Welcome to the 24 Karat Romance Blog Hop!!!!!!


Let’s talk romance and Brothers of Rock! For those who haven’t been following my bestselling series, now is the time! The first five books followed rock band, Chasing Cross. The first book in the series, All Access, as part of a boxed set, hit the NY Times Bestsellers List and the USA Today Bestsellers List in October 2013!

The next books are coming in 2014, and the release of A Voice to Love brings band Fallen Tuesday to life!

Check out the blurb…


A Voice to Love (Fallen Tuesday Book One) (A Brothers of Rock Novel)

The Brothers of Rock series continues with Fallen Tuesday!

Lead singer Luke Nolan’s sudden success is everything dreams are made of. Going from playing at a local dive bar to touring with mega band Chasing Cross, seemingly overnight, and ultimately saving the headliner’s tour, has the men of Fallen Tuesday absolutely loving the life on the road. In fact, Luke is loving it so much that he has used every excuse to not tell his bandmates about his medical condition that is worsening with each performance.

In a small town just outside Syracuse, New York, Amy Deleranne seeks solitude in the kitchen of Tommy Two’s, her uncle Tom’s restaurant that should have been hers by now. She understands his emotional attachment, but she has poured her life into its survival and has more at stake than anyone knows…

With Luke battling a skyrocketing career and the medically unknown and Amy terrified to look over her shoulder at all times, it is no wonder that sparks fly when they meet. However, can their hearts, and their careers, survive the secrets they’ve been keeping?

Fall Into #Romance *Giveaway H0P* – November 1-17th! HURRY and enter!

Posted on Updated on

Hey everyone! If you’re new here, then WELCOME! I’m honored to be part of the Fall into Romance Blog Hop running November 1-17th! The prizes are AMAZING… including a $50 Amazon giftcard, lots of books and swag from about 60 ‘hoppers’, and maybe even an extra prize from myself! (Details below!)

First, I want to thank Ann Marie Oakes for organizing this blog hop!

Now I want to talk about my two latest releases, both in romance, but in different sub genres. I LOVE romance so much because of the sub genres! We have contemporary, paranormal, western, new adult, and many more… but for me, my two bestselling series are in contemporary rockstar romance and western romance.

For those who haven’t read the Mail Order Romance series, why not check out the newest book in the series, Hope Found West? These are books that follow young women in the 1800’s as they make the decision to travel west in the hopes of finding marriage, family, and love. In fact, as of this writing, the first book in the series – West For Love – is STILL the #1 book in Kindle Western on Amazon!

Check out these reviews!

The story was really great and showed how hard life was in old West. This story also showed there is hope to find someone to really love you.

A wonderful story enjoyed it this book is a keeper. Looking forward to reading more of Karolyn James books. Awesome book

Good book, I have enjoyed this series. I would recommend this book to anyone that wants to sit down for a good read.

Check out Hope Found West and the Mail Order Romance series here – MAIL ORDER ROMANCE PAGE!


For those who wanted something more modern, then check out the Brothers of Rock series. The fifth book in the series just came out and finishes up the story of rock band Chasing Cross. These books follow the members of the band as they play shows, tour the country, write music, and fall in love. The first book in the series – All Access – is still available for only $0.99!

Check out these reviews!

What can I say Karolyn James has done it again… This is such a fantastic read if you haven’t read this series I encourage you to do so you will not be disappointed…

What can I say about this book is freakin’ fantastic. I love this series. These books get better and better the boys of Chasing Cross will make you laugh and cry but in the end Karolyn James has captured each and everyone of them in there own way…

Cover Reveal – Last Song (Chasing Cross Book Five) (A Brothers of Rock Novel)

Posted on

This is the last book in the Chasing Cross series… and it’s time to read about Rick. If you haven’t read the rest of the books yet, hurry and catch up! Last Song is coming October 2013.


Everything I have right now I owe to you…

Posted on

Everything I have right now I owe to you, the readers. I wake every morning and think about who has read my books the night before. I think about those who will read during the day. Each time I get an email, Tweet, Facebook message, or a review talking about how someone couldn’t sleep because they kept reading… that’s my dream come true.

When my books became published, it seemed I had a set path to follow. But thanks to some begging, careful writing, and dedicated readers like you all, things have grown. Brothers of Rock was supposed to be an experiment… now it’s going to be a ten book series following two bands. Rock Her Curves was supposed to be one book… it turned into two books with an extension for two more. Even my western romance books that had been collecting dust for a long time were given a chance at life. And as of this writing, the three books released under the Claire Charlins name are in the top 10 in Kindle western with West For Love being #1! Because of you.

