Books by Karen van der ZeeWriting as Karen van der Zee, Miss Footloose has written and published a lot of books, many of them set in exotic locations. You’ll find them on her website’s backlist.

If you want to know how good or bad they are, check out the ratings and reviews on Goodreads.

Want to buy some? You can find many of them second hand, but from those sales Miss Footloose won’t earn a penny and that’s not really fair, don’t you think? After all, she slaved over writing these books. So here are some titles available as e-books, and yes, she will earn a couple of pennies from those sales, so be nice and go for it!

Not only is Nick a sexy man who disturbs her hormonal chemistry, he is determined to buy the shabby hotel from her for reasons that make her very suspicious of his motives. Who is this man? Who was her father? And why are the evil Balinese spirits invading her humble hostelry?

Rand's RedemptionRand’s Redemption (Kenya, East Africa)

Warm, fun-loving Shanna Moore turned Rand’s life upside down. So much so that soon he was gruffly inviting her to share his home— if she’d like. Shanna knew she would, but did his invitation include sharing his bed?

An Inconvenient HusbandAn Inconvenient Husband (Malaysia)

It wasn’t that Nicky hadn’t loved her husband–quite the opposite. By leaving, Nicky had hoped to provoke some kind of reaction. Blake Chandler was the strong and silent type. He didn’t show much emotion behind those impassive gray eyes. Of course, Nicky’s plan had misfired–Blake had been only too happy to sign the divorce papers.

Now, four years later, in Malaysia, Nicky is abducted by her ex, and this time Blake is far from silent about his feelings.

Karen- I see in the picture with this post that you have “my story” right on top… does the green one say, “An Imperfect Bride”? Yep… that would be me!

Do you have a post in your archives that tells how you got started with this genre? I’ll bet that’s another interesting story!

I’m usually found reading history and technical manuals, but some of these sound like the perfect answer to all these snow days on our hands here now! Thanks for stoking the fires to keep us warm… 😉

Jonelle, yes, that’s “The Imperfect Bride,” set in the warm, sunny Caribbean, sigh… I’m looking for warmer climes and hope to be on a plane tomorrow and escape this snowy winterfest. We’ve dug out the car, our side road has been plow, so, fingers crossed. As to the story of how I started writing romances, no, I haven’t documented that tale. Maybe I’ll do that some time. There is a bit more information about my writing if you click on ‘biographhy’ on my author’s website karenvanderzee.com
