Super Blast for Heroes Live Forever

Today is a book blast for Chris Karlsen's Heroes Live Forever, a Paranormal Romance. It is one day only at lots of blogs, and I will post links at the end of the post for more chances to win. What do you win, you ask cheekily?? Well, Chris will be giving a digital copy of her thriller "Golden chariot" to one random commenter at each stop, and a $50 Amazon card to one randomly chosen commenter on the tour. So be sure to leave your email with your comment. Now, for a bit about Chris Karlsen, and her book, Heroes Live Forever.

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.


Blurb for Heroes Live Forever:

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.

Excerpt for Heroes Live Forever:

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.

And, as promised, the links to the tour stops.
