Karyn Gerrard Updates

MARCH 2024

Thirteen years since I first published with a digital publisher. I have been happily self-pubbing for five years, but I was approached by the owner of Dragonblade Publishing to submit a series. After a lot of thought, I said, 'Why not.' The proposal was accepted, so in 2025, look for The Duke's Bastards series, a spin-off of The Rakes of St. Regent's Park. The series will have three books, The Detective and the Baroness, The Chef and the Countess, The Doctor and the Duchess.

In November 2023, The Viscount of Shadows was released. Will there be more books in this series? I never say never. I am also contemplating getting my rights back from Kensington (for example, The Men of Wollstonecraft Hall), but that is further down the road.
Most of my self-pubbed books are in print now.

As for the novellas I mentioned last year? (see below) With these new contracts, I've pushed them further down my to-do list.

As always, life can throw curveballs at the best-laid plans, but I will do what I can and write when I feel like it. I can't stand deadlines, but here we go! Off to write! All the best! Cheers!  

MARCH 2023

Twelve years since I first published with a digital publisher, and after a roller coaster ride including traditional publishing and the whole agent thing, I am so glad I have gone full self-publish mode in 2019. My stress level has dropped, and I am enjoying writing again. I have learned to upload print books (thanks to Draft2Digital's print program), so I have released 4 books in the Rakes of St. Regent's Park Series in print (book 3 is too short to be in print). See all print books HERE.

Last year, The Duke of Pain and The Not So Perfect Duke were released. (Books 4 and 5 in The Rakes of St. Regent's Park Series) I am working on Book 6, The Viscount of Shadows. It may be released later this year, as I am already 45,000 words in.

Contemporary romance doesn't sell for me, so I cannot say when I will continue with the Wicked Men of Rockland series. Let's just say it's not on my plate for this year.
The historical American Western I mentioned last year has a title and cover, Drew's Gamble. I plan to work on that this year as well. It is a novella.
I also hope to get the 3 books in the Hornsby Brothers Series available for print. 

As always, life can throw curveballs at the best-laid plans, but I will do what I can and write when I feel like it while not imposing deadlines. Meanwhile, all the best! Cheers!  

MARCH 2022

Eleven years since I first published, and I am still doing this! His Wicked Celtic Kiss and Protecting the Duke was released last year, and I just published My Wicked Soul (It's Never Too Late for Love Anthology), and I am in the final editing stages for The Duke of Pain (The Rakes of St. Regent's Park #4) so that should be out in a month or so. 

What's next? Book 5 of The Rakes series, The Not So Perfect Duke, is almost completed! I also found a historical Western manuscript (Never published) that I will rework to fit my It's Never Too Late for Love Anthology series (older heroes and/or heroines). Also, the box set mentioned below is not happening, so if I continue with that story, it will be part of the Never Too Late for Love Anthology.

I also plan to continue with my Wicked Men of Rockland City contemporary series; book 3 was written long ago and needs massive reworking and editing. But there is no rush. 

I work at my own pace, impose no deadlines, and enjoy writing more than ever. I've also cut way back on social media. I would instead use any spare time I have for writing. Cheers!

APRIL 2021

Ten years since I was first published, wow. He's the Wicked Bad released; I will continue with the series soon, as His Wicked Celtic Kiss may be re-released later this year. My current main project is The Rakes of St. Regent's Park (historical) series. The first book is Protecting the Duke (all new) and will be on pre-order shortly. I hope to release it in June. I am also revising The Baron and the Mistress and Knight of Christmas for books 2 and 3 in the series. Already working on book 4. 

Also started another series, It's Never Too Late for Love; it will be an anthology series of short stories of heroes and/or heroines 40 and older. I put That Christmas Feeling as book 1. Book 2 will be released in due time; it's called My Wicked Soul. This anthology will have both contemporary and historical stories.

Also working on a short story (historical) for a boxed set, which will eventually be added to my anthology. The working title is The Scarred Duke
So, I am still active, but it is on my timeline whenever I feel like it. I am imposing no deadlines on myself. Keep checking this site for updates, as I no longer send a newsletter. Cheers!


