An Update on My Alter Ego, Karly Stratford

Tags : 

Karly has been writing up a storm, putting out curvy girl romances all year!

Check out the latest installment.

Meet Victoria and Logan!

How many coincidences does it take to make it fate?

Logan and I are flirting buddies.
That’s. It.
Or so I keep telling myself.

I met Logan because he lives in the same small Alaskan town as one of my best friends. While I’m there, Logan and I decided to be flirting buddies. Two weeks of fun with no commitment. It’s kind of perfect. Only when I leave it feels like I left a part of my heart in Alaska.

Then my only single cousin tells me that he’s engaged and that I need a plus one for the wedding.

Thanks a lot, cuz.

It turns out that Logan will be in the next state over the same week as the festivities.(Coincidence? I’m not sure.) He offers to join me, and I say yes.

When Logan’s ex makes an unexpected appearance, suddenly Logan and I are fake dating so she leaves him alone and my family gets off my back.

I’ll spare you the details of how we ended up in the same hotel suite.

Just how many of these things should I ignore before I give into Fate and let myself fall for the guy?

Not Quite A Prince Release!

Tags : 

For those of you who don’t know, I write sweet and clean romance under the name Karly Stratford. Today I have a new release!

This is my first intentional swing at a romantic comedy. For the past few months I’ve been forcing the hubby to watch a bunch of old RomComs so I could get a good feel for them.

I quickly realized that there is more to writing humor than there is to showing it on a screen. So I got a few books about it and started doing some research.

This book took me a while to write, but it makes me laugh.

Hopefully it will tickle your funny bone too!

Mirror, mirror on the wall,

Will this man be

My downfall?

I have one last party to host at my aunt’s bed and breakfast before I go back to my day job.

Unfortunately, Fate has decided to twist the week into one of my television productions.

1-My rival, the Prince of Television, walks in.
2-His shorts leave his well-defined calf muscles horribly exposed.
3-Only one room in the place has reliable Wi-Fi.
4-He makes fun of the love triangle in my latest show.
5-I fight back with snide remarks about his train-wreck of a season finale.

Cue the laugh track.

What? No. Of course I’m not flirting with him.

He’s the enemy.

Tune in as Gwen and Royce star in their own romantic comedy. It could be cancelled after the pilot episode or be picked up for the entire season!

He’s Just a Guy

Tags : 

The third, and final, book of Karly Stratford’s Summer Romances is out!

This one takes place in Seattle. After researching all of the fun things to do in Seattle, I really want to go there! But only after things calm down. Am I right?

Allie just sent another roommate into wedded bliss, and her goal is to stay away from guys. She does not need a man to make her happy, thank you very much.

Max just broke up with the woman he thought he loved. He’s not in the market for a relationship.

Fate, however, has other plans for them both.

She doesn’t need a guy to save her

He doesn’t need a woman to be happy

Both are lying to themselves

He stopped breathing when she opened the door, and his brain refused to work.

Allie Dalton. His friend’s little sister, and the one girl he’d always wanted to go out with, but had never found the courage to ask.

She was staring at him. Was that surprise in her gaze, or irritation?

He should say something.

With her sister in a cast from her toes to her hip, Allie doesn’t expect anything but movies and take-out for the week.

Then Max Ashly—her secret crush from high school—knocks on the door.

Allie just sent yet another roommate off into wedded bliss, and isn’t in the mood for some super-handsome, well-dressed guy to sweep her off her feet.

But this was Max, and she’d always wondered what it would be like to hold his hand…

Can Max and Allie get over their personal issues and seize the day, or will they allow themselves to drift apart once again?

Find out today!


Allie walked with him to the front door. “Thanks for coming over, it was good to see you.”

Max plucked up his courage. “Same. You know, if you want to go see something, I can totally take you.”

She ducked her head. “Thanks, but I think I’ll be here most of the time, looking after Becky. You know how she is, if you leave her alone too long, she’ll do something stupid like try to go down the school stairs on a sled.”

Max laughed. “She broke her collar bone that time, right?”

“Yup. Got her out of a bunch of school work, which wasn’t exactly fair.”

“I remember.” Max smiled. He’d forgotten how funny Allie was, and he wasn’t ready to walk away from her. Hadn’t Virginia just been telling him he needed to find a fun girl? “I’m serious about the offer to go see the sights or whatever.” He reached into his pocket and drew out one of his cards. “The bottom number is my cell. Can I have your number, since Becky might not be the most reliable at the moment?”

“Sure.” She rattled off her number, and he saved it in his phone.

Max stopped in the open door. “It was good to see you.” He willed her to take him up on his offer, but instead she smiled and waved.

“I’ll see you later.”

“So, you’re going to call me?”

“We’ll see.” She smiled as she shut the door.

Max wondered how long he had to wait before it was socially acceptable to call her.
