characters was very interesting and kept the story moving at a fast pace. The story is filled with romance, heartaches, passion, and betrayals. The more I read, the faster I needed to turn the pages. I enjoyed this adult story that handles many complicated situations. ~CS, Reviewer-AMAZON The Duke of Pain

5 STARS! Wow, talk about a book that grabs the reader. This one is completely captivating. The characters and plot were engaging I loved every minute of it. Do yourself a favor and pick this one up. It was outstanding. ~Crystal Crossings Vine Voice  Protecting the Duke

5 STARS! This was a well-written story that kept me guessing and anxious to find out all that had happened to Lydia. The characters were well-rounded and made my heart tug for them. I loved Harrison for his good heart and protectiveness and could only hope he would follow his heart. I highly recommend it! ~Lori Dykes, Reviewer The Marquess of Secrets

5 STARS! "I have found a new author, and she tells a wonderful story. Riordan is the kindest hero; I love the man he is! Sabrina is broken but trying to find happiness. Their journey is touching. Looking forward to the rest of the stories!!" ~Marianne NetGalley review  Marriage with a Proper Stranger

"Packing all of that characterization and emotional impact into a short story of less than twenty-one thousand words shows Karyn Gerrard's formidable writing talent, and makes her my new must-read author." ~The Jeep Diva ~The Governess and the Beast 

5 STARS! Wow, just wow. What a fun and unique concept mixed with some pretty hot romance. I absolutely adored this story. Cailin and Skye are both wonderful characters." Shari V ~My Highlander Cover Model

"5 STARS! A mix of Beauty & The Beast, Frankenstein, and The Portrait of Dorian Gray. Set in 1895. Dark and slightly Gothic in style with great writing. An original story and lots of steamy scenes. Can't wait for the next book in the series (this can be read as a stand-alone) I love all this author's books!" Sandra R. Beloved Monster 

 Timeless Heart is excellent. The real surprise is that I never expected a time travel romance to have such humor and insight. Karyn Gerrard is amazing in the way she deals with a person from the past being astonished by all our modern conveniences, most of which we take for granted! The romance between Jerrod and Sandra is beautifully done. Timeless Heart is highly recommended~Sizzling Hot Books  Timeless Heart

The Baron and the Mistress by Karyn Gerrard wasn’t anything like I expected. I’ve read quite a few books by this author, and I love how she mixes humor with all the sexy hotness. I have to say this book was a bit different and had a twist I never saw coming. Rakes of Romance ~The Baron and the Mistress 

 5 STARS: WOW! My preconceived notions about this book were blown away. I went looking for a book with a different twist, and this was definitely it. BELOVED BEAST(The Ravenswood Chronicles, #2) by Karyn Gerrard is a mix of gothic horror, historical WWII romantic suspense, and historical WWII spy novel. Even though this is the second book in the series, it can easily be read as a stand-alone with all the information the author has seamlessly peppered throughout this book. I could not put this book down. The concept made it unique, and yet it also read as a traditional historical romantic suspense. ~review by Avonna Loves Genres ~Beloved Beast

 Ms. Gerrard can always put together a well-written and plausible plot, and her prose is wonderful, but it’s the chemistry between her characters that keeps me glued to her books. Highly recommended! Bookworm2Bookworm ~Bold Seduction 

It was awesome! I loved everything about it...the backstory, the connection between the characters, and the explicit sexcapades all culminated in a very entertaining story. Surprisingly, I got quite emotionally involved in this short tale. No doubt I will be reading more from this author. ~Amazon Reviewer ~The Governess and the Beast
