Mortal Heart by LJ Sealey

IMG_6249Series: Divine Hunter Series Book #4

Release Date: 20th September 2019

IMG_5664

When two hearts bleed,
Heaven doesn’t stand a chance.
Is it possible for a heart to break twice?
Lacy had known from finding out what Michael was that
there would be complications, but she never expected they’d be torn
apart in such a cruel way. Unable to stop herself feeling the things she
did, she knew she would pay for falling in love with an angel, but
this. . . If it hurt this much, then how could she go on without him?
He’d feared this would happen.

It was always only a question of when.

Michael’s nightmares had come true and he hadn’t even
had chance to say goodbye. His heart ached like he never thought
possible, but he was powerless to change what had happened. Now he was
trapped in the heavens awaiting a trial that he already knew the outcome
of. Through her journal he’d lived his mother’s pain after his father
had been taken from her. He couldn’t allow that to happen to Lacy.
He had to get out.

He would get out.

Of all that had happened to him this would be his
toughest fight yet, but it would end in one of two ways: Either Michael
would convince the Thrones to let him live with the woman he had lost
his heart and soul to, or he would die by her side.
Either way, he wasn’t prepared to exist without her.
 Mortal Heart is the fourth and final book in the DivineHunter series.
 * This book contains adult situations and is recommended for ages 17+ * 
L.J. Sealey was born and raised in a little Welsh town by the sea. It rains a
lot, so she often has a great excuse to sit at her writing desk and
while away the hours at her laptop.
She still lives in N.Wales and when she’s not travelling around the country
working with her husband – who is a professional singer – or singing
backup vocals herself, she likes to drive around the beautiful Welsh
countryside. Some think it’s because she enjoys the scenery; others
suspect she’s hunting dragons. L.J also likes to read and watch her
favourite TV shows which normally includes plenty of CSI, The Vampire
Diaries and endless amounts of sitcoms. Being addicted to reading about
vampires, demons, shifters and angels, she has always had a thing for
all things paranormal, and is a big sucker for impossible love stories.
So it was inevitable that when she started writing herself she would mix
the two together.
L.J. Sealey is the author of the paranormal romance series Divine
Hunter.

My Review:

Good grief.  Poor Lacy and Michael have been through the ringer in their short time together.  But is their HEA on the horizon or will the demon forces finally wrench them apart?
Be prepared to have your hopes dashed and reasserted, your tears wrung out and smiles teased, basically your emotions are going to be in overdrive.  Lacy and Michael’s ending was never cut and dried and I love that their HEA is not a foregone conclusion.
I am looking forward with interest to what might be in store for Raz and a certain Glo!!!!  Now having to sit and stiddle my thumbs for the next book!!

Brought to you by Forever Write PR
 
 
Debut author Nomi Summers brings you CAPTURING THE HEART OF THE ROCK STAR, the first installment in her sweet contemporary romance series, Knox Brothers of Arbor Shores. When Shane Knox left his home-town years ago to pursue his dream, he never looked back. Until he finds himself back home and in the presence of his first true love, Avery Cooke. Find out if Shane will find redemption or will he leave for good in this smalltown, second chance, rockstar romance.
 
Even rock stars are haunted by the one that got away… 
 
Chasing music and freedom, Shane Knox left Arbor Shores nine years ago and never looked back… until now. With his best friend, Dax, getting married, Shane is coming home to face his past as well as Avery, the girl he left behind. 
 
The second he lays eyes on her, all of his long suppressed feelings come rushing back in a tidal wave of regret. For him, it was never truly over. But is it too late for a second chance? 
 
Despite being bitter over Shane’s abrupt exit, Avery has bigger problems on her hands than drama with her ex. Her family’s hotel, Arbor Shores Resort, is struggling. Financial difficulties have landed the business in prime position for a real estate buyout, which would destroy all Avery and her family have built. 
 
Putting his career on the line, Shane comes up with a plan that could save the resort. But will it be enough to redeem himself with Avery?

Excerpt 
Copyright @ Nomi Summers 2019 
 
Shane walked Avery to the parking lot, holding her hand the entire way, long after the group could no longer see them. When they reached the car, he turned to her and said, “Thank you for today. I had fun with you.”
“Yeah, me too.” She was starting to soften, and knew she had to pull herself together. “Tomorrow it’s back to business as usual. No need to keep up the fake relationship after everyone leaves.”
“Unless you wanted to?” he asked with a hopeful grin. 
“There’s no use in pretending to be something we’re not unless it evolves to that. Let’s just take it one day at a time and see where this takes us.” 
“Well then, I’ll see you in the morning, boss. I’ll be ready for you to put me to work.”
“See you then,” Avery turned and began to open the door to her car, but she felt Shane push it shut. As she turned to face him to see what he was doing, he leaned in and pinned her gently against the car with his body. One hand on the door, he leaned in as if he were going to kiss her. With his other hand, he brushed his thumb along her bottom lip. 
“What are you doing?” she tried to whisper, but her voice cracked. 
“I’ve been dying to kiss you, Ave.” His voice was low, his breath warm against her cheek, as he leaned in to whisper in her ear, “Ever since I got here, I’ve wanted nothing more than to feel your lips on mine.”
“Shane …” she started, but her voice trailed off. Her legs were getting weaker and weaker. She was running out of fight with this man. 
“Just one kiss, Avery,” he whispered softly. “And then we’ll know.” 
Her eyes fell to his lips, so close to her own, and she began to close her eyes. She did want the kiss, more than anything. But she didn’t want her heart to break all over again. She wanted to be certain this could work before they took it too far. She straightened her back, placing a hand on his chest to create space between them. “I already know, Shane.” 
Before he could say anything more, she leaned forward and dusted a kiss to his cheek. She turned and opened the car door, whispering a brief goodbye before she got in and backed out of her parking spot, leaving Shane alone to watch her tail lights disappear in the distance.

