Skyrockets in Flight Blog Hop Delight

Lush Book Reviews

I’ve been a fan of Leslie Kelly’s books for years. She writes super sexy contemporary romances with fabulous characters. Two years ago she started writing psychological suspenseful books as Leslie Parrish. I love her Leslie Kelly books and still buy them as soon as they are released. However, I truly believe Leslie found her voice with her Leslie Parrish books.

The first series of books Leslie Parrish released were the Black CATs novels. The three books in this series are Fade to Black, Pitch Black, and Black at Heart. I loved each and every one of these books and I’m still very hopeful we will get more books in the Black CATs series (really want Brandon’s book so much).

The Extrasensory Agents series came out last year. The first book in the series is Cold Sight and is a little darker than the Black CATs books. I loved it from page 1 and wanted more as soon as I was finished reading. On July 5, the newest Extrasensory Agents book is released. The newest book in the series is Cold Touch. Here is the blurb from the author’s website. ~

Since being gifted--or cursed--with her ability to touch a lifeless body and relive the victim's final moments, Olivia Wainwright has died a hundred deaths. She hears the screams, tastes the fear; feels the excruciating pain--and every glimpse into this darkness draws her deeper into danger.

Now, though, she's met a man who offers a glimmer of light. Savannah Detective Gabe Cooper might look like a sexy good-old-boy, but his laid-back attitude hides a sharp mind and a protective heart. He doesn't believe in psychics--until he meets Olivia and sees firsthand how her dark gift ravages her spirit.
As their bond deepens, Olivia will have to choose between her cold gift and the warmth Gabe provides. But her past is catching up with her, and Gabe can't refuse when she needs his help solving a crime that's haunted her for over a decade...her own murder.

I’m giving away 2 copies of Cold Touch during the blog hop. Hope new readers fall in love with her books as much as I have. The giveaway is open from July 4 -10 and I’ll draw winners from all of the comments during that time. Due to shopping cost, this giveaway is open to the US only (sorry).

Liza, this is such a cool idea. Don't count me in for the contest...already have my copy, autographed. I love Les, and you're right, she has found her niche in this genre. I hope a lot of new fans emerge from the this blog hop. Makes me wish I had a blog, so I could join in on all the fun. Hey, she won the National Reader's Choice Award for Cold Sight. I was sooooo excited.

Liza if you want, I could add 2 or 3 books, so there could be more winners. Let me know. Good luck to all the posters.

Peace and love,
Paula R.

Paula, you are awesome! Leslie is actually going to personalize the 2 winner's copies. I'm hoping lots of people fall in love with the Leslie Parrish books too!

So excited Cold Sight won the NRCA! I totally was jumping up and down and cheering when I saw that Leslie won.

Paige Prince said...

I LOVE Leslie Kelly, but I think her Leslie Parrish books sound even better! Definitely along my line of favorite kind of books. :)

BLHmistress said...

thanks for the giveaway, Leslie Kelly is a new one to me as well. Happy 4th!


Paula R said...

Okay! I'm hoping the same thing. I think they will.

BLHmistress, Leslie Kelly is the softer side of Leslie Parrish. She write romances for Harlequin and Hqn Blaze!

Parrish is the more gut wrenching, @$$-kickin' side of her. LOVE that side. Her books are awesome, and they hit you on a visceral level.

Good luck to commenters.

Peace and love,
Paula R.
