Hot Paranormal Nights Blog Hop

I'm ecstatic to be part of Hot Paranormal Nights Blog Hop. The hop is happening from July 25th – 30th so you have plenty of time to check out all of the other participating authors.  I know that everyone likes free cash so I’m giving away a $5 Amazon Gift Certificate to one lucky randomly drawn commenter at the end of the blog hop.



Fairy tales are paranormal stories! This concept hit me one day with the force of a wrecking ball. I couldn’t understand how I had never seen it before. Fairy tales (not so much magic) are so ingrained into our childhood that I never connected them to the paranormal genre. Sometimes I’m a little slow on the uptake, but the revelation was refreshing.

Here I come with my own paranormal book. The past lives in the story give it the paranormal flair. Sorry, there is no fairy dust, magic shoes or witches in my book. I do have a villain though. I hope you enjoy it.

Title: Love Through Time
Author:  Nana Prah
Genre: Paranormal romance
Heat level: Sweet
Publisher: Black Opal Books
Release date: August 3, 2013 (Just around the corner)

Blurb:
Defending her family – no problem. Recalling past lives – maybe just a small problem. Taking a chance on love again – well…

Jasmine Gibson has her world turned upside down when she meets gorgeous Sean Taylor. He’s the first man she’s been attracted to since her fiancĂ© dumped her two years ago. But when the disturbing daydreams start, Jasmine begins to fear that her actions in a past life may have finally caught up with her.

Sean finds it impossible to stay away from Jasmine even though he can’t shake the inexplicable feeling of betrayal, simmering deep inside him every time he sees her.

To complicate things, someone is out to hurt Jasmine and every time she and Sean are together, the police have to be called. Even if Jasmine can make Sean trust her, the two of them may not stay alive long enough to enjoy their love this time around.


Excerpt:

She was coming to terms about their past lives, but he was having trouble just dealing with her in this one.

“I must have been a great man in previous life,” Sean said jokingly, but Jasmine’s expression turned serious as she held onto the doorpost. “Are you all right? Are you getting lightheaded?”
“No, I’m fine.”
But he could tell something was bothering her. “Now you’re holding something back from me.”
“Do you believe in past lives?”
 “I haven’t thought about it. I’ve seen so much in my travels around the world that I wouldn’t be surprised if it existed. Do you?”
 “I think it might exist, and the thought about coming back and making your soul better is very appealing. At the same time it could be painful, especially if you hurt someone else in a past life and met them again in another.”
Sean felt a chill go up his spine. He knew there was something more to this conversation, but he couldn’t pin point it. He wanted to stay and talk with her about it, but he had to get back to studying.
He leaned down and kissed her cheek. It was nothing but a friendly kiss, but he felt the shock of it straight down to the soles of his feet. Jasmine looked just as affected as he was.

  21. I loved the excerpt and the premise behind the story, as well. My favorite fairy tale is probably the "real" version of the 12 Dancing Princesses where the unfortunate prince follows the princesses for 3 nights, each night becoming invisible and breaking off a branch of silver, gold and pure diamonds. It is lovely and lets the underdog win. Thanks for sharing. I truly wish you had offered a copy of your wonderful book! michelle_willms@yahoo.com
