  2. Ms. Kelly,

    I have collected all of the paperback books I could find in used bookstores. I have recently purchased a Kindle Fire and loaded many stories I have been unable to find in paperback from Amazon. Of all of your stories, I love Marrying the Marine. The relationship between your hero and heroine was wonderful, the dialogue brought tears to my eyes; I have read at least three times this year alone. Thank you for your perception and insight into human and familial relationships. I look forward to your future stories.

  3. Carla,
    I can’t tell how disappointed, and even angry I felt, at how you went from a beautiful clean book in the first of your series to a trash book in “enduring light”. It also could have been such a beautiful book but you took us into the private quarters of the bedroom of a married couple…giving us an eye view of their sex talk and sex touching. I was so upset that I had to put it away for a while so I didn’t send too harsh of a letter although thinking about it makes me upset even now. A revised addition should be in order without the roaming hands and bedroom talk. If you want to write for the LDS readers then keep it within LDS standards. Needless to say this reader will be avoiding your books for now on.


  4. Hi, Carla,

    We recently crossed paths on RRT’s chat area. I’m the author of the Yellowstone Series of Novels, my latest from Camel Press is Jackson Hole Journey. I saw on our chat a description of your book, My Loving Vigil Keeping, and ordered one right away. As a fellow author who writes about natural and man made disasters at times, I really look forward to what I can tell will be your thoughtful and interesting treatment of a natural/man disaster. It came in the mail today, nice cover, and I look forward to reading it soon!

  5. I have loved your writing since Beau Crusoe. I’m now in the middle of The Hesitant Heart. You are by far my favorite current author. You make me laugh and cry. I feel like I’m living in the past when I read your novels. I wish I could find some of your older works.

    Thank you so much for what you do so well. I hope you will continue to write until you are an OLD lady. I will always be available to read your books.

    • Susan, I’m already an old lady! 66. I have to laugh about Beau Crusoe. Some folks were scandalized by that one. I’ve been scolded. Sigh. Her Hesitant Heart is a personal favorite, because I used to work at Fort Laramie NHS as a ranger/historian. The place is real to me, and hopefully, to you. You might like The Double Cross, about a brand inspector in New Mexico in 1780 when it was a colony of Spain. His wife Paloma Vega is a treasure. I’m writing book two right now.

  6. My husband and I both really love your books. He accuses me of trying to memorize them since I read them so often. I’ll have to buy a new copy of Borrowed Light since I’ve managed to read the copy we have now until it’s falling apart.

  7. I have read several of your books and loved them. But I was so disappointed in the last one. I couldn’t finish it because of the graphic sex. I’m afraid I wont be reading anymore of your books. It is so hard to find a clean book and I thought I had found an author I could trust. It is too bad because your books are great reading.

    • Sorry. I write for Harlequin HIstorical, Cedar Fort, and Camel Press. I’ve been told even my Harlequins are quite mild, but I know I can’t please everyone , so I don’t try. Better luck to you with other writers.

  8. I loved your book “Safe Passage”. My father was born down in the Mexican colonies—Colonia Dublan, Chiuaua, Mexico. When he was 10 their family was driven out of Mexico when Pancho Villa & his men came through killing & burning.
    I loved reading about the Mormons down in those same colonies where my father
    actually lived as a child. I have read 5 or 6 of your books & have loved every one of them. Thank you so much for your efforts in writing. I plan to keep reading your novels. Linda

  9. I’ve read several of your books! can’t wait to read safe passage. I live in Colonia Juarez, Chihuahua. How did you hear about the colonies? Did you have relatives here at one time? You need to come down here and see the modern life we live. Our streets are even paved! I’m an arizona girl, married 30 years to a handsome colony rancher. Our ranch is just south of Hachita,NM. It was once Geronimos old stomping grounds. Maybe you could find some inspiration for your next novel there. The invitation stands. contact me. I’ll come get you at the border and be your host for the weekend. Thanks carla for making history of the west come alive again. Tamara B.

  10. Hello Ms Kelly. I’ve read only a few of your books so far and I’m hooked. The stories I’ve read all dealt with the Napoleonic War, plus “Miss Whittier Makes a List.” They’re all wonderful (the writing, the research, the characters, etc.), but Miss Whittier and Captain Sir Spark have stolen my heart away.
    I’m going to say something now that I’m sure you’ve heard from others … perhaps you should consider having them made into audiobooks. Of course, they’re your books and you will do what you will do. Mainly I just wanted to say thank you to you for all the enjoyment and pleasure they are bringing to me. I live in Kaysville (though not LDS). If I may be of any assistance to you in your important work please do not hesitate to call ((801) 309-0567). I am a sixty-year-old retired woman in the process of finding my way back into life. I don’t expect to hear from you. I mainly wanted you to know that I’m a picky reader and I find your books to be pure joy.

  11. Please help! I used to have a Regency Romance book by Carla Kelly but have lost in in a flood. I can’t remember the name of it. All I can remember is I really liked it and for some odd reason, can’t get it out of my mind that I simply must read it again!
    Anyway, all I can remember is towards the end the woman is in a coach or something and the guy gave her a present that was a dress.
    Please tell me the title of this one. Thanks much!
