Love's Paradox by Laura Kreitzer, Blog Tour: Excerpt & Giveaway

Hello & welcome to today's stop in the Love's Paradox blog tour. I'm thrilled to share an excerpt from Laura Kreitzer's new release. First, here's a little bit about the book:

Paperback, 1st, 288 pages
Expected publication: May 5th 2014 by Revolution Publishing, Inc.
Stalked by her abusive ex-fiancĂ©, Rae Zachery retaliates by singing karaoke and spilling all their dirty secrets to the entire bar. When her ex attempts to silence her brazen performance, sexy, leather-clad Parker comes to her rescue and soundly punches her ex in the face. As valiant as that may be, Rae finds Parker’s violent assistance unsettling, yet she can’t help but be drawn to him and his tragic past.

Fighting her attraction for Parker is a battle Rae can’t win, and soon their night of sharing secrets morphs into an undeniable bond. But fate won’t so easily relinquish her grip on their happily-ever-after. Instead of blissfully skipping into obscurity, Rae and Parker are subjected to her ex-fiancĂ©’s vicious proclivities. Who knew love could hurt so good?

Read an excerpt
I lean in, eyebrows high in question. “Yes?”
He brings his lips to my ear, his hot breath fanning over my skin and giving me chill bumps all the way down to my toes. Damn him. “I want you,” he whispers.
He lingers at my ear, the scent of leather and sandalwood wafting off his skin. When he sits back, he’s not smirking or giving me cocky, knowing eyes like I’m expecting. Instead, he continues to watch for my reaction with those penetratingly dark eyes.
All my nerves fire at once—or that’s what it feels like—and I scramble to my feet. My knees hit the bottom of the table, and our drinks tumble over. I tangle with the chair and am about to fall onto

the disgustingly sticky floor when strong hands reach over the table and grab my upper arms, holding me steady as my chair crashes to the ground.
My face is on fire as those closest turn to witness my idiocy, many of them cheering what they think is drunken discombobulation. I would bow for my audience, but Parker’s hands are still on me. He smiles as I shake him off.
“Thanks for the save, but—”
“That’s twice now,” he cuts in, sauntering to my side of the table. “I think that earns me at least two songs worth of dancing. Plus, you spilled my drink. Make it three.”
