Touch of Smoke: A New Paranormal Romance From Karissa Laurel

BIG NEWS! I'm so happy to announce that Red Adept Publishing has contracted to publish "Touch of Smoke" a stand alone, paranormal romance to be released in, well...I'm not exactly sure when, but check back for updates!

Here's a hint of what it'll be about:

Three years ago, Rikki Albemarle fled her small Smoky Mountain hometown after watching her best friend die at the hands of a supernatural evil. Haunted by vengeful nightmares, she returns in hopes of finding justice and forcing the truth from the man she believes responsible: Owen Amir, the alluring young army vet who once claimed to love her. But the more Rikki investigates him, the more she finds herself torn between the urgings of her heart and the memory of what she witnessed.

As her search for the truth deepens, she finds herself drawn into the web of an ancient and powerful evil. If she’s going to survive, she’ll have to decide if Owen is truly the monster she thought he was, and whether she trusts him enough to stay and fight for a second chance at love.
