Happy Friday!!! Today I’m on the book birthday blitz for Lure of Obsession by Lisa Kessler and am bringing you a guest post ‘Earning that Happily Ever After’ and another giveaway! Yipee!!
Fated Mates meets Clash of the Titans!
Melanie Jacoby is the human vessel for the Muse of Tragic Poetry, but she isn’t prepared for the tragedy of finding her roommate dead at the bottom of the stairs.
Nate Malone is the detective assigned to the case, but as the evidence points to an accidental fall, the visions begin. He sees a killer in a gold Kronos mask.
Mel is the next target, but Nate’s determination to protect her is almost as strong as his desire for her.
And tragedy isn’t part of his plan.
The Prophecy – “Every generation the nine daughters of Zeus are reborn, and with their rebirth are also nine Guardians. They will be marked by the gods, and given gifts to protect his treasure. Their abilities will only be unlocked when they find their muse.”

Earning that Happily Ever After
Thanks for having me on the Curled up with a good Book Blog! If we’ve never met, I write paranormal romance, and my devoted readers will tell you, I like my characters to earn their Happily Ever After.
What does that mean? One of my favorite parts of a romance is that big black moment. We’ve been building up to it the whole book. Will they or won’t they? Whatever they fear most, we’re going to face it. I yearn to see them grow into the people I know they can be. This is usually the moment in a book that can bring tears to your eyes.
My poor husband has found me sobbing in the kitchen more than once as I face having to write that scene. By the time I get there, I love my characters, and I don’t want to hurt them, but for me, it’s that huge moment when love really does cause a transformation. That’s when the happily ever after is only as delicious as that dark time is painful.
In LURE OF OBSESSION my hero, Detective Nate Malone, is a loner and all-business until he gets called out to a potential crime scene and meets Melanie Jacoby. He has no idea that Mel has a secret. She’s the human vessel for the Muse of Tragic Poetry, and the second they meet, Nate’s birthmark burns as his psychic power is awakened.
Getting to witness Nate open his heart was beautiful. I don’t want to give away too much, but I loved writing this book, and the black moment made me bawl, but it was SO worth it in the end. I hope you’ll give the Muse Chronicles a read!
So what is it about romance novels that keep you coming back for more?
