Knight in a White Stetson, The Virgin Beauty, and Renegade with a Badge were written by one Claire King for the Intimate Moments line. They’re awesome, and as nearly as I can tell, she’s dropped off the face of the earth. I’d love to know if she’s writing under another name, or joined a nunnery, or what!
Well, Knight in a White Stetson and Renegade with a Badge are both available on Kindle, with “White Stetson” as part of Harlequin’s new “Treasury” collection – so these must be some pretty freaking awesome books. One Amazon review from 1999 even references the reviewer being a neighbor of King’s in Idaho, though I don’t recommend we try to track her down because that would be really creepy.
There is another author named Claire King who writes in the UK, but I don’t think it’s the same one. According to this interview from The Romance Reader, King the romance author does, or did, live on a working cattle ranch, so it sounds even from this basic Google-fu that I’m going to have to read these books. But alas, I haven’t found anything else. Anyone have any ideas if Ms. King is still writing, perhaps under a new name?
And Ms. King, if you’re reading this, you have fans, even 10+ years after your book was released. Well done!
