Please welcome the most awesome Kait Gamble to the StudioBlog. We’ve known Kait for a while now and have worked with her in the past, so it’s great to catch up in this interview and get together again. Whoo hoo!

Studioenp: Silence or noise when writing?

Kait: I can go either way and it usually depends on my mood. I’ve been known to write quite happily while in the room with rabid gamers and at other times I’ll have to lock myself in a room just to get a few words down.

 

Studioenp: Yes, it all depends on the mood of the day, doesn’t it? What’s your latest release?

Kait: Touch, the first book in my new Sensations Series comes out April 11th. It’s a novella about a scientist who’s better with microscopes than with people who finds herself in a foreign situation for her. Having to woo a potential investor. Instead of the old man she envisions, Kieran is young, hot and seems to get her. This, of course, makes things even more awkward for her.

 

Studioenp: Oooh sounds jolly good! Nice to hear about a book with a scientist in it. How did the plot come about for it?

Kait: I have no idea! The idea of an awkward scientist having to try and persuade a philanthropist to throw money at them just kind of popped into my head and was too fun to resist.

 

Studioenp: Brilliant! Resistance is futile… How long did it take you to write it?

Kait: About a week once I got going.

 

Studioenp: Super fast! Fab! Those types of books are great when they almost write themselves, aren’t they? What’s next on your writing list?

Kait: I’m currently working on a contemporary YA for an anthology then I’m finishing off a book for the Beautiful Skin Anthology with Emmy before getting back on track with the Sensations Series. At the same time, I’m working on some longer works as well which require some ruminating while I write.

 

Studioenp: Ah, the wonderful Beautiful Skin book. It’s going to be awesome! Plotter or panster?

Kait: Pantser…most of the time. There are some occasions where I plot out points in a story that I want to hit, but getting from A to B is pantsing all the way.

 

Studioenp: Best way, in Em’s opinion! What is your go-to form of procrastination?

Kait: Gaming, cooking, cleaning, taking photos of the cat…you name it and I’m probably doing it when I want to avoid writing.

 

Studioenp: Hahahaha. Em’s been known to clean—yes, clean, dear God—rather than do what she’s meant to be doing. Oh, the horror of it. All that dust and whatnot. How many hours per week do you write?

Kait: I have no idea. I don’t look at the clock when I write but rely on hitting a daily wordcount.

 

Studioenp: Great way of doing it. What’s one genre you’ve always wanted to write but haven’t—and will you ever write it?

Kait: Paranormal Romance. I have a few ideas and will get to them eventually…I hope!

 

Studioenp: That’s the ticket, what! (Did you like that spiffing English accent?) What’s the best book you’ve written?

Kait: LOL! Isn’t that like asking who your favourite child is? I like to think that I’m improving with each book and hopefully readers feel the same!

 

Studioenp: Aww, we wouldn’t want you to choose when you put it like that. Well, it’s been fab having you here and finding out what you’re up to. I hope you come back when we do an interview with all the authors at once on Beautiful Skin. That should be interesting!

Dear readers, feast your orby-orbals on Kait’s excerpt and help yourself to custard tarts and cheese straws. Yummers! Oh, and there’s tea and coffee, as usual. The pods for the Tassimo are over there. Enjoy!

About Kait Gamble:

Kait was born and raised in the wilderness of the Pacific Northwest and started writing to entertain herself during the long winters as a child. Insatiably curious with a love of learning new things, she’s picked up many random skills including three languages and two martial arts. After travelling three continents (the other four are on her bucket list), she settled in England with her family where she spends most of her time cultivating her daughter’s love of reading and writing, scribbling ideas on every available scrap of paper, and trying out dialogue on her cat.

 

   

 

 

Blurb for Touch:

Can his touch thaw her icy façade?

Dr. Lily Cole might just be as cool as the surrounding ice to others, but awkward and shy Lily chooses to focus on her research than pursuing relationships. Her interests widen somewhat when she’s put in charge of showing a handsome philanthropist around the facility in the hopes of acquiring much needed funding.

Kieran King is used to having people fawning over him so when he meets surly Dr. Cole, he’s intrigued. His research has deemed them a good cause but the main draw is meeting the fascinating researcher. Challenged, he’s determined to show that he has knowledge as well as skills he’s more than willing to share with her. In and out of bed.

But will Lily let him?

Excerpt for Touch:

Pushing the shirt off his shoulders, she pressed her palms flat against his solid chest, absorbing the warmth and feeling the latent strength there. While he wasn’t massively muscular, Kieran was incredibly well built and undoubtedly masculine. She couldn’t wait to see if the rest of him was just as tantalizing.

She hesitated after running her hands over his ab muscles. Then her fingers reached the waistband of his jeans.

Kieran caught her hands.

Lily tipped her head back to look at him. If he was stopping now…

He ran his finger along her jaw, keeping her eyes on his. “I want you to know that this in no way affects whether or not I decide to fund your research. I had already planned on giving you and everyone else at the facility whatever you need.”

Her heart filled almost to bursting. “Really?”

“Really.” He brushed his lips against hers. “I did my own research. I know what you’re doing here is worthwhile. I’m willing to provide you with anything you want.” Kieran tasted her with a quick dip of his tongue. “And need.”

And what she needed right then was him. Naked.

Yet she couldn’t help but tease him. “I guess I don’t have to go through with this, then, since you’re already giving us the money.”

He reared back, but the shock on his face faded when she giggled.

“You had me there for a second.” Kieran tugged her jeans down. Clearly in more of a hurry than he’d previously been.

She helped him get them off before assisting him with his own and throwing the garments aside.

The instant they were free, he picked her up and pressed her against the wall. “If you’d stopped us, I don’t know if I could stand it.”

“I know what you mean.” She let her gaze rove over his body and wasn’t disappointed by what she saw. Kieran was a very handsome man and perfectly proportional. Except for the very large erection that was prodding her in the stomach. She jerked her attention upward to meet his cocky smile.

Lily let him hook her legs around his hips, giving her intimate knowledge of his cock as he walked them to her bed. It seemed too small and narrow to fit him let alone both their bodies, but he didn’t seem deterred. Carefully laying her on the bed, he stared at her lovingly as he kneeled over her.

Kieran lowered his head. When she expected his lips back on her skin, there was nothing. Then he blew a stream of cold air over her breasts and watched with satisfaction clear on his face when her body reacted accordingly. He opened his mouth wide, then breathed hot air over her stomach just a moment before he slid lower.

Lily couldn’t hold back the gasp when he wedged his shoulders between her thighs and closed his scorching mouth over her. Stars sparked in her eyes when he alternated tasting her arousal with long lashes of his tongue and sucking her clit with devastating skill.

Strong hands gripped her hips, almost as if he knew she was about to fly off the bed.

Then, with a flick of his tongue over the sensitive bundle of nerves, pleasure crashed into her. Lily gripped his hair as she keened her delight. Kieran didn’t let up until she tried to push him away from her overstimulated body.

Heart racing and gasping for air, Lily tapped him on the shoulders. When he looked up at her with a hopeful smile, she beckoned him upward until they were face to face and he rested hip to hip with her.

She grinned. “Well, I’ll admit your theoretical knowledge is impressive. But I’m interested in seeing if you can wow me with the practical.”

Kieran chuckled. “Gladly.”
