Carina Bartsch was born in 1985 in Erlangen, Germany, in the Franconia region of Bavaria. Her love of writing came late, but intensely. After searching since childhood for something she would really enjoy doing, she finally wrote her first short story at age twenty. Instantly, she realized: this is it. Four years later, after she had won several writing competitions, Bartsch published her debut novel, Cherry Red Summer and the sequel Turquoise Green Winter, which made her the most successful German romance author.


Cherry Red Summer:
No girl ever forgets her first love... No one knows that better than Emely Winter. It’s been seven years since she last saw the man with the turquoise eyes, Elyas Schwarz—the embodiment of everything mothers warn their daughters about. Good-looking, charming, and with a hint of ar- rogance, Elyas is back in Emely’s life and driving her crazy. She hates him from the bottom of her heart, but, even so, she can’t deny her growing attraction.
Thinking it’s high time to put on the brakes, Emely turns her attention to Luca, the intriguing new man she’s only ever met online. With two men pulling her in different directions, Emely must decide which of them is showing her his true self. After all the work she’s done to learn to trust again, will Emely’s efforts be for nothing?
Turquoise Green Winter:
A week after Cherry Red Summer, Emely still can’t understand why both of her potential lovers, Elyas and Luca, suddenly broke off contact with her. Only when Emely decides to summon the courage to confront Elyas does she discover how hard she has fallen for him once again. But as autumn gives way to winter, Emely’s newfound bliss is shattered when she discovers a shocking lie that destroys her trust in Elyas. To flee their ruined relationship, Elyas makes plans to leave Emely, and Berlin, behind. As they prepare to part ways for good, Emely must decide if she can let Elyas go—even if it means being haunted forever by those turquoise-green eyes she’ll never see again.
Turquoise Green Winter is the emotional conclusion of Carina Bartsch’s captivating two-book romance.
