    About "Kate Walker"

        I was born in Nottinghamshire, England, but I didn t live there for very long The family moved to West Yorkshire when I was just eighteen months old and so I have always regarded Yorkshire as my home I grew up there as the middle child in a family of five all girls in a home where books were vitally important and I read anything I could get my hands on.Even before I could write I was making up stories My mother tells the story of me recounting the tale of the Three Little Raindrops Drippy, Droppy and Droopy to my two younger sisters when I was four I can t remember a time when I wasn t scribbling away at something, and I wrote my first book when I was eleven, an adventure story, most of it in secret in lessons at school particularly maths lessons, which I hated.But everyone, particularly teachers and my parents, told me that I would never make a living as a writer, and I should work towards a secure career So I decided instead that if I couldn t write books, I could at least work with them and so I settled for becoming a librarian On leaving school, I went to the University College of Wales Aberystwyth where I studied English and Librarianship for my degree.More importantly, university was also where I met my husband who was also studying English there We married and moved back north, eventually settling in Lincolnshire Here I worked as a children s librarian until I left work when my son was born.After three years of being a full time housewife and mother, I was ready for a new challenge, but needed something I could do at home, and so I turned to my old love of writing My first attempts at novels were written on the kitchen table, often late into the night when my son was asleep or during a few snatched hours when he was out at nursery school.The first two novels sent off to Harlequin Mills Boon were rejected, but the third attempt was successful I can still remember the moment that a letter arrived instead of the rejection slip I had been dreading I think I must have read it over and over at least a hundred times before the reality of what it said sank in, and for days I kept checking it just to make sure I wasn t dreaming In 1984, THE CHALK LINE was published just in time to be one of my best Christmas presents ever.Fitting in hobbies around working and being a wife and mother can be difficult, but I always find time to read I love all sorts of fiction, especially Romance, obviously I also enjoy historical novels, detective fiction and long, absorbing biographies about fascinating people and I can spend hours in bookshops just browsing I enjoy knitting and embroidery, but I rarely get time to do either now that I m a full time writer I also love looking round antique fairs or junk shops, hoping to add to my collection of Victorian embroidery During my working hours my four cats, all adopted from the RSPCA, usually keep me company in my study, though they have to be dissuaded from sitting on the piles of papers that they are convinced are there just for them.I love to travel and visit new places, especially places with an interesting history, and I always enjoy visiting old castles or stately homes and imagining how the people who used to live there spent their days.I m often asked if I m a romantic sort of person because I specialise in writing Romances Well, if being romantic means caring about other people enough to make that extra special effort, then yes, I am Romance is about making the important people in your life feel valued and letting them know that you care But I also write about relationships and the difficulties people sometimes have in understanding each other, or expressing affection, or overcoming problems.Sometimes when the right words won t come, or an idea hasn t worked out as I d thought, I wonder why I don t have some regular nine to five job, but when the story s flowing and the characters come alive, I really can t imagine a

    1. The hero Carlos and the heroine Martha are both running away something - Martha from her wedding after discovering her fiancé cheating, and Carlos from the shock and hurt of finding out the truth of his parentage. They meet when Carlos finds Martha out walking in the rain, still in all her wedding finery, and stops to help her. There is an immediate spark between them, which neither of them truly understands, but each needing comfort they succumb to the desire between them. However, afterwards [...]


    2. Another story with such an OTT plot that can only be believed in the stories published by Mills and Boon…but of course it works and one of the reasons for it is that it is written by the most incredible writer, Kate Walker, whose books I devour.The Devil and Miss Jones begins with a really funny scene…picture this….a bride, fully dressed for the ceremony, discovers her groom in bed with the bridesmaidg and saying really BAD things…and this just an hour before everything is suppose to hap [...]


    3. Reviewed by Desere :Imagine driving around trying to escape a life of demons and suddenly out pops a bride in full wedding attire! Whoa right ! That is the opening scene of the brilliant read from Kate Walker. And you know when a book has such a awesome opening scene your definitely in for a fantastic book all the way.And what a book this was indeed. The author took me on a journey of love,self discovery,passion and romance. I loved how the author created such a almost magical world for the char [...]


    4. As always with this author the book contains too much inner dialogue, metaphors etc and not enough real dialogue. Also the heroine never tells the hero she loves him. What kind of romance is this?


