Capturing Karma by K.M. Daughters & Giveaway!


Capturing Karma by K.M. Daughters

Veterinarian Matty Connors’ visions lead her to homicide detective Brian Sullivan once again despite her resolve to remain anonymous the past four years. Her official work with the police in California resulted in the brutal murder of her fiancé, and since, a recurrent nightmare she barely survives. Brian, the reputed ladies man of the Sullivan family, has yet to give his heart to a woman until Matty lays claim to it. His black-and-white approach to solving crimes doesn’t jibe with Matty’s spooky pronouncements or her reputation for alleged infallibility. A wild goose chase searching for a murder weapon casts doubt on Matty’s “truths” and threatens their smoldering romance. Is Brian her nightmare slayer and ultimate truth? When the puzzle pieces fall in place for Brian, will it be too late to save Matty?

Interview

1). What do you do when your not writing? Do you have any special hobbies?

Monday through Friday we work day jobs. Pat founded and heads a group of corporate relocation benefits (related) companies and Kathie runs one of those companies. Our hobbies are reading, traveling and hiking, or just plain walking. Kathie crochets and Pat knits.

2). If your series, "The Sullivan Boys", were made into a movie who would you like to see as cast members?

Oh my, the possibilities! Maybe Dermot Mulroney (Danny), Eric Dane (Brian), Ryan Reynolds (Joe), Damien Lewis (Patrick) and Amy Adams (Kay).

3). Is there a certain time of day or week that you do your best writing?

Early mornings are set aside for writing. Kathie typically writes during the traditional work week and Pat likes Saturdays best.

4).Will Capturing Karma be the end of the Sullivan Boys or can we expect more from this awesome series?

We just contracted Book 4 in the series to The Wild Rose Press, entitled ALL’S FAIR IN LOVE AND LAW. Patrick Sullivan, the youngest Sullivan Boy and new CPD Captain tangles with the celebrated defense attorney, Charlie Demarco, in this suspense novel. Book 5 is our current work in progress, and this will conclude the series. Maybe we’ll drag our feet in writing it. We can’t stand to say goodbye to these people. :-)


5). Can you give us the scoop on Marty and her passion for honey roasted cashew nuts?

LOL! Marty, Kathie’s beloved Boston Terrier will do anything for honey roasted cashew nuts. We have calendars on our desks to prove it. While Kathie shakes the can of nuts, Marty obediently poses on the bed, “dressed” month appropriate. As I write I’m gazing at Marty’s January “pin-up” girl pose. She’s wearing head encompassing, bespangled glasses, “2010”, subtitle Happy New Year!!!


Excerpt from Capturing Karma




“Hi, Brian,” she responded, tamping down the temptation to hug him hello. “How’s the new baby doing?”

“Great, thanks. How’s that bump on your head?”

Matilda touched an edge of one of the butterfly strips over her eyebrow. “Turning every color of the rainbow, but it’s fine.”

He swiveled his head toward the throaty bark of the wolfhound in the corner of the room, then scanned the other occupants in the lounge: primate, feline, porcine, wolfish and human. “Steve told me you’re a great vet. Looks like you’re pretty swamped here.”

“Shamus and I split the patient load,” she said.

“And Shamus is?”

“My brother. He came for me at the hospital yesterday?”

Brian’s eyes bored into her, a sexy smile twitched the corner of his lips. “Good.”

“And ‘good’ means?”

“The big guy isn’t competition. That’s good.”

“Ah. So we’re clear. What competition would that be?”

The sexy smile twitched again. “For but a smile from sweet Matty,” he lilted in an Irish brogue.

Squelching an impulse to grin, she molded her face serious and parroted a brogue, “Ah but woe to the knave who plies smiles with an untrue heart.”

She grinned now. “What can I do for you, Brian? Did you get an estimate to repair your car?”

“It’s about that letter you brought me. It’s related to a case. We need your help.”

Of course. “I gave you the letter. You know as much as I do.” Her heart hammered, nothing to do with the pulse acceleration from earlier flirtation. I can’t go further with this case. No matter what, I have to stay anonymous.
