I’m so happy to welcome Lisa Kessler back to the blog! She’s here with some wonderful news about her paranormal romance, Night Walker, as well as a giveaway (it’s international!!), so be sure to check out the details at the bottom of the post! Over to Lisa!
Hi everyone –
Big thank you to Kristin for letting me have a spot on her beautiful blog! I met Kristin when my paranormal romance novel, Night Walker, debuted last August.
Lots of good things have happened since then, and it’s exciting to come back to share it with you! Since August, my publisher signed a deal with one of the largest book distributors in the country and Barnes & Noble selected Night Walker for their stores! Woot!
Then last week I got the news that Walmart has selected Night Walker to be one of the titles in their Summer Beach Read Promo!!! YAY!!! So the Night Walker cover will be all over the Walmart site from June 26th – July 3rd for the promo! It’s been a dream come true to see Night Walker reaching readers and receiving emails from people touched by Calisto’s story…
And I can’t help but think these new opportunities might not have come about without the awesome support of book bloggers like Kristin. When my first book came out from my brand new publisher, book bloggers jumped on board to help spread the word to readers, and that support has carried Night Walker forward rapidly in a short amount of time!
So what better way to celebrate than to give you a little sneak peek into the book, and then give one commenter a signed paperback!!! WOOT!!!
“Walk with me?” His low voice stripped away a layer of her
Kate nodded, following him down the steps to the sand below,
only stopping for a moment to leave her shoes on the landing. They
walked across the cool beach without saying a word, hand in hand,
and Kate watched the haze float in atop the salt water. It was eerie
and beautiful all in the same moment.
“You are shivering.”
Calisto’s voice added to the tremors that pulsed through her body.
Why did he have to be so perfect? He looked at her like she was the
only woman in the world.
He smiled, raising their joined hands to place a tender kiss on her
knuckle, and then tugged off his coat and draped it over her shoulders.
“Is that better?”
Kate nodded, no longer able to speak. His masculine scent
surrounded her, and before she could stop herself, she pulled his coat
so tight, the cold lining spread gooseflesh across her skin.
He slid the backs of his cool fingers down her cheek, his lips
hinting at a smile. “Good.”
Kate tilted her chin up. When he bent and brushed his lips against
hers, her breath caught. Her pulse raced and electricity shot through
her veins. Her skin warmed. Had she ever wanted anyone this badly?
She brought her hand to his chest. His chiseled muscles
responded to her touch, and a moan escaped her as he clutched her
tighter. Calisto’s fingers slid through her hair, and her lips parted, her
tongue tasting him, tangling with his until her knees buckled.
Dear God, this man could kiss.

About Night Walker:
He gave up his soul for a second chance to love her…
Two and a half centuries ago, Calisto Terana lost everything when a zealous priest murdered the woman he loved. Now, desperate for another chance to love her, he wants redemption for the mistake that cost her life.
She’s haunted by dreams of her own death…
After catching her fiance with another woman, Kate Bradley returns to San Diego to clear her head. The last thing she needs is romance, but after meeting Calisto she’s drawn to him in ways she doesn’t understand.
They’ve waited in the shadows for centuries…
Calisto has no doubt Kate is the reincarnation of his lost love, but the Fraternidad Del Fuego Santo has a new watcher with dark ambitions of his own. As old enemies reemerge and a new threat arises, the betrayal that enslaved Calisto to the night might destroy the only woman he’s ever loved again.
