THANKFUL AUTHOR BLOG ROUNDUP
Featuring Katherine Grey
What I'm Thankful For
What I'm most thankful for is my family. I've suffered the sudden death of a loved one along with some of life's other hardships the last few months and my family has made getting through the difficulties a bit easier to bear. They've been there to listen and help me get through the day when all I really want to do is stay in bed with the blankets pulled over my head and pretend the world doesn't exist.
Known only as Lazarus to the band of cutthroats and thieves he leads, William Prescott will do anything to find his missing sister, even blackmail a fragile young woman into helping him. But he never plans to fall in love with this mysterious woman with a troubled past.
Haunted by the memories of war, Olivia St. Germaine wants nothing more than to live a normal life. But when her brother, a doctor, suddenly leaves town without a word, she is forced to use her medical knowledge to help an injured man who puts her life in danger. Can she keep herself safe as she tends Lazarus, or is her heart more vulnerable than she realizes?
“If you don’t leave, I shall have
call the constable.” Olivia headed for the door.
“And how will you accomplish that?”
She halted in mid-step.
“Yes, I know there are no servants in residence.” Lazarus sauntered closer. “Did you play the benevolent mistress and give them the night off?”
Eager to keep him at a distance, she scooted around him and stood at the end of the bed. “What do you want?”
“What do you think I want?”
“Why don’t we dispense with the games, and you just tell me?”
Lazarus closed the space between them in two strides. He pushed her backward onto the bed. Olivia bounced against the soft mattress. She dug her elbows into the thick counterpane in an effort to scramble backward away from him.
Grabbing her ankles, he pulled her toward him in one quick jerk. He leaned over her. His hand closed over her hip, freezing her in place. The warmth of his hand burned through her clothes to her skin.
Feeling truly terrified for the first time since he’d announced his presence, she searched his gaze for some kind of sign this was all a great joke. No, it was no game. His eyes were as hard and cold as glass. “What do you want?” she repeated, her voice a near whisper.
“Stop asking questions about me. Forget you ever heard the name Lazarus.”

At the age of four, Katherine pestered her mother to teach her to read. From that point on, she spent the most of her childhood lost in the pages of one book after another. Soon she began writing stories of her own, populated with characters doing all of the things she was too shy to even contemplate doing herself.
A chance meeting with another author led Katherine to seriously pursue a writing career. Her debut novel, Impetuous, was released by The Wild Rose Press in August 2011.
Katherine lives in upstate NY with her family though she threatens to move south at the beginning of each winter season.