I’m writing to confess a secret… I have another pen name. Chances are some of you have ‘met’ this person. Some of you may have loved the books or hated them, I’m not sure. Thanks to your dedication to me, I’m able to bring this pen name to an end, thus allowing me to write more books for you all. Now – *drum roll* – I have also been writing under the name… London Casey.

There, it’s in the open now.

Yes. Karolyn James is London Casey.

For those who don’t know, London Casey writes new adult romance. The first trilogy I wrote was called “The Boys of DownCrash.” It hit the coming-of-age and new adult charts for a while in the summer. The reviews have been great and the fans loved it. But then I realized something. I don’t want to cater to two different fan bases. I want one. One for Karolyn James. If you like Chasing Cross, you’ll love DownCrash. If you enjoy Brothers of Rock, then why not read The Boys of DownCrash? The lines between romance and new adult romance come and go, which is fine, because it’s about the story. And what this means is that YOU, the readers, get more books to read.

The best part is this…

I have books written under ALL THE NAMES!

What’s on tap for Karolyn James? I’ve got Rock Her Curves and the 5th book in the Chasing Cross Brothers of Rock series!

For London Casey, there’s a new trilogy written!!!! YES, I know, it’s exciting!  The trilogy follows a couple who are caught up in each other but fate keeps pushing and pulling them away. The trilogy is my personal favorite writing(s) of this year. I can’t wait to share it!

And finally, for Claire Charlins, there’s more western romance!

Now, to explain my plan for London Casey… since I’ve been promoting the name and new trilogy, both the London Casey name and my name will appear on the covers. But after this trilogy, the name will be no more. It will be Karolyn James. That’s it. The only other name will be Claire Charlins – just to ensure readers can differentiate the western romance from the rest of the romance novels.

So go check out the London Casey page and grab The Boys of DownCrash trilogy! 🙂

Chasing Cross… goodbye, maybe

Posted on Updated on

How fitting, it’s Friday the 13th. The bad luck day. The day horror movies will be playing in my house because those that live here love it. For me, I’m stuck in the world of Chasing Cross. I’m holding my tissues. I’m saying goodbye… in October, the fifth book in the Chasing Cross series is coming out. It’s Rick’s book, and for those who followed the series from All Access know that he is the one character that has the most drama in his life. I’ve felt for Rick the entire series and writing this book (Last Song) has been a roller coaster for me.

But I come with a potential surprise… something that’s been working in the background that involves Chasing Cross. I’m really excited and hoping I can make a really big and fun announcement before September closes out.

Oh, and if you’re feeling down like me, if you’re going to miss Chasing Cross… be ready. Rock Her Curves #3 is coming next week! It’s a brand new two book series featuring Lacey Caey and a sexy rockstar that goes by the name Sixx. You should remember Lacey Caey from the first series of Rock Her Curves.  🙂

Today’s Words: DISGUST, POUT, WAD

I can’t live in disgust, in this world, this void. I refuse to believe, to wait, to pout, to be. I walk, through the night, the sun and moon in a wad, shinning together, wanting to guide me home.

Monday update!

Hey everyone!  Another Monday is here. Busy week for me. Getting so much stuff together for September and into the fall/winter season. Not to mention getting ready to send two boys back to school! I’m really excited for September because Brothers of Rock will be on tour online with the biggest blog tour to date for me. AND Rock Her Curves #3 is coming out. AND I’ve added another western romance to my plate. The success has been amazing and the requests are flooding for MORE MORE MORE! So that’s what I’m doing… writing, formatting, preparing everything.


Thanks for all the support!



Breaking News! BURIED NOTES is available on Amazon!

Posted on Updated on

Just wanted to pass along the good news that the fourth book in the Chasing Cross books is out! BURIED NOTES (A Brothers of Rock Novel) features Chris, bassist for Chasing Cross!!!!

Don’t miss it!

I’ll post the official page soon once the book is live on the other sites.

Get BURIED NOTES today!!!!!


Finally exposing a secret to his band after years of hiding, Chasing Cross bassist, Chris, confesses that some years ago, during a wild night, he ended up marrying someone. It was supposed to be a no-big-deal kind of thing, with a stipulation… if one of them fell in love or wanted to get married to someone else, they would divorce.


Chris has been served divorce papers, and it should be easy to just sign them, but he can’t. His heart won’t allow it.


Becky loses her mother to breast cancer and realizes that life sometimes really is too short. She finds the ring she received from a sexy rockstar the night she secretly married him. The memory should have been fun, but after being pushed into a corner to stay married while that rockstar’s band took off, Becky can’t do it anymore.


She sends divorce papers and waits… and waits… and weeks after sending the papers, she wonders what’s taking so long…


In a journey that forces Chris to step back in time to find his future, he knows he needs to find Becky – his wife. He isn’t sure what he’ll find, but he knows he wants the truth.


Was it love back then? Or just a crazy night with a rockstar?
