Indentured to Sarah’s father, gorgeous, blue-eyed Dominic must do “Miss Sarah’s” bidding even while the two begin to secretly burn with passion for each other. In an epic clash of wills, neither is prepared to give an inch. Then Dominic escapes, taking Sarah with him on a run for his life through the dangers of the Australian outback, and that clash of wills escalates into an explosion of heat as “Miss Sarah” and the dangerous, desperate convict find themselves falling in lust—and love.New York Times, USA Today and Publisher’s Weekly bestseller Karen Robards is the six-time winner of Affaire de Coeur’s Silver Pen Award for favorite romance author. “Ms. Robards has the marvelous talent to zero in on the heart of erotic fantasy.

My first book was a ten-page effort written at age five for my grandmother. Throughout grade school, high school and college I wrote for various school publications. When I was eighteen, my first professionally published piece—a humorous anecdote—appeared in Reader’s Digest. Still, it never occurred to me that I might become a professional writer. I aimed for a career as a lawyer and was actually in law school when I sold my first book. When that happened, the world lost a would-be lawyer and gained a writer. That book, which is still in print, is Island Flame, and it was published when I was twenty-four. Since then, I’ve written over forty books, which regularly appear on the New York Times, USA Today, and Publisher’s Weekly bestseller lists, among others. The mother of three sons, I read, I write, and I chauffeur children. That’s my life.
