About the author:
As a child, Kathryn Knight kept her parents on a constant quest to find enough reading material to last her through each week. An early fondness for books about horses later gave way to a lasting preference for both love stories and ghost stories; as a writer, the paranormal romance genre is a perfect fit. Silver Lake, a RomCon Reader’s Crown Award Finalist, was Kathryn’s first published novel, followed six months later by Amazon bestseller Gull Harbor. She lives in New England with her husband, her sons, and a number of rescued animals. Please visit her at www.kathrynknightbooks.com or on Facebook at Kathryn Knight books.
What inspired you to write your book?
My life-long fascination with ghosts, along with my passion for steamy romance novels filled with page-turning conflict, inspired me to write Gull Harbor. I’ve always had a vivid imagination, and the entire manuscript of my first novel, Silver Lake, existed in my mind for years before I finally wrote it down. The setting of my second novel, Gull Harbor, is the beautiful and sometimes isolated “lower Cape” along the Cape Cod National Sea Shore.
Here is a short sample from the book:
She shook her head vigorously. “I can’t spend your money to do my job. That makes no sense.”
“It’s not about that, Claire. It’s about keeping you safe.” He closed the distance between them, setting off alarm bells in the back of her mind.
Squaring her shoulders, she took a deep breath. “I realize you’re trying to help me, and I appreciate that. But what gives you the right to worry about my safety?”
“I don’t need the right.” He stood over her, and she took a step backwards, bumping up against his desk. His words shouldn’t have sounded menacing, but for some reason, they did. She nodded weakly.
“I am going to keep you safe, Claire,” he said, his eyes flashing. He reached out and stroked her arm.
A shiver ran through her, and she gripped the edge of the desk for support. “Okay,” she breathed. Every nerve in her body was calling for him. She closed her eyes as his hands moved up to cradle her head.
His mouth seized hers, and her lips responded urgently. She lost herself in the kiss, her fingers weaving themselves around his neck and tangling in his hair. His hands moved to her waist, and she gasped as he hoisted her up on the desk.
