K M Daughters in the haunted manor

Hello and welcome to more of my  bewitching Halloween Blog. For today’s pleasure, Oliver and I are pleased to have the amazing K.M. Daughters in the haunted mansion. And who be knocking at my chamber door? Why, its none other than Pat and Kathie. Oliver, do be a gentlemanly vampire and let them in.

Sharon smiles and greets the sisters.  With a roguish wink, Oliver presents refreshments as the team tell us about CAPTURING KARMA.

Blurb from Capturing Karma
 Veterinarian Matty Connors’ visions lead her to homicide detective Brian Sullivanonce 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-whiteapproach to solving crimes doesn’t jibe with Matty’s spooky pronouncements or her reputation foralleged 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?
            “Hi,” he said, a single syllable that touched off a concussion of illogical pleasure inside her.
    “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 hislips.  “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.

Sharon Donovan said...

Hi Marie and Margaret. Thanks for dropping in for a visit. Please allow Oliver to mix you a special cocktail.

K.M. Daughters said...

Hello ladies! Sharon, thank you so much for the lovely party. We entirely missed it!!!!! So distressed! And Oliver served our favorite drinks, too. We're so sorry. Kathie was on a plane back home after spending time with me and attending my daughter's baby shower on Sunday. And I was texting my daughter every half hour while she spent time in the ER receiving IV fluids and anti-nausea medicine for yet another severe all-nighter of...well "morning" sickness. The poor sweetheart is 34 weeks pregnant and has been sick 7 days per just about each one of those weeks. Please forgive us. Thank you all for stopping by and visiting. Happy Halloween! P.S. On top of the morning sickness my daughter has an ear infection. Sure hope this little one - my first grandbaby - isn't an only child. :-)
