Guest Blogger Nikki Duncan - Naughty Projections

Given that I’m guest blogging for the Nine Naughty Novelists, it seems only right that we talk about something a little…naughty. Specifically naughty nights.

We all have a wild side or naughty desires or a wicked fantasy, right? Some people have all of the above.

That’s part of the fun about writing romance. I get to be all kinds of people and have all sorts of dreams and desires. The better part is that when I know what each person wants I then get to watch them all play out on the page.

The hero of my newest release—ILLICIT INTUITIONS—is an empath with some unique abilities. These abilities had unconventional sparks flying between Dr. H and Ava. Some of those sparks caused trust issues. Others ignited internal doubts. Others still awakened sleeping secrets and an emotional connection as real as a touch.

Tell me, if you found yourself involved with a true empath, someone who could read your emotions as clearly as if they were your own, how do you think you would handle it? Would it bother you, or do you think the connection would make your relationship more powerful?
ILLICIT INTUITIONS releases Today from Samhain Publishing.

Love could be their greatest liability.

Ava Malia knows three things. She was once a kickass covert operative. She will eventually adjust to her new team, the FBI Specialized Crimes Unit. And the only way to finally be free of her professional past is to solve her first case and get her hands on a game-changing technology. The only problem? Success rides on her ability to swallow her distaste for the persona she must adopt in order to earn the trust of a mysterious scientist.

Dr. H escaped childhood captivity with three things. His sister. Complete control of his gift. And an engulfing distrust of anyone in the government. Adjusting to a life of freedom hasn’t been easy, but he’s found peace in solitude. The sexy woman auditing his empathic studies, though, has a way of getting under his skin that’s both arousing and disturbing. Plus, his psychic ability warns him of secrets so deeply buried in her psyche, they’d be better left alone.

Yet their instant attraction strips away all their protective barriers, down to the foundation of a new, fragile trust. And a vulnerability that, when an old enemy opens fire, could blast away any chance of a future.
