What if the next new drug was you? Raleigh’s body produces a drug that could define the future of medicine if the dangerous world surrounding it doesn’t kill her first.

Eighteen-year old Raleigh Groves can sense disease in others and is suffering from her own unexplained illness as well. After years and dozens of doctor visits, she has given up hope of ever finding a cure, let alone a diagnosis. Then she meets a man who explains that her talent and curse are linked. Her body produces a drug, Lucidin, which allows her to sense others. She’s rare, and the drug she makes is coveted.

Rho has spent the last few years on the run. The Lucidin that is racing through his system makes him a target. Surrounded by addicts and dealers on one side and scientists and doctors on the other, he has to rely on his wits and his team to stay one step ahead. So far he has stayed afloat, but some of his brothers haven’t been as lucky.

As Rho and Raleigh collide they must face the perilous world of Lucidin together. Nothing is black-and-white and Raleigh must decide where her alliances lie. Sometimes the hardest heart to sense is your own.


Kate Tailor lives in Boulder, Colorado. She has a background in molecular biology and pharmacology. Writing has been a passion of hers since she was young.

Top ten places to write:

11.)   Café Sole: It’s a small coffee house in Boulder, Colorado. A couple of times a week they have live jazz at night. It is a great place to sit down, write, and listen to some good music.
22.)   The airport: Travel gets me thinking about all the places I would like to go. If I can’t go there, I might as well have my characters. A lot of my trips have inspired locations in my books.
33.)   My backyard: Something about being outside makes me think about weather and the physical setting of my novel.
44.)   My desk: Honestly, who doesn’t include their desk in the list of places to write?
55.)   My bed: Sometimes I will wake up with a great idea. When I do I pull out my computer and write.
66.)   The Library: The smell of books always makes me want to create one.
77.)   Pearl Street mall:  This is an outdoor mall in Boulder, Colorado. It is a great place to watch people go by and think of interesting characters.
88.)   School: While I was a student I sometimes wrote between study breaks. It was a great escape between lecture notes.
99.)   Parks: This one for the same reason as my backyard. Not as close by, but a great option.

110.) My blue sofa: This is the only place that my cats aren’t able to push over my laptop. It’s not as comfortable place to write, but when my wonderful animals are pestering me I go there.

  1. I love going to coffee shops to work once in a while. I'm not a writer though but I just love the atmosphere. Thanks for hosting today, Melissa! :)