Excerpt 
Copyright @ Nomi Summers 2019 
 
“Is that old lighthouse still up at North Point?” he asked. 
“It sure is. They closed it to the public several years back, so you can’t get to it by the main gate. You can still get out to it, but you have to park down a side road and then walk up the coast for about a quarter of a mile.”
Shane looked at her and grinned. “Take a walk with me?” 
“You mean, to the lighthouse?”
“I’d love to see it.” 
She thought to herself for a moment about all that needed to be done at the resort, but something about taking a walk up the shore to the abandoned lighthouse with Shane was calling out to her. Plus, she hadn’t seen it herself in years.
“Okay, up here about a mile, you’ll see a small opening. Turn left onto the dirt road, and then park anywhere on the side of the road.”
Shane followed her directions and parked the truck on the wooded road. They walked a short way to an opening that landed them on a deserted beach, then headed north up the shoreline. Shane stopped every few minutes to look for Petoskey stones, a native stone to the area that was commonly found on the shores of Lake Michigan. His excitement was infectious. 
“Wow, it’s even cooler looking now that it’s abandoned,” he said as they grew closer to the lighthouse. “Can you still get inside?” 
“I don’t think so. And even if you could, I don’t think it’s a good idea.”
“Chicken?” he challenged her as he started jogging toward it. The lighthouse jetted off into the water on a rocky base, and the two had to climb those rocks to reach it. Once atop, Shane tried the door, but it was locked. He disappeared around the other side, and Avery scanned the area to make sure nobody else was nearby. She was already a bit nervous that they were trespassing, and now he wanted to go inside the abandoned lighthouse that had been closed for years? She had to admit, this was the most excitement she’d felt since she was a teenager when they used to sneak around so Dax wouldn’t find out they were dating. When he finally did catch them, he wasn’t happy. But after a few months he realized he could either spend time with them together, or Shane was going to keep disappearing to spend time alone with Avery, so he dropped the protective older brother act and gave them his blessing.
“Avery, over here!” she heard him yell from the other side. She met up with him to find he had opened a side door. 
“Shane! What are you doing? We can’t go in there. How did you even get that door open?”
“I pushed.” He grinned. “Go to the top with me? I bet the views are amazing from up there.” 
“If we get caught, we are going to get into some serious trouble.”
“Are you always this much fun?” he teased. “What happened to that fearless girl I used to know?” 
“She grew up and got responsible. At least I can say that for one of us.” But her comment fell on deaf ears as Shane disappeared inside. Avery couldn’t help but follow him. The adrenaline of sneaking into the lighthouse was exhilarating, and she didn’t mind the thought of being alone with Shane at the top. 
She followed him in and closed the door behind her. A musty smell greeted her as she made her way up the creaky stairs to try to catch up to Shane, who was halfway to the top. 
“Shane!” she hollered up in a soft yell as if someone would hear her. “Wait up, there are cobwebs everywhere!”
“Be careful on these stairs,” he yelled down as he waited for her, allowing her to pass him so she would be in front of him. As she passed, he put his hands on her waist to steady her, setting off a chain reaction in her body. He always had a way of making her feel safe. “Here, you go ahead of me so I can catch you if you fall.” 
“I’m not going to fall.” She gave him a playful smile, but she was comforted knowing he was behind her. 
When they reached the top step, both of their mouths dropped in awe. The view of Lake Michigan from the top of the watchtower was spectacular. The lake went on for what seemed like an eternity, and the 360-degree views of the area were stunning. Unable to see across, the massive lake disappeared into an abyss of blue until it melted into a different shade from the cloudless sky. The watchtower was about ten feet in diameter, with an opening for the staircase in the middle, making it a tight fit for two people. Avery clung to a brass railing near the window. She felt Shane come up behind her and wrap his arms around her waist, enveloping her in the sweetest embrace. 
She turned her body around to face him, and he kept his arms around her. She could feel his warm breath as he leaned in and cupped her cheek with one hand. She leaned into it, allowing him to caress her face. 
“I’ve missed you, Avery.” His voice was low. She closed her eyes, taking in the moment. She had a feeling he wanted to finish the kiss that nearly started last night outside of Ripples, and she couldn’t think of any reason to stop him.