    5. Oh Kate, when Diego was driving his motorbike in the first few paragraphs I had hope for the book, but honestly, that hope started to diminsh quite rapidly and my suspension of disbelief started to corrode quite quickly afterwards.Yes, I should have guessed from the "powerful motorbike" without any qualifications, but let me give you a few pointers.Paniers and top boxes on motorbikes are essential to carry anything, unless you're carrying stuff in a backpack, now seeing as she was able to snuggl [...]


    6. Kate Walker continues to affirm her standing as one of category romance’s most talented stars with her sixtieth novel for Harlequin Presents: The Devil and Miss Jones. Martha Jones has spent months planning her dream wedding. Having spared no expense to make all of her dreams a reality, Martha had been looking forward to walking down the aisle towards her Prince Charming and spending the rest of her life living happily ever after. However, Martha’s hopes and dreams were dashed by devastating [...]


    7. Originally posted at: longandshortreviewsspAny woman would be tempted by a Diablo on a motorcycle ready to take her away from her sad past and into an exciting new future. Miss Jones is no exception; she was ready to go with anyone willing to get her away from the drama that was her life so far. Luckily for her, Diablo is was the first passerby willing to take a chance on the runaway bride.Carlos Ortega (Diablo) was the Latin flair that Miss Marta Jones needed. Diablo was a character I was immed [...]


    8. Take one virginal bride and one dark mysterious leather clad stranger at a cross roads in both their lives and you have magic. This is a good old fashioned romance of the nicest kind. Perhaps a little lightweight but with an endearing heroine and a suitably gorgeous hero it works rather well. Martha Jones comes across as basically a very nice girl who has devoted her recent years to nursing her dying mother. Fate rewards her with a lottery win but unfortunately it also brings vultures, at least [...]


    9. Martha meets Carlos on the side of the road, in her wedding dress. He stops his motorcycle and after some adjustments they make their way to a hotel. Where she tells him, she was going to marry Gavin but he was screwing her maid of honor, so she ran out.Carlos is infatuated with Martha instantly and when they are in the hotel he makes love with her and then walks out. Four months later, Carlos lands on his grandfathers land via helicopter and finds Martha there.Background info? Carlos isn't actu [...]


    10. I don't know, but I seem to have missed much in this story. Miss Martha Jones runs out on her cheating bridegroom moments before her wedding and runs off with Carlos 'Diablo' Ortega. Her one night stand ends with him walking out with the statement virgins are clingy and leaves her alone, and pregnant.Of course, she had snooped and found out who he really was so was able to contact his grandfather, who tracked him down and brought him home. Martha tells Carlos she is pregnant, he wants to marry, [...]


    11. This was a very enjoyable story. Not the most believable, but then even the most believable are not all that believable, so why sacrifice intensity? From the deserted, rain-soaked Northern country road where a bedraggled bride cries for a lift away from her failed life, to the glorious Argentinian horse ranch where the rejected hero has to choose what he really values in life, this novel brings a vividness of experience which outweighs the improbably contrived plot. Martha and Carlos feel for ea [...]


    12. If I had to use one word to describe this story, it would be: bland. The pacing is extremely slow in the beginning, but in the end all is resolved with lightning speed. It just doesn't work.Both Martha and Carlos remain cardboard characters. It definitely would have helped, had I been able to read from Carlos' POV as well, but the moments spend in his head were kept at a minimum.Kate Walker is a competetent writer, but as far as this book is concerned, IMHO she just had a bad day at the office.


    13. I thought the story was cute. Yes a bit unbelievable but that is fantasy with romance. It could have been a five but the jump to heroine being at his grandfather was too big of leap. So she seemed stalkerish to me


    14. Okay, five down, one last entry to go. I’m so glad to be almost finished with this year. I think I’m pretty well romanced out for a while. This has been a nice vacation from my usual reading diet, but I find myself craving a nice bloody murder.



    15. A book of two parts for me - really enjoyed the beginning the runaway bride and mysterious biker - but the second half went beyond even my suspension of disbelief levels.



    16. Not worth $3.50. Liked the premise enough to buy the ebook, but the story didn't deliver. Too much inner dialogue, and not enough actual dialogue.