Hard to believe another year has passed. I've re-released The Vicar's Frozen Heart (and revised it), so the Hornsby Brothers series is back under my control. I also released The Spinster and Mr. Glover (The Revised Edition). It's no longer a short story but a novella of 33,000 words. Check it out. Working on He's the Wicked Bad (Previously called The Wicked Bad) Major, with significant revisions, and I'm hoping to release it before the end of the year. Also working on revising Books 2 and 3 and started Book 4! (Books 3 and 4 are all new). Working at my own pace suits me far better at this stage of my life. Cheers!


It's been a wild year personally and professionally, and not much accomplished--at least professionally. I did have an all-new release in April, THE MARQUESS OF SECRETS (Book 3 Hornsby Brothers) 
My editor left Kensington Publishing, and with it, all my enthusiasm for pursuing traditional publishing in any way. I am off that roller coaster. (Buh-bye, agent) The reason is that with a severe illness spanning several months and now a move halfway across Canada, the rest of 2019 is a wash as far as writing. But once I am settled into my new home and fully recovered (almost there), I plan to return to writing at my leisure (no more deadlines, yay!) See this post HERE on what I have planned (fingers crossed) in 2020. Cheers!


The time has flown once again! What is up? Knight of Christmas was re-released in September, and the third and final book of The Men of Wollstonecraft Hall, Love with a Notorious Rake, will be released on Dec 4th.

I will be having my 4th (!!) Bookbub on Nov 28th, Scandal with a Sinful Scot (book #2), will be 99 cents.

So, self-pubbing. The Marquess of Secrets (Hornsby Brothers #3) will be released sometime in 2019, not this year, sorry. There has been much going on in real life. It is almost finished, hopefully in the first few months of 2019. The Wicked Men of Rockland City series (contemporary) is still on the back burner; I could also do many old rights reverted stories, but I am pacing myself. There is also a reworking of historicals I will be self-pubbing at some time in the future called The Rakes of Regent's Park series. The Baron and the Mistress will be added to this series. I plan to make book one perma-free (short novella). Again, I am still determining when this will all take place.

Traditional publishing? I am working on a historical romance series idea. The agent likes it, but whether it will go anywhere is another question. The romance market has atrophied as far as publishers go. Stay tuned! Have a safe and relaxing holiday season :)

JUNE 2018

Wow, where did the time go? Marriage with a Proper Stranger was released in February, and Scandal with a Sinful Scot was released this month (June 5). The third book will be published on December 4, 2018.

Thanks to a Bookbub ad for MWAPS, I hit #1 Amazon Historical author and #19 for the entire site for the book. Cool. Time to move on, however, and what I am working on next.

I plan to release through my own publishing arm, Knight of Christmas, and the third and final book in the Hornsby Series, The Marquess of Secrets, before the end of the year. Working on them now. Still trying to figure out what comes next concerning traditional publishing; stay tuned.

Beloved Beast is on sale for 99 cents for June. My Highlander Cover Model also got a new cover done by Cora Graphics, and I will be selling it soon.

As for The Wicked Men of Rockland, I will be self-pubbing at some point. I have renamed the series Wicked Men of Rockland City. Again, stay tuned!


It's been a while! I have been busy writing the three books contracted by Kensington Publishing, The Men of Wollstonecraft Hall. That is where most of my 2017 went. *poof*

So, there has been little going on since the last update. Though I finally finished revising and editing THE COPPER AND THE MADAM, it was re-released last week! Book 1 is FREE until Nov 30, 2017. 

The first book of my new historical series, Marriage with a Proper Stranger, will be released Feb 6, 2018. There was a cover, and...it was yucky. Still waiting on a new cover. 

As for KG Publishing, I am still trying to figure out what to do next, as I am still receiving rights reversal for books. I have quite a backlog.

I will be revamping The Wicked Men of Rockland next. I envision 4 books. Two were already released and need revising. Book 3 has been written, so only one book will be left to write. Frankly, I am exhausted. There has been a lot going on personally, so I might slow everything down for 2018. 

Have a good rest of the fall and a great upcoming holiday season. See you in 2018! 

MARCH 2017

Lots going on! I have a literary agent, Elaine Spencer, from The Knight Agency. 

