Kiss Me in the Rain (Destined for Love: Mansions) - Lindzee Armstrong

 

It's hard to control your own destiny when fate has other plans.  Lindzee Armstrong can always be counted on to keep the laughs going and the drama flowing.  Kiss Me In the Rain brings more emotion than usual.  Tyler and Layla are caught in the eye of a storm that seems to have no end in sight.  The heart is the deciding factor, but along the way encounters with danger await and adorable heads right into trouble. Laugh your way into love is a motto that Ms. Armstrong takes to heart and that mantra influence every story she writes.

Blog Tour: Love Is Death by L.P. Masters with Excerpt and Giveaway

 

Today’s stop is for  L.P. Masters’s Love Is Death. We will have info about the book and author, and a great excerpt from the book, plus a great giveaway. Make sure to check everything out and enter the giveaway.

Happy Reading :) 

 


 

Gina’s plan for her afterlife is simple: survive as long as possible. The afterlife is a ghost-kill-ghost kind of place. When she meets newly-dead Alec, she can’t help her desire to protect him. Before she knows it, she finds herself falling for him, despite the little voice in her head telling her it’s a bad idea. Alec’s goals don’t mesh well with Gina’s plans. Determined to save his living sister from a murderer, he’s willing to disobey the laws of a well-established cult in the afterlife. If the cult finds out, they’ll kill him. Again. He’s hesitant to accept Gina’s help and threaten her afterlife, but he’s guaranteed to fail without her. Together they embark on a perilous mission, but the most dangerous aspect of all is the threat of falling in love. Because in the afterlife... love is death.

"Why are you doing this?" Alec asked abruptly. My breath hitched. I didn't know how to answer. The same question had plagued me since we'd left the Chinaman's warehouse. Why was I doing this? I knew the answer in my gut, but I didn't want to say it. I did anyway. "Because I don't want to see you get hurt ag…" I barely stopped myself before I said again, then wondered if he'd noticed. I frowned when it became obvious that he had, but thankfully I was turned away from him looking out the windshield. "What was that?" "I said I don't want to see you get hurt." He was quiet for a moment. "Did you say again?" The wiper blades must have swished water off the windshield at least ten times before I said anything. I tried to come up with an excuse, but I finally decided the truth would be the best option. "Yes. Again." I looked out the window. I couldn't bear to see him. "I was there when you got shot." "Yes!" His response surprised me, so I turned around in my seat to look at him. "I knew I wasn't crazy." I shrugged. "I'm not so sure about that. But how does my being there mean you're sane?" "I told Gary that I saw you before I died, and he told me it was impossible. I swore when I first met you that I'd…" His eyes glazed over as if remembering what he'd done. "I asked you for help." I forced a smile even though I desperately wanted to cry. "Begged was more like it." "But you left." I faced forward again. This was precisely the reason I hadn't wanted to tell him I was there. He didn't even realize what I'd done for him, the danger I'd put myself in to try to save him. I could have told him but I was filled with rage that I'd even tried, and filled with guilt that I had failed. "I'm sorry." Alec sat forward and placed a hand on my shoulder. Like every time he touched me, I felt that incredible heat rushing down my arm and into my core. He shook his head. "I'm not mad at you. In fact, knowing what I know now, I'm glad you left." I held my breath to keep myself from saying anything. I wanted to tell him I hadn't left, but at the same time, I was determined not to.

 

 

 

 

 

Born and raised in the rainy streets of the Seattle Area, L.P. Masters spent her fair share of time staring out rain-streaked windows and writing books. Masters has always had extremely vivid dreams, which often spark inspiration for her novels. In 1999, after one such dream, Masters began her first writing project. She has participated in National Novel Writer's Month every November since 2010. Writing isn't the only thing she can do with a pen in her hand, she also enjoys sketching and drawing—with varying degrees of success. Masters now lives in the slightly-less-dreary city of Spokane Washington with her husband and two wonderful daughters.

Sincere
His Convenient Husband (Love and Sports) - Robin Covington

Isaiah & Victor have a flash of sexy in their past that may come back to bite them.  Isaiah is offering to help Victor stay here in America.  To go home for him would be death.  Isaiah struggles with this, since he is very attracted to Victor and has a hard time staying hands off.

 

Victor is starting to have real feelings for Isaiah.  He finds the many parts of his personality very attractive and knows he is falling for him.  How do you find love when the person you care for has no interest in falling?

 

This book was really sexy.  I loved the interaction with the characters.  The pages sizzle with electricity from the main characters chemistry.  I love that the backstories of both are varied, diverse, and very real and easy to understand.  Really good read.  I give this book a 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

 

 

***This early copy was given in exchange for an honest review by Netgalley and its publisher.

Quick historical romance with a ghostly character.
A Ghostly Tale of Forbidden Love - Madeline Martin

This is a tale of finding that love you are willing to give up everything else for. Throw in a ghost bent on revenge and many intrigues and misunderstandings. Senara and Gavin conquer all to have that forever love. I loved how the ghost reached out to Senara and how Gavin allowed his feelings for her to be real rather than give into his past and expectations. I recommend this story.

This is my unsolicited review.

Reading progress update: I've read 36 out of 208 pages.
The Thin Man - Dashiell Hammett

Golly these folks are boozers!!!  I wonder if they don't trust the water. If I drank as much as they did, I wouldn't be able to think straight.  Is it an attempt to portray an idealized life of the leisure class or something else?

 

While it's a hall-mark of classic noir, I'm also not particularly enjoying the obsessively male gaze.

 

I do want to fill the Classic Noir square, and it's a short book, so I think I'll keep going a bit longer.  But I've just requested The Best American Noir of the Century - James Ellroy,Otto Penzler from the library as a backup.
