Spotlight Sunday - Kari March

Today the spotlight is on author Kari March! Kari is the author of the Always series. I highly recommend both of these books. They were both great reads!! Read on for info on the books, the spotlight interview and a giveaway! 

Blake Bentley had a rough upbringing, never fully believing he was good enough for anything or anyone. After being left with a broken heart by his only girlfriend, Blake swore off relationships for good and turned to the only two things that made him feel sufficient - sex and firefighting. 

Tessa Collins was brought up in the traditional 'perfect' family - loving parents, great sister, and amazing friends. After falling in love with Jared, her life was perfect - until he betrayed her. She has no idea that his betrayal could end up costing her more than just a shattered heart.

Blake and Tessa have been friends since high school. Never wanting to admit their attraction for each other, the two always remained close friends. Now, three years later, Blake and Tessa find themselves being pulled together by a force much greater than friendship.

Blake and Tessa have promised to be friends forever, but as fate pulls them together, they embark on a roller coaster ride of a lifetime. Will his self doubt and her insecurities keep them apart? Or will they be able to promise each other always?  



That was the only word Cam Greer, the son of a wealthy media mogul, had ever associated with women. When he met Amber Murphy his senior year in high school, he felt like, for once, this girl loved him for him. When she pursued her dreams and left Cam behind, Amber not only crushed Cam's heart, she destroyed his future as well. He was left to start his life over, thinking the only woman that would ever truly love him was gone.

Cara Pratt has finally got her life on track. Ten years after watching her father literally walk out of her life, Cara has finally found happiness with a new stepfather and her high school boyfriend, Lance. Everything is going according to her plan, until a pregnancy test comes back positive. Once again, she finds herself watching the man she loves walk out of her life, taking her future along with him.

When Cam and Cara spot each other across the bar at Maggie’s Place four years later, neither of them are interested in starting a relationship. They're both a little unsure and completely untrusting. They try to fight the intense immediate attraction, realizing right off, the seriousness of their chemistry, but as hard as they try, they can't.

As fate pulls them together, will their mistrust push them apart? As the smoldering embers from their pasts come blazing to the surface, fears are uncovered that neither of them are ready to face.

Stephanie: Do you have any interesting writing quirks?

Kari: Gummy Bears!! I have to have gummy bears or Brookside Chocolate when I write! I also love listening to playlist. 

What is the hardest part of writing?

Kari: Finding time to do it! With two young children and three other jobs, I have a hard time carving out time to sit and write. I spend lots of late nights on my novels! 

If Promise Me Always was made into a movie, who would play Blake and Tessa? 

Kari: Blake would for sure have to be Daniel Conn or Jesse Metcalfe. They are a bit older than Blake but they are who I envisioned when writing the story. Tessa would have to be Shelly Henning. She is perfect!

If you had a theme song, what would it be?

Kari: Ummm, I do have a theme song! Is that not normal? Kiss My Country A$$ by Blake Shelton is by far my theme song! I FLOVE IT!

Stephanie:  If you had a superpower, what would it be?

Kari: Superpower would have to be Invisibility! I would love to be able to spy on people without them knowing.

I’m a wife, mother of 2 amazing kiddos, photographer and owner at K23 Photography & Design, graphic designer and cover designer at K23 Designs, as well as an avid reader and blogger at A Book Whores Obsession! I have been married since 2004 to the most amazing man ever and together we have two amazing children.

I was born in Aurora, CO and still reside their today with my amazing family. I couldn’t imagine living anywhere else in the world. I have become accustom to bi-polar weather living here and I absolutely love getting all four seasons (although winters could be a bit shorter.)

I have a small obsession with Starbucks and gummy bears! They make the perfect writing snack! Wine helps a lot too especially with the late night writing sessions. I love the summer and everything that goes along with it, camping, swimming, boating, hiking, etc. I love to travel and Disneyland is one of my family’s favorite places to visit together. I have a dream of visiting so many places in the world such as Italy, Greece, Australia, Fiji, Bora Bora and New Zealand (just to name a few.)

I have met so many amazing people in this journey so far and I cannot wait to see what the future holds. xoxo <3 Kari