Also, I was offered a three-contract deal from Kensington Publishing for a new historical series called The Men of Wollstonecraft Hall. Look for Book 1, Marriage with a Proper Stranger, Feb 6, 2018. All three books will be published in 2018 with their digital line, Lyrical Press.

Beloved Beast released Feb 28th. This is the last book in The Ravenswood Chronicles.
Love Across Time box set released Jan 10th.
My Highlander Cover Model is no longer in Kindle Unlimited. Look for it at other e-vendors. Check out MY BOOKS for links on releases. HERE

Got the rights back to The Wicked Bad. Now waiting on His Wicked Celtic Kiss. When I get it, this series (Wicked Men of Rockland) will be revamped, revised, and given to my agent (so cool to say that) to shop around.
The Copper and the Madam is being revised, and I hope to re-release it soon.
Lots on my plate!


 Hi, it's been a few months. The Governess and the Beast and My Highlander Cover Model have been re-issued. MHCM is in Kindle Unlimited, but I may take it out in early 2017. Check out MY BOOKS for links to these two re-releases. HERE Also That Christmas Feeling re-released and Beloved Monster from Kensington Publishing/Lyrical Press also released. Same link.

Coming up? I will be in a box set releasing January 10th of historicals and time travels called Love Across Time. Timeless Heart is included.

Got the rights back to Black Lust, Rock the Wolfe, Heart of Rock, and, on December 1, The Copper and the Madam. I hope to revise and get The Copper and the Madam back out in 2017. The others are on the back burner.

Also, I rec'd word I will get the rights back to The Wicked Bad. Good. I will continue my Wicked Men of Rockland series soon. I hope to get Book 2 back next spring. 

Lots on my plate! Stay tuned!

JUNE 2016

It's been a rough spring, dealing with a lot in real life. Book #2 of The Hornsby Brother series released The Vicar's Frozen Heart in March. It and book 1, BOLD SEDUCTION, are on sale for 99 cents until the end of June. Check out the post HERE.

I rec'd the right back to THE GOVERNESS AND THE BEAST May 1st. Just waiting for the formatting to be done (I have to learn how to do this myself), and I will be re-releasing it ASAP. A reminder: The audiobook is still under contract to Decadent Publishing; it is the older version.

Still working on revisions of MY HIGHLANDER COVER MODEL; it is taking longer than I thought, and it needed more work than I thought. Hope to re-release it sometime this summer. It will be put in Kindle Unlimited. 

THE BARON AND THE MISTRESS Right now, it is 99 cents. Grab it while you can!

BELOVED MONSTER had its cover reveal. Check it out HERE; it's up for pre-order. Releasing Sept 13, 2016. That's all for now!


Happy New Year! It's a little late. The Spinster and Mr. Glover (book 1 of the Blind Cupid series) was released on Dec 7, 2015; the short story is priced at 99 cents. Check it out at Amazon HERE.

Book #2 of the Hornsby Brothers series. The Vicar's Frozen Heart will be released on March 1st, 2016. Check it out at Amazon HERE.

I've dropped another publisher, Crimson Romance. Read more about HERE and the upcoming release in my Wicked Men of Rockland series, My Wicked Soul, coming fall of 2016. (self-pub)

Also working on a re-release for My Highlander Cover Model. An early summer release. (self-pub)

Timeless Heart will come out of KU in March and be released to all vendors. The Baron and the Mistress have also come out of KU and are priced at vendors for 1.99.

Asked for the rights back to The Governess and the Beast. It will probably be okayed for May. It will be a quick turnaround to get the story back out; there won't be many changes. Already ordered the cover. More to come. And that's all the news for now!

  OCTOBER 2015

And it's been more than a few months. Here's the news: Timeless Heart was re-released in June. It is doing so well in KU (Kindle Unlimited) that I decided to leave it there for another three months. Not only can you read it for free at KU, but it is also only 99 cents to buy. Check it out on Amazon HERE.

Meanwhile, Bold Seduction's release was disappointing. I should have changed the title when it was decided to make it a series. Too late now.
And yet The Vicar's Frozen Heart (book #2 Hornsby Brothers) is up for pre-order and selling. I can't figure this biz out for the life of me. Check it out HERE.

The Baron and the Mistress is in KU for three months, and I will probably take it back again when the 90 days are up. It is also available for a limited time at 99 cents. Check it out HERE.

