A look at Kate Pearce & 'Soul Sucker' ( @Kate4Queen @GoddessFish #WW #SO )

Hi all! Grab a cup of tea – or whatever it is you like to drink – have a seat and give the following a read. :) Today we have Kate Pearce visiting and giving us a look into her story Soul Sucker.
* About our guest, Kate Pearce ~
* Award winning author, Kate Pearce was born into a large family of girls in England, and spent much of her childhood living very happily in a dream world. Despite being told that she really needed to 'get with the program', she graduated from the University College of Wales with an honors degree in history.
* A move to the USA finally allowed her to fulfill her dreams and sit down and write her first romance novel. Kate is published by Signet Eclipse, Kensington Aphrodisia, Ellora's Cave, Carina Press, Cleis Press and Virgin Black Lace/Cheek.

* Supernatural Branch of Law Enforcement empath Ella Walsh sucks memories from people's heads. The job fills her mind with others' nightmares and leaves her with little time for love, but if she doesn't pair off with a mate of the government's choosing soon, the psychic blowback will destroy her powers and her sanity.
* The last time shapeshifting SBLE superstar Vadim Morosov worked with an empath, he got her killed and himself assigned to a desk. He worries about taking on another partner, but helping Ella track down an empath killer might be his only chance to save his career.
* Naturally, the government decides to throw them together.
* They resist at first, but they can't deny the simmering heat between them. As the killer's strikes grow closer to home, their bond gets tighter. And when the murderer finally traps Ella, her developing link with Vadim might be the only thing that can save her.

~ Excerpt ~
* “I think the question you should be asking yourself, Ms. Walsh, is why you feel so threatened by me.”
* She screeched to a halt again. “Threatened, by you?”
* “Yes. I think you’ve got used to getting your own way in that office, and you don’t like anyone else coming in and questioning anything you say.”
* “And I think you’re talking out of your ass.”
* “I don’t like incompetence, Ms. Walsh, and I don’t like working with empaths on the brink of a break- down. I’ll work with you because I have no choice, but I’ll be questioning everything that comes out of your mouth, double and triple checking it and, if necessary, taking my concerns to the very top to make sure I’m heard so I don’t get left holding the can when everything blows up.”
* She stared into his eyes and for the first time in her life seriously contemplated drawing her weapon and shooting a fellow professional. But he’d probably like it if she did that, and she still had no way of knowing if he could actually be killed.
* Instead, she gave him her best professional smile. “I’m glad you shared your concerns with me, Morosov. I appreciate your input and will consider each and every one of your points very carefully.”

Kate Pearce said...

Thanks for having me!
Anas, the first novel I wrote was about Dark Ages Britain, I loved it but no one wanted to publish it!

Lyra, no these two just appeared in my head just as they are! I usually find that's the case. :)

Ami said...

Dark Ages Britain sounds like a historical, was it?


Catherine Lee said...

SO...Is Dark Ages Britain tucked away in a desk or under a bed somewhere? Will you ever try to revamp it and try again with it?

Looking forward to this one, as I always am with your books.

Kate Pearce said...

Dark Ages Britain is tucked under my bed, but you never know, I might drag it out again and self publish it one day!
And yes, I'm first and foremost a historical writer. :)
