Heroes Live Forever

[Greetings! Today I'm giving you a sneak peek at Heroes Live Forever by Chris Karlsen. Chris is doing a blog blitz today, all over the web - fifty stops! At every single one, she's giving away a copy of her thriller Golden Chariot to one lucky person who comments, and there's a $50 Amazon Gift Card up for grabs as her grand prize. Enjoy! ~ Lisabet]



BLURB:

Elinor Hawthorne has inherited a house haunted by the ghosts of two medieval knights, Basil Manneville and Guy Guiscard. Basil is the man of her dreams, her knight in shining armor. She falls in love with him and he with her. Basil soon realizes she needs to live a normal life, a happy life with a mortal.

A lifetime later fate intervenes. Basil, still in love with Elinor, is told her spirit lives on in a young woman and he is given another chance at life to find her. 

A tiny snippet to whet your appetite.... 

He turned her around and untied the laces of her dress. His fingers lingered at each sliver of exposed skin the open laces left. The gown fell away from her shoulders and rough palms eased the sleeves down, freeing the arms. He inched the dress over hips, unwrapping her like a gift, the silk pillowing at her feet like a bronze cloud.

Author Bio

I was born and raised in Chicago. My father was a history professor and my mother was, and is, a voracious reader. I grew up with a love of history and books.

My parents also love traveling, a passion they passed onto me. I wanted to see the places I read about, see the land and monuments from the time periods that fascinated me. I’ve had the good fortune to travel extensively throughout Europe, the Near East, and North Africa.

I am a retired police detective. I spent twenty-five years in law enforcement with two different agencies. My desire to write came in my early teens. After I retired, I decided to pursue that dream.

I currently live in the Pacific Northwest with my husband, four rescue dogs and a rescue horse.

Thank you for inviting me today and for the opportunity to spotlight my paranormal romance, Heroes Live Forever.

I am giving away one Smashwords coupon for my romantic thriller, Golden Chariot, to a randomly chosen commenter here. I look forward to talking to everyone.

Just a note: I will be away from my office for a brief period: 9:30 am Pacific Standard Time to approximately 12:30 in the afternoon.

Since Heroes Live Forever has two handsome ghosts haunting the heroine, let me ask how many of you believe in ghosts?

Hi Lisa,

I am not haunted either but have had some spooky stuff happen in different places I've traveled. Journey in Time is a time travel. The hero and heroine in that book are the best friends of the hero and heroine in Heroes Live Forever. I'm working on book 3 in the series, which is also a time travel.
