With summer on the horizon, now is the perfect time to start thinking about beach and poolside reads, and Kate Angell's No Sunshine When She's Gone may be the perfect fit. When Jillian Mac reveals that Aiden Cates' companion has been unfaithful in a "psychic reading," his romantic interest quickly shifts. But Jill isn't one to open up her heart, and Aiden has to work pretty hard to convince her that being vulnerable is worthwhile.
We caught up with author Kate Angell and chatted about psychic readings, what she does in her spare time and more in a 7 questions interview.
Describe your book in one sentence.
Mistaken identity leads to love with a simple twist of fate.
In No Sunshine When She’s Gone, Jill meets Aiden while masquerading as a psychic. Have you ever had a psychic reading yourself?
Several psychic readings over the years, actually. I love all things metaphysical. I read Tarot cards and enjoy astrology.
Tell us what you love most about your hunky hero, Aiden Cates.
Aidan is persistent. Once he meets Jillian Mac, he doesn’t let any obstacle stand in his way of winning her affection. He never gives up on her. He has the patience to wait for her to come around and meet him halfway.
What are the sexiest scenes to write?
I think foreplay is often sexier than the actual act. I like building the tension. Heightening the anticipation and awareness is ‘close’ to the actual orgasm. In No Sunshine When She’s Gone, I had both a shower sex scene between Aidan and Jill and a Jacuzzi scene with Mike and Carrie.
You live in sunny Naples, Florida—what’s your favorite beach read?
I just finished (mainstream fiction) Carnal Curiosity by Stuart Woods, and am presently reading (chick lit) A Total Waste of Makeup by Kim Gruenenfelder.
When you’re not busy writing, what do you like to do in your spare time?
I love to go to the movies. I see two flicks a week. I wind down with yard work. I love to plant flowers. I read a lot, too.
What are you working on next?
No One Like You is my fourth Barefoot William book, which will combine the beach and professional baseball, as the Richmond Rogues come to town for spring training.
