Delve into the Mystery of Atlantis with guest author KJ Montgomery

introducing paranormal romance author guest blogs

Today kicks off a new series of posts on Jessica Aspen Writes. I’ve invited paranormal romance authors of all types to show off their stuff! I left the posts open, so you’ll be seeing a variety of posts from a variety of romance authors, all paranormal, of course. Today we start with author KJ Montgomery blogging about her mystery series with a paranormal twist. Please welcome, KJ Montgomery!

My series, The Katie Walsh Mysteries, starts with the novel, Trove. Trove introduces the reader to the characters that will be featured throughout the series. In this book, we meet the heroine, Katie Walsh and the hero, Alec MacGowan.

Five years ago, they hooked up for one night, keeping it completely anonymous by not exchanging names or any personal information. Jump forward to the present day, the two are re-united in an effort to bring a murderer out of the shadows. But there’s much more going on than just the search for the murderer.

Katie is an investigative mythologist searching for physical proof that there were survivors of the destruction of Atlantis and that they established settlements across the globe. She believes the ancient Celtic and Norse myths were written about, and refer to them. She is seeking to peel back the legends to get to the true, original meanings.

In Trove, we journey with her and Alec as their seemingly unrelated quests collide and send them on a journey to the Isle of Skye. Here, they each will find answers, but will lead to more questions.

In the second book in the series, currently titled “Harbinger” (though this is subject to change), they will unravel the Celtic legend of the Green Man and mistakenly unleash the Atlanteans and discover that they are not the romanticized people that we’ve made them out to be.

In “Harbinger,” Alec and Katie’s love will be tested by outside forces. The question will be, are they strong enough to survive the challenges or will the danger prove too much for them?

Look for “Harbinger” in the Summer of 2013! In the meantime, get acquainted with the crew in “Trove”. It all starts with “Trove.”

Trove is available in Kindle format and print. Look for other versions in mid-June 2013.



Trove RNC Cover v2 copyTrove Blurb:

 Katie Walsh is an investigative mythologist seeking clues that could lead her into the very distant past and uncover the secrets of the mythic Norland. Alec MacGowan is an archaeologist searching for clues in the recent past in an attempt to bring a murderer to justice.

Anonymous lovers five years before, they’re re-united as their worlds collide when they are thrown together to decipher the murdered man’s notes and identify his killer. As the quest unfolds, they are forced to deal with their simmering attraction and hidden secrets.

Can they uncover the secret hidden in the murdered man’s notes before the killer finds them? And can they open their hearts to each other before it’s too late?
