Spotlight: Kathleen Ann Gallagher Visits to Talk About Contemporary Romance, The City Lights Series!

Today, we're doing something a little different. Fellow author Kathleen Ann Gallagher is stopping by to talk about her series!


Hello, Kathleen! It's great that you're visiting MLB.  :)


Hi! Thank you for having me here.




My pleasure, of course! So, let me ask a few questions since you're here...


All right.

Can you tell us a little about your books? When did they come out and where can we get them?

Sure, thank you for asking.  The City Lights Series was released by Beau Coup Publishing. Book 1, Savannah’s Journey was released in 2014, and book 2, Perfect For Her followed soon after. They are stories about friends from New Jersey who live in New Jersey, but work in NYC. Savannah Mason and Angela Carnes work at a television station. 

Both books can be found on Amazon.



So, what inspired your book? How did you get into writing contemporary romance?


Since I live in New Jersey, it is fun to have some of my characters live there too. I also love NYC and find it a magical and exciting city. Savannah’s Journey was a story I’d been thinking about for a while. It is one of my favorite second chance stories. I hope you enjoy following Savannah on her road to discovery. 

Perfect for Her is Angela’s story. She is Savannah’s best friend, and I fell in love with her. She deserved to find happiness. 

I enjoy reading contemporary romance. My readers can relate to some of the struggles of my heroines as they meet their dream match, and come to terms with some of the conflicts along the way. 

Sounds good to me!


What, do you feel, sets your series apart from other books in the genre?


I’d like to think The City Lights Series are books that remain in the reader’s memory long after they finish reading them. If they find the message to be uplifting, I’ve done my work well.
Savannah’s Journey is a timeless tale about forgiveness and healing. Perfect For Her is about following your heart in all areas of your life. 

All right.


Give us a teaser or two from one of these books if you can.


“I’m crazy about you, Savannah,” he murmured as a rapid string of kisses left her weak and wanting more. With a low moan, Rob ran his tongue along the seam of her lips, begging for entrance.
With a whimper of surrender, Savannah allowed him access, opening her mouth. Rob clasped her closer and deepened the kiss, his mouth eating at her as if he’d devour her. A sense of elation filled her spirit. This was what she’d been missing. Her whole body was on fire. An ache radiated from her inner thighs all the way to the tips of her nipples. She couldn’t be still. The moment he placed his hand on her breast, Savannah gave a soft moan. Unable to hold back, she ran her hand across his thigh, needing to touch him. Each hungry stoke of his fingers on her skin felt magical, and she was ready to give herself completely.
When they broke away for a moment, she softly whispered, “Come inside.”
He replied in a low, breathy tone, “Are you sure?”
“Yeah, I am.” A tremulous smile spoke for itself. Was this the right thing to do? Savannah questioned herself, but she knew her mind had lost the battle. Her heart had won.

Ooh! (Fans herself.) I definitely want to know what happens next.

So, I'm sure readers are curious about your next writing project. Can you tell us what you've got cooking up now or is that a secret?


I do have some exciting news to share.  I have a fun paranormal series that is going to be re-released soon.

The Moonlight & Jasmine Series are stories set in The White Mountain Region of New Hampshire. My heroines are Wiccan witches who have a tough time with the men in their lives, due to their different views. They won’t give up as they both strive for independence and hold on tight to their beliefs. 

Book 1, Night Magic, and book 2, A Summer’s Enchantment coming soon. 

Lovely! I can certainly relate as I have a Wiccan series as well. ;)

Thanks so much for stopping by to tell us about The City Lights Series, Kathleen! 

My pleasure!

Readers, you'll just have to pick up a copy of this contemporary romance series! :)


Here are the blurbs.
