SILVER LAKE is an #Amazon Monthly Deal! #Kindledeals #KU

This has been a very exciting month for me, with HAUNTED SOULS releasing on June 1st…but there was fantastic news for one of my older titles as well:  SILVER LAKE was chosen as one of Amazon’s June Monthly Deals!  Amazon’s traditional publishing house acquired the electronic rights to my debut novel last summer for their Encore imprint, and this is the second month since then this reunion romance + ghost mystery has been chosen as a monthly deal since then.  What does that mean?  It means the price has been temporary dropped by 50% to $1.99 for the month of June, so hurry to get your copy if you haven’t read it yet!

It also means Silver Lake gets a spot on Amazon’s Monthly Deal page, which is great for visibility.  It’s under romance, but this novel, like my others, is equal parts romance and suspense.  One reviewer recently suggested Silver Lake for fans of the ghost movie What Lies Beneath, which put a huge smile on my face, as that is on the list of my favorite ghost movies!

So grab your copy of this #1 Kindle Bestseller before the June deal is gone, put your feet up, and get lost in the story…A haunting, an old flame, and secrets of the past…happy reading!

#Book Signing at #Bourne Library - #Ghosts + #Romance #CapeCod #amwriting

My very busy new release schedule continues, and I'm thrilled to be the Author of the Month for June at the Jonathan Bourne Library.  I'll be there on Tuesday, June 21, at 7:00 p.m., to talk about my latest novel, HAUNTED SOULS.  This is a steamy military romance mixed with a ghost mystery.  Like my #1 Kindle Bestseller GULL HARBOR, this book is set on Cape Cod, where I'm lucky enough to live.

The Old Jail at night
My home of the last 17 years is perfectly suited to the mingling plot-lines in this story--or maybe it's the other way around, and the Cape inspired a story that could only be set here.  The initial inspiration certainly came from a local landmark: in historic Barnstable Village, the oldest wooden jail house in the entire country, originally built in 1690, remains to this day on scenic Route 6A.  The structure has been preserved and is now open to visitors--if you don't mind the ghosts, that is.  According to the Cape and Islands Paranormal Research Society, the Old Jail is actively haunted by those who perished in the harsh conditions.  When my sister was visiting, we took a "haunted historical tour" which began and ended at the Old Jail, and as we listed to stories about the place, I wondered, "What if a ghost followed someone from the tour home?"  The idea was born.

I don't want to give to much away, but as the story developed, it became clear to me that one of the protagonists was in the military, sent overseas for several years.  Cape Cod has a large military population, with Joint Base Cape Cod hosting multiple military services.  In fact, we landed here through my husband's Coast Guard assignment.  Our neighbors and best friends are also a military family (Air Force), and their knowledge helped me form Brett's backstory.

I hope you'll give HAUNTED SOULS a try for your next summer read--steamy romance mixed with spooky suspense, something for everyone!  And if you're in the Cape Cod area, put Tuesday night on your calendar and join me.  We'll chat about Cape history and legends, light refreshments will be available, and I'll be signing copies of all my books, including this one.  For additional info, visit the Bourne Library Events Page.

HAUNTED SOULS is out! #Ghost Mystery + Military #Romance #NewRelease

It's here!  HAUNTED SOULS, my fourth novel, releases today from The Wild Rose Press! This steamy military romance/ghost mystery set on Cape Cod is now available on Kindle, Nook, at Kobo, and in print.  

Four years ago, Emily Shea and Staff Sergeant Brett Leeds agreed to part with no strings attached. Sparks flew during their brief affair, but fate intervened, sending Brett overseas. When an unexpected pregnancy derailed Emily’s own plans, her attempts to locate Brett were soon overwhelmed by the challenges of single motherhood. Now, Brett has returned home, and Emily is forced to share her secret.

Despite feeling betrayed, Brett is determined to forge a relationship with their son, Tyler. As the former lovers battle both their inner demons and their mutual desire, another presence enters their lives—Tyler’s imaginary friend.

Soon, however, the chilling evidence points to a different conclusion: a ghost has formed a dangerous connection with their son. Emily’s attempts to help both a lost soul and a friend in need spiral toward a deadly confrontation, and Brett must race to save Emily before he loses her again—forever.

Here's a few of my favorite lines from one of the first editorial reviews:

"Kathryn Knight's ability to weave a tale of such intricate design is refreshing, as this is not just a romance of second chances for one couple too young for what life threw at them, but a chance for another lost soul to finally find the comfort and love it seeks. Wonderful world building, strong characters...a fabulous tale, start to finish." - Tome Tender (5 stars)
