Blurb
Mind traveler Chandra Lamar is on the run, not only from her post-catastrophic dystopian government but from a past she can’t remember. A psychic vision pushes her to recall her purpose for being, but it’s a ghost that awakens her desires for a life she fears she’ll never have. Both push her to remember the past because it threatens what she wants in the now; the Nodin men.

Andonis Nodin battles to accept his failures. The heavy burden nearly breaks him when he can’t save a loved one from the grim reaper’s grip and questions his desire for Chandra, the woman he blames for the death around him.

Nikias finds true love with Chandra in his arms, but is desperate to stop her from seeking revenge on a mission he knows is a one way trip.

Ortello knows for them to recapture the love they once felt for each other, he must be willing to let her go. But overcoming his obsession to make Chandra his and his alone isn’t easy.

Will Chandra go through with the vengeance in her heart or give it up for love? Who is the powerful woman in her haunting visions and will those revealing apparitions crumble her world with the Nodin clan? Does Chandra find true love in the arms of the Nodin men or does her Phantom Desire forever own her heart?

Guest Post with author Kim Mullican - Thicker Than Water #Mystery #Suspense

guestpost
The Human Condition
First, I want to thank Houston for letting me knock her unconscious and allowing me to take over her page today.  She’ll be awake with you soon.

Backstory is something you have to treat with delicate hands when writing a novel. You can’t flood a novel with backstory. That’s a huge faux pas for an author.

Each character has their own backstory, what’s shaped and molded them over time to the interesting and unique people they are today. When writing Thicker Than Water, I put a lot of time into each character and their backstory. Who or what caused Michelle Mott to decide to be a P.I.? How did Marty, an otherwise smart kid and straight A student to live on the streets and try to steal Michelle’s bag? Why is Daniel, this sexy tall Italian boy, so socially awkward one minute, then acting like a sex starved predator the next? And why on earth does Helen put up with them all and more importantly, decide to mother them all in her own unique way?

The dynamic between them is easy to define as you read the book… they become more than friends.  They become family. Enter Gino Salito, the local crime lord who has everyone quaking in their boots. Gino is handsome and charming but he has blood on his hands. Nothing is black and white where Gino Salito is concerned, it’s very gray and readers are finding that they love my mobster, despite his murderous past and less than legal ways.

With Michelle knocking on death’s door, the ties that bind are stretched in a manner that will leave you wondering if blood really is thicker than water.

Okay, I’m off to rouse Houston. Hopefully she’ll forgive the bump on the head.

 blurbBlood may be thicker than water, but family isn’t necessarily who you’re related to. In this suspenseful mystery with a romantic twist, we follow Private Investigator Michelle Mott on her most exciting case to date. Wisecracking Mott has been a loner since her parents died. When Daniel Cardinale walks into her office with her most interesting case yet, his world threatens to turn hers upside down. He needs her to find out who is sending him anonymous money and what the truth is behind his dead fiancé’s demise. If his case weren’t complicating her life enough, local crime lord Gino Salito has taken an interest in Mott. Mott’s empty life begins to fill up with an unexpected and rag-tag group of people, and she’s afraid her dangerous life will take them away, leaving her alone once again. In truth, it’s Mott’s life that may be the one at risk. She’ll have to hope that blood isn’t always thicker than water.

 excerptI am about to die. I don’t mean in the Sylvia Plath-we’re-all going-to-die-sometime sort of way. In mere moments, the meathead behind the barrel of the handgun held to my temple will pull the trigger. The hammer will come down, igniting a tiny explosion that will send a lead ball tearing through my cranium. My brains, bones and blood will spray on the area beside me. I won’t even hear a click. I won’t feel a thing. Idiots. This is the least creative way to murder someone. And the suicide note they had me write sounds nothing like me. No one is going to believe I committed suicide. If they watched one episode of one crime show they’d know I needed gun powder residue on my hands, not duct tape residue on my wrists. This has to be the worst faked suicide in history. That’s what you get when you hire steroid induced freaks with the IQ of a cannoli. I should have known this would happen. Wrong guy in your bed, you get a little nosey and this is where you wind up. Cold barrel pressed against your temple by some guy who doesn’t even fully understand why his boss wants you expired. Nor does he care. He doesn’t even care that his boss is too much of a puss to pull the trigger himself. I should be crying or begging for my life. But I’m not. I’m sitting here like a limestone statue: cold, calm…it’s sort of creepy, actually. Fear and panic should be knocking at my door. Instead an unexpected feeling of calm was all I had. Maybe I knew this was a possibility.

EXTRA! EXTRA! READ ALL ABOUT IT! 
RAVE REVIEWS! 
ALL 4 AND 5 STARS
for
HOUSTON HAVENS'
 Sinful Surrender 
IT has hit Best Sellers list at ARe, and Amazon in the UK and USA!
HERE'S A SAMPLE of the kind of Reviews SINFUL SURRENDER IS GETTING:



Once in a while, a book draws you so deeply and completely into it that when you finish and return to your reality, a feeling of loss stays with you. You find yourself thinking about this reality and the people you met, wondering what they would be like if they were real? If you could see and feel and touch the characters with your hands the way you wish....

I am in awe of the creativity, imagination and genius this author has to have. She was able to create not only a physical world with its many layers but the societies that sprung up within those physical boundaries, tied together by a shared (and sometimes hidden) history that impacts all that must happen going forward. She created a current reality so enticing that this reader is eager to return but she also created a history for each facet of her world and has intertwined them in a complex and compelling way. Can the characters discover the truth of their past in order to have a future? This question occasionally runs through my mind as there is a mystery in this story that wants to be solved and teases the reader even when away from the book.

Logan, Drakkar and Arlo came alive to me as I read this book. They became people who's lives I care about. I followed along on their search for the truths they needed to survive. I marveled at the depth of their love for each other as brothers and their ability to understand each other's mind and actions, even preparing what to say when one (predictably) started a conversation about trust, betrayal or Fay. Fay seemed to be the one thing they had difficulty agreeing on, perhaps even the one thing that could drive them apart. No matter what they said or felt, they all knew she was somehow a part of their shared destiny.

I hate reviews with spoilers so I can't say much else other than I LOVED this book, these characters and this interesting world. I want to go back and find out what happens next! I want the next book SOON, please.
