More About the Author

Evelyn Rogers's first job was selling women's underwear in a downtown Houston department store.  She's since hawked candy at Sears, worked the switchboard at a commercial laundry, toiled as a newpaper reporter, planned programs at an Air Force service club, taught English and was a librarian, the last two for 25 years in middle schools.
Each had its rewards and challenges, but no more so than her final chosen profession:  writer.  The award-winning author of 31 books and 8 novellas, she found great satisfaction not only in her craft but also in meeting readers across the U.S.
She and her husband live in San Antonio, frequently visited,  energized, and, yes, exhausted by their five grandsons.  But she still misses those up-close-and-personal visits with her readers.

Makenna Lindsay had thought herself in love. Due to be wed soon, she gave in early and went to bed with the man, only to be dumped. Makenna's mother had recently passed away, leaving her alone in the world with no relatives for help. She found a deed to a small house on Carnal Cove, located on the isolated Isle of Wight. It was there she fled to lick her wounds in peace.
Makenna expected to remain secluded. She hired an older couple to do housework and maintenance. She wanted only to be alone with the beach and her music. Instead she was tempted by a widowed neighbor, Captain Nicholas Saintjohn. Against her better judgement, Makenna agreed to tudor his young son, Jonathan, in art and music. Even more, a ghost interrupted her solitude. At night she sometimes hear the sobbing of a child. Often the misty form of a young woman walking on the beach appeared. Yet no one else could see or hear the ghost. Worse, the ghost was NOT exactly friendly or harmless!
***** W-O-W! Gothic Lovers, do NOT miss this one! Author Evelyn Rogers has proven herself to be The QUEEN of Gothic Romance! This is an incredible tale that I found myself unable to put down. It has been so long since an author has written a gothic style book like the ones I fondly recall reading by Victoria Holt! I simply cannot express how wonderful this story is. Do not take a chance on missing this title, pre-order a copy if you read this before the publishing date. AWESOME! *****

MyShelf.com Book Reviewer 1 Dec. 2002
By Suzie Housley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Fate has a way of bringing two lost souls together to be joined as one . . .
Makenna Lindsey flees London to find a place where she can rebuild her shattered life and mend a heart that has been cruelly broken. Her travels lead her to the mysterious Isle of Wight. There, she finds comfort in nightly strolls along a windy stretch of beach known as Carnal Cove. Its hypnotic voice seems to call out to her, warning her of some unknown evil force. During one of these moonlight expeditions, she meets up with Captain Nicholas Saintjohn, the owner of a massive home that dominates the cliff tops overlooking the cove. Nicholas makes no secret that her presence is not welcome and he tries to discourage her from making future visits. Makenna sees intensity burned into the depths of Nicholas' eyes and the torment that he tries so hard to hide is evident by his actions. She is convinced that she will be the one able to unleash the pain that plagues him. But by doing so, will she be putting her life in jeopardy?
Things are not always as they seem . .
Captain Nicholas Saintjohn finds himself enchanted by the newcomer, Makenna Lindsey. He is unable to resist her beauty and artistic ability, which she so effortlessly displays. For her own protection, he tries to convince her to leave behind the Isle of Wight and all the hidden secrets it holds. Will he be able to convince her of the dangers that lurk in the shadows?
Through Evelyn Rogers' mesmerizing words, the reader is able to become one with THE GHOST OF CARNAL COVE. Few authors bring a story alive as vibrantly as Evelyn Rogers. All of her stories are masterfully crafted, but her Gothic romances always hold a unique quality that other authors are unable to capture. Her marvelous talent as a writer puts her in a category by herself. To say she has a true gift for storytelling is an understatement.

Lovers Are Haunted By the Ghosts of Their Pasts 5 Jun. 2005
By Dakota - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
THE GHOST OF CARNAL COVE by Evelyn Rogers is a gothic love story between a brooding sea captain with a past and a not-so-innocent woman literally haunted by a ghost. I liked the moody atmosphere in this novel, which well uses a stormy, isolated beach on a small island as its setting. Nicholas is a blunt hero who knows what he wants, while the heroine, Makenna, is refreshingly forward herself. The ghost is as much a character in this novel as the hero and heroine, though it is a malevolent presence intent upon doing harm.

I read THE GHOST OF CARNAL COVE in one afternoon. The writing is clean and straightforward, and the story flows well. There wasn't as much action as I'd like - or conflict between the hero and heroine - since the story more revolved around Makenna's past and the ghost. It's an entertaining book, though I can't say I loved it. There weren't any scenes that stuck out as memorable (however, I thought the dog was a nice addition). Still, GHOST was a good read. Pleasant. Like eating apple pie, not too sweet, but not too fancy, either.

FYI: Here's a couple other ghostly romances to read ... BEAUDRY'S GHOST by Carolan Ivey (Civil War), GENTLE FROM THE NIGHT by Meagan McKinney (spooky Gothic), STARDUST OF YESTERDAY by Lynn Kurland (a ghostly knight), and A PHANTOM AFFAIR by JoAnn Ferguson (sweet ghost romance).

fun Gothic and paranormal romance 19 Dec. 2002
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
With the death of her mother, Makenna Lindsay is vulnerable, as she feels alone in the world though she is engaged. Still Makenna believes she loves her fiancé and they make love prior to their marriage. To her shock, the rat dumps her.
Among her mother's possessions, Makenna finds the deed to a small house on Carnal Cove on the Isle of Wight. Needing time to heal from the two blows she just received, Makenna decides the isolated isle is the ideal spot to recuperate. Her widow neighbor Captain Nicholas Saintjohn disrupts her serenity when he persuades a reluctant Makenna to tutor his son in the fine arts. Even more disturbing, a not so friendly ghost appears and Makenna hears the sound of a weeping child while she falls in love with her neighbor.
Gothic and paranormal romance readers will enjoy THE GHOST OF CARNAL COVE. The story line combines elements from both sub-genres as the isolated house and the brooding captain with an innocent woman provide Gothic elements while the ghost represents the paranormal. Though the plot takes a bit long to decide on which path serves as the prime theme, Makenna turns the tale into a fine novel as she struggles with otherworldly essences and a grim neighbor who has her heart.
