Capturing Karma

Hey folks! I'm hosting another Goddess Fish virtual book tour and I'm excited to say we have the K.M. Daughters here today. Please give them a huge welcome!


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 fiancĂ©, 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?

Excerpt #1:
“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.

Morning all. My, my that man candy photo! Hope you enjoy our blurb and excerpt. Would love to answer any questions during the day. Do you enjoy reading romantic suspense? How about series novels?

Tory Richards said...

Hey, I'm thrilled to have you two here! What are the famous K.M. Daughters working on now?


K.M. Daughters said...

Hi Tory - we're about to contract on the 4th book in the Sullivan Boys series, entitled ALL'S FAIR IN LOVE AND LAW. Patrick Sullivan, new CPD Captain, wrangles with the multi-talented, Charlie Demarco, celebrated defense attorney, while the Garbage Man Murderer continues to evade capture. Our WIP is the fifth and last in the series. And the last Sullivan a girl. Thank you for hosting us, gracious hostess!

Loved the blurb and excerpt.

Hi Linda! Thank you for stopping by, and thank you for your kind words. Hope you enjoy the book, if you have the chance to pick up a copy. Have a great day!

Welcome K.M. Daughters...I'm a regular here on Debbie aka Tory's blog.

You're new-to-me authors but I did enjoy the blurb and excerpt from Capturing Karma. I'm an eclectic reader with romance-suspense very high on the list.

I also love series if each book is complete on it's own...I'm in the HEA camp and I will generally do a wall banger if I'm left hanging at the end. Other readers feel differently, of course. In a series I particularly enjoy an update on characters I've already met in another book.

My question would be at what level of heat are your books? And, just for the record, I'm way, way over 18;) ~Nancy

Hi Nancy - thank you for stopping by. Our books are categorized as "Spicy" by The Wild Rose Press, our publisher. Some scenes nudge into the rated "R" category, not overly explicit or erotic. Since you're - a few years :-) - over 18, we don't think you'd be offended. We hope you'll consider us when making your reading selections. All the best to you!
