Prospective Princess Book Tour + Author Interview + Giveaway! @KaryRader

Click on the banner for the full schedule.
Welcome to my post for the Prospective Princess book tour! I have a giveaway for a $20 gift card coming up. But, first, allow me to introduce the book:

Release date: September 23, 2014
Genre: New Adult Fantasy Romance

Giving up the beautiful Lady Brislyn is only the first step toward Commander Marchant saving her from Darkness—and then winning her heart.


Five years ago Lady Brislyn of Komissa fell in love. Five years ago her heart was broken, never to be mended. But when one careless act finds her abducted by marauders and forcibly betrothed to a seductive enemy prince, there’s only one man she can count on to free her: Her father’s brilliant—and devastatingly handsome—military commander. The very man who rejected her.

Five years ago, Commander Marchant rebuffed the fifteen-year-old daughter of his duke. Now she is a woman grown, a Gifted musician whose song captured his heart. Yet Brislyn is not so easily reclaimed. To save her from one royal suitor, he must make a show of engaging her to another. Then March will rescue the kidnapped lady or die in the perilous journey to reach her. If he can survive the storms, the pirates, and the princes, he will win back Brislyn’s heart.


Welcome to Imagine a World! I’m so glad you could be here :)
Thank you for having me!

What is the hardest part about writing for you?
The hardest part about writing for me is forcing my butt in the chair and staying focused to get the whole story down so that, not only I, but others can enjoy it too.

The easiest?
The easiest parts of writing are the characters and their stories. They are why I write. They talk. I listen and put their stories down on paper. It’s the best job in the world. I can’t imagine anything more fun or exciting. I get to go anywhere and everywhere all from the comfort of my own home, and I don’t have to pay baggage fees or wear makeup!

What do you do when you get writer’s block?
I don’t really get writer’s block. I get lazy writer syndrome. I never run out of ideas for stories, but I have a hard time disciplining myself to get the words down in book form.

Are there any authors in particular (living or dead) who inspire you?
You bet. I have many. I love Flannery O’Connor, Julia Quinn, Susan Elizabeth Phillips, and of course, the Apostle Paul. He was a pretty great writer too.

Do you have any upcoming books you’re working on? Can you tell us a little about it?
I have a new release that just came out this week. It’s a short Christmas Themed Romantic Comedy and it’s the first book in a series of five, most of them holiday themed. It’s tilted, Kissing Mr. Scrooge.

Here is the Keynote: Maddie Timms’s workaholic, type-A boss is forcing her to accompany him on a business trip where she’ll miss Christmas at home, but it might just be worth disappointing her family if she can convince the tall, dark, and sexy humbug to embrace the season…and her.

If you could go back in time (to any time at all), what time period would you go to and why?
Oh, I’ve always loved the fashion of the forties. The old school Hollywood glamour has always enchanted me. I wouldn’t mind taking a short trip there. But I’m happy with my modern day creature comforts.

Summer or winter?

Cat or dog?
Cat. I have one named Pricilla. We call her Priss.

Tea or coffee?
Coffee, black with no sugar

Book or movie?
Book, of course

Bad boy or boy next door?
How about the bad boy next door?

Thanks for coming!

Thank you for having me. The interview was fun! Hope you get a chance to read The Pirate Princess and The Prospective Princess. They are some of my most romantic stories._________________________________________________________________

About the Author:
Kary Rader is an award-winning author, stay-at-home mom, and part-time Twitter sage, because one shouldn’t have to use more than 140 characters to impart wisdom.

She lives with her husband, three kids, and one low-maintenance kitty cat in Dallas/Ft.Worth Metroplex.

Whether contemporary or fantasy, spicy or sweet, her stories always have true love, romance, and lots of humor.


  1. I like the premise of the story.

  2. I like that it's a second chance romance in a fantasy setting.

  3. That it is a NA Fantasy. Almost all NA books I see are modern day romances.

  4. I love anything to do with princes, princes, and other types of royalty...throw a little fantasy in with that, and I'm a happy girl!