In December, I will re-release The Blind Cupid as The Spinster and Mr. Glover. This short story has over 7000 words added. It will get a release from all vendors. Can't set the date until Decadent Publishing takes down The Blind Cupid. Coming soon! I have cover art.
Have a great rest of the fall!

JUNE 2015

Wow, it's been a while. Since February, I've had my first self-pubbed release; on April 7th, THE BARON AND THE MISTRESS released and did okay (meaning I made my investment back and a little extra). It is available on Amazon and other vendors.

is up for pre-order! It will be released on June 9th. More than 7500 words were added, re-edited, and revised. Since this is a re-release, It will be in the Kindle Select program for the first 90 days on Kindle Unlimited. After 90 days, I plan to opt out of KSP and release it to other vendors.

I am sitting on some news I will keep to myself until it's official. Hope I can announce it soon! It's a personal validation victory for me. I am not convinced it will mean I will sell more books, though.

If I disappear for chunks of time, a lot is happening in my personal life about Mr. Gerrard's health. It may impact my social presence and writing, so please bear with me.

I actually started writing Book 3 of my Wicked Men of Rockland series; not sure how far I will get because of the news above I can't announce and the personal stuff. But now I am picking away at it.

That's it. Cheers ~


A belated Happy New Year! I was on a hiatus for part of January due to personal health issues concerning my live-in hero.  Some more bumps in the road ahead, but it could have been so much worse. Check HERE and HERE.

Because of that, my first self-pubbed release, THE BARON AND THE MISTRESS, will be delayed. Apologies! Early spring now. Will keep you posted.

TIMELESS HEART AND TIMELESS LOVE are no longer available. I received the rights back from Evernight Publishing. I have already started revisions and editing for TIMELESS HEART and hope to self-pub it in late spring/early summer. I have no immediate plans for TIMELESS LOVE. 

HIS WICKED CELTIC KISS (Wicked Men of Rockland #2) and THE WICKED BAD (Wicked Men of Rockland #1) are on sale in February for 1,99 each, 50% off the list price, only at AMAZON. Check it HERE.

Also, I am going on a virtual blog tour! Feb 12-14 is a book blast for HIS WICKED CELTIC KISS  with Tasty Book Tours. A print copy of THE WICKED BAD is up for grabs! Check it HERE

That is all the news for now. Cheers!


Well, the unthinkable happened. I am going to try my hand at self-publishing. Read about my venture HERE. Articles say the golden age of self-pubbing is over, but I am not doing it for the money. I just want a little control over my stories for once.

My first venture? A historical novella called THE BARON AND THE MISTRESS. Check it out HERE. No firm release date as yet. But sometime in early 2015.

During December, THAT CHRISTMAS FEELING from Evernight Publishing is on sale at Amazon and All Romance for 99 Cents. Check out the book HERE.

My one and only release with Ellora's Cave, KNIGHT OF CHRISTMAS, is out soon, later in the month. Check out my one and only post about it HERE.

I heard back from Kensington about the release date for BOLD SEDUCTION is Sept 1, 2015. Wow. Working on edits already. It's hard to believe it's up on Amazon for pre-order, though there is no blurb or cover art yet.

I have lots on my plate, but working at my own pace. Everyone has a safe and relaxing holiday season!


A few developments. Wild Pitch (co-written with Gayl Taylor) was released with Decadent Publishing on Oct 3rd. (Formerly The Hero Sandwich)
This will be my final release with Decadent Publishing.

No word on Bold Seduction (historical) from Kensington/Lyrical. Will keep you posted.

from Ellora's Cave. Releasing Dec 19th. I have removed all references to EC and the upcoming book from my media sites. This will be my one and only release with Ellora's Cave.

HIS WICKED CELTIC KISS (#2 Wicked Men of Rockland) was released on the 20th From Crimson Romance. Look HERE for buy links for my recent releases.

Summer Heat Box set continues to sell well. You can get THE WICKED BAD (#1 Wicked Men of Rockland) in this 10-novel set
 Read more about it HERE. Snap it up. Limited time! 99 cents for 10 novels.

Thanks to my dealings with publishers, I am taking the rest of the fall to contemplate the unthinkable (for me) self-pubbing. More to come!
