ENLIGHTENED Tour and Giveaway

 Enlightened: A Tale of Love and Light

Loti Dupree fears that when her husband died, she lost her soul. Harboring a painful secret, she flees her life in a small Appalachian town for the ashram, the spiritual retreat where she trained to be a yogini.  But she is running from more than grief. An ominous nightmare the night before she leaves sets her on a dangerous path of self-discovery that challenges everything she believes – and threatens her life.
While dodging psychic attacks from an unknown assailant, she struggles with her growing attraction to a broody, handsome and completely frustrating vampire. Loti races to understand who and what she is before her anonymous enemy catches up with her.
Loti thought she couldn't survive her husband’s death, but among healers, witches, and vampires, she discovers not only a future, but a family. About the Author Melissa Lummis considers herself a truth seeker, a peaceful warrior, a paranormal and fantasy writer, an avid reader, a thru-hiker GAàME ’98, a wife, a mother, and a free thinker. She believes the universe conspires to help an adventurer. And if we live our lives as if it is a daring adventure (and it is!), then everything we need will find its way to us. The author lives in rural Virginia with her husband, two children, an Alaskan Malamute and a myriad of forest creatures. The nature of her mind dictates that she write to stay sane. Otherwise, her fertile imagination takes off on tangents of its own accord, creating scenarios and worlds that confuse the space-time continuum. Namaste, dear friends.

Our review: I've seen so many paranormal mash-up books lately. It seems the days of simple vampire OR were OR fae books are behind us. So I was a little weary when I considered this new combination: witches, vampires and yoginis? How on earth will this work?

But it does. Oh, how it does! Author Melissa Lummis spins with seamless perfection a tale where these groups exist together. She makes it work. She does an amazing job of moving us--with Loti--from the fear and despair at the beginning of the story through a journey of discovery, both self and worldly, to a place of acceptance and peace.

Don't miss this one. It will make you laugh, cry, shiver and think. . .and what more can you ask of a book?
